Saijaku Muhai no Bahamut on the series rankings with no new volumes out. First definite signs of anime boost for the new season?

Based on how much the new volume of Rokujouma and KanColle sold during this charted week, I'd say Saijaku Bahamut sold around 6k during the week.


Just to point out, the KanColle series on the rankings is not the one in the series rankings.

Also, 7th sold precisely 7498 so we know it sold more than that.

Should wait for the next weekly charts since the anime hasn't started airing. During Oct 5 -11 week where there was no new volume, Rakudai and Asterisk each sold around 17k. There was one week where the older volumes of Rakudai altogether sold almost 30k and Asterisk at least 20k. It's likely Bahamut will get a boost in the coming weeks, but the question is will it be a significant boost or a small boost?

Tokyo Ravens please reach 40k sales before disappearing on the rankings.

At long last, Okitegami is added to the MAL database; after 5 volumes have been published, that is. Nice to see the incessant sell.

I'm curious to see when NGNL breaks the 100k mark.

Oh I also noticed that MAL finally added the entry for Okitegami Kyouko no Taishoku Negai. Nice. I'm curious to check out this series in the future myself.

Jan 6, 2016 2:18 PM by Stark700

Fab to see High School DxD DX vol 2 pass 40k total sales. Hugely impressive for a side stories series.

*5. 10,623 *12,342 Potion, Wagami wo Tasukeru Vol.2

While there isn't a synopsis the title and cover makes me think of alchemy and thus the Atelier series. Gonna look into this more. Regardless it's selling well.
