nice to see Heavy Object at number 3, but aren't those sales a bit low? i hope it's a good volume and word of mouth makes its sales go higher next week.

You mean the anime? I wouldn't call it suffer and the anime is just not good in my opinion.

Suffered in the sense of is performing very poorly despite having fairly popular source material. The explanation I hear most often is that the anime is covering the material that was not popular in the manga; the manga only got popular later, and it doesn't look like the anime is getting to that material, and it's bombing in pretty spectacular fashion.

Plus it's Gainax. Gainax hasn't had a real hit since Gurren Lagann. They're a cursed former shell of what they were.

I was watching it for about half a dozen episodes. It was okay, but okay wasn't good enough for such a good season, so I ended up dropping it to make time for other things.

My bad, I didn't see it that way. As for the reason, that's pretty much it and Kumagawa's character played quite a big role, too.

What about Evangelion (although I hate it), can it help them keep staying in the business without having a hit?

Yeah, I don't blame you but try episode 10 and 11 if you find some spare time, those episodes represent the real Medaka Box.

As far as I understand it, Rebuild is more of a Studio Khara (primary animation production studio, founded by Anno) project than Gainax (I usually see the latter referenced as "assistance"), though I'm sure Gainax makes plenty of money for their part in it, as well as all the ongoing merchandise sales. But overall, I'm not completely sure what the current status of the Evangelion rights are and who benefits most from what.

So I don't think Gainax themselves are about to go under. I'm just referencing their rather dismal track record with TV anime (in terms of sale) over the last 5 years or so.

Reeally happy to see Magico selling pretty well..


It's pretty average, actually. Don't have high hopes on him.

And the author of this Bleach LN is Narita Ryohgo (DRRR!!, Baccano!), right? It can't be so bad.

KHR is #3 with 277k sales. Not bad for this series wish Artland would bring it back for another season since I feel the manga is ending here in a few months unless Akira has more stuff up her sleeve after this arc.

*1, 521,626 *,523,875 Bleach, Vol. 55

That's a pretty huge first week. It's more than the second week numbers for recent volumes:

*1, 204,333 *,474,084 Bleach vol.54
*1, 269,751 *,269,751 Bleach vol.54

*2, 188,928 *,437,357 Bleach vol.53
*2, 248,429 *,248,429 Bleach vol.53

*3, *86,695 *,486,948 Bleach vol.52
*1, 400,253 *,400,253 Bleach vol.52

*6, 104,191 *,504,537 Bleach vol.51
*4, 400,346 *,400,346 Bleach vol.51

Presumably vol.55's second week will be much smaller than the 100-200k the others got, but even so it's a large increase.

(Oh, and go go 200k for Hyouka, should only take 2 more weeks.)

It will likely happen due to fujoshi power. It's expected to sell 10k.

I am going out on a limb and say that about 45k people in Japan read vol 180 last week. I know, I know it's hard to believe that the people who buy manga actually read them too.

That some great difference in bleach sales. I wonder what happened. Last few chapters were actually good but i doubt they're covered in this volume.

And the author of this Bleach LN is Narita Ryohgo (DRRR!!, Baccano!), right? It can't be so bad.

Is it true? can someone confirm it.

Huh, neat. I'm happy Bleach is selling well. This final arc is pretty good so far in my opinion, minus a couple of poopy things.

Every once and a while some things become super popular and their popularity lasts for years. It's not really hard to believe if you can put aside your personal feelings and not get tripped up because it is something you happen to not like.

I don't like Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings but their popularity at the time didn't cause me any disbelief.

Claymore, Kuroshitsuji. :3

Bleach manga is rather surprising, but the light novel's rank's expected.
