I still wonder why Fairy Tail's popularity increased so suddenly, I dropped it two years ago.
Maybe I should start reading it again.


It's probably due to the latest arc (Tartarus arc)

Good to see Kuroshitsuji and Ao no Exorcist doing good.
And you go Gintama! Hope the new anime will boost it's sales.

Nice to see Fairy Tail on top with fab sales from just 2 days, the Tartaros arc was phenomenal, Marineford level good.

No ranked boost for Ansatsu Kyoushitsu yet is disappointing, hope it's getting a good boost below the top 50.

*1. 78,915 154,958 Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei Vol.15
13. *7,133 275,569 Sword Art Online: Progressive Vol.3
20. *4,119 *30,289 Shinmai Maou no Testament Vol.7
22. *4,008 *60,963 Shinmai Maou no Testament Vol.1

Fabulous! Nice (and thoroughly deserved boost) for Shinmai, Mahouka and SAO with incredible sales once again, I'm ever so pleased. Decent boost for World Break as well. Jolly good week this.


marineford good... uhm

I wish more people would buy light novels cause then we would get more translated


These are Japanese sales. Japanese sales in terms of the total Japanese market size has very little to do with the amount getting translated (at least so long as the market is large enough to support a decent number of series at any rate, which it obviously is)

Why do people care more/or put more emphasis on the ranking, than the actual amount sold. The latter is what's important.


Probably because most people don't pay enough attention to sales over time to know how good a certain figure is, so they look at the rankings for that week as a proxy indicator.

Jan 22, 2015 5:41 AM by kuuderes_shadow

It's so nice to see Kuragehime on top 10. I hope the anime gets 2nd season.

Welll fairy tail deserve to be first it was good chapter

Jan 22, 2015 3:20 AM by Civille

oh yess nice to see Tokyo Ghoul:re v.1 up in the ranking. I wonder if the anime sequel will give TG another boost I mean people might be more interested to read the manga since the anime is going the anime original route.

Nice to see fairy tail up there in just two days.



Fairy Tail's sales is actually 3 days of sales. It was released on Jan 16, which is regarded as the 1st day of sales (unless it is released prior, as we see with some releases), and then the data covers to Jan 18, which is the 3rd day of sales.

ONE PIECE STILL DOMINATING YESS!!.

One Piece #76 is still on top! :D

Kamisama no Iutoori Ni anime adaptation when D:

I want it too! Hopefully without the censoring.

Sakamoto Desu Ga? anime when? :)

Jan 21, 2015 9:34 PM by ToG25thBaam

half of you arent paying attention. magi sold the most, not fairy tail. it had a special edition with 60,000 sales as well.

and alma torran was fantastic IMO. the pacing problems at the end were just cause the editors wanted alibaba and aladdin back.

Jan 21, 2015 8:04 PM by crystalblade13

Holy shit Bleach is way up there!
