Last time i heard about Log Horizon was because the author had taxes problem, it's weird to see it in the list.


He managed to solve those issues and has managed to update the web novel quite frequently. It is already at vol 14

Also the official LN is back in the market with vol 12 scheduled for summer release.

Yup yup Onii-sama still dominate.

When even the rankings is full of cliches and genericness. Nipponjins surely don't care.

Nothing suprising except for
*4. 305,918 Tensei shitara Slime Datta Ken Vol.7

This isekai manga seems to be good..?

Glad to know that Mahouka is doing great, I'm also looking forward to that re zero season 2 (waiting patiently)


I need to reread Ao no Exorcist, I kinda stopped reading it for some reason, probably lack of time, I need to get into it again.

Nice One Piece vol cover, love it.
