On Amazon it's like 140 dollars, and on Barnes & Noble it's 150 dollars. But the 2 and 3rd volumes are like 8 dollars. What exactly happened here?

Supply and demand. First volume came out back in 2012, production stalled. First run editions of the manga that has no signs of being reprinted surged in demand when the anime came out 2013 boosting back its popularity, volume 2 onwards now in production since 2014.

Books-A-Million lists it for $12 as "Limited Availability - Ships within 2-4 weeks." Probably would get cancelled.

Didn't DMP end up doing another printing of v1? I remember after the anime came out and I went hunting for v1, I ended up ordering it via Amazon Canada because no US retailer had it in stock and got screwed on shipping. I was complaining then about the third party marketplace prices ($30-$50), but the prices I'm seeing now are insane.
