It switched publishers so is listed twice. Would be higher if added together.

It didn't switch publishers actually, it's still published by Media Factory. The reason why it's listed twice is supposedly related to Kadokawa merging 9 of its subsidiaries together, though why NGNL was the only one to have its sales split is everyone's guess...
The listed publisher changed. Whose mistake in two listings I do not know.

I heard that this one isn't well-received in Japan, so i'm kinda surprised to see this in the ranking.

I would really be interested in knowing why it was switched. MediaFactory is owned by Kadokawa so it was more an internal transfer than a switch, so I would love to know if there was a reason given. Would be an insight into how the publishers works.

I didn't love that Love live has a manga. Now I know.

Wish Kimi to Boku would get a third season :(

Jun 6, 2014 6:59 AM by _Spectacled_

I really like kimi to boku so this pleases me. Season 3 please! I want to see my boys again >w<

Jun 6, 2014 12:11 AM by Ryokun018

So, if a light novel doesn't show up in this ranking for its first week, is it bad ?


It's normal.

...NGNL still not bad. Happy to see that :D
All volumes selling over 10K a week is way better than not bad, it's a great anime boost.

Didn't want to say great and then get told "100k overall is good/average not great."
I'm still a newbie to the whole sales thing :p


Just like you, I'm not very familiar with the number to reach before being considered "decent sales"

So, if a light novel doesn't show up in this ranking for its first week, is it bad ?

BTW I've heard it's the last volume. Is this true?

Jun 5, 2014 7:39 AM by YumeNoMonogatari

Kimi To Boku S3, please.

Just keep selling, Magi and Terra Formars. Good times, good times, indeed.

NGNL is doing great! Will be even higher on the yearly list at this rate.

It switched publishers so is listed twice. Would be higher if added together.

Oh so that's why it's listed twice o.o
That means it's around 400k!!
I don't know how good that is but compared to the others it's definitely great!!

Anime season 2 please.
