I usually post them for manga and light novels at the News Club:

http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=1348681

But you can also find them on 2ch a few hours later in their respective threads.

I am pretty sad to see that Nanatsu no Taizai is no longer on the list, I hope there's a boost in the top 100 though. Well, I guess it did have a pretty good boost.


Doesn't really matter as long as all volumes are still in Top 500 manga, as Oricon keeps the counted sales up to there. The 12 volumes of Nanatsu no Taizai sold a combined 154,046 this week, according to the Top 10 Weekly Manga Series from Oricon Youtaiju.

Note Tokyo Ghoul:re is considered a separate series from the original Tokyo Ghoul by Oricon, so Tokyo Ghoul:re Vol.1's sales of 23,713 isn't included in that 139,990 that the original 14 volumes have sold combined this week.

Weekly Manga Series
Rank / Weekly Sales / Weekly Charted Sales / Series Title
*1 278,808 269,387 Kimi ni Todoke (君に届け)
*2 256,142 239,705 Kingdom (キングダム)
*3 210,554 190,470 Magi (マギ)
*4 167,827 148,182 FAIRY TAIL
*5 154,046 ***,*** Nanatsu no Taizai (七つの大罪)
*6 149,544 139,787 Handa-kun (はんだくん)
*7 144,455 *99,575 Diamond no Ace (ダイヤのA)
*8 139,990 ***,*** Tokyo Ghoul (東京喰種トーキョーグール)
*9 125,972 *28,058 Ansatsu Kyoushitsu (暗殺教室)
10 121,322 118,453 GIANT KILLING


So have Tokyo Ghoul's Vols (not including the sequel) reached 700K yet?

Magi is doing well, there's also the limited version.


Yeah, but this is the Alma Torran arc and it wasn't really popular in Japan cause it had nothing to do with the main cast. Ohtaka meant for it to be longer, but cause people were getting tired of the long flashback she finished it early. From what I heard

Nothing very interesting this week.

One Piece close to 3 million

SNK close to 2 million.

NNT, TG;RE, KnB, AssClass all have no noticeable boosts in the Top 50 despite their anime adaptations. The threshold is probably too high.


Assclass anime is fighting a battle on trying to find new viewers to get into the series. it will probably have to be a big hit anime like snk to get some noticeable boost. The manga has already been advertised so well that the anime is probably not even needed.

Oh cool so that means the anime gave the old volumes of Tokyo ghoul another small boost.

When I first watch Kingdom,I drop it after the first few episodes.

However,when I notice the manga is selling well, I decided to try it again and thank God I give it a second chance. Really hope there will be sequel though that seems unlikely to happen.
