Just noticed that there was no "Another Episode S" this week. Don't see it anywhere on Oricon. Too bad...

One Piece at #1 by a large margin, not surprised the new volume is pretty awesome.

Wow never thought I'd see Bleach in the top 5 again. Maybe we can finally get that anime adaptation of the last arc.


Bleach is good enough to get top 5. i hope it can sales better next week.

Always nice to see One Piece at the top.
But even this is impressive. 1.5 million sales in 3 days.
Anyone think it can hit 3 million in the next week?



It probably won't. I think recently the volumes have hit the 2.8 mark and not much after. Usually the first few days have crazy insane sales and then day by day sales quickly drop. BUT, these sales that drop are still pretty good. It's just that most people apparently buy almost immediately when it comes out.

I think it won't hit 3 million until an EPIC volume comes out. I personally think this volume's content is worthy of hitting that peak, but from what I've seen online it's 50 50 shot of it doing so.

Ooo, this one managed to pass 10k. Might be to do with Love Live! still steadily gaining fans as indicated by its sales of the previous BD volumes...

Next Diary out is Nishikino Maki on August 30!

can anyone tell me how many 1st week sells is considered 'good' for a manga?
i also like that to know
It depends on the expectation, right? One Piece selling less than 1 million would not be considered good, but I am sure every other manga would love to sell even half a million. To be honest, EVERY title that make up in the list published by Oricon (and posted in the news threads here) should be considered to have good sales because there are simply a lot more manga published every week than the titles listed here. So only those titles which are on the top of the competition managed to be charted. So there you go.

wow so one piece sold 1.5million copies in 3 days? thats pretty impressive.

Aug 10, 2013 4:58 PM by Nightwing

I'm glad Blade Dance still on the list.

Aug 10, 2013 4:39 PM by NeoAnkara

Yay for High Speed and Sukinayo!! I think Sukinayo got a higher manga boost (despite the anime selling crap) than Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun
