Damn, those DxD sales have definitely lowered over the last few years. Guess it makes sense that it's entering the final arc and Ishibumi wants to get to the sequel already. Loving those Konosuba sales though

Fab to see these three up there. Mahouka sales still incredible. Date A Live and DxD remaining steady in sales which is good to see. Looking forward to reading it at some point down the line.

Volume 21 only came out on the 19th so that's only 2 days sales. DxD sales are usually consistent and I'm expecting the same here.

KonoSuba's vol. 1 sales is stronger after the anime ended. Last week was round 5k-ish and this week is 8k-ish. Though the problem now is that vol.7 and vol. 8 of KonoSuba have dropped out from this list. Well I'm gonna give those guys time to read vol. 1-6 before buying more lol.

Also it's nice to see DAL vol. 14 sales quite goodly. The new spirit looked like a space bunny magician. Also the illustration of Kotori as the little match girl is so cute <3 and sad... (since the little match girl is a really sad story...)

Good sales? I find Imouto Sae Ireba sales a little disappointing........doesn't look that good at all.

Oh and great to see Oniisama doing well though I doubt it can hit the sales of Monogatari series.......

Imouto Sae is actually selling really good for an LN series that doesn't have an anime adaptation yet. Selling 14k in just 3 days is actually good and next week it may reach 30k like Vol 3 did in 2 weeks. Remember this series is written by the author of Haganai, a series that sold above 100k per volume, and the art is done by Kantoku. It's only a matter of time until an anime is announced.

**8,754部 *31,031部 15/11/18 **12日 妹さえいればいい。 3

Vol.3 was on sale for 12 days though after 2 weeks. Vol.4 is barely above Vol.2 after the same 3 days, although Vol.4 also has a Limited Edition with Drama CD bundled (which sold 5,408). With that Drama CD boost, that alone would probably be enough to tip Imouto Sae Vol.4 over 30k next week.

Oh. I bought the series because of the illustrations by Kantoku. Since I don't really know much about the average LN sales, looks like if this is considered good I shall take it as it is.

I DO hope this receive an anime adaption. I liked the Drama CD a lot. Fingers crossed :x
