Thread updated with this week's sales figures.

Kimi no Na wa. narrowly reclaims top spot for the year despite its significant sales drop off. It also hits 1.7m sales.

Youjo Senki goes from 72nd to 64th on the redux list.

Also shifted the rankings lists for past years around a bit.

edit: added Youjo Senki to all time list as it passed 30k

Thread updated for w/c 30th January

We finally get our first 2 things over 100k for the year to date, but there's still nothing else on 50k yet.

One of these 100k series is Musubimonogatari, which passes the 100k total sales mark.

Youjo Senki 1 gains another 10k sales, pushing the series from 64th to 57th on the redux rankings.

Youjo Senki volume 2 passes the 50k mark overall.

Re:Zero 11 reranks, gaining 10.1k sales, pushing it from 560th to 487th all time.

Thread updated for w/c 6th February.

Kimi no Na wa. has another big drop, and the Tsubasa Bunko edition is gone from the ranking. It probably won't hit 1.8m until the half-year rankings now.

Youjo Senki volume 1 pushes the series from 57th to 54th on the redux list.

Youjo Senki 4 reranks for the first time, already above 30k. With that and SAO/Mahouka, we get 3 new volumes on the all time rankings this time around, one over 100k, one between 50k and 100k, and one less than 50k.

Thread updated for this week's sales figures.

SAO takes top spot for this year to date.

Mahouka 21 and Youjo Senki 1 cross the 100k threshold. The latter gains just enough to clinch 53rd on the redux rankings.

The total sales of >10k sellers for the year to date finally passes 1 million. A sales level which is normally reached in a typical month.

Added a few more links and a few more dates for the first time in a while.

Thread updated with this week's figures.

Biblia's first week pushes it straight above the 50k mark as you'd expect. With only a couple of days of sales its not easy to tell how well it's doing yet, but with a gap of around a year and a half since the previous volume could this see a big sales drop? Or is it destined to be the year's biggest seller just like the last 3 volumes were?

SAO 19, the top seller of the year so far, passes 200k and reaches 111th on the all time rankings from 155th, but that's not the notable factor for that series this week. Instead it is the fact that volume 1 managed to rerank. It's sales this week were just 3.7k, but the >2 years off the ranking means that the volume gains a whopping 185k sales, going from 12th to 6th on the all time rankings. It also claims 4th on the redux rankings.

And the top seller of last year, Kimi no Na wa., gains another 6k sales. Another 10% drop, though a better performance than the film is getting, once again raises the question of how much higher it will go. 1750k from the weekly rankings now seems more or less assured, but it's not looking like going much further than that before the half yearly figures come out.

The final volume of Zero no Tsukaima came out this week. Only a couple of days of sales here as well, so it's pretty much guaranteed to get onto the all time rankings list next week.

Youjo Senki's boost unsurprisingly dropped away with just a recap episode in the week in question (although it still went from 53rd to 52nd on the redux ranking. Is that all it is, though, or is the series' sales boost basically over?

Thread updated for this week's sales figures

Sword Art Online 19 goes from 111th to 86th all time.

Youjo Senki's boost seems to be pretty much over. However the first volume still ranked this week, and got the series from 52nd to 50th on the redux list.

Biblia volume 7 passes 100k and 150k together, reaching 196th all time.

Shinrei Tantei Yakumo: Another Files 4 and Zero no Tsukaima's 22nd and final volume both pass the 30k mark.

Thread also updated for monthly sales for February 2017

Youjo Senki 2 gains 3k sales, going from 485th to 467th all time.

Musubimonogatari gains 5.1k sales, going from 301st to 287th all time.

Youjo Senki 3 gains 4.9k sales, passing the 50k mark, and going from 683rd to 628th all time.

Re:Zero 11 gains 8.6k sales, going from 463rd to 416th all time.

KonoSuba vol 1 ranks with 12.2k sales. Data is missing since the year end ranking for last year. This gets it from 200th to 171st all time. It also boosts its redux rank, but it doesn't overtake anything.

Thread updated for this week's sales figures.

Sword Art Online volume 1 reranks again, gaining it 8.8k sales. Incidentally, this is now the second highest "days ranked" figure, although it will need to rerank again sometime from the middle of next year to take the top spot.

Sword Art Online 19 also ranked, going from 86th to 76th all time.

KonoSuba becomes one of only a handful of volumes to rerank from a sales boost given by a second season of anime. It's worth mentioning that the series was previously missing all data from before November 2015, as well as data for the end of November and December/January 2016/17, but the 65.2k increase in its sales figure is still pretty impressive. As a result of this it passes 200k sales, goes from 170th to 83rd all time and from 35th to 23rd on the redux list.

Biblia 7 goes from 197th to 123rd all time.

Mahouka volume 21 passes 150k sales. With just 2k fewer sales than the last volume over 4 fewer days it looks to be holding up relatively well, unlike the big drop it saw last time.

Youjo Senki volume 1 ranks again, getting the series up from 50th to 49th on the redux list (overtaking Date A Live)
