I dont see Sword Art Online in the light novels ranking.....-.- -.-

No volumes have been released recently.
Thanks for the reply,but why?did they took a break?

SAO volumes are released roughly every four months (not counting Progressive). The latest SAO volume was released in December, so the next volume will be released in April.
Thanks for the info ^^.

The amazing thing about Vividred Operation's manga is that it literally has a ass-shot on every single page.

That's not all it has...

What I'm saying is that the sell is not as strong as previous volume.
In response to a comment quoted "i don't see Highschool dxd in the LN rank --" fufufufuf" ? I can hardly guess you meant that until you said it so here.
Volume 13 sell better if I remember maybe because it include special OVA.

Which is shame. But I think vol 14 is weak since it's a transition to a new arc and if you compare it to vol 12 it was obviously diferent.
Why should it ranks?? I do not see any new volume of Highschool DxD LN being published last week.
I know it was published in January.
Then perhaps there is not much point in saying that it's a shame for not having Highschool DxD in this ranking which covers end of Feb to start of March? It does not matter if vol 14 is strong or weak, it can hardly be expect to be ranked over one month after its publication. At the end it is not such a blockbuster seller like SAO.

One Piece sales should improve next week, it's got to sell at least 1 million copies, if not I'll be really surprised

One Piece usually sells millions though. What happened?

Well that volume was supposed to be officially released on the 4th, i.e. the day after this week's rankings, so I guess its current sales only come from stores that broke the street date.

It's probably for the same reason that Ansatsu Kyoushitsu is also underperforming, they wil likely do better next week.

Oricon indicates that it was release on March 3rd. (Take a look at the source image). So, One Piece sold 400k in one day. I was surprise that it didn't hit millions at first too.


Nope. Both One Piece's and Assassination Classroom's official release date is March 4th. That's why both of their sales for that week's rankings are lower than usual.
