Data has finally been re-added for yearly sales rankings for 2011. If anyone knows somewhere that lists the bestselling volumes for the first half of 2011 beyond just the top 10, please let me know. Otherwise I will assume that this data is either missing or never existed.

This week's data will be added with next week's.

Updated data with 2014 yearly rankings. For the sake of relative convenience I have assumed that the data reset for No Game No Life took place at or after 18th November 2013. Looking at the figures this seems a reasonable assumption to make.

edit: there's more to add tomorrow.

I've added the last 3 weeks of data to the year's rankings, but not yet added them to the all time ranks.

Updated both sets of data up to 7th December, including November monthly rankings for the all time figures. Yes, I know there's another week of data since then.

I also managed to find the yearly sales rankings for 2010 light novel volumes at last. It was in a post on an inactive blog. However, it only covers the top 10 so if you know of any sources with more data then please let me know.

It's quite spectacular just how much of an anime boost Durarara got, that sales of a volume that came out in 2004 were able to not only be higher in 2010 (the year in which the anime aired) than over the period from release in 04 to over halfway through 2010 but was actually able to take 1st 2nd and 3rd bestselling volumes of the year, purely through anime sales boost. Oh and 5th as well. The highest new volume of the series came in 10th.
