Kochinpa! Dainiki – This started well, and ended decently enough I suppose. But there were way too many segments with those random old men. That stopped being funny almost immediately and I really wish they’d come up with something – anything – else. Although the last episode wouldn’t have worked, devoting about a third of the entire series to a single gag? No thanks.

Dropped:
Kenka Banchou Otome: Girl Beats Boys

Kenka Banchou Otome: Girl Beats Boys – dropped as soon as the brother came in. The series doesn’t have enough value to compensate for the awkwardness. Didn’t like the fact that they kept breaking up important scenes with fragments of the OP either.

Still got 10 things left on the intend to watch list, which is more than I’m actually watching. Why does this always happen?

POS Monthly Bunsho rankings March 2017

Figures given in brackets are last month’s rankings.

The list below is the POS ranking March (NOT April – it’s my fault this is so late this time). 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.
