Light novel POS ranks for February 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 February. The rankings cover the top 500 sellers of all books 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.
