Well, looks like Hidan no Aria will be falling out of the rankings again next week. Still, 3 weeks, that's pretty good, still hoping on that second season (hopefully with better direction).

Snk sales is not surprising, the anime popularity adds another 20k - 25k to the regular sale for all volumes every week

I'm happy that first week sale of Btooom vol 11 is even better than vol 10

AssClass, Kuroko and SnK still going strong. The first one even had vol3 creep in 50th place and the latter dominating the charts with all its volumes. So nic.

SAO managed to do a 5th week which is awesome. I suspect it will drop out now but it's still a good run. Let's hope the threshold for next time is a bit lower so we can still see it.

NT7's number are only for 3 days but there's a slight drop in it compared to the first week of the previous volume. Guess having the Queen and Mikoto in the cover is not enough to boost it.
Though in the long run that's not important as it's still selling massively. We'll have to check the next rankings to see how much will be added to it.

Good to see Saki still on the list.

It's strange that the ranking requirements are so low even with 10 SnK volumes on there.

Like in my previous post,

*1, 132,529 *, 473,936 Ansatsu Kyoushitsu Vol.4

This series deserves an anime adaptation. Otherwise, nice to see SNK doing what's best and that's kicking ass on the board. Toaru Majutsu no Index: New Testament vol.7 seems to be doing well. Hmm, I should probably get to start reading this soon.

Again we see a lot of HaMaou (Hataraku Maou-sama) and now the scattered stories about OreGairu selling well (from reports of individual bookstores or chains) are now proven right -- OreGairu indeed got a lot of boost from the anime too.
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.

Not really SnK was still selling extremely well even after "That" happened.

Still don't get why people get so hung up over it anyway.

Only three days worth of sales and 90k+ sales for Index NT7. Just goes to show how much popular characters on the cover can influence sales. Plus the volume is pretty good.
Hell, I even picked up a hard copy of the book yesterday.

Check the bolded numbers. It's already selling a lot. The first numbers are only its sales for this week as it's been out for a few weeks now. The most important thing is always the second figures, not the rankings or the first figures.

Well, if they got to the sixth novel (and I think they ended at the end of the third) that wish would be granted. But I agree, Reki must have more screen time...

17, *55,231 *,872,744 Shingeki no Kyojin Vol.9

Most impressive, as expected.

Light Novels and Anime/Manga related books
*1, 91,775 *91,775 Toaru Majutsu no Index: New Testament vol.7
*2, 30,228 *30,228 Kyoukaisenjou no Horizon VI vol.1

Being realistic it should only be a matter of time before Index season 3 sees the light of the day. It's also pleasant to see Horizon doing fairly well, considering the usual number of pages those novels have.
Hataraku Maou-sama and Oregairu's sales are satisfying for me, as well. Both are series I enjoy watching.

Currently airing shows do seem to be giving their respective source materials a nice sales boost. It's been a great season, so this is good news.
