I'm really glad to see Shaman King hanging in there after all these years, especially with the start of Flowers.


Same I am! Really hoping for flowers to get sales like this!
Who knows, if this gets popular maybe an anime remake can happen somewhere in the future! /fandreams

WTF??? 62 volumes and only sells this much?? wow, It's as old as conan, no wonder it's art looks so old

It says it started in 2001, whereas Conan started in 1994. And just because it's got a ton of volumes, it doesn't mean it sells really well. Otherwise, series like Golgo 13 and Kochikame would outrank everything else in sales.

Oh no 1 is Kimi Ni Todoke! I want a season 3 please! Although for the cumulative sales One Piece is still leading very far!

Pretty amazing how much of a boost Hyouka is seeing. In a week or two it'll have added 100k copies since reappearing on the Oricon lists, and 2-4 are doing very well too.


kyoani fans doing, well animated and colorfully detailed drawn moe sells well

I love Rozen Maiden. I hope for a 3rd season or reboot of the anime. It's just begging for it! ><

Over 100k for Ane no Kekkon. Pretty good for a josei manga with no anime adaption. Got Vol 3 in the mail today~
