Now nearly all of the SnK volumes have surpassed the 1,000,000 sales mark. Next week (or this one) volume 10 should finally join the others. Aside from that

Plus, the new Kagerou Days album called MekakuCity Records that now (I'm not sure if it still is) sky rocketed to number 1 on the Oricon charts in the matter of three days! Really, ONLY THREE VOCALOID ALBUMS EVER MADE IT TO NUMBER 1. That's really successful for a Vocaloid producer, especially since it's the first Vocaloid album by a Vocaloid producer that went solo (really successful)

Yep, here's a warning folks; the Kagerou Project anime will take us all by storm (announced last year, but no following words of it yet)

Do you have the sales number volume wise as comparison?

SnK received a rather large boost due to anime, no? I remember it was hovering around 400-500k before.

I'm so happy to see Suicide Island/Jisatsutou in the rankings!

And Shingeki no Kyojin continues to dominate.

Glad to see Deadman Wonderland and JoJo are also continuing to do well.

Fixed.

> 20. **7,229 **7,229 Love Live! School idol diary ~Takasaka Honoka~

This is the first and more will be coming yay!
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.

Good to see these two up there. Zetsuen got a good boost in it's manga sales so the anime wasn't a total loss...I hope.

30. 30,287 *,*61,346 Heroine Shikkaku Vol.10


What I would give for even one of these to get an anime. Come on, Shueisha, please? Ok, ok, I know, TnK, Sukitte and KamiHaji's disc sales were horrible but both Sukitte and TnK made it to the Top Selling Manga for the First Half of 2013. That's gotta mean something right? And even KamiHaji got a good boost in manga sales.
Please Shueisha? :(

What I want as well. It would make such a funny anime. But it's been so long since Shueisha animated one of their shoujo manga. =(

This is actually a novel that is supposed to be a diary written by Honoka about things she does to become an idol and her activities as an idol. And it also has illustrations and character details information too. Eventually the same "idol diary" will come out for each of the members in Muse.

Add onto that the Limited edition came with blu-ray and costs the equivalent of $50 or £30 instead of the normal $5-6 14k sales is pretty good.

It's my fault for not having bought it yet.
Being serious, though, remember that the thing that matters is the total sales figures, whether we see them or not. If anything splitting it would increase the total sales, not decrease it.
