Cool, the other stuff from the franchise charts decently after the main series release. I wish SnK added a bit more at the end of the year, but beggars can't be choosers. I'll have the 1 218 870 copies for now.

SnK barely reaching 1 million. Nice sales.

"I could study OR I could read Isuna Hasekura's new LN!"
More writers should do this to improve otaku's grades and move Japan forward, what better way to teach people other than sneaking those teachings into cartoons?

Impressive to see Kokuhaku Yokou Renshuu with a long and steady sales tail.
Wonder if it's because of the Drama CDs, and through word of mouth?

I know right, I've been monitoring the series on this list ever since the third book came out and I'm really surprised it keeps selling. It probably is because of the seiyuu-covered album and Honeyworks' general popularity...

I actually expected this to get an anime before Mikagura, but I think it's only a matter of time...

Snk has good sales!

Oh wow Ao Haru Ride, you go! Probably because of the latest developments in the manga ^^

Keep it up snk. Even with the amount of negative things people have said about the series. It seems Japan still enjoys this series a lot. ;)

In a way, it's kinda depressing to see SAO Alternative selling so much better than Kino's latest volume. Well, at least it's a great volume (currently halfway through it) so I shouldn't complain too much.

Wasn't Washio Sumi wa Yuusha de Aru going on sale this week? Where is it? :c

It won't be released until the 19th, so it's obviously not in the list this week.

Ah, thought it went up already, thanks.
