Awesome!
I'm so happy for the following releases. Sad to see that One Piece is top 20 but #1 in being the most amused manga series ever.

Congrats to Ouran for making 10 million copies. That's really awesome.

But those numbers are drastically lower for first week sales for a Naruto release....almost 300,000 less if I recall correctly. First Bleach, then now Naruto. Just goes to show you these two series are starting to drop in popularity.



Nope, Naruto 46 was released on May 1st, so it's only been on sale for 3 days, so it's actually selling as much as usual or it's popularity has went up. Same goes for Bleach, it just had a slow start because it wasn't out 7 entire days.

Animefan009 is right.

"Life" selling more copies than the most recent volumes of JoJo, Grappler Baki, Souten No Ken, or Garouden is really depressing if one thinks about it for too long.
