Great top 3.

Fuuka already on KNIM tier just by 3 volume. if anime do a promising It easily more popular than KNIM.

Also Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso outsell Mashiro no Oto. I remember MnO always have better sale, wonder if that one will ever become anime since it is somewhat similar to Shigatsu and serialize in same magazine.

Happy for Toyo Ghoul, Nanatsu and Kiseijuu.

Oct 24, 2014 6:53 AM by Agafin

Good to see Tokyo Ghoul on top and Seven Deadly Sins getting somewhat of a boost.

Oct 24, 2014 5:50 AM by Hikarusuke

Haha! Tokyo Ghoul.

Oct 24, 2014 5:19 AM by Tengai

Yey for Tokyo Ghoul!

Some scan to translate Kyou wa Kaisha Yasumimasu, please.

INDEX IS HERE NO SURPRISED THERE I NEED TO CATCH TO THE LATEST VOLUME SINCE IT'S ALREADY TRANSLATED.

Oct 23, 2014 1:47 PM by Mr_Gutts

yeah it declined an you have a grudge, but this volume especially along with a lot of others declined too, so you can't use this volume as a comparison.


I already used the last volume for comparison too. They're pretty much all declining one after another.

And the other volumes are still maintaining the 500-600K average, it's just that alot more manga are being released so you can't see it in the top 50 anymore, but it still sells well per week.


You can see though that the volumes are selling less copies before falling out of the Top 50 with each volume. You say they sell between 500-600K per volume but volumes used to sell that amount in days before.

20 volumes ago Vol 45 sold 466,000 copies in just 3 days while Vol 65 won't sell that much in 30 days and the last took 18 days to reach that amount.

Wow, many of my fav manga are topping. Glad.

No idea how much of a boost that is. The series has never ranked before.

Oct 23, 2014 6:57 AM by kuuderes_shadow

spice & wolf season 3 has no chance of happening; haruhi new seasons can only happen when Tanigawa will have written new volumes (if he ever wrote it). Kizumonogatari seems like the better example actually x).

I think it will pass TG, they sold in 2 weeks what TG sold in 4/5. If it keeps selling like this it will pass TG 100%. Next 2,3 weeks will tell us.


There is only 4 weeks left to be counted for the 2014 yearly rankings. 2013 yearly ranking covered the period of 2012/11/19~2013/11/17. 2014 half-yearly ranking covered the period from 2013/11/18~2014/05/18, so the 2014 yearly ranking will definitely cover up to Nov 16th.

Who knows, Nanatsu does have some chance of passing Tokyo Ghoul, but Tokyo Ghoul has experienced continued anime boosts for around 3 months more than Nanatsu due to when they both started airing. If the gap between them is currently more than 1.2M units, then I don't think Nanatsu will beat Tokyo Ghoul in the 2014 yearly ranking.

Oh... nvm then. I thought there will be a bit more time. Even though it might still happen. I don't really know how much was Nanatsu sold this year before the anime.

Nanatsu no Taizai is maybe doing good, but I'm sure it wont pass tokyo ghoul or magi coming at the end of year sales. Japan love for generic series is too strong. smh.

*6. 126,032 *,255,330 Chihayafuru Vol.26
Third season when? I really wanna a third season of Chihayafuru <3
Well, up until recently not enough has happened to warrant another season but with v26, that changed and now enough has happened to do a season in my opinion. So I must say I was disappointed they didn't announce it on volume 26 but volume 27 would be OK too. If that passes without an announcement then I will be worried that season 3 isn't happening. We now have enough books as s1 was 1-8.5, s2 was 8.5-17 and now we have 18-26 so enough material and also actually a good stopping point at the end of v26. So... please, please, season 3!

The manga sales seem to be down a bit as well so I think it is time for another boost. Please!


Meh. They can just make it up, some artistic creativity! Just kidding. Kind of. Though if that's what it takes to get another season of Chihayafuru...
