Wow!! Three volumes of Ao no Exorcist made it in the rankings!

17, *38,051 *,*38,051 Rozen Maiden vol.5

Yeeeeees. All according to keikaku.

Jun 3, 2011 3:10 PM by SoneAnna

I'm guessing people wanted Haruhi then? lol

Oh well the rankings looked good (don't read most of them series but oh well)

Billy Bat is insanity and it is awesome.

Good pick for Number 1, Nippon.

Jun 3, 2011 8:34 AM by StreetFighter

I was just wondering, if Naruto and Bleach are part of the big 3 then why arent they here in the list?


Because a new volume hasn't been released yet...

People can't purchase things that don't exist.

Way the go Haruhi!

Jun 2, 2011 6:30 PM by Mika_Inamori

Question. Did the Haruhi novels come in two seperate books or were the books put together?

Because shouldn't it be 170,500 units sold each book?

Ooh, nice to see good manga like Billy Bat and Genshiken doing well. I'm waiting on that Billy Bat license so I can own the pretty volumes instead of reading it online.

kekkaishi good bye u will be miss

Jun 2, 2011 7:58 AM by Mr_Gutts

I need to read Billy Bat. Yay at Deadman Wonderland being so high up.

Jun 2, 2011 6:44 AM by holypoop

Papa no Iukoto made it at number 6 nonetheless. Although not surprising since the same vol no of Baby Princess also made it in the rankings when it was out, lucky 7 ftw.

I need to get those raw scans from the blog and start reading it.

This is showing that Japan is beginning to have some taste.

Jun 2, 2011 6:31 AM by Hoppy

Toshokan Sensou :3

Jun 2, 2011 5:01 AM by Tatanium

Yay, Rozen Maiden! XD

Jun 2, 2011 4:32 AM by Ayumu5599

It is great to see that Shinrei Tantei Yakumo is on the 6th place whit volume 5, but I can't finde the volumes. All I found was vol 1-2 and 3.

Jun 2, 2011 4:24 AM by KaraTenshi

Billy Bat in first is surprising, but Urasawa deserves it.

SBR #11 is also pretty damn cool.

You're right...but I guess they are the big 3 not in Japan but in USA or in other countries

With baka-tsuki banned from publishing their Haruhi translations online, will there be translations for volume 10 available any time soon?
