Yay for Bleach and One Piece

I'm even happier to see Solanin turned into a live action film!

A lot of the reviews that the recent Bleach volumes are getting terrible reviews and many people say that they'll never buy another volume again, so it's not much of a surprise if it doesn't sell a lot.

Low sales for Bleach vol. 38. Usually first week releases of Bleach range in the 600,000. Of course, this is to be expected with how much fail Bleach has become.

Nothing else too surprising this week.
