At least it's only on Light novel. If it gets to manga, then it's world domination.

LOL, true words spoken, see'ing as Manga sells alot, even Non-Otaku people read em (It's like, 10k manga sales kinda equals 1k anime sales, general idea though, there are exceptions), if SAO were to get a good manga adaption then we'd better prepare to kneel before it.

On a side note, i've never heard of or even expected half the mangas on there to sell, the world is bigger than i thought.

Just because something sells doesn't mean it's "mainstream", although i have to agree with SAO being one in this case lol.
Btw, is just me or is that a meme reference? just wondering.

Cool "Maoyuu Maou Yuusha - 'Kono Watashi no Mono Tonare, Yuusha yo' 'Kotowaru!'" on the list for 3 weeks running. I'm hoping Arms is seriously taking this versions popularity into consideration whilst making their adaptation.

That's because Kuroko no Basket has a light novel. It's called

The 3rd voulme or Replace III just came out. XD

I wouldn't say it's exactly popular as sales counts for Manga are very different in comparison to Anime.

But since Maou Yuusha is getting an anime anyways, it'd be a boost to the sales.

Good to see Ao Haru Ride. Kokoro Botan as well.
Shitsuji sama no Okinrii is underrated in the English fandom.
I know the sales for Date A Live is good, but 60k by 5th volume is more than I expected.

OP still under three million? Guess the hype went down since the war of the best... but being honest I'd say that One Piece Movie Z will push it again.

That's the 8th week (9th for volume 1) in a row that all volumes are in top 30...

Total sales (Aug 20-26) / Weekly sales
2,575,356 (112,924)

Total sales (Aug 27-Sep 2) / Weekly sales
2,693,776 (118,420)

Hm... will there be a boost in sales for the Sep 3-9 week, after the airing of Episode 10, to coincide with the sudden rise to the top of all the BD volumes on Amazon JP?

I also read somewhere that there are ~5.85 million units of the LN in circulation now. Is there a possibility that there have been some sales that were not reported to Oricon like what happens for some of the anime with their BD/DVD sales only accounting for ~1/3 of their actual sales? This discrepancy can also account for LN units that have not been sold yet, right?
