So... How good is this new Kindaichi? The quality seems to be hopping like bunnies on summer evening. Guess ill get it anyway.


If you mean the Shin series, then I'll agree. File > Case > Shin in my opinion.

I bought a couple of volumes of Shin, it would give you your fix of whodunit but there won't be any stand-out cases. Kindaichi will also again meet his old nemisis, you know who, in one of the case. Have not read some of the latest volume of Shin though.
Yea that's what I mean. Oh well...

Great to see TLRD manga selling amazingly. Couple that with anime disc sales, and another season is pretty much guaranteed once there's enough material.

Any idea how Btooom! is doing? I'm guessing not well since it isn't listed but here's hoping.


Hardly surprising that it isn't listed since the last volume came out in September. Next one comes out on 9th January and is currently ranked 154th out of comics on Amazon. Make of that what you will.

Of course, that's assuming you're talking about the manga. If you're referring to the anime, you're on the wrong thread.


was talking about the manga. Thank you for the info

Manga:

4, *117,751, *118,579 Kindaichi Shounen no Jikenbo 20th Anniversary vol.3
16, *59,577, *60,053 Baby Steps vol.24
36, *36,904, *36,904 Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo vol.4


Really like these 3 series, good sales but it won't hurt to be much higher. Think Yamada did 15k+ better than previous volume for the first week.

As far as I'm concerned, these 3 have consistent quality and are stand-out in their genre. Will see how 'Again!!'chart for the next few weeks.

TLRD sales is amazing. Glad to see Kami Nomi sell well too.

What is Detective Conan doing there? The series has lost its direction since 500 chapters ago and probably will take another 500 more to figure out what the plot originally was.

[/rant]

its direction is murder mysteries?

Implying it was ever anything else is ignoring all reality.

also as far I've heard it's had the most consistent direction in years so your complaint doesn't even make sense in that regard

11, *9,771 *,100,854 Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei vol.8

woo. Mahouka doing well. Hope it gets animated. Kirito can learn a few things from a BAMF like Tatsuya.



Well, when that happen be ready you body for shitstorm to come.
OP+"I know all"+failure male main lead, wincest from the start and cliche setting (use magic with tool, the magic academy with only 7 or 9 in entire Japan).

Dec 31, 2012 8:34 PM by squall2be

Mmmm Mahouka... would like to see an adaptation. Got teased by Accel World. Oh well.

The characters is what really matter in mangas ^^

Nice to see Conan on the top as well as Ace of Diamond. On the novel side seeing Youkai, Iris, and Mahouka up there is good. I think I am interested in checking out Biblia Koshodou no Jiken Techou now.
