Here are the weekly manga & light novels rankings for August 29th - September 4th.
Note: Oricon has stopped providing the cumulative sales, so I have to calculate them using the last week's data. Since the workloads to make the manga rankings have highly increased, there will be a delay in posting or changes to the formats of the rankings.

NOW Ao no Exorcist is back. I keep hearing so many different things, I never knew if it was popular or not.

Guess it is this week. ^_^V

checked out first chapter of blue exorcist..it reminded me about a bullshit manga called bleach..

Sep 8, 2011 8:18 AM by sharon1

Why was everyone surprised at the position of AnE?
I think it deserved the 1st place
The manga is very awesome (may be the anime had some effects on the sale)

Sep 8, 2011 8:06 AM by kennichiro

Wow, Ao no Exorcist had some huge sales there, I guess it can be called a success now?
Really nice job...
I'm also glad to see Gintama, Nurarihyon no Mago and Beelzebub high up this week, too...:)

AoEx is #1 and with a huge difference!! O_O
I'm glad!!

Sep 8, 2011 2:43 AM by lzumi-chan

Oishinbo is above one piece
Oishinbo FTW

Sep 8, 2011 2:39 AM by DateYutaka

nice to see blue exorcist and gintama taking top spots!!

Sep 8, 2011 2:35 AM by kamina99

Ao no Exorcist! <3
Good to see Mago too :)

Sep 8, 2011 1:59 AM by Anarkan

fate/stay night is doing good.

Sep 8, 2011 1:22 AM by sharon1

Blue Exorcist kinda destroyed everything else this week. I don't know how I feel about that.

Anyway, it's great that Gintama and Nura are on the list.

Sep 7, 2011 11:21 PM by GZTC

AnE #1? Very good.

Sep 7, 2011 10:46 PM by cyborgneko999

Wow! Gintama as #2 though it should be at 1 (no offense to Blue Exorcist or its fast growing fanbase), but still, cool! And it's about time I see Umi No Misaki up there as well! Kou Fumizuki seems to be an underrated manga artist despite making great drawings in his works.
