it was people saying bleach won't get a 2nd season with 500K sales, but that's stupid since even these series with 50K get anime XD


These 50k series get anime because the anime can become popular and ignite the sales of the manga. Ao no Exorcist went from like doing 50k a volume to near 1 million @ the peak of its popularity, even now it still outsells Bleach....

And as for a bleach second season, best case scenario is you'll get an Inuyasha Final Season rushed mess lol.. ask Index novel fans how well it's light novel sales are in getting in a 3rd anime season.

Top 100 Manga Volumes and Top 30 Manga Series for half-yearly 2015 from Oricon Youtaiju has now been posted at the News Club and the Manga Sales Rankings Club:

Nanatsu no Taizai barely beat ONE PIECE in the series rankings, with a gap of just over 13K sales. Definitely it won't beat it in the full-year rankings... but that was a nice battle.

Yay.

Damn, Mahouka is going crazy at their selling. I think Volume 16 brought something good that might be a twist or something in a line like that. I would love to see season 2 in the future.

25. *30,774 *,441,074 Natsume Yuujinchou Vol.19
47. *18,220 *,131,652 Kekkai Senseni Vol.4
41. *19,465 *,135,681 Kekkai Sensen Vol.3
37. *20,506 *,141,303 Kekkai Sensen Vol.2
34. *22,852 *,144,105 Kekkai Sensen Vol.1

It's nice to see some familiar name among these list such as these, I am hoping their future selling is going to be better than this.

Neat. Though English trads are a bit behind, but still good to see.

AWW YEA, Oniisama still within top 5 in 3 weeks in row. /o/

Still within top 5, not bad.

Imawa no Kuni no Alice is too good to sell at only 1/4 of Kamisama no Iutoori.

It's simply the better survival game manga.

May 29, 2015 5:03 AM by live2win

i'm glad that kekkai sensen is selling pretty well. hopefully it'll lead to a possible second season of the anime...?

barakamon is still doing great, yay ^.^

May 28, 2015 7:15 PM by flochelle

Mahouka is still selling like pancakes. No surprise there.

I still didn't get over the fact that Orange getting a Live-Action instead of an anime. ;_;
But I heard that the manga is on hiatus. Most anime nowadays are made to promote the original source, I don't see much value in promoting a manga on hiatus. Of course there are exception, but as a fan I wouldn't like to watch an anime series, fall in love with it, only to find that I couldn't read more.


No it isn't. It was on a hiatus. But there will never be an anime as I have read that we are but a couple of months away from the end of the manga. I was hoping it would get something like few other shows where the manga and anime endings coincide. :(

Love So Life anime adaptation when?


I know how you feel, Stark! This, Orange and Last Game have been in my wishlist for some time. I mean I got my Yona recently and I am getting my Shirayuki as well. I couldn't have asked for more if I got my Shiharu and Kujo!
