For the second consecutive week, Kokuhaku Yokou Renshuu is the bestselling bunko light novel volume, outselling the first couple of days’ sales from all the new Dengeki releases, not one of which passes the 10k sales mark. They’ll get bigger sales next week, though.

Kokuhaku Yokou Renshuu, though, had not one but two entries on this week’s rankings, with Yakimochi no Kotoe reranking on the light novel ranking section, giving its first data since July. This pushes it up 38k sales to a little over 93k. It was already the series’ bestselling volume.

Shinyaku Index 11 becomes the bestselling volume of that series this year based on weekly sales figures.

AmaBuri volume 1 is back on the rankings, aided by the far lower cutoff this week (last week’s was over 5000 for bunko rankings, compared to this week with 3781 for bunko and 3515 for light novels). It sold 3851 copies this week bringing its total to 57368, which means 3352 last week.

Accel world 17 did manage to rank again – just. It grabbed the bottom spot on the light novel rankings.

Mahouka, OreTwi and SAO once again in the series rankings without anything in the main sales chart. Madan no Ou to Vanadis also appears on there – not once, but twice.
