*2. 15,890 15,890 Date A Live: Encore Vol.7

Whew, the spin-offs for DAL is doing great as always. Natsumi on the cover is cute! At first I thought it's gonna be Inverse Tohka, because she's in the volume 7 cover, but I guess this will be the first spin-off to not be from its main series' counterpart.



And I'm guessing KonoSuba would reach 100k in another 2 weeks. Still going strong for KonoSuba!

*9. *7,709 91,127 Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! Vol.13

Why most of isekai light novels have so few legs compared to others? Slime Tensei sold more than 50k but only lasted two weeks in the ranking and the same happens with stuff like Tondemo Skill or Toaru Ossan.

Isekai Yururi Kikou doing well, anime in a few years.

Dec 28, 2017 8:24 AM by ichii_1

Who would thought that Isekai would be so poplar.

Dec 28, 2017 6:48 AM by Swagernator

It's funny, but almost all the novels this time is isekai, a harem or both together. What kind of monotony, although I adore ReZero and waiting for the adaptation of the pair of titles mentioned here.

Dec 28, 2017 6:37 AM by RobertBobert

I dont see anything there..
oh well least something is there.

Dec 28, 2017 6:30 AM by Xaelath

Glad Re:Zero is doing well ! Can't wait for S2
