Thread updated for monthly figures for September 2017:
Mahouka 23 gains 6k sales, going from 199th to 182nd all time.
KonoSuba 12 gains 4k sales, going from 308th to 296th all time.

I've not updated Uchiage Hanabi...'s figures as they seem inconsistent between the rankings, so I'm just leaving it with the totals for weekly figures.

Overlord 12 goins from 191st to 183rd all time


Thread updated for Month October 2017:

SAO 20 gains 4.3k sales, going from 101st to 96th all time. And Sword Art Online's dominance of the top 100 all time grows even stronger.

OreGairu 12 gains 3.5k sales, going from 153rd to 148th all time.

Re:Zero 14 gains 8.4k sales.

Kino no Tabi 21 gains 3.8k sales.

Shinyaku Index 19 gains 3.7k sales

Knight's & Magic 8 gains 4k sales

Kokuhaku Yokou Renshuu: Heart no Shuchuu gains 7.3k sales


Thread updated for w/c 6th November:

SAO 20 reranks thanks to relatively low thresholds, enabling it to take 3rd place on the yearly rankings, and going from 96th to 94th all time.

Rather more bizarrely, Hyouka also reranks. Previously its sales figures were just for the year of 2012, and missing the previous data. This means that its calculable sales go up by a whopping 208k, taking it from 69th to 24th all time and from 20th to 6th on the redux rankings. This, incidentally, is the only change to the redux list in this update.


Thread updated for w/c 13th November:

Accel World 22 passes the 50k mark.

Thread updated to 31st December 2017 - both weekly and monthly data.
DeathMa gets on the redux list for the first time.
TenSura AGAIN sees its latest volume get higher sales on the weekly rankings than any previous volume - that's 7 consecutive increases. It's still a little below the top seller from the series at this stage due to the yearly rankings, though (spoiler: it overtakes that in the first week of January).
Also fixed a couple of errors (the wrong volume of Arslan was in the redux list, and a volume of KonoSuba was in the all time rankings twice.

From the weekly rankings only:
>200k sellers in:
2017 - 5
2016 - 4

>100k sellers in:
2017 - 16
2016 - 19

>50k sellers in:
2017 - 39
2016 - 57

>30k sellers in:
2017 - 78
2016 - 107

>20k sellers in:
2017 - 133
2016 - 158

>10k sellers in:
2017 - 265
2016 - 297

Total sales of >10k sellers in:
2017 - 8,964,684
2016 - 12,249,732
2016 excluding Kimi no Na wa. - 10,371,697

The drop (at least after factoring out Kimi no Na wa.) is probably largely down an increase in ebooks' share of the market, which Oricon doesn't report. As people start off series with the ebooks, the physical sales never really take off. Or that's my theory anyway.
The relative lack of huge anime boosts was likely also a factor - the top sales boost in 2017 was barely over half that of 2016's, and that ratio continues down the rankings.

On a somewhat unrelated note,

With the amount of ad spam this forum has seen in recent months, and the fact that said spam posts are being left untouched for months on end, I think it's time to move this thread somewhere else. At the time of writing I have yet to decide where, but the thread will be updated with a link to the new location when it is decided.

I would welcome any suggestions of good places to put it.
