Thread updated for w/c 3rd April

Kimi no Na wa. reranks, gaining 11.2k sales, and getting it back to 3rd for the year. All time rankings will be updated with monthly data.

Biblia 7 narrowly overtakes SAO 19's figure for last week, but the latter ranks again, thus holding on to the top spot for the year for a bit longer. SAO 19 goes from 65th to 63rd all time, while Biblia 7 goes from 70th to 66th

Volume 8 of Rokudenashi Majutsu Koushi to Akashic Records becomes the first volume of the series to hit 30k on the weekly rankings, but has its thunder stolen somewhat by the fact that volumes 1 and 2 of the series rerank. Volume 1 gets the series to 60th on the redux rankings.

Re:Zero 12 and Hirune-hime both pass the 50k mark.


Thread updated for month March 2017

Kimi no Na wa. is now on a total sales of 1802804 - over 1.8 million.

From the series rankings, Ookami to Youhishi 1 gained 1897 sales during the month. This takes it from 170th to 164th on the redux list.

DanMachi Familia Chronicle goes from 121st to 113th on the redux list.

Various other rank changes of no particular note on the overall rankings.


Thread updated for w/c 10th April:

Biblia 7 takes the top spot for the year as SAO doesn't rank. SAO may still be slightly ahead in actual sales right now but that will change next week if it hasn't already. This pushes it from 66th to 59th all time.

Eromanga Sensei 1 reranks, gaining it 83k reported sales, making this the bestselling volume of the series once more, pushing it past the 50k and 100k marks, and pushing the series from 106th to 47th on the redux rankings.
Eromanga Sensei 2 also reranks, gaining an extra 47k reported sales and passing the 50k mark.

Akashic Records 1 gains another 8.3k sales, pushing the series from 60th to 59th on the redux rankings. Volume 2 also reranks again, and 3 and 4 both rerank for the first time.

Thread updated

I fixed Guin Saga's entry on the redux list to have the correct volume's figures represented.

Eromanga-sensei goes to 39th on the redux rankings

edit: changes made to the spreadsheet since the last update, which will be included in the thread next update:
- High School DxD standardised as 3 words rather than a mixture of 2 and 3. This will require updating ALL the yearly lists
- Added more dates to the all time rankings

The changes mentioned in the above post are now included in the thread.





Thread updated for the rankings for first half 2017.

Shousetsu Kimi no Na wa. gains 26.9k sales across its two versions. Both will rank again at year end, which will give us the final figure for the release. It'll fall short of 1.9m, though.

Kimi no Na wa. Another Side: Earthbound gains 24.3k sales, going from 41st to 35th all time.

Biblia Koshodou no Jiken Techou 7 gains 5.3k sales, going from 56th to 54th all time. The end year data will get it comfortably into the top 50, but chances are it will stay a very long way below all the other volumes of the series, which are currently in the top 20.

Sword Art Online 19 gains 16.5k sales, going from 64th to 57th all time. Pretty much flat on volumes 16 and 18 volafter effectively the same amount of time.

Re:Zero vol 1 gains 60.1k sales, after making it into the half year rankings without having ranked once during the period. This takes the volume over 200k sales, taking it from 138th to 78th all time. This moves the series from 31st to 23rd on the redux rankings.

Mahouka volume 21 gains 14.2k sales, going from 192nd to 161st all time. It overtakes volume 20 in sales figure, but with a month extra data it's still down on that volume in practice.

Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! Vol.10 gains a whopping 56.9k sales, passing 100k in the process, going from 407th to 233rd all time.

Musubimonogatari gains 11k sales, going from 289th to 262nd all time.

Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu Vol.10 gains 29.6k sales, passing the 100k mark and going from 377th to 289th all time. However the data is now missing w/c 14th November 2017. With volume 8 on sub-60k sales this shows just how much of a boost the series has been getting even since the anime ended.

Re:zero 11 gains 20.6k sales, passing 100k and going from 422nd to 334th all time.

No Game No Life may have not had any new volumes out itself, but Practical War Game adds 26.4k to its sales figure, including getting data from the LE for the first time thanks to the series rankings, and goes from 502nd to 358th all time.

The latest volume in the Moribito series, Honooro wo Ikumono, gains 21.6k sales, going from 471st to 360th all time.

Accel World 21 gains 15k sales, going from 453rd to 376th all time.

Zutto Mae kara Suki deshita. gets on the half yearly rankings despite not having ranked since the yearly rankings, gaining 28.6k sales to go from 558th to 383rd all time

Kotenbu series volume 6 (Ima Sara Tsubasa to Iwaretemo) gains 19k sales, going from 513th to 411th all time.

Tokyo Ghoul:re [quest] gains 14.6k sales, going from 516th to 429th all time.

Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu Vol.12 gains 4k sales, going from 457th to 432nd all time.

Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! Spin-off: Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Bakuen wo! Vol.4 gains 25.5k sales, going from 722nd to 483rd all time (and just 1 sale higher than the place below), becoming the volume with by far the highest sales of the spin-off volumes.

Shinrei Tantei Yakumo: Another Files 4 gains 15k sales, going from 622nd to 502nd all time.

The Kadokawa Tsubasa Bunko version of Hirune Hime ~Shiranai Watashi no Monogatari~ is on the rankings, gaining 13.2k sales. This actually puts it above the Kadokawa Bunko version, but this is only because it had a lower threshold - the Kadokawa Bunko version will have sold more. This takes it from 644th to 530th all time.

Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken 9 gains 14.8k sales, passing 50k and reclaiming the series' top seller spot (and thus destroying the nice little thing going on where every single volume was higher than the one before), going from 104th to 87th on the redux ranking, as well as from 730th to 571st for volumes.

Kimi wa Tsukiyo ni Hikari Kagayaku gains 5.8k sales, going from 621st to 577th.

Fate/strange fake 4 gains just 2.8k sales, going from 596th to JOINT 578th, but this does make it the best selling volume of the series, taking the series from 91st to 88th on the redux rankings.

BLEACH WE DO knot ALWAYS LOVE YOU gains 17.3k sales, passing 50k sales and going from 779th to 581st all time.

Owari no Seraph: Ichinose Guren, 16-sai no Hametsu Vol.7 gains 11.9k sales, passing the 50k sales mark and going from 715th to 585th all time.

Date A Live Vol.16 gains 7.6k sales, passing the 50k mark and going from 674th to 603rd all time.

Hidan no Aria Vol.24 gains 9.7k sales, passing the 50k mark and going from 723rd to 613th all time.

Strike the Blood Vol.16 gains 6.6k sales, passing the 50k mark and going from 680th to 615th all time.

Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka: Familia Chronicle Episode Ryu gains 7k sales, passing the 50k mark and going from 688th to 620th all time. This also takes it from 114th to 97th on the redux list.

Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken 10 gained 2.4k sales in the 2 weeks it was off the rankings, taking it from 638th to 621st all time.

Eromanga-sensei Vol.8 gets on the all time rankings for the first time (it only sold 28.6k before dropping out the rankings back in January) with 54.5k sales

Boku no Hero Academia: Yuuei Hakusho Vol.2 also passes the 30k mark for the first time, with 40k sales

Tantei Team KZ Jiken Note gets on the 30k+ list for the first time as well, with 2 different volumes.

Suki ni Naru Sono Shunkan wo. also gets on the all time list for the first time.

Also added a few more dates as I went through.

Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu Vol.13 passes 50k

Knight's & Magic vols 1-3 pass 30k for the first time, with volume 1 taking the place on the redux ranking off volume 4, which had previously been the only volume of the series with reported sales over 30k. This takes the series from 182nd to 113th on the redux rankings.

Thread updated for w/c 10th July 2017:

Mahouka 22 takes 194th all time.

Knight's & Magic 1 becomes the first volume of the series to hit 50k sales, taking the series from 113rd to 104th on the redux list. Vols 2 and 3 rank again as well.

Isekai Shokudou 4 passes volume 3, which would be enough to get it to the status of the series' top seller... if it weren't for the fact that volume 1 reranked with almost double its sales. This takes it from 164th to 74th on the redux rankings.

Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou Shugi no Kyoushitsu e reranks, getting on the all time list for the first time, as the first volume of the series on there. This puts it in 87th on the redux list.

Thread updated for w/c 17th July.

I've added Uchiage Hanabi, Shita kara Miru ka? Yoko kara Miru ka? to the rankings.

Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou Shugi no Kyoushitsu e vols 2-4 rerank from anime boost for the first time. Meanwhile volume 1 takes the series from 87th to 80th on the redux rankings.

Kokoro ga Sakebitagatterunda reranks for the first time since 2015, adding 48.4k to its total figure and passing the 100k sales mark in the process.

No Game No Life 6 also reranks, this time for the first time since the yearlies of 2014, gaining 82.6k sales, going from 188th to 79th all time and becoming the bestselling volume in the series. This also takes the series from 31st to 24th on the redux rankings.


Thread updated for w/c 24th July 2017:

Uchiage Hanabi passes the 50k sales mark, as does Shinobumonogatari.

The 2 YouJitsu volumes that came out this year reranked for the first time, pushing both above the 30k mark. Meanwhile volume 3 passed 50k and volume 1 pushed the series to 73rd on the redux list.

KonoSuba's new volume just barely squeezes past 30k on its first proper week.

