Will Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru get any boost from the anime ?

Before the anime 7 volumes sold for a total of 600,000 . I don't know if that is a good figure for a light novel series ?
It's really good, seems too much considering the lastest volume hopped off the rankings with 33k sales though.

A new volume comes out in December so it will be back with a vengeance and might stay on for months :P
oh shit,..I forgot about the 10th volume coming in Dcember..:D
I wonder if it'll top the list in its first week tho..


In a normal week, I'd say that it would be expected, but if it comes out on the last release week of the year that would be a very big achievement - that week is consistantly the busiest week for releases of the entire year.

Could you at least look this up? The anime adapted 76 chapters, there's 87 in the manga and the latest chapter was released last year AFTER 5 years of nothing.

Then why the hell are you asking for season 3, for all you know the story ended in season 2.
Jesus christ just stop embarrassing yourself.

So many new releases between 19th-25th October, so I doubt we'll see Rakudai, Asterisk, Sakurako-san and others on this week's chart.

Dang, Accel World already has 19 volumes? America is so behind! :(
Well, more for the anime to adapt...eventually...
with infinite burst on the way and the blu rays coming out in December 23 there is a good chance we will see a season 2 since Kawahara triying to do is make people excited for every characters that haven't made appearance in anime; means he's creating story that aiming for second season of AW as well as additional story for the latest arc of LN. a good plan if you ask me
