OPM is slowly getting to 1mln for its v1. Seems to be having a slower anime boost than a few other series

Probably since most of the anime watchers are fans of the manga beforehand

Seven Seas licensed the series earlier this year, they plan on releasing two complete omnibus collections, the first volume drops January 26, and the second will drop May 31.

Happy to see Orange's final volume sitting on top of the chart. Even if it doesn't stay there, a nice way for it to go out. And, to add to that, volumes 1-4 also made the top 50! Only volumes 5 and 2 haven't hit 500k, but all the others have hit it or have gone over. Would be nice if all the volumes end up hitting 500k.

I've already out the 2 omnibus collections from Seven Seas on pre-order. A little sad that the releases are so far apart...only because I'm going to wait until I have both volumes before I read it. From the little I know of the story, I don't think it is one that I could start in January, and then have to wait until May to read it off.

I'm a sucker for stuff that involves time travel, and it'll eat away at me if I only read half the series. I'll end up reading it all once I have it all...and probably will be done in one sitting. Laughing

That's the effect of the live action movie adaptation, even though it hasn't come out yet. Also, I read the last volume, and despite the build-up, the ending was rather... Meh. Mediocre. Disappointing.

Warms my heart to see Orange doing well. I quite liked the ending; as someone whose been through spoiler[mild depression], I thought it summed up the feeling of spoiler[getting stuck in your own head] pretty well, as well as the cathartic release of spoiler[breaking free]. Smile

I guess I feel that it should have spoiler[shown the future of the new timeline.] I've also been through clinical depression, so yeah, it resonated with me, but I felt that the ending was... incomplete.

Fair enough. I wouldn't be opposed to that, but to me, this was very efficient storytelling, in that it had a conflict, resolved it, and then ended--no more, no less (kind of the opposite of what we get in YA lit nowadays, with far-reaching epilogues). I could definitely see why others would want more, though. ^^

One Punch Man anime boost is very good and I'm sure it would reach 1 million by this year. If it continues at this rate we might see a Season 2 announcement...
