Japanese Light Novel Sales for w/c 10th November – summary and assorted comments.

Full data for this week’s sales: http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=1310325

This was a slow week, and this is clear from the week’s rankings.
DanMachi top seller as expected, although Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon’s second week managed to stop it getting both the top places. 28913 sales in 3 days against the last volumes 30221 sales in 6 is a big jump, though.

Seiken Tsukai no World Break 9 sees a rather more modest sales boost, selling very slightly more copies in 3 days than the last volume did in 4. This is the sole other volume with >10k sales.

Inou-Battle manages to rank for the first time, with volume 9 getting 4385 sales in week 1, also over 3 days. That’s a good boost there. It showed up on the series ranking as well, although I’m rather sceptical of that ranking (it seems to cut out volumes for which sales data is still collected.

A couple of series that didn’t make it onto the rankings on release last week have made it in on week 2, such as volume 18 of Sanzen Sekai no Karasu wo Koroshi.

With just 9 light novels on the bunko rankings and none at all in the books rankings, there’s plenty of space in the light novels rankings for more. Surprisingly, the ranking requirement isn’t particularly low (about 10% below last week). Index and AmaBuri reappear on the rankings after having been absent last week, and Kokuhaku Yokou Renshuu shows up with all 3 volumes, giving us the full sales figure (114k) for the first volume.

We’ll probably be getting the yearly ranking over the next few days/weeks.
