As anticipated, Wazamonogatari took rank #1 immediately upon release. Hopefully it'll hold steady. Nice to see Okobore Hime in top 10 too.~

Fate/Protorype and Labyrinth are great and Sakurai is talented writer and Fate/Strange Fake is one of the best in the series.

Fab to see the Monogatari Series still selling incredibly well, long may it continue. Kinda don't want it to end as long as it keeps it's exceptionally high quality.

DOWL Masters just reaching 10k, shame it's not more, come on Yen Press hurry up and license this!

KonoSuba and Grimgar (which I should check out) showing first stages of anime boost. Will be intersting to see how they along with those series with no visible boost end up at the seasons end.

Actually 12k for first week is not that good.If a manga/LN has below 30k sales it is very obscure unless it is serialized on major magazines

I see. I still don't have the best understanding of how these sales work, I just saw it in second place and in a couple other spots and assumed it was doing well.

For me this is one of the top animes this winter the first 2 episodes were hilarious iam only sad cuz it will have only 11episodes wish it had more or atleast someday a 2nd season for it. Anyway lets hope the anime did the trick and gave a good boost to the source material so i can hope for some more seasons out of it^^

I'm sorry it might not have been good way to put it.
It is selling well compared with average LN and most likely bringing money for publisher.
I meant obscure as not on the radar of average Japanese nerd population yet as of now.

Glad Saijaku Muhai no Bahamut is on the charts, anime giving a nice boost, same with Kono Subarashii. Love these Harem series. Reading the manga version for both.

Monogatari Series is still going pretty strong. Not as much as it used to, but if he keeps his patterns, there should be 4 more books, which all will do pretty, I guess.

NGNL has another good week as well.

I'm a super fast reader, so 20 books should be no problem for me. I did finish the last HP book in about a day. I picked up the EN release of Kizu the other day, totally loving it. I hope they'll continue with the EN releases cause I'd love to collect them all! I may settle for fan translations until they get published though.

The books will at least continue until the author passes away, but I'm sure he's still got plenty of life in him! He may get tired of writing the stuff, but if James Patterson can keep writing Maximum Ride books I'm sure Nisiosin can keep going!

Well if my memory is right, this is first time ever Grimgar show up in Oricon.
Still wonder why Toho and A-1 choose adapt this unpopular LN(not a bad thing though).

I think it is, yes.
I guess it just got lucky, it feels like it's mostly trying to push Toho's new music division more than anything really so it's weird they'd go with something that's not very popular, not to mention they picked Nakamura's team for the job, instead of going for some more well established director, so it's like, it's weird, I wonder too.

I had a look in my Oricon data archive, it has been in the Top 10 Weekly Light Novel Series ever since June 29 to July 5, 2015 week. So it's been there for 29 weeks in a row now.

Thanks. Boy, that's huge. And it looks like the sales are not dropping anymore. They've basically stabilised above 10k for the past few weeks (I just checked some of the previous lists). That's probably among the leggiest anime effect ever.

Oh wow, the boosts already started. Grimgar wasnt even selling 10k before anime, surprising since rpg games setting LNs are trendy these days. Konosuba was already selling around 40k, nice. Bahamut is the most surprising, asterisk & cavalry werent really selling this well & getting early boosts like these.

yeah, it's even more impressive because there hasnt been a new volume since this boost started (last one came at june end) so this is all just anime boost.

k_s, what's the deal with prince of stride? the LNs come from Dangeki girls style which specifically targets female otaku right? Are there any other titles from this label that sell well?

Actually Rakudai did. Before the anime aired Rakudai Vol 1 had already sold almost 50k. During the first week after first episode aired, Rakudai Vol 1 added about 5k and most likely another 6k during the next week.
23. *4,819 *52,488 Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry Vol.1

I estimate Rakudai Vol 1 is almost 80k by now. Too bad it looks like Rakudai's boost is finally over now.

Konosuba was already selling around 40k, nice. Bahamut is the most surprising, asterisk & cavalry werent really selling this well & getting early boosts like these.


Actually Rakudai did. Before the anime aired Rakudai Vol 1 had already sold almost 50k. During the first week after first episode aired, Rakudai Vol 1 added about 5k and most likely another 6k during the next week.
23. *4,819 *52,488 Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry Vol.1

I estimate Rakudai Vol 1 is almost 80k by now. Too bad it looks like Rakudai's boost is finally over now.


oh so that's how it was. Thanx.

No wonder Kadokawa keeps making more LNs like these & give them 1 cour tv anime
Imagine a berserk anime by Yoshiaki kawajiri at Madhouse.

Now take a look at Berserk (2016).

k_s, what's the deal with prince of stride? the LNs come from Dangeki girls style which specifically targets female otaku right? Are there any other titles from this label that sell well?


I don't really know anything about it, but a lot of places treat it as a manga, and it is published under the Sylph Comics label.

The volumes are mostly several years old, though, so the series is probably only ranking because of the anime.

Saijaku Muhai no Bahamut and Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry are both GA Bunko, which is owned by Softbank, not Kadokawa, by the way.

Let's just see if either KonoSuba or Bahamut can sell over 100k total in the first month of anime airing or 150k total in 2 months or 200k total in 3 months, which was how much Rakudai accomplished. For now both of them are doing better than Asterisk did.

Sourced direct from the shoseki blog because book-rank.net was being slow at getting the rankings up, hence the weird formatting. The number on the left is the rank.

The books may well continue forever but I wonder if the promise to animate the whole thing will be kept that long.


It sells amazingly. Fans love it. Why would they stop?

It still sells very well, over 25K for Owarimonogatari. I'm not sure it will ever get low enough to stop making it, even if Owari 2 drops to 20K it would be worth making it. But it is not making what it sold as Bakemonogatari and Nisemonogatari once did so it has dropped a lot. It is way more than most other anime so it is probably still safe but my point is more that I don't think they imagined 22 or more volumes coming out when they made that promise.

So unless there is something else Aniplex and Kodansha wants to make you're right, they are probably good. Just hard to believe with already about 80 episodes made of the franchise.

I'm a super fast reader, so 20 books should be no problem for me. I did finish the last HP book in about a day. I picked up the EN release of Kizu the other day, totally loving it. I hope they'll continue with the EN releases cause I'd love to collect them all! I may settle for fan translations until they get published though.

The books will at least continue until the author passes away, but I'm sure he's still got plenty of life in him! He may get tired of writing the stuff, but if James Patterson can keep writing Maximum Ride books I'm sure Nisiosin can keep going!
NisioisiN is quite young so that won't be a problem. He is still writing 6 novels a year unless I'm missing some. 3 of them will be Monogatari this year. Game of Thrones, no new book since 2011? Japan's writers are so prolific by comparison.

I'm not sure if NisioisiN would be allowed to stop making more while it is making money unless Okitegami Kyouko is making even more money or something.

Hopefully thats the final date and doesn't get delayed any further.Maybe it's because of specials and stuff.Well either way I'll probably reread it in the meantime.

As for the anime...


I'd be up for Vol 4's movie adaption like some people were saying.Would transition well enough.(Need the chair meme to be animated, doesn't feel right)
