Seems like this weeks was Shingeki no Kyojin, all its volume are selling so well. I can probably already predict that there will be a second season at this rate.

I seriously do not understand how AssClass manages to sell that well. It's times like these that i wonder what's up with Japanese people's taste in manga. It's barely an average series.

Great to see Kuroko and Shingeki doing well though

Hum, MAL information and Wikipedia says there are only 4 volumes of Toshokan Sensou and the serie was concluded in 2007 so why there are 6 volumes of Toshokan Sensou on the rank? whats happening?

You can find out why this manga is so unique and special by reading this analysis from Mainichi, a major national newspaper in Japan. Japanese of course. But in short, this manga has a very unique and appealing take of the kind of education and teacher that young students (those in secondary and primary schools) in Japan would find appealing and convincing.

Perhaps a good opportunity to learn something about a foreign culture instead of just questioning the taste of that culture because you think your taste is better?

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.

^ I wish I have those translated. Whatever the reason, it's a fresh air in list of Light Novels rankings.

Informative sig, btw, which temps me to ask something. I saw Zettai Shounen novels marked as English translated on Wikipedia, but couldn't find who got the license and where (or when, idk) I can buy them. Could you help?

200k for Saki and 140k for Achiga. Now if only Kobayashi would put out enough to ensure the anime can finish one day before I die.
Don't worry, after Zenkoku-hen there has to be at least one more season (finals + maybe individuals, that would mean another two cour) and who knows if she plans going international or pro later. She'll keep on drawing longer than Miura ;)

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong but it seems that SnK is getting the largest boost from anime out of any manga.
All volumes above 56k in one week.
All volumes sold 154-173k except for volume 10 which sold 758k (30k limited edition). That means consistency is great and people buy the manga as a whole (unlike Magi where all volumes ranked at the same time only once).

Seeing how it goes, I'm willing to take a bet Shingeki will overcome Naruto by volume 11.

Good catch. It should be "Bannou Kanteishi Q no Suirigeki vol.3". It is not in the MAL database so I have now linked to a Japanese site and made the correction to the first post.

I can´t believe that Vampire Knight sells after those very bad chapter we´ve gotten. Anyways the last chapter will be out this month so it will conclude with 19 volumes? Hmm...at last it will end.

I´m pretty sure that the Manga ranked 2 will get Anime Adaption soon. It sells too good not to be made into one.

Shingeki still going strong. No surprises there.

Kuroko and AssClass selling spectacularly in their first weeks. Still proud of AssClass. Never thought it'd sell this well and it's most deserving as that chapter with Nagisa was just amazing.

I'd have though SAO would drop out by now seeing as the hype for it in the LN sales died with the anime but good to see it pulling strong for a 4th week. This volume is particularly good from what I've read in the summaries so I'm pretty excited to actually read it. So yeah.

It's a few thousand copies below where vol 11 was when it dropped off (285972)
