Wth Wotaku is that popular?

AWESOME! Its a really good manga.

I know, right? The chapters aren't being released regularly which is a shame but once they are, it's a blast every time I'm reading them.

8 Golden Kamui 87,356
9 Kingdom 86,640
10 Terra Formars 83,685
Not sure if anyone else replied but Chihayafuru is bi weekly so it's every 2 weeks.


These are the combined Tankoubon volume sales within the Top 500 weekly manga for any particular series. A certain number of chapters of a manga are compiled into volumes to make a Tankoubon volume, so Chihayafuru being bi-weekly is irrelevant for these rankings.

@AbsoluteBloom, one week of airing is unlikely to have an effect since pre-orders are what drives the number printed so unless it's a pre-airing bump or the publisher anticipated an anime bump and printed more than usual, people hoping to grab a copy may find it sold out quickly. It takes a while to do a reprint so unless it shows up much later in the rankings or the monthly, half yearly or yearly lists we may never know but it would be interesting to see those later numbers. Many manga don't show an appreciable bump until after they finish airing for this reason but the next volume may start to show a bump.

ayy, going strong ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)


But where's Bleach? :(

Volume 71 is not in the top 50 anymore.

Are people still even reading Bleach? By the looks of it, there aren't many people buying the volumes. Why has the series not been axed? Its not even profitable!

The cringe is strong with this one.

Sheesh, next week will be huge with One Piece, Attack on Titan, Assassination Classroom, My Hero Academia, and more.

It'll be interesting to see how My Hero Academia sells next week. I know that only one episode of the anime is out so far, but still.

Wow, if you're gonna hate on the series at least know what you're talking about. Don't go in to deep dark and dirty places to pull out fake info.

Nice. This will make Miden great again

I wonder if we'll get another book later on when more characters are introduced.

Hate and misinformation. Leave the forum.

As a fan of Wotaku, I'll say I'm proud how this manga's becoming more popular in Japan. Can't wait for next chapter, it's been ages the scanlation hasn't uploaded stuff for a while now
