I feel this is a really slow week. The light novels are selling under 51k.


The good thing is, this means we got to see Sakurasou rank again!

32, *6,769 *,*49,420 Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo Vol.9

March 30th has Mondaiji, Kokoro Connect, et al.

I thought Kono Naka ni hitori imouto ga iru! 10 should have been on this list but I don't see it. Amazon says it was released March 22nd but my copy says March 31st but I already have it. It shipped on the 28th so I'm not sure if it actually came out before the 24th or not. Guess I'll have to look for it next week...

Im surprise that DAL reached 50k.
Slow week for Onii-chan or?Just hope that it will reach 30k+ for the 2nd week like usual.
The way I see Hentai Ouji is that quite some fans are not aware of the release of volume6.
Good to see Sakurasou reaching 50k(definitely by next week or next next week)!

Yep that one as stated. Always makes me a little happy to see the sports genre expand beyond soccer and baseball to success.

First week sales of Date A Live vol.6 - 28k
First week sales of Date A Live vol.7 - 50k

Anime booster effect !!!
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.

These are the sales numbers before dropping of the chart.It seems like vol 18 and 19 did not do very well.With vol 20 it seems it's making a slight comeback.

yep, anime boost! Date A Live episode 1 wasn't the best but it was ok.
What about OreGairu or HenNeko? I haven't watched them yet but I'm just curious.

First week sales of HenNeko vol.5 - 29k
First week sales of HenNeko vol.6 - 14k

Hmm..... Well HenNeko vol.6 is published on 22nd, and the data here covers only up to 24th... Perhaps it is best to check the total sales after 2nd week (vol.5 reached 42.5k) for a better picture.

On the other hand,

First week sales of OreGairu vol.4 - 22k (limited edtion + standard edition)
First week sales of OreGairu vol.5 - 30k

That's good to see because Date A Live is one show that I am really looking forward to this season.

I read a bit of the manga and from what I remember it was funny. However, Date A Live (anime + manga + light novel) does not have comedy in its tags. The light novel recommendation for Date A Live says "like High School DxD but lighter" and I, after reading some of the manga, would agree with that description.

Of course, High School DxD is tagged as a comedy. It is a very funny show and I agree with that decision. However, if Date A Live is lighter than High School DxD, then it probably should tagged as a comedy.

Rounding off my point, as to not get too off-topic, is Date A Live tagged the way it is because the source material is marketed a certain way or is there another issue at play here?

As far as I know (but I could be wrong), any member of MAL could create an entry in MAL database and they are constantly reviewed by the DB Mods. But details like tags can easily escape attention because mods are not going to know every single LN/manga/anime out there to tell which tags should go there. If you think some tags should be changed/added, you are advised to post to the Manga DB modification thread here or the Anime DB modification thread here.

How do people still avoid reading Ahiru no Sora ?? Come on , its been ranked among the top highest on the manga charts for like months. Yet no one on MAL talks about it smh (even though i just picked it up like 4 weeks ago lol)
Is it because its basketball?
It needs to be animated , but then again it could be ruined since its 400+ chapters
it would have to be a long running series

Popular manga on this site and probably in the west as a whole tend to be ones that:
a) have an anime adaptation
and/or
b) have an english language release

Ahiru no sora has neither.

On top of that, sport and game related series often have an additional disadvantage in that people will rarely start reading them if they aren't interested in the game/sport covered by the series. I probably wouldn't pick up anything basketball related as I have no interest in the sport whatsoever.
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.

Real life responsibilities are awful, it's less avoidance and more "Oh right I've got bills now".


Lots of things are underrated though, not like this would be the first thing to fly under the radar.

^ The editing of bbcode and the inclusion of singles/album details takes A LOT of time. I took the data right when they were posted but it took me 80 minutes to finish everything to make it ready to post...


Yes, I understand. And you include 4 charts so I really do appreciate your work. I am just a dirty cut and paster.

And you're right, this is the manga thread. Sorry for the mess. I should really be reading books rather than posting but I get excited on Tuesday mornings...
