Why are people even disappointed in this ranking, it's not like it's gonna make any differences if Naruto, Bleach, and Bakuman weren't in the top 3, right?

What did you expect? They're the second and third most popular currently running series in Japan, obviously they would come in first and second in volume sales with their new volume releases.

Yay for Bakuman and Eyeshield 21. ^_^

Even though Naruto and Bleach are on the top, they sold much less at first week compared to their previous volumes.
No, it's actually stronger than before. Naruto 46 1st week sold 504,024 copies. Bleach 39 1st week is 532,553 copies.The last three volumes sales are lower than current volume.In fact, all of the top ten except Shin POT which is a new manga, have stronger opening than their previous volumes. I'm especially happy that Mago and Toriko break the 100k mark within their first week. I hope they can reach 200k in their next volume.

Hell yes.
And with Fukuyama Jun casted as Rikuo in the upcoming drama cd it's only a matter of time until an anime is announced.
Whaaaaaaaat I did not know this. FukuJun as Rikuo? Ohmygod, I can already hear it. Day!Rikuo gets the shota!Jun voice and Night!Rikuo gets the deeper Jun voice.

The sales seem pretty weak to me

Aug 12, 2009 10:01 PM by BlackAssassin

I didn't know that Kochikame is still in stores. It's like impossible to find anywhere for me.

I give you the Shonen Jump week, the top 8 are all Shueisha.

Aug 12, 2009 9:01 PM by mitamaking

Sometimes I feel like people don't understand how these weekly rankings work. Of course Naruto and Bleach are up there. A new volume of each series came out and being the first week in its sales -- and given how popular these two shounen titles are -- they sell well and above everything else.

But wow, the top 4 of 5 contain WSJ series. They be raking in the sales this week...and probably the next few.
