I thought Vol 2 would at least reach 500K, but 600K damn.

re Vol 2 - 616,683 copies in its second week.
re Vol 1 - 464,971 copies in its second week.

That's a pretty big increase.

Hell yeah, volume 5 also reached 1 million :3

And judging by the sales for volume 13, the others are likely to follow. I hope we get a second season despite the low anime sales.

Also, reminder that I should pick up Tokyo Ghoul manga.

Pierrot Studio best anime studio ever.

Just make an anime with great animation but shit script/directing etc and it gets popular.

Happy for AC boost, though.

That Tokyo Ghoul:re sell though! So far, only Vol. 2 has been released and it's already at 600K! Good going, TG.

Have yet to read it Kakukaku Shikajika, but good to see it in the top 20. Just won the Manga Taisho Award for 2015 so it'll probably sell more soon.

Kagerou Days is back! I forgot when was the last time I've seen it on the LN list. The Novel Anthology made it in January and February's list, but that's all. Hopefully it'll stay constant.

With the pace its selling, I honestly won't be surprised if it hits 800k in the next few weeks.

Fairy Tail such a shit TG curbstomp them, the latest volume included one of the worst chapters in Manga history.

It was a big insult to the intelligence of the fan. They cant probably even outsell current Bleach.

YES!! It's easily passed last volume's 108k and almost doubled Vol. 15, and should hopefully be over 150k next week.
Congrats to the author and also Pierrot for doing such a good job on the anime.
Need S2, pls!

18. *46,833 *,*47,045 Non Non Biyori Vol.8

Nyanpassu! I knew they had to reprint the manga during S1 and even recently for Vol.7, but never knew exactly how much it was selling. S2 hype!

But it's important to remember that a movie review is subjective;it only gives you one person's opinion.

http://www.classzone.com/books/lnetwork_gr08/page_build.cfm?content=analyz_media&ch=30

It doesn't matter if you like LoGH,Monster etc.If you are a jobless or college/school dropout living in your mom basement, you are still an unintelligent loser. Taste in anime does not make you a better person.If elitist don't exist, casual pleb and shit taste also don't exist.

Yes, lower sales than the previous volume. It's already been on sale for 3 days (2ch must have an insider who knows it was on sale 2.5 days earlier than the official date of Mar 28th), so a 4th day wouldn't make much of a difference compared if it was 2 days on sale for example.

Shoujo dominating the top 5? Nice. Hoping Ore Monogatari gets even more attention once the anime starts airing.

Good to see Billy Bat on the list soon and I heard that the manga is returning this month.

Omgyasss TG:re is topping the list again! Really deserving considering the content of the volume and also that gorgeous Touka cover :D

I wonder if the next volume will sells more since the story gets even more interesting and is going in amazing pace.

Also happy to see so many shojo titles that is not Kimi no Todoke up there.

Another week of :re and that Touka cover on top.

Last volume of Papa no Iukoto is selling 16k. So people are masochist to read that horrible disgusting ending.

Long live Oregairu!

I wonder how much TG:re vol3 will sell? By then anime effect will be gone and It won't have the beautiful Touka who took first place on the poll as a cover :P That will be the real judge XD

AssClass having even vol5 now reach 1million is amazing!

Ofc my happiness for AnY is the most tho. Hopefully nxt time it will reach 150k and keep this up nxt volume >.<
