Kamachi is #5 on a list of top-selling Japanese authors (and not just LN authors).

He's described as:
>The fast-writing prince of the light novel world who specializes in hot-blooded battles.

Okay, that's awkward using the New Testament's cover as a representation of his work I don't know what the other author's works are about- but to have little loli Fremea up there with the best of them... Awkward...


Not to mention being surrounded by all these old codgers and cows

I find it out of place that a teenage book is in the top 10. The rest look like something my mom would read.

You know what would be awesome? If that silhouette stand-in was 'mistakenly' printed upside-down... Normal People won't get it... But the rest of us would shat bricks

It's crazy stuff I know... But it's not the first time that a Teenage/Young Adult writer got bump up to the big leagues... *cough Harry Potter* But this is truly shocking news... This might beat "IS selling 30K+" for shocker of the new decade (thus far).

Is there anyway to find out more about this article? Like the publisher or writer? Lets get all the facts straight before we go to town on this.

To summarize what it says about him:

It calls him the Oda of LNs.
Miki says he's stoic and doesn't compromise when it comes to making a good novel.
It says he gives the readers what they want when it comes to magic, weapons, and special powers.
It says he writes really fast.
It says his female characters are delicious.

I don't know, I just assumed there's someone else named 'j206' But what I meant was, what did he say about the whole article? As in his opinion?

Who's Oda ?

Notice they never say that he gives the readers what they want when it comes to character relationships That's right, no pandering for you !

Delicious? Does that mean something else in Japan ?

Let's see.. BokunoTomodachi's Author at number 57, DenpaOnna's author at number 43, OrenoImo's Author at number 31... Don't know who that is that number 16...

What about the big ones like Monogatari and Haruhi?

js06 gave more detail on the sales

Apparently, the ranking is from sales between 1/1/10 and 6/15/11.

In that period, he produced 4 volumes... But it's startling that it could propel him to number 5 from number 20... Maybe if it's only among other Light Novel Authors, but this covers all the writers in Japan

I think from that time though he sold about 7-8 million copies iirc. I remember some info about how up to June from January this year he sold 1 million + copies and took the place as most selling LNs.

The comparison to Oda is highly appropriate in this case.

Both Kamachi and Oda, greatly successful authors over the years, have recently hit huge yet sudden strides in popularity for both their works (it's curious how synonymous it actually is).
At this point, the difference of sales from the competition is simply disjarring.

They're like Accelerator: even for the ones close up the rank, there's a shocking difference in power.
