Japanese publisher Kadokawa Shoten has revealed that weekly sales of Tarō Tatsunoko and Amanoyū's Mondaiji tachi ga Isekai kara Kuru soudesuyo? (Problem children are coming from another world, aren't they?) light novel series have increased four-fold since the anime adaptation premiered in Japan this month. According to the publisher, sales in the first week of the show's airing more than doubled the previous week's sales. In the following week, the series had more than quadrupled the sales volume it had in the week before the anime began airing. The fourth episode of the anime will premiere in Japan on Friday.
The first six volumes now have 850,000 copies in circulation, and Kadokawa Shoten has ordered more printings.
