SAO, expected that, but Biblia Koshodou no Jiken Techou.... Interesting, I may need to read this considering how good the sales are. Now if only there was an english translation somewhere.

So Highschool DxD is no 7. Its shame there is no Zero no Tsukaima since the author still fighting cancer.

Man, that is fantastic. Three quarters of a million for a couple mystery novels, most of which were 5-10 years old. Very nice.

I hope with this they make a season 2. Reki is the best heroine in Hidan no Aria.

Agreed! The anime didn't sell too well but I'm hoping the novels made up for it >_<

Really looking forward to the SAO season 2 announcement. I'm also surprised Sakurasou made it on the list. I'm loving the anime but I never saw the light novels rank. Probably SAO's fault.

Agreed, but if they do, they damn well better at least make it through the Sherlock Arc, otherwise I'ma rage like no other...

Waiting for Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei (5) anime adaption!

Biblia Koshodou no Jiken Techou (2), probably needs a bit more material before an anime adaption.

Ookami Kodomo no Ame to Yuki was also a great movie, hope everyone can watch it when the BD comes out.

Kind of surprise that Ben-To is not anywhere on the list. I actually thought that it is/was a popular series.

I'm surprised haruhi with the no appearance of haruhi on the list. It's true that no new volume came out but it normally make it in the totals series list. Oh well. Biblia doing almost 1 million volume is amazing.

Congrats for these two. SAO got a sudden boost within 6 months for a long running series and Biblia got that many sales with only three volumes.

Glad to see PapaKiki, Nobuna and especially HnA selling well, didn't really expect them to - unlike with Haganai for example.

Biblia is really selling astonishingly well, kinda weird that we got so little info on it. I mean, the synopsis reads somewhat interesting, but how the hell can it sell that good?
