Tokyo Ghoul is crap. I feel bad for the thousands of people who wasted their money on a copy.

Why would you feel bad when it's not your money? Also what you may consider crap may not be the same for others.

Oh what do you know you learned something new.

Other than Monster musume, none of these are my favorite. I think I won't get any of my favorites in these 2 months.

Jojo hanging in there, it would do better once Part 2 gets released, since it features one of the best Jojos is Joseph Joestar.

BNHA, Nardo, OP doing fine too.

I doubt it will do any better than Phantom Blood, people are buying it because it's JoJo not because of the quality of the part

Hating on a series is crap. I feel bad for the thousands of people who wasted their time on hating.

On another note. Yay!!! So happy for tokyo ghoul n boku no hero academia!!!

Heck I know TG anime is crap but for the manga it isn't(10X better than the anime) so sometimes you don't just judge a manga by its anime adaptation.

We'll see that's where the problem lies. Since there're many Animeonly watchers they won't try the manga and just stay with the anime. So there judgement will come from only the anime.

*5. Citrus Vol.3
*8. My Hero Academia Vol.1

I've only read a little of Hero Academia, and I like it so it's nice to know that I can get my hands on a western release to catch up on.
and I've had Citrus sitting in my PTR for ages, I'm pleasantly surprised to see it in this list. I'll definitely look into buying this too.

also ??? at the person bitching about Tokyo Ghoul
chill

Tokyo Ghoul still going strong, I see. Did volume 1 already outsell both Assassination Classroom vol. 1 & Big Hero 6 vol. 1? Anyway, we're guaranteed to see Attack on Titan vol. 16 next week.

Volume 2 won't last for long

Its right behind the SNK volume 16 in the amazon ranking so I think its gonna last long enough in the top ten until volume 3 is out.

Selling well for a week or so doesn't really make something popular. Manga sales wouldn't be that big anyway.

It will fade away soon. It's a popular manga that inspired by a popular anime and you shouldn't be angry that it's selling well.

There is no need to rush the schedule for something that only has like 9 volumes out right now and the recent chapters have been as short as 4 pages iirc. I'm not kidding.

But it's not a new release for Viz. It's just them finally releasing a digital only release in print as well.

I'm not a huge expert on the business side of manga, I'm just not too familiar with a series debuting onto bookshelves with it's first two volumes releasing on the same day. Has something like that happened before?

They're probably trying catch up to Japan especially with the anime a coming. Anything that's popular usually gets a faster release.

Praise his opinion for he is no one! Preach it! :v
"I'm just your typical human being who commit sins just like you. But the difference is that I never lied and tell anyone that what I did was right. I regret and ask for forgiveness from Him."

Why is my signature not anime-related? It's because who gives a fuck? Anyway I'd like to advertise to you this:

SHINGEKI NO KYOJIN IS FOLLOWING A SIMPLE FLOW OF THE STORYLINE. AND IT GETS REPETETIVE IF YOU VIEW IT ON ITS BIGGER PICTURE. WITH A LITTLE PLOT TWIST AND NEW IDEAS, YOU FORGOT THAT IT HAD ALREADY HAPPENED BEFORE.

Also, Tokyo Ghoul is AWESOME. Especially :re.

I believe the first 2 volumes were released on the same day in Japan as well.

I think they're doing it out of tradition.
