Yay for SAO (S3 when?), Date-A-Live, Overlord, Mahouka (season 2 when), NGNL (season 2 when?), Fate/Grand Order, and Himouto! I don't know a lot fo the others lol I wnated to se Rokka no Yuusha on the list (and DanMachi just because).

Danmachi's volume 9 is getting out in 13 days so you'll see danmachi in those threads in 3 weeks.

According to the overlord anime twitter account, the reprints that pushed the ln over 1.5 million shipped out today :P

prepare for a big boost in 2 weeks XD

Aug 28, 2015 6:46 PM by ichii_1

I'm so sad that Rokka didn't get a boost OTL

SAO III and TAMNI III would make my year if they ever get announced.

And I thought SAO II was amazing even adaption wise. I don't mind the same studio and director if they can do S3 as well

Of course. ^^

I knew Overlord would do exceedingly well...

But this completely overshadowed my first assumption.

Just, Wow. LOL.

Overlord selling well, I should pick up the anime, but I heard the pacing sucks??

Actually some moments here and there are left out :O
The pacing is fine, it's just the action junkies complaining.

SAO's sales are lower compared to its previous volume with almost the same amount of time. The one year hiatus hurted it quite a bit. Though it's still selling way above everything in total so it doesn't matter much.

And didn't notice that TM Ace is also being reported here. That means almost 45k people have that Craft Essence, Journey's Beginning, that will get boosted on Monday. I really need to find a friend who has that.

Go Overlord!

Aug 27, 2015 6:40 AM by braveofeden

tfw Rokka is still decreasing. 2/3 of my favorite shows this season are LN's (GATE and Rokka). Not even on the list. But I see GATE climbing up there though.

Oh, Overlord making a bit of presence this week. I guess the anime adaptation helped a bit with the popularity.

Interesting to see up there though:
*4. 19,132 *19,132 Death March kara Hajimaru Isekai Kyousoukyoku Vol.5

Anyway, I really want a Mushoku Tensei adaptation.
While I'd like that too it's probably going to turn out worse than the Overlord adaption.I mean look at the manga, I doubt it'd be able to do it justice.Especially with inner monologues cut,half-assed world building and so on.....But I'd still watch it for the Service 100%.

But hey maybe 1 day they decide to adapt it with 100+ episodes with perfect execution! Right?

I think I'm the only one to not understand the Overlord hype x)

Anyway, I really want a Mushoku Tensei adaptation.

Truly a god-tier novel. Shame that it doesn't get as much recognition as it deserves.
