Accel World sales remaining very steady which is good to see with only 2 days sales. Shame it's selling poorly in the west as we are very far behind and the schedule is painfully slow.

Also fab to see Horizon still going strong, really need to start collecting this series.
Honestly who gives a shit about the West >_> first we need to get season 2 out that then worry about the west after.

So is the Re:Zero boost not that great?


It is great and not weird if you look at it as a part of a bigger picture. Due to the nature of the story which is a slow burner it's all about

consistency > amount

In the end this will result in a big boost which draws even with a shorter but more extreme one. It simply takes more time which is okay since it is 2 cour.


It's great. Full Stop! Every week old volumes are selling 5k. A very good result!

Jun 15, 2016 7:42 PM by scruffykiwi

Ayye, now let's see those legs :)
Should pass 3 million in print with the next vol.

so fifth while being close of 4th and 3rd place for KyouHora then. Was expected.
Best cover tho.

Jun 15, 2016 3:26 PM by Zefyris

Where is my maou sama s2 T_T they have got enough material for that.

Same pattern.

Next week should be interesting.

Jun 15, 2016 1:30 PM by ColdBreeze

Rewatched Hataraku Maou-sama couple days ago and honestly want to pick up the novels now, but man, do I want more seasons, at the rate of the first season there's material for over year and a half of anime.

@Snow Psst... these are the wrong way around.

None of the new releases this week had more than 3 days on the rankings, which, combined with the fact that last week's bigger releases were all at the start of the week, makes this a week with a low threshold.

Jun 15, 2016 12:54 PM by kuuderes_shadow

*2. 29,584 *29,584 Hataraku Maou-sama! Vol

Y U NO SEASON 2.

I think I'll pick up the book one day.

Jun 15, 2016 12:51 PM by Zilf

Maou-sama still doing pretty good.

Re:Zero Vol.5 has yet to make an appearance, maybe with episode 12 later this week that'll change.
