yay, SAO all the way

People praising Mahouka so much? Is it really that good? Cause from the synopsis it loos like your another action harem with powerfull but totally uninteresting protag. Hope it's at least close to SAO in terms of story and characters.

i am confused of sort by these rankings

each week series change position . these rankings are of VOLUMES[previous ones]

what about weekly chapter releases?
shouldn't rankings based on them?

i assume yearly rankings show which manga is most sold and popular among masses.


Chapters aren't sold separately - most of them are part of a magazine which may contain 20 or more different series in it.

So you can't have a ranking of all chapter releases.

*7, *90,556 *,489,834 Bleach Vol.57

:> Seems like the new arc is going to be more interesting.

Dec 24, 2012 5:35 AM by zenith_kim94

Seems like Bleach is doing pretty good after the "Shitbringer Arc". I wonder if it is as bad as the Anime version.

When I catch up to it, I will know.

Good to see Oda Nobuna no Yabou on there, even if it is a gaiden.

Dec 23, 2012 11:17 PM by kuuderes_shadow

At least, Ansatsu Kyoushitsu is still in Top 50.

Shingeki no Kyojin strong

Dec 23, 2012 7:32 PM by Amarrez

Working my way through Stroboscope. And Umimachi Diary 5 is the one that was released this week, not 2.

It sold out completely.

They weren't expecting it to be such a hit.

Go Chihayafuru! I didn't know there is a light novel as well.
It's about the characters in middle school.

I wanna cry.
....but the reason is that it seems to be extremely difficult in Japan to find it in stock.

Dec 23, 2012 1:20 PM by leokiko

As I predicted in previous topic SAO # 11 crossed 200k very quickly (similiar rate with SAOP1, even higher a little).

No Onepunchman unfortunately.
Claymore decent, the end is near.
