Just thought I'd point out that for 8, it's actually 'Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai' not 'Kami no Mizo Shiru Sekai' Razz

That volume actually proudly sits on my shelf too.

Thrilled to see Chihayafuru ranking so high. Again, I'm hopin' and wishin' for its manga to be licensed, and for it to see a second season for its anime.

My thoughts exactly. ^^
Nice to see Princess Jellyfish ranking so high too. I can always keep on hoping for these manga licenses...

Why wait for a license? Kodansha has released bilingual versions of Chihayafuru. My order for the first two volumes just shipped today for a little over $40 with shipping. Now I have to wait 1-3 weeks for it to arrive...

As for a 2nd season:

The previous volume (#15) sold 192,448 in the first week, making this about a 10% increase in first week sales. Volume #14 sold 171,785, so #15 had about a 12% increase from #14, and from #14 to #16 it is almost a 24% increase in first week sales. From what I have heard, one of the main reasons for the anime was to increase sales of the manga. This type of increase, and a #1 ranking for the week, really argues that it worked, which could lead to a second season of the anime! I hope?
