I'll probably watch the Sword Oratoria anime, but I'm really hoping we get a DanMachi season 2 really in the near future, my guess is sooner than later, since they pretty much used 5 volumes for season 1 and they just released volume 10.

Jun 23, 2016 12:09 PM by Ahoy_NATO

Overlord always manages to surprise me, I expected it (before release) to do 125k & then drop off the list, so 10k more in 3 weeks is nice.

Also, considering Re:Zero's success & current anime trend of time loop/travel - will Dangeki bunko finally decide to promote HakoMari as it deserves to be?

Jun 23, 2016 12:02 PM by JetNoir

woohoo "Rokudenashi Majutsu Koushi to Akashic Records" is in the list

"Those girls" (the Hiryute sisters) mostly appear in the spin off so far, and far less in the main series. So if you want to see them more, rather than a "season 2 of the main series", that's "more of the spin off" that you need :p.

really ? :o
well, the spin-off is a must watch for me then xD
thank for the info btw XD

Sword oratoria is basically a parallel story of the Loki familia.
So the main cast is the top brass of that familia+Lefiya.
So Ais, Riveria, Lefiya, Finn Deimne, the Hiryute sisters, Bete, Gareth aaaand obviously Loki herself.
So lots of badass characters here.

Netgame no Yome wa Onna no Ko ja Nai to Omotta? getting a boost with the anime adaptation, not bad.

I still very hope that Hataraku Maou-sama! gets a sequel this year.

12. *6,961 135,530 Overlord Vol.10

is it save to say that it's doing better than NGNL and DanMachi..? wonder if it'll reach 150k before dropping from the list..

AFAIK,
NGNL volume 8 did 135k before disappearing from the ranking
And Danmachi 10 ( LE included) did around 130k.
So with those 135k Overlord is around the same level.

Jun 23, 2016 12:06 AM by Zefyris

All these season 2's when?

Jun 22, 2016 8:32 PM by Protaku

Could it be that people are just reading the WN version rather than buying the LNs?

I mean, the story is largely the same and it's free online.

Jun 22, 2016 8:30 PM by Sarnik

Wow, danmachi still first, I would like to have another season

Overlord just top hopefully it reaches 150k and then hope for a miracle to get a 2nd season from madhouse.....


Well it's not like they are the ones to decide that.
I heard from various source material readers that the anime adapted or actually not adapted certain scenes that were necessary for a sequel to make sense. Apparently the ending in particular made it clear that this was more like a one time LN advertising project.
A man can dream though.

Jun 22, 2016 5:13 PM by Fappa

Will Kyoani make another season of amagi?

Is the dream alive?

Awful ,if only the anime came out a year earlier it would have done better, the isekai boom is in full effect now.

And yeah was just wanted to say the same about Hundred its really doing poorly for LN that got an anime adaptation makes me wonder why they choose this one out of so many harem LN cuz after watchin the anime i was kinda like meh thats it? in its genre its probably one of the worse i have seen as in anime or perhaps it just needs more episodes to make it more interesting which aint gonna happen either cuz i can already see the bd-dvd sales to be at 500~1k max...


Anyway so nice to see this
*1. 41,706 *41,706 Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka Gaiden: Sword Oratoria Vol.6

Cant wait for the anime to start, cuz already now its selling so good and after that they better go and make 2nd season for danmachi >_<

Right? Meanwhile, the US only has four volumes translated. We are so painfully behind.

Okitegami still hanging in, while Okobore Hime returned to the rank after so long. Good good.
