Are you talking about being ranked high on scanlated websites? If that's the case it's a pretty simple matter. The sales only reflect sales in Japan. Scans can be read by a larger demographic, but at the end of the day, even if it's popular on scan sites by fans elsewhere, it won't matter if Japanese fans don't like the series since they're the ones buying it.

Master Keaton is a big surprise. Doesn't seem like it'd ever be that high on any top selling list, ever.

Simply because you don't remember the rankings a few months ago.

So we like it but they won't buy it. I understand now.

Spoilers: One Piece is popular in Japan.


Disagreeing with me is like you saying "my opinion is wrong".

Sigh, I'm glad NuraMago is still selling by the hundreds but compared to the previous
volumes, it's significantly lower. Doesn't help that in the ToCs it's at the bottom 5 most of the time and the anime has already finished.
It had it's immunity before by being in the top 10 in 2010 and top 15 in 2011 but it may wear off in a few months. Let's see though.

It's popular in America but not as popular in Japan (at least, not even to get people to buy individual volumes).

It's kinda like Good Ending. Pretty popular on scanlated sites, but the volumes sell horribly.

I suppose some of the top titles here only sold for a few days hence the quite lower sales than last time or...?

While I understand what you're trying to say, GE is a pretty bad example. On average the sales for a Beelzebub volume in the first week is five times higher than for GE. 150.000 in the first week is nowhere near "horrible".

From the show of Gintama, for a while I had thought they weren't doing well with sales because they always complain about it.... -_-

Whenever a volume of Bleach comes out, it does make the top 30, but it's always below Naruto and One Piece. It's been selling less and less with each ongoing volume it seems. This listing doesn't have it since no new volume of Bleach has come out.

Uh, Kimi Ni Todoke is shoujo.
But ignoring that... yay One Piece! Gintama! Sket Dance!

Bleach's popularity has been going down in Japan ever since the Hueco Mundo Arc, which is one of the reasons for why there's only one last arc until Bleach ends.
