Alright, I'll try giving it a shot. Thanks for the recommendation.

^_ All of the titles quoted above, I bought them during June 9-15 so I'm participating here!
Without me those titles would have sold one less volume~

....Yes, only one less, I know x].

But wow; I'm participating in 10 volumes among the 23 light novels listed this week. I think that's the first time I ever reached such number.
Almost bought claymore 26, could have had one on the manga side as well, heh.

Still, nice to see those titles doing well. Horizon is slowly selling less it seems. Well, it has to be expected after so much pages I guess~
Bannou Kanteishi Q no Jikenbo still has the drama boost and No Game No Life the anime boost.


How's the Horizon series? I wanted to start them, but the sheer massiveness of the books seemed to much for me. Wanted to ask since our taste in light novels seems to match. Especially, Rokka no Yuusha.

Well, that would be opposite of rokka no yuusha I would say, in that the only problem I found on Rokka no Yuusha is the lack of descriptions. Horizon has info dump everywhere. Rather than not having enough description, you have explanations for everything.

Horizon's simply the best world building I ever saw in a book (LN and novel altogether). I read quite a good amount with a fantasy/ science fiction settings, but never saw such thing before. Not only that, but the setting is extremely original as well, so managing to make a logical world building in a such weird world is far more difficult than it would be on more "normal" settings. History, economy, religion, war strategies, ethnicities, and so on, every things are covered and very convincing.

Scenario by arc are really interesting as well, because it's really NOT predictable. You know where you start, but it's more often than not impossible to predict which direction it will take.

Lots of cool characters, with very tactical and epic battles (sure enough, you have a lot of info dump to pass. But when fighting start, you're in for 400-600 pages with a lot of epic/strategic battles everywhere, so it's fairly well balanced in the end).

I really like negotiations (both political and economical) in Horizon as well. They are convincing and you really feel that people negotiating are smart and know their job. Some of the most convincing negotiations I ever read are in there.

Humor sometimes require extended knowledge on the otaku culture to be understood. Not all, it mostly depends on which character do the joke. Even so, removing some difficult to understand jokes, the remaining ones are still fairly numerous and funny.

All in all, Horizon is gigantic. Not only by the size of its books, and not only by the sizes of the chest of some girl ( that point is just satoyasu's style~ ); but by the word created, the amount of characters involved, the amount of details, epicness (several ship bigger than 2km long, 120m long dragons, gigantic bushin, and so on), originality...

Definitely worth reading. Info dump can be a bit harsh to pass at first (especially if you're going to read it in japanese), but the result is worth it, because all this info dump is necessary to enjoy what comes next each time.

the anime has removed parts, a filler character (tina) cencored blood,gore and the cooking fest arc was ruined ( bad animation, cencored) and they changed the whole ending ( filler ending) of the arc

i recommend you to read the manga at the beginning of cooking fest ^^


the toriko manga is equal to hunter x hunter and one piece in my eyes :p

Somehow this doesn't sound right at all.

I'm always saying that Horizon will never get a 3rd series, but I sure would have liked it to happen. And not only a third, but next ones as well. While Horizon isn't a LN fit to be animated due to the sheer amount of info dump/explanations needed to understand what's happening properly, someone who has already read the novels can sit and just enjoy the animation without any trouble to understand what's going on.
So many awesome fights in the next arcs.

Jun 21, 2014 3:53 AM by Zefyris

Gimme Horizon 3 already. Yeah, yeah, I know it's not happening because of >reasons but I still *want* it to happen. At least I can buy the volume and support the series...

Jun 21, 2014 3:36 AM by Rachmaninow

OP never bored to read no matter how time much time flies.

The 65 million is if it keeps it's current pace but it will obviously jump in sales and don't give that "no it won't with no anime" BS.

SNK sells great, yes, BUT IT'S A SHORT SERIES and that will be it's downfall.

I see you have some good taste

but Yozora>>>>>Sena XD just saiyan


Yea, let's just end this argument for now. I'll be looking to see if toriko comes back into the top 30 this year.

No, NO! Sena >>>> Yozora. She's blonde how can you resist that? ;)

^I read Toriko i don't say it isn't good but lol 100 million? Even SnK which got the highest hype in last years barely made 38 millions.Chances for Toriko to even reach 50 no even 45 million are low.And we are the peak now,just sayin'.

SNK will end in 2 or 3 years because it's a short series (for popular shounen standards)

Bleach has over 82 million in sales ;)

Toriko is a little under 1/3 of the way done and it's peak will begin next chapter XD
Toriko will succeed in the long run and the anime should come back in a year or so, even the voice actors and the TV station feel it will come back.


Toriko started in 2008, it took toriko 6 years to sell 20 million volume copies, Toriko is at volume 30 and you said the mangaka has announce that it will end around volume 100 right? So going by the trend, toriko would make 70 million in sales, that's if toriko continues to sell at its normal pace. Which is not happening at the moment.

Now for attack on titan it started in 2009, it made 8 million in the first half, let's say attack on titan made 14 million in the entire year this year, attack on titan will end around 2017, so even if titan makes just 10 million sold copies for the the next 3 years, it would still have more overall sales than toriko. Attack on titan would make about 75 million. It could be higher but I predict the sales will drop after everyone has bought the older volumes.

The guys at Toriko Wkia translated the tweets send after the last ep. aired, okay it's not set in stone but close enough.

Interesting, I think most cast want the anime to continue. But it's actually likely since it was close to the manga and it was about time for DBZ Kai.
