Nice to see the Moshidora novel at 1#.Also very glad to see the Gintama novel on there too.Usually novels based on manga never do so well.

Is the Moshidora novel really even that good to warrant that much sales? I also heard the anime adaptation was pretty crap so I'm assuming that the novel has some groundbreaking themes and elements and shit.
