Great job, Shingeki no Kyojin. Nice to see that it's still at the top of the list!

Maou Maoyuu Yuusha where? T_T


Does Maou Maoyuu even have a new LN or Mango volume out? If not, it probably won't rank on these lists.
As you can see, the majority of them are first week.

I don't get it, why is Toaru translated in 10 x less the time required to translate other LN setres ????


20 volumes were translated in a few months, seriously i couldnt read faster than they were translating it. Js06 got some crazy speed with his translations.

About Shingeki no Kyojin, it's a good read and it keeps getting better from the start.

At least Bleach isn't #1.

Is One Piece the only one capable of selling more than 2 million copies per volume?

Congrats. I hope it passes 3 million!

Why? A new volume hasn't been released.

Glad to see Nurarihyon no Mago there. The story is currently getting more intense every chapter.

No surprise there. Can't wait to read it once Baka-Tsuki is done translating it. (I hear WORST trolls Mikoto part way through it.)


She already does in chapter one, which at this time is fully translated.

Funny how shingeki no kyojin is #1 one on that list. Couldn't get past the first two volumes my last shot at it. Can't say I care much for this list. Wonder if there will be a cumulative list or chart at the end of the year.


Shame that you didn't because honestly the plot has been accelerating since then, and continues to accelerate. If you were turned off by the art, that's quite understandable, but know that the art has improved vastly since then.

Maou Maoyuu Yuusha where? T_T


The art was okay for me. It was mostly the story's pacing. I felt like the characters needed more of a back story but instead they just pushed them ahead when the Giants destroyed a major part of their city and just time skipped the rest of the details. For what it's worth, I might pick it up again. I liked the premise just not the execution.

The art in Shingeki no Kyojin is amazing(I mean the expressions)

Woah. Didn't expect Shingeki no Kyojin to become to popular. This pleases me, it's probably the best shounen series out there.


It was in the top 10 manga this year, it hardly surprises me that it's first :p

Love it

Oh, I should start reading Nudarihyon again, it's really well-written!

I don't get it, why is Toaru translated in 10 x less the time required to translate other LN setres ????

Any new on the next Haruhi novel?(if any)
