I really hope Ace of Diamond will get an anime adaptation soon, too. =) And Silver Spoon is still doing good, keep it going Arakawa-sensei. =3

Oct 27, 2012 3:03 PM by kennikitty

I think Silver Spoon already had an anime announcement.

Oct 27, 2012 11:37 AM by Suzuku

I think this Eden no Ori is selling the best so far

Oct 27, 2012 8:35 AM by GodlyKyon

Good to see Kagerou Days in there :D
SAO as usual~ and there's Kuroko no Basket -replace- as well~

Cool! Sugar Soldier Volume 3 makes it with close to 25k copies! Its a really cute manga, I'm really happy!
And KamiHaji gets 40k in 3 days of sales. Pretty good. Now, we'll see if it charts again next week, I hope it does!

All 14 volumes of Magi were in the top 50 of the manga ranking for October 8th - 15th but this week we have only 7 of them in the list.


kurobas was like that too. from time to time, the manga volumes used to get a boost when the anime was running as far as I can remember. When some important arc like Balbad(sp) begins, I'm sure it'll come up again.

Hoping for Silver Spoon anime adaptation.

Well people can have whatever varying opinions as they may about the series, but one can't say its not successful.


in SAO's case, "successful" is an underestimation.



symbv said:

Shaft is going to adapt the whole series of -monogatari, right? So it just has to line up along with the other half a dozen novels that came before it for anime adaptation. If the anime project goes well for those novels, it will eventually come to Tsuki.

As for Silver Spoon, it has already won multiple manga awards including the prestigious Manga Taishou ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manga_Taish%C5%8D ) and received favorable reviews in many places. It is one of those manga that are popular with both critics and general readers.

BTW, finally half of the Magi manga are now out of the top 50 list....


Lol i expect them all to sell well, i feel relieved that they're gonna adapt em all.

Silver Spoon must get an anime adaption soon, it has to lol

and what's that about magi? i didn't get that part lol

Arghhh... SAO v9 fails to chart again for the 4th week in a row. I wonder where it's at now, lol?

Last 4 week's thresholds were:
24.09-30.09 / 6,208
01.10-07.10 / 6,024
08.10-14.10 / 6,965
15.10-21.10 / 5,073

Imagine if it missed out by a few hundred or so every week? v8 was found to be below the threshold by 94 in the Oct 1-7 week...
