Wish MAL was faster. As always ANN had this week's manga results up yesterday and LNDB had the LNs up too.
But at least MAL covers the "other books" chart too (at least until now). Only small comfort though, I know....

25. *,*33,237 *,*33,237 Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio Vol.8

I'm curious how much did previous volumes sold in first week compared to last volume, does anybody knows numbers?
Did it got anime boost, seeing that anime is quite popular?
The last volume, vol.7, did not even make the chart when it was released back in May, which means it sold <19033 the first 5 days of release. This week, it sold 33237 in the first 5 days.

Now I remember someone mentioned earlier in this forum that the anime has done nothing to the manga sales but the fact is that he just failed to recognize that the boost is noticeable only when a new volume is out (unless it is super-popular title like Shingeki). The actual reality is probably that Aoki Hagane got the most boost to its manga sales measured by proportion.


Than you.
Yes in this case boost is really noticeable. Even if we assume that last volume missed threshold just by 1 sale it still 75% increase compared to previous volume. Also probably big part of new people who bought latest volume this week also bought all previous volumes, it's just unlike with SnK that wasn't shown in weekly charts.

I don't know how typical is SnK showing anime boost (i don't talk about amount that's is really atypical:)) But from it seems that if someone decides to buy manga because of anime he is buying everything in bulk mostly not only first or last volume.
SnK total sales during April 15 to October13 period where:
v1 1195160
v2 1169292
v3 1155958
v4 1147365
v5 1153555
v6 1152735
v7 1160097
v8 1201277
v9 1221486
Only first and last two volumes sold little more than v4, but compared to total sales that difference is really small. Especially since for v9 part of this difference could be people who where just lazy to bought it earlier.

Seems they finally fixed restock issues.
Excited to see year end figures soon.

I love seeing the numbers that One Piece is able to dish out. As someone who is caught up to the anime and the manga it is easy to see why.

The Anime-related book list is missing one book
Thanks for this!

It's been awhile since iv'e seen Fairy Tail sales at 400k+ and still counting, way to go for it. The volume was very good. Hopefully this will spark the anime's continuation to come faster. ;_;

for the past 5 years I remember one piece never failed to be number 1 in its first week


One Piece is so popular in japan


As expected of one of Holy Shounen Trinity, my hopes for Fairy Tail to take One Piece throne is vanishing already....
