Detective Conan still going strong. Aoyama is swimming in money.

Glad to see it still going strong, maybe we'll be able to see the ending before we die.

Rozen Maiden seems to have quite a good sale although this will be the last time i will see it on the chart as the series has ended....
40. *24,683 *,*24,683 Gokukoku no Brynhildr Vol.9

Brynhildr doesn't seem to have received much of a boost. I guess we'll see if it gets a second week or not. Volume 8 last month sold about the same though I think that was the first time it ranked so it seems to have held the pre-airing boost anyway but it isn't exactly selling like a top-10 manga. 24K isn't a lot really, barely ranking.

As for Rozen Maiden, may not be the last you see of it from the charts as the novel series continues.

18. *41,449 *,*41,449 Rozen Maiden Vol.10

31. *5,232 **5,232 Rozen Maiden: Rot-Schwarz

Rozen Maiden Zwillinge came out last year. Rot-Schwarz says "TBC" at the end. They are back stories, the first of "twins" Suiseiseki and Souseiseki, the second of "red and black" Shinku and Suigintou.

Tokyo Ghoul is selling quite well. which shows that the series must be really good to sell so much. i can see the anime series boost the series even more when it airs.

I can predict SAO dominating the LN sales when the second season airs and i can see Tokyo Ghouls dominating the Manga sales when the anime series airs.

Oregairu on top always makes me happy.

Glad to see Black Bullet on the list. I hope it gets more popular.

Manga that happened to be in the Light Novel ranking
Don't know why but I giggled.

I always thought of Akatsuki no Yona as a manhwa because of the korean names, so that surprised me.

It was an error Oricon made, and we weren't sure how to deal with it. Seems like they removed the entry and added another instead.

It's the 20th anniversary so Gosho is going all out this year.
That Conan thou :)

Apr 24, 2014 7:08 AM by Mr_Gutts

Magi's taking the number 1 spot next week, calling it. 500,000+ total copies.

Glad to see some other manga I like sell well.

Basically NGNL has almost doubled the sales of its earlier volumes in just one week, huh? Well, that's what a good adaptation could do for a decent to great manga/LN series.


No it hasn't. The total sales figures for volumes 1-4 are wrong.
Next week vol 6 sales will out then we will see how much boost it will get.

I only read a little part of the manga, but I think the direction of NGNL for this anime adaptation is really good. A lot of fast paced humor thrown with a good storytelling pace, along with plenty of well timed cool little touches. Probably my favorite direction for this season.

Apr 24, 2014 3:25 AM by zeroyuki92

Awesome to see Oregairu at number 1 for LN and of course all those SnK volumes.

Apr 24, 2014 2:39 AM by sim0n2170

I can see Tokyo Ghoul taking over the top spot after the anime finishes airing if Studio Pierrot don't butcher the adaptation. Seriously, take my words and start reading it people, I believe it will be an interesting read for you especially after chapter 64 happened, my expectations for it skyrocketed. Though there's only 54 chapters translated, the raws are already up to 124 chapters now.

Also good for Mahouka, NGNL and KagePro boost, I believe this is just the beginning so expect to see more of them for the rest of this season.

In Blu ray charts even when you can't see (they only give us top 100), oricon still takes numbers for up until top 200, after 200 is not tracked.


I know. And there's a limit to these sales as well, although of the top of my head I can't remember where it is. I just wondered why you were bringing up blu-rays when talking about sales of a light novel in the manga/light novel rankings thread.

Apr 24, 2014 12:07 AM by kuuderes_shadow

Happy for oregairu!

And kinda confused seeing kagerou days. The light novel sale is good but the final BD sale estimate is only 2.7K? I guess the show is overhyped.
