Pretty amazing how much of a boost Hyouka is seeing. In a week or two it'll have added 100k copies since reappearing on the Oricon lists, and 2-4 are doing very well too.


Don't underestimate Kyoani...

I see some intriguing series that I might see

20, *31,829 *,*31,829 Godhand Teru vol.62

WTF??? 62 volumes and only sells this much?? wow, It's as old as conan, no wonder it's art looks so old

22, *30,044 *,*30,044 AKB49 - Renai Kinshi Jourei vol.8
*4, 120,558 *,207,690 Otoyomegatari vol.4

I'm really glad to see Shaman King hanging in there after all these years, especially with the start of Flowers.

It says it started in 2001, whereas Conan started in 1994. And just because it's got a ton of volumes, it doesn't mean it sells really well. Otherwise, series like Golgo 13 and Kochikame would outrank everything else in sales.

Same I am! Really hoping for flowers to get sales like this!
Who knows, if this gets popular maybe an anime remake can happen somewhere in the future! /fandreams
