Second place in the total sells. Fans usually buy it in the first two or three weeks.
1,187,973 Naruto Vol. 61
2,744,511 One Piece Vol. 67

It's far away the One Piece, which is the best seller manga, but I believe Naruto has the second place, or Kimi ni Todoke. I don't recall other manga breaking the million sells at every new volume. Maybe Bleach in the past.
edit: after the first week: 706,697 Naruto, Vol. 61
It's 60% of the sells in the first week.

Seeing Hidan no Aria up there makes me so happy. The anime deserves a sequel so much.

Sep 2, 2012 3:26 PM by Akcope

Why a full version of Volume 17 of FMA?
A lot of Umineko manga sells in this week.

Sep 2, 2012 10:42 AM by kratos_aurion

Total sales (Aug 20-26) / Weekly sales
2,575,356 (112,924)

Total sales (Aug 13-19) / Weekly sales
2,462,432 (135,960)

Weekly sales still declining. I guess this is normal... but I wonder if a really good episode (I thought 9 was pretty good) will have any effect on the LN sales (Aug 27-Sep 2 week)?

I'm glad to see Piano no Mori up there!
