Light novel POS ranks for Year 2016

Figures in brackets after the volume titles indicate last year’s rankings if applicable. RE indicates a volume that came out before last year but did not appear in last year’s rankings. If a volume is new or came out last year but did not rank then no figure is given.

The list below is the POS (bunsho) ranking for the full year 2016. The rankings cover the top 500 sellers of all books during the year, 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 year for the yearly rankings data.
