Yup, I knew it. AoT #1 couldn't stay off the list for long.

AOT volume 1 is really getting old good for Kodansha but the term big fishes in small pounds comes to mind ... other things just aren't selling enough this woudn't be possible in Japan ...
Also Finder volume 7 beating One piece ? Shocked because of the new Kickstarter from it, it seems to have gotten quite some fame and i don't like that let DMP go back to Tezuka stuff please.
Just some criticism i had be known.

Never expected to see a yaoi series hit the top spot, and against One Piece no less.

That mangaka's works seem very popular over here in the US. Her other work, Crimson Spell, has gotten top spot before.

Nice to see The Seven Deadly Sins again. Hopefully it's getting a boost in sales with the anime still airing.

Not sure Nisekoi volume 7 has been on the list for 10 weeks though as I only just received my copy the other day... Razz

Wow, One Piece outsold by a BL week 1............... Not sure what does that say................. Either One Piece didn't sell that much.............. or Finder sold a lot..............


Ahem, talking about BL, there's gonna be a close BL visiting us this Monday that ya mustn't miss to watch!

Asteroid to pass so close on Monday you'll be able to see it with binoculars

  • 2004 BL86 will pass about three times the distance of Earth to the moon
  • Estimate that the asteroid is about a third of a mile (0.5 kilometers) in size
  • Nasa says it poses no threat to Earth 'for the foreseeable future'
  • Observers in the Americas, Europe, and Africa have the best seats

It's behind manga that's 10-, 82-, and 6-weeks old - it couldn't have sold that much.

So Finder is doing well enough that it tops the sales charts when a new volume is published but DMP can't reprint the title without going through Kickstarter?

Maybe if your titles started with a big enough print run to fill your pre-orders you wouldn't have to worry about moving enough units.

Crimson Spell made it before. Same author actually.
