Bookwalker.jp 2017 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.

Obviously this is the Japanese bookwalker, not the global one.

Unlike in previous years, there is no “male” or “female” rankings this year.

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.

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.

POS Monthly Bunsho rankings December 2016

Figures given in brackets are last month’s rankings.

The list below is the POS ranking for December. 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.
