I'm Damn late, But for the sake of my SNK, How fucking high are those damn sales?! And those are only in goddamn japan!

Dungeon Meshi continously doing well with its sales. Nice.

I'm hoping Gin no Saji returns from its hiatus soon.

*4. *,*29,827 Death March kara Hajimaru Isekai Kyousoukyoku Vol.11

Oh I never realized that Death March has been selling quite nicely even before the anime is released. I wonder if they will get any significant bump or not when they release the anime.

Lol, what a good new profile's pic. Well, now I can say with clear conscience that Dengeki is the most powerful publishing house. It is strange only that Mahouka does not have the same advertising company as SAO.
I'm pretty sure both of them are under the same publishing company


I know about this, and therefore I am surprised that they have different hype outside of light novels.

Ok who translated アラフォー by "around 40"? The meaning of that word in japanese isn't "around 40" but "in his forties and single" . (アラ is not the beginning of "around", but of "alone").


... And what a title btw. >_<

I remember One Piece selling more or was I dreaming


For many manga sales are dropping in paper format but thoose in digital version are on the rise, so yeh in the end the amount probably stays the same cuz that there is more digital copies sold which we dont see here.

@Hex-One I meant per volume
This is the last volumes 2nd month sales. This One Piece volume sold 1.5 million last month and this is the same volume in its 2nd month so it has 2.4 million sales total right now
