Deadman Wonderland at #2
Great to see that it's back after that excruciatingly long Hiatus.
One of the best manga i've read in my opinion.

Didn't Agk sold more than 2 million already in Japan? And new release volume got a lot of boost from the anime.The manga is entering the final arc but it still far from over. Author said it himself.

2 million in print.

Katest volume sold about 100k so the anime wasn't a total failure.

According to the wiki page, Agk already sold more than 2 million in Japan which is decent. And new release volume got a lot of boost from the anime selling over 100k in it's first week. It's not selling as much as big 3 or NnT but still selling decent.No reason to cancel the manga.The manga is entering the final arc but it still far from over. Author said it himself.

There are total 48 teigus and we have only know 26 of them so far.

And what you mean by 'we'? MAL? MAL don't decide what is popular and what's not. Most people in MAL are from west such as USA but even then we can't stop Agk from getting number 1 spot. MAL are totally irrelevant. The main reason anime got cancel is because not enough source material so they went original.

Relax dude. It having decent sales, doesn't affect you in anyway, it just means the fans of the series, can look forward to the English releases.

So no need to be toxic, it's existence doesn't affect you. And what the hell do you mean by ''we'' and the manga wasn't cancelled.


I doesnt have decent sales in japan, where it matters. Also, it was definitely rushed to an early conclusion (coming soon) because even the anime couldnt save it from its mediocre sales.


What does any of that have to do with it selling well in the west? Do you even read what you're typing?

Akame ga Kill being #1 really shows how bad American anime/manga taste is.

We finally got rid of the anime and got the manga indirectly cancelled because of bad sales (or at least rushed) and now Americans are spending their gore chugging money on it.
