Moshidora = Complete Domination

May 31, 2011 @ 21:51 CDT

For the first half of fiscal year 2011 (Dec 6th 2010 – May 30th 2011) Moshidora sold a ridiculous 962K – nearly a million copies of its light novels and over 700K more than number two on the list.

Moshidora put its management prowess to good work on devising one of the most innovative and successful sports slice of life stories ever – and the sales truly show it.

The light novel sales of first half fiscal year 2011:

We can also see another impressive entry with repeat offender Infinite Stratos – which forms a nice little list of five all in itself.

The line between success and failure is great on sales chart as apparent with the total no-contest by Moshidora.

    Moshidora is a business novel, not a light novel. Just saying.

      Yeah I agree – the anime is more like an infomercial also.
