The tokubetsu henshuuhan is a tankobon release so doesn't qualify for the bunko rankings. The bunsho ranking has a higher threshold and neither version makes it on there (the hibike! euphonium volume that is 231st on the bunko ranking is 498th on the bunsho ranking, which should give you an idea of the threshold for the top 500).

Campione takes so long between volumes now that I always forget it is coming out. Forgot to order this one. Also keep wondering how much longer it will go on. Really enjoyed the anime, silly as it is, and the novels are pretty good too.

Hmm Rokujouma didn't make to the list. Why I'm saying this is because on another forum someone say that on some source that vol 24 is already available on 29th. Guess it's going to be on the next week list.
Kickstarter for Rokujouma is fully funded. Good work everyone. Lets wait for the result of our hard work together.

Yes, it was out on the Saturday so had 2 days of sales. Threshold it needed to hit to rank was 5051. Last volume sold 6451 in 3.

The last time it came out on a Saturday with no LE was with vol 16 back in June 2014. That time, incidentally, it sold 4235 in those 2 days, missing the 5.9k threshold, and then barely scraped into the rankings the following week, in which it sold 4882.

Next volume coming out on December is said to be the last volume. Source, on the Campione box. The long gap between 18 and 19 was probably to write the ending.

Nice, going for an even 20 volumes eh? Thanks for the info! I'll have to pick those up. Shame it never got a second season. Even a final OVA would be fun.

Has the main male and female (forgot names) relationship grew a lot Since the anime or is it leaning more towards a harem ending?

Haven't read 19 yet and been a year and a half since I read 18 but it was still a harem last time I checked.

aaah right, why didn't I thought about that. Thanks for the answer, so it's really the old one in that ranking, we have no info on the other.

Peoples buying the old one are missing out, tbh.

Hopefully dude, hopefully. I got nothing against Kimi no Na Wa, but I'm tired of it being first place for so long.

Good to see Shousetsu Kimi no Na wa at the top again. I'm probably the only one that wants to see it there for as long as it can. Hopefully it can stay on for another week or 2.

If it does I'm getting another copy of it for friends.

Doesn't look too well....if it manages to stay #1 again once more, it'll be nice.

I guess it's pretty awesome to stand in the #1 spot for 10 weeks already. Seeing the sale numbers though it means it'll drop out of ranking fast the moment is starts to drop.

I guess I'll buy one more copy of Shousetsu and ANOTHER SIDE: EARTHBOUND for collection.

Kimi no Na wa. will likely stay ahead for the rest of the week now. But it's worth mentioning that Tuesday was the "official" release date of KonoSuba, so it could have outsold Kimi no Na wa. by quite a substantial margin.

This week's figures will be interesting to see either way, though I've changed my earlier prediction of KonoSuba coming out on top to one of Kimi no Na wa. beating it slightly (and quite considerably if you include both versions).

The next week, though? Not happening unless Kimi no Na wa. suddenly increases again - which would be quite a turnaround at this point.

I hope your estimation is true. I'd like it to stay at LEAST one more week. Shall await for news then :|

http://bunkoranoberanking.blog.fc2.com/

For days before the most recent one you use the month links on the right. Bear in mind that each day is under the month it is posted in, not the month that the date corresponds to, but they're always posted in order.

Also as per usual remember that this is the POS rank which is not the same data as that which Oricon uses.

Hmm....Thanks for the links.

What's the margin of error as compared to what Oricon uses? Is the standard deviation high? Don't wanna be hyped up about some series only to find out it wasn't THAT good when Oricon standings comes out.

It's not exactly easy to say. There are certain things that tend to get bigger sales on Oricon than POS, most significantly things that get released early in some places but not others, and some things that seem to be the other way around. Generally, though, something doing well on the POS rankings throughout the week will do well on the Oricon rankings as well.

Here's a comparison between the weekly bunko rankings for the week covered in this thread on Oricon and POS for the top 30 on Oricon (Oricon rank on the left, POS on the right):


Of course, when you're dealing with daily rankings you have to remember that some days will generally be more significant than others, as well as bear in mind when volumes come out for new stuff. Conveniently the POS rankings show the release date (actual, not official) of each volume on the right of the line.

Campione takes so long between volumes now that I always forget it is coming out. Forgot to order this one. Also keep wondering how much longer it will go on. Really enjoyed the anime, silly as it is, and the novels are pretty good too.
Next volume coming out on December is said to be the last volume. Source, on the Campione box. The long gap between 18 and 19 was probably to write the ending.
Sorry to necropost but I finally got my copy of Campione! v20 and it seems it isn't the final one after all! V21 will be The Final Battle instead. I assume that's the last one but you never know...
