Don't know anything about this one, but I already hate it, since it has copied the title of my favorite Light Novel


What? This one? https://myanimelist.net/manga/76055/Houkago_wa_Muteki_desu_ga_Nani_ka

Kumo desu ga Nani ka was hardly the first series with that style of title. And just because another series comes along with a similar title doesn't mean it's copying it.

How is SAO doing compared to previous volume?


Last volume did 227557 in 26 days, whereas this one has done 227707 in 24, so it's actually doing better.

^Biblia koshodou and shinrei tantei yakumo aren't in the main list either, at the very least, but that one may be intentional .
Also, isn't that SUPER LOW sales for a first + second week for biblia koshodou?
Or has it been so long since the last volume of biblia released that I forgot how much it was selling before


Those two were excluded from last week's ranking as well, whereas the literature books rankings have always been included before.

Re: Biblia - from the refugeechan thread:
*79,855部 156,833部 17/02/25 ***9日 ビブリア古書堂の事件手帖 7 ~栞子さんと果てない舞台~  ※一部書店のみ24日発売

153,494部 153,952部 14/12/25 ***4日 ビブリア古書堂の事件手帖 6 ~栞子さんと巡るさだめ~
126,492部 280,444部 14/12/25 **11日 ビブリア古書堂の事件手帖 6 ~栞子さんと巡るさだめ~

So yes it is down quite a lot but it's not easy to say how much by at this point.
