YES

NOT ALL OF SAO IS IN THE RANKINGS

FINALLY

THANK YOU


Then you claim not to hate (which is ironic considering your name..) why should it matter what other people buy? You don't want to buy it fine, but you shouldn't wish bad on other sales.


I'm not wishing bad, calm down. SAO has had every volume in the rankings for the past god knows how many weeks. It was a nice change of pace seeing it out of the rankings. You take me too seriously.

I don't give a fuck what they buy, and even if I wanted to buy it I can't read Japanese. :b

Oct 6, 2012 6:38 AM by ihateeveryone

Yay! Thermae Romae is on the top! I hope I can get to read it soon.

21, *,*33,349 *,*33,349 Lovely Complex Two Vol.1

OMG I didn't know there is a sequel...AWESOME !

Oct 6, 2012 5:10 AM by ainky

Glade to see Kimi ni Todoke and Chihayfuru on the list. Surprised with their rankings though.

Oct 6, 2012 3:51 AM by Samurai_

SAO down again... Seems like most of the people in the world already have their copy of each volume :)

I didnt really like bokura ga ita I feel like too many people got hurt in the process of the main characters getting together,
Bokura ga Ita was painful to watch, too painful to watch, I liked it but I can't remember how many times I raged because of the characters. It was good nonetheless.

Thermae Romae is doing a good job, I wish there were more chapters available.
JoJo in there too, first episode was the best 1st episode this season till now, no wonder it's selling that much.
Detective Conan is also as usual, selling well.
Billy Bat needs more love, I feel bad for Urasawa, did his previous works sell any better btw?
Magi is also not that bad, should get a boost of sales when the anime starts.
Bleach disappeared from the top 20, but it sold well for this volume in the last 3 weeks.
One Piece probably won't reach the 3 Million mark, it's still selling well nonetheless, well better than everything else.

Real happy to see Kagerou days listed there!

Kagerou Days novels are actually selling quite well. I am happy. Too bad it'll probably not get translated anytime soon.....

True ... they are still selling ... but for how long ?
These days it`s pretty successful but I`m afraid it wont have some much success in several months

Oct 6, 2012 12:17 AM by darkstone

Yep. Tsukimonogatari selling great.

glad to see ubel blatt on the list too

Oct 6, 2012 12:12 AM by underoath777

Waaah, I want to read Lovely Complex sequel/spin off/or whatever it is :<

Oct 5, 2012 11:56 PM by Kitsu-nee

If there's enough material, a new season of Kimi ni Todoke would be nice.


They do have a bit to work with but not too much happens other than the side relationships intensifying really. Doubtful for another season

Oct 5, 2012 11:17 PM by muntasir123

If there's enough material, a new season of Kimi ni Todoke would be nice.

Oct 5, 2012 11:07 PM by Reim_Seranth

Tsukimonogatari. Nice

Oct 5, 2012 11:01 PM by Gatchum_Bye-Bye

Oh yeah! Tsukimonogatari. Glad to see that the monogatari series is still really popular.

Oct 5, 2012 10:45 PM by kezthepieman

I didnt really like bokura ga ita I feel like too many people got hurt in the process of the main characters getting together, Boku no Hatsukoi is a much better sad romance story.

Do you know where I can buy the raws for suki desu btw, I dont know many websites for buying raw manga.

I agree kimi is accessible to really both guys and girls and its lighthearted in drama compared to other shojos. For that reason I dont mind it being first its a solid good romance but not the best imo. However suki desu being up there is a bit wtf for me..


Yeah, it has a balanced cast, and "normal" looking guys too, which is a win-win situation for both audiences, and there isn't the complicated harem stuff and crap like that, the canon couple is obvious (There are some complications though, you know, typical jealousy, love rival stuff ,etc), it's also pretty much the same for Bokura ga ita.

trust me, when you go "wtf" over and over again with these lists, at one point you just don't care lol
