Now I'm quite new noob to the subject of Manga sales, but what do the 2 numbers from the same entry indicate? For instance: 15, *,*39,098 1,176,688 Fullmetal Alchemist vol.23
On many entries the value in both numbers are the same.
Also, what's with the * (stars) and , (commas) ??


The first number indicates the number of sales that specific volume has accumulated for the week specified.
The second number indicates the number of sales that volume has garnered to date.

So if the two numbers are the same, it means that the specific manga volume was just released this week, as is the case with One Piece. In the case for FMA, it's already been out for a few weeks, thus the first number is drastically lower than the second number.

The *'s denote empty digit fields, from what I believe. And the commas are your typical separation of hundreds, thousands, millions, etc. Like one million is 1,000,000. And nine hundred thousand is *,900,000.


Thanks for the thorough explanation mate. Helped me a bunch :)

Junjou in top 10. :D

Sep 10, 2009 6:12 AM by simplyme

I figured Gintama would be closer to 500,000 maybe One Piece hurt it.

Sep 10, 2009 6:03 AM by mitamaking

Wait... One Piece beat second place by nearly over a million? Is this right...

Anyway... Vagabond, Gintama and Nodame Cantabile all in top ten. Woohoo.

Although it should have been one place higher.

Go, One Piece!!

Can't wait for the day that One Piece, Bleach and Naruto come out on the same month to see the difference on the same list...
