16. *6,120 **6,120 Isekai wa Smartphone to Tomo ni. Vol.3


MAL synopsis: "Touya Mochizuki was accidentally killed, and as an apology, God allows him to be reborn in a fantasy world and will grant him any one wish he desires. And so, Touya chooses to keep his smartphone in the next world. In his second chance at life, he befriends many important figures and comes across the world’s secret. He inherits the legacy of an ancient civilization and travels around nonchalantly while possessing powers that rival this world's kings."

What the fuck? XD

So Overlord's boost is still by far bigger than anything from Fall even though its anime ended 2 months ago, crazy. Probably the leggiest anime boost since SAO. This week seems to be packed with alternate worlds/reincarnation light novels. I wonder if it's another one of those "Specialist label" weeks that K_S mentioned weeks ago.


What if I told you that this week was the first one without any DanMachi volumes on those POS rankings since the anime started airing (although there were fewer volumes on the rankings by this stage than Overlord has now and the last volume that came out before the anime finished airing had disappeared by the end of September)?

As for the specialist label thing, Alphapolis and HJ Novels both publish quite a few of them, but neither are any more specialist than both being fantasy labels.

Tsuki ga Michibiku Isekai Douchuu in the top 10 this week huh? I'm glad NT volume 14 is still doing quite well. Might also give Arifureta Shokugyou de Sekai Saikyou a try in the future.

Fab to see Mahouka top again. That Imouto LN sounds right up my alley, hope I can read it someday. Strike the Blood still going strong is always a pleasure to see. Not given up on a S2 someday.
