*7. *71,575 *71,575 Boku no Hero Academia Vol.1

^ The next naruto. What a joke. -_-


This is the best Weekly Shounen Jump first volume sales in several years.
It even sold better than what Bleach did on its debut.

Glad to see Boku no Hero Academia off to a great start.

The new databook is garbage... :(

My source is Oricon Youtaiju. Oricon Youtaiju publishes a Top 50 Bunko, Top 50 Book, Top 20 Light Novel, Top 10 Light Novel Series, and Top 20 Literature lists every week. Contents of the Top 20 light novel list will most often show up in both the bunko and book lists. Some light novels also show up on the Top 20 Literature list.

I also have a list of links to past sales threads (with more data such as release dates, # Weeks charted, and also the Top 10 Light Novel Series lists) posted in our News Club: http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=737625#msg31846591). Bear in mind we haven't gone further back than December 2013, because it doesn't seem practical to go further back when the past data is already available if you know where to look.

As kuuderes_shadow said, it is a type of book format. We have light novels, where most are published in the bunko format... but we also have light novels which are published in the book format instead, such as the "Monogatari Series".

Then we have some published in bunko format such as "Biblia Koshodou no Jiken Techou", or book format such as "Manga de Wakaru Nanatsu no Shuukan", but are not actually light novels. However, Manga de Wakaru can now be justified to be included in lists I guess since it will have an anime adaptation now.

So Naruto strikes ^^

Nanatsu No Taizai selling like crazy, holly molly. That's awesome, I love anime, I think I should read the manga as well ^^

Nothing interesting in LN section, except Accel World still on top.

Bunko is the book format which most light novels are published in. Which is why it shows up in the names of so many light novel labels.

WOOT! I was worried that this didn't sell well when I didn't see this last week. Impressive sales too, from what I remember the first two books in the series didn't sell as much as this one during their first weeks out (then again the boost might also be due to the upcoming chara album)


Here is the data for the previous book... that one was on sale for one less day, but it is better to compare sales after 2 weeks (to make it more even). So clearly this new book has had a boost compared to the previous book, and it appeared back into the rankings as well at almost 94K sales.
Bunko
*7 24 **2 *14,530 *24,732 14/05/31 ***9 Kokuhaku Yokou Renshuu Yakimochi no Kotae (告白予行練習 ヤキモチの答え)
24 ** **1 *10,202 *10,202 14/05/31 ***2 Kokuhaku Yokou Renshuu Yakimochi no Kotae (告白予行練習 ヤキモチの答え)

Light Novels
19 ** *** **3,520 *93,713 14/05/31 *163 Kokuhaku Yokou Renshuu Yakimochi no Kotoe (告白予行練習 ヤキモチの答え)

The 1st book... Again Hatsukoi no Ehon is well ahead after 2 weeks compared to this book as well.

Good seeing Naruto on top and Nanatsu no Taizai owning the charts. Im really interested in reading that Boku no Hero I hear its going to be the next big shounen.

Nov 13, 2014 2:57 AM by Hikarusuke

Nanatsu is the big new thing, I'm watching the anime and I expect nothing but greatness.

For some bizarre reason MAL has never included that series on the weekly rankings. It's one of the only series targetted at a female audience that reliably shows up on the rankings as well...

Nov 12, 2014 11:37 PM by kuuderes_shadow

Nice. it's always good to see Naruto topping the list.

Shokugeki no Souma is also selling good, Nice.

Yes for Boku no Hero Academia. Pretty good for first volume
and Nanatsu no Taizai domination is still expected

I don't understand why Japan continues to reward A-1's utter mediocrity one way or another be it directly or indirectly but oh well I guess. Pretty much typical at this point.


Why is it related to A-1? A-1 is certainly animating it, but I don't see a problem if people gets interested after watching the anime. If you want to how people reward the adaptation, just see the anime sales number which is kinda mediocre so far.

I've never heard of that series yet people are calling it the next naruto already? O.o


Remember the name Boku no Hero Academia then, because apparently the first volume was sold out everywhere so the series is already much more popular than those sales numbers suggest. Nearly top the Jump rankings recently too (came out #2 behind One Piece). Actually just start reading it, because it's pretty good.
