*7. *51,708 *,*51,708 5-ji kara 9-ji made Vol.12
This 5-ji kara 9-ji made looks like a lot of fun just from the synopsis. I doubt there's an english or french translation for it otherwise I would have read it (I don't read manga a lot these days though).

48. *16,431 1,797,088 Shingeki no Kyojin Vol.18
Was there anything special with this volume? It's been consistently selling 14-16k for like a month now, you'd think it was under the effect of an anime boost or something.
It's the start of a new arc and went back to the main objective of getting to the basement. Many fans wanted the politic arc to end. Also not sure if the PS4 game releasing had any effect on this and also the reairing of season 1 that's been going on.

Wasn't aware of Index and Railgun being a spinoff doesn't really count since that is the original format. Either way it's still not the norm in Japan from what I've seen hence surprise.

I think it had decent chapters in it (all the political crap ended and it actually got interesting again) which could explain it. Other than that nothing i can think of.

Need to start reading 5-ji kara 9-ji made at some point. Sad to see Arachnid end but decent sales for the final volume. Still surprises me that the Shinmai manga outsells the manga in Japan. Taking into account the LE sales and it's probably already surpassed the last volume. Happy anyway, fab series.

Wtf. Did Kingdom get another boost? The latest volume isn't even on the list and the series sold like 30k more than last week?


Yeah. Apparently, there's a 10th anniversary special edition thingy going on or something, and it's given the series a bit of a boost. I think the boost will die down after this week, though

Aha, that OreMono cover.

Surprisingly hayate the combat butler still lives. Faithful anime NEVER

Mar 2, 2016 3:55 PM by JetNoir

Thanks for reminding me that there is no more active fan translation for OreMono. :/ I just had to buy one series. With that and Fire Emblem coming out, my wallet is practically empty.

25,198 *,*71,033 Hayate no Gotoku! Vol.47
19,683 *,116,073 Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou Vol.9

Glad for these authors :)

*29,065 *,*71,282 Enen no Shouboutai Vol.1

The brand "soul eater" author helps this too much. In my opinion for the first 10 chapters, it is a very bad generic shounen .

Mar 2, 2016 3:03 PM by giathuan2707

Gotta love that Oreimo cover

Very noice

I thought it was a Mario nod at first XD Yamato looks like princess peach.

Horror adaptations NEVER!

It is a new Manga, the one linked in the OP is wrong.
