Ouch Kagami no Kuni. Those aren't the greatest of numbers. Has ST&RS even ranked at all?


While it may seem like low numbers, I think its ranking isn't all that terrible. Asides from Magico which I think volume 1 ranked in the 20's when it came out, there hasn't been a relatively new Jump series that has ranked better than #11 where Kagami currently finds itself. As for St&rs only two volumes have been released and I haven't noticed any of them ranking in the top 30 at all.


Ooh that's a shame. I like ST&RS, unjustifiably so because I am attracted deeply by the astronomy aspect in it. Hopefully the author doesn't get to discourage or forgoes the science aspect for cliche shounen battles.

Nice, I'm glad for titles such as Bakuman and Natsume Yuujinchou...:)

Good to see Initial D though it gets repetitive sometimes.

*4, 223,590 *,223,590 New Prince of Tennis vol.7 <-- :D
*8, *66,780 *,*66,780 Prince of After School vol.2 <--- LOL WHAT? Seriously? I love this! I'm surprised it's on here!

I'm really hopeful that Japan will embrace the UK anime, seeing the manga doing well. Fingers crossed.

What is this Biblia thing? Looks interesting, but I can't understand moon runes.

A mystery with a romance. A beautiful but shy owner of secondhand book store solves mystery of the owners of old books with her assistant man. I read the two volumes and quite liked them.
