Good job, Soul Eater and Bleach. I watch the animes, but I plan on reading Soul Eater after, and I just love Bleach, as well.

Yay for Kino no Tabi! Again, watched the anime, but I loved this.

And double-Yay for Bakuman! I actually read this and love it. And #2, also. It's great to see it doing so well. ^_^

How is Bleach doing compared to the previous volumes?


Better, I believe. It's popularity sky-rocketed after the Ginjou/Tsukishima reveal and the return of *that* person.

Some titles on here I haven't heard of. I love these lists for exposing me to some things I might have otherwise missed / passed on.

Medaka Box still sells..

Oct 12, 2011 6:46 PM by AlexSadist-sama

Not as much as Onimonogatari,.

It sold more than Onimonogatari. You're only looking at the standard edition's sales. The DVD special edition sold 74,018 copies total last week.

Oct 12, 2011 6:45 PM by Suzuku

Wait...... Medaka box was successful!? Not that dong like it, just surprised..... Good for it!

So BAKUMAN continues to do good. But my big surprise is the spinoff with sena as main lead is selling this well? That really says something about it's popularity.

And.....
Enigma is doing ok. Glad to hear(though I like it, I think the plot iacking a few detail.....)
No comment @ ryo kyu byu(what ever it was) getting number 5.....

Hope for accel world and sword art online adaptions come soon!

So basically as soon as these (meaning this fall season) shows start airing, NOW these people start buying the manga.... buy the anime instead, folks, whatever your reasons may be. Industry needs it.
Uh... not really.

Anime that are adaptations are usually advertisements for the manga/novel.
And often the manga/novels are already really popular.

Not as much as Onimonogatari, but it continues to sell and even vol 1 got back in. And the spin off manga made it too.
