Is this the first time a light novel has topped the best seller list?


No idea. Let's see if I can find any others. EDIT: pretty sure this should be the light novel at the top spot, not the manga. Seems like that was the last time. EDIT 2: Hmm seems as though the two might be combined when they have the same title...

Old news and not actually related to either of the pictures in question. Plus of course there's the fact that the tracing was just the general outline of the pictures, which I doubt is what they are complementing.

So great to see NGNL still going strong 2 years later. Also, it's just great to see Light Novels sell well in general.

Tokyo ghoul will stay as long as new volumes come out every 2 months so it will probably reach 120 weeks like Shingeki no kyojin,

I wonder if NGNL being at the top is also thanks to its avaliablity, I got my copy as an E-book from Amazon, but is that option the same for many of the others?


does this top 10 count digital copies ( i know oricon doesn't)


The NYT website says "E-book rankings reflect sales from leading online vendors of e-books in a variety of popular e-reader formats." and "E book sales are presently included for all adult categories, excluding graphic novels"

So I'd say yes.

Happy to see NGNL at number 1. I already have my copy but I've yet to even read the first 3.

Why are THOSE mangos ranked higher than Punpun?

Fuck shit taste

Still I'm glad it's selling well

Doing better than most niche series in NY Times, JoJo usually drops to #10 in just one week.

idk why there's still so much demand for TG vol 1 though, I would think its fanbase has started to decrease after not having an anime for a while, similar to how AoT is declining.
Yeah, I don't understand it either

But I sincerely hope suppose it's going to happen eventually
