Why is Danmachi selling so well? Is the novel really that good? The anime didn't give me a good impression.

Considering the world building it is good.
I liked the characters and the way they're adventuring the floor while having their own development.

The anime is rather short so it's hard to make a good impression and most of the commoners eye would be into Hestia instead the actual plot.

The Spin off which is Sword Oratoria is decent, it's basically like Railgun spin off of Index series.

Sword Oratoria is unironically better than it's original, in my opinion.

Uh, that's the other way around, danmachi vol 14 = 91k in 14 days, Danmachi SO vol 11 : 32k in 10 days
If anything, SO undersells compared to its parent series, danmachi fans are totally sleeping on it.
