Im kinda new here but what does this numbers mean ---->>> 650,587 650,587 Naruto vol.55?;) Sorry for stupid question.xD I can guess the answer but i want to be sure, thats why im asking this.;)


The first number is the total sales in that week for the manga, the second number is the overall sales for it. In this case, when the 2 numbers are the same, it means the manga has just been published. On topic, glad to see Shingeki no Kyojin on the list.


Tyvm for your explanation.;) Bleach and Naruto <3 <3 <3

14, *57,324 *57,324 Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai vol.12 with a bookmark
I wonder how many people bought the same volume just for the bookmark.
^I would rather want to know what's inside the bookmark XDD There's already the same volume but only without a bookmark. I guess those buyers already bought a volume without a bookmark and then bought the same one just to get a bookmark XDD Well this volume is the spark of the awesome arc so I guess it has something to do with "that"

Gantz \ 3 and Fairy tail \ 5 .. Good to see them in top 5 =D

I see Giant Killing being 4th and i think "Oh hey, maybe this could be cool, the title is interesting". Then i see syonopis - football. The fuck...?

And Bleach and Naruto being first again, why Japan?

Good to see Kami Nomi doing good, should be even higher though. And lol KnIM.

Woah! I've just seen the ranking of Moshidora...there were more Mashidora volumes sold than all the other novels together...and it still sells good. I want to give it a try...

Apr 28, 2011 4:27 AM by koleare

lol as usual Naruto and Bleach

Naruto is good this days, but Bleach needs to step up its pacing

So we have twgok twice on the chart, setokai yakuindomo, kimi no iru machi AND shingeki no kyojin on the chart. Quite a good week i would say.

Yeah Naruto!!!. Haters can suck it XD. Naruto is the fifth most selling manga of all time for a reason you know.


Thank you. This is pretty much a f*ck you to the guys who say "The japanese people who buy manga have better taste than american buyers," on the US top 10 selling manga of week so and so thread.

On a side note, happy to see Gantz, The World God Only Knows, and Higurashi are selling.

Apr 27, 2011 10:03 PM by artist-retired

If the two places for Kami nomi were added together instead of separately (because one has a bookmark....?) it would have sold 132,808 copies. It would be 5th place instead of 10th and 14th. Cx
Glad to see it's selling well!

Apr 27, 2011 9:36 PM by Salinga

Naruto, Bleach, and Fairy Tail Fighting. It's true that there are better manga out there but what's the point if it not selling.
