LN data on 2ch: http://toro.2ch.net/test/read.cgi/magazin/1356429328/739-740

33,082 for the Hyouka manga volume with the OAD, not bad with only two days of sales reported, and the RE not coming out until later in the month.


Thanks! I really need to read or even join 2ch and see if they notice me as a gaikokujin imposter...

Any idea where January 7 - 13 manga and light novel sales went? ANN had the manga sales figures up as usual earlier in the week but I'm wondering how the light novels did too.

Hunter x Hunter still owning Naruto, now that's what I call good news!
Looks like it's gonna be in second place in this year Annual Manga rankings alongside KNB.


And of course One Piece first :D... Anyway yeah it's good to see it's still having people's attention although there have been no new chapters for 2 years

Nope. Kuroko should be happy if it's anywhere above #8 for 2013 ranking (unless anime starts this year or something). HxH might be top5 but top3 seems out of the question.
One Piece will obviously take the first place while #2-3 should belong to Shingeki no Kyojin and Magi.

To LOVE-Ru Darkness over 360k!!!
(over 73k for volume bundled with OVA)
Praise the God who bestowed us with this perfect creation!
Looking forward to 2013 yearly list.

What a close fight between Naruto and Hunter x Hunter! Both should cross 1M next week.

Ansatsu Kyoushitsu is really scary, 350k v2 in second week + 500k first vol... What's the last series with such a strong start?

Saint Young Men doing extremely well makes me very happy, same with great Nichibros and already 150k for WataMote.

Magi lurks in shadows of deep 40-100 for now but we should prepare ourselves for Ao/Kuroko-level outbreak in yearly rankings of 2013.

It seems like there was some Biblia promotion going on around New Year.

Natsume Yuujinnchou did really well, good for Midorikawa-sensei.
