*Yawn* Majority of these mangas are slice of life and/or romance comedies. With top sellers like this, and the uninspired Blu-ray/Dvd sales list, it really isn't a surprise why I barely read manga and watch anime these days. Seriously, Gin no Saji #1, tonari [insert name here] following and a ton of other bore fests, I'd find as much entertainment from this list as all my children or general hospital.

well..
like everyone had expected
and this is it the result..

This time Shounen manga solds very good.

I'm glad that Gin no Saji is doing great, just waiting for the season 2 to finish airing before I watch it <3

I added Otoyomegatari and Kyou no Kira-kun on my plan to read :3

And Tonari no Kaibutsu kun still isn't over after volume 13!!!!

April 11th there will be a Tonari no Kaibutsu kun illustration book by Robico.

Erm. Didn't it end on vol. 12?
...
The main story ended at the end of volume 12. Then the "Bangaihen" side stories started but it is interesting that this volume is not called Bangaihen volume 1 and the cover doesn't even say Bangaihen though the chapters in Dessert monthly magazine certainly did. Anyway, I am happy for this one.

Sakarea! Love this story, been a long wait for volume 9.

BTOOOM! 13. Thought it was almost over... but no.

Lipogra! is an amazing Nisioisin novel. I am sad that it barely ranked. Come on, this is Nisioisin writing a lipogram with like 15 guest light novel and manga illustrators doing the drawings! It is really cool on so many levels, the story, the art, the lipogram rules. Completely untranslatable unless you wanted to make it into an English lipogram but just about the coolest play on Japanese language while simultaneously writing a neat Nisioisin story and having illustrators including Peach Pit do some of the drawings.

I'm not familiar with the magazine Tegami Bachi is in, so can anybody know if these sales indicate that the manga is in danger of getting axed? I'm just paranoid since scanlation recently resumed and I don't want it getting axed before the story finally finishes out.


The sales are good, not great (it's not exactly one of the magazines 5 best sellers) but still good and I think no magazine except Jump would consider those sales to be bad enough to axe the series. But I have to say, most series "cool down" after the anime ends if there are no subsequent seasons. A lot of authors prefer to bring the series to a natural end if they see no chance of an anime follow-up ( and consequentially no rise in popularity until the end of the series) and just move on to a new series. But obviously I'm generalizing a lot.

It ended with just one volume or did you forget to post the number?


Yeah, I believe you should add " (1) - Time to Play " to the title like the cover of the book. Btw, forgot to mention before but this is officially the longest LN title to date.
