Shounens are in the top five as ever.


Uh, Kimi Ni Todoke is shoujo.
But ignoring that... yay One Piece! Gintama! Sket Dance!

Bleach's popularity has been going down in Japan ever since the Hueco Mundo Arc, which is one of the reasons for why there's only one last arc until Bleach ends.

Nurarihyon no Mago needs moar sales.

Why have I never seen Beelzebub on this list even though its high ranked on manga sites?


Beelzebub isn't that popular in Japan.

I always see OP and Naruto on here but hardly Bleach.


Whenever a volume of Bleach comes out, it does make the top 30, but it's always below Naruto and One Piece. It's been selling less and less with each ongoing volume it seems. This listing doesn't have it since no new volume of Bleach has come out.

I want InuxBoku's manga too. ;A;
And I didn't know Steins Gate had a light novel, I want to read it. ~

Yay!! One Piece!!
And Gintama!!

From the show of Gintama, for a while I had thought they weren't doing well with sales because they always complain about it.... -_-

It's kinda like Good Ending. Pretty popular on scanlated sites, but the volumes sell horribly.

While I understand what you're trying to say, GE is a pretty bad example. On average the sales for a Beelzebub volume in the first week is five times higher than for GE. 150.000 in the first week is nowhere near "horrible".

It's popular in America but not as popular in Japan (at least, not even to get people to buy individual volumes).

I see. Thanks!

I suppose some of the top titles here only sold for a few days hence the quite lower sales than last time or...?

Feb 9, 2012 12:11 AM by Tomislavr7

very glad to see Magico up there! ^_^

Look at those Inu x Boku SS volumes~
Getting popular because of anime =D

Feb 8, 2012 9:29 PM by Shih

Sigh, I'm glad NuraMago is still selling by the hundreds but compared to the previous
volumes, it's significantly lower. Doesn't help that in the ToCs it's at the bottom 5 most of the time and the anime has already finished.
It had it's immunity before by being in the top 10 in 2010 and top 15 in 2011 but it may wear off in a few months. Let's see though.
