Oh, so that's why. Thanks for the info. Was wondering why a few years old LN (and already completed) was suddenly ranking again.
Wait for me guys ! I have planned (since several months) to buy the whole first Q series in one go in my next order in 3 weeks, so I'll participate as well~
I heard that title was awesome so I want to see that by myself~

Hmm? Why is the first volume of the Q series coming back in the ranking with 5k sales ? Did something happen?

It's ranking again because of the live-action movie adaptation that will be playing in theaters in a few days.

Happy to see Diamond no Ace, Haikyuu, SnK and No Game No Life on the list. :D

Happy to see Diamond no Ace doing well!!
DnA needs more love.

May 26, 2014 9:14 PM by little_lemon

Haikyuu!! will grow even more ^ ^, Diamond no Ace in second, very good.

May 25, 2014 9:06 PM by LeoS

Fairy Tail has been pretty good so not so surprised~. Good for Haikyuu, I'm quite fond of it myself.

Well one piece is still doing fine. Another example is dbz. It was suppose to end at frieza saga. but the mangaka extended it to end at the buu saga. And imo those two saga were better than frieza saga. If the mangaka can keep me interested than I'm fine with it.

Many mangaka has extended their series but just didn't reveal it.
Yeah, that's why I don't understand the reason why he announced (though I couldn't find the source anywhere) that he would extend his manga. If he can handle it, that's fine. SnK is monthly, monthly series will suffer more from dragging. One month of waiting and nothing happens is much worse than one week of waiting and nothing happens. :/

Im really really curious what makes New Testament so great? Looking forward to read it but, nah, my time is not worth for a light novel :/


because the build up to the epic finale of this arc has been so amazing.
no seriously, the LN of the index series are in general making more sense than the anime, also starting with the next part which season 3 would cover it will getting much more darker.
and DAT NT9. seriously, if you want, just read NT9, with this single volume touma transformed himself from a typical harem MC to an actual good character. the amount of despair and epicness in this one volume shoots through the roof

*6. 15,547 *34,026 Eromanga-sensei Vol.2

Very nice.

May 23, 2014 1:40 PM by Bananaguy

A lot of shounen manga this week. I only recognise one josei manga.

really happy for Haikyuu!!


I'm calling it now. It will be 3rd or in the top 5 at least in the first half manga sales. Iv'e calculated the sales so far for this series, and it's over 4 million in sales.


It's really well made (in my opinion), and i'm a fan of sport manga/anime so it deserve such success
