Kokugensou looks promising. I hope it's not aboul VRMMO over again.

Feb 21, 2015 6:42 PM by Sacriven

Happy to see Nijiiro Days on top, I hope it gets an anime adaptation or at least gets licensed in english xD

It will be in the top 20 manga sales this year too, LMFAO you disgrace our Lord Kubo you fake fan gtfo>

I don't know what you are going crazy about. The sales are in constant decline.

So is every series (not icluding the anime boost period).
What's your point?

Does Handa-kun sell more than Barakamon?? Just curious.

I'm curious too. I love Barakamon, and if this is as good, I'd love an anime adaptation :) It's selling so well.

There's a bit of a drop there but not much - looks like about 3-4% drop which is pretty good for being over the course of 6 volumes.

Thanks for the explanation!

32. *18,031 *,488,346 Bleach Vol.66

the bleach anime will stay in his grave for good now.

So?
It still sells about 3 million volumes a year, and this volume will break 650K by year's end.

Its selling really good. =D

Feb 6, 2015 8:59 PM by Machination

If one piece doesn't get the nr.1 spot this year, I'll rip off my arm and eat it.

I think its because of the special edition. The special edition for magi sold over 100k so if you add it up with the normal edition it would be well over 400k.

I don't think so.

http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=668665
First week 300k sales.

http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=1236549
It's like the sales are declining. It's taking it more than 2 weeks to reach 300k.
Or I am missing something.

It's because the respective chapters portrayed in the volume in question are of surprisingly weak quality compared to Magi's early days (to be more precise, it's a long awaited flashback executed so bad that you'd buy the volume only to be able to burn it and cry bitter tears of regret).

Or because of the special edition being an option to buy as well. But I prefer the former reason.

Kingdom,Fairy Tail,magi and of course, One Piece. Nice.

Need Kingdom season 3.

Please no. The anime adaption of Kingdom was gruesome and didn't even come close to the greatness that is the manga.
Let the sales numbers rise, gladly even, but should another anime adaption happen let it be a completely new work from a talented studio.

The last volume didn't (its last time on the weekly ranking was on 498k in the first week of April), so I really don't see this one doing so unless it can take advantage of one of the new rankings that we've gained in the last year. Which there's no way of telling if something will or not until it shows up there


Biblia cannot take advantage of the new rankings we've gained from last year (weekly books literature, weekly light novel series and monthly light novels), as it is classified as only bunko format by Oricon. So the only charts it will appear on is the weekly bunko, 2015 half-yearly and 2015 yearly bunko.

Feb 6, 2015 2:44 AM by Ejc

Ugh i thought Fairy tail sales increased a bit but they are the same.

Feb 5, 2015 8:38 PM by RedHair-Shanks

Biblia is doing good as usual.

Feb 5, 2015 8:01 PM by BoredEntity

Toriko didn't make the list but it should be at about 275K an increae compared to the several previous volumes, hope it breaks 500K by years end XD

I wonder if Biblia will manage to remain in the top long enough to reach 500k? Only 60k to go and Biblia is still first but the numbers are getting down quickly~.

Which there's no way of telling if something will or not until it shows up there.

Incidentally, on the last volume's 6th week on the rankings it was 20.8k for the week and 446k total. This volume came out 11 months after the last one, not a full year, which is why it's doing considerably lower weekly sales for the time of year.

volume 18 that you linked to:
311k in 5 days.
429k in 12 days
476k in 19 days

Volume 24:
194k in 3 days
384k in 10 days
449k in 17 days

prawnprowler said:
So, when's the Biblia Koshodou no Jiken Techou anime coming?

Probably never. Not really the kind of work that usually appeal to the anime fandom after all. For novels you really have the usual types that are often adapted in anime, and the other that almost never get adapted~ Biblia is from the later ImO, so chances are extremely low.
Also, AFAIK the next book (volume 7 ) will be the last. So Biblia will probably finishes near the end of this year. After a novel finishes, the probably of it being adapted goes even lower. if it doesn't get an anime announcement before the end of this year (which I really doubt it will), you can pretty much forget about it.
