Eh not bad sales for a spin-off (still no idea what it's about). Got my copy coming next week.

Probably gonna have to add Sakurako-san LNs to my next order. Really good sales, hoping if the anime is good it can give a hefty boost.

Here's hoping Asteisk will be showing up in the next few weeks with a fab boost.

Uwoooh!? more than 15 k before falling from the ranking? Was Reinousha Minato doing that well before? I don't remember seeing it above 10k but that may be just me.... it's been a while since the volume 8 got out after all...
Anyway in whichever case, that's always great to see something good selling properly.

Ooh Log Horizon. Now there's a title I haven't seen in awhile.

I predict thatSakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru's sales will rise even further now with the anime airing.

Volume 8 sold 16422 before dropping out. Still, holding up pretty well for more than a year's gap between volumes. Especially as there was a second version which didn't rank.

Lance N' Masques 5 failed to rank in the top 500 on release week; it also didn't get on the top 500 bunko ranks. Note: This is normal for this series - it is one of the lowest, if not the absolute lowest, selling light novel series to ever get an anime adaptation (excluding Momo Kyun Sword, of course, which was a web light novel which has still never had a physical release at all).

Shinmai Maou no Testament Light was 97th.

Other series have not appeared on the rankings yet.

Sorry, I just posted it without clarifying as much as usual. It's weekly for the same period as this thread, and the rank figure is for all books rather than just the bunko one (as not all light novels are bunko format I would miss out things like Overlord if I used the bunko one).
Source is POS via book-rank.net (which I find easier to use than the original site that POS is posted on).

To be fair, most of those are self-published webnovels, and not actually physically released. I'm sure you could find some truly awful titles on English language self-publishing sites as well if you looked.

"An Otome Game’s Burikko Villainess Turned into a Magic Otaku", incidentally, was adapted into a light novel (published under Alphapolis' Regina Books label) which was titled "One day, I became a Burikko Villainess"

To be fair, most of those are self-published webnovels, and not actually physically released. I'm sure you could find some truly awful titles on English language self-publishing sites as well if you looked.

"An Otome Game’s Burikko Villainess Turned into a Magic Otaku", incidentally, was adapted into a light novel (published under Alphapolis' Regina Books label) which was titled "One day, I became a Burikko Villainess"
And most of those are comedy/parody, just wanted to post some silly titles.
It's funny that that one is getting made into an actual LN because it's being translated by the same guy who translated Evil God Average which also ended up becoming an LN, nice coincidence I guess, that was a nice read too, pretty funny.

That's good.

Where can I buy this from?
It'd be nice to own it.


If anyone knows, then send me a PM or comment on my profile.

To know if the anime helps boost LN sales of a series, we need to see if the early volumes make the weekly rankings. We have to wait until next week for this week's results.

You can check different light novel rankings at book-rank.net for the first volume of each series that has an anime currently airing. Here are the links for each series Vol 1:

Rakudai: http://book-rank.net/rank/rank.cgi?mode=rank&word=9784797374681

Asterisk: http://book-rank.net/rank/rank.cgi?mode=rank&word=9784040666976

Heavy Object: http://book-rank.net/rank/rank.cgi?mode=rank&word=9784048680691

Lance N’ Masques: http://book-rank.net/rank/rank.cgi?mode=rank&word=9784865290097&booktype=0

Sakurako-san: http://book-rank.net/rank/rank.cgi?mode=rank&word=9784041006955

Shomin Sample: http://book-rank.net/rank/rank.cgi?mode=rank&word=9784758042734&booktype=0

AntiMagic Academy: http://book-rank.net/rank/rank.cgi?mode=rank&word=9784040710822&booktype=0

Sakurako-san Shomin Sample and AntiMagic Academy just aired like yesterday so will have to wait on how well they do after the anime aired.

Rakudai, Asterisk, Lance and Heavy Object had aired before this week started, and so far Rakudai Vol 1 is doing the best of all these series Vol 1 after anime aired. Rakudai Vol 1 is ranking high daily since the start of this week, so we can mostly expect it to make Oricon weekly ranking Oct 5-11. Asterisk Vol 1 is also doing well but it will probably not make it or just barely.

Just a few words of slight caution about the above:

Firstly, remember what the rankings cover. Other than POS, all those rankings are just for single (albeit large) stores/chains.

Secondly, if you're trying to work out what will or will not rank in next week's rankings, you have to bear in mind what Oricon covers:
The top 50 bunko, which is more or less analogous to the top 50 bunko on POS.
The top 50 book, which does not include any bunko format releases. This season all anime adaptations are of bunko format releases, so they won't be on here.
The literature books ranking, which is a subset of the book ranking.
The top 20 light novels, which rarely add any extra volumes to the list.

Third, bear in mind that different days have different weighting, and that some volumes that will definitely get on the rankings aren't included in the data we have so far - or indeed aren't released yet. Dengeki Bunko's releases don't come out until tomorrow, for instance, and will be taking at least 3 spots on the weekly rankings even with just those 2 days, probably more.

Fourth, and perhaps most significantly for this situation, bear in mind that different series will get their sales boost on different days. If you look at Asterisk and Rakudai, it looks like Asterisk gets its boost all at once, whereas that of Rakudai is more spread out. This may be a case of spreading interest in the series (which would indicate growing popularity), but is more likely just a result of when the series is aired in different places. This makes it difficult to actually compare, especially as Asterisk's boost doesn't come until Sunday, meaning we won't get to see the extent of it until the day before or even the same day as the full weekly rankings come out.

But it's a novel, not LN, what you even post is "文庫" not "ライトノベル", the problem is MAL mixed bunko and light novel but treat bunko=light novel, or are you saying Keigo Higashino's novel is LN?

And no, it never in LN chart.
This is overall chart.

This is LN chart, which Sakurako-san is not there.

Bear in mind that this ranking used to be titled "Light Novels and anime-related books". Even though the second half is gone from the title, the list on MAL still has the same criteria for inclusion. This is why the likes of that Tokyo Ghoul thing got included - and Sakurako-san is a million times closer to being a light novel than that is... Sakurako-san, having an anime adaptation currently airing, would thus be eligible for MAL's ranking list under this criteria even if it isn't considered to be an actual light novel.

It's also worth noting that, while - as I already stated - Oricon doesn't consider it to be a light novel, there are other places that do, and not just sites like wikipedia. Admittedly this is usually because they treat everything by a given label as either "light novel" or "not light novel" and there are other things published under the same label as it that are considered light novels, including by Oricon. Thus it falls in a sort of grey zone where it is, if you want my personal perspective on the matter, not wrong to claim either that it is a light novel or that it isn't one.

Sorry but not just oricon, Kadokawa(publisher) also never treat it as Light Novel, also Amazon.
And it's "english wikipedia", not "wikipedia", because Japan's wikipedia is label as regular novel.


and there are other things published under the same label as it that are considered light novels, including by Oricon.

You serious?

Shinrei Tantei Yakumo is included in Oricon's light novel lists. Your own link above shows that. Or are you now disregarding the thing that you initially used as the justification for your argument?

But still, read the first paragraph of the post you quoted.

Oh well, then this time Oricon is not right, because Shinrei Tantei Yakumo is always and only regular novel, same as Sakurako-san.

Still doesn't change the fact Sakurako-san is not a Light Novel, or show me a place that have more authority than Kadokawa or at least Amazon.

The last volume of Kagerou Daze came out in March (this is a ranking of Japanese sales, not English ones). Its last appearance on the weekly rankings was for w/c 4th May, although we have data for more than that thanks to it appearing in May's monthly rankings. It will be in the yearly rankings when they come out as well.
