*7. *16,301 *16,301 Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai kara Kuru Sou desu yo? Vol.9

This should be volume 10 here, not 9, since the 9th was the volume which got out on october.
the new volume "そして、兎は煉獄へ" which was just released is the 10th.


The one in October was a collection of short stories, though, and not an official part of the series. It's standard practice in series that have numbered volumes to not include such volumes in the numbering, or to give them x.5 style volume numbers. Except this time there aren't any numbers in the title to make things clear.

And as you know it's also standard practice to number them with the rest. like you said, just like baccano for example, there isn't any number in mondaiji series. However, the last volume wasn't the only one with short stories (volume 8 was half main story and half short stories; so they clearly ARE putting them together with the main volumes ) so ImO the point of excluding them is kinda moot this time.

Nice to see Kimi no Todoke volume 21 selling well...

It seems that Kagerou Days took over this list xD

Shuuen no Shiori Shuumatsu comes from nowhere to get a 21161 second week.


Not really from nowhere, the cumulative sales are comparable to the previous volume's sales. If you look at all the other MF Bunko J releases like Migakura, Asterisk, Absolute Duo, Mahou Sensou or OniAi you will see that they all have higher sales than what they sold last week. That's because MF Bunko J light novels are officially released on the 25th but Oricon always has sales data for the few days before, so if a week ends just before the 25th (like last week) the novels will have weaker sales for the first week and stronger sales for the second week.


Sure, but other than Mikagura, all the others had sales slightly above (as in less than 50% higher) last week's sales. Shuuen no Shiori Shuumatsu's was more than 150% higher. They all have the same release date.

It was this that I was commenting on (and the connected fact that I didn't even notice it was on last weeks rankings until this week's came out), rather than the actual physical sales number compared with previous volumes, which is indeed about what one would expect.

Shoujo going strong. Really great to see Hirunaka no Ryuusei up there; each volume seems to go up in numbers the more times goes on, nice.

I'm happy for Kimi ni Todoke, and I hope Hirunaka no Ryuusei reaches 100K :p

Apr 2, 2014 6:59 PM by mistress_kisara

Oh boy, I'm so happy that Kagerou Days V got the first place. I just read few parts of it, and I was drowned in feels.

With a lot of series ending these past few years people are trying new stuff and it's showing in the rankings.

*2. *72,493 *76,573 Coffee-ten Talleran Jikenbo Vol.3
