For two years running, The Ryuo’s Work is Never Done!/Ryuuou no Oshigoto! has topped Kono Light Novel ga Sugoi!

The series is offered in English by BookWalker, who describes it:
The Ryuo’s Work is Never Done! is a story about a teenage boy named Yaichi Kuzuryu who happens to be the strongest shogi player in history, holding the top title of “Ryuo”(Dragon King). One fateful day, shogi-loving elementary student, Ai Hinatsuru, appears before him claiming that he promised to be her master. But was such a promise really ever made? Thus began their master and disciple relationship!
