Nice nice.

I'd say that these last few Volumes including the end or Arc 2 and the begining of the new Arc 3(Sachstein/Melisande's uprising) have been very solid.I'm enjoying the buildup so far and the direction story is headed to.

If you had multiple anime on the screen at once it'd all be jumbled up. Kaneki Ken might become a ninja who guides souls to the afterlife Battlefront where they find peace and reincarnate to AIs.

really now? This chuuni series with it's dull-dead narration deserves an anime adaptation?

Now that I've said that, I think it might happen. 15k sales without anime for ln in 2 weeks is good. The publishers might push it for anime. Wouldnt mind actually, given the direction in anime will be better than LN.
Imagine a berserk anime by Yoshiaki kawajiri at Madhouse.

Now take a look at Berserk (2016).

YOU HAVE MY PERMISSION TO CRY.

Fab to see Vanadis at the top with some great sales, such a good series. Likewise fab to see Mahouka continue to sell like crazy. So nearly at 200k yet again in quick time. Beyond impressive.

Dragonar has a lot of volumes, chances of being licensed over here seem slim to none.

*9. *7,179 **7,179 Shinmai Maou no Testament Vol.9

Not bad with only 2 days sales, expecting a lot more next week obviously. Got my copy on the way, lovely cover (and I don't even like Yuki that much).

Might give Arifureta Shokugyou de Sekai Saikyou a try in the future...

Hmm, NT volume 14 still on the top 10, not sure if it can break 100k mark soon.

Yea they are different series in premise kinda. One has an imouto and another is just a delusional siscon with no sister. Though it's rumored that Imouto sae Ireba li. is pumping out the volumes for an adaptation.
Big Order (TV):great anime or greatest anime?

It's the same with Arifureta then. Cannibalistic superpower to the max.
Kickstarter for Rokujouma is fully funded. Good work everyone. Lets wait for the result of our hard work together.
