Well... I'm not that surprised. Mostly because of Index, because the original novel (a.k.a Toaru Majutsu no Index) have been into Sugoi's top 10 many times since 5 years ago, I think.

Okay, so i have a few problems with that list.
1) why isn't Utsuro no Hako to Zero no Maria number one?
2) why isn't Utsuro no Hako to Zero no Mario not on the list
and 3) why do I feel like Utsuoro no Hako no Mario is being underrated?

I think it's not that well known in Japan in the first place for some reason. I tried looking it up on accessup.org but I didn't get search results.

That's probably because of how slow the releases are, since there are just 5 volumes till now, the release date of the sixth volume is January 10, 2013.

It was probably a year ago when I finished Vol 3, thanks for reminding me of this.
And I'm glad Index:NT is up there, my biribiri need some love. :)

i think they ranked it by sales.

anyway, i think i know most of the novel in the list..but the number 3...rokka no yuusha? what the novel about?
i think all top 10 light novel already got an anime of their own except for rokka no yuusha.

plus, bento getting no 14 really unexpected. lol. i wonder if the plot get better in the novel.

Well, according to wikipedia the annual light novel guide book Kono Light Novel ga sugoi! publishes a list of the top ten most popular novel and their characters and they rank it according to what the readers polled on the internet. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kono_Light_Novel_ga_Sugoi!)

Utsuro no Hako to Zero no Maria

the first volume is good.Though the translation makes the novel a bit more awkward that it would be in its native language. The only reason why this is not on the top ten list, is because the later volumes are not that good. There is only so many times you can do this plot over. I have read the later volumes myself, volumes 1/3/4 are pretty good. Just the rest seem forced.

To be honest i believe that fan service is terrible

Vol 5 is out fo Utsuro no HAko to Zero no Maria, and its building up some major suspense for the following vol 6. I really enjoyed the few moments of Hoshino's maniacal laugh

For those who are interested, on accessup.org (they changed the title of the site but that was the old link) is the site where Japanese fans give ratings and reviews to manga, anime, and light novels. A lot of the reviews might not make sense but if you actually read the translations of the reviews, it'll make sense to you. (my Japanese friend for an example translated them for me) From what I heard, the people who bother giving their input are some of the most hardcore Otakus in Japan.
