And like you've said, it had to compete with progressive.

But regardless, anything that is 150k+ doesn't need to worry about sales.... Heck, just selling 50k is already an accomplishment for most titles.

i'm pretty sure sales don't jump by 10+k after the first 1-2months of release..

unless of course the series gets an anime (looks at sao)

nevertheless, i'm sure the author has no reason to worry about sales

Your karmic sacrifice wasn't in vain, we got a good cover.

Accelerator is with a strange smile, it's hard to know if he is happy to know a new loli, or is happy because it will make a killing.

I wonder if the reason that Misaki isn't on the cover is because she's in the summary text?

Hmm, I thought that was obvious? It's a reference to how Touma has become this 'saviour' figure (especially apparent in NT volume 4). Presumably this works as foreshadowing for Touma 'dying for our sins' at the end of the series.

Eh? I thought it was just a name ? Kamachi doesn't seem to give a lot of thoughts into his naming sense

A certain Magical Index
A certain Scientific Railgun
Heavy Object
The Zashiki Warashi of Intellectual Village
A Simple Survey
The Circumstances Leading to Waltraute's Marriage

...All very literal

Ah, sorry Kamachi, I didn't get your point, how dull of me.

Anyone other than me notice that the cover is a picture of the "crippled" level 5's?

Well what were you expecting? With the exception of Mikoto, the Level 5s that are relevant to the current story are all damaged goods.

Glad I wasn't the only one. It's also funny how the 3 who were hurt the worst, 2 of which were pretty much brought back from the dead, are now likely stronger than they ever were.

Oh, and here's a higher quality picture of the cover for NT6, cleaned by me and my photoshop excellence. Sadly that was the highest quality I could get from the picture.

Spoiler for Large Picture:


And here is a 75% vectorized version.

I find it funny that Accelrator doesn't changes as much compared to the other two

At least Accelerator will be on the battle with his fav. winter coat... His face is saying that "I gonna beat you to pulp"
And I agree that they're all crippled and getting a lot stronger, I hope Mikoto won't get hurt a lot from this monster war ==!

Kakine's face looks like Hollow Ichigo's. The white hair, the white skin, and the black and yellow/golden eyes. What a ripoff!!!

[sarcasm] And of course such characters never existed in any kind of literature until Kubo invented them. [/sarcasm]

Where do you see golden eyes? His eyes are covered in shadow on the cover?

Kakine looks more like a ghost or phantom.

Kakine's eyes are indeed yellow/golden in the image.
Change your monitors colour settings or tilt monitor (Whichever is easier).
Another alternative is to press (ctrl) and (+) on your keyboard to zoom in on the image (on a Windows PC), or the zoom button in your browser.
