Bleach still sell well? Oh my god.

As always, amazing feeling seeing One Piece on top - that's exactly where it belongs.
Also, can't wait to see sales of Tokyo Ghoul volume 14.Hopefully numbers are going to be big.Ishida deserves it!

And several volumes of Tokyo Ghoul are in the Top 50 probably because the manga has finished.


Not really. Tokyo Ghoul was in the Top 50 weeks before the "manga was ending" announcement. The anime actually has to boost the manga for it to appear in the Top 50. Look at Akame ga Kill, the boost was not enough for it to appear in the weekly top 50 manga.

^ probably because AGK is sh!tty outside of the gore and Esdeath :)

Nanatsu no Taizai getting an anime adaptation soon, but none of the volumes even rank in the Top 50?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_The_Seven_Deadly_Sins_manga_volumes

So it's because the latest volume was released 3 months ago (while the latest volume of World Trigger was just released this month).

And several volumes of Tokyo Ghoul are in the Top 50 probably because the manga has finished recently.

Nice to see World Trigger there though, which is also getting an anime adaptation soon, despite ranking at #30.

Really nice to see SAO still on tops. :)

Wow, Mahouka boost much?!! 127k in one weak, wow, that's incredible.

We will see who have the last laugh when the end of the year manga sales results are out.


(sigh)

Why are people trying to make a competition out of this?

The two mangas couldn't be any more different.

For the record, I like One Piece more than Attack on Titan but I think Attack on Titan will have the higher number of sales this year. One Piece sales have reached saturation point.

Also, those are some nice sales for Kamachi's new series Mitou Shoukan:// Blood-Sign. It seems to have been received quite well.


I like both series as well.

Let's do some math XD

Last showed SNK rankings
1,653,516 normal edition (w6) + 209,744 limited edition (w2)= 1,863,270 total

Limited edition fell out of the ranking in it's 3rd week meaning it sold less than 24 K (the cut off line)
20K (more or less) x 4 weeks = 80K
1,863,270 + 80,000 = 1,943,270

In short One Piece 10 days sales >>> SNK 6 weeks sales ;)
