I am glad Owari no Seraph are still doing fine despite the anime ended long ago and being a monthly manga ^_^

Nice to see Kekkai Sensen on there. Hopefully we'll get a season 2 someday.

Aww yes Ten Count!! I'm incredibly happy lmao I actually bought two copies of the book for the extras

Golden Kamuy's volumes are constantly rising in sales. Really happy with how Japanese readers are responding to the series.

Now the patient wait for any westerner to give a damn about it :/

Sep 8, 2016 9:15 PM by treedude

Hero Academia and Seraph of the End FTW.

Sep 8, 2016 8:19 PM by malvarez1

I wanted Shokugeki no Soma to be first but I'm happy for MHA.
Actually two of my favorite manga.

ura sunday is web magazine... just like relife... so it's not only voulme sales that count... but yes, it printed physicaly and look like phisycal release not boosting that much, huh? but isn't it boosting web reader? i remember they celebrate sometheng recently (can't read japanese)...

BD estimation is breaking 5K thou... i doubt it unpopular if can get that many...
care to explain? i see no correlation, like at all...


Like Re:zero. The web novel has gone furthur than the light novels and is very popular. But the light novel sales increased alot too. Maybe Re:zero is just more popular than Mob Psycho. I guess I thought it was gonna be as popular as One punch man since its from the same author.
but OPM and mob psycho is not even same... also opm manga and mob psycho 100 manga is complitly different because murata...

Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun is still quite popular, nice.

For some reason, I also really like the cover of that Boku no Hero Academia volume.

Nothing stopping the AOT monster it seems.

Can anyone tell me why Mob Psycho is not in this list? Is it not selling well because it's not as popular as One Punch Man or is it not as good? I know they sell each volumes in Japan because Amazon Japan says so.

THREE BL IN ONE WEEK!!! KYAH! THATS WHAT IM TALKING ABOUT.

Like expected, each volume 10 count sales is getting better than the previous volume. So happy <3

Damn, I'm happy that Junjou Romantica sold good but I think the sales is decreasing more than the previous volume >_< I really hope Shungiku sensei is going to set the final arc.

Just want to make sure that
36 *29,785 Omoichigai ga Koi no Tane is a BL manga as well. XD I'm so happy to see a new BL in this list.


If anyone is interested in BL manga sales, please check here.

Edit:- 10 count 5th volume is so cute <3

*5. 110,852 *,110,852 Ten Count Vol.5
*11. *58,636 *,*58,636 Junjou Romantica Vol.21

*4. 125,282 *,125,282 Owari no Seraph Vol.12
I'm also happy for my vampire kids :D

Glad to see My Bero, Food Wars, Gekkan Shoujo, Attack on Titan and 7 Deadly in the top 10.

One Piece still in the top 50, and it broke 2.4 million before doing so. Those are some nice legs. It may not be selling as much as quickly as it used to but rather it is getting those numbers over a stretch of time which is still great. As long as it gets those numbers.

I think its time for One Piece to say goodbye too.


What do you mean?