Kimi wa Tsukiyo ni Hikari Kagayaku has dropped out the rankings again, just a smidgeon over a thousand away from 100k sales.


Thread updated for w/c 31st July 2017:

Kimi wa Tsukiyo ni Hikari Kagayaku reranks, now above 100k sales.

Kimi no Na wa. reranks for the first time since April, gaining 43.4k sales. This gains it 28.6k on the all time sales since the half year rankings.

YouJitsu takes 67th on the redux rankings.


Thread updated for month July 2017:

Isekai Shokudou 4 gains 8.5k sales, going from 849th to 713th all time.

Re:Zero 13 gains 5.8k sales, going from 540th to 498th all time.


Thread updated for w/c 7th August 2017:

With 2 versions now on the rankings, Uchiage Hanabi...'s sales shoots upwards, passing the 100k mark.

KonoSuba 12 gains about 12k sales, but sees its total sales beaten by the week 1 sales of Mahouka 23 by 12 copies, thus preventing it actually gaining any ranks on the yearly rankings.

YouJitsu sees all 6 volumes rank, with volume 5 passing 50k sales this week and the series as a whole going from 67th to 62nd on the redux list.

Kimi no Na Wa. ranks again.


Thread updated for w/c 14th August 2017:

Mahouka 23 passes 100k

Youjitsu 4.5 reranks for the first time, having passed 50k this week, thus getting on the all time rankings for the first time. Volume 1 takes the series from 62nd on the redux list to 60th.


Thread updated for w/c 21st August 2017:

Uchiage Hanabi... goes from 230th to 166th all time. It's looking well on course to being the top selling volume of the year as well.

KonoSuba 12 narrowly passes the 100k mark.

YouJitsu sees all 6 of the main volumes rank again (but not 4.5 this time), and goes from 60th to 58th on the redux rankings.

Kimi no Na wa. drops back off the rankings.


Thread updated for w/c 28th August:

Uchiage Hanabi... slows down a fair bit. Suddenly top place for the year looks like a stretch, just 1 week after I said it was well on course for it. It still goes from 167th to 136th all time.

YouJitsu vol 1 passes 100k, however vols 2, 5 and 6 drop off the rankings.


Thread updated for month August 2017:

Kimi no Na wa. adds another 4k sales.

KonoSuba 12 gains 3.1k sales, going from 344th to 335th all time.

Bleach: Can't Fear Your Own World 1 passes 30k for the first time.

I haven't updated YouJitsu as I know they all rerank next week.


Thread updated for w/c 4th September:

And now Uchiage Hanabi... barely gets past the 200k mark. It's the 4th thing this year to get this but it could be out of the rankings in a week or two. It does climb from 136th to 122nd all time.

As stated above, all YouJitsu volumes rerank. Volume 1 overtakes RokuAka volume 1 for 56th place on the redux list.

Kamisama no Goyounin 7 passes 50k sales.


Thread updated for w/c 11th September:

SAO 20 passes 100k sales.

All YouJitsu volumes drop off the rankings.

Uchiage Hanabi takes 3rd spot for the year from the weekly sales rankings data, and 107th all time.

If it is its last week on the rankings (which is likely) then Mahouka 23 has a .077% sales drop on the last volume at the time that left the weekly rankings, whih in turn was .076% down on the previous volume. About as close to flatlining as you'll ever see.

The RE of KonoSuba 12 reranks, gaining it 6.6k sales


Thread updated for w/c 18th September:

OreGairu 12 passes 100k in week 1

SAO 20 passes 150k in week 3

Uchiage Hanabi gets up to 94th on the all time rankings.


Thread updated for w/c 25th September:

Overlord 12 narrowly misses repeating OreGairu 12's feat of a 100k week 1. OreGairu 12 narrowly misses out on a 150k week 2, and Re:Zero narrowly misses out on a 50k week 2.

SAO 20 goes from 164th to 137th all time.

Both volumes of Uchiage Hanabi have dropped off the rankings, as has KonoSuba 12 (again).

Meanwhile YouJitsu vols 1, 4 and 5 rerank. Volume 1 takes the series from 56th to 53rd on the redux ranks.


Thread updated for w/c 2nd October:

It's SAO's turn to narrowly miss out this time, being just a hundred or so sales below 200k. It does go from 137th to 126th all time, though. Meanwhile the three near misses from last time all pass their thresholds. OreGairu 12 goes from 218th to 189th all time

Knight's & Magic 8 becomes the first volume since volume 4 back in 2014 to pass 30k reported sales.



also removed a duplicate of KonoSuba 9 from the 2016 list and added various links on the all time best sellers list.

Monthly data for Sept 2017 will be added with the next update.
