Every time I see Assassination Classroom on that list, I want to scream 'ANIMATION ADAPTATION WHEN?!'

Looks like Blue Exorcist took the top spot this week though. Also spotted DAL on there. Season 2 coming soon.

Remember Date A Live had a LE as well - so those figures aren't the total ones.

You'll have to make do with this for the moment until we get the full cour series. It was pretty good actually.
It's only a matter of time so patience.

Since I'm talking about AssClass, what was the release date for this volume? This normally sells about 300-400k on its first week IIRC.

Nice to see SAOP and DAL there. BakaTest seems to be making its last spurt for its final volumes. And Kurou's Sexual HarassmentKenshin no Succeed even managed to get in. I should probably submit the main characters for this one. Maybe tomorrow.

Blue Exorcist got 1st place? Cool.

And for light novels, I'm surprised that Hidan no Aria got so high. Didn't the anime bomb? Where were all the novel fans?

Good to see Hidan No Aria Volume 16 wrecking. The anime might get a second season stated by a tweet by the author that stated "New project in production". For the people that only watched the anime, it completely butchered Hidan No Aria.

The anime got average sales. The anime butchered the novel with no mercy (JC Staff of course) and thats why the anime did as bad as it did

GOSICK Red isn't a bunko format so I don't know if it can appear in this list?

No B.A.D. 12 either in the LN list BTW. Well that story is a "bit" too gruesome and has a far too twisted morale to sell well, I suppose.
Hikaru ga chikyuu ni ita koro made it though.

It's kind of sad to see Aozora Yell so low on the list, and it's sad to see that almost no one read it. It deserves to sell more than Ookami shoujo to Kuro Ouji imo.

Yeah, it sold less than 11,423 so it didn't rank this week.

I have absolutely no idea why you think that it not being released in a bunko format has anything to do with it appearing on the list or not (well it does have an effect on how much it needed to sell to rank on Oricon's weekly charts, but that's obviously not what you meant).

That's actually somewhat what I wanted to say. IIRC bunko format and Tankoubon format aren't ranked together, meaning that if the cut off for tankoubon is far higher this may exclude GOSICK Red from the lists because of its format.
And you kind of confirmed what I though since it appears the only thing we know is that it "sold less than 11 243" even though we have bunko format as low as 5k on the list. Meaning that GOSICK Red may have actually sold more than some of the LN listed above.

As much as I like Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji, I have to agree on this. So sad that shoujo like L-DK and Ato nimo saki ni mo kimi dake sell more than Aozora Yell or Joou no Hana.

11k and not there....Oh well.

At least I'm a proud owner of that LN as I bought it during the first day on the first hour of sale \o/
