Sword Art Online Spin-off Wins the Longest Light Novel Title of 2015

Japanese media website CUPO conducted a survey of all of the light novels published in Japan from April of 2015 until March of 2016 to determine which light novel deserves the honor of possessing the “Longest Light Novel Title of 2015”. The rules of the survey were simple: count all the characters in the light novel’s title and subtitle. Volume numbers were excluded, and when a special edition version of the light novel exists (with extra goodies such as drama CDs/OVAs/Specials packed in), only the title of the standard edition was used to determine the total character count.

First place went to Sigsawa Keiichi and Kuroboshi Kouhaku’s Sword Art Online Alternative Gun Gale Online IV 3rd Squad Jam Betrayers’ Choice (ソードアート・オンライン オルタナティブ ガンゲイル・オンラインIV ―サード・スクワッド・ジャム ビトレイヤーズ・チョイス〈上〉―) with a total of 57 katakana characters.
