Welp I'm just happy it looks like SAO will have season 2 and so on.
Although I am soooo curious as to how they're going to put together GGO arc and Mother's Rosario into 1 season since Alicization IS going to need a season of it's own i think...

Not necessarily, there is no guarantee an anime will get a second season even if it sold over 100k.

But it is a good incentive non the less. Also, as far as I understand the SAO Anime is only going to animate the first novels. So there's still a lot of material to cover for a new season. More SAO for me is more happiness, so I hope they do a sequel.

true, but considering the light novel sales (and probably the anime sales when the DVD/Blue-rays come out) + popularity...


Yeah, the light novel sales are pretty awesome, at this rate it might even surpass that Biblia something, as for the anime sales, well it's been ranking first for awhile, 2 days ago the estimations for volume 1 were 60k, today it's 86k. but then again, stalker isn't always accurate, though you can rest assured that SAO will be the top seller of this year.

Maybe he's wondering about why it sold so "little" this week or its ranking for this week (it's hard to rank high when there are many new manga releases for this week)... idk.


Oh, Well yeah there is that, i've also noticed some mangas, for example, a certain volume sells, say this week, then a month or two from now the very same volume sells about half the amount it sold on its first week, kinda complicated.

I know, but One Piece being in the 14th place can be confusing for some people, not everyone knows how these rankings work after-all.


Yeah, see'ing as it's one of the leading Shounens, 14th place doesn't seem very convincing, but yeah, these rankings are confusing sometimes lol, or rather, all the time if you ask me.

what happened one piece o.O???
Where's the problem? It sold totally around 3 Million copies, and it's been there for a month now iirc, these numbers/rankings are for last week's sales only.


3 million copies? i thought it was around 13? unless you made a typo.

Or you mean a single volume? i'm not sure though, correct me if i'm wrong.
This volume to be more precise, V67, that guy was wondering why it's so low, from what I understood.


I don't think 3 million copies for a single volume is by any means "low", not even quarter of that lol.
