Last Week’s Ranking

Sora No Otoshimono and Highschool DxD still selling well (hell yeah). Actually, I was worried about the DxD light novel not being in the rankings for a while.

I wanna check out Switch Girl.

This is the last Ro-Kyu-Bu volume right?

Mar 7, 2014 4:16 PM by NeoAnkara

Will be interesting to see Strike the Blood 10 next week along with Golden Time 8 and Sakurasou 10.5. Exciting week for Dengeki Bunko!

Edit: Saturday release for all three so not sure how well they'll rank next week, could have bigger second weeks.

Edit2: Amazon bunko ranking right now, top 5 all Dengeki Bunko releasing tomorrow:

1. Strike the Blood 10
2. Golden Time 8
3. Rou Kyuu Bu!! 14
4. Sakurasou no Petto na Kanojo 10.5
5. Heavy Object 7

Sadly not much of an anime bump there. Nor for Machine Doll... I think NouCome got nearly those sales so while its discs have tanked it may have received the best anime bump of the novels. We'll have to track Golden Time #8 next week.


Strike the Blood got by far the best anime boost to LN sales out of autumn's adaptations...

... which would doubtless have been much bigger still were it not for the light novels having spent almost the whole time since the anime started out of stock just about everywhere...

Wow.. Norogami has still a long way to go. I was expecting it to see higher in the ranking because the anime is doing a good job. Oh well.


Don't look at the ranking. Look at the number of copies Noragami has sold. It has more than doubled it's sales figures thanks to the anime.

I added Ore Monogatari!!, Hyakushou Kizoku, Nijiiro Days, Joou no Hana, Yamikin Ushijima-kun, Kedamono Kareshi, Big Order, Shinmai Maou no Testament, and Manga de Wakaru Shinryou Naika on my plan to read list, other Manga on that Manga list are already on my plan to read list :3

Papa no Iukoto wo Kikinasai! and Ben-To season 2 please!!!!!

Removed the spoiler tag between Manga Rank 31 - 50, as it caused some confusion in the rankings.
Also added a link to the last week's rankings.


Much better layout now thanks.

I know right, i heard that there is some crazy stuff going on in novels all the time.Wish they would give us 3rd season already.

21. *34,216 *,153,491 Noragami Vol.10

Only thing I care about atm. Too bad it isn't doing as well as I had hoped for :\

Mar 6, 2014 10:58 AM by Botato

39. *22,906 *,*34,703 Big Order Vol.5
It's good but it takes too long, once a month is too slow.

My kind of series, I will enjoy this.
43. *21,749 *,*21,749 Shinkon Gentei - Joshikousei Dakedo, Kekkon Shimasu

If they adapt campione properly it would be amazing but NO.

*2. 24,743 *24,743 Campione! Vol.16

Anyone have any idea when the next volume of Mahouka will be released. It's been quite long afterall...

Most likely once the anime starts airing, then we can watch how much of a boost it will get from the anime ^^
Thanks! :)
