I expect we'll see more of this as there will be more GirlPan guidebooks or art books to come.

Other than Fushugi Yuugi Genbu Kaiden and Boku to Kanojo no XXX, I seriously don't care about this week at all.

*1, 227,244 *,227,244 Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic Vol.17

May 30, 2013 11:16 AM by Newhopes

Good to see SAO 12 still continue to chart.


I really hope you`re sarcastic.

Sword Art Online still selling.. >.>
What's so surprising about it? The novel is quite good. Can't say much about anime other than character design being atrocious enough to make me swear I'll never watch this sorry excuse of an adaptation. Rot in hell A-1 and Adachi...


Really? I could never get the hype about SAO and yes, I read the novels before the anime was even announced.
The series was mediocre at best with the exception of a few good volumes (5-7).

*1, 39,536 131,311 Toaru Majutsu no Index: New Testament vol.7


Haha. Glad to see Index NT still selling strongly. Too bad the sales have been decreasing since NT3. Oh well...that just means the fans who have been expecting romcom have been weeded out.

Romantica Clock <3
Twincest for the win :3

Good to see Hataraku maou sama!.
Seems like more and more ppl finally see the depth in Yahari.

*1, 227,244 *,227,244 Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic Vol.17

Not bad Magi but it feels like forever since a new volume came out.

*3, 186,248 *,186,248 Terra Formars Vol.5

Can't believe this manga is selling so well i won't be surprise if they make an anime .

*6, *87,557 *,*87,557 Diamond no Ace Vol.36

Also selling well it's no wonder their an anime coming soon.

*7, *82,157 *,*82,157 Hajime no Ippo Vol.103

Still waiting for a couple a raw chapters to be sub.

*1, 39,536 131,311 Toaru Majutsu no Index: New Testament vol.7

Glad to see that its still selling strong, would really like another season after the new movie.

Magi, SnK, BTOOOM!, Toaru NT, Horizon, Hataraku and Oregairu are all selling really well. I expect the Magi volume to sell even more since the current arc is just that good.

May 29, 2013 12:53 PM by Rachmaninow

Terra Formars sells well!!
Good not so much as others, but something is something

Why is LDK selling so well?! it's nothing new in the shoujo world! maybe rooming up with hotties is the dream trend among young girls in Japan right now...


Agreed. It's an ok shoujo but there's nothing super special about it.
Che. Hope Volume 1 deserves the sales L-DK got...

YAY! Magi :333

May 29, 2013 4:58 AM by kanbe

Magi Goooo, ye.

May 29, 2013 4:23 AM by Ramkec

HAH! nice one magi! :D

May 29, 2013 3:44 AM by snuffless

Damn it. HOPE Volume 1 by Suenobu Keiko didn't rank?! I can't believe that crappy shoujo manga called Ato Nimo Saki Mo Kimi Dake actually sold well but HOPE didn't.
I am disappointed.
