Light novel POS ranks for January 2016

Figures in brackets after the volume titles indicate last months rankings if applicable. RE indicates a reentry onto the rankings (For simplicity’s sake, things that were released before last month that are showing up on the rankings are shown as “RE” even if they have never ranked before). 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 January. 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.

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

Ichigo Mashimaro 12 END

Grimgar – when I watched the first two episodes my thoughts were “seems reasonable but nothing special”. However, for some reason, when I came back to it two days later it magically and seemingly instantaneously transformed into something quite great.
I don’t know if it was something about that day but the KonoSuba episode I watched on the same day was also my favourite of the series so far.

Ichigo Mashimaro – A nice, light and fun series – odd, then, that it took nearly a year to watch from start to finish. It’s things like that that made me decided I needed a season of catching up with things, but I don’t seem to have the motivation to do anywhere near as much as I thought. Oh well Apparently the manga for this is still ongoing. The last volume was out almost 3 years ago, but there was more than 4 years between that and the previous one. I’ll be picking it up at some point soon.
