honestly speaking I expected better sales from KonoSuba. Has that been just a couple days or did it really fall of that much (despite the other vols still selling somewhat decently)?
Especially with season 2 announced with date and all I thought it's going to sell more :(
Let's hope and see if it's still up there next week


The sales will probably skyrocket once the regular edition of volume 9 comes out (It comes out July 1). This limited edition is the one with the OVA and is a bit more expensive. Having almost 18k sales for a limited edition is not a drop at all in Konosuba standards.

ah I see. I thought both the bundle and the standalone version would sell at the same time. Thanks for the info

All light novel entries are classed as "novel" on MAL
I was not referring to MAL entry tho ;_;

probably its a WN which got a LN later on or something like that...


It's published under the same label as a certain other series with "gate" in the title with which you may be familiar (well, one of two labels for the latter, and the one that is closer to being a light novel label). The label itself is one of those that falls in the grey zone as to whether or not it's a light novel label, but most places treat it as one.

Hyped for Qualidea Code anime

Jun 30, 2016 5:06 AM by Xenocrisi

Oh Re:Zero Tanpenshuu sold actually well for a spin off series!

Ah just how I expected it.

Now that we're in arc 3 and volume 4 it starts to rank. So people really buy the volumes that are currently adapted by the anime and don't try to read ahead.

I'm a bit surprised about the Qualidea Code sales. The magical trio of Watari, Tachibana and Sagara seems to work.
