Gotta consider reading Ao no exorcist, even if anime is bad.


Maybe because from the half onward the anime is filler.
But, it seems still served the purpose of increasing the manga's sells.
I hope it continue selling like this.

I have read onepiece and bleach in this week by magazine.
It is very wonderful.

Hmm. I am actually more inclined to think it the Kuroneko and Kirino shipping bases. I am sure we have all seen the autistic Kirino fanboy on youtube by now right?

Not sure if this is a joke, but what jmal said is correct. There's no other reason behind it.

Ao no exorcist

What the? I can see the anime's influence, but in this number? Fujoshi really do support a lot of the sales.

And oreimo being top I'd no surprise since no haruhi/index is released at this time. I wonder what's up with the cover?

Nagato yuki-chan no shuushitsu is alright. But really it's getting way more support than I expected(though it's art will always be 100times better than the haruhi manga's art

Shounen week hopefully ends

What does the collector's edition entail, may I ask? I'm imagining it was released to coincide with the film adaptation.

Didn't last Oreimo novel sell 150,000? about.

Sold 195,361 after 3 weeks, 151,194 in its first week. I think this one has lower numbers reported because of the shorter selling period.

For example, Vol. 8 was released on 5/10. The data that week was for 5/09 to 5/15. That means it had 6 days of sales in that week's rankings.

This volume was released 9/10. The data for this week is for 9/05 to 9/11. That means it only had 2 days of sales accounted for.

So Vol. 1 was on sale three times as long when its first week sales were recorded, although we should consider that first day of two of sales are usually the biggest. I think we can wait until weeks 2-3 to get a better sense of how much it's really selling compared to Vol. 8. It's probably not nearly as behind as a straight comparison of the numbers would seem to indicate in the absence of context.

Nice to see Beelzebub relatively up there once in a while :D

Sep 15, 2011 5:57 AM by HalcyonDays23

Gintama deserves its spot.

Wow!! When did Ao no Exorcist get so much popularity? O.o


I blame Rin's cuteness. Dat tail.

Next thing you know they will try to make a whole new season for the anime with a whole new set of filler episodes to try to get some moneyz. Cash cow ftw

Sep 14, 2011 10:29 PM by SoraKuro

It's Ao no Exorcist generation..

Made my day to see these. The Ao No Exorcist sales caught me off guard a bit, even with the anime.
