It deserves the triple it is right now, or even more. It's a shame quality isn't the main factor in sales :/

Tokyo Ghoul on first place because they defeated a Magi volume covering a long,boring flashback.

is an interesting theory, but I believe Tokyo Ghoul is selling well because although the anime was poorly done, people sought the manga and found the story interesting.

Flashback was 22 chapters long. In this volume it was covered half of it.

Magi has drastically improved since the flashback ended thanks to Judal and Hakuryuu.

TBH, TG is like a Seinen Magi(interesting story, bad MC but surrounded by a good character cast, fights are mostly forgettable)

I think they are just using his name to draw attention of the public, if they speak it is just a filler made ​​by the writers of the anime, no one will want to watch, but as they are saying it is a filler made ​​by the author, people can interesting, anyway, I want Kaneki vs Arima in the end.

You are right, Magi character cast is better than Tokyo Ghoul.

The characterization in Magi lately has been excellent, TG might reach that level with Torso and Serpent reveals.

With Nardo ending in 1-2 weeks, the Big 3 Era will end and it will be the beginning of the 8 Wonders Era.

So Bleach Vol 65 already fell out of the Top 50 with only sales of 402,000?

The last volume already saw a sales low by only selling 468,000 copies in 18 days before falling out of the Top 50 but this latest one has only sold at the very most 429,000 copies in 24 days.

I wonder if Vol 66 can sell even worse.

I don't think Terra Formars will sell so much, or is there something I'm supposed to know about it?
KnK as in...? The only thing I can think about when I hear KnK is Kara no Kyoukai.

KnK = Kuroko no Basket.

TF was selling around 660 K per Volume before the anime aired. They got an anime boost 2(a small one).

The Japanese have weird tastes, Naruto volume featuring Obito TNJ did better than Gai vs Juudara....

Not much in the manga rankings that interests me particularly. Good sales for Fuuka and Kingdom though.

As for the LN rankings...
*1. 32,488 *32,488 Madan no Ou to Vanadis Vol.10
*4. 15,757 *26,713 Oda Nobuna no Yabou Vol.12 National Edition
*7. 10,861 *95,136 Accel World Vol.17
26. *4,961 *41,481 Eromanga-sensei Vol.3

Great to see these up there, need to start reading Vanadis as the anime has had a superb start. Need to start Accel World as well. Eromanga-sensei vol 3 arrived this morning, still yet to read past chapter 1 though! Need to find more time.

*6. 13,863 *24,853 Amagi Brilliant Park Vol.5
18. *5,952 *23,345 Amagi Brilliant Park Vol.1
20. *5,849 *11,186 Amagi Brilliant Park: Maple Summoner Vol.1

Amagi Brilliant Park boost continues, deservedly so as well. They're on my December import list.
