Quite interesting indeed... Boku no Hero Academia charted the 1st week, then missed the Top 50 threshold for the next 2 weeks, then had some sort of sales boost back into the Top 50 list. Week 2 had a low threshold of 14,613, and week 3 had a threshold of 20,427.

*7 ** *71,575 *71,575 **1 6 Boku no Hero Academia Vol.1 (僕のヒーローアカデミア 1)

limited doesn't necessarily mean "few in number" you know?

Limited; restricted in size, amount, or extent; few, small, or short. It is mainly used as an excuse to make people buy shit, but that doesn't change the meaning.


Yeah it's a marketing ploy, but they are still limited editions. Terra Formars had one last week and now it's not on the chart while the regular edition is charting a lot higher. Eva is having a similar situation with a LE that's about sold out.

Kamisama no Iuttori II finally pass 100k mark. so happy.

NNT sales this week increased compared to last week.

They are gonna break the 700K next week if the growth rate is the same.

Oregairu pls

Boku no Hero Academia is doing very well sales wise for the first volume, I personally don't like it much so far (4 chapters), but I am still gonna stay to see how it develops.

Happy to see Baby Steps on the list, a bit disappointed it didn't get into the top 30 for the yearly sales. Daiya no Ace, Haikyuu, and Yowapeda were there.

Dec 4, 2014 3:41 AM by ToG25thBaam

Naruto's last volume getting closer to one million. I have a feeling Fairy Tail's sales are dropping even though there is an anime. However, Nanatsu no Taizai is still selling strong.
That Boku no Hero Academia thing got reprints, huh? It'll likely get some promotion soon now that it's drawn attention to it.

Dec 4, 2014 2:56 AM by Tomislavr7

With 30326 sales over those two weeks it must have been pretty close to getting in the rankings.

As I mentioned in its first week, it was sold out everywhere in 1 week. So it probably just got its second run.

Did Terra Formars even have an anime boost at all? It seems like the sales are just slightly higher than what I remember from last year.


Before the anime started... Vol.10 went on sale on Aug 20th. 412,928 (102,978 + 310,464) after 2 weeks (12 days of sales) for Vol.10.

*3 -- *,220,102 *,220,102 **1 5 テラフォーマーズ 10 [Aug 18~24 week]
10 -- *,102,978 *,102,978 **1 5 テラフォーマーズ 10 OVA同梱版
*8 *3 *,*90,362 *,310,464 **2 - テラフォーマーズ 10 [Aug 25~31 week]

Looking at the total weekly sales (Aug 18~24 and Aug 25~31):
*3 368,699 323,080 Terra Formars (テラフォーマーズ) ← Vol.1~9 sold 45,619 total the week Vol.10 went on sale.
*4 161,979 *90,362 Terra Formars (テラフォーマーズ) ← Vol.1~9 + Vol.10 w/OVA sold 71,617 the following week, with threshold at 20,374. So Vol.1~9 could've sold in total 51,244 at the maximum if Vol.10 w/OVA sold at least 20,373.

After the anime started on Sep 27... Terra Formars reappeared in the Top 10 Weekly Manga Series (Sep 29~Nov 16). The ***,*** after the total weekly sales indicate that no volume actually charted in the weekly Top 50 Manga list.

*8 152,054 ***,*** Terra Formars (テラフォーマーズ) [Sep 29~Oct 5 week]
*9 134,205 ***,*** Terra Formars (テラフォーマーズ) [Oct 6~12 week]
10 134,059 ***,*** Terra Formars (テラフォーマーズ) [Oct 13~19 week]
*9 108,328 ***,*** Terra Formars (テラフォーマーズ) [Oct 20~26 week]
*8 100,810 ***,*** Terra Formars (テラフォーマーズ) [Oct 27~Nov 2 week]
10 *98,880 ***,*** Terra Formars (テラフォーマーズ) [Nov 3~9 week]
*9 *81,675 ***,*** Terra Formars (テラフォーマーズ) [Nov 10~16 week]

Vol.11 went on sale on Nov 19th. 436,655 (79,571 + 357,084) after 2 weeks (12 days of sales) for Vol.11.

*3 -- *,244,411 *,244,411 **1 5 テラフォーマーズ 11
10 -- *,*79,571 *,*79,571 **1 5 テラフォーマーズ 11 OVA同梱版
*7 *3 112,673 357,084 **2 - テラフォーマーズ 11

Looking at the total weekly sales (Nov 17~23 and Nov 24~30):
*1 416,883 323,982 Terra Formars (テラフォーマーズ) ← Vol.1~10 sold 92,901 total the week Vol.11 went on sale.
*4 235,855 112,673 Terra Formars (テラフォーマーズ) ← Vol.1~10 + Vol.11 w/OVA sold 123,182 this week, with threshold at 21,543. So Vol.1~10 could've sold in total 101,640 at the maximum if Vol.11 w/OVA sold at least 21,542.

Looking at all this data here, it is clear that the anime has provided a sustained boost to keep Terra Formars in the Top 10 Weekly Manga Series, ever since the anime began airing on Sep 27. Just looking at Vol.11 vs Vol.10, there is a slight boost in sales... but the best part is the sustained boost Terra Formars is experiencing due to the anime.

3-gatsu no lion looks very interesting will have to check it out.

Dec 4, 2014 1:29 AM by Hikarusuke

Lol @ NGE's manga selling so well. The amount of money that franchise has brought is insane.

I thought Kiseijuu has reprints but I have seen it in the rankings only once. Is the anime boost not sufficient to reach the threshold or am I missing something?

Did Terra Formars even have an anime boost at all? It seems like the sales are just slightly higher than what I remember from last year.

NNT anime boost is insane.

23. *35,648 137,449 Boku no Hero Academia Vol.1

Seems very promising for a first volume. The character designs are kinda weird tho. I hope it will get an anime in a few years.

Looks like those 1 year and 4 months also affected my memory as well. After looking at the last sales numbers, that's right, 7.3k sales. I probably confused with the sales number of another LN I follow~
But, wasn't the cut off previous week at 3700?


Rokka no Yuusha is "bunko" format. The cut-off last week for Bunko Top 50 list was 5,862: http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=1314423.

The 3,755 is actually rank 12 on the Book Literature Top 20 list from last week (cut-off for that list was 2,510), so it would have never ranked on that list (since it is bunko format). It's only chance to rank was the Top 50 Bunko list, as the Light Novel list had a threshold higher than the Bunko threshold.

It can get confusing trying to figure out what the actual thresholds are if you look at the MAL lists, and not how Oricon actually releases the data, which is a Top 50 Bunko list, Top 50 Books list, Top 20 Light Novel list (which could be bunko or book format), Top 20 Book Literature List, and Top 10 Light Novel Series.

Nanatsu no Taizai is doing good :D
I can't wait for the Anime to finish airing!!
