It's time for Gin no Saji to get an anime adaption, I've consistently seen it rank high. At least I'm hoping to see it happen some day, for some reason the synopsis has me intrigued. Even if it asn't by Arakawa Hiromu I'd be interested.

Also Magi still seems to be profiting well from the start of the anime.

My tears. 20th years anniversary and the best whodunit manga I had ever read.

Glad to see Again!! selling much better than the 20k figure of its previous volume debut too.

Bought about 20 volumes and a bunch of new releases, but none showed up here. I'll pick up the new Principal and Kami-sama Hajimemashita later.

Umm, last week was 8th-14th october, this week's list is 9th-15th...is it just me or something is wrong here?
And nice sales for Ro-kyu-bu, i guess with the announcement of the second season it's bound to get a good boost.

anyone know anything about this Tsukimonogatari?

If the third season were to air, i can expect a large boost in sales, because after where the second season finished is when the whole thing gets interesting.

True, there has been a news thread about it in April, seems I missed that. Great to know. I guess I'll just have to wait on more informaton being released then :)

That upgrades Ahiru no Sora to the top of my personal wish-to-see-an-anime list from those top 50 ^^.

Shaft is going to adapt the whole series of -monogatari, right? So it just has to line up along with the other half a dozen novels that came before it for anime adaptation. If the anime project goes well for those novels, it will eventually come to Tsuki.

As for Silver Spoon, it has already won multiple manga awards including the prestigious Manga Taishou ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manga_Taish%C5%8D ) and received favorable reviews in many places. It is one of those manga that are popular with both critics and general readers.

BTW, finally half of the Magi manga are now out of the top 50 list....
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

Arghhh... SAO v9 fails to chart again for the 4th week in a row. I wonder where it's at now, lol?

Last 4 week's thresholds were:
24.09-30.09 / 6,208
01.10-07.10 / 6,024
08.10-14.10 / 6,965
15.10-21.10 / 5,073

Imagine if it missed out by a few hundred or so every week? v8 was found to be below the threshold by 94 in the Oct 1-7 week...

in SAO's case, "successful" is an underestimation.

Cool! Sugar Soldier Volume 3 makes it with close to 25k copies! Its a really cute manga, I'm really happy!
And KamiHaji gets 40k in 3 days of sales. Pretty good. Now, we'll see if it charts again next week, I hope it does!

kurobas was like that too. from time to time, the manga volumes used to get a boost when the anime was running as far as I can remember. When some important arc like Balbad(sp) begins, I'm sure it'll come up again.
