New anime season when?

This LN isn't tailored to be adapted as an anime. Too much infodump and the arcs are 7 times longer than most LN arcs (which usually last one volume of 300 pages).
They did two season to adapt the shortest arcs but I doubt you'll ever see a new arc adapted.

I added World Trigger, Koi dano Ai dano, and Soul Catcher(S) on my plan to read :3
Nice list btw.

Shokugeki no Souma looks strong wonder if an anime adaption will be announced next year or something

*2. 187,870 *,187,870 Shokugeki no Souma Vol.6

Is this the first time Noucome appeared on the list? Either way I'm happy it's doing well!
No, volume 4 ranked once when the anime was announced back in April and volume 6 ranked once when the anime started but at most about 6-7K so it has now achieved 3x the sales of before the anime so I'd say mission accomplished there. Just wish the disc sales were better...

Getting back on the charts at all is fairly impressive, and fairly rare for manga with the thresholds where they are. We've seen lots of series that only showed off their sizable anime bump 3 months after it aired. Most notably Kamisama Hajimemashita/Kamisama Kiss, where the first new post-airdate volume picked up negligible gains after the first 3 episodes had aired, and the series only exploded a couple of months later: http://animetics.files.wordpress.com/2013/12/kamisama-hajimemashita.png

What are you talking about? Like torisunanohokori said, getting back into the charts is quite impressive. Getting a boost like SnK is extremely rare, if that's what you were expecting. I'd say volume 1 and 2 making it back into the chart when WCW, ImoCho, Sakura Trick and even Nisekoi didn't come back into the chart is pretty amazing.

I'd say the anime has done it's job.

Well I guess I was expecting too much out of it after getting used to the SnK boost, 12k looks minimal in comparison, but yeah now that I think about it, 12k is a lot.

Manga
*1. 203,161 *,203,346 Gintama Vol.53
*2. 187,870 *,187,870 Shokugeki no Souma Vol.6
*4. *60,815 *,*60,815 World Trigger Vol.4

Great to see these up there.

34. *14,981 *,*14,981 Watashi ni xx Shinasai! Vol.14

Hadn't realised this was still going, thought it was only a 6 or so volume series. Should start reading again.

*9. *31,141 *,*31,141 Mahouka Koukou no Yuutousei Vol.3
26. *19,881 *,*19,881 Triage X Vol.8

Really should start reading these two.

Nice to see maid sama in there :D^_^ aww but no nisekoi i swear i saw it on the last rankings if so then its ashame that its dropping in sales :):P⌒.⌒


Nah, it's definitely not dropping in sales in any possible way at the moment, since it has the anime advertising itself. My guess is that you probably misread and Nisekoi isn't on sale, which is probably true since from my observations, Nisekoi goes on sale at same intervals as Haikyuu, Toriko and Beelzebub.

-----------------

My boy Gintama on top! Followed by my second boy, Shokugeki!

Yuru Yuri doing nicely! And Yorakuza selling about 40k ish, which is fine.

Noragami getting a small nice boost to its previous volumes, nice.

Shingeki volume 11 probably passed the 2 million mark already, since I remember it had a special edition released too.

Same goes for Shingeki 12, probably almost at that 2 million mark already.

Off topic:.... I have a random urge o say World "N*gger" instead of Trigger.... Hehehe.

Yea probley i did misread it
:P

Yes for Shokugeki no Soma! My favorite new manga.

Amazon has all volumes in stock. Honto has them all listed as available within 1-3 days.

No signs of any stock problems.


On shosei ranking, WCW volume 1 ranked at #148 for Feb 3- Feb 9. Noragami volume 1 and 2 placed #37 and #38 respectively. I'd say you'd have to be in the top 40 on shosei ranking to rank on the Oricon top 50.

Considering the disc pre-orders I'm surprised that WCW hasn't got a manga boost yet. Must check to see if its in stock or if they pulled a common but stupid tactic of making anime with no back issues in stock.

WCW belonged to a much lower tier of sales (~30k first weeks, not ranking after) than Noragami beforehand, so they could have stocked back issues that were >50% of the typical Oricon total of the series and still not charted if the sales were sufficiently spread out over a couple weeks. I wouldn't be surprised if this is like Azazel-san and we have to wait until v7 comes out in July to see visible effects.

Feb 13, 2014 8:13 AM by Torisunanohokori

As always, it feels awesome to see Gintama on top :D well deserved.
Noragami got a little boost up, which is great to see as well.

*7. 12,577 *12,577 Kyoukaisenjou no Horizon Vol.16
New anime season when?
*1. 54,907 358,724 Biblia Koshodou no Jiken Techou Vol.5

This is definitely impressive for Noragami.

I don't think Sakura Trick or Mikakunin have ever ranked though I'm not sure that large format 4-koma seinen is considered manga by Oricon for sales ranking purposes.
