Really glad to see Gekkan Shoujo selling well! Also we really need a second season TT!

Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun season 2 when?! I'm glad to see it's doing very well in sales so far.

Golden Kamuy up there in the top 10 pleases me too.

Glad to see Nozaki-kun sell so good, like everyone, I'm hoping for a second season

*8. *85,306 *,262,602 Diamond no Ace Act II Vol.4

^ These please me. Always good to see series that I enjoy in the top 10. most of these need a season 2 anime also lol

39. *24,840 *,*93,222 Days Vol.18

^ At least it made top 40. To be honest it isn't quite as exciting as many of the other sports anime I have watched (at least not yet) but I am still enjoying it and hope the manga does and sells well.

42. *24,073 2,387,144 One Piece Vol.82

^ One Piece continues to have legs. I wonder if it will make 2,400,000 before leaving the top 50.

isn't azumanga daioh sold like 500K or something years ago?

it's nothing to do with 4-koma it self... it's just oftenly 4koma still treated as "side works" and oftenly not advertised enough... just slightly reminder gekkan shoujo author itself mainworks is not this series... that's why we got 14 page mounthly at most... (still wondering why her mainworks still not adapted yet)

Glad to see Gsnk, Vinland Saga, Kamuy, Dungeon Meshi, Yona, GochiUsa, Baby Steps doing well. Also, Days seems to have gotten a nice boost, so that's good.

Gochiusa numbers may seem low, but it was released on Saturday (second time in a row), so only 2 days are included. It actually grew a bit over the previous volume.

Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun! I never imagined to see this manga at the top of the list! It sure gained a lot of popularity in Japan, that's for sure! I'd expect an adaption of season two of this series! I'm happy!
