I added Haikyuu!! on my plan to read because it looks fun :3 Oh and does it have romance???

Atm no. It's really focused on character and team growth (and comedy).


I suppose is something like Kuroko no Basuke more or less right?

may check the manga if it's being published in France or Italy

I thought it would last a bit longer with some volumes with like 30k sales though, it seems the hype is slowly but visibly going down not really surprising with all the sales it had 'til now but still...it's faster than I thought it would be
I think it's just about right. The boost lasted throughout whole Spring and Summer when anime aired but now that it's no longer the case, sales start to fall and unless there's some announcement or SnK-related event, they won't go up.
However it's fascinating how volume 11 manages to stay in the list despite having serious stock issues. Next week it might fall out of ranking or sell 50k, no way to predict that.

new list already out, SnK has a significant drop but all his volumes still on the chart

I thought it would last a bit longer with some volumes with like 30k sales though, it seems the hype is slowly but visibly going down not really surprising with all the sales it had 'til now but still...it's faster than I thought it would be

on the other hand KnB still on top this week
man I missed the title topping everything else lol xD

Glad to see Juuni Kokki new version of the old book is still popular.

Shingeki is still selling a lot!

Do wonder how long Shingeki can keep up the all-volume 20-40k weeks now that the series is over. Impressive that it's still going at all.


Remember that SnK finished on the weekend before the week listed here. And I would guess that some TV stations probably aired it later than that date? Next week's listings will be the teller as to how much the sales are holding up, particularly for the earlier volumes (later ones may maintain some onward momentum of people buying as they go for a few weeks).

^^ I had hoped that Pan Tachibana's new title on Overlap would rank. Came out the same day as the last volume of Dakara Boku Ha, H Ga Dekinai but... no such luck. They were pleased with my twitpic of the two volumes side by side but I guess not that many fans made the leap from one series and publisher to the other which is too bad as the new one seems quite good. I hope it sold well enough for it to continue!

Is this the first OVERLAP Bunko title to rank weekly aside from Infinite Stratos ?
Actually this LN is not published by Overlap but HJ Bunko (HJ = Hobby Japan). As far as I know, Overlap Bunko, a relatively new publisher, has not yet had any title ranked in the Oricon weekly bunko chart besides Infinite Stratos.

I find it weird that NT8 only sold this much. It was definitely one of the better volumes.


In addition to what belatkuro said, books just don't work like that. Unlike anime where for the most part people have already watched what they are buying, and thus a particularly good part of the series can (although rarely does) lead to a notable sales increase, most people buy a book before reading it, and as such have no way of knowing in advance whether the volume is a good one or not. Critical acclaim of individual volumes has pretty much no impact on people who have already started reading a series with a continuous storyline, as well.

If anything, the sales of volume 8 will be dependent on the quality of volume 7, not volume 8. And volume 9 on volume 8 etc. After all, a high quality volume will lead to people wanting more, whereas a low quality volume will dampen their desire for the next one, however good said following volume may happen to be.
