good to see shin dxd 2 in top 10

*4. 14,480 14,480 Shin Highschool DxD Vol.1

Shin dxd 2 did even better than vo1
*3. 18,466 *18,466 Shin High School DxD Vol.2


It didn't have much competition this week compared to Vol 1. Even so, I don't think it's enough for another season. Rakudai sells a similar amount at this level and it has yet to get another season. So it could also be the case for DxD

GS LN was performing really bad in Japan.

Despite it being in air it barely reach 30k sale.


It's strange that the manga on the other hand is selling over 100k per volume.

Manga in general has always sells more than LNs.

Manga have always a huge hit in every country (comic in western).

Another example if you may is the Slime isekai, It has like 200-500k sales each for most of the volume while the LN barely hit 50k-100k.
