With the anime coming up hopefully the sales will go a bit up.


It'll certainly be interesting to see how much of an impact the anime has on Sword Oratoria's sales - and indeed on the main series' sales. When was the last time a spin-off light novel of another light novel series got a TV anime adaptation all to itself? Has it ever even happened before?

Speaking of adaptation boosts, this season has been rather weak for them. But then with so few light novel adaptations out there, and those that there are being either series with low sales or sequels, it's not really much of a surprise.

Accel World gets a bigger second week proportionately than StB did.

Tensei Slime doesn't get a third week on the rankings so will have to wait for the monthly rankings to become the best selling volume of the series to date.

Next week's rankings will be... fun.

Hidan no Aria AA is a manga. Things are confused slightly by the fact that said manga also has a light novel version but really the situation there is akin to that of Railgun rather than Sword Oratoria.

I know right? This is why the novel doesn't seem like it needs an anime, even though I'm quite sad about that, lool..
