I don't know most of those, but I recognize a few, even if I've only seen their anime. Still, congrats.

Can't believe Conan's still going, though. XD


Compare it to crayon shin-chan and doraemon. As long as it's getting 10%+ rating on TG it's hard to get it off. It's as old as One Puece and comparably popular. Though the recent cases are less interesting......

Time to start watching my favorite all timer again! Love Ai-chan!!!!!!

1 thing not sure about: haruhi-chan. Riding on series's name again huh? Puyo has 2 successful series now....

Wow. That's incredibly good sales. Animation sure gave tons of boost to its manga.

Conan is doing well..

What happens when a series doesn't appear on this chart for a while. Does that mean that the manga is doing poorly?
I am specifically talking about Tegami Bachi. I haven't seen it on this chart for the longest time. Does this mean that the manga isn't doing well in Japan?

Tegamibachi is released approximately every four months. The last volume was released long ago.

The 13th volume has been behind the schedule. It will be out in November.

I knew the Kami Nomi anime didnt do too well, but I was always under the impression that the manga was doing good for itself. I expected it to be higher on that list.
Well it's not its first week out
