>>176764857>SAO still has on average higher per volume sales. It's Index's long length that helps it have the advantage with 40+ volumes
Speculation. The digital sales are not factored into this so we don't exactly know, but currently it does yes, but the more volumes doesn't really mean much when the peak it had didn't last forever. >Ever since SAO anime first came out, the novels have been selling much more than Index so it's quickly closing the gap.
Until they update and say it's more than 13M, it's not really going to convince me. >No it's strictly the LN series, and it's actually more than 20 million
ANN is not a source, much like how I doubt Index sold 30M on its own despite them specifying it, I'm not convinced SAO is solely including SAO, it's likely including the franchise as a whole world wide.>>176764854
This doesn't really address that there's no WW presence that you kept making to others by the way.
