As the leader of the Light Novel Club and an avid light novel reader, I naturally have to face the question: just how much do I like the novels I’ve read? And to answer that question, why not do the hottest thing on the Internet for ranking how much you like stuff: a tier list?
So I found an up-to-date tier list maker for light novels released in English, and rather than just fill it out normally, I decided to livestream myself as I filled it out. Here’s the video of my live ranking of all the light novels I’ve read (and yes, that means you get to hear my voice):
And if this video is a “too long; didn’t watch” for you, here’s the final tier list image. Each tier has a sub-tier for titles that I’ve only read one volume of since I’m generally not quite as sure about how much I like a title until I’ve read at least two volumes. (Exceptions are for titles that only ever had one volume released in English with no plans for more volumes.) Also, I pretty much like everything on this list aside from the “dropped” list, and even the titles in the “dropped” list aren’t necessarily bad; some of them I think are actually quite good, and I just didn’t feel like continuing with them for one reason or another.
If you’re wondering about why I ranked a particular title where I did and don’t feel like going through the video for my explanation, leave a comment and I’ll give my reasoning.
And if you want to make your own light novel tier list, you can do so here!
(Oh, and yes, I do now have a Twitch channel where I stream myself playing video games! Currently, I’m going through Persona 5 The Royal, with plans for other games to be added to the rotation, so follow me if you’re interested. I stream on Wednesdays and Sundays at 9pm ET.)
