Oh... Look at that the series is finally showing signs of getting anime boost. Prison school selling fairly well. I bet when the anime airs it will get a huge boost in sales.

12. *50,562 *,206,563 World Trigger Vol.10

The ansatsu boost has been revealed.
Every volume has been boosted by 15K+ for the last several weeks but isn't shown on the list because it only goes to 50.

Not to be facetious but you do realize you can buy the Yen Press release? 3 volumes out (4th in april) & good translation quality. Give it a try

Prison School : This series has already been selling so well before the Anime was announced i Guarantee once it airs the sales would jump immensely XD

Monster Musume: This series has already been selling so well even before it was announced to have an anime and it has been doing well in the top of new yorks best seller top 10 adn had already reached over a 1 million copies sold ....Trust me for a Harem ecchi manga to be this popular already before an anime was made is really rare these days which shows how good it is.... XD

Gekkan shoujo Nozaki kun...... Best shoujo comedy to come out in recent years,,,,i hope it keeps selling well and a new season will be announced soon :)

Do you understand he's talking about this spin-off by Kino no Tabi's author and not about the original series?

Ansatsu Kyoushitsu is doing great with several volumes already selling millions. Nice to see Kyou wa Kaisha Yasumimasu. on the list again!

Kinda surprised that Nourin is on top 10. The anime was average, but the light novel might actually be good.

That No. 20 title though. Light novels with long title have become a trend in the recent years.

For what? Manga or novels?

For manga, I believe Oricon counts the top 500, but we only have access to the top 50. Lower rankings are probably made available to firms in the industry, which is who this data is really produced for.

The novel ranking on this site is an amalgamation of several different rankings put out by oricon (with their rankings adjusted and irrelevant volumes excluded). The main one is the top 50 bunko, but there's also the top 50 "books" (a ranking that excludes bunko format and manga, amongst other things) which usually has a significantly lower threshold, as well as a "light novel ranking" which is also included. Not included is a separate light novel ranking posted on the oricon website which has really limited restrictions on what is included, and a light novel series ranking. Again, data is counted well below the cutoff points but this is not made publicly available.

There are a couple of other rankings for novels that are just the ranks with no sales figures which are publicly available and go down well below oricon's ranks (top 500 in the case of POS), but these are ranks only and often have a slightly different order to the ranks we see on Oricon, on account of having different sources for the data. Similar things probably exist for manga as well but I don't follow manga sales enough to know what they are.

The anime already boosted Vol 16, released Dec 19th, from the usual ~70k to 108k, plus the previous volumes probably sold more as well.

Vol. 17 is released on Mar 20th, so we'll see next week if it gets better.

Oh... Look at that the series is finally showing signs of getting anime boost.


The live action movie is coming out in a couple of days, so there's a lot of talk and promo for it all over mainstream media right now. That's probably helping.

*2. 48,128 *48,128 Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online Vol.2

Glad to see SAO spinoff doing well. Still want to read first volume, didnt see any translations anywhere tho...


Not to be facetious but you do realize you can buy the Yen Press release? 3 volumes out (4th in april) & good translation quality. Give it a try


I know that, I was talking about Alternative version =)
