Hmm seems ive missunderstood then, my bad :D

^ I agree with everything you said, I was just explaining to the person that misunderstand Monomunu comments. I agree it's too early to say if TG will keep this up.

Not rly, SnK´s most buys and sells are due to Hype , TG has a decent story and Kaneki is one of the best constructed Main Characters i have ever seen... Blue Exorcist is nothing compared with TG neither is SnK aka the Overrated and Overhyped train


Sigh, Ok first of all the person wasn't comparing the quality of the series, he's just saying that Tokyo ghoul will not maintain these type of sales. The reason why he brought up Ao no Exocist, is because it had a huge sale when the anime aired, but the following year the sales drop significantly. That's the point he was making, at least that's what I believe.

Also about attack on titan, Before the anime was even aired this series was in the top 15/10 best selling manga since 2011, and attack on titan release its first volume in 2010, meaning it was a big hit as soon as it was out, so the sales isn't pure hype, plus the anime has ended for a year now you can't call that being just hype anymore.

I like both Tokyo ghoul and attack on titan just so you know.


TG wasn't compared with AoExorcist because of the duration of the sales boost, but about the power of the boost!

TG is selling around 20k every volume every week. AoExorcist did a similar feat. SnK is different, SnK was selling around 45k every volume every week! More than the double of TG and AoExorcist.

About the duration of the hype, AoExorcist hype was only for 1 year while SnK is going for 2 years right now. For Tokyo Ghoul we don't know yet, so it doesn't make much sense to be saying that it will be closer to AoE than Snk.

Good to see that TG is dominating, they rly messed up the anime , dont know why they keep doing this kinds of fuckery in animation industry when they have so many chapters they could just adapt from and stay true...but instead they decide "wow lets mess the events of this manga so we can have a shitty anime"

Sep 8, 2014 5:58 PM by f4b10

At this rate Tokyo Ghoul might be top 10 manga!!

Sep 8, 2014 2:55 PM by Elder_God_Noden

I do believe that after the last 2 episodes we will see another boost at Tokyo ghoul . It might not happen , that i think/hope it will .

I think he/she mean't that it's like Attack on Titan in that most of it's manga Vols are in the top 50 weekly, due to the anime.

But yeah sales can't be compared because Attack on Titan was a massive hit.

Tokyo Ghoul Manga is doing soo well, so many Vol. are in the Top 50.
I guess a second season is very likely!


They skip so much things in the anime, to be honest I don't even care if we get a second season or not.


At this point I would want a remake of the adaption since the anime is already butchered. But atlas chances are slim or it just won't happen.

Though Viz really needs to bring a physical English release of Tokyo Ghoul's manga.

27. *31,259 *,827,165 Naruto Vol.70

I guess a good cover really does make a difference :(
When Naruto was on the cover with a badass pose, that volume reached a million in a month and now look at this one :O

16. *6,575 *18,881 Kore wa Zombie desu ka? Vol.16
Where's my season 3? or at least the fight with the teacher :(

Sep 5, 2014 7:55 AM by ichii_1

Tokyo Ghoul remake, please!!
I am not watching the Anime, yet, cause it is still airing......but you know, the complains are everywhere.
The Manga is doing great, and that's nice.

Sorry but you sounds a bit optimistic, it is 600k per volume sales before anime vs 700k per volume , so it is about 15% bump up.


This is the first volume to come out since the anime started. Volume 10 topped off at around 560K. But first week sales are a big number that publishers look at. If things fly off the shelves, they are perceived as more in demand, regardless of whether the sales trickle up to the same basic numbers in the end.

This should surpass the volume 10 numbers within a week or two. It took 8 weeks for volume 10 to reach that 560K figure, btw..


Yup, pretty much this. This doesn't guarantee a second season but it IS pretty good news for the anime since the main point of an anime adapted from a manga is to promote it's source material. And Ao Haru Ride is still ranking very well in the daily rankings, so it could have a 100k second week if we're lucky. But definitely more than 50-60k second week.

Looks like Tokyo Ghoul is the best seller. I didn't know that its manga is also popular.

I saw Hataraku :D nice
