I never really checked what it is about, but it's by Hiro Arikawa (the author of Toshokan Sensou/Library Wars) and all his works tend to sell really well (and it's not even the original release, it's a rerelease in Bunko format (15x10 cm), the original was released in 2010 in Tankoubon format (18.2x12.8 cm)).

Sad to see Haganai get such a low 3rd week - I was thinking it would be a good 5k or so higher than that. Unless it randomly reranks at some point, there's no way we'll see sales of 200k (except perhaps from the year end list) for that volume now. It might not even beat Connect.

Kagerou Days 4 has pushed volumes 1 and 3 back into the rankings again, giving them (especially volume 1) a rather nice boost to their recorded sales figures. If volume 3 ranks again next week it will probably overtake the recorded sales of volume 2.

I tweeted Pan Tachibana a picture of Dakara Boku Wa 11 beside Masochistic Ecstasy 1 which made him happy but unfortunately it seems like all his Dakara fans didn't follow him over to Overlap Bunko with his new series. Hopefully they find it eventually and will get back to ranking.

Overlap Bunko's edition of Infinite Stratos has put them on the map anyway.

Connect was only at 132k on its 3rd week (although the 3rd week sales at 19k, so slightly higher than here) and at 165k in the half-yearly list. I really doubt vol. 9 won't be able to beat it, it should still be ranking next week for 9k-10k and maybe the week after. But yeah, there's a clear drop in sales compared to vol. 8 which was at 180k on its third week.

Well, Dakara already had trouble ranking, so it's not really surprising that his new series is unable to do that as well. Furthermore we still haven't seen in the rankings any series published by Overlap that's not named IS, not even Death Need Round which I believe is their best-selling series after IS (based on its rankings on Amazon and the posts on Overlap's blog). Overlap is still a relatively new and small publisher and those tend to not have their novels get in the rankings unless they are a huge hit.

I was meaning that it might not overtake the total sales of connect before it disappeared from the weekly rankings. I know that's rather meaningless as a comparison, but it is a benchmark which I had thought it would pass easily.
