For many manga sales are dropping in paper format but thoose in digital version are on the rise, so yeh in the end the amount probably stays the same cuz that there is more digital copies sold which we dont see here.

Ok who translated アラフォー by "around 40"? The meaning of that word in japanese isn't "around 40" but "in his forties and single" . (アラ is not the beginning of "around", but of "alone").


... And what a title btw. >_<

Lol, what a good new profile's pic. Well, now I can say with clear conscience that Dengeki is the most powerful publishing house. It is strange only that Mahouka does not have the same advertising company as SAO.
Level of my english is still too poor, so ask not particularly angry because of my terrible grammar.

I'm pretty sure both of them are under the same publishing company

I know about this, and therefore I am surprised that they have different hype outside of light novels.

Oh I never realized that Death March has been selling quite nicely even before the anime is released. I wonder if they will get any significant bump or not when they release the anime.

Dungeon Meshi continously doing well with its sales. Nice.

I'm hoping Gin no Saji returns from its hiatus soon.
