What a messed up list... sure, it's nice to see Gantz on the list, I guess the movie was actually good. But there is just too much One Piece. Heck, in top 100 this week, 40 volumes are One Piece. And the newest volume of One Shit sold over 2 million copies in just 3 days... this is getting ridiculous.

Still hating, I see.
It's a shame that you are the only one I know who hates OP while still reading so many other good manga. Exception that proves the rule I'd say.

Oh Yeah!! IS:Infinite Stratos got a few slots in the light novel rankings. Love it and I hope they decide to license and release it in the US. Yes light novels can be read online translated but I prefer to have a hard copy of my light novels and manga. Rather than reading it on my computer screen I would rather have the actual book because they look nice in my collection and I like to show my Japanese imported goods off.

You make it sound like it's a bad thing. I see nothing wrong with a manga that's selling WELL. Not to mention, sales of shonen magazines are going down, but that just could be because books and other prints are going digital and online.

Good to see sket dance is getting some love these days, hopefully the anime helps with volume sales.

And again, looks like infinite stratos likes to dominate the charts since the anime.

It's nice to see Gantz on the list multiple times, especially the early volumes. I got to see the live action movie last month. Sadly, it was only available in a horrendous English dub. >.> One of these days I will see it in the original Japanese. ONE DAY.

I don't get why Infinite Stratos shows up so many times on the light novel list, though. I watched the first five episodes, and it was terrible.

Those sales are absolutely terrible, on the whole.

The comics in the top 25th through 30th sold 19,000 copies. Used to be, those spots would be good for at least 30k copies sold. Any larger stories about the manga industry declining that we're missing?

Actually, no. Magazines are still going well. Some of them did fell in circulation numbers but some of them rose too.

And yes, it is a bad thing if there is a manga so popular that has no competition. Especially if that manga sucks.

Thanks, you read lots of good stuf too. And it's not really that I HATE One Piece, it's just that I LOVE saying how bad it is. Atitude like that got me into lots of interesting discussions. :D

I wonder why...
Usually, only newest volumes that were released in last 2 weeks get in top 30 list. Most of volumes show up in top 30 for a week or two and than never appear there again. Certain volumes of some manga stay longer on the list (like One Piece) or return because of some other factor like anime or movie (as seen with Gantz this week). Last volume of Bleach was released long time ago, and you will not be seeing Bleach on the list until next volume is released. No matter what you say about Bleach, it's still 5th best selling manga in Japan... shame, isn't it.

Come on, such a mindset is trolling and that can't be good....

But I agree on last paragraph. That was also what I was implying with my little sentence.

I love popular syndrome.
Little children like to bash it because it makes them a minority which is cool.

Kickass seeing Gantzs first two volumes on there.
If I didn't already own them I probably would have gone out and purchased them.

It was actually released in North America in 46 different states January 20th.
Check your local theaters to see if it's playing there still.

One hell of a different ride on a large screen instead of a tiny computer screen.

IS:Infinite Stratos is dominant in the Light novel sales which is a good thing for us. Hopefully the US notices this and begins to release them in English because I heard that the Light Novels are better than the anime and I find the anime quite enjoyable and look forward to watching it every week. And for all of you IS:Infinite Stratos haters all I have to say is you can hate all you want but you cannot drag down the sales. I hated Bleach because it had so many readers and a manga I really loved was not as popular therefore could never surpass Bleach in sales rankings. IS:Infinite Stratos fans you have made a good choice and don't let the large quantity of haters keep you from reading it.
