Wow I thought Sword Art Online was the one with the most sales for light novels, guess I was wrong. Biblia Koshodou no Jiken Techou is selling like crazy.

Madan no Ou to Vadanis actually got a second week this time? That series has a long track record of getting somewhat decent first weeks and then disappearing instantly.

Index: NT looking somewhat weaker than previous volumes

And Biblia shoots up from 100th to 40th on my all time list. Still a long way down on volume 4 (the next lowest) in 8th, though.

17. 29,305 *,696,570 Gin no Saji Vol.10

Next week Magi will probably reach 550k while Sinbad may even hit the big 3.

Any big manga releases stated for next week? That way I might be able to roughly predict the top 50 cut-off.

Yes it is.

I need to start reading Magi. The first season of the anime was alright but I bet the manga is better.

Yep. The first season screwed things over a lot, but the second season is better at being faithful.

True, but I'd still recommend reading the manga from the start. It's a whole different experience than watching the anime and makes falling in love with the series so much easier.

Yeah definitely. I'd say that the manga is a lot better than the anime as a whole and that you should take the time to read it.

I'm very happy for Switch Girl!! It's a great manga, I hope the translators were quicker though... But I can't really complain.

Also I didn't know Giant Killing was so popular? I should start reading it. And also Natsume Yuujinchou, I really like the anime. ^^

Seraph of the end 10k sales on 1st week! Yay. Time for an anime adaption even if its on volume 3.

Tokyo Ghoul 200k as well. Maybe the anime announcement helped?

I want an anime for this, seriously.
Only vol 1 of the LN is translated for now. There's also a manga version. I remember when I first saw Shiori I absolutely adored her :D

Also glad to see Koe no Katachi's still going strong.

I added Giant Killing Manga/Anime, Hachimitsu ni Hatsukoi, Pin to Kona, Fujiyama-san wa Shishunki and Dimension W on my plan to read list :3

I added Biblia Koshodou no Jiken Techou Manga version on my plan to read too, it looks really good and interesting. I really like Shinokawa, Shioriko's character design, she looks really beautiful.

And I'll ask once more: is there any convenient way to check the sales per volume of some manga or LN without searching for every weekly ranking on ANN or somewhere else and summarizing the ones for desired title? I'm more than sure that somebody made them somewhere at least for popular titles or for 2000+ titles.

For light novels, the animetics blog has all MAL's data for each year (2009-2013) collected onto individual posts here.

I have data for all LN volumes that have sold 100k for the data we have available (the earliest of which is Nov 2008) on the second part of the initial post here: http://forums.lndb.info/showthread.php?tid=54. This includes some series/sales not reported by MAL, and is ranked by sales total. There is also a list of 50k+ sales in 2013 at the top of page 2, and a list of 50k+ sales for 2014 at the top of that post.

I don't know if there's an equivalent for manga.
