How popular is the light novel of Mahouka Rettousei Koukou in Japan?

All I want is the current ratings and standing of this light novel series in Japan.

  • We can use metrics such as sale numbers and the like, but as it stands, this question seems to be too broad or speculative. – Frosteeze Jan 24 '15 at 15:09

In terms of light novels, it seems to be the best selling series of 2014. Based on sales surveyed from November 18, 2013 to November 16, 2014, it ranks #1 with an estimated 1,599,614 copies sold.

However, if you look at individual volumes, Mahouka Rettousei no Koukou volume 13 ranked #5 with 226,371 copies sold. In comparison, Kagerou Daze V -the deceiving- ranked #1 and sold 398,038.

Hope that answers your question.
