Man, I can't keep up with all of these, they just keep piling and piling.

Seriously, wish somebody would license 'Rokudenashi Majutsu Koushi to Memory Records' already?! sigh...

Yes, for the time being, @-InfiniteLoop-. Read my replies in this thread.

Mar 1, 2:42 PM by Snow

I'm disappointed that they stopped posting these.

@Snow - Has MAL discontinued posting weekly sales threads? If yes I'd appreciate if you could at least tell us why such a decision was made.

Sales thread have been absent for weeks now. Shame since I'm usually looking forward to CD and LN sales.

Still waiting for that Classroom of the Elite season 2..

I hope there would be a second season for this LN, haha …
I hope so. The dvds didn't sell that well but the novels were really boosted by it.

Feb 8, 12:57 PM by duhu1148

I did a search, and the Scope Musou novel actually originates from the web novel "Shousetsuka ni Narou" site, before it gets published as a LN under MF Bunko J : https://ncode.syosetu.com/n6711eo/

can you give summary what story this novel has?

"the age of sword and magic has ended. Now the shovel is the strongest!"

Aran is the world's strongest miner.
After mining for 100 years, his shovel was firing a rock melting beam.
After mining for 1,000 years, that beam evolved into a wave cannon. Just getting high spirited was enough to fire it.
One day, Aran saved the princess Leticia from mountain brigands. After wiping out (together with the mountain) the brigands, the queen hired him as her bodyguard. As a reward, "I'll do anything!"
And so begins the tale of the peerless shovel user. His sheer strength made the princess fall in love at first sight, saying "let's do erotic shovel stuff together*! " as she proposed to him, but all of this was nothing more than the prologue of what would become a miner's legend sung by the gods themselves.

* (how the hell am I supposed to translate that, I don't know tbh, that's such a ridiculous sentence)


... I mean, why not. Well, I definitely see why not, but... *shudder*.


i am lost at words.

MT not doing all that great :'(. BTW do these numbers also include electronic purchases? Like from bookwalker etc. ?

They don't, so some titles may appear performing far worse in total sales than they actually do.
