76K in 2 days. The anime boosted sales.


Thats actually really poor sales for the series well below normal even pre-anime levels.


Volumes that get 2 days of sales on their first week almost always get more sales in week 2 than in week 1. Which means that we can expect this volume to overtake the final reported sales of every volume pre-anime just in its second week. The highest reported sales for a volume of mahouka before the anime aired was 145690, which was volume 8's sales figure in the yearly rankings for 2013 - about 11.5 months after the volume came out.

Ao no Exorcist: Brotherhood, please.


needs to completely finish first for that to happen

Blue Exorcist sold more than Bleach. Wow.

Jan 16, 2015 10:46 PM by soulless4now

One Piece is still in the top 3 (3rd) in the 3rd week? Yay.

Boku no Hero Academia.. hmm, in my opinion it definitely received some help from the end of Naruto, when all the fans are converting. I myself am still struggling to get past the chapters.

If Boku no Hero is not serialized in Shonen Jump it wouldn't even hit 50k. pretty sad to see some manga getting attention just because magazine it is in while the content itself is nothing special.


The fact that it's on Jump it's because it deserved.The fight for manga popularity/success starts even before your manga being serialized
