I don't think Japan really gives a shit about American manga readers, otherwise they would actively pursue more English Adaptations. We represent such a small group of readers we're a non-factor in their calculations.


I meant more like Crunchyroll and these companies that stream anime legally should pair up with english publishers(VIZ,YP etc) and advertise the manga/Light novels of the anime they are streaming. (Even though most of the time the manga of these series aren't always available for sale in english at the time of the anime but lately that trend has been changing)

3 vol sakamoto are out
4 vol Boku no hero academia are out
4 volTwin star Exorcist are out
Re:zero volume 1 will come out in july doubt many people know it.



Pirate sites also should do at least that much
Ahh I see what you mean. I think manga is beginning to be more commonly published in English and most of the popular stuff is fully adapted such as One Piece and Fairy Tail, but new airing shows are lacking and that's indeed an issue.

The fact we don't see series with airing anime rank is a bit worrying.

They need to make these people that watch only the anime get interested into reading the manga (in japan its almost common sense but in the West there are a lot of Anime Watchers that couldn't give a shit about the manga/Light Novel)

Who the hell continues to buy OPM volume 1, it's always on here. As much as I like it, how many people are just gonna buy the first volume?


It's standard practice in the US. Attack on Titan's first volume spent over 120 weeks on the list (probably much more), with 81 consecutive weeks. Naruto's first volume has more than 400k sales.

Hope that Magi makes it for the next week because it never does 😓 I picked up the new release today to help it out.

Yeah agreed. It's a shame considering how good it is.

Great to see Food Wars! rank. Hopefully the next few volumes get that anime boost.

OPM still going strong :)

Food Wars: Shokugeki no Souma Vol.11

thats sad one good one out of 10

Apr 16, 2016 7:51 AM by darkclown1992

Luckily Nichijou didn't drop too much, but Punpun's outta the list :(
But yeah, that AoT cover is terrible. Since it's a start of a new arc, and there's a good amount of epic moments so far, they had so many options to choose from >_<

1. Attack on Titan Vol.18
season 2 will be awesome <3

Twin Star Exorcist Failed to rank

Magus Bride will probably rank next week , My Hero Academia should appear in this list too during the anime

Dang, Princess Jellyfish is out of the list already after last week.

Kiss Him, Not Me at rank #9, interesting.


YES!!!! Some SHoujo LOVE!!!!

Apr 16, 2016 3:15 AM by Machination

Yeah pretty standard list as always, more or less.

Apr 16, 2016 2:51 AM by Ramkec

Nichijou huh. I've been considering giving it a shot for a while now.

Apr 16, 2016 1:34 AM by geralt

The decline in quality is real.

what up with the AoT cover? looks bad, like fandmade or something.

Oh wow a shoujo on the list, that's kinda unusual.


I have to agree with you, it looks pretty plain. My least favorite cover from the series.
