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.

Light novel POS ranks for September 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.

For an explanation of what this is, as well as last month’s full rankings, see here

Oricon’s monthly rankings will be out either this or next Thursday (another advantage POS has is that its data almost always comes out faster than Oricon’s) – usually it’s the second Thursday of the month but we haven’t had a month beginning on Thursday (excluding January where things are a bit weird anyway) since May last year so I’m not sure if it will be on the second or third one. Bear in mind that POS data works on a calendar month, whereas Oricon data does not.

Light novel POS ranks for August 2015

I’m not sure whether or not I will do this regularly. It’s quite a lot of effort and I’m not sure how much people will use it. As such I have left this uncategorised for now.

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