From what ive read of the manga it was quiet good. The anime was garbage, but the manga was interesting nad enjoyable. I wonder why the popularity dropped so hard.

Why are you talking to a Toriko hater? you won't get anywhere in life with people like them.
Toriko's new volume was released on Jan. 5 so it'll be on next week's list.
And it's highly ranked in the magazine it's published in, plus the anime has a high chance to come back later this year, so toriko is doing fine.

Sales have no relation with quality, but ImO, biblia is actually one of the exceptions here, as it's actually a good read.


Thank god it has a Manga adaption, really.

Can't say anything on that, as I haven't read the manga; I don't know if the manga covers the LN properly and how much was covered until now. I'm not sure that kind of story goes very well with the manga media.

How is One Piece still so popular? You'd think after 76 volumes people would get tired of that crap.


Nah stuff doesnt stay on top if its crap

Jan 10, 2015 5:05 AM by boredxxx

Haha One Piece baby. I need to check out haikyu since its so popular. Too bad it doesnt have the kuroko superpowers but worth a shot. Akame is kinda low, should be up there with tokyo ghoul honestly but oh well. Wheres toriko these days?

Well, it seems you never read One Piece so of course you don't understand why it is still popular. Of course there are people who got bored of it and dropped it but the vast majority still loves it, mainly because Oda manages to keep it entertaining. When you read One Piece there comes a point where you realize that Oda is building up something great and epic. One Piece is a story where the reader gets the impression that things constantly move and progress in the background even if the focus is on the main characters most of the time. It is expanding and growing constantly and this keeps it interesting to this very day.

Must wait for Tokyo Ghoul season 2 to finish airing first before I watch it T^T
The Manga is doing good.

Because it's that damn good. This current arc is one of the best in the manga.

Not really relevant of it's quality. Popular series with established fanbase rarely drop severely in sales.

^you should, bud. It's a good manga.

Just you keep selling, Haikyuu, you beautiful sports manga you. <3

I need to check out Nanatsu no Taizai

Jan 9, 2015 7:14 AM by FireEmblemIke24

Even the TG novels got a little boost which is nice.

Jan 8, 2015 11:59 PM by Z4k

Nice to see Tokyo Ghoul selling 500.000 copies =D Seems like the first anime boosted the sales A LOT.

Because they still like it? Not very hard to understand
For some it's really hard to understand it even when you tell them 10 times, so don't bother repeating it again, because you will see the same people asking same questions after every new volume is released and sells with good numbers.Most of those people are also people who didn't even touch manga they are complaining about and think that every arc is the same and others should get bored of it because...i don't even know why.
