When are they going to make the 2nd season of Mahouka I mean it's selling pretty good.


Can't wait to see Lina UwU

More likely can't wait to see Izumi and Kasumi.

Glad to see Ryuuou no Oshigoto! doing well. Also Kirby somehow managed to get back into the top 10.

Aug 24, 2018 6:27 AM by fullmetalmasify

Sasuga Onii-sama, always getting no. 1!

Aug 24, 2018 4:09 AM by Jiharo

As expected of Onii-sama, he's still number

Aug 24, 2018 2:55 AM by Shinomiyas

Hmm nice to see Mahouka, Ryuuou No Oshigoto and SAO Alt GGO do so well in sales. Managing to get the top three places is really impressive.

Why is it so similar to this one:

Oh ... right ... it's Nippon we talking about here.

Aug 24, 2018 12:33 AM by Swagernator

Yeah, I attach me to the following comment above me: Really, what does still need that Mahouka (and other well successful LN titles) finally his/her sequel adaptation gets? It screams just for a continuation (TV-series) after the seals to judge.

Edit: Keyword Date a Live: Any informations about the upcoming 3rd. season? It has been a while since the announcement...

Aug 24, 2018 12:30 AM by Tenryuu1

Onii-sama's #1 again as usual.

>15. *3,804 *12,645 Itai no wa Iya nano de Bougyoryoku ni Kyokufuri Shitai to Omoimasu. Vol.4

Damn, pray for the anime adaptation! Must see Maple-chan and protecc Maple-chan!
