22, *44,835 *,*91,223 Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica vol.1


Wow, a clearly worse compressed adaptation of an anime-original series did so well. If we're seeing those numbers for the manga, I can't wait to see how well the anime sells.

wait, what?, madoka hasn't done well at all,i was expecting more mahou shoujo like ccs or nanoha, not a suspense anime that doesn't have magic at all

Not unexpected considering Amano's awesome cover 8D
Good to see KHR! in Top 3 nevertheless.

Huge numbers. Oo

I'm so happy that To-LOVe-Ru Darkness is selling great. Yabuki-sensei really deserves more success...(he has been living in real hell after all.....;____; ... )

Mar 10, 2011 12:38 AM by ringoo4

Good for Conan.

Mar 10, 2011 12:21 AM by AlexSadist-sama

Bakuman Bakuman Bakuman yay yay

Amazed to see Railgun so high on the list. Well, it is where Misaka has the most screentime unlike Index manga/anime or the light novels.
>Sees Pysren way down
Japan agrees with me that Pysren is overrated outside of Japan.

It good to see To Love-ru up there ...

Mar 9, 2011 11:11 PM by Album

happy medaka box is up there, dissapointing that they had to convert to battle manga, instead of the comedy and life

Mar 9, 2011 11:08 PM by Cordelia

Wow good to see Kuroshitsuji up there! <3

Mar 9, 2011 10:43 PM by AmnaMJ

Kuroshitsuji and Natsume ^^ Nice

Mar 9, 2011 10:39 PM by Heiko92

Nura! Bakuman! Psyren! Madoka!

Mar 9, 2011 10:03 PM by GZTC

It is nice to see Katekyo Hitman Reborn! is on 3rd place.One Piece, Bakuman, Detective Conan and Fairy Tail are on the list too^^

Nice to see Railgun in the upper tier rankings. And in general, nice to see so much variety in the top 30 manga rankings.

Mar 9, 2011 8:24 PM by Numi

InKyuBeyTa did not approve of how he was drawn in the manga, so he pushed down the sales.

Anyway, IS is so asking for a second season.
