*5. 21,376 *50,493 Kimi no Na wa.

good to see this on the list. It seems it's getting positive opinions as a novel (garden of words did better tho). I wonder how the movie will be doing, I hope it will be a hit :)

P.S the title on amazon according to google translate "The name of the novel kun"... I love it ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Same here, I'm glad the "EXPLOOOSIOON!" girl is on the top. I wouldn't mind if both me and Megu-chin do a bit of EXPLOOOSIOON! together. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

No Re Zero sales today? Ouch.


The volumes themselves didn't rank but overall Re:Zero still sold more than any other series except KonoSuba, so everything's fine :)


Alrighty. Coolio. Can't wait for the next episode.

After the last episodes? Not sure where's the surprise.


Too hurtful? I was hoping how unique it is would help it gain more sales.

Kuudere, I think it's Ubawareru mono, not Utawarerumono.


Fixed. Stupid mistake on my part. Sometimes my fingers just go into automatic mode. >90% of the time they then get it right, but that one is a series where I've always thought the title sounded amusingly similar to Utawarerumono, and I guess the wrong thing came out...

The series has nothing whatsoever to do with the visual novel Utawarerumono, in case someone got confused.

KONOSUBA AGAIN!!!! YES!!!!! XD
