Light novel POS ranks for August 2015

I’m not sure whether or not I will do this regularly. It’s quite a lot of effort and I’m not sure how much people will use it. As such I have left this uncategorised for now.

The list below is the POS ranking for August. The rankings cover the top 500 sellers of all books (but not manga) during the month, but those given below are just the light novels on the list. This is why there are many gaps in the rankings. There are no sales figures given for this data, and the data set is different from the one Oricon uses, which explains differences in the rankings. It has the advantage, though, of reporting much lower ranks than Oricon does (there are 100 things listed below, compared to just 20 for oricon’s monthly light novel rankings).
