yea, any series you find on this chart is considered successful for whichever publisher released them. It's mostly just to check if a series is doing well depending if there is a push to make the series successful (ie. new anime, new volume releases)

If something is being done to promote a series and you don't see it on that chart then that's something you can read into. Gotta remember there's also a ton of established series that make the chart regularly, taking up spots. Sometimes a series does well but doesn't make the top 50 so you won't see it, you gotta ask someone who knows the source about series farther down the rankings.

Speaking of that anyone got news on absolute duo? I got interested and was wondering if sales went up.

Nanatsu no Taizai is slaying the charts!!
The anime really did its job.

Feb 27, 2015 12:19 PM by Hikarusuke

JoJooooooooooooo! I'm genuinely happy.

And Terra Formars lol

Feb 27, 2015 11:26 AM by robis798

Wow NNT sold 500k in one week (if you add the limited edition). It might sell even more than Naruto's volumes ever sold per year at this point(excluding the last one of course).

Feb 27, 2015 11:24 AM by Agafin

Awesome for Nanatsu.. Time to reboot the anime and make an long running anime! :D

*5. 128,519 *,128,519 Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun Vol.6
Aw yeaaah

Chiyo is best girl

Feb 26, 2015 11:57 AM by Comic_Sans

Domestic na Kanojo have significant increase from vol.3. I guess the story doing well for attract new reader since author's previous manga was nowhere near this success.

Feb 26, 2015 10:47 AM by Monomunu

Damn no One Piece this week,tough the last place this week sold 5k more than last.

In one month when the next volume is released,v.65 will appear again on the list with already 3 million copies

Feb 26, 2015 9:52 AM by riqueterremoto

Not surprised to see Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun, having an absolute riot reading it.

not a lot of sale for LN since none of the big names on on sale this week.


Gagaga's lineup for this month was completely devoid of any of its bigger names, and Fujimi and HJ Novels releases (which make up all the 5k+ selling new light novel releases from this week) only came out on Friday so we can expect most of them to sell about the same or more next week than this week.

As for the upcoming week of releases, we have a similar situation again, with the various kadokawa* labels, famitsu and HJ Bunko (as well as the slight wildcard of KCG Bunko) not coming out until Saturday and Kodansha Ranobe Bunko releasing on Friday. The only label that is notable on a sales perspective which has releases at the start of next week is MF Bunko J (and the related MF Books), which, like Gagaga, doesn't have many big name series out this month (they're all being saved up for March...)

*note: "kadokawa" here refers to the labels that have always historically been published by kadokawa shoten, and not everything published by parts of the much larger kadokawa corporation.

*2. 311,755 *,311,755 Terra Formars Vol.12

I'll definitely buy it! ONLY in 2 days and the sales are like this. Looking 4ward to how it will do till next week. ^.^

13. *58,081 *,278,005 Arslan Senki Vol.3
Very glad to see Arslan doing well. Hope the anime adaption boost its sales.

15. *56,601 1,117,608 Naruto Vol.72
Happy for Naruto since it deserves it! Please keep going on with the fabulous job~~

Can't wait for next weeks manga rankings!!

Great top5
Too bad terraformars got a shit anime adaptation

Feb 26, 2015 1:06 AM by alpha_shadow

yay more love for Orange~

Feb 26, 2015 12:16 AM by Kaoreen

What a boring list, and check out who is at the top. Meh.

I forgot all about terra formers, this series has too much action in it, in my opinion. Another problem with it is that the main character doesn't get much screen time. Well, it still sells pretty well. Oh and the series needs a little romance in it.
