Damn, non-LE didn't make it.


It's my fault for not having bought it yet.
Being serious, though, remember that the thing that matters is the total sales figures, whether we see them or not. If anything splitting it would increase the total sales, not decrease it.

dont worry there was only afew Limited editions they dont call limited edtion for nothing.


Add onto that the Limited edition came with blu-ray and costs the equivalent of $50 or £30 instead of the normal $5-6 14k sales is pretty good.

All Kagerou Days LNs are on the charts with extremely high sales! Especially the 3rd volume! :D

I'm so proud of Jin! I really love his series~

Jun 11, 2013 9:27 PM by pika09

Shingeki no Kyojin rises like King. All of the volumes were included in the Top 20.

*2. *37,262 155,277 Koyomimonogatari
22. **6,549 *30,746 Campione Vol.14

Glad my week late orders of those two weren't too late to rank...

20. **7,229 **7,229 Love Live! School idol diary ~Takasaka Honoka~

Too bad I hadn't heard of this. Wonder if it's any good. Anyone give it a try?

28. **5,636 113,974 Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru. Vol.1

Loving the anime, not sure why I haven't ordered all of these yet... maybe I will... not that I don't have too many unread light novels on my shelf already, sigh...

I saw the limited edition and regular edition covers on baka-tsuki for vol.15 and i would honestly want to get the regular edition as well over the limited edition.
Just in case people don't know: The regular edition of HDxD v15 will not be out until Jun 20th.

This is the first and more will be coming yay!

What exactly are those books about?
This is actually a novel that is supposed to be a diary written by Honoka about things she does to become an idol and her activities as an idol. And it also has illustrations and character details information too. Eventually the same "idol diary" will come out for each of the members in Muse.

*2. 79,163 *,302,427 Inu x Boku SS Vol.9
24. 38,674 *,138,646 Zetsuen no Tempest Vol.9


Good to see these two up there. Zetsuen got a good boost in it's manga sales so the anime wasn't a total loss...I hope.


37. 23,098 *,*56,203 Hirunaka no Ryuusei Vol.6
16. 59,282 *,124,627 Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji Vol.6
30. 30,287 *,*61,346 Heroine Shikkaku Vol.10


What I would give for even one of these to get an anime. Come on, Shueisha, please? Ok, ok, I know, TnK, Sukitte and KamiHaji's disc sales were horrible but both Sukitte and TnK made it to the Top Selling Manga for the First Half of 2013. That's gotta mean something right? And even KamiHaji got a good boost in manga sales.
Please Shueisha? :(

Ookami Shoujo YAY!! Anime??? :P


What I want as well. It would make such a funny anime. But it's been so long since Shueisha animated one of their shoujo manga. =(

I'm so happy to see Suicide Island/Jisatsutou in the rankings!

And Shingeki no Kyojin continues to dominate.

Glad to see Deadman Wonderland and JoJo are also continuing to do well.

I really need to get around to reading Pandora Hearts...
