Only Sense Online and The New Gate made top 10 this week? As usual, nice to see the Monogatari franchise still going strong.

25th is the release date for MF Bunko J and MF Books titles this month, of which several (Fairytale Chronicles, Absolute Duo, Mushoku Tensei and Youkoso Jitsuryoku...) appear on the rankings. It seems they were released early by a few stores, though - Rakuten lists the release date as 21st.

Ever Princess titles also counted as released in w/c 18th January despite only coming out on 25th, although none of those made the rankings.

From this post I can tell you are familiar with an absolute maximum of one of the other series. Either that or you just want to make yourself look like a moron for the hell of it.

Edit: upon investigation, it would appear Ramkec is familiar with precisely zero of the nine series in question. Why am I not in the slightest bit surprised?

*2. 15,240 *15,240 Oda Nobuna no Yabou Vol.14
17. *5,989 **5,989 Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru Vol.9

Fab to see these two up there, Oda Nobuna especially, expecting Sakurako-san to get the bulk of it's sales in the next week or so. Hope the anime gave it at least a moderate boost.

The KonoSuba boost is rather large so early on, not surprising, the first couple episode were just fab, hugely enjoyable.

Thanks Mr Detective. It sure was hard to investigate me and my list with 18 reading titles, and almost all of them are manga.

Tell me exactly again why are you mad so we can skip this formal stuff.

"Usually ships within 2 to 4 weeks." for me, if it's in stock they will just say in stock with green text as usual.
Kindle version is always in stock of course.

Mushoku tensei wont get bigger until the author removes it from syosetu. That's what SAO & MAHOUKA did and now look how much they rake in.
Imagine a berserk anime by Yoshiaki kawajiri at Madhouse.

In MT's case, the LN are way too behind compared to the WN. I mean, we are already at the Redundancy chapters. If you mean by getting rid of the main story on syosetu and only making it available on the LN? Sure. But getting rid of his WN progress including his Redundancy chapters? Real fans would lose interest waiting 10 years for the LN to catch up. Not to mention the fact that the LNs are almost an exact word by word copy of the WNs

Sorry, I guess it was just "available to order". My bad. Still, as you can see above, there are definitely a lot of copies selling...

exactly, it's word by word copy. You can just find illustrations online & read the web version with it. I meant the former option, btw. Redundancy chapters are just fan pleasantries anyway.
