Damn...

Nice, ''Sword Art Online'' is evolving well,good to hear that

Jul 21, 2012 11:10 PM by Rosaryn

I didn't know until I saw the release on Manga Updates but the 5th volume of my favorite Light Novel came out on the 10th.

It is the highest rated Light Novel on Manga Updates (Yes, in case you're wondering it is higher than Sword Art Online, Spice & Wolf, Index - the original and the sequel, the Monogatari series, No.6 and so on and so forth), 13th if you include all titles (including Manga, Webcomics, Manhwas, Manhuas, OELs, Doujinshis and Light Novels).

I am so very disappointed that the 5th volume of "Utsuro no Hako to Zero no Maria" (The Empty Box and the Zeroth Maria) didn't even make it into the top 30 in its first week... Well it did go 2 years without a volume coming out, but I guess I can say goodbye to any chances of it getting an anime or even a manga adaptation.

I'll leave the summary here in the spoiler (as any good fanboy should):

Well, at least the fan-lation(?) is coming out fast enough. The story is quite complex so I guess I'll re-read the first 4 volumes again. Let the mindfuck begin.

If there was an English release I would buy it. ;_;

But hot darn 100k copies? Jesus. xDDDD

26, *21,854 *,364,904 Ookiku Furikabutte, Vol. 19

Oofuri still going strong!

And wow at SAO. I was seriously considering buying it before the anime started. Now I definitely will go buy it.

Jul 21, 2012 12:40 AM by madeintaiwan

SAO and Kuroko! <3

Jul 20, 2012 10:35 PM by Onigiri-san

SAO and its whole 10 volumes awesome!

Jul 20, 2012 10:55 AM by Ahmer

Oh SAO, not only are you #1 but you got all your volumes on top weekly rankings.

I'll have to give this a shot, for some reason it seemed annoying to me the first few chapters and I just put it on hold. Selling pretty well though

Snowical said:
*2, *74,814 *74,814 Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei Vol. 6 - Part 1


I've got my fingers crossed that this gets animated, a big fan of the LN.

On another note, SAO is on a roll.

Dammit Kamachi get your act together, you can't be losing to SAO!
Need to get back in action and dominate those damn sales bro

Jul 19, 2012 5:48 PM by Kenju

Glad to see SAO's getting the recognition it deserves. I can't wait for volume 10 to be translated.
Hopefully with these sales, an English version could be published. I would love to own hard copies

Jul 19, 2012 4:51 PM by Jugem-Jugem

even on MAL, SAO's score rose from 8.94 -> 9.05 and now its 5th

Jul 19, 2012 4:44 PM by edwd2

Nice to see Maid same on the list!

Jul 19, 2012 4:28 PM by minimiau

Bakuman strong. Hell yeah.

Jul 19, 2012 2:19 PM by Progeusz

Apparently, the SAO LN is a goldmine. This will probably show its effect on the anime BDs as well.
