Wow, almost 100% fantasy stuff - fortunately there is one eye-catching exception: WataMote! And I surely did not expect Monster Musume would be among the top 10 bestseller in US...
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.

Monthly light novel sales ranks (from Jan 2015)
Bestselling light novel volumes of the year/all time* (and more in the same club).

There is no such thing as shit taste. Only idiots who think everyone should have the same taste as they do.

WataMote being there that's pretty surprising. Didn't think people liked that enough especially in the US.

wow, sure watamote is selling well in US! (I love the manga since I first started reading it one and half year ago, but I didn't expect other people who is not familiarized with terms such as "otome games", "drama CD", etc to enjoy it this much)

looks like YenPress did a really good job with the translation~

decided, I'm also getting the volume next time in december or january

I witnessed AoT's US popularity firsthand yesterday when my co-worker who has never mentioned anything about watching anime/reading manga told me Japan was lucky that they were getting Attack on Titan: Last Wings of Humanity for 3ds in 2 weeks. When talking with him more I learned that AoT was the only anime he has watched outside of Toonami/Adult swim. Also note that this guy didn't know I watched anime either since I hide my powerlevel.

Spike Chunsoft (Dangan Ronpa, Pokemon mystery dungeon) is the publisher so there could be a US release in the future.

oh no shingeki's popularity here is really weird to me, im having the exact same experiences where people who randomly bring up they love shingeki

Its honestly safe to say shingeki may have broke the cultural barrier like cowboy bebop and DBZ did

oh yah it will, lets just hope the dub is good. I mean it probably wont be hard to do that cause its not like any of the characters really had much emotion behind their voices half the time in the japanese

obligitory points at signature.


Yugioh is the current top selling card game by # of cards sold iirc. It isn't so farfetched for any issue of yugioh with a promo to not sell
If your going to complain that Yu-Gi-Oh! Mangas are on the top NY times manga best sellers, you must not realize how popular Card games are(as well as the fact that you get a free card).

Well, Yu Gi Oh has been popular for years, yeah? I think it's fine to AoT to take a few more years to take over. It's not like it should get all the limelight, really, but what it's really great for is that the limelight that's being shone on it is also paving a way to introduce many other great series that wouldn't normally have been known outside of Japan and its fanbase because of how other people normally view anime.

WataMote is one of the few franchises that seems to be more popular in the West than in Japan.

I read that the manga became a huge hit on 4chan and they started importing it. Apparently, the Japanese picked up on this, started buying the manga as well, which eventually resulted in the anime being made.

And now that the manga is licensed, people who wanted to read it in English can do so now. I bought it myself and am very happy I did. It's not exactly a visual masterpiece, but it's entertaining nonetheless. I'm definitely looking forward to getting the upcoming volumes as well.

I'm still a bit surprised by SnK's immense popularity. It's good, but I woulda never marked it to be such a massive hit. (Shows what I know)

Black Butler is one of the standard weeaboo-level anime. On the 'any random high school girl with pink hair, a death note t-shirt, a notebook full of bad fanfic, and has seen about a total of five anime' has 100% watched it, loved it, and introduced it to all their friends. Due to this, it's incredibly popular in America.

As a competitive yugioh player the reason volume 5 sold so well is that the $10 manga has a promo card that is valued at around $25 in it so many people have gone out of there way to get there hands on many of the volume, myself included where ive bought two and still looking for more to collect lol

Monster Musume is still hanging in there. =)

I didn't think Watamote would be in the top ten. The anime it seemed did it justice. It wasn't my favourite show but I still really enjoyed watching it.^^
