Minor correction, but the original creator of Mahōka Kōkō no Rettōsei is Tsutomu Satō, not Sajima. (I only know this because I just happened to see the name in a volume of DRRR!! yesterday...)

Decent second week for Sukitte Ii na Yo which is good to see, just a little under where volume 10 was at by this time.

Attack on Titan has to be getting a second season for the anime. Look at these sales and they jumped up dramatically, since the airing of the anime.

Good for them and I look forward to reading/watching where this story goes.

As for One Piece, still a powerhouse and with no ending in sight, who knows how long this will go on for.

Is it safe to say, the manga industry (in Japan at least) is doing really well? That's alot of paper and books they produce each month!

Attack on Titan needs season 2 because the manga is nowhere near done...  It will be a long wait however as the anime done weekly has almost caught up to the manga which is done monthly... Somehow anime is faster!

In the commentary track for Aiura I was listening to this morning it was interesting as the mangaka Chama was included along with the main seiyuu. He said he is envious of the animators!!!

The manga industry overall is doing incredible!(I dream that in my country it was like that) The problem is that each year is declining steadily. If that decline don't stop, then sooner or later the industry will enter a crisis(the decline is really slow. If I had to estimate I would say it would take 50 years to be significant). Some people think that the industry is already in a crisis, because in the 80s-90s it was a lot of times bigger than it is now, and because some small magazines are ending, when before survived comfortable.

There are now half as many teenagers in Japan as there were 25 years ago. It's dumb to expect that the manga industry would still see steady sales numbers when the target audience is in decline. The manga industries crisis but a small fragment of a much larger population crisis in Japan

I would say that you could see that sort of economic collapse due to the aging demographics in Japan in just about every section of society. It's certainly influenced some of Japan's other notable export industries, like video games and consumer electronics.
