I don't understand much of how things work, but does this mean a second season of the anime is more likely now?


Definitely. Not to mention around two weeks ago, volumes 1 and 2 ranked again which is something extraordinary. Most manga get a boost with their latest volume and that's about it.

BD and DVD sales are not looking that hot at the moment but if Kodansha wanted to, I'd say they can make a second season since they have definitely benefited from the anime.

(Now, for a little speculation. Skip if you're not interested)

So, volume 10(manga) had the Kamigakari arc and volume 11 will have the flower viewing arc so if they make a second season theydl probably use up chapters 12-23 for season 2. That would be perfect.

Oh in that case I should pick up the manga as soon as season 1 ends :3

It's nice to see Noragami near the top... I hope they keep it up

Feb 28, 2014 4:13 AM by xshujinko

I added Vinland Saga, L♥DK, Shitsuji-sama no Okiniiri, Q.E.D. Shomei Shuryo, Again!!, and AKB49: Renai Kinshi Jourei on my plan to read list :3

Highschool DxD topping the LN charts!!! I should finish the Highschool DxD season 2 today while I still have time and it's weekend.
Noragami is getting quite the attention now. I am just waiting for the Anime to finish airing before I start watching it.

ooooooo Noragami sales went up

Noragami and Hoozuki got great anime boosts!

Noragami volume 8 sales: 86,317 (11 days)
Noragami volume 9 sales: 60,123 (6 days) (failed to rank in it's second week, less than 27,878 copies)
Noragami volume 10 sales: 119,275(7 days) (second week yet to come)

If we take volume 8's sales, in seven days it sold 54,929 copies in seven days. It has already more than doubled it's sales.

JOHJ BE PRAISED.

I am glad for Nanatsu no Taizai's continued increase in sales, though. This could go well over 250k for the next volumes and I am sure an anime would boost the sales again. Then again, with these sales it is a given that an adaption announcement will happen this year. I personally hope for Madhouse and the HxH staff.

Some more sales for Vinland Saga would eb welcomed as well.

Will DxD reach 50k next week I wonder.

13 volumes now... I need to get my hands on machine-doll wa kizutsukanai...

...

... I need more money...
It's good! And really, novels aren't that expensive.


I know, but I like buying this stuff in bulk, and all my spare money is currently going on course exams (the course itself having eaten up my savings) and Non Non Biyori blurays. Both of which are, of course, unavoidable expenses.
13 volumes at once is expensive though if they're in a set you can at least save on shipping sometimes...

Non Non Biyori Blurays are indeed a necessary expense. Volume 3, episodes 5-6 are so amazingly good! Next manga volume with OVA should sell well.

I'm happy to see Nanatsu no taizai doing well.

The anime announcement for Terra Formars must have excited people. :O


Terra Formars has always sold very well. The anime will most likely push its already great sales even higher.

The anime announcement for Terra Formars must have excited people. :O

Feb 26, 2014 9:36 PM by malvarez1

Cool boost for Noragami and Hoozuki, and a little boost for Romantica Clock. Only volume 12 of SnK made it on the list now, that's cool to see.

Would be cool to have flat SOL anime.

Feb 26, 2014 8:01 PM by ToG25thBaam

Bought both of the O.B. volumes.

*1. 299,947 *,299,947 Terra Formars Vol.8

Nice! Still going strong. So far I'm enjoying the manga a lot. Can't wait for the anime :)

*2. 179,590 *,180,407 Nanatsu no Taizai Vol.7

Still selling very well. I expect a long running anime in the future.

*4. 118,795 *,119,275 Noragami Vol.10

I don't read the manga (I plan to though). But the anime is great and its nice to see the manga get a boost. Fingers crossed for a season 2 of the anime.

12. *76,014 *,*76,014 Vinland Saga Vol.14

I've never read Vinland Saga. But I see plenty of people hailing it as a masterpiece. So I thought it would sell better to be honest. I guess the tastes of the Japanese and the Western World remain different.

31. *28,698 *,*28,698 Birdmen Vol.2

Good. I've enjoyed the first few chapters of this.

32. *28,448 *,277,726 Shokugeki no Souma Vol.6

My favorite manga right now! I really hope its cracks 300,000!

39. *24,292 *,*24,292 Denpa Kyoushi Vol.10

I'm surprised this doesn't sell better. That's a shame. I like the manga.

49. *19,590 1,532,293 Shingeki no Kyojin Vol.12

Still hanging around huh? You just won't quit.

*1. 39,797 *39,797 Highschool DxD Vol.17

My favorite Light Novel! Nice to see up on top! Can't wait for the Baka Tsuki english translations for this volume.

Feb 26, 2014 6:41 PM by Lefty112

*4. 118,795 *,119,275 Noragami Vol.10

WOO. SO happy to see Noragami here. Anime so good and for sure best anime of the winter season. Hope it keeps selling well.

*2. 179,590 *,180,407 Nanatsu no Taizai Vol.7

Get anime already so those sells can triple. Glad to see it selling well though. Hope you can surpass Fairy Tail.
