You're right that Akame ga Kill is NOT doing as well as Tokyo Ghoul or Nozaki-kun in that department. It would be better for it if its 10 volumes were in the top 50 list every week like Ghoul.

However, its last volume came out in June so it is too early to say that it didn't receive any manga sales bump at all. The sales of the next volume will tell us that.

Wasn't Tokyo ghoul's last volume also come out in june?
I'm not sure,though
Yes, you're absolutely right. It came out on June 20th. In fact both came out at the same time. However as you can see from their first week sales:
*2 ** *,147,915 *,147,915 **1 4 Tokyo Ghoul Vol.12 (東京喰種トーキョーグール 12)
...
49 ** *,*19,328 *,*19,328 **1 2 Akame ga Kiru! Vol.10 (アカメが斬る! 10)

Ghoul sold 148K in its first week after 4 days while AgK sold only 19K after 2 days. Perhaps a fairer comparison after 2 weeks:
*9 *2 *,*75,856 *,223,771 **2 * Tokyo Ghoul Vol.12 (東京喰種トーキョーグール 12)
...
30 49 *,*32,886 *,*52,214 **2 * Akame ga Kiru! Vol.10 (アカメが斬る! 10)

224K vs. 52K after two weeks. So as the sales turn into a trickle, the relative size of the trickle of Ghoul sales are much larger than Akame ga Kill. The trickle of Ghoul is still large enough to rank while AgK may still be selling but not enough to rank in the rather short Top 50 Manga list. This week's trickle in week 7:
27 39 *27,704 384,424 **7 * Tokyo Ghoul Vol.12 (東京喰種トーキョーグール 12)

Compared to AgK which only ranked for 2 weeks.

Ghoul was a much bigger seller to begin with so it is going to rank for longer. However, I don't think you can deny that Ghoul's anime is doing a great job at bringing in new fans to the manga, adding 23K sales to v1 this week alone:
39 42 *22,995 443,288 *82 * Tokyo Ghoul Vol.1 (東京喰種トーキョーグール 1)

We shall see soon what the real Ghoul boost looks like. Ghoul v13 comes out on August 20th.

Not sure when AgK v11 comes out but their release schedule is longer due to it being monthly so November/December is likely. That will show us the real effect of the AgK anime on the manga sales.

Still less than 500,000 copies sold, Magi. Guess that shows how badly received the flashback really is. Sadly, deservedly so.

Maybe the anime hype wore off.

But I did hear complaints from the latest chapters of Magi.

Excellent...Too bad the TG adaption could have been even better though which would have improved the sales even more.

GG for Noragami and Haikyuu
