Fixed the name of Ansatsu Kyoushitsu: Koro-tan on the yearly rankings for 2014 and 2015, and the all time rankings. As a result of it making it onto the books ranking for this week, it is also no longer missing 2 weeks of data in January. It sold 3903 copies during that period.
Changed Kagerou Days to Kagerou Daze on all ranking sets.
Rectified OreGairu 7's absence from the all time rankings which was due to a quirk in how I collected the 2013 data. I am fairly confident that no other volume was affected.

Updated with this week's data. Monthly rankings for March should be out soon.

Madan no Ou to Vanadis vol 11 is now the best selling volume in the series.
8 new series passed 30k sales this week. Pretty impressive.

Thread updated with Month March 2015 and Week commencing 6th April 2015.

With it reappearing on the weekly rankings, OreGairu volume 1 has become the bestselling volume from that series, and by some distance to boot.
DanMachi volume 1 becomes the bestseller from that series, appearing on the all time rankings for the first time along with volumes 2-4.
Mikagura Gakuen Kumikyoku 6 becomes the bestseller from its series as well.

Updated with this week's data.

The rankings on Oricon's website are no longer a useful data source, due to the bug that meant the wrong volumes were showing up there being fixed after about 6 months.

Further days ranked data has been added to the spreadsheet and will be included with the next update.

Thread updated with data from the sales rakings for first half 2015. This covers the top 50 light novels (plus various other odds and ends that aren't counted as light novels) for the first time - previously it was capped at top 30. This means we get rather more data than we have before, and quite a few series have taken advantage of these additional rankings.

Biblia vol 6 goes from 18th to 13th. Just a couple of hundred down on 12th, which it will easily overtake, enabling it to be just 1 rank lower on the all time rankings than the last volume, once the year end figures come out. Overtaking said volume is possible but not particularly likely.
SAO: Progressive 3 goes from 48th to 44th. It probably won't catch up with volume 1 or 2.
Mahouka 15 goes from 84th to 70th
Kagerou Daze 6 goes from 79th to 77th, but then it only gained 1 week of sales.
OreGairu 10 goes from 181st to 99th.

Kokuhaku Yokou-renshuu goes from 30th to 28th on the redux list.
Sword Art Online Gun Gale Online goes from 51st on the redux list to 38th.
Tenshitachi no Kadai Katsudou vol 5 becomes the bestselling volume of the series, taking the series from 78th to 75th on the redux list.
Mondaiji-tachi ga isekai kara kuru sou desu yo? Gunshin no shinro soudan desu! (the final volume of the series) becomes the bestselling volume of the series, taking the series from 89th to 80th on the redux list.
Turuku no Kaizoku volume 4 becomes the bestselling volume in the series, taking it from 92nd to 81st on the redux list.
Fate/Strange Fake goes from 112th to 83rd on the redux list
Volume 5 of Mikagura Gakuen Kumikyoku becomes the bestselling volume of the series, and takes the series from 119th to 84th on the redux list.
Imouto Sae Ireba Ii goes from 134th to 92nd on the redux list.
Madan no Ou to Vanadis goes from 102nd to 93rd on the redux list
Eromanga-sensei volume 4 becomes the bestselling volume of the series, and takes the series from 105th to 99th on the redux list.
Zettai Naru Isolator volume 2 becomes the bestselling volume of the series, and takes the series from 101st to 100th on the redux list
Tokyo Ravens 12 becomes the bestselling volume of the series, and takes it from 127th to 101st on the redux list.

New data for the following volumes were not included as the maximum total sales including the new data is less than the total known sales excluding it:
Yahari Ore no Seishun Love-come wa Machigatteiru 1
Tokyo Ghoul Hibi

The data has now been added to post 7 of the thread. I'm waiting until after the monthly data becomes available before adding this week's rankings.
