Good to see it is still doing quite well. And Nanoha Force and Nanoha Vivid are still doing fine in their 2nd week.

44, *19,577 *,*19,577 Vividred Operation Vol.1

I guess it should be deemed a mild success?
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

Glad to see PapaKiki, A-Channel and especially Kore wa Zombie doing somewhat well. I'd seriously take another human's life over a 3rd Kore wa Zombie season.

Also, what's Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai Universe? Some kind of anthology?

Yes, but the stories are done by other authors, set in the universe of Hagani of course.

Well that volume was supposed to be officially released on the 4th, i.e. the day after this week's rankings, so I guess its current sales only come from stores that broke the street date.

It's probably for the same reason that Ansatsu Kyoushitsu is also underperforming, they wil likely do better next week.


Amazon ships preorders a day or two before the official release date so I often have them halfway around the world on the actual date.

What a surprise! I enjoyed a lot the anime but I don't have any idea how good the manga is.

28, **6,515 *,*29,345 Chrome Shelled Regios Vol.23

Not more on top 5 but it is still selling well.

I'm avoiding Strikers due to no lolis and how I've heard that it derails a lot from being a magical girl show, and just in quality in general.

Watch the movie though man.

Oricon indicates that it was release on March 3rd. (Take a look at the source image). So, One Piece sold 400k in one day. I was surprise that it didn't hit millions at first too.

Nope. Both One Piece's and Assassination Classroom's official release date is March 4th. That's why both of their sales for that week's rankings are lower than usual.

Which is shame. But I think vol 14 is weak since it's a transition to a new arc and if you compare it to vol 12 it was obviously diferent.

Why should it ranks?? I do not see any new volume of Highschool DxD LN being published last week.

Then perhaps there is not much point in saying that it's a shame for not having Highschool DxD in this ranking which covers end of Feb to start of March? It does not matter if vol 14 is strong or weak, it can hardly be expect to be ranked over one month after its publication. At the end it is not such a blockbuster seller like SAO.

What I'm saying is that the sell is not as strong as previous volume.

Volume 13 sell better if I remember maybe because it include special OVA.

No volumes have been released recently.
Thanks for the reply,but why?did they took a break?

SAO volumes are released roughly every four months (not counting Progressive). The latest SAO volume was released in December, so the next volume will be released in April.
Thanks for the info ^^.
