Blade Dance let's get passed SAO before Summer 2014!


Their sales may have been similar this week, but SAO is on its 3rd week in this week of sales, whereas Blade Dance is on its first.
Yeah it kinda hard to outdo. I hope improvement on the sales after anime airing.

Nice to see Minamoto-kun Monogatari in the rankings.

I hope we're still gonna get a translation of IS Volume 9. Gotta see what this "rom-com" episode is all about lol

May 2, 2014 7:06 PM by Banshee-IV

Seems like Tokyo Ravens is actually okay, should probably get going on the second half of the anime.

Spotted Flower looks interesting.
Didn't know Hibi Chouchou sold this well. I don't usually mind works that are slow-paced, but this one felt too slow for me.

Can't wait for NT 10 to come out and blow everything outta the water :D


On the contrary, i'm kinda pessimistic about it because a couple of factors i can't mention here lol.


Back on topic, NGNL has made a fair amount of sales imo. I hope the sales are raising further. And it's nice to see Magi topped the manga sales ranking.

Infinite Stratos 9 sold 45% less than volume 8 did in the same number of days. Sure, volume 8 had a LE as well, but still... Even the RE alone sold about 20% more than this volume did in the same number of days.

Volume 8 itself was already by far the lowest selling IS volume.
Maybe they are tired for this.

NGNL is performing worse than I imagine... maybe it'll get better later on.


The last volume sold 24617 in 10 days. This one has sold 36257 in 4. Just what were you expecting?


I was thinking the same thing. For a light novel, ~ 55.000 copies sold per volume on average is very good.


I hope NGNL sales like SAO and TAMNI or at least at the same level with Yahari.

I'll pick up Honey and Dame na Watashi ni Koi Shite Kudasai.
