Several reasons:
The MC was still a complete weakling
AGK anime going anime original only(I think Mines death convinced a certain amount of fans to read the manga).
The last chapters were great.


I think it might have to do with the fact that no new volume is released when the anime is still running until December 22 where the anime already ended.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Akame_ga_Kill!_chapters

Anime running is from July 6, 2014 – December 14, 2014.

one piece is starting the new year strong

It could be like Attack on Titan. Explode but not overcome one piece in the long run.

Boku no Hero is the one that might beat OP(in a few years).

no one can beat OP

All Hail the King!

11. *,132,448 *,132,671 Akame ga Kill! Vol.11

28. *,*48,587 *,*48,587 Akame ga Kill! Zero Vol.2


This is a surprise. How come the previous volume sold so badly while this one sold decent?

Jan 6, 2015 4:01 AM by Zapredon

good Akame ga kill <3

Jan 6, 2015 3:46 AM by Gal3riel

*4. *,218,239 *,464,971 Tokyo Ghoul:re Vol.1
15. *12,360 *37,428 Tokyo Ghoul Vol.3 "Sekijitsu"


I hope volume 1 sells over 600k by the month. Excellent sales nonetheless.

Jan 5, 2015 10:45 PM by Z4k

Akatsuki no Yona:
Volume 14: 38,985 (3 days) 68,479 (10 days)
Volume 15: 40,411 (3 days) 70,067 (10 days)
(after anime)
Volume 16: 62,826 (3 days) 108,612 (10 days)

Wo0t! Wow, it exceeded my expectations and got a second week of 45k bringing it to over 100k! A third week is probably not quite possible but it still has one more full cour to go, so it can get more fans plus this is only the first volume after the anime. Great news. So give my Fukumenkei Noise anime please, Hakusensha!

Jan 5, 2015 9:40 PM by phoenixalia

That #11. It's nice to see it had some good sales.

Jan 5, 2015 8:47 PM by soulless4now

Haikyuu!! selling a lot is what I like to see. Also happy to see Akatsuki no Yona rank again.

Jan 5, 2015 6:02 PM by marx-chan

Happy that Tokyo Ghoul:re is doing good, seeing AgK in the rankings surprised me.

Anyone know why One Piece sold this ridiculously well just for 2 days?. Is this point in the manga a high point t in the history of the anime?. No spoilers please..


Current arc is fantastic. The anime is really close so its stretching however there is a tonne of interesting new and old characters, lots of epic fights etc.

Jan 5, 2015 5:30 PM by boredxxx

I'm so happy to see that Akame ga Kill is actually doing pretty well!
As expected the King is selling easily over a million!

Jan 5, 2015 4:50 PM by G_Spark233

Expected nothing else from the first 4 manga in the ranking =)

Jan 5, 2015 1:56 PM by b1GZZ

It will, they might crack the million mark.

Jan 5, 2015 1:53 PM by LordPerucho

Tokyo Ghoul:re is selling really great. I hope it ends up selling 700K.

Now I'm really anxious on whether Tokyo Ghoul Root A will give the series a boost or not.

OH LOOK IT'S A KING SITTING ON HIS TRONE.

35. *,*45,786 *,108,612 Akatsuki no Yona Vol.16

Hooray! So happy to see one of my favorites get a boost from its anime. Do I dare hope it ranks next week as well?
