3 slots for SnK. Damn. I figured it would have dropped a little in sales, but nah.

Haha, I like how Rosario Vampire is up there XD even though it's in 10th. I personally like it better then AOT and Deadman Wonderland.

Monster Musume continues to Kick ass! When is the anime?

Also nice to see AoT doing well.

Food Wars is still in the top 10. Such a great manga


You're talking of Monster Musume popularity in America, so it doesn't really matter where it ranks, because sales in America are really little compared of those in Japan.
Monster Musume in Japan doesn't even appear in the rankings! And to make it worse is from a small publisher. So the probability to have an anime, even though is not null, is still pretty low.

Now I want to see exact sold number of AOT. especially vol.1


It is something between 50 000 and 100 000. To get on the NY list you just have to sell a couple of hundred copies.
Here you have an example of the list with actual numbers from Bookscan which is the American equivalent of Oricon:

Kodansha USA said they'd sold over 1.5 million copies of Attack On Titan (when there were 12 volumes) so I'd guess Attack On Titan 1 has sold a bit over 100,000, maybe pushing 150,000.

Aot vol1 just wont die, really didnt expected it to return so strongly, also seems Bleach got kicked outta the list, also surprising

Anyway Go Rosario and MM!

Shokugeki no Souma on the list again. Anime adaptation in the next issue?!


My thoughts exactly. This world deserves a MasterChef/Hell's Kitchen chinese cartoon.

How does AoT: Before the Fall sell so well? Its an awful prequel!

No Regrets is very good, though.

Aug 30, 2014 9:19 AM by malvarez1

Food Wars! performance has been pretty great so far!

Aug 30, 2014 3:14 AM by TroyAndAbed

AoT dominating everyone's life.

Beautiful.~

Almost thought the volume 1 of Attack on Titan wouldn't make it this week after it being number 10 last week but nope.

Aug 29, 2014 11:27 PM by sim0n2170

Just when you thought Attack on Titan will be finally leaving this list because of the previous Week's List......It dominates again.
Shokugeki no Souma Anime adaption is bound to happen.

Aug 29, 2014 9:29 PM by Tengai

Can't wait for more food reaction eroticisms up the @ss in animation.

Aug 29, 2014 9:22 PM by Windburns

No surprises here.

Aug 29, 2014 9:12 PM by fofo808

At this point, I wouldn't even be surprised if SnS gets an anime adaptation.

Aug 29, 2014 6:20 PM by html

AoT dominated the list!
Monster Musume sold better that I thought. Anime when?
