No offence mate, but i'm not bothered to not only keep up but also to remember such things. I'm not a dub watcher nor a hater to be clear(Peeked a bit at Gangsta's for instant, quite liked it). So really, dont go all '' Didn't you know'' on me. That being said thanks for reminding me about it though. And I know it recently finished, season 1 that is, I was watching it as it was airing.

It IS a big deal to the english versions of the books. Again just ask Gintama, a quite popular series whos english version got cancelled because of low sales/cost. Sure, Japan their popular publications may sell millions/ hundred thousands of copies and are safe but every sale for the English editions counts since their safetyzone in a lot less.


Sorry, if it sounded rude. It was on my mistake *bows down* ^_^
No problem, no need to bown. Internet has made me quite jaded. Text ofcourse, as you know, doesnt have intonation so when something can fall on either end of the mocking scale I by default answer back as I just got mocked.

Didn't you know that Owari no Seraph has a dubbed even when the season 1 is just airing. And yeah, to answer that they have and just recently finished.

As stated many times before, ranking in the NY Bestsellers List isn't a big deal compared to Japan since the differences in the scale of the manga markets in both regions are night and day.

All nice and such but check the numbers behinds the titles. Its always the big 5 plus books below 10 vols that stick for more than 2 weeks. Kinda worrying Market cannibalizing itself ? Anyway, Owari back ? did something happen ? S2 shouldnt be affecting it too much, did it recieve a dub ?

So BnHA is already about as popular as One Piece without any anime. Impressive.
