And I feel bad for Spice&Wolf. Yes, it is just anoth short stories compilation but looks like otakus are still keeping a grudge for Hasekura.


Maybe people just aren't interested in the story anymore, it's rather long at this point.


Nah. He also publishes the sequel and one totally different but also good LN seriies and both sale not that great comparinmg to earlier S&W volumews.

SAO with 200k is really impressive considering how the LN is a market quite smaller in comparison to manga. SAO sales are bigger than many and many manga that don't reach even 200k.

When your spin off on its first week doesn't even has twice the sales of your main series in its 5th week, feelsbadman.
Especially considering that volume 10 of SO was eaaaasily better than vol 12 and 13 of Danmachi, peoples are missing out on that one.

No wonder Eromanga-Sensei is back on the charts, thanks to the latest OVA series that I’ve yet to watch due to lack of English Subs.
Good to see DanMachi doing well before the movie airs though and of course always pleased to see Re;Zero up there!

Jan 18, 7:37 AM by _MushiRock11_

I am more glad to see that DanMachi's still hanging in there in the top 10 rather than noticing that Eromanga-sensei taking the top spot....
