I honestly think that the battle shounen and Isekai genre are far more enjoyable to watch. Imagine that we had so many LotGH-tier shows, then it would become so how hard to binge watch the shows. Every episode would be super heavy and if you stop watching the show in between, it will become very hard to go back to it.

On the other hand, shounen shows are so easy to on the eyes and brain, you can super easily binge watch them and you can come back to them even after a long hiatus. They feel like home. But yeah, 99% of them are super lame too.

No Re:Zero volume among the top 17? I'm pretty sure several of the new volumes sold more than 50k. It couldn't have more than 900k in total sales without that anyway, since the average should be more than 60k.

One Piece's sales are just absurd, close to the double of 2nd place...
Very happy for TG:re! Since the only one above it that it could maybe beat is Boku no Hero Academia, but BNH had a recent anime, fifth place is very good.
The drop from Haikyuu to Nanatsu is too big...

Kimi ni Todoke handed the baton to CardCaptor Sakura to shoujo manga. The only manga I follow in the top 50 list are 3-gatsu, Gin no Saji and Wataku no Koi.

Magi has ended its serialization. The chance for another season is almost gone.

Anyways, other than Violet Evergarden (which is head and shoulder above the rest according to the tracker), CardCaptor Sakura Clear Card-hen, Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san, Nanatsu no Taizai: Imashime no Fukkatsu and Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! Take On Me are the most anticipated anime for winter 2018.

I am wondering if both CardCaptor Sakura and Nanatsu no Taizai will have significant boost when they get their anime aired.

Gintama sold around 270~300K per volume over the calendar year iirc. How would it make it in the top 10 list? If the list is expanded, it will be around Top 20 or Top 25, probably.

Digital stuff actually decline the Manga sales.
While it's not fully a bad thing Manga/anime/LN is the one who need to evolve to follow the modern concept.

I do agree reading Manga/LN are still far better on book but when you had a smartphone or pc that pretty much do the same with same adjustment why go just go with "physical"?

I am quite sure Manga physical sales decline somewhere later in 2020.
Similar how Digital store or rent taking over BD/DVD for game/music/movie industry.

Physical should still exist but yeah having it alone doesn't help and i think reading it online literally same as pirating, no?
I mean we read something that copyrighted and we didn't even had it.
Or was it the same as playing/watching other people playing games,renting/borrowing it?

Why are they only listing the ranking by series only up to Top 10? It's been Top 30 in previous years.

The manga ranking by volume goes up to Top 50 this time instead of Top 100. The LN ranking by volume goes up to Top 50 for the bunko category instead of Top 100.

Physical sales are on a decline while digital sales are rising so these numbers don't mean much if you want to know if a series is successful or not.

Manga Sales by Series Ranks 11-50

Much more interesting results than the top 10 which anyone could have guess at tbh.Cause it shows up and rising manga that'll probably get anime in the near future.

>25 Tensei shitara Slime Datta Ken 1,304,520

>34 Komi-san wa, Community-shou desu 1,135,494
>37 Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai 1,091,710
Anime soon!

Could see Kaguya,Promised Neverland and/or Kimetsu no Yaiba's anime being announced in 10 days at Jump festa.

Those numbers are estimates by a guy in Mangahelpers. The real numbers are a bit different.

I have been meaning to read this manga. I think I really need to start reading it. On that subject, I want to see Kaguya-sama animated the most than any other ongoing manga right now (since I know shoujo/josei manga adaptations hardly ever happen, the ones that I adore I mean).

Hehe yeah but it was 2014 and can be considered old stuff compared to SnK that got an anime this year, and a new one scheduled for next year as well.

And still the distance between no.2 and no.3 was pretty close.

And yeah sucks that Kingdom is not licensed, but seeing how far its gone, I doubt it ever will be.

True that, can't help when anime people are missing out on what is considered to be one of the best arcs in manga medium, really wish for a proper S3 if it happens someday.

Mhmm, if Kingdom would get proper promotion with a nice S3 or better a good entire anime remake with around 100 episodes I believe it could rival One Piece in those yearly rankings.

Also that Live action commercial was hype af.

Remember that 58k threshold is for Shinsho novels which Re:Zero is not.

Re:Zero had 14th and 19th place on the light novel top 20 (one of the few things that has been leaked) with volumes 11 and 12 respectively, both of which were over 100k sales.

I will like to add that kingdom got a huge promotion, because it was featured on a popular Japanese television show and that boost the sales tremendously, I think that talk show happen in 2016 or 2015 and that is when Kingdom sales spike up and everyone was buying all the old volumes to catch up.

If Kingdom even got a good adaptation, I doubt it will make much difference to the sales now. The series per volume sales jump from 200-300k to 800k per volume,

Kingdom backlog boost is drying up, but it can have a chance of beating snk next year, since all three volumes for snk will have a limited edition ova's, and those sell between 200k to 300k, and sadly oricon don't count the limited edition sales with the regular edition sales.

In 2014 snk actually sold more than one piece, but it lost because oricon don't count the limited edition volumes with the regular edition, and those were selling 300k+ that was the year snk lost to one piece by a 100k.

Though to be fair, one piece did only release 3 volumes that year because of oda sickness, but I felt that was the perfect time for snk to take advantage of that, sadly it did not happen.

snk has no chance of ever beating one piece again, 2014 was the best opportunity for that.

