Gotta start reading the novel of Youkoso Jitsuryoku soon now.

Oct 5, 2018 8:18 AM by Congintive

well Classroom of the Elite managed to top Re:Zero this week and hey Tensei Slime managed to get into the middle of the two (though I wonder how long it would be that way since a new volume of 86's coming up soon).

The slime LN was already quite popular befor the anime same goes to arifureta. So adding an anime it will only boost the sales more for this 2. As for re:zero the sales are kinda as they were will probably stop around 45-50k~ as i recall.

Won't happen cos the changes the anime made confirmed it won't be receiving more.

Glad to see Kinugasa's stuff doing well. Vol 9 was pretty nice.
