Nice going Mahouka just what I can expect from it. Also, Konosuba hopes that both wills continue to sell well.

Death March usually has much higher first week sales. Probably because it went on sale on Sunday. Similarily with Mahouka.

Slime volume 1 managed to barely managed to get over the cut-off point.


Still waiting for total series ranking.

Buta Yarou seems to be getting the best boost out of the LN series with anime adaptions this season.

Isn't it fairly short and already completed? So people probably feel motivated to buy the entire series in one go.
Its still publishing, so no its not completed yet.

37k is not bad for one days worth of sales, gg mahouka.

Yes!! Mahouka and KonoSuba at the top <3

@snow
I think you forgot to include this :
" *7,295 165,777 Biblia Koshodou no Jiken Techou Vol.8 "
in the main ranking, it should logically be at rank 7 ; yet it is nowhere to be seen.

Nice sales for first week. Sasuga Onii-sama.

One can even speculate if the sales are for waifus or the MC.

Number 1 didn't surprise me but yay Death March got in the top 3.

A little late but I don't like the anime (adaptation). I think I need to start read the novel.
