Pretty impressive considering TG has been the only new title since last year to chart in the top 3. (not including Naruto, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past or SnK)

YAY!!! Tokyo Ghoul, Akame Ga Kill and NGNL stays high on the charts again!!

Aug 9, 2015 5:35 AM by Machination

TG is on top again (•0•)///

Now lets see how volume 2 will be doing.

I'm not sure but I think all the people in U.S bought First volume of AOT! 60% of them are not into volume 2. Well, that's what my friend said who is living in NY! XD


"all the people in U.S" lmao, that would mean 300 million volumes sold.

To answer your preoccupations, AoT other volumes are still selling but it's just that they sell about half to two thirds of volume 1 (besides spinoffs that is.). Vol 2 and 3 would frequently appear if this was a Top 15 or Top 20, but the threshold for a Top 10 is too high. Here are their print values for last year in the US:

54,520 ATTACK ON TITAN 1
37,266 ATTACK ON TITAN 2
28,342 ATTACK ON TITAN 3
25,747 ATTACK ON TITAN 10
24,822 ATTACK ON TITAN 9
22,906 ATTACK ON TITAN 11
22,047 ATTACK ON TITAN 4
19,555 ATTACK ON TITAN 12
19,440 ATTACK ON TITAN 5
19,354 ATTACK ON TITAN NO REGRETS 1
18,402 ATTACK ON TITAN 8
17,777 ATTACK ON TITAN 6
16,207 ATTACK ON TITAN 7
14,454 ATTACK ON TITAN 13
13,044 ATTACK ON TITAN BEFORE V1
10,457 ATTACK ON TITAN 14
8,104 ATTACK ON TITAN JUNIOR HIGH 1
7,894 ATTACK ON TITAN NO REGRETS 2
5,322 ATTACK ON TITAN BEFORE V2
5,305 ATTACK ON TITAN COLOSSAL E 1

At least Japan has different taste and not one manga or light novel that dominates the top 10 for more than 5 weeks (or a hundred weeks!)

Well, AoT volume 1 has been on Japan's weekly lists exactly forty-two times (Out of which 28 were consecutive).

Ask the Gintama English manga version fans that question. You will get to hear just why it does matter for some of us and Publishers like Viz,

It's nice to see The Devil is a Part-Timer! doing well.

Aug 8, 2015 11:12 AM by dawnattack

Holy shit the devil is a part-timer is doing really good.

*9. Death Note Black Vol.1

Must be a boost from the live-action Death Note drama that's currently airing...

Well, the art for aot vol 1 is not eye candy looking so I'm not surprise that some people didn't bother getting the other volumes especially people that are New to manga.

The majority of folks that are buying the manga actually watch the anime already.

Shounen dominance. Not a bad list but ehh. Did any of us actually buy one of the listed titles/volumes this week ? Sounds like a fun thing to know.

Wow, still no Prison School guess most are all talk and not buying it (I got volume 1)
Kinda shocked to see Devil is a Part-timer, I mean it was a decent anime but didn't think the manga would sell that good.

Hope to see Spice and Wolf LN in top 5 later this month same goes for Highschool DXD or maybe even Dungeon for a change.

After looking at this list for many months now I seriously have to ask where the second volume of shingeky is?
Is there such a big gap between the first and second volume in yearly sales reports? Are people just waiting for something that they don't buy any other volumes?

Better taste than Japan seeing how well Infinite Stratos sells in Japan.
