Wow, I really didn't expect Citrus to make the list at all! It's the biggest hit yuri manga since Girl Friends I think. I'm really happy about that; and Noragami is back too!

I really need to buy the Unofficial Hatsune Mix. I read a bit of it at the bookstore and it's great.


RightStuff has sales based on publishers. Citrus and Girl Friends are both Seven Seas Entertainment, and, right now, they just started a Dark Horse sale, publisher of UHM. Thanks for the recommendations. I'm glad to see yuri as a new (?) genre within manga and anime -- I'm even seeing some yuri 4-koma gag manga, not just the romance and drama stories!

EDIT: The omake of the author's comments in GF is hilarious! :D

I wonder if Attack on Titan reached more than 3 million overall.

Hm, there's a mistake here Attack on Titan Vol.1 is missing.

I think Citrus, Hatsune, and Noragami Vol. 1 are the biggest surprises on this list. I didn't think yuri manga sold well.

AssClass is looking like a big hit and the anime just started.

AoT Vol.1 is finally off the list, but I bet it will come back next week >.>

China is probably very big too,if they don't pirate everything.

I remember seeing a news about a One Piece bank on China,and other about a Naruto statue or something like it.

Yeah it's the second biggest after Japan if I'm not mistaken.

Whoops seems it's not that lower compared to France. I mistakenly assumed that the 50-100k sales I saw were monthly but it's yearly.

It's still higher in France but not by an extreme lot. Naruto and Sailor moon are about 50k unit yearly I think.


But when you consider the fact of population on both country,and that people from others country even buy from US sometimes.It clearly shows that france market manga is very big.
