Very happy to see these. If I may make a prediction, when Koe no Katachi gets an anime, it will become one of the biggest hits, at least in the western anime community. Just a feeling though, I may very well be wrong.

Attack on Titan/Shingeki No Kyojan is finally off the list, huh? Guess the sales are dying down. What's the stats on 'em anyway?

If other recent LNs with 2-day release weeks are indicative, it probably won't get much more than 2-2.5x that for the 2-week total. LNs that can't top 15k after two weeks of solicitation have a pretty lukewarm track record as anime. The anime might boost novel sales a bit, but it feels like a series that will have to beat the odds going in to sell large quantities of disks, KyoAni or no.

Not sure how Kingdom usually perform in rankings but over 150k is good sign for a manga in its 30+ volumes. The Sinbad side story of Magi did really well too. Tonari no Seki-kun & Sakamoto desu ga? indicates Japan love of quirky, trollish manga.

Baby Steps is a good tennis manga. Distinguishable character designs, down to earth, yet manage to build up excitement like all good sports series do. Anime adaptation seems to be a little bit late but it's still better than status quo. I like the pun-riddled slapstick rom-com of Wagatsuma-san wa Ore no Yome too.

Early volumes didn't rank but v11 and v12 are on the list still

49. *18,270 1,629,807 Shingeki no Kyojin Vol.11
33. *29,148 1,414,177 Shingeki no Kyojin Vol.12


I noticed vol 11 at 49 but didn't see the 12th vol at 33. Still, I mean it's impressive considering, but it's finally fading away. I might search the total sales for each volume later, cause I'm quite interested. Sales might soar again with a second season, but for now this is the "final" numbers give or take 100K leeway maybe.

Nisekoi and Hotsuki boosts. Not surprised right there.
Will the manga boosts translate to bluray buyers is now the new question. Either way, both have successful boosts.

AoHaraido will be the next Chihayafuru. My body is not totally ready.

Well that makes more sense. For a second I was thinking, "Man, that must be a really good hentai"...

Needs way more material first. BTOOOM! volume 13 goes to chapter 69. The anime went up to chapter 51 or so. We only have 1/3 of what we would need for a second season. Going monthly it will still be a long time before there is enough material.

Disc sales were poor but it has held onto its good anime bump so perhaps in a couple of years they'll think about it.

The mangaka has a new series, La Vie En Doll which didn't rank unfortunately. Volume 1 just came out. Though its sales being poor might mean good things for BTOOOM!, not sure.

toriko volumes would sell much higher if toriko had a good anime that would show the blood and the other gore and epic things in the manga

Could someone tell me is there any good source to check manga sales? I mean convenient one like dvdbd.wiki.fc2.com/ or some other sources for anime DVDs/BDs. So you could just type romaji or original name and found all sales of the title per volume and average one.

The closest I've found is ANN where if you search by name, it will show you manga and anime and on those pages it has links to news including the manga sales. Not as convenient as a single database just of manga but it is something.

Not necessary with search. The one with yearly ranking would be good too. The thing is I just want to check couple of mangas sales per volume but It's hard to get full data by searching for all the week charts.
