Light novel POS ranks for November 2015

Figures in brackets after the volume titles indicate last months rankings if applicable. RE indicates a reentry onto the rankings. If a volume is new or came out in a previous month but has not ranked before then no figure is given.

The list below is the POS ranking for November. 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).

Bear in mind that, unlike Oricon, POS rankings use the calendar month for the monthly rankings data.
