I 've been blogging this stuff recently; in particular, I've got the full list to 30, with sales numbers attached, up at http://bakudon.net/news/2008/04/10/sales-jp-weekly-comic-sales-for-414 .

Interesting to note that, for series with similar relative popularity, weekly Oricon figures come out about 10x higher for a series than yearly Bookscan figures.

Wow, Kimi ni Todoke is really popular! I keep seeing it everywhere! My local Kinokuniya had a huge display set up for it too. Yay!

i also keep seeing it everywhere! i was tempted to buy a volume of it but i wasnt willing to dish out the full price of $ 6.50 for it XD. i'll defenitely have to check it out if more scanlations come out.

yay for detective conan <3 and ouran <3 and FMA <3

i guess a lot of new shounen vols came out recently and thats why the list is dominated by them haha.

I'm disappointed that Detroit Metal City is only #9.

All right, Eyeshield 21!

I keep finding new reasons to read this series. Maybe this will finally put me over the edge.

And Conan on 2nd? D:
Seriously, never-ending series makes me a sad otaku


Still, Conan is a great series. Regardless if it's lasted for over 10 years or not. It will end eventually.
