Oregairu Dominates Kono Light Novel Ga Sugoi! For a Third Year in a Row

Takarajimasha’s Kono Light Novel ga Sugoi! (This Light Novel is Amazing!) is a guide book that publishes a list of the top ten most popular light novels and their characters according to readers polled on the Internet. An introduction to each of the works comes with each listing, along with an interview of the light novel’s author or authors for first place. Many of the light novels that have been listed in this guide book were later adapted into anime series. Most of the light novels listed contain a series of volumes, but some single-volume light novels also get listed. The first release of the guide book was on November 26, 2004 and is the 2005 listing. Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu and Toaru Majutsu no Index have appeared in the top ten in six out of ten issues of Kono Light Novel ga Sugoi!, while the Haruhi Suzumiya series and the Book Girl series have appeared in five.
