Is the novel of this really that good?

Since when the sales have anything to do with being good? But Danmachi is a pleasant read. Nothing more, but nothing less.

S2 when?

You're lagging behind. It's been announced quite some time already.


Sorry for this late reply..., but that is a side story. I already knew about that one >.<

I want a true season 2 to the main storyline!!!!! The sales are there... and hopefully this side story is enough to garner enough interest to make it happen.

ANIME WHEN, JAPAN?
DON'T YOU BASE ANIME ADAPTATIONS ON WHETHER OR NOT THEY'LL SELL? WELL YOU HAVE PERFECTLY GOOD POPULAR SERIES JUST WAITING TO GET ADAPTED BUT DON'T, THEN YOU GO AND ADAPT SHITTY LIGHT NOVEL HAREMS INSTEAD.
...
Sorry, had to get that out of my system.
I'm sure Horimiya will get an anime eventually (I hope) but I seriously doubt any of the other ones will. This whole time I thought it was another case of Japan having shit taste again but clearly these series are selling, so I really don't get it.


I am waiting patiently for the anime of Horimiya...

Jun 5, 2015 7:47 AM by SNaG21

Ao Haru Ride, huh.

Jun 4, 2015 10:16 PM by Tengai

Damn.....No Ore Monogatari boost visible :/
Guess the Anime isn't doing a good job promoting it (enjoyable as it is)

Actually, I'm surprised to see Last embryo this week. I thought it was released on the 1st of June, so it shouldn't be here? Seeing Kuuderes_Shadow saying it's two days of sale, was it released saturday 30th instead?


Kadokawa Sneaker Bunko's theoretical official release date is the 1st day of every month. Official as in that's the date stated on their website. It has no meaning beyond that though: unlike other publishers with official dates who will occasionally release a few days early in order to avoid certain dates, Kadokawa Sneaker Bunko (as well as Kabokawa Beans Bunko and Kadokawa Ruby Bunko which release on the same day) have to the best of my knowledge never actually released on the 1st (it's usually between 25th and 30th of the month before the official release date), and every retailer would have it in stock and selling several days earlier, with the volumes always be listed as being on sale at the earlier date by retailers.

Compare that to MF Bunko J, whose release date is the 25th of the month, and who actually released on the 25th this month (like usual), but whose releases accumulated sales in the previous week due to preorders being shipped a few days early (and probably a few rogue retailers selling early as well).

>Hidan NOT getting s2 with those sales

Anyway, people being disappointed about the sale should think a little before being disappointed... Like, look at next week sales when it'll get out, you're going to be surprised.

2015 Manga Sales thread has been updated with the data for week 28:
http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=1373137&show=0#msg39283107

Ao Haru Ride moved from 9th to 6th after this week's sales, above Terraformars.

Spreadsheet with calculations have been updated:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/10K_N1R6l8reAqL4mioBECSNIJ6iqDo2FcouN79dg0Vc/edit?pli=1#gid=1549866658

Weekly Manga Series from Oricon Youtaiju
*1 615,143 Ao Haru Ride (アオハライド)
*2 347,512 Kuroshitsuji (黒執事)
*3 240,562 Kingdom (キングダム)
*4 192,150 Horimiya (ホリミヤ)
*5 141,463 Terraformars (テラフォーマーズ)
*6 138,803 Ansatsu Kyoushitsu (暗殺教室)
*7 135,371 Hoozuki no Reitetsu (鬼灯の冷徹)
*8 106,505 Kekkai Sensen (血界戦線)
*9 *97,061 Nijiiro Days (虹色デイズ)
10 *95,842 Owari no Seraph (終わりのセラフ)


I'm baffled. Why are some of the manga here (specifically Kekkai Sensen) have higher sales than the one the OP posted, but not posted on there? Are they two different lists/charts?


There are many different lists released by Oricon Youtaiju, but MAL doesn't post this one... so someone has to do it. I could say the same with the light novel list there (which is actually 3 or 4 different lists from Oricon Youtaiju combined into one for the MAL list).

My quick explanation of why sales in the Manga Series list I posted are higher than what is in the OP, is that it covers the complete Top 500 manga volumes list every single week, while the usual manga list is only the Top 50 (more is available if you subscribe for the much more expensive Oricon Biz service). So obviously it will be >= to the total of all the volumes in the Top 50 there, since many of the Kekkai Sensen volumes are hanging between rank 51 and 500 for this week.

Hidan no Aria first? Wow, I am kind of happy.

Last Embryo is a bit low ... damn. I guess the fact that it's not titled Mondaiji does not help?
