One Piece, Naruto, Bleach and Nisekoi in the manga top 10. Also Ro-Kyu-Bu! in the light novels one. This is a very good week.

OP's sales figures being as high as ever and Gin no Saji off to a strong start. All's right with the world.

Am i the only one that think Ansatsu Kyoushitsu sales will raise like SNK when the anime is release?
I think Ansatsu has a high chance of taking the second place of Manga sales of this year.

volume 13 - 5 days - 29159
volume 14 - 2 days - 11368
Weekly light novel releases (from 20/10/2014)
Monthly light novel sales ranks (from Jan 2015)
Bestselling light novel volumes of the year/all time* (and more in the same club).

Fuck. I saw it as the number 7 and immediately assumed it was doing good. I also thought the anime had helped boost the light novels sales. I guess i was very wrong then.

It did. Or, rather, the first season back in 2011 did.

It's fairly unusual for a second anime series to give much of a boost to a LN source material. Which is part of the reason why so many of them never get sequels.

Out of curiosity, how many volumes the two seasons of the anime adapted? And is there any hope for a third season? Although after you telling me those numbers i think i already know the answer...

Need to start reading this also.

Erm, could have sworn there was an announcement a while ago that Ro-Kyu-Bu! ended with volume 13. Anyone clarify this? Great for STB though, loving the anime.

I don't know. Sorry. I haven't actually watched the anime or read the LN. As for future series, that will depend on the success of the anime and peripherals rather than the LN themselves, particularly if the series is now finished.

If the main story ended with volume 13, though, then the drop makes sense. Like I said, I'm not following this series actively, so I wouldn't know these things.

Ok, no problem. And i really hope that's the reason for the drop in sales.

If i can remenber correctly, the previous two seasons did fairly well, so not everything is lost regarding a third season.

I've heard some pretty outlandishly long Light Novel names in my time, but this one takes the cake.

Just.... why?

Done deliberately as a record breaker I think. That's not (quite) even the full title.

Oops, completely missed Prison School up there. Cool thing that the volume sales are fairly solid. It's a pretty cool manga.

It's the trend with LN's now. Basically they try and put the synopsis into the title to attract those who may be interested. It's a way of fighting for attention among the other titles on the storefront. However, I think that soon LN's will start using single word titles to differentiate themselves from the noise.

Glad to see that Noushou Sakuretsu Girl's sales are increasing compared to the previous volume (though I guess that's par for the course with novels adapted form Vocaloid Songs. I wonder if other female-oriented light novel labels will jump on that trend since right now only Kadokawa Beans Bunko seems to be publishing them AFAIK). I just started to read it and it's quite interesting so far, even if the story seems to be barely related to the original song (though I'm still at the beginning of the novel, so maybe it will be more apparent later?).

Also it's quite funny to see that the Kadokawa Bunko re-edition of RDG is selling so well yet the Sneaker Bunko re-edition with Mel Kishida's artwork isn't selling enough to rank.

Bleach outsells toriko per volume but still gets beat at the year end list :O
Ansatsu is doing great with no long running anime (needs more chapters to adapt)

Good for Naruto, Attack On Titan, Highschool DxD, and Sora No Otoshimono. I was hoping to see Gintama, Black Butler, and the Monogatari series in the ranks, though. I gotta check out Nisekoi.

Manga
*1. 2,075,407 2,076,189 One Piece Vol.73

Insane and fantastic sales as always. Nothing more to say.

*4. *,482,045 *,482,232 Kuroko no Basket Vol.26

Its always great to see Kuroko no Basket doing well. Love the manga and the anime as well.

*5. *,409,194 *,409,194 Ansatsu Kyoushitsu Vol.8

Very enjoyable series. I look forward to an anime adaptation in the future.

*8. *,198,152 *,198,152 Nisekoi Vol.11

Looks like Nisekoi got an anime boost. I approve! I'm also glad they are releasing the manga in North America as well.

*9. *,157,617 *,157,617 New Prince of Tennis Vol.12

Nice to see Prince of Tennis doing well. I know a lot of people don't like it. But I'm still a fan.

