I'm glad that TG, Noragami and Mahoutsukai no Yome are doing well.

Prison School's also not doing too bad so that's great.

Bleach with almost 400k is a slap on the face of who said that Jump should cancel.

Mar 24, 2016 6:01 PM by murielmondadori

For Kubo it is, thats why he put Nemu in the cover, in order to improve the sales.


You know exactly why he chose Nemu for the volume, stop lying. Also lets not act like this is the first time Kubo put a busty female on one of the volume covers. Just look at the Nel, Harribel, or Rangiku volume covers.

The reason probably is that, he always puts 1 character on the coverr, which has the main focus in those chapters, so he has to put them in the covers, just like he puts Aizen in the cover in the volume he was defeated. And if you now wanna tell me that he shouldnt do busty girls in his manga, almost every shonen manga has that and in bleach its not even that much.

Thanks man.. Its awesome to see its keep increasing. If they just animate right this is will been a attack on titan sale level sigggh Studio Pierrot..

That's a big IF since there's no guarantee for that. Just look at One Punch Man's adaptation or Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood.

Mar 24, 2016 4:43 AM by Z4k

Fairy Tail selling better compared to previous volumes, right?

How does a series that sells so poorly makes the top 30 every year?


Yeah, it's only sold 15 million copies overall, no big deal.

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/daily-briefs/2016-01-08/yowamushi-pedal-manga-has-15-million-copies-in-print/.97346


Some technicalities to get out of the way... Printed copies is always > sold copies, unless the series itself always suffers from major stock issues. The reason why is in most cases, not all printed copies are actually not bought by a consumer for various reasons such as getting lost in transit, sitting in stock for a long time, etc. Thus, these unsold copies are not counted as "sold" and is not reported to Oricon. Obviously Oricon doesn't cover as many points of sale (POS) as with CDs and BD/DVD, so the real number of copies sold is most definitely somewhere between the "printed copies" number and the "sold copies" number reported by Oricon.
