English and Japanese Light Novel Releases for Week Commencing 5th January 2015

It’s a new year, and a new set of light novel releases.

As Amazon seem to have changed the way their sort by popularity option works so that it no longer corresponds even remotely with how well the book is selling (Mahouka is 12th by popularity while #1 bestselling book, while the list is topped by something that is currently #8770 in bestselling books?) I am no longer translating titles based on their position within this ranking.
