Shueisha:

- My boy Gintama reaching 300k, I am satisfied.

- Shokugeki so close to that 300k line, but still a growth from previous volume sales

--------

Shogakukan:

- Kenichi holding strong... New announcement according to the guys at MH... Anime continuation? :o

- Denpa Kyoushi not so good, but it's probably gonna sell 30-40k more next week

--------

Kodansha:

- AKB49 both version combines to sell 40k ish... Next week it's probably gonna add a good amount, say 20k or at best 30k.

- Vinland Saga is too good to sell below 100k... I have confidence that it'll break the 100k mark next week, adding say 60k-80k or as I would dare to dream, 90k-100k :P.

- Congratulation to Kodansha, having themselves 2 new hits: Hoozuki and Noragami

- Hoozuki grew to being a 200k level seller, as it's combined sales this week is 150k.

- Noragami went from being a 50k seller to a 100k seller, awesome!

- Shingeki vol 12 is definitely in that 1.9 - 2 million zone :P.

Sad taste you have there kid you came up to me in the first place making you look more like a kid who got slapped without me even knowing it and start crying about it to me

Nanatsu no Taizai @ rank 2 this time, freaking awesome. Terra Formars...meh, I still have mixed thoughts on the manga.

Nice sales for Noragami though. I love the series and it's nice to see it getting attention. Also, High School DxD volume 17 is out? Interesting.

Is there any news of Nanatsu anime adaption? The opening week sales are gradually increasing, that's a good thing. Vinland Saga sells way too low for the quality it packs. Again!! sales are steady but I find the last arc of the story to be quite a train-wreck.

It's good! And really, novels aren't that expensive. It's the Blurays that are expensive but I got volume 3 of the Bluray with volume 13 of the novel today. The start of novel 13 is funny though... love it! Novel 0 that came with Bluray 1 is good too. As are the parts of the other bonus novel with volumes 2-6.

Was worried that the sales aren't good for the 13th novel but it was released on the 23rd so I expect it should rank again next week hopefully.

It's a sci-fi about terraforming mars with cockroaches but they turned into giant homo-sapien cockroaches with a lot of gore and mystery. (how did they get like that?)

Noragami got a good anime bump and another one perhaps surprising, maybe not really but it's never ranked before... Muromisan v10! 25K, never ranked before. Perhaps just close before but I have to believe it picked up a few readers.

WOO. SO happy to see Noragami here. Anime so good and for sure best anime of the winter season. Hope it keeps selling well.

*2. 179,590 *,180,407 Nanatsu no Taizai Vol.7

Get anime already so those sells can triple. Glad to see it selling well though. Hope you can surpass Fairy Tail.

Nice! Still going strong. So far I'm enjoying the manga a lot. Can't wait for the anime :)

*2. 179,590 *,180,407 Nanatsu no Taizai Vol.7

Still selling very well. I expect a long running anime in the future.

*4. 118,795 *,119,275 Noragami Vol.10

I don't read the manga (I plan to though). But the anime is great and its nice to see the manga get a boost. Fingers crossed for a season 2 of the anime.

12. *76,014 *,*76,014 Vinland Saga Vol.14

I've never read Vinland Saga. But I see plenty of people hailing it as a masterpiece. So I thought it would sell better to be honest. I guess the tastes of the Japanese and the Western World remain different.

31. *28,698 *,*28,698 Birdmen Vol.2

Good. I've enjoyed the first few chapters of this.

32. *28,448 *,277,726 Shokugeki no Souma Vol.6

My favorite manga right now! I really hope its cracks 300,000!

39. *24,292 *,*24,292 Denpa Kyoushi Vol.10

I'm surprised this doesn't sell better. That's a shame. I like the manga.

49. *19,590 1,532,293 Shingeki no Kyojin Vol.12

Still hanging around huh? You just won't quit.

*1. 39,797 *39,797 Highschool DxD Vol.17

My favorite Light Novel! Nice to see up on top! Can't wait for the Baka Tsuki english translations for this volume.

Cool boost for Noragami and Hoozuki, and a little boost for Romantica Clock. Only volume 12 of SnK made it on the list now, that's cool to see.

Would be cool to have flat SOL anime.

Terra Formars has always sold very well. The anime will most likely push its already great sales even higher.

Noragami and Hoozuki got great anime boosts!

Noragami volume 8 sales: 86,317 (11 days)
Noragami volume 9 sales: 60,123 (6 days) (failed to rank in it's second week, less than 27,878 copies)
Noragami volume 10 sales: 119,275(7 days) (second week yet to come)

If we take volume 8's sales, in seven days it sold 54,929 copies in seven days. It has already more than doubled it's sales.

I know, but I like buying this stuff in bulk, and all my spare money is currently going on course exams (the course itself having eaten up my savings) and Non Non Biyori blurays. Both of which are, of course, unavoidable expenses.

13 volumes at once is expensive though if they're in a set you can at least save on shipping sometimes...

Non Non Biyori Blurays are indeed a necessary expense. Volume 3, episodes 5-6 are so amazingly good! Next manga volume with OVA should sell well.

JOHJ BE PRAISED.

I am glad for Nanatsu no Taizai's continued increase in sales, though. This could go well over 250k for the next volumes and I am sure an anime would boost the sales again. Then again, with these sales it is a given that an adaption announcement will happen this year. I personally hope for Madhouse and the HxH staff.

Some more sales for Vinland Saga would eb welcomed as well.
Stone Ocean adaption when?

I don't understand much of how things work, but does this mean a second season of the anime is more likely now?

Definitely. Not to mention around two weeks ago, volumes 1 and 2 ranked again which is something extraordinary. Most manga get a boost with their latest volume and that's about it.

BD and DVD sales are not looking that hot at the moment but if Kodansha wanted to, I'd say they can make a second season since they have definitely benefited from the anime.

(Now, for a little speculation. Skip if you're not interested)

So, volume 10(manga) had the Kamigakari arc and volume 11 will have the flower viewing arc so if they make a second season theydl probably use up chapters 12-23 for season 2. That would be perfect.

Oh in that case I should pick up the manga as soon as season 1 ends :3
