*8. *73,573 *,*73,573 Grand Blue Vol.9

Even without anime, this manga's sale is huge! With an anime adaptation, it's gonna break 150k+ I believe.


21. *24,716 *,*24,716 Darwin's Game Vol.13
23. *23,512 *,*23,512 Tomodachi Game Vol.10

Two of survival game manga that I'm following are doing okay without anime, so that's good.

35. *15,402 *,*15,402 Aho Girl Vol.10

I feel sad that it doesn't sell higher even with an anime, but I guess people get bored of the same kind of story without plot progression.

50. *12,286 *,*12,286 Harapeko no Marie Vol.2

RIP. No wonder it got canceled lol.

Fruts basket and Sakura CC are on the list. I can conclude that nostaliga can make you buy continuations (or spin oof, etc).

I mean fujoshi, didnt they sent him things like that they kill him or that he shoud comint suicide because hes homophobe ? wasnt there big fuss about it in Nippon ? Well thats what he gets when he pissed of half (if not majority) of the fanbase.


Last volume sold 720k though? Tokyo ghoul is doing just fine...


That's more than good

I thought it doesn't sell anymore when I didn't see the manga in weekly rankings for weeks

I guess it's the same thing for why I don't see kingdom in rankings as well maybe it's still doing fine too

Even before the new volume this is the fifth or sixth week without Tokyo ghoul re in the manga rankings already

Because volume 12 was released just the next month after volume 11 was released. That's why there's a been a huge gap in between Volume 13 which will be out on 19th this month.


You mean I don't see TG re in rankings because volume 13 isn't released yet

Coming to think about it again i remembered it's mentioned in chapter 144 I read the chapter few days ago and didn't notice that sorry...

I don't know about that... Who is this fujoshi and which chapter that pissed half of fanbase

Sorry I didn't keep up with news lately

I never expected World's End Harem to ever sell this well, looks like the introduction of the 2nd MC and new setting really got people's attention. Considering the premise of the manga, having a MC like the first one was frustrating to watch. Even the author had to use a character within the book to tell the readers to stay patient that the first MC will eventually get some action down the line.

Vol 1 *30,019

Vol 2 *34,396

Vol 3 *64,067

https://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=1624993

Vol 4 *96,024

Note the jump in sales starting with the third volume. That's when the new setting/mc comes in. As for an anime adaptation, that would be a bit difficult but then again something like Hybrid × Heart got an anime by IMS, though they didn't get to the parts when actual sex scenes starts to happen in the LN.

Tokyo ghoul re sales are pretty low lately

And who do you think is responsible for that.


If you mean ishida...

But I think the manga followers in Japan got sick of tragedy

It's painful to see the protagonist suffer every time at least for me

I thought re was meant to be where kaneki find his salvation but it's still dark and gloomy the same as the original Tokyo ghoul

I still like it though but many got sick of it already

12. *50,319 *,*50,319 Gakuen Babysitters Vol.15

I’m happy to see this here, I hope it sell more once the anime is out.

17. *29,122 *,233,263 Kinou Nani Tabeta? Vol.13

I really want to read this. Once it’s completed Ofc.

34. *15,674 *,*16,071 Ameiro Paradox Vol.4

Omg, after all this years. Finally the new volume is out.

Gintama reached 70 volumes :OO

No big boost for black clover, maybe it's having a digital boost who knows.
Bokuben and kimetsu doing good too.

Oct 12, 7:27 AM by ichii_1

It's nice to see Gintama and Black Clover at the top.

Black Clover anime?...........

A shame Hanstu x Trash vol. 13 didn't rank but coming out on the 6th perhaps understandable. Hope it ranks next week. Liking the LE version of it as well.

Nice to see Shuumatsu no Harem selling very well again, hope it continues and some day we can get an anime version. Seven Seas just announced that they've licensed it for their new Ghost Ship imprint as well. More good news.

18. *26,043 *,*26,043 Yu☆Gi☆Oh! Arc-V Saikyou Duelist Yuuya!! Vol.2
19. *25,859 *,*25,859 Yu☆Gi☆Oh! Arc-V Vol.4

Huh, wasn't aware there was an Arc-V spin off manga, hope Viz licenses that for over here, liking the card that comes with it. Nice to see both selling well though.
