hope DATE A LIVE can sells better than hataraku or yahari


The novel sales are better.


really ? but i only see hataraku and yahari vol 1- 4 there.

Date A Live isn't getting a boost in sales as big as Yahari or Hataraku so that's why none of its volumes are showing up in the rankings this week. But its last volume, 7, sold much more than Yahari or Hataraku's last volume (70k vs. 40k).


that's why i hope more people read it and start buying from volume 1
It look like people like Miku. I hope BT trenslate it faster.

This is my first time comment because the news often in Italian sites I frequent this ranking is never compiled, so it's new to me, being even a little unaccustomed to reading manga and LN, I always have little time, however, I find that is very interesting for statistical purposes and to get new ideas on what to read.
I notice that in the manga Shingeki while taxiing TAMnI dominates the first position in the LN, how nice!

Thanks for the news.

Really hate seeing SnK domination. Lol, it's not long until it gets to 'THAT' part where everything goes wrong and turn off a lot of people.


Not really SnK was still selling extremely well even after "That" happened.

Still don't get why people get so hung up over it anyway.
As if I didn''t know it sold well. >_>

Interesting to see LD-K doing so well. This needs an anime adaptation imo. Well, there's already a live movie but ya..

May 22, 2013 11:24 PM by Stark700

Oh my. Ansatsu Kyoushitsu in #1. What's in volume 4 again?

May 22, 2013 11:22 PM by emanime

Wow... SNK sold almost the entire volumes out to be in the ranking

Ansatsu kyosbitsu, dis the authoe tKe lessons in japanese or smething??

May 22, 2013 8:40 PM by GodlyKyon

I'm picking up Ane no Kekkon 5 soon. Koi to Gunkan 4 as well, which managed to slip in at 49/50, ha. Still, thanks to a slow week, Nishi Keiko got two spots!

Currently airing shows do seem to be giving their respective source materials a nice sales boost. It's been a great season, so this is good news.

*2, 30,228 *30,228 Kyoukaisenjou no Horizon VI vol.1

Being realistic it should only be a matter of time before Index season 3 sees the light of the day. It's also pleasant to see Horizon doing fairly well, considering the usual number of pages those novels have.
Hataraku Maou-sama and Oregairu's sales are satisfying for me, as well. Both are series I enjoy watching.
