That gap between SAO and everyone else is huge.
Index is 5th though, so I'm happy. :D

Sword Art Online ftw.

But i'm surprised Accel World is in second.. but I guess its not a surprise since the producer of SAO is writing the story of Accel World. bwaha

I'm surprised that there's one on the top 10 list that hasn't had an anime adaptation. (#4) I had to laugh at PapaKiki making the list at #10 because I thought of what the typical clientele might look like.

It has only been around for a year. It probably doesn't have enough content yet. I'll expect to see it late 2013.

Oreimo = M<OEMOEMOEMEOEMEOEM>EMOEMIEKMEOEFsx

The light novels are surprisingly entertaining.
