Bleach's anime is never coming back, 459k in 3 weeks is pretty lackluster for a series like Bleach, it's a shadow of its former self.


That's a pretty damn good shadow, then.

if you think about it, it's actually some hardcore insult for a lot of other manga, because they are shadows of bleach's shadow :D

wow, 2 Nisio Isin's books take 1st and 2nd place, and one of them is Zaregoto spin-off
Great news!

Oh, right, together with Take. Pretty recognizable.

I wonder if Magi will get a new season soon.

lol it's still the 6th best selling series in the magazine it's published in (JUMP) now add the fact naruto is in it's last phase and assclass ending, it's the 4th best selling without an anime XD
And if kekkai sensen which sells 40K can get an anime what makes you think bleach won't get one? XD
And bleach will still be in the top 20 yearly manga sales.
GG

More sales than vol 65.
44. *21,703 *,459,695 Bleach Vol.67


Thank you for give me hope

Bleach has fallen so low, well not that it's surprising really. Also Nanatsu no Taizan #1? I should probably start reading the manga soon, especially since I loved the anime.

Correct me if i'm wrong but the third week of Volume 15 was the equivalent of 20 days of sales as opposed to 18 for this one right?


Generally a few extra days do not matter as much after the 1st week of sales. There was a larger 2nd week for Vol.16 compared to Vol.15 for both the Regular and Limited Editions, which made sales almost equal after 2 weeks.

*5 *1 *,251,635 1,263,194 **2 - 進撃の巨人 15
45 *4 *,*23,149 *,230,460 **2 - 進撃の巨人 15 DVD付き限定版
*1 *1 *,352,615 1,221,309 **2 - 進撃の巨人 16
23 *3 *,*37,842 *,225,782 **2 - 進撃の巨人 16 DVD付き限定版

3 weeks in, there is not much difference between Vol.15 and Vol.16 to declare this little drop in sales (it is only 3.24%) as a catastrophe or something. It is completely normal. There was a early sale of 19,394 for the Vol.15 Limited Edition though, but still that isn't much anyway compared to the following weeks.

I say wait until the year ends to compare last year per volume sales with this year.
I got a strong deja vu vibe. I don't think it is best to compare this year to last year, you know, with the backlog volume sales and all. I don't know if it was you or the other guy last week who said that SnK usually reach 1.6m after its 3rd week.

Ejc said:
Thanks for the numbers. I don't usually include the limited edition tho.

I guess the other is me? then no, I never said that.

Apr 30, 2015 4:18 AM by FireEmblemIke24

Danmachi definitely got some major boost.

Apr 30, 2015 4:06 AM by julyan

I love how all those volumes of DanMachi are all close together =D That anime is getting lots of attention lately ( one of it could be about Hestia )
