Strange resurgence of both TG and OPM volumes 1, surprised they beat out many new releases, must have been a very slow week, as neither were present on the chart last week.

OPM was on the list last week;

It actually hasn't left the list at all since it was released back in September if I'm not mistaken.

As for Tokyo Ghoul 1, it's back because a new volume was released. It often happens with these mega popular series for the first few volumes (happened with AoT and AssClass iirc).

So happy for Akame ga Kill.

The last volume was also at the number 1.


I never knew. Akame ga Kill is so strong in the Western market. Can't wait to grab my volume 6 soon.

In the US market not whole western market.

YAY! Akame number 1.

Taboo Tattoo? guess the influence by series that are getting or have an anime is a world wide phenomenon.

I think I'll not bother with buying more Akame ga Kill. But I'm happy to see The Devil is a Part-timer though, even if it is the manga rather than the novel.

Bae selling that AgK greatness.

Wow, I Am a Hero! Also, the hype for Taboo Tattoo anime adaptation's getting visible.
