On the other hand, EIGHT out of the top 20 in Tsutaya's list is Hataruku Maou-sama. Since the LN has only 8 volumes out so far, this means the whole series of HaMaou is in the bestseller list !!
I sure hope you are right, than they can adapt the entire thing to anime.
Midway in the series and we have just finished volume 1, which means the whole season will probably conclude at the end of volume 2. At this pace we can easily have four seasons of it and still not reaching the end of the novel (since the novel will go on after volume 8). That would be amazing.

I think it depends on when Snowical gets the sales list from Oricon. Back then LN sales were released with the manga sales. I'm not sure if this has changed... but 2ch also gets the list every Thursday. I'm guessing Snowical gets it on Mondays as indicated by the list title on 2ch for example...

@Snowical, why are you waiting so long with posting manga rankings? LN sales are released later and you want to have them in one post?

Usually I wait but this time...

Mother of God.
ALL volumes above 56k. All volumes in top23. It's FOURTH week of anime's boost. This boost is by far the biggest one. Has anything like that ever happened before?

Shingeki no Kyojin is on its way to claim #2 spot, losing only to One Piece.

Oofuri in 3rd place ;u;

now if only they'd get started on that 3rd season

May 7, 2013 11:45 PM by freshfrenchtoast

Glad Snk is selling HOT hehe

The manga deserve it :D

May 7, 2013 1:23 PM by evanlai

SnK going strong!

May 7, 2013 11:24 AM by Sourire

A toast for Takehiko Inoue and "Vagabond" taking first pace! Great job, but it's such a fantastic manga, it doesn't surprise me one bit. =)

Yay for Hataraku and Shingeki. NO YAHARI? WAII :[
According to the LN sales ranking by Tsutaya, a huge national book and CD retail/rental store, last week 5 out of its bestselling 20 LN titles last week were OreGairu (official shortname for Yahari) so OreGairu is doing not bad.

On the other hand, EIGHT out of the top 20 in Tsutaya's list is Hataruku Maou-sama. Since the LN has only 8 volumes out so far, this means the whole series of HaMaou is in the bestseller list !!

May 7, 2013 12:16 AM by symbv

Yahari only ranked for one week - probably because of being split over 2 different versions (with/without the drama CD). But either way it probably wouldn't be on this week as it came out on the 19th March.

I need tocatch up with HnA. Still haven't read volume 8. Waiting for DxD vol 15.

Volume 15 is made of some short stories released in the Dragon Magazine or whatever.
Well the last chapter usualy fit directly to the canon whereas the other chapter set usualy after some volume. Still most of it was enteraining.

Ao Haru Ride got second place, my baby <3

May 6, 2013 6:33 PM by letfelicityfly

Shingeki no Kyojin getting the boost it deserves.

Boku wa tomodachi the manga simply getting the sales because its a haganai extension...

I can't bring myself to read Silver Spoon :( I know I should, but the main character looks so much like Ed >.<
He looks more like Fuery with blonde hair

So anyone know what these are about? Since they say "New Edition" is it just a re-release or did they release it again with the new artists images? Or a rewrite (doubt it).

I think it's a re-release with the new artist's character designs. I'm not entirely sure, but I don't think it's a rewrite.
