Hajime no Ippo, Sword Art Online keep up the good work.

It's a Nichigo show, so having it run for more than 4 cours is out of the question. 4 cours aren't impossible but interviews have made it fairly clear that the anime is focusing on an early arc of the manga (that basically ends in vol.8), which heavily suggests we'll be getting 2 cours. If the adaptation turns out to be successful, the staff definitely has more material to make two other cours afterwards, though, if you add all the new chapters the mangaka will already have drawn by then.


ooh I hope the Japanese like it and buy it...>_< I need more fantasy shows.

I had no idea Magi was selling this well. Good on it, it's a great manga.

Slightly surprised it didn't get any boost after the anime was announced.

*7, 101,419 101,419 Magi vol.12 (link)
*4, 106,179 106,179 Magi vol.13

Well, I'm not counting 5k as a boost. I guess the real boost will come when it starts airing.

I know zilch about the series but I like having 1-3 long ongoing (>4 cour) shows in my schedule so this will slot in well with Fairy Tail and Hunter x Hunter. ...Or is it not one of those shows I should expect to go for 100+ episodes? Like I said, know zilch.

Jul 26, 2012 7:58 PM by YukinoAsakura

Hatsune miku LN? Need to get this.

Jul 26, 2012 10:27 AM by Mr_Gutts

Loving the Kaminomi sales. I wish they'd license the manga in English; I would love to have my favorite manga on my shelf.

Jul 26, 2012 9:22 AM by njd09

SAO is pawning those charts :D

Jul 26, 2012 8:56 AM by Hikarusuke

Happy for gems like Again!! and Baby Steps.

Why does a fight happen every time Kuroko is brought up?

Because the same guy who gets banned every single times he comes back makes countless alt accounts so he can bitch and moan about female fans liking a show he likes. In the process, he totally gives himself away. Again. Time to alert the mods once more.


this is off topic but could you explain something jmal? The 6th Hakuouki OVA DVD looked like it would only sell ~3.5k on Stalker(the rankings definitely weren't impressive) but it sold ~10k.

Some say its cuz people bought from the Animate/Otomate Store so it wasn't counted. I believe this too. Is this true or not?

Cheering on Natsume Yuujinchou.

Jul 26, 2012 6:26 AM by Mirorin

Hajime no Ippo vol.100
This looks really impressive. I think HnI deserves more than 130k though. Oh, there's 25k more from Limited Edition. Anybody knows what are the extras included in LE?

*8, *68,201 *68,201 Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai vol.17
*9, *67,635 *67,635 Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai vol.18
10, *67,187 *67,187 Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai vol.17 + 18 with an illustration book
So... it means ~135k for both volumes, right?

30, *32,536 451,740 Bakuman vol.20
Bakuman strong! Go for 0.5M!

Jul 26, 2012 5:38 AM by Progeusz

At first I thought that was Peace Maker Kurogane then I remembered it only had 6 volumes. Hope Chrono decides to release another volume soon even though I know what is going to happen next to the Shinsengumi I want to see it in his/her art and characters. ^_^

Jul 26, 2012 5:38 AM by Roloko

so gay or not who cares?
i like the anime regardless, and this discussion is quite off topic here

Same here!!
I am keeping an eye in this novel but I can't find any group which translate this >.<

SAO sells well again, and also the two novels of KnB, which I haven't read yet :D
