Huh. I thought Ero Manga Sensei would be selling a lot more, considering the author (he's still popular, regardless if one liked Oreimo's ending or not) and that it was voted one of the series people would like to see as an anime more.

Then again, there were only 2 volumes released in 2014, both pretty far away from each other.

But yeah. Sasuga Onii-sama, and also happy to see that SNAFU (or however you can abreviate it) is still doing great.

I be all like checking the Sales Chart, when suddenly
sales table wrote:
603,511 Haikyu!! Shueisha
Original Story: Haruichi Furudate/ Writer: Kiyoko Hoshi

I knew that most popular anime and manga series get a one or two LNs, usually as a pre-/midquel, but for such adaptation of be placed that high on the list. It even outsold

'Technically' yes. KADOKAWA absorbed its Media Factory subsidiary (and 8 other subsidiaries) and dissolved it in October 2013:

Those 344,771 numbers sold are the 'old' books (published by Media Factory), and those 594,667 numbers sold are new prints (under KADOKAWA). We could just add these numbers and say NGNL sold 939,438 copies in 2014 (making it rank #4 in the list).

So, we'll probably see NGNLII sometime in late 2015/ early 2016 then.

Reki Kawahara has 3 novels on the list.
why Kagerou Daze LN is so popular, but not the anime?
