The Endeavor arc was great. Japan keeps rising to the taste.

This was its second month, and it came out near the start of the previous month.

Glad Golden Kamuy got a boost, one of the few seriously good shows with good anime adaptation that made me read the manga.

Wow, Golden Kamuy is selling very well. And Otoyomegatari <3

Glad to see the 2 year hiatus didn't actually kill it. It definitely dropped 50k at least, unless I am remembering incorrectly, but this is still great.

Well, to be fair, the manga is losing sales and sales on each volume.
