The Manga and Light Novel Sales Thread




Introduction

So I decided to shamelessly do a copy of Charizam's Weekly Anime Disc Sales but with manga thought it would be cool to have a thread on what manga are currently hot on the bookshelves. Feel free to discuss your favorite manga and how they are performing. You might also discover a few new manga that are selling well.

I'm kind of happy to see My Love Story doing well. I read the preview VIZ put in ESJ, and it made me look forward to the English volume release. I honestly haven't heard of it until I saw it in ESJ. I guess it's good to know that I'm getting into a series that is doing very well

It is fascinating to see Bleach go from #5 in 2010, all the way down to #15 in 2013. It is quite jarring really how much a series can shift so quickly. Of course, it is to be expected for Bleach, with all the blunders in story that are pretty hard to defend.

Wow, HxH really stepped up in sales these last few years. The anime's doing its job fantastically I must say.

And hooray for SAO, Kagerou Daze, and Hyouka!

If the sales aren't good in Japan, doubt we will ever get it here.

What i'm more interested in is The World God Only Knows. It does so good in Japan yet nobody has licensed it yet.

Space Brothers went from 4th in 2012 to 17th in 2013.

Being the 15th best selling selling manga in Japan is still pretty good though I'd say.

Especially when you think of just how many manga come out in Japan monthly with all of their different magazines and such.

Also with how many of those series get some quick hype early on but then fade after that.
