Best selling Light Novels of 2014 - kuuderes_shadow - 11-08-2013

THIS THREAD IS NO LONGER BEING UPDATED. The current thread can be found here: http://forums.lndb.info/showthread.php?tid=26308

Final list for 2013 is here (sales of 50k or greater only).

The following is a list of all volumes that have sales of 30k+ recorded in the weekly oricon rankings for calendar 2014 (start date 30th December 2013). Volumes that were released before 2014 are in italics. For these volumes, only the sales that the lists show as having been during 2014 are counted. When there are multiple versions of a light novel that both rank, the total is what is listed below. All items that appear in the light novel rankings are valid for inclusion in this list, whether or not they are actually a light novel. This is the case for all lists on this thread.

On the second part of the post is a list of data stretching back to 2009. For more details see below.

NOTE: This is now the final list for 2014.

Items on the list with their names in italics were released in a previous year. For these releases, only those sales which can be confirmed from the weekly rankings as having taken place this year are counted towards the rankings on this list.



Part 2

As data towards the lower part of the rankings will be significantly affected by when in the week the series came out, the number of days between that volume's release and its last data is included in brackets at the end of the line. This cannot be done effectively for releases with multiple versions - which instead have the number of versions written in. This impacts the data in other ways, though, so it is worthwhile to include. NOTE: This has been removed to save space. This thread will be recreated at the start of next year and will include them again. I still have the data on the main spreadsheet.

RE: Best selling Light Novels of 2013 - Mecasonic13 - 11-08-2013

Could you use thousand delimiters (e.g. write 2,323,668 instead of 2323668), please? It makes the numbers easier to read.

For those weeks that you are not using for your data, is it because you don't have the weekly rankings for those weeks? I could try to find them if you want.

Also, your sales data for 2013 seem to be missing some data from the rankings for the first half of 2013.
For example, Hidan no Aria volume 14 was reported at 85,499 copies sold, the Natsume Yuujinchou novel at 96,211, High School DxD volume 14 at 67,775, Index NT volume 6 at 183,966, and Shin Seitokai no Ichizon volume 2 at 67,643.

For the thousand delimiters - sure.

The missing weeks are ones which I couldn't find easily. There were a few others originally but I found them by searching in different ways. There probably isn't much of importance on them - 2011 wasn't a very good year for light novel sales. edit: found a few more, although no new data from any of them. Just 5 missing weeks now.

The data for the first half of 2013 is included in the second list (including adding the tally to the highest figure we had for before that period started when this yields a higher sales figure than we otherwise have - most prominently with SAO volumes), but not the first. There are a few reasons for that. The main ones are that they cover a different time period, and that I want the first list to be just the data shown in the weekly rankings. I want to be able to compare the annual sales to the totals of weekly sales we see, not to just create something that becomes a duplicate of the annual sales list.

Yeah, the chance that there is new data during those few weeks is slim. Here are the rankings for 21st - 27th November 2011:

RE: Best selling Light Novels of 2013 - kuuderes_shadow - 12-08-2013

Thanks for that. New data for Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai vol 1 as well.


RE: Best selling Light Novels of 2013 - kuuderes_shadow - 24-08-2013

Updated with this week's figures. Quite a lot of new things joined the list in part 1 this week. It will be interesting to see where new volumes of maou-sama end up now the anime has given the series a huge boost.


RE: Best selling Light Novels of 2013 - kuuderes_shadow - 01-10-2013

Updated and bumping the thread above all the adbot spam.

RE: Best selling Light Novels of 2013 - kuuderes_shadow - 29-11-2013

I have added data from the following rankings:
weekly rankings:
Mar 16-22 2009
Apr 6-12 2009
Apr 20-Jul 26 2009
Aug 3-Sep 20 2009
Sep 28-Nov 22 2009
Yearly ranking 17 Nov 2008 - 22 Nov 2009

I will add in data for the missing period at a later date.

Notable info:
- Only 13 new volumes passed the 100k mark during the above data, and several of those needed the yearly rankings to do so - 26 have during the equivalent period this year even without the yearly rankings having come out yet.
- Nisemonogatari part 2 sold just 45k on release before dropping out the rankings.
- SAO vol 1 sold just 24k copies on release - not a bad figure for the first week of a new series but nothing on what the series now sells.
- Haganai volume 1 didn't even rank on release!


RE: Best selling Light Novels of 2013 - kuuderes_shadow - 02-12-2013

Updated to add yearly figures for 2013

Updating the figure for OreGairu vol 1 is not possible as I don't have any data for it ranking before May this year.
Figure for Biblia vol 2 is not updatable as the latest figure is higher than the annual figure for 2013 added to the previous ranked total (on 26th August)
Similar reasons prevent updating figures for all volumes of toshokan sensou, although in this case the previous ranked totals were from several years ago.

Date A Live makes its first appearance on the 100k+ list with volume 7.

Data is unavailable for:
kurobasu replace 1 & 2 1st Oct - 18th Nov 2012
kurobasu replace 3 22nd Oct-18th Nov 2012
biblia 3 8th Oct - 18th Nov 2012
