Railgun at top of the list this week nice. And seriously, I need to find some time to read Vegabond one of these days. It looks like Hibi Chouchou barely made it to the top 10 this week as well ;o

The volume 70 of Naruto was release the 04 august that's why the sales are bad...

Someone's already corrected you earlier by mentioning you should consider release dates when looking at these sales but I'd still like to add some short fun facts. Naruto's volumes nowadays are still selling 800k to 1 million, which is two times more than the FT volume you mentioned.

It's kinda funny that you imply a severe fall in sales for Naruto, since if I remember correctly Fairy Tail actually had quite the fall considering the volumes being released 2 years ago or so. I can't speak about the relation quality-sales of either series in recent times since I stopped reading them both more than a year and a half ago though. By the way, why should FT be in the new "big 3"? Supposedly that used to be the title for the 3 highest selling manga of Weekly Shounen Jump a few years back but FT isn't even from Jump. And if you're considering Shounen in general there are plenty of other shounen series that sell more nowadays. Just from this ranking alone you have 5 shounen series that outsold it for example.

Anyway, Giganto Makhia is actually selling a bit more than I anticipated. Besides that it's quite nice to see that Nozaki-kun is actually getting its fair dose of back-sales. I may be wrong but I don't think it's very common to see this effect so clearly in romcom series so it's a rather nice surprise.

I don't really care about sales anyways.... also naruto had 2 whole days to sell a lot. it could have at least sell over a hundred thousand in sales.

Naruto sells 28,493 in two days...X that by 6 it would be 170958

so in a whole week naruto would sell around 170958k. still not impressive if you ask me.

The fact that previous volumes returned to the rankings is proof that the anime is doing a great job in advertising the manga so it has achieved its goal.

I've been stalking Animate's bookstore site for basically half the week, and I noticed they have a BL ranking thing and Love Stage!! has been ranking pretty much in the top five spots all that time. So the manga probably got a boost, I'll just never know how much cause it's not enough to rank. This is suffering.

Quite a few BL series ranked this week though.

Didn't even notice that.

Those are pre-released sales. It will have a lot more than that, in the next week. Some fans couldn't wait to get their hands on the new volume ;).

Be sure to tell us how it makes you feel, next week :o

Still less than 500,000 copies sold, Magi. Guess that shows how badly received the flashback really is. Sadly, deservedly so.

GSN-k volume 5 still has good sales. Not bad for a 4koma comrom.

Also really glad Mikagura and Shuuen still has nice enough sales in the second week.
