How big of an anime boost is that for Ookami Shoujo?


Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji:
Volume 9: 169,702(17 days)
Volume 10: 106,378 (4 days) 166,877 (11 days) 197,506(18 days)
Volume 11: 140,241 (6 days) 191,282 (13 days)

Volume 9 was released before the anime. Volume 10 was released just a bit before the anime began. As you can see, volume 11 has already had a small boost so far. We'll have to see how it performs next week as well.

Gosick Blue ranking 2 weeks in a row, color me surprised. I guess the LN is doing better than what I thought after all. it's far from a best seller, but that's quite decent considering the change of format and the fact that it's a sequel.

Looks like the new LN for Gosick is finally out, So what does this mean that the sequel series is going to have one new LN every december? considering Gosick Red came out a year ago at around December as well. I don't want to wait a whole year for every new LN :(

GOSICK RED was released on Victorique's birthday, December 25th, so that's technically a 11 months gap rather than a year. It's fairly long, but not that rare of a gap in between two books. BTW, are you even reading them? if not, why are you complaining about the release speed? Asking this because you don't seem to read LN at all in your profile...

If you add the limited edition's sales to that of the normal edition, then 3-Gatsu no lion has sold 600k copies. Dayum, it's popular.

Dec 11, 2014 11:38 AM by Agafin

Glad to see Isekai Maou to Shoukan Shoujo no Dorei Majutsu in the list and high school dxd is doing great for it Vol.19

Seriously, 3-gatsu no Lion needs an anime adaptation. And seeing Claymore on that list, I miss the manga already...

Btw, the special editions 3-gatsu no Lion's 10th volume recently debuted a music video that's somewhat related:


I know it looks amazing I seen the manga before I never read it though that will be changing soon for me. Awesome vid by Bump Of Chicken and I heard they made that because the creator of Gatsu No Lion is a BOC fan and BOC is a fan of manga so that's why they made it.

Nisekoi doing great cant wait for the second season even though the bigger harem

Dec 11, 2014 2:04 AM by pokeguy123

I know right.The more i see it in rankings and news/pv's the more i want anime done by some good studio.Hopefully our wishes will come true soon.

Now, I probably shouldn't delay watching HnC any longer.
Yes! you should go watch it now.I actually seen it only recently as well, and my first tought after last episode was ''Why the hell did i not watch this sooner?''

I think I'll die waiting for the new chapter.

Dec 10, 2014 11:58 PM by Trequartista

wow. nanatsu no taizai dominates most of the spots.

Lol I don't see one piece in the list


Oh boy, here we go again.

For your information, the most recent volume of ONE PIECE (which is Vol.75), was out on September 4th. That was ~14 weeks ago, and it stopped charting on the weekly list ~7 weeks after its release. Where were you 7 weeks ago, lol?

I'm not even a fan of ONE PIECE, but I sorta get that you don't like it. For fans of ONE PIECE, Vol.76 will be out on Dec 27.

Well it's been out for 3 weeks already. Everything else on the list has been out for 1 or 2 weeks, except for "Kokuhaku Yokou Renshuu Hatsukoi no Ehon", and "OreGairu." OreGairu. is definitely a much more popular series than D×D, and Kokuhaku has had quite a long tail...

*6. 111,678 111,678 Claymore Vol.27

>100k :D
Well done, Claymore <3 .. well done.
