Still waiting for more translation of Tobiichi Devil. Origami is the best girl and that is a fact.
Kickstarter for Rokujouma is fully funded. Good work everyone. Lets wait for the result of our hard work together.

It is doing just fine. The total weekly sales from all its volumes are still good. It sold 265,515 units this week. Oricon counts up to rank 500, so as long as it charts in the Top 50 later on or the 2014 Yearly Rankings, the additional sales should be reflected.

From Aug 11~Sep 28 (7 weeks worth)

Both cases are the second highest reported sales for the series. Log Horizon will probably overtake volume 7 with next week's rankings.

Could I ask for the link of the full Oricon LN & manga rankings this week (as in, up to rank 500)? There's a series that I wanna check how much it sold. I'll manage even if the link's in Japanese. :)

I know, right? Too bad the latest volume of Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun released in the middle of the summer season and next one will release only next year; I'd love to see this kind of anime boost for it.

Will be interesting to see the future sales for TG's sequel, whether a direct sequel or not. October 11th can't come fast enough!!!

So basically this is good considering previous sales for the novels.
Still not that great compared to other series. Actually not sure, I don't know much about LN sales.

Thanks for the info.

Not bad at all. Lets see how Vol.14 does in a few weeks.

*6. 10,161 *10,161 Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari Vol.7

Excellent. I didn't expect to see it in the list at all. It would be pretty cool to see if it gets an adaption soon.

From 3 days of sales, Log Horizon's 15454 sales puts it as the 152nd bestselling release of the year to date out of what I include on my spreadsheets. It should be able to get a second week in, which would likely leave it just outside the top 100.

To put you in perspective, there are 74 new light novel releases coming out this week alone. Admittedly this is rather higher than a usual week, but on the other hand that's just the stuff on amazon's list of light novels, which excludes many things that would be included on these lists, and on my spreadsheet - including, incidentally, log horizon volume 8 (which is particularly bizarre given that they count volume 1 as a light novel but whatever...)

It's comfortably within the top 10% of sellers.

Chaika is rather more disappointing. Especially considering last week's sales figure, I was really thinking it was a given that it would pass 10k (thus getting on my spreadsheet) and beat volume 2 to become the bestselling volume of the series. Log Horizon's previous bestseller came out in December and thus was already experiencing the anime sales boost, whereas Chaika's peak came out well before the anime was even being thought about, and it seems the anime series hasn't been effective enough to push it above that level.

Space Brothers at top of the food chain. Thank God for that. Well actually I'm pretty happy about all the series in the top 10 manga section this week. I should probably start reading Billy Bat soon too.

Hopefully Barakamon gets a season 2 in the future.

Amazing to see Guyver on the list! Even when i've seen it for the first time, it was already published for like 10 years! And it's still selling! Shame there's only 1 volume per year/
