Why spread hate stories..Keep your own taste with urself -_-

Wish it gets a second season already XD!
A spin-off on volume 5,6 is possible right now.

Looks like Rakudai's boost is starting to be gone. It should be around 7k for this weekly chart and it was 11k the week before.

7 volumes of KonoSuba sold 10k and 7 volumes of Bahamut sold 9k. So far it's pretty much a tie, but let's see which LN series will gain the biggest boost from anime this season.

POS ranks for series with anime airing in Winter 2016:

KonoSuba:
221位 この素晴らしい世界に祝福を!8 アクシズ教団VSエリス教団
450位 この素晴らしい世界に祝福を! あぁ、駄女神さま

Saijaku Muhai no Bahamut:
469位 最弱無敗の神装機竜

The Brazilian branch are sure a 2nd season is in the works, so I'd say it's matter of time until it's officially announced.

Does this rankings go beyond #21?


There's a Top 500 Bunko and Books list (Oricon only releases Top 50 Bunko and Books though), where Oricon picks the Top 20 Light Novels from both these lists. The Top 20 Literature list is picked from the Top 500 Books list.

#21 in MAL's ranking is actually from the Literature list, not from the Light Novel list.

Well some of their anime have sequels. Black Lagoon, Chihayafuru, Kaiji, Hajime no Ippo, Diamond no Ace, just to name a few........but yeah most of their works seem to never get sequels.


Anime with continuous seasons do not count, but Madhouse five years ago that does not sequels.

Well when you put it that way, I guess Madhouse really does have a sequel-less curse.

Man I didn't know NGNL was selling like that. Maybe we will get a season 2 one of these days.


NGNL never have sequel because the end was invented. And various parts of the novel jumped.
