Oh wow, Overlap finally got another series that can hit 10k sales? In four days. And with its first volume at that. Gaikotsu Kishi-sama, Tadaima Isekai e Odekakechuu doing fairly well, too. So one for Overlap Bunko and one for Overlap novels.


I'm not really surprised. It's even more pandering than series such as SAO or Mahouka lol

Sales are really high as i expected.

Yahari SNAFU domination, yes!

I'm curious to see how the original Gate JSDF series will do once the anime begins airing. I wouldn't be too surprised if Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari gets an anime adaptation in the future.

I am happy to see the manga and bunko/books/light novels separated from each other, after how many years? I am also happy to see a step towards the rankings presented how Oricon releases it, to quell any confusions on what the thresholds are for the particular lists.

The only problem I see here is that there is now some redundancy. Some releases are listed twice, when a release being a bunko or a book should be given first priority over being a light novel. The reason why is that a light novel is always either bunko or book format, so it is obvious that the Top 20 light novel list Oricon releases is just a compilation of the Top ranking Bunko and Books which are also classified as light novels.

I'd suggest the listing in the order of Bunko, then Books, then Light Novels and then lastly Book Literature. In stronger weeks, the light novel list will not be needed since most will be in the Bunko list, but in weaker weeks, then it would be needed. This would get rid of the redundancy.

*is waiting for Rokka no Yuusha to air so its light novel can get a major sale boost*

Jul 1, 2015 4:43 PM by Yehart

Oregairu returns to take the top again! DanMachi is also holding well, and so is Date A Live. For a new series, Arifureta is not doing bad either.

Jul 1, 2015 3:58 PM by Vindstot

All kidding aside. If you don't like or don't think it's good, it's still not hard to see why, it clearly does things different from other rom/com school LNs. To pinpoint one reason, it's definitely the protagonist, and that's very clear whether in the west this site or in Japan.

Well... can't say it's surprising to see those sales numbers for Oregairu right now when the anime's finished but damn lol. What do people even see in that series :s

Jul 1, 2015 2:56 PM by HaXXspetten

Quality animation gets quality sales :)
Hope the actual vol breaks 30K in the first days :)
16. **8,113 **8,113 Shinmai Maou no Testament Vol.8 (OVA Bundle)

Jul 1, 2015 2:52 PM by ichii_1

So you choose to change the presentation to avoid the problem/confusion caused by mixing different ranking then? Not a bad idea. So manga and LN sales will have its own thread now. Not a bad idea, either.

Oregairu 11 selling a lot again. Will get this one in around 2 weeks. Crossing fingers to see Rokka no Yuusha volumes appearing in the sales in the next weeks due to the anime. It certainely deserves all the boost it could get.

Kinda like the splitting up of the manga and LN rankings, means we get a broader view of the latter.

*1. 122,607 122,607 Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru. Vol.11
*2. *31,282 *56,908 Date A Live Vol.12
19. **7,511 *97,934 Accel World Vol.18

Oregairu's sales never cease to both impress and please me, such a good series. Can't wait to get my copy and wait for the translation. Date A Live and Accel World continue to sell very well, gonna be a long time before Yen Press' releases catch up to the latter (volume 4 this month!).

16. **8,113 **8,113 Shinmai Maou no Testament Vol.8 (OVA Bundle)

Good good, OVA was simply glorious (gotta love sensei), my copy is on the way.

Jul 1, 2015 2:41 PM by VulgarLife

The Very fact that just the gaiden novels for gate thus the JSDF fought there are also ranking and those are just the bonus afeter stroy chapters....i am hoping to god that both the anime and manga and novel sales will get big boosts and high sales....i just fking love that series :D..

18. *9,027 **9,027 Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari Vol.11
