Sasuga Onii-sama, as always.

Does anyone have (or know where I can find) the monthly sales by series? As in, the sales of all the volumes of a given series (manga or light novel) over the month. I remember someone (I think ejc or kuudere_shadows) posting it here in the past.

Sasuga Onii-sama, topping the LN sales.

Nothing much to say on Manga tbh as always SNK topped but Really happy to see Mahouka still retained its position with Date a Live and Hidan no Aria also remained in top 10.

Lolicon sells better than SAO spin-off with hyped adaptation? It's amazing.

*9. *,235,004 Mix Vol.13

I can't wait for the anime adaptation, although it gives me too much Touch vibes.


Ryuuou no Oshigoto! is an embodiment of light novels, you should not be surprised.
