POS Monthly Bunsho rankings February 2017

Figures given in brackets are last month’s rankings.

The list below is the POS ranking for February (not March). 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.

Most requested English light novel licenses #3 – J-Novel Club edition

This post is, of course, related to my two previous blog posts on most requested English light novel licenses. However, this time it comes not from people sending tweets to Yen Press, but from requests to J-Novel Club.

More specifically, I have gone through every posts on the suggestions board of their website’s forums, counting the number of unique users supporting any given series being picked up. The site also features a liking system, and people liking a post suggesting a series has also been included where appropriate. However it is worth noting that most posts contain more than just a single suggestion (unlike tweets on twitter) so there were only a few cases where these were actually able to be included. A couple of the posts that are included do have notable impacts on the list.

As you will see below the list is quite different from the previous ones (and far more so than that between the two previous lists).

There are several possible reasons, including:
– A different userbase.
– The existance of dedicated threads, which could provide passive encouragement to others to share their wishes.
– The fact that it is a forum thread rather than a tweet, which obviously enables people to go into more detail about series that they like or to list out more series at once.
– The fact that the staff actually reply to such threads, and the contents of these replies, could influence what people suggest.
– J-Novel Club’s existing agreements with Hobby Japan and Overlap mean that their titles are more likely to be suggested, and may have made people less willing to suggest titles from other labels.

Series that were already licensed by someone (whether J-Novel Club or another distributor) were ignored, as before, but the fact that this list covers back to right at the start of the site’s existance means that there are inevitably series listed that have since been licensed. These series have still been included but are marked by an asterisk (*). As this was previously used for series that would be licensed rescues, these are now indicated with a caret (^) instead.

Here (after the break if you’re reading this from the main page) is the list of titles requested and the number of requests for each:

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.

An attempt at ranking English language sales of light novel series

Note that the word “attempt” is an important one here.

As you probably already know if you are reading this, every week I post the weekly releases of light novels both in English and in Japanese on this blog. What you may or may not know is that the order of novels in the post is ranked. The ranking priority goes date -> label ordered by top ranking of that label -> order within that label. For the Japanese releases I use the order on Amazon, which isn’t always quite the same as the sales rankings but is far quicker to do. For the English releases I use Book Depository.
Why do I use them when I don’t tend to even buy my stuff from them? Simple – they are the only retailer that meets all five of the basic requirements:
– They have a ranking that covers every book on the site and which is continuously updated.
– They sell all light novels that get physical English language releases.
– They are a relatively large retailer.
– They sell worldwide, and don’t focus on a specific country or region.
– Sales are not skewed by the actions of the retailer (eg. Amazon’s history of hiding light novels under their manga adaptations)

This data is usually collected on a Sunday (occasionally Monday morning instead), and with the vast majority of English language releases coming out on a Tuesday this means that the rankings are for 2 days before release, and thus give you relatively comparable figures.

However, I only started actually taking long-term note of the actual rankings in the middle of the year, so I can’t give you every volume or the volume 1s of each series or something. What I can do, however, is to give a list of the latest volumes of each series, including the upcoming week’s releases.

Bear in mind that a couple of weeks I lost the actual figures for. However, in all bar one of these cases (Tokyo Ghoul : Days being the exception) I am confident of the site rank to the nearest thousand, and in no cases is the below out by more than one rank*.

So, from best rank to worst, here’s the list:

  1. My Youth Romantic Comedy is Wrong as I Expected 1
  2. Bakemonogatari part 1
  3. Re:Zero -Starting Life in Another World- 2
  4. Sword Art Online Progressive 004
  5. Overlord 2: The Dark Warrior
  6. Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? 7
  7. No Game No Life 5
  8. Sword Art Online 9: Alicization Beginning
  9. Tokyo Ghoul : Days
  10. The Rising of the Shield Hero 6
  11. Goblin Slayer 1
  12. The Devil is a Part-Timer 6
  13. The Irregular at Magic High School 3: Nine School Competition Arc 1
  14. Seraph of the End: Guren Ichinose: Catastrope at Sixteen 3
  15. Psycome 2 : Murder Princess and the Summer Death Camp
  16. Durarara! 5
  17. Log Horizon 6: Lost Child of the Dawn
  18. The Isolator 3: The Trancer
  19. Is it Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? On the Side: Sword Oratoria Vol. 1
  20. Legend of the Galactic Heroes : Endurance
  21. Accel World 08: The Binary Stars of Destiny
  22. Strike the Blood 4: Labyrinth of the Blue Witch
  23. Naruto: Itachi’s Story 2
  24. A Certain Magical Index 9
  25. Baccano! 3: 1931 the Grand Punk Railroad: Express
  26. Kagerou Daze V: The Deceiving
  27. Black Bullet 5: Rentaro Satomi, Fugitive
  28. The Asterisk War 02: Awakening of Silver Beauty
  29. Vampire Hunter D : Throng of Heretics (volume 24)

Excluded:
Spice and Wolf – too long since the last volume
Haruhi – series is on long term hiatus rather than ongoing and English releases are caught up, too long since the last volume.
Naruto Hiden – too long since the last volume, unclear if the latter half are actually going to be released.
Everything with no physical release (which I don’t post on this blog either).

Drawbacks to bear in mind:
These are ordered by RANKING, not sales. The same rank will to a certain extent be inevitably be a different sales figure at different times of year. In particular I would expect series released this week to get a lower rank than they would usually at a given sales level. Then again the timing may lead to them getting more sales as well.
The rankings are those of the latest volumes. New series will always do better than ones that have been going for a long time, which is why I included the volume number/name in the list.
As stated above, a couple of the series that haven’t seen releases in a while were done from memory but I can guarantee that nothing is out by more than one rank on the list above.
This being done from bookdepository’s rankings mean that no other retailer’s sales are relevant. This is thus a relatively small sample size, and Book Depository is probably not representative of the overall market.

* The uncertainties are between Tokyo Ghoul : Days and Sword Art Online, and between Strike the Blood and Accel World. In the former case I am about 55% confident that SAO is higher, and in the latter case, the penultimate volume of Accel World came out on the same day as the latest Strike the Blood volume, and got a better rank than it, which is why I put it higher.

Bookwalker.jp 2016 yearly rankings (light novels)

These rankings are series rankings, not volume rankings. The overall rankings list (the top one) has gaps as things that are not light novels (mostly manga) have been left out. This treatment has not been applied to the literature rankings, so there are a couple of non-light novels on there.

These rankings cover bookwalker ONLY but this is a major source of light novel sales, so is worth including despite being limited to a single site.

Data covers 16th November 2015 to 15th November 2016.
