Still waiting for season 2 of Hataraku.


Me too....

As others, seeing Hataraku on top of LN ranking makes me want S2 even more.Come on White Fox! ><

I really hope "Handa-kun" sells more so it could have an anime someday. The manga is too hilarious!
I agree, though if i had to choose between S2 of Barakamon and Handa, i would go for Barakamon.It hasn't been so long since the anime finished, but i already miss it as hell :c

I am still waiting for Hataraku S2.

Finally more than one book I care about in the rankings, it's been a while~
Good to see that the fans of KyouHora are still mostly here at every new volume. We're already moving over 17,000 page of content if we count the SSs, and almost at 16k even without the SSs, yet it still sells far more than most light novels. Nice. Going to buy it with the 8-B and 8-C in June/july and read that arc as well, expecting a lot of this one since we're reaching the honnouji no Hen (Oda Nobunaga's assassination) 's recreation which is a major event promised from the start in the story.

Yes so happy that Saekano is selling so well :)

Feb 19, 2015 8:36 PM by G_Spark233

Why are people still buying Kimi Ni Todoke?

Feb 19, 2015 8:28 PM by scabab

You guys are busy talking about Tokyo Ghoul. I'm here happy that Arslan Senki is selling well.

I expected more from Naruto tbh. It sold nearly five times less than last week. Generally the decrese from the first week to the second is rarley more than three times so it seems like most people bought the volume in the first week than usual.


It was on sale for 5 days in the 1st week... how can you expect that much sales in the 2nd week? Here are the sales of previous volumes of Naruto with comparable amount of days on sale in their 1st weeks. I left out Vol.71 and 70 because they were released prior to their official release date, and Vol.69 was on sale for 3 days in its 1st week (which resulted in week 2 having 50% of the sales as week 1).

*1 -- *,874,120 *,874,120 **1 5 NARUTO-ナルト- 72
*2 *1 *,186,887 1,061,007 **2 - NARUTO-ナルト- 72

Week 2: 21.38% of 1st week sales

*1 -- *,653,624 *,653,624 **1 5 NARUTO-ナルト- 67
*3 *1 *,164,277 *,817,901 **2 - NARUTO-ナルト- 67

Week 2: 25.13% of 1st week sales

*1 -- *,679,096 *,679,096 **1 5 NARUTO-ナルト- 66
*1 *1 *,172,373 *,851,469 **2 - NARUTO-ナルト- 66

Week 2: 25.38% of 1st week sales

You are right that more did buy in the 1st week than the 2nd week, but it was simply 4% more than normal... In reality it is way further from the 33% or higher of 1st week sales in the 2nd week. Perhaps you are comparing to volumes which had 1st weeks of 4 days or less, which would make more sense?

Feb 19, 2015 2:55 PM by Ejc

One Piece is on the roll, still in the Top 20 after 8 consecutive weeks.

The last volume to sell this well was volume 70 or 67.

I expected more from Naruto tbh. It sold nearly five times less than last week. Generally the decrese from the first week to the second is rarley more than three times so it seems like most people bought the volume in the first week than usual. I expected it to reach 1.7 mil at the end of the year with that first week sale but I'll revise that to 1.5 mil... which is still greater than any other Naruto volume's yearly sale so all is good.

Feb 19, 2015 9:43 AM by Agafin

Naruto #72 reached 1 mil, not bad!

One Piece #76 in you I trust.

Amanchu! seems to have had quite a bump from what I last remember. I wonder if it is related to the Aria announcement? Either way I'm deffo happy to see more of Amanchu.

EDIT

Vol8 of Amanchu had sales of 25k for the first week. Volume 9 first week sales of 63k is a HUGE bump!


Doesn't seem much of a boost (if any), if you actually looked at how long Vol.9 and Vol.8 were on sale when their 1st week sales were known. Vol.9 was on sale for 6 days, Vol.8 on sale for 2 days, so that would explain why Vol.8 only sold ~26k in its 1st week.

Comparing to previous volumes on sale for a similar amount of time... Vol.3 was on sale for 6 days as well, selling 95k in its 1st week and the more recent Vol.5 was on sale for 5 days (1 day less than Vol.9), selling 76k in its 1st week.

But I understand, since MAL doesn't even bother putting in some vital information that enables proper comparisons between previous volumes, unlike on 2ch. You can see from here, that any volume which has been on sale for 2 days or less for Amanchu, end up selling less in the 1st week than the following week.


Ahh ... yes I see. Thanks for clarifying that. It is a pity that that extra information is not on MAL. I did notice that Vol8 had something like 60k sales by the end of the 2nd week as reported on MAL so I guess I should have twigged that something was up. Anyway .. at least it's pretty decent sales.
