The LN sells well, but I would not hold your breath for an S2.


It sells around 150000 so there is a good chance isn't it ???


Just the sales alone are not the only indicator of whether a series will get an anime or not. And especially when it comes to second seasons.

Got SAO Progressive vol.5 its very good not read all of it, translating is tough, but floor 6 is one of the best floors so far. Glad it's shown in the results. There is a big SAO announcement in a couple days curious what its gonan be

Feb 17, 2018 4:15 AM by padraicm

SAO Progressive (and few other novels) is released on February 10. Since the ranking is for Feb 5-11, the 48264 copies was sale number for two days?

Latest volume sold almost 150K before falling off the rankings. It's doing fine.


There is no many light novels sell that much so there is a chance for a second season

What do you think ???

It's been forever since there was a Sword Art Online Progressive volume.

20=. Infinite Dendrogram
20=. Grancrest Senki

...

damn, the anime advertisement did its job to make GS in the top 20, but seeing ID in the same place makes me glad that both series are doing well.

*5. *6,637 65,615 Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou Shugi no Kyoushitsu e Vol.7.5


YouJitsu selling is going well, but the anime selling is bad. I still hope for the second season. There are so many stories that haven't been explained.

What, I was sure Spice and Wolf finished long time ago?

You missed the news then. That series was restarted for its 10th year anniversary. However, the new volumes (18-20 so far) are simply short stories, showing the life of the protagonists after the end of the main story.
There is however a sequel that started as well, called ookami to youhishi, which happens in the same time line as the short stories.

Hmm nice to see Sao progressive is doing so well. The Ryou's work is never done is also hanging on strong as well too which is also great news.

Feb 16, 2018 3:03 AM by Shingster

That loli bait keep strong with anime boost.

SAO Progressive anime when?

Still wondering how Hidan no Aria can survive that long.


Hidan no Aria is actually a popular series. After the anime aired, Vol 1-15 sold above 100k each.
I don't really mean about that since I know it is rather popular. I'm talking about the story here. Granted that I only read up to vol 8 but still I just didn't see where it is heading up from there. Like is there anything more to tell?

*7. *4,185 45,793 Ryuuou no Oshigoto! Vol.7
*8. *3,837 78,162 Ryuuou no Oshigoto! Vol.1
*9. *3,541 58,632 Ryuuou no Oshigoto! Vol.2
10. *3,517 57,650 Ryuuou no Oshigoto! Vol.3
12. *3,325 50,714 Ryuuou no Oshigoto! Vol.5
13. *3,286 51,707 Ryuuou no Oshigoto! Vol.4
14. *3,262 52,083 Ryuuou no Oshigoto! Vol.6

Still getting boost from anime. Vol 1 should reach 100k eventually, and would be great if other volumes will too.

The author decided to continue the story couple of years ago. There is another series that features Holo and Lawrence's daughter.