12. *,*75,200 *,*75,200 Kangoku Gakuen Vol.12

Underrated manga. Nice sales though.

17. *,*46,650 *,459,085 Terra Formars Vol.8

Still selling very well. Can't wait for the anime.

35. *,*22,475 *,126,459 Toaru Majutsu no Index Vol.13

I'm currently reading the novels and they are fantastic. Maybe I'll pick up the manga in the future.
38. *,*20,011 1,570,653 Shingeki no Kyojin Vol.12

Still hanging around? You deserve it though.

43. *,*18,930 *,243,977 Nanatsu no Taizai Vol.7

Solid overall sales good job. Will definitely boost if an anime is announced in the future.


Light Novels and Anime/Manga related books
*1. 21,233 *21,233 Strike the Blood Vol.10

Nice! I really enjoy the anime. I'm hoping Baka-Tsuki decided to translate this in the future.

10. *9,547 **9,547 Golden Time Vol.8

I'm surprised this doesn't sell better.

18. *6,377 *63,990 Highschool DxD Vol.17

Yes! Highschool DxD with over 63,000 copies! Not exactly Sword Art Online sales but oh well.

Good to see Golden Time make the list, though the sales aren't very impressive. I had heard that it didn't sell as well as many of the other LNs that have gotten anime adaptations. I'm just glad that they are actually doing the whole story and not doing it half-assed the way they did Pet Girl!

STB selling like hotcakes.

Great for Nisekoi too, despite its 40+ consecutive filler chapters

Probably because of its anime. It looks like it is doing a great job advertising the story. =D STB is selling that much probably because of the same reason as Nisekoi *-*

Lol...One Piece doesn't give a shit about Naruto.

We are already used to see that big numbers on One Piece sold copies, the only manga that can compete with One Piece selling history is Shingeki no Kyojin (actually).

That might be true, if SnK sales will be consistent for the next years and if the manga will published for more than 30 volumes.

One Piece, amazing as always. Been waiting to see this since December! Even volume 72 made it onto the list. Gin no Saji is also amazing, haven't watch/read it yet, but it's doing so well as a SOL series.

Actually no. Shingeki no Kyojin's hype kinda died down. I doubt volume 12 sales could even reach 2mil (anytime soon). One Piece releases a volume every 3months, Shingeki no Kyojin releases a volume every 5months (correct me if I am wrong). If anything, it's Hunter x Hunter that is closer, well, despite the hiatuses.

Nothing really interesting here aside for Jump dominating the list.

It kinda annoys me that Jump is so dominating. Seems unfair. I hope there is more break out manga not from Jump each year.

Indeed only Hunter x Hunter can put up numbers in the same solar system as One Piece. Ofcourse thats at its best and while being active, which seems like only a dream at the moment. Shingeki isn't even in the same galaxy as the Elite. Although it has done well, it can't last much longer before petering out (it certainly can not put up numbers in the millions consistently since last millenium like OP and HxH).

So the current Strike the Blood arc is "Return of the Alchemist" and the anime is about to end so that means there will be three wonderful volumes not adapted, that's a shame.

Doesn't look like anything but chapter one is translated so far.

I'm sorry, but I disagree with the facts you spouted.

It is true that there is nothing that could match One Piece at the moment. One Piece is basically Japan itself, unless another hidden gem takes Japan by storm again.

Hunter x Hunter cannot out out the same sort of numbers as Shingeki, let alone One Piece.

You are perhaps misinformed, but Shingeki volume 12 came with a limited edition of the Isle's Notebook OVA, and that sold about or around 500k. Combined with the standard edition's sales, you'd get 2 million or close to 2 million. That is elite class... No that is above elite class.

Reaching 1 million is considered a feat only 'elite' series can manage like Sakamoto desu ga?, Naruto (give or take about 1 month), Kimi in Todoke (again, long term sales), Yotsubato!.. Few right? Berserk, Vinland Saga and Vagabond can't even reach those numbers yet they are extremely popular and well received. Hunter x Hunter belongs to the 1 million class, with its recent manga sales.

Disclaimer: I am a fanboy of and I read all 3 series.

Strike the blood at the top of the light novel list...

This is why we can't have nice things.
The end is nigh
