Niiice, DxD v19's selling more than v18 did.


Well barely, because it was on sale for 1 extra day compared to Vol.18. Seems similar sales to me.

No, it's not last volume.

Nov 28, 2014 6:54 AM by iLostReason

Lol, NGE number 1. O.o

Cool, NNT selling well.

Good to see Oregairu and Shield Bro in Light Novels section.

Nov 27, 2014 5:17 PM by Yohimo_asakura

Nanatsu no Taizai still up and Diamond no Ace on top that's nice.

*1. 307,123 307,123 Neon Genesis Evangelion Vol.14 Premium Limited Edition

That looks awesome. Damn, I would buy it if it was still available in honto or amazon, I missed it. T_T

Lancehot said:
So by limited, premium edition I assume they just meant more expensive, normal edition? 300k+ sales in one week doesn't sound very limited.

No, there are extra contents. And no, it really is limited. It's just been 1 week and it's out of stock in almost every online store I checked.

Nov 27, 2014 11:11 AM by Jinbou

The anime really pushed Daiya no A's sales (me contributing to themXD), good to know.

Think I'm gonna be checking out OUT next, lol.

A second season of Hoozuki no Reitetsu would be appreciated.
Second this.

Nice sales for Noragami :3

Fairy Tail earned that position.


As always, position doesn't matter much except for determining which manga makes it onto the list (Top 50) and has their sales counted (Top 500). After all, if it had more competition such as ONE PIECE, and other high selling manga, it wouldn't be ranked so high. Sales matter more in the end...

CookingPriest said:
The current arc is possibly the BEST one in the whole manga so far.


If we compare the sales to the previous volume, it only barely sold higher (perhaps because it was on sale for 2 more days). The test is how much it sells in the 2nd week compared to Vol.45, to be able to gauge with reasonable certainty that the "Best" arc had any noticeable effect on sales.

*2 -- *,245,113 *,245,113 **1 5 FAIRY TAIL 45
*2 -- *,268,796 *,269,918 **1 7 FAIRY TAIL 46

Where has it been said that this is the last volume??? My understanding was there was alot more of the story to come out yet.

Unsure actually, I didn't realize I skipped a question mark. It's ending soon for sure though,whether in the next, or next few volumes. Watari said the story is approaching its final stages, but I won't know until I read it. I'd actually prefer to have it ended in the next volume rather than waiting some more -.-

Nov 27, 2014 12:51 AM by justvincexd

Go shield bro!! Hope it gets an adaption soon.

Anyone read NGE manga know if there are any major differences between the anime and manga?

The manga actually 'combines' NGE and The End of Eva. There are a lot more info on characters like Kaji and Shinji as a character is much more likable in the manga. The ending is also much more compact and satisfying. Besides those, there are quite a number of subtle differences, so you can try the manga for a different experience of NGE.

People read the Evangelion manga instead of watching the anime?

They do both.

Nov 26, 2014 6:55 PM by Trequartista

Cool about NGE, one of my beloved franchises.

Hope to see at least more Japanese raws of Nanatsuya soon, all I could find and read are chapters 3 and 4 and it looks promising :(

Nov 26, 2014 6:32 PM by RhapsodyinBlue

Them NGE sales. Season 2 when? 😫😫👌😍

Nov 26, 2014 6:09 PM by rich872

Daiya no Ace, Baby Steps and Area no Kishi <3

Nov 26, 2014 5:59 PM by Mayuka

Fairy Tail earned that position. The current arc is possibly the BEST one in the whole manga so far.

We bring the pain! XD

Toriko sales are still sadly fairly low considering how good it is (BAMBINA!) and how much Jump pushed it.

It will be be around 600K in about 6 months, Toriko does great in the long run that's why it has over 20 million in print already XD
