So glad to see Btooom! doing well. There may be hope for a continuation yet.

doing well over here

More Darkness, yay! I wonder what its final numbers in mid or yearly rankings will be. Vol6 is at 383k already (73k sold bundled with OVA), threshold for 2012 top100 was 377k and we all know how manga sell quite much even if they don't show up in rankings. I hope Darkness will cross 2M total for 2013 as well with boost to older volumes provided by anime.

Naruto is getting closer to HxH, both should reach 1M soon.

Yea-uh son!!! Natsume Yuujinchou volume 15 is #1!
That's how Midorikawa-sensei rolls!!!
.. Ahem, sorry...
^_^
However, that news was worthy of gangster-style praise.

Glad to see Natsume doing well.

Jan 21, 2013 8:40 PM by Renzokuken

Jan 21, 2013 12:42 PM by hiromee

Probably too late but I just sent a PM.
Unfortunately DHL didn't bring my copy until Wednesday for me to read it myself and the CrazyJapan tweet had already been quoted a zillion times by then. In my experience you can't put djinns back in lamps but we can try...


It's probably a miss-translation from Japanese to French, and French to English. MAL needs more mods who are able to read Japanese and do research on Japanese websites.
I'm happy to see Btoom! big bump

The cheese is smelly but the wine is good ;)

Well i am glad to the that Haikyuu is doing well, though i still don't understand. Naruto has many more sales that the top 3 but why is it only in fourth place? Same goes for Hunter X Hunter

*1, *,135,185 *,363,130 Natsume Yuujinchou Vol.15
*2, *,127,385 *,127,385 Sukitte Ii na yo. Vol.10
*3, *,118,829 *,118,829 Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun Vol.11
*4, *,*93,181 *,954,885 Naruto Vol.63
*5, *,*79,139 *,963,013 Hunter x Hunter Vol.32


The order is determined by this week's sales in the second column, not by total sales in the third column.

I agree with you. Perhaps it's a bit late but it is better than nothing done. At least we'd have one fewer inaccurate piece of news in MAL record. Thanks for sending the PM !

That's a misquote of the last page of the volume that just came out so it can't be the cause and isn't even true... It says the climax is coming! It does NOT say volume 12 will be the last one. Terrible misquote..
Do you think we should inform the moderator who posted this thread: http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=545301 Otherwise, the false news may just take root and keep spreading. Sites or blogs may quote this news forum and the "news" just spreads out....
