Very interesting that there is a 450k difference between volume 10 and volume 11 of SnK.

Volume 10 sold only about 20-30k special edition copies.

volume 11 sold about 300k and volume 12 sold about 400k special edition copies which are not included in the normal edition count. Usually there is about 100k-200k difference between previous volumes because of the 4 month gap between releases.

When I first saw this ranking, I thought that there had been a mistake and that they had accidentally used an old ranking.

# 10
2,047,550 regular ¥ 450 | 30,404 special
2,077,954 39 weeks

# 11
1.85 million first print run
1,599,576 regular ¥ 450 | 275,066 special ¥ 1,200
1,874,642 22 weeks (21 weeks + 3 days)

# 12
2.20 million first print run
1,346,294 regular ¥ 450 | 327,119 special ¥ 2,980
1,673,413 5 weeks (4 week + presales)

Volume 11 regular edition is again out of stock at Amazon Japan, and that's probably the main reason why Titan 11 kindle version was the top selling kindle book in 2013.

Right now, it looks like Amazon is out of stock on the print versions of volumes 1, 9, 10 & 11.

I wish Toriko would do better, it's sales seem super low for a series that already has a anime..
