I wouldn't be surprised if Tensei shitara Slime Datta Ken gets anime next year at this point.

Oh I forgot Osomatsu-san has a novel series. Might check that out.

This is the current standings for the 2016 Oricon Yearly Top 30 Overall Sales Ranking, as of the November monthly rankings + the first week of December (2015/12/14~2016/12/04). There is only 1 week left before the ranking period ends (Dec 11th), and then we will know the full 2016 ranking around Dec 25 or so, alongside the BD/DVD and CD Yearly Rankings.

Note: This includes sales from Anime BD/DVD, Music BD/DVD/CD, Light Novels/Books, and Manga. This doesn't include other parts of a franchise such as mobile game sales, Box Office revenue, merchandise sales, etc. Series most affected by this are the large franchises, such as Kimi no Na wa., ONE PIECE, Gundam, Love Live!, etc.

Note2: Love Live! includes Sunshine's sales, while Idolmaster includes Cinderella Girls, Million Live, other spin-offs, and Side-M.

Note3: There is a two week overlap between the 2016 Half-Yearly data and the June monthly rankings data, which means that series that made a lot of money in June is most likely to be affected the most.

Here is the spreadsheet if anyone wants to see the earnings on a per month basis:

This was the ranking for the 2016 Half-Yearly:

Damn that Slime LN is selling a lot, even the manga was selling a lot.

23. *4,472 *,*28,747 High School DxD DX Vol.3

Still selling well after a couple weeks, not as high as the last 2 volumes (should have done another OVA) but still great for a spin-off / side story series.
