Notjing interesting but... Seeing sukitte iinayo was a good anime but I think not enough to read the manga.

Probably because it didn't rank <_<

What Kadokawa cares most is the sales of the novels. This means Mondaiji should be deemed a big success, despite its dismal performance in projected BD/DVD sales so far. From what I read, the pace of the adaptation is not fast in the anime. The series has only 10 episodes and may just barely cover vol.2. This means a 2nd season can be likely, just like what happened with Koreha Zombie Desuka where modest sales of BD/DVD did not stop a production of a 2nd season.

DxD vol 14 is out? I hope it to be translated fast by Baka-Tsuki.

the life 0 and life 1 are already translated on Code-zero blog, check on Baka-tsuki for his blog link if you dont have it. Life 0 and 1 are somewhat okay so far, nothing special, just explanation of magician and pact with devils.
I somewhat surprised that the DXD volume 14 is already rank 3 when it was released on January 19.

Arghh. I need to start reading Otoyomegatari at last

Kotoursa-san #1 came out in 2010 and is currently #13 on amazon.co.jp's manga list and ships in 1-3 weeks. Kotoura-san #4 is at #22 and comes out February 22nd. Issue #3 is ranked #29 while issue #2 is completely sold out. Not sure if the old ones will rank but #4 just might...

Ansatsu Kyoushitsu is still there. Silver Spoon is 1st? I guess I should read it.

Jan 28, 2013 8:37 AM by emanime

Wow, Sliver Spoon completely wrapped everything else, it's not even funny ;) I think I should follow the herd and check it out

Jan 28, 2013 8:16 AM by ThangLong

Biblia Koshodou no Jiken Techou is not going to leave this chart anytime soon, i guess.

maybe you should read them then. :3 you're missing out on a lot of great manga.

Better yet, buy them and feel good that your buy is counted in the sales numbers!

Must be the effect from the live action TV adaption.


It was famous before the adaptation though

I really hope to see the anime one day

Index is still selling but it's still lower compared to its previous volume. The story was good, even though Touma pretty much fought the enemy half-dead and barely won. The power of plot armor is amazing. I vote Thor to be a new protagonist, screw Hamazura.
And lol rhinoceros beetle.

DxD's number is just for one day but if that's the case then it should have a higher number for the next week rankings. Can't wait for the translation and the second season.

Silver Spoon going strong in its first week. AssClass and HxH still alive. Good job.

And wow Mondaiji getting a boost in the LN. The anime did its work already even though it won't sell.

Jan 28, 2013 2:47 AM by belatkuro

Hunter x Hunter is doing so good it's scary

Jan 28, 2013 12:58 AM by FaZe_Flume

Mondaiji-tachi got nice boost in novel sales. God, that anime is really pretty good.
Otoyomegatari selling well, i'm glad.

Jan 28, 2013 12:40 AM by underoath777

Good job Silver Spoon.
