good to see conan at first
also nice sales for kingdom ,anime effect?
still doing good after 3 weeks ,it is a great series. i wish one of the next volumes reaches 1million before it gets an adaption.

Also is there anyone hoping that SnK anime ends? I don't like the fact that every week the majority of posts here and elsewhere are all on it -yes it is great series and i like both anime and manga- but there are also other great manga that needs recognition.

like hell the authors actually care what is written here all they care about ranking/sales.i am just saying my opinion.

July 15th:

First time weekly totals have gone up since early June. Impressive.
Most likely because July 8th was week affected by recap episode. SnK restored the interest with next episode.

What's amazing, SnK simply refuses to fall out of top30.
Three weeks in row the worst selling Titan volume is still #30. What a peculiar coincidence.
was the last week with Titan volume outside of top30.

14 *,*41,248 *,*41,248 Again!! Vol.9

This is one my favourite on-going high school manga, it is still tracking consistently with the previous series. Talented female author took a stab at this genre.

12 *,*41,719 *,*41,719 Rin Vol.2

From the creator of Beck, I guess this is doing alright sales wise.

*1, 34,630 296,263 Juuni Kokuki Hisho no Tori - Shinchou Bunko Edition

I'm pleased.

Needless to say, the SnK phenomenon is great to behold. It's taking Japan by storm and out selling many traditional power house.

Green-lit anime boost? First time I see this ranked...

Edit: Oh wait. It's in its first week lol

All the volumes of Shingeki no Kyojin are doing as well as ever.

I'm very pleased that Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou Volume 3 managed to get into the top 30, I must admit that I wasn't expecting to make the top 50. I'm very happy that it's selling well. =)

I can only imagine how much the 10th Volume Shingeki no Kyojin will sell when it's released. I'd be surprised if it doesn't sell at least a million.

Um... I assume you meant volume 11? Because volume 10 info was on page 1:
11 *,*43,914 1,345,174 Shingeki no Kyojin Vol.10

1.85 million first run copies of volume 11 were printed:

Very happy to see this here. Before this started I used to think the author was a "one-hit wonder", but this one is proving me wrong. It's a very unusual manga with a peculiarly slow progression (in that sense it feels a bit like his magnum opus Beck in the first few volumes).
The plot may seem very typical on the surface but I honestly have no idea where the plot is going, since it mixes two completely different ideas. The two main characters are a girl who has supernatural powers that allow her to talk to the dead and a beta teenager who's aiming to become a mangaka, funny thing is, they aren't together for the most of the story, their meeting wasn't a fated incredible meeting and the story has been focusing more on the guy trying to become a mangaka - by the way his stories are somewhat hilarious even though you don't see them completely, he made a oneshot about a savate expert who's a freeloader and has been getting two-timed by a snack girl, he ends up setting fire to a french restaurant.

I'm also happy to see Wagatsuma-san and Monster Musume doing well.

First off, thanks for finally posting the news.

SnK is still doing exceptionally well given the number of weeks it's been doing so already. And I'm pleased to see Silver Spoon having such good sales as well. I've finished catching up to the manga just recently and it was really worth it.

I just realized. If you put the volumes in order, each volume has less and less sales. Volume 10 will probably hit 1.3 Volume 11 1.2 Volume 12 1.1 Volume 13 1.1.Volume 14 1.0 etc. At this rate it's going a little less than 100k per book. Maybe it's because of how long each book was on the market? Either way, it's still less and less.

I think is logical - everybody starts reading it (or sampling it) with the vol.1 and as each volume goes it can only go down in sales because of the boring story, plot developments or whatever makes someone drop a manga.

But the constant negative trend is something troubling. I wonder when will the sales stabilise.

Or simply that they haven't got around to buying the later volumes yet?

Plus the drop from v7 to v10 is only 80k and dropping week by week. This is in no way a troubling situation.
