posted on 2011-04-13 18:15 EDT
Gintama, Shingeki no Kyojin, Ouran, Worst, Toriko in top 5; Moshidora novel sells 2 million

As of April 10, Moshi Kōkō Yakyū no Joshi Manager ga Drucker no "Management" o Yondara, Natsumi Iwasaki's novel that inspired the upcoming Moshidora television anime series and live-action film, sold 2,020,434 copies. In February, the novel supplanted J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows as the best-selling "general" book since Oricon began reporting book sales in Japan in 2008. (Oricon reports comic/manga and bunko sales in separate categories from the "general" book category; there are comic/manga and bunko books that have sold more copies than Moshidora.)
