Accel World on the top chart? Damn, is a big secret being revealed or something?

The series always sells well. Once people have bought 12 volumes, it doesn't take some big reveal to have them go out and get the new one when it comes out.

And here we go again, Biblia Koshodou no Jiken Techou Vol.1 still continue its adventure.
Well, the live-action TV drama adaptation is running so expect booster effect to continue for a while...

>Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru nowa Machigatteiru daroka
Another long named title. I like the cover. Wonder what it's about.
And how do you shorten it? Taking a page of how Haganai and Oregairu is shortened, it should be... Niwaka?? OTL Not funny I know :P


Some fantasy romance light novel that started as a web novel (like SAO or Maoyuu). which is why the second volume is already out even though the first was released last month.

2ch seems to just call it Dungeon so that is likely the proper abbreviation.

Glad to see these two.

Glad that Accel World is doing this well. Hopefully this will help push the 2nd season of the anime to a faster airing.

Yakuindomo's series of OVAs might as well have been its second season now with how many it has. Ep5 was good.
I guess what they reckon now is that the sales of the OVA-bundled manga means that the lower-cost lower-risk (make one episode at a time instead of making 12 or more for one cour) sales model is better. The first season ended up with quite a bit of not-so-popular anime original material. Might as well just do enough anime for one episode with material all from the manga.
