Now we only need an english license of Kimi no iru machi! man, does anyone know if or when that's going to happen?


Mabye pretty sure Suzuka was licensed. But I dont think its a priority way more popular manga that still need to be licensed pretty sure it depends on the company though. Meh I prefer just reading the raws, even if it gets licensed like it takes months for them to release a volume lol.

Well, right now One Piece is getting to the climax- so of course the charts reflect that. You should've come when Fishman Island was up. I think OP was selling less then. :/

Why everytime i see this list, One Piece is at the top? I don't like that series, yet i never manage to catch it when it isn't at top. (^_^;)

Please don't tell me because its the most popular manga in Japan. I already know that, thank you very much.


Keep in mind the only reason Fairy Tail is number two this week instead of number one, is because it's first week sales are split between the regular, and the limited edition. It's total sales is 235179, which trumps One Piece's sales this week.

As for you're larger question, you apparently manage to only read the list when a new volume of One Piece has been released, or the 2-3 weeks right after that.

End of the world has a slim chance, I wouldn't count on it though.

Yep! go magi!
Im reading Fairytail and Magi, and i think Magi deserves the number 2 spot over Fairytail.

Once upon a time One Piece dreamed it was the manga king. Then it woke up... and was still manga king. One Piece still has this recurring dream to this day.

I think you just answered your own question lol

I meant as in "Will there ever be a week where One Piece is #2 instead?"

To be honest, there has to be such a huge wave in order for that to happen. Kinda like how Twilight and 50 Shades of Gray had in the US.
