Not at all. This is a list of anime volumes sold in their first week of release. Blue highlighting means Blu-Ray volume.

If you compare it to super-popular stuff like Sword Art Online (volume 1 sold for over 36,000 copies with volume 9 selling 26,000 copies, making it pretty much the king of the list) then it did sell less than that, but volume 1 of IS 2 still sold well over 21,000 copies with each following volume selling over 11,000.
For perspective, Date A Live is considered to be a popular financial success, with a second Playstation 3 game already coming in two months, and it didn't break 8,000 copies per volume.
Another popular and anticipated series, Little Busters!, sold just short of 10,000 copies for volume 1.
IS 2 hasn't even finished releasing all its volumes yet and it's staying at over 11,000 copies sold per volume.
And if you look at the list, you'll see a lot of animes don't even break 5,000 copies.

Just as a bit of related trivia, last I looked the Sword Art Online novels were number 1 at over 1.2 million total copies sold. Number 2 on the list was Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei, just over 410,000 copies sold. Date A Live was in 4th place for almost 400,000 total copies sold. (I can't remember where IS was, but I think it was still in the top 10?) Almost a 3x difference between number 1 and 2. So SAO is in no danger of being overrun by anything, not just Infinite Stratos.

Forgot about this for a bit, but High School DxD sold less than 9,000 copies per volume in its first series, and less than 8,000 per volume of its second series.

Never much of a fan of Mahouka, but I must wondering how the heck could SAO overruns it so far?

Beside, I blame Izuru. It's very hard to ressurect a cancelled series.

(Exept if it's Kaze no Stigma)

You mean Infinite Stratos? How is saving his novel from cancellation anything to blame him for?

(agreed on the second part there)

Broken dreams of IS having actual plot than PLOT?

Houki, Houki, Houki,... Don't be that hastily to jump in a relationship with Ichika.

I must say, the manga is getting better and better. Congratulation to the mangaka and translation team!

The anime sucks. so is the light novel. On the other hand, the new IS manga by Yuuki Homura ( if you read H-doujin and h*ntai, you probably know him) is awesome.

Which is why I'm even more annoyed, since I understand pretty well how I.S. are mainstream success: it's the girls above anything else

Just like Super!Naruto and Stu!Ichigo, and their harem, that is.

Nope, not even fans that bought the book talk about it. Baka Tsuki just put the cover.
So, we need to wait untill someone translate it... Do you want to learn Japanese?

Shhh...

Damn it, Izuru, give us some real action!

... On the other hand, Silent Zephyr is being modified into Shirokishi. And we've got hot Squall/Autumn "action"!

It seems more like Volume 4 with harem antics and some plot in the background. Looks better than the abomination that was Volume 8. Not a huge improvement, but still an improvement.

Half of volume 4 actually has character development and interaction

Fucking Izuru
