Hidan no Aria 17 is the biggest selling new volume this week, with 46349 sales in 5 days. Volume 15 is the most recent comparable volume, with 46852 sales in the same number of days. Nice and consistant there, although that was after a drop from previous volumes.

Infinite Stratos 9 sold 45631. Volume 8 sold more than 83k in the same number of days. That's a drop of 45%. Volume 8's final sales were 45% lower than volume 7's as well.

On the other hand, No Game No Life's sales of 36257 is a 172% increase on volume 5. It is from 5 days rather than 3, but that's kind of irrelevant when talking about that sort of size growth. That is one huge anime boost.

OreGairu volume 9 becomes the fourth volume from the series with >100k sales, the third highest in ranking (having overtaken vol 8), the second to do so before dropping out the rankings (after vol 8), and the first to get there on week 2.

Sword Art Online 14 adds 27827 sales to 254338.

Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance vol 13 sells 27340 in 5 days. Volume 11 sold 32929 in the same number.

HenNeko vol 8 sells 22813 in 5 days. Volume 7 sold 25348 in 4. It seems the anime boost is wearing off.

Youkai Apartment no Yuuga na Nichijou 10 sells 20324 to total 60635.

Tokyo ravens 11 adds 16.8k to total 33.4k after 9 days, slightly more than 10k over vol 10's sales after the same number of days.

Seikoku no Dragonar 15 sells 16768 in 5 days. The last comparable volume is 13 which actually sold 18334 in the same number of days. However, anime boosts for series this long usually don't kick in straight away - look at Tokyo Ravens, with its boost coming in volume 11 rather than volume 10 - and this series is considerably longer than that one, meaning you would expect the boost to come later.

Kagerou Days 5 adds 16268 to 293292. It's passed the sales of volume 4 at the end of last (calendar) year, doing in one month what that took four to achieve.

Oda Nobuna no Yabou 11 adds 16197 to 30.6k sales after 9 days. I'm not sure how comparable this volume is to previous ones, with the last volume having sold 43.7k in as many days - this one is a lot less front-loaded though.

Hachinantte, Sore wa nai deshou! sells 13310 in 5 days. First volume.

Mahouka 13 adds 13k to just over 142k. Just 3k away from the top spot of volumes for the series that have not reranked as a result of the anime - the current record holder for this being volume 8. If it ranks next week, it'll take that spot. Either way, it's overtaken Index NT volume 9 for 7th bestselling volume of the year so far.

No Game No Life vol 1 adds 11893 to 40539 sales this year to date. Will it get to 50k sales this year when next week's rankings come out?

No Game No Life vol 2 sells 11207 to 34030 total this year. This is a bit anime boost.

Magika no Kenshi to Vasreus vol 5 becomes the last of 7 MF Bunko volumes to sell >10k in their first week, with 10918 sales in 5 days. Volume 4 sold 10973 in the same number of days so nice and steady sales there.

No Game No Life vol 3 becomes the last of the volumes selling >10k this week, with 10075 sales. It's now on 28302 sales this year.

Gate Self-defence Forces Kare no Jinite, Kaku Tatakaeri Gaiden vol 3 adds 9670 to 21007 sales.

Owarimonogatari pt 3 adds 9421 to 158960 sales. Just 3k or so below the reported sales of part 2 now.

Manga de Wakaru Nanatsu no Shuukan has been removed from the list.

No Game No Life vol 5 gains 8669 sales to 17689 this year, or a little over 60k in total.

No Game No Life vol 4 gains 8622 sales to 17723 this year.

Kagerou Days vol 1 adds 8474 sales to 90048 year to date. It needs 24k more to enter the top 10 on the all time list.

Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata 6 sells 16795 total after 9 days. Volume 4 (the last comparable one) sold 16540 in the same number.

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei vol 1 adds 7535 to 264909 total, or 36847 this year.

Mahouka vol 2 adds 7503 to 232310 total, or 28150 this year. It seems Mahouka's boost to the early volumes is waning.
