Not surprised to see Beelzebub slowly falling off of chart. Most readers on Batoto and mangareader have been complaining about repetitiveness and tired comedy, and the number of users dropping the manga is reaching alarming rate. At this rate, without any adv or anime to bump the sales, it's going to fall from grace and get axed soon.

I have decided to finally read the Beelzebub manga, sooner or later though.

Last Game, Tegami Bachi and Tonari no Seki-kun looks good too, added on my plan to read :3

10. *66,278 *,*66,278 Beelzebub Vol.25
Very Nice. I wish Beelzebub was higher though.

I guess they will only state those in their DB. I don't believe Gosick Red sales is that bad.

Is this only a anime boost or there's something special like a special price ?
I wonder if those buying it are all new to the series.

I'm not sure why you would think that, it's selling like the previous volumes.

Nisekoi sells more than Haikyuu? Please, no. Seriously, NO.


In case you didn't know, Haikyuu volume 9 has a special Drama CD edition so sales are bound to be lower than usual. The LE Drama CD Edition probably sold around 20k or so.

+1. Nisekoi is still selling, sigh, even though I've dropped the manga and not planning to pick it back up, ever, still it's kind of hard to see that Nisekoi is running, or rather, milking.

Wow, SnK finally reached 2mil copies sold per volume, now that's one impressive feats, and there are only 2 other manga that could achieve that feats aside from SnK that is, imo, One Piece and Hunter x Hunter.

Shingeki is powerful.

It's great to see Assassination Classroom on the list again along with SnK, Haikyuu!!, and Tonari-kun! That Hunter x Hunter novel number kinda interested me though on the novel list..

Maybe the advertising of the anime gained its attention.
I think those new to the series would buy volume 1 the most rather than the last volume which is volume 4.

Jan 8, 2014 5:25 PM by Superfaraway

lol what happened, all SnK's volumes are in the japanese chart again lol, it's been quite a while since the last time xD

could it be thanks to that special TV program (Kouhaku?) emitted in the new year?

Jan 8, 2014 5:04 PM by NemuriNezumi

and somehow once again Shingeki no Kyojin all volumes are back in the top 50 damm.

Dude, how did you get that? I tried googling it, like I always do with any manga I find interesting enough to know its sales, following this set up: manga name + manga sales (sometimes. I out myanimelist too)


Use this as your Google search query:
inurl:myanimelist.net/forum "weekly manga" "seki-kun"

Then skim the results. You can try to provide a vol number too.


Guess oneechan ga kita and D frag joins the ranks of "manga whose sales didn't chart".

Shingeki still selling op!!!

Need less To say that I only get results for really popular series. So how did you find it? Tried searching for seki kun before but no results.

I want to know D Frag sales too!
