I have a question for ppl in this thread and those who usually post in these threads.

Are you even reading the light novels on the list or commenting on numbers that you can barely understand?
Numbers you can barely understand? I think they're pretty self explanatory tbh. And yes, I read mahouka, but I'm also generally curious on seeing what else sells well.

God, give finally Accer World the damn deserved 2nd season: it cries practically for iT!!!

Oh, Overlord fell from first to second place in total series sales... I still think it's hilarious that Overlord manages to get just the right amount of sales per volume that no individual volume gets into the rankings, but the series itself still remains the top (or now right next to it) in terms of total series sales.

Well I'm happy Hataraku Maou-sama is inthe top 3. Though I did expect that the number 7 title & Saijaku Muhai no Bahamut would show up somewhere in the top 10

I only comment on if I'm reading at least 1 LN in the rankings. I don't see why do I need to read ALL the LNs in the list to qualify posting in this thread.

I'm reading two series that are in the top 10 this week (Honzuki (which is an amazing series btw) and KyouHora), and usually I'm speaking mostly of series I'm reading, yes.
Although like k_s said, I really don't see how reading them or not would make a difference about understanding their sales' numbers.

For the most part, no I'm not reading them (Accel World, HataMaou and Mahouka are the only ones on this week's rankings that I have read any of at all). Why should I need to be reading a series in order to understand and/or discuss how well it is selling though?

If you can barely understand them ,it does not mean that others are like that too
And no, most of the people usually have watched the anime adaptation only but still a lot of the people that comment have also read those mangas/light novels
