Yes it has two more volumes but the last one will be out on December 27 not November which means it won't be counted since the full year list should come out in the beginning of November. Even if we assume AC sells 8.5m by the time the list is out, Kingdom can still surpass it thanks to the backlog sales. Last week it was 358,714 and this week it increased to 448,087 copies sold so obviously this boost is going to last for much longer.

Well all of this is an assumption IF the backlog sales remain above 350k for the rest of the week.


I mean 2 more volumes before the middle of November. AC has been releasing volumes every 2 months. The most recent volume was released in the beginning of July. By that rate, the next volume would release in the beginning of September, and the volume after that will release in the beginning of November, possibly bringing either 1 or 2 weeks worth of volume sales before final sales are calculated. Unless I'm missing something?


There is no guarantee it will still be released every 2 months. As shown here below... volumes have been released in March, May, July, October and December in 2013 and 2014, so it is highly likely the same thing will occur for 2015. That means Vol.16 at the start of October, and Vol.17 at the end of December.

EDIT... Amazon has confirmed the trend over the last 2 years, where Vol.16 will be released on October 3rd: http://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/4088804856/

Two things to note: First, AC has two more volumes before the year ends iirc. They've been on a volume every 2 months cycle, and its next volume should come out in September, and then another one in the beginning of November, which iirc would give it two weeks before the year ends. For AC, that's at the very least 500k per volume, if not closer to 800k. And that's just the new volume, that doesn't count any backlog sales. Kingdom will have another volume come out before the end of the year, but that single volume should only get around 500k sales by the end of the year, looking at how volume 39 is doing, just under 500k sales after 5 weeks.

This is the current Top 10 based on all sales that we know as of the 39th week.

*2 481,543 Nanatsu no Taizai (七つの大罪)
*3 448,087 Kingdom (キングダム)
*4 324,162 Kangoku Gakuen (監獄学園)
*5 245,897 Dungeon Meshi (ダンジョン飯)
*6 208,497 Chihayafuru (ちはやふる) 
*7 198,112 NARUTO Gaiden ~Nanadaime Hokage to Akairo no Hanatsuzuki~ (NARUTO 外伝 ~七代目火影と緋色の花つ月~)
*8 192,899 Haikyuu!! (ハイキュー!!) 
*9 161,268 One Punch Man (ワンパンマン)
10 161,029 Handa-kun (はんだくん)

※Summation of all volume sales for a particular series within the weekly Top 500 Manga volumes list.

You know Kingdom's boost is showing no signs of decrease ever since it started and the backlog sales have continued to remain above 350k. Now suppose the backlog sales continue to remain consistent for another 10 weeks with 1 more volume to release then taking the second spot before the full year list won't be impossible.


I don't think so. Evern if it stays at an average of 400k sales for the rest of the year, which I think is HIGHLY unlikely, I don't think that would be enough.

Two things to note: First, AC has two more volumes before the year ends iirc. They've been on a volume every 2 months cycle, and its next volume should come out in September, and then another one in the beginning of November, which iirc would give it two weeks before the year ends. For AC, that's at the very least 500k per volume, if not closer to 800k. And that's just the new volume, that doesn't count any backlog sales. Kingdom will have another volume come out before the end of the year, but that single volume should only get around 500k sales by the end of the year, looking at how volume 39 is doing, just under 500k sales after 5 weeks.

I do think ti's possible it can make it to the #4 spot, and just maybe make it to #3, but I don't see any way it makes it to #2. But you still gotta give it props for doing what it's been doing without an anime this year and basically riding on a single talk show. Things might be very different right now had the talk show aired a few months earlier.

I saw that one punch-man got licensed here too! gotta get my hands on that!


Haikyuu's seriously not licensed in Australia? At least you can import it if you really want it badly.

I'm guessing with Haikyuu's new season coming out that it'll get a big boost. Maybe it'll push it over the top to get licensed down there.

Thanks for the update. SnK continuing to sell, over 100k in backlog sales for Taizai, and Kingdom had an almost 100k increase from last week.

Great stuff, the sales race is getting really interesting as SnK has barely surpassed AC. I don't think that lead will last for long, as this is SnK's last volume for the year.

AoT vol. 16 still in the charts even one week after it came back. The sales legs on AoT are impressive.
