Top new volume, and top volume overall, was the new Love Live School Idol Diary. The top bunko light novel was Kokuhaku Yokou Renshuu’s new volume, which sold 16679. That series is one which has shown itself to have a very strong tail in the past.

Next Life volume 5 sells 11816 in 3 days. Volume 3 sold 12162 in 5, so that seems to be doing well now.

Madan no Ou to Vanadis volume 10 is now the bestselling volume of the series of all time.

Shinyaku Index vol 11 is now just 1k below the sales of vol 10, from roughly the same amount of time.

Accel World 17 passes the 100k mark. It might not rank again, though. Although next week is a slow one which could help it.

Hachinantte does get a second week for the first time, but only thanks to the literature rankings – without them it would have been 818 too low. It adds 4178 sales to bring its total above 20k for the first time ever.

Most of the new volumes in this covered week came out towards of the end of the week, so we can expect several of them to rank again next time.

Oda Nobuna no Yabou is out of the rankings, as are all volumes of AmaBuri.
