"Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?" Again Dominates Book Walker's Yearly Sales Ranking

Side story series "Sword Oratoria" also ranks 13th this year

Book Walker, one of the largest digital bookstores in Japan, today announced its sales ranking of 2016 for 12 categories based on the sales figures between November 16, 2015, and November 15, 2016. Now over 300,000 titles (70,000 up from last year's 230,000) from major Japanese publishers, including Kadokawa, Kodansha, Shueisha, and Shogakukan, are digitally available via the service.  

 

Last year's top-selling series, Fujino Omori's Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? once again dominated the overall sales ranking that included all genres. The light novel series has been published from SB Creative's GA Bunko since January 2013. It first ranked 33rd in 2014, then thanks to the TV anime adaptation produced by J.C.Staff, jumped up to No.1 last year. Its side story series Sword Oratoria by the same author also ranked 13th, and its upcoming TV anime adaptation to premiere in April 2017 will definitely push the sales more. Over 50 titles in the overall sales top 100 of this year were light novel series.
