Nice first week there for Isekai Shokudou, especially with just 2 days of sales.

Could be one to watch out for in the future, I guess - and Hero Bunko doesn't exactly have many of those.

Ooh, quite happy to see Gekkan and Space Bros at top 3 for manga this week! Orange on the top 10 as well. Also, it looks like the 7th volume of Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru is ranked 3 on LN section for its week debut

Well that's a pleasant surprise. I hope the second season gives it a little boost.

I expected Naruto to last longer in the chart but still the volume will still reach 1.4k by the end of the year.

Cheers for Terra, Uchuu, Nanatsu and Jojo.
But it's important to remember that a movie review is subjective;it only gives you one person's opinion.

http://www.classzone.com/books/lnetwork_gr08/page_build.cfm?content=analyz_media&ch=30

It doesn't matter if you like LoGH,Monster etc.If you are a jobless or college/school dropout living in your mom basement, you are still an unintelligent loser. Taste in anime does not make you a better person.If elitist don't exist, casual pleb and shit taste also don't exist.

So I guess the new Tsubasa series is doing okay/well? Didn't expect that, considering how many fans got tired of CLAMP's bullsh*t and abandoned them and also many people abandoned the series after all those years of waiting.

Those are some pretty fantastic sales for a BL manga and those sales are more than well deserved. I really hope the series becomes long enough so we can hopefully get a TV adaption and it REALLY deserves it.

With the recent selling of Gekkan Shoujo, I'm pretty hopeful for a second season soon. It's only deserving.

Kyou wa Kaisha Yasumimasu. is doing well in both manga & LN ranking. Same goes for Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru and Biblia Koshodou no Jiken Techou. Would love to see anime adaptations of these series in near future.

Waiting for what? A sequel to Tsubasa? The ending was sorta of open but it was a proper ending.

Don't want to be a jerk but Taizai isn't that great. Plus it's already selling enough so I don't see why it needs even more Taizai.


Anyways it's nice seeing Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun selling well.

I'm DAMN happy for Orange! The sales increased way too much than the 3rd volume so I guess it's getting the popularity, especially after being ranked in the kono manga ga sugoi's male readers list and recommended manga in stores. It has such a beautiful story.

Well, maybe. I see what you mean there... Still I think it could be an anime, like SAO was (of course probably anime wont be at the same quality level as novels, but still... ) :<

Allow me to weigh in on this but didn't they skip *a lot* of material in order to make the show work? The first two Horizon novels are huge and would've taken at least another 10 episodes to adapt really ALL of the events.
Granted, I don't know about that other story you're talking about but figured I'd throw in my 2 cents either way.

On-topic: It may not be as prominent in the sales this week but I am really, really glad for the Nanatsu no Taizai manga. The books are really worth a read and it's cool that more and more people are sharing that view.

For a BL manga those are amazing sales. Most BL don't even make the threshold.

I actually like the anime version of nanatsu no taizai than the manga. Read the first 20 chapter and it felt mediocre at best. Watch 7 ep of the anime and I find it to be good. Hopefully when I continue the manga I will have the same amount of interest as the anime version.

Terra formers is also doing pretty good. Been a while since I've read the manga.

HJ Bunko aren't very big on doing anime adaptations, so I wouldn't get your hopes up. Which is a shame as they have quite a few good series. Then again, they do do them (eg. with Rokujouma last year) so it's not necessarily a futile hope.
