Meh, that's nothing compared to some titles that have sold 800,000 and above 1,000,000 in their first week.

I bought Koibana vol 4 last week, it's fun. I see that the mei-chan manga is getting another bump thanks to the drama. I bought volume 1 of the manga when it first came out, but haven't picked up any of the later volumes. Maybe next time I am at a book-off. I bet they'll be stuck in the $3 section though @_@ I should probably get Dengeki Daisy vol 4 soon too.
