On Toriko, when is the next volume to be released, or has it already come out? The last volume came out in June.

Does "Spoof on Titan" sound wrong to anyone else? Laughing

Happy to see Nisekoi and Say I Love You with volumes around 250k. Though, Nisekoi did that in its first week, while the other Say I Love You did it in about 3 weeks.

Nice to see that Inu x Boku SS's last volume has almost gotten to 350k. Outselling volume 10 in its first 3 weeks, seems like a nice way for a series to be going out. Which reminds me, gotta get around to reading volumes 1-3 and have 4 on the way. Laughing

What are you talking about? There is 1 million in sales with the special edition. The sales are great.

Titans 14 does look like it has a steep drop from Titans 13, but it may be due to August 9 release date.

This ranking is for August 4-10, so only two days of sales.

Then again, the difference between No Regrets 1 and 2 is less steep.

We'll see how its second week will compare.

These rankings are beyond meaningless and empty, no relationship to the quality of the series at all or it's replay value. More like a gauge of hype and wasted otaku dollars.

Laughing Yes, but let's just ignore that these numbers can spell the death of a series seeing publication then.

Quality of a series is subjective. I know I've read many things and watched many shows that I loved...only to see them die off due to low ratings/sales numbers.

Ahh sucks that happened to you, all the manga/anime I've ever enjoyed have been completed except for maybe 1-2 I cannot recall. I don't even collect volumes of manga, I read HQ scans online. Yes, money is very important for funding reasons but I think certain lines get crossed when its ONLY about how much money a series can generate and not trying to produce a well written series, something completely objective, not subjective.
