Top 10 Light Novels in Japan for the week of October 8-14, 2018


Here are the Top 10 Light Novels in Japan for the week of October 8-14, 2018.
So, there’s a little weirdness with the list this week. I read the results exactly as they were posted on MyAnimeList, but you’ll notice the sales #s for #7 are higher than #6. Also, they stated it was 86 Volume 9, when it was actually Volume 5. Apparently, I’ll need to be more eagle eyed from now on…
