Fairy Tail ahead of One Piece is really depressing.


*1. 263,367 *,264,076 Fairy Tail Vol.38
*3. 141,208 2,559,632 One Piece Vol.70

I think you need to take a closer look.

260k Sales for its week. While One Piece is still averaging a 140k ratio+ a week with 2.5M total sales.

Still, it's depressing. How's FT still selling so well

All right, Highschool DxD!

This amazed me... It was not really a good volume, not as good as some of other awesome Fairy Tail chapters.

And nobody cares about Nanatsu No Taizai selling really good for a new series...
I am glad it does, though. NnT is a good fantasy series and an anime will surely attract a lot of people in a few years if it continues like this.


All the plot devices in Nanatsu No Taizai do not excite me in anyway. Is it just me? I guess I've seen those plot devices enough times then.


In the 15 manga you have completed (including Berserk)?
I agree that some of the twists are standard fare, but the characters are good, the author already included a lot of freshadowing and the scope of the whole thing seems to be rather big. We haven't even seen all main characters yet so I wait until the first major arc kicks off before re-evaluating it.


Sure, I'm still following it.
And dude, I gave up on updating my read list on the 1st day I set up my MAL account. (still rating some completed animes though)

Just in time for the new season of Highschool DxD !!


It's always nice to see high school dxd selling.

This season should be good. Will Issei add to his harem? Will Issei continue to use dress break? Will there be lots of ecchi, action, and comedy?

Of course there will be and I am excited. I'll see you in the episode discussions symbv : )


Oh yeah! Thats just like eye candy. Cant wait also!!!!!! >.<

Vol 37 of Fairy Tail sold 291k in 5 days.
Vol 38 of Fairy Tail sold 263k in 7 days.

Did they both have LE versions? Would need to compare totals with those as well.

*1. 263,367 *,264,076 Fairy Tail Vol.38
16. *58,568 *,*78,913 Fairy Tail Vol.38 Special Edition with DVD


Ah right, I didn't spot that. There wasn't a sudden unexpected drop then.

Jul 1, 2013 6:14 AM by kuuderes_shadow

Fairy Tail on top?? o_O

While I think that FT is a good manga, the most recent arc was lackluster IMO. I dunno... I'm kinda surprised, I guess.

Jul 1, 2013 6:03 AM by Bigbuffoon

Nothing that I care too much about but oh well. I'm happy that One Piece,DxD and Ore no imouto are doing well(because I plan watching & maybe reading it really soon).

Surprised to see Kimi no Iru Machi actually making the rankings... I don't see how the readers there haven't been punching holes in their walls with the way the story has been for the past, whole lotta chapters.

On the bright side, KamiNomi being high up gives me more hope for the third anime season.

DxD sucks...but sex sells in this world


DXD Novels story is great so I think you can guess what I think of that statement.

It's nice to see DXD sales and popularity steadly increasing because that and Madan no ou to vanadis are some of the most enjoyably novels I've read in a long while.
