I'm really liking the nanatsu no taizai anime, good to see this boost in the manga! o/

Oct 20, 2014 5:38 PM by Helios373

It got huge advertisement because it warranted it in the first place. Warner Bros Bleach movie is never coming out, it was announced years ago and we've heard nothing since, it's just like the Cowboy Bebop movie.

They stopped making the movies because they just weren't popular enough to keep making them like the anime. They all made about $6-7 million that's it.

I remember that DB sold over 150 million volumes while only having two thirds the amount of volumes as Bleach. I also remember how Battle of Gods outgrossed the four Bleach movies put together even though it's manga had finished 17 years prior.

I understand your pain, dude. Bleach is a greatest series and deserves better sales than every other manga combine.

What went through your mind to come to this conclusion? seriously XD

@scabab, yeah and with HUGE advertisemnt but doesn't make a difference does it?
Dragonball evolution :O enough said.

And Warner Bros is holding the Bleach movie rights hostage, that's why no new movies are coming out, otherwhise it would be making tens of millions by now :) based on each movie earning more than the last one.

Good to see Gintama in the top 10

I don't think that's what he meant at all.

Remember when Bleach used to be able to sell over 550K Week 1? And now this volume only sells 350K by Week 2...man this series fell hard.

Rmember when DB used to sell whatever it sold in Week 1?
And now it only sells barely nothing by Week 2...man this series is dead.

P.S. the 85 million mark for Bleach is near :)

Nanatsu no tazai doing well as well hakyuu !!

Oct 17, 2014 9:49 AM by Civille

Kiseijuu and NNT had really nice boosts. The top is dominated by sports manga and WSJ titles.

Kinda surprised that Kiseijuu actually had a boos though. The manga is so old that I thought that the anime was just to advertise the two movies and for merch sales. Anyway, Madhouse is doing a great job with it so I'm happy to see that.

Nanatsu no Tazai's boost is phenomenal. If it continues like that, it might reach SNK sales next year though it's highly doubtful. In any case, the year is almost over so I doubt its boost will be sufficient for it to make the top 5 of Oricon's yearly list since they only count copies sold until around the 20th of November.

Haiktuu S2 confirmed.

Oct 17, 2014 4:47 AM by Hatsuyuki

Yay for Assassination Classroom!
Bleach is a bit low though >.<

Now I know the ABP anime projected to be 27.7k is severely overestimated, the LN barely sold 10k, I was expecting far better sales for something so hyped.

It sold over 30k, acteally.

Nanatsu no Taizai doing good and so glad to Haikyuu at the top.

Oct 17, 2014 1:27 AM by Hikarusuke

Don't say it impossible. imagine if NnT constantly increase 50k everyweek until anime end. 50k x 26 week = 1.3 million. and even if anime end, sale still not stop increasing(imagine if sale still constant increase around 20k-30k everyweek even anime end) it's might have just a little change but I would say it possible(but I think it has just 10% possibility unless it increasing much more than 50k everyweek)

PS. I think One Piece still No.1 manga overall, and I talk about per volume.


Nanatsu no Taizai did came 8th in the tv animation ranking.

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2014-10-13/japan-animation-tv-ranking-september-29-october-5/.79854

I think Nanatsu no Taizai will sell around 2-3 million at the end of this year.

I would say Tokyo ghoul has a better shot of doing it than Nanatsu no Taizai. But I'm probably bias towards Nanatsu no Taizai since I don't really like it.

I bet around 4 million this year and 6-7 million next year.

I'm not a fan of Nanatsu no Taizai either. it get my attention just because I want to see new Kodansha manga having hit, especially the one which published in Shonen Magazine like Nanatsu no Taizai.

Haikyuu!!, Kurobasu, Yowapeda and Chihayafuru. <3 ^^
