And MAL still didn't have anything about this series.

The rest are...Kamachi, SWO, Monogatari,etc... Usual residents.

Index NT vol3 selling better than vol4. Well, vol4 is a kinda weird volume.
And SAO has a larger sale in the latest volume than AW, though AW has 2 volumes in there. Will probably get a bigger boost once the anime airs.
And lol, HSDxD getting in there. Anime did its job well. S2 when?
