There is no need to rush the schedule for something that only has like 9 volumes out right now and the recent chapters have been as short as 4 pages iirc. I'm not kidding.


I'm not a huge expert on the business side of manga, I'm just not too familiar with a series debuting onto bookshelves with it's first two volumes releasing on the same day. Has something like that happened before?

I believe the first 2 volumes were released on the same day in Japan as well.

I think they're doing it out of tradition.

They're probably trying catch up to Japan especially with the anime a coming. Anything that's popular usually gets a faster release.

Yeah I was also surprised by this.

Citrus, nice.

But it's not a new release for Viz. It's just them finally releasing a digital only release in print as well.

Wait a minute, both volumes 1 AND 2 of One Punch-Man are releasing on the same day?!?! Is that a good idea?

Tokyo Ghoul is always #1. I read it a while ago and it's not even that great.

It will fade away soon. It's a popular manga that inspired by a popular anime and you shouldn't be angry that it's selling well.
Ummh, Who knows ? I mean people said that about AoT too. But yeah relax man, not everyone shares yer taste. Anyway Seven seas is sailing away again with the wind! Shame non of the lists got the Oh my Goddess omnibus edition, that was my pick for this month.

Selling well for a week or so doesn't really make something popular. Manga sales wouldn't be that big anyway.

Wow Good News for Citrus *.*

Where Can I found the amount of copies selled?

Aug 29, 2015 5:08 AM by ToMaS-The-CroW

I just got my copy today of Tokyo Ghoul vol 1,and vol 2 already released man...(I quite enjoyed vol 1!)

Happy to see Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? selling.

Curious to see how long these two will last in the top ten.
Volume 2 won't last for long

Its right behind the SNK volume 16 in the amazon ranking so I think its gonna last long enough in the top ten until volume 3 is out.

Tokyo Ghoul still going strong, I see. Did volume 1 already outsell both Assassination Classroom vol. 1 & Big Hero 6 vol. 1? Anyway, we're guaranteed to see Attack on Titan vol. 16 next week.

*5. Citrus Vol.3
*8. My Hero Academia Vol.1

I've only read a little of Hero Academia, and I like it so it's nice to know that I can get my hands on a western release to catch up on.
and I've had Citrus sitting in my PTR for ages, I'm pleasantly surprised to see it in this list. I'll definitely look into buying this too.

also ??? at the person bitching about Tokyo Ghoul
chill

^Agreed.

Hating on a series is crap. I feel bad for the thousands of people who wasted their time on hating.

On another note. Yay!!! So happy for tokyo ghoul n boku no hero academia!!!

Heck I know TG anime is crap but for the manga it isn't(10X better than the anime) so sometimes you don't just judge a manga by its anime adaptation.


We'll see that's where the problem lies. Since there're many Animeonly watchers they won't try the manga and just stay with the anime. So there judgement will come from only the anime.
