NGNL's hold is surprising. It's been in the top 5 since release, and normally manga like that drop quickly.

It is way more popular than expected.

Lol wut, where did you get those statistics? You most certainly weren't talking out of your ass right?


What statistics? I said it "seemed" to be popular with the SAO/AOT crowd so I wasn't too surprised that the manga achieved similar sales to the manga of those series. I never claimed there was definitive evidence, I was basing it on what I had observed. My friends who only really watch the "big anime" like SAO/AOT all seemed to watch NGNL. No need to get so aggressive.

Interesting list but the only title I own is Naruto vol. 67. Having a hard time making room for manga reading.

Wow, Bleach. Really? Surprising.

NGNL's success isn't too surprising given how the anime seemed to be very popular with the SAO/AOT crowd. Still nice to see Seven Seas get some more big sellers though, even if I'm not interested in the NGNL manga.

Personally happy to see Nisekoi & Fairy Tail make the list. Hopefully The Seven Deadly Sins will show up soon with its next volume & encourage Kodansha to give it a speed up like AOT & Fairy Tail got.

Attack on titan is everywhere DAMNNNNNNNNNN

It was pretty obvious that NGNL would do better over here in the west...

Attack on Titan 1 climbed up? 0_0

Glad to see Bleach rank.

Pokemon Adventures vol 5 ?
Vol 5 was the second book of the Yellow arc, this is the Black and White Saga.

It is listed as Pokemon Adventures Black and White: Volume 5.
Since MAL lists the Japanese numbering of the series, you should edit this to list the correct volume number, which is Volume 47.

I decided to list it under the English synonym this time, but wasn't aware that Black and White was a certain arc. It has been changed to Volume 47 from Volume 5 now, thanks guys!

I'm glad people still care about Bleach.

Agreeing with Punkbeetle about the Pokemon entry.

It is listed as Pokemon Adventures Black and White: Volume 5.

Since MAL lists the Japanese numbering of the series, you should edit this to list the correct volume number, which is Volume 47.

No Game, No Life still up there. Nice.

Attack on Titan is just crazy, man.

Nov 14, 2014 11:20 PM by Tengai

Always good to see NGNL. very glad it's selling well.

Nov 14, 2014 10:44 PM by Okashi

AoT managed to quickly grasp #1 again. I'm not that surprised though, it's extremely popular. Surprised that No Game, No Life is in the list.
