Oh Wow...Vampire Knight is really selling well again. I´m sure the high sales can be blamed on latest chapters.

Zero sells

Very glad to see Onepunchman. I hope it's only beginning, manga is epic.

I think SAO 11 will reach 200k sales pretty soon.

*1, 684,299 *,684,299 Hunter x Hunter Vol.31


I'm glad for HxH, I hope Togashi gets on the mood to write something after seeing how many people support his work.

Dec 17, 2012 2:44 PM by kratos_aurion

Im ust say that it's nice to see HxH back on the list and on top. Also last volume of hitman reborn did well in total this manga did pretty good you will be miss.

Finally! :'D

O_o i didn't thought Bleach will be higher than Shingeki no Kyojin and KuroBasu higher than Bleach (at least for this week)

Dec 17, 2012 1:24 PM by NoBleachNoLife

Nice to see Kurobas on the 2nd place (:
Also One Punch Man

Dec 17, 2012 1:14 PM by hiromee

SAO selling nearly 70k copies already? Sounds about right. Now keep rising, oh you magic number and reach for the 100k.

Wish One Punch-Man had sold more.
It actually sold out on both Amazon and Honto, so it'll sell much more once it gets reprinted. I guess they underestimated how much it would sell.

Are you serious? O.O

Dec 17, 2012 10:57 AM by leokiko

bleach boosted hard :p

one piece did bad :( for 6 days

Once again I wonder what the Japanese see in series such as Mahouka as the protagonists sound very generic. Well, they all do buy SAO as well.
Well, nothing more generic than your comment that "the Japanese all do buy SAO" as if it is the only thing they all buy.

25, *40,856 *,*40,856 One Punch-Man Vol.1

I hope the good HxH sales will make the HxH anime stay for a longer while.

Responses at the 1st volume of the novel was very good. It sucks you in the story's setting that is hard to stop following. It was very intriguing in its own way.

And it will be interesting to see how the sales for SnK will develop once the anime starts airing.

Dec 17, 2012 8:46 AM by Nidhoeggr

KuroBasu going hard yeah.

Dec 17, 2012 7:43 AM by Ramkec

Nothing interesting and a lot is manga shounen (yet, the only shoujo manga I saw was vampire knight)

Dec 17, 2012 6:17 AM by minimiau

Hunter x Hunter in the top

Dec 17, 2012 4:53 AM by azaz1212

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei is always ranking so well. Bet there will be an anime adaption one day.

Dec 17, 2012 4:48 AM by MillaMaxwell
