Whoa, I didn't expect Seraph to fall off with that many volumes compared to the last one.

Does this only count new volumes? I read on another site My Hero Academia vol. 8 was in 8th place with over 100k backlog sales.

These are volume sales. Volume 8 was not in 8th place with 100k, it was the series as a whole that was 8th with 100k in terms of series sales of this week.

Kimi ni Todoke is really dominating the chart by a milestone. Smile Black Butler is also faring comfortably at No. 2.

Where's the pic from? From what manga, I mean. Looks familiar but can't quite place it...

Wow, Happy Sugar Life actually made it to the Top 50 at #37. Japan must like their yandere yuri! Laughing

The black-haired girl and the blonde girl? From Kimi ni Todoke. (first title on the list, which is usually how they select the art to use for an article like this.)

Woah, didn't see that there. Not really a fan. I had to drop it since it was too dark for me...

And thanks for the info, Iys!

That's what I was thinking, but it looked so much like it belonged in a yuri title that I was confused too... LOL

(Is there a yuri subplot in Kimi ni Todoke? I haven't gotten around to reading that one...)

@zensunni, haha, not that I'm aware of! I think the girls shown are Sawako (main character) and Kurumi, the spoiler[rival girl] from earlier in the series. I do appreciate that the series places equal importance on the friendships between the girls and things going on in their lives, along with the main romance plot.
