happy to see that Kui Naki Sentaku 1 is still selling :D

I should search the number of the special edition but I guess the total amount between the two has already passed the 400k mark

I wouldn't be surprised if they announce they have to make another reprint like the last time!

-----

apart from that I'm also happy to see in the manga list the latest volumes of Kuroko and Shingeki (stay strong you two!!)

and also NGNL and Replace V in the novel list~

Great sales for Diamond no Ace :) I hope after they finish this season of the anime they can continue it in the future.

Nice for Kuroko no Basket, Assassination Classroom, One Punch-Man and Shingeki no Kyojin. Always glad to see these series do well.

Nisekoi broke the 300,000 barrier :) I'm happy for that.

Haikyuu!! anime is really helping the manga sell, reminds me of when Kuroko's anime came out.

Season two of Hataraku Maou-Sama when? Season 3 of Index when? And I'm glad for No Game No Life. That show definitely needs a 2nd season in the future.

I can't wait until next week first half manga sales. From the what I've seen Snk will most likely be number 1. At least in the first half sales. I also predict that Haikyuu will get 3rd spot or at least top 5 spot.

Oh Please :O the colors are awesome, it would take a step back if it didn't have color, I don't need a gray dulled filled colors hampering the fun.

NGNL's sales seems to be dropping. Quite a shame, I was hoping it would manage to reach 100k+ sales on a volume but unless it bounces back next week it probably won't happen.

Mahouka completely disappeared from the rankings and it looks like Kagerou Days will follow suit soon enough.

I wonder if the sales of Appraiser Q are going to pick up after the movie get released at the end of the month. Would be nice to see more volumes rankings.


The light novel had problems with the oricon ranks,and their sales numbers were "erased',those volumes already passed the 100.000 mark

I wouldn't count a third season of Index out yet, it's been a long time coming and there are still 7 more 10th anniversary announcements left. Some of which are going to be revealed early June, so there's still a possibility.

The sales for NGNL are projected to be around 4k which is far from abysmal, and the sale boost for the novels was insane.

TWGOK got 3 seasons with sales of around 2k...

Looks like Lucy's boobs weren't enough to save FT's sorry ass this time.

Meanwhile, Sinbad #3 is selling 130k copies combined (45k of that being more expensive versions with a bundled OVA). Good call, Japan.

Vol.42 was actually out 7 days for 310,759 1st weeks sales. Vol.43 was only out for 3 days for 181,569 1st week sales. So it probably hasn't dropped as much as some in this thread seem to think.