Next year is probably the last year for AoT, Cause its planned to end late next year...It does have a chance, But One Piece is One Piece compared to manga sales, So it'll be quite difficult for it to exceed even in its last year in. Lets see...

Also Index isn't even in the top 10?


(assuming you're talking about the top 10 series)

Why would it be? Its back volume sales (as we can see from when new volumes come out) are basically nonexistant. This means it needs to rely entirely on its sales of new volumes. With 2 volumes out in the covered period (although a third only a few weeks before which thus would have contributed something) I very much doubt Index would be anywhere near the top 10. Indeed I'd be extremely surprised if it sold half as much as the requirement to get on that list.

I wish the same, But I did hear a lot of news on AoT ending in late 2018, I wish they weren't true, But some said Isayama stated this in a interview with Besastsu Shounen. I don't know about this that much personally tho, So not sure.

I wish the same, But I did hear a lot of news on AoT ending in late 2018, I wish they weren't true, But some said Isayama stated this in a interview with Besastsu Shounen. I don't know about this that much personally tho, So not sure.


There is a recent interview where Isayama said that snk may take a bit longer than he initially thought, and he apolgize to fans about that, he also mention that he does not plan to extend the series any further than what he has planned right now.

Below is the number of times that a series was rank 1 or in the top 5 of the weekly light novel series rankings during the year. For comparison with the overall figures. Ordering within ties is largely down to when a series first ranked in that position.

There were a total of 53 weeks in the year - this means KonoSuba (and that alone) was in the top 5 for more than half of the year.

Weeks at #1:
Sword Art Online - 8
Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu - 6
Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei - 4
Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! - 4
Accel World - 4
Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou Shugi no Kyoushitsu e - 3
Monogatari Series - 3
Overlord - 2
Knight's & Magic - 2
Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka - 2
Rokudenashi Majutsu Koushi to Akashic Records - 2
Youjo Senki - 2
Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken - 2
Shousetsu Kimi no Na wa. - 2
Kokuhaku Yokou Renshuu - 1
Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata - 1
Kino no Tabi - 1
Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru - 1
Eromanga-sensei - 1
Shinyaku Toaru Majutsu no Index - 1

Weeks in Top 5:
Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! - 27
Re:Zero - 25
Sword Art Online - 22
Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou Shugi no Kyoushitsu e - 19
Eromanga-Sensei - 12
Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei - 12
Youjo Senki - 12
Shousetsu Kimi no Na wa. - 11
Rokudenashi Majutsu Koushi to Akashic Records - 9
Gamers! - 7
Imouto Sae Ireba Ii. - 6
Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata - 6
Strike The Blood - 5
Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka - 4
Kino no Tabi - 4
Monogatari series - 4
Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka Gaiden - 4
No Game No Life - 4*
Accel World - 4
Overlord - 3
Isekai Shokudou - 3
Knight's & Magic - 3

Owari no Seraph: Ichinose Guren, 16-sai no Hametsu - 2


Interesting to note that Accel World was in the top 5 on 4 occasions, and was rank 1 every single one of them.

I may do a top 10/top 20 list as well if I feel like it.

*Note: on release week, No Game No Life: Practical War Game was included in No Game No Life's figure. The following week it was given its own entry (No Game No Life Tanpenshuu)
Bestselling light novel volumes of the year/all time* (and more in the same club including weekly series ranks etc). <-- No longer being updated. Sorry.
*that there is data for

There is no such thing as shit taste. Only idiots who think everyone should have the same taste as they do.

At the rate that One Piece goes, it could fall below 10 million next year.
That needs a new amazing arc, probably Whole Cake has allowed it not to go down so much because in 2015 sold 14 million and in 2016, 12 million.

In 2014 snk actually sold more than one piece, but it lost because oricon don't count the limited edition volumes with the regular edition, and those were selling 300k+ that was the year snk lost to one piece by a 100k.

Though to be fair, one piece did only release 3 volumes that year because of oda sickness, but I felt that was the perfect time for snk to take advantage of that, sadly it did not happen.

snk has no chance of ever beating one piece again, 2014 was the best opportunity for that.


Wrong! What doesn't count together is the "by volume" list, the overall list counts everything of the series, regular and special edition.

Basically in 2014 the best volume of Attack on Titan sold 2,276,439 copies, but by just looking at the list you would think it sold 1,895,305 copies.
Also note that the One Piece volume that sold less that year sold 2,698,071 copies, still 421,632 copies more that the best of Attack on Titan.

If you want to talk about something that isn't counted, take the One Piece Logs. A "Magazine" with 30 chapters of One Piece, and that isn't counted here because it isn't a volume.

*2. **,960,418 Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!

If only KonoSuba's volume 13 was released last month or two, then it could've sold another 80-100k and reached the 1m sales threshold.

*3. **,925,671 Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu

Also I didn't expect Re:Zero to sell these much. I thought their books only sold around 60-70k? How did it almost rivaled KonoSuba that sold over 90-100k per volume? Is it because Re:Zero published more volumes this year? Or did they actually sold more than 60-70k and I forgot? I can't remember.

And Index is no longer in the top anymore? No wonder the anime got greenlighted after so long.

That is good to hear, glad I was wrong because that always bother me. I don't know why you are comparing the volume sales I already know one piece sells a ton more than snk.
