"KonoSuba" Becomes Top-Selling Series in Digital Store Book Walker's Ranking of 2017

Ryoko Kui's "Delicious in Dungeon" dominates the manga sales chart

Book Walker, one of the largest digital bookstores in Japan, today announced its sales ranking of 2017 for 12 categories, based on the sales figures from November 15, 2016, to October 31, 2017. The store now has over 400,000 digital titles (100,000 up from last year's 300,000) from major Japanese publishers, including Kadokawa, Kodansha, Shueisha, and Shogakukan.  

 

Instead of the previous two years' champion, Fujino Omori's Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?, Natsume Akatsuki's KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on this Wonderful World! became the top-selling series in the overall sales ranking. The increase of sales was mainly thanks to the well-received TV anime second season aired in January to March of this year. Meanwhile, the best selling manga was Ryoko Kui's Delicious in Dungeon ranked 3rd in the overall ranking (1st in the male manga), jumping from the last year's 10th. The crown for the most popular female manga was taken by Yuki Suetsugu's Chihayafuru for three consecutive years.
