I've only read one volume of Vagabond and it was really good, I need to get back into that series.

Nice seeing Tokyo ghoul getting more boost in sales from the anime.

DAAAMN look at Oregairu. Sekai no Owari no Encore pretty well seeing it's only the first volume. But Rokudenashi Majutsu Koushi to Akashic Records takes the cake.

Hmm... That's odd. Probably the series is aired at late nights. That may explain why we are not seeing any boost in sales for akame ga kill, or maybe people are just not interested in it.

Not bad at all, Cocoa Fujiwara. 80k in a first week is a pretty impressive achievement for a new series.

Majority of the seasonal series air at night. That is not justification.
Tokyo Ghoul(Thursday) and Akame ga Kill(Sunday) both air at 24:00 in japan. Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun(Sunday) air at 25:05(So basically at Monday 1:05 am).

The thing is that Akame ga Kill was never that famous in Japan. Probably with the anime the series is getting a boost, but nothing to appear in the weekly rankings.

Yea, you're probably right the sales for akame ga kill are well..... really poor. I guess this series is not the next big thing as people were saying then.

Nah, it's pretty obscure to be honest. The average manga sales it makes is like 30-40 thousand volume copies. The series doesn't even make half a million sales in the entire year. Hopefully it gets some sales as the anime goes by.

To show you how bad it's selling, Assassin classroom volume 10 alone sold more than all 11 volumes of akame ga kill combine.

The series deserve more recognition, if a silly series like assassin classroom can make so much sales, akame ga kill should be able to sell like that as well.

That's sad to know,I mean,everyone have different tastes,but I just hope it gets some attention.
Although not perfect,it's a very interesting series.

What's with these comments? The last volume came out on 21st June. Why would you expect it to be ranking now?
Weekly light novel releases (from 20/10/2014)
Monthly light novel sales ranks (from Jan 2015)
Bestselling light novel volumes of the year/all time* (and more in the same club).
*that there is data for

There is no such thing as shit taste. Only idiots who think everyone should have the same taste as they do.

Didn't know this was popular. Dropped the anime at episode 3.


Inu x Boku SS is an interesting beastie. The whole anime is basically the prolog of the main story and it's not until later that the real story starts up. Unfortunately it looks like we won't get the rest animated which is both unfortunate and rather surprising as it sold rather well in anime form.

Vagabond and Kingdom selling good, I appreciate that. I doubt Kingdom will ever get a Western release, but at least I can buy the new Vagabond volume in Europe soon enough now.

Akame is just your average gritty Shounen, I never saw the hype about it in the first place and I think Japan has other gritty Shounen that interest them more atm - like Shingeki or Tokyo Ghoul or all the other stuff that is basically the same.

not surprised to see Gekkan shoujo nozaki-kun on the list. i checked the pre=volume sales for the summer season and Gekkan is the most succesfull non sequel anime series so far.

A bit disappointed that Akama ga kill is not ranking well. it seems it is one of those titles that is more successful for western audiences than at home.

I am also a bit surprised that Tokyo ghoul is not ranking much more, i have not read the manga but from what i heard they are doing a bad adaptation maybe that's why.

It got a big boost previous weeks, so it's reasonable that it falls of later on.

On the second note I'm happy for Noragami and Yahari Ore and it looks like I'll need to get to Vagabond soon :).

However, I can't understand Inu X boku and Gekkan shoujo.

I dropped Inu X boku after like 3 episodes and now i can't even remeber what was it about. (dropped it a month ago)
Well, Japanese have shit taste, basically opposite of what western audience prefer. It looks like to me that for Japanese you just need moe or OP God character and will top the charts every week. Story, logic or other things are irrelevant.

As for Gekkan shoujo, I like the anime, it's funny and positive with interesting characters but to be that successful seems like a bit overkill. Well, I'm rather surprised than annoyed.

I actually sort of agree with this. It's good, but nothing groundbreaking. Imo SnK and Tokyo Ghoul were better.

Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun's sales are awesome. Glad to see my current fave of the season is also appreciated in Japan. If things continue to be good, we might eventually get a second season. Also, I hope Yen Press or any other publisher picks it up for an English release.

Pretty disappointed that the latest Pokemon Special volume didn't rank though :( Maybe next week? There was a pretty good twist for the arc's conclusion.

Also glad for Noragami, Tonari no Seki-kun, Oregairu, Mikagura, and Shuuen no Shiori! First week sales for the last two are a bit lower than their previous volumes (I suspect the critical failure of Mekakucity Actors had something to do with this), but still glad they're pretty high up in the ranks! I hope sales pick up ^_^

Also glad for Noragami, Tonari no Seki-kun, Oregairu, Mikagura, and Shuuen no Shiori! First week sales for the last two are a bit lower than their previous volumes (I suspect the critical failure of Mekakucity Actors had something to do with this), but still glad they're pretty high up in the ranks! I hope sales pick up ^_^


I highly doubt Mekakucity Actors had any effect on Mikagura and Shuuen's sales and frankly it wouldn't make much sense if it did have one. Chances are the sales will catch up with the previous volumes' sales next week and if they don't it's much more likely to be caused by the readers becoming disappointed with the series.

How was mekakucity actors a critical failure?

Its fairly decently rated on japanese sites and had decent sales.

The only morons crying about it are on myanimelist.

And maybe Tumblr. Or it could just be me, I'm pretty disappointed with the adaptation since I'm a longtime fan of the series.

Well, I also theorize that the reason why Mikagura and Shuuen's sales this time around were lower (other than perceived quality going down, I can't read Japanese, so...) is because no new songs have been uploaded to their series for a while. The third volume of Mikagura was released a month after the fourth song, which definitely increased awareness and popularity of it. Shuuen has no excuse though; it's nearly a year since its latest song.

Mekakucity Actors has currently sold over 11k and currently is the 3rd best-selling show of spring 2014. It's far from critical failure in terms of sales.

Hence why I said citical. I didn't mean commercial, I could also see how well it's doing. A fair number of fans SEEM to be disappointed with the adaptation (and by fans I mean longtime fans of KagePro) so I made the assumption. Feel free to correct me if you wish.

Why did people hate Inu x Boku SS? It is one of the best show in 2012. Haven't read the manga but I heard anime is just prologue to the story.

Hmm... That's odd. Probably the series is aired at late nights. That may explain why we are not seeing any boost in sales for akame ga kill, or maybe people are just not interested in it.

Bad performance by Akame Ga Kill. The manga is really great, it's a shame it's not selling more.



What's with these comments? The last volume came out on 21st June. Why would you expect it to be ranking now?



I wouldn't say bad performance, but totally different that the western fans were expecting. I got really surprised and still don't understand all the hype the title as here in the west. The manga is not bad, is in reality good, but not something that special.

Note that because of the anime, the series should have received a noticeable boost and previous volumes should have appeared in the rankings. Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun is a manga from the same publisher, Gangan(Square Enix), and you can see previous titles appearing in the rankings due to the anime boost.
Nozaki-kun right now is doing way better than Akame ga Kill!
