Glad to see SAO spinoff doing well. Still want to read first volume, didnt see any translations anywhere tho...


Not to be facetious but you do realize you can buy the Yen Press release? 3 volumes out (4th in april) & good translation quality. Give it a try


I know that, I was talking about Alternative version =)

Oh... Look at that the series is finally showing signs of getting anime boost.


The live action movie is coming out in a couple of days, so there's a lot of talk and promo for it all over mainstream media right now. That's probably helping.

Any news on Akatsuki no Yona getting boosts? D:


The anime already boosted Vol 16, released Dec 19th, from the usual ~70k to 108k, plus the previous volumes probably sold more as well.

Vol. 17 is released on Mar 20th, so we'll see next week if it gets better.

*2. 2,581 152,525 Kokuhaku Yokou Renshuu
*3. 2,400 *91,108 Ansatsu Kyoushitsu Ya-tan

Figures in red means that there are weeks missing from the data.

I can't find any past data on sales of this volume of Strobe Edge either - it was released on 28th December 2010

Is there a longer list, like a top 100?, i've been curious about it


For what? Manga or novels?

For manga, I believe Oricon counts the top 500, but we only have access to the top 50. Lower rankings are probably made available to firms in the industry, which is who this data is really produced for.

The novel ranking on this site is an amalgamation of several different rankings put out by oricon (with their rankings adjusted and irrelevant volumes excluded). The main one is the top 50 bunko, but there's also the top 50 "books" (a ranking that excludes bunko format and manga, amongst other things) which usually has a significantly lower threshold, as well as a "light novel ranking" which is also included. Not included is a separate light novel ranking posted on the oricon website which has really limited restrictions on what is included, and a light novel series ranking. Again, data is counted well below the cutoff points but this is not made publicly available.

There are a couple of other rankings for novels that are just the ranks with no sales figures which are publicly available and go down well below oricon's ranks (top 500 in the case of POS), but these are ranks only and often have a slightly different order to the ranks we see on Oricon, on account of having different sources for the data. Similar things probably exist for manga as well but I don't follow manga sales enough to know what they are.

The Mahoutsukai no Yome looks nice. Its art style somewhat reminds me of Natsume Yuujinchou.
