Eroge Novelisations Not Slipping

This is actually Hana to Hebi, a game adaptation of a novel, but still...

Those familiar with eroge and novels will know the two often intersect, with relatively frequent novelisations of erotic games being a feature of the genre; so it was with interest that I read a very firm rebuttal of the worry voiced that these conversions are slipping. Half Moon Diary provides a revealing graph, showing that novel releases are roughly stable at around 60 per year from two of the major publishers, and an impressive grand total of 540 titles since publishing got started in 1996. “官能小説 / sensual novels” are certainly popular in Japan, though I’m not sure these numbers comprise much more than a small fraction of the market, to say nothing of light novels and the like.
