Glad to see Akane there XD
I have a dream to see Tokyo Ghoul take over the chart instead of AnT someday, but I guess it's only a dream huh.

How great about Haikyuu other than fujoshi fanservice LOL

Also can't wait to see Kangoku Gakuen get big boost after anime.

Aug 15, 2014 11:50 AM by crazymonkey00

Should break 800 K next week :O pretty good sales for all that Kaguya BS I'd say XD
*2. 590,750 619,243 Naruto Vol.70

Nisekoi is doing very well, maybe a 2nd season can happen sooner! :D
Same goes to Tegami Bachi, another season would be more than welcome!

Aug 15, 2014 3:28 AM by bittersweetlove

Attack on Titan everywhere.

Aug 15, 2014 3:10 AM by Behemoth11

The best manga's number 29. What a world.

Another reason why SnK needs to have sequel.

It's getting one.

Not really. The manga is more popular than the anime. The manga medium in general is more popular than anime.

Well, for an official sales list, probably because anime is pretty expensive in Japan.


One key reason why manga is a more popular medium than anime, is because nearly every single anime (roughly 90%) currently airing is aired during the midnight timeslot (so any theory about Akame ga Kill not selling because of its time slot does not make sense, when some of the other anime which airs around the same time have charted within the Top 50 manga).

Most anime is therefore aimed at the older male and female audience, because you'd not find many teenagers up during the midnight timeslots (roughly 10pm~4am) just to watch the majority of anime currently airing. Manga is aimed at pretty much all ages (as evident with the demographics of shoujo, shounen, seinen and josei, which only applies to manga).

Gonna check out that Prison school Manga looks interesting

Aug 15, 2014 12:43 AM by GlizzyOtaku

BTW, I suppose the presence of the first volume of Moribito Series in the top LN sales is due to the announcement of a drama adaptation of this series one week before. That's quite an impressive effect on sales considering that drama won't air before 2016.If it gets 5k sales in one week just for that, I wonder how much it will sale when the drama will effectively air.

Aug 15, 2014 12:38 AM by Zefyris

Well at least Shingeki is higher than Naruto (^_^)/

Hmm, actually no. Both manga and anime mediums are even. If you are looking only to BD sales, it doesn't show true popularity.

Manga is treated as something normal in Japan. Were people having it in their house in book slefs is normal. Anime (late night anime) is anything but popular among the general population, and that is exactly the type of anime that is popular in this site, and among anime fans. The only anime that are popular like manga, are the mainstream prime time anime, like Suzane-chan, Detective Conan, Dokuro-chan, etc.

31. *36,584 484,318 Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic Vol.22


I'm amazed that snk still sells that amount. I saw a lot of people complaining about no more "attack on titans" and I'm glad that japanese fans don't care.

Doesn't matter what everyone says about Naruto, it still sells a lot, uh?
I'm waiting for hq anime to end, but if the anime is good the manga must be better.

I'm always happy in see Magi <3 It's my favorite manga. I wonder if it will sells more when the flashback ends, I heard people from Japan weren't enjoying it much :c

Aug 14, 2014 7:56 PM by Anepg

If SAO continues selling like this we will have about 20 seasons lol

Aug 14, 2014 6:15 PM by Kenchiin
