Ahh... it's that time of the week again where "the sale is so low that older LN is popping up in the ranking again" since it's rare to see a season 2 anime LN getting into these rankings again.

23. *3,112 *,233,058 Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! Vol.1

I wonder how long KonoSuba will be able to held that top 10 Oricon ranking. A couple more months till at least the OVA? Although Re:Zero was able to go up the rankings a couple of times while the anime already ended for some time/

And SAO is still conquering the market I see. The sales on the movie is impressive after all, so I wasn't surprised that their LN got boosted too

20. *3,389 *,823,291 Sword Art Online Vol.1

*7. *6,146 *,**8,908 Isekai Izakaya "Nobu"

Cool. I hope this novel gets even more popular this year.

This looks nice :)
*6. *7,826 *,**7,826 Legend Vol.8

I need to get the other honzuki no gekokujou, the first 3 were great. That's the 10th volume if I'm not mistaken.
btw it's not in the main list even though it's on the book list. should be 4th on the main list (or 6th with biblia and shinrei tantei included)~.

3 SAO novels in the top 20 with two taking the 1st and 2nd spots. As a fanboy I'm very pleased. :D

SAO not giving up first place!

Mar 15, 10:52 PM by joe_g7

Really enjoying the SAO GGO novels - maybe because it's Shigusawa idk. Also seeing the new Spice & Wolf sequel is selling well makes me happy.

Mar 15, 8:52 PM by cure_potato

Ayyy, glad to know SAO is topping it still.
