The Author of Hunter X Hunter, Yoshihiro Togashi, is the same person that made my favorite manga during my young days, Yuyu Hakusho.

Despite that, I didn't choose to read HXH because none of the characters in it look as cool as his previous work, like Urameshi, Hiei, Kuwabara, Kurama, and some of the strong demons in Yuyu Hakusho like the Toguro brothers.

The only series I know that had sold a lot more LN copies during or after their anime aired to the point that some of their volumes had reached above 100k were these.

Before 2010: Shakugan no Shana, Haruhi Suzumiya, Zero no Tsukaima, Toradora, Monogatari, Toaru Index, Spice and Wolf, Kino's Journey, Seitokai no Ichizon

2010: Baka to Test, Durarara, OreImo

2011: Haganai, Hidan no Aria, Infinite Stratos, Gosick

2012: Hyouka, SAO, Accel World

2013, Hataraku Maou-sama, OreGairu, Date A Live

2014: No Game No Life, Mahouka, Kagerou Daze

2015: Overlord, DanMachi

2016: KonoSuba, ReZero

2017: Youjo Senki, Eromanga Sensei,
YouJitsu, Rokudenashi

Looks like from this year Ryuuou might join these series.

Times change I guess.


Um.... I expect to hear these type of comment from people that are new to the manga sales thing, not from people that join from 09 and 12.

That volume for snk already sold over 1 million, that is just left over sales from this month.

This is the monthly sales, not weekly, snk latest volume came out in December not January.


Yeah me neither as isekai said, you don't have to jump into all the defensive stance cause we said BnHA outsold AoT, chill.

Yakusoku no Neverland seizes to amaze on how well it's doing on manga alone.

It's nice to see Ryuuou no Oshigoto cover six spots in the LN ranking [where's volume 6?] the anime seems to have a nice effect on its sales.

I hope Wotaku ni Koi wa Muzukashii keeps it up even after the anime airs. Also, with outstanding sales, it's just about time that Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai: Tensai-tachi no Renai Zunousen will get some sort of adaptation.
