I NEED anime NOW! :O

HJ Bunko aren't very big on doing anime adaptations, so I wouldn't get your hopes up. Which is a shame as they have quite a few good series. Then again, they do do them (eg. with Rokujouma last year) so it's not necessarily a futile hope.

Of course ahahaha.

I actually like the anime version of nanatsu no taizai than the manga. Read the first 20 chapter and it felt mediocre at best. Watch 7 ep of the anime and I find it to be good. Hopefully when I continue the manga I will have the same amount of interest as the anime version.

Terra formers is also doing pretty good. Been a while since I've read the manga.

Good to see Taizai again.

TEN COUNT!!!! ( FAVE YAOI MANGA!!! )

For a BL manga those are amazing sales. Most BL don't even make the threshold.

if they managed to adapt Horizon into anime, mushoku should be a play of the child.....

Allow me to weigh in on this but didn't they skip *a lot* of material in order to make the show work? The first two Horizon novels are huge and would've taken at least another 10 episodes to adapt really ALL of the events.
Granted, I don't know about that other story you're talking about but figured I'd throw in my 2 cents either way.

On-topic: It may not be as prominent in the sales this week but I am really, really glad for the Nanatsu no Taizai manga. The books are really worth a read and it's cool that more and more people are sharing that view.

i hope this series will get even more popular in the future :)
Anime when? ^^

Well, as for my response about an anime adaption, gotta have to agree with /a/ here lol.



Well, maybe. I see what you mean there... Still I think it could be an anime, like SAO was (of course probably anime wont be at the same quality level as novels, but still... ) :<

*2. 275,459 *,278,919 Uchuu Kyoudai Vol.25
YAY for Uchuu kyoudai. It really deserves the spot.

*6. 158,271 *,470,026 Terra Formars Vol.12
25. *42,857 *,*44,757 Ten Count Vol.3
50. *22,971 1,140,579 Naruto Vol.72
Keep going on!! Wow for Ten count!!

10. *93,290 *,197,790 Orange Vol.4
I'm DAMN happy for Orange! The sales increased way too much than the 3rd volume so I guess it's getting the popularity, especially after being ranked in the kono manga ga sugoi's male readers list and recommended manga in stores. It has such a beautiful story.

11. *91,455 *,*91,455 ReRe Hello Vol.6
I love this shoujo manga and glad for the rising.

Hang on, babe :3


16,610 *99,264 Naruto: Kakashi Hiden - Hyouten no Ikazuchi

You mean 2.
whoops I didn't see the 2nd one. Even so this list needs more Taizai!


Don't want to be a jerk but Taizai isn't that great. Plus it's already selling enough so I don't see why it needs even more Taizai.


Anyways it's nice seeing Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun selling well.
