Slow week for manga. It was to be expected that a lot of people would pick up copies of Blue Exorcist. Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukanai seems to be continually gaining popularity.

And, damn, Haruhi sold like hot cakes.

So the new Genshiken manga is selling good. I hope that could mean another anime series.

With baka-tsuki banned from publishing their Haruhi translations online, will there be translations for volume 10 available any time soon?

Glad that OP is one of the top 5. LOL
I was just wondering, if Naruto and Bleach are part of the big 3 then why arent they here in the list?





Thank you to Cyruz-chama for patiently helping me with my siggy ;)

You're right...but I guess they are the big 3 not in Japan but in USA or in other countries

Billy Bat in first is surprising, but Urasawa deserves it.

SBR #11 is also pretty damn cool.

Papa no Iukoto made it at number 6 nonetheless. Although not surprising since the same vol no of Baby Princess also made it in the rankings when it was out, lucky 7 ftw.

I need to get those raw scans from the blog and start reading it.

This is showing that Japan is beginning to have some taste.

Ooh, nice to see good manga like Billy Bat and Genshiken doing well. I'm waiting on that Billy Bat license so I can own the pretty volumes instead of reading it online.

Question. Did the Haruhi novels come in two seperate books or were the books put together?

Because shouldn't it be 170,500 units sold each book?

Because a new volume hasn't been released yet...

People can't purchase things that don't exist.
