I never even heard of SNS much and I have been reading manga for about 10 years. And I use to go to lot of forums. Its never been that popular let alone reaching Big 3 Level. Only manga that I see reaching Big 3 level if not already reached is AOT and Fairy Tail came very close to it but then the quality dropped.


Wait what? I thought when we are talking about a series popularity we use cold hard facts. Your opinion on the series quality is irrelevant in this case.

And FYI. Snk per volume sales are much higher than both naruto and bleach. Even when they were in their prime. So there's your answer right there.


I was actually saying it based on facts. I just didn't say the facts. AOT has been #2 in sales for the past 2 years. Fairy Tail was top 10 in sales from year 2009 to the end of the year 2013. That is 5 years and from 2010 to 2012 it was in top 5. But then the quality dropped and its ranking started going down.

AOT has been great for the past 3 years. And I look at year end sales rather then sales per volume. Because you could have great sales per volume but if you don't release much volumes you won't be as popular. I see AOT being the closest manga to big 3 if not already reached that state.

If so then, OPM surpassed as expected.

SnS had hype in a lot of forums(including here), to the point people were expecting it to reach HST level.


What is SNS. Is it AOT.
And what is HST?

SnS = Shokugeki no Souma, HST = Holy Shounen Trinity aka The Big 3 (One Piece, Naruto, Bleach).

Bleach should be at around 476K if anyone's wondering.


Wut?
It was never gonna be big 3 level :(
The newer volume sold 100K+ lower than bleach with no anime (most people are avoiding the manga to not get spiled for when it comes back) XD

Still no signs of clear SnS boost, so much for being HST level.

Probably the biggest bust of the year.

*4 163,235 Kekkai Sensen (血界戦線)
*7 107,423 Shokugeki no Souma (食戟のソーマ)

Those are good numbers especially for Kekkai Sensen. Lets see if the numbers will increase by next week now that they've started reprinting the older volumes. The series needs more love.

As long as danmachi stays in top I'm happy! Nice boost!

What the hell is this? I though the manga ended with vol. 27 last year? Are they decided to continue?

It's most likely the bangai-hen series combined in a volume.
