    Yeah, Sket Dance in 2nd place is so awesome.
    Considering that this is the same manga that used to lurk in the bottom 5, in danger of cancellation.

    Almost exact opposite situation of.....

    So was the canceled series any good, or was it just as forgetable as Minea X Minea ?

    I must literaly be the only person who actively remembers that !

    We don't really have a general manga sales thread do we? I kinda wish we did...

    8/15~8/21

    rank/last week rank/weekly sales/total sales/number of times to appear on the list/number of days counted for the new release/title & volume

    Woot, one of my favorites Kingdom is doing well.
    And Shingeki no Kyojin is selling extremely well considering where it's published.

    OP is, as usual, on a complete different scale than everything else.

    Kekkaishi is still selling ok, even tho it ended right?
    Theories : Buggy will become a shichibukai just cuz of the Impel Down lvl 6 prisioners behind him, Moria is alive but in a coma, Ivankov will find Sabo in the New World as 1 of the Rev. Army commanders, next nakama is a fishman something like a Great White

    This is troublesome, indeed it is. Gentlemen do not go back on their word, and therefore I have to find a solution to this problem. And as always, relativity theory comes to aid!

    Spoiler:
    How do I hold my breath for a week, if the maximum time I can hold my breath in normal circumstances equals to one and a half minute? Time dilation is the answer!
    T = 1.5 min = 90 s
    t = 1 week = 604 800 s
    c = 300 000 m/s
    What was the formula for determining dime dilation again? Ah, yes!
    t = T/√(1-(U^2/c^2))
    From this equation, let's express the velocity U.
    U = c√(1-( T^2/t^2))
    All that is left, is to insert the actual data into the equation.
    U = 300 000√(1-(90^2/604 800^2)) = 300 000√(1-(8 100/365 783 040 000)) = 300 000√(1-0.000000022) = 300 000√0.999999977 = 300 000 * 0.999999988 = 299 999.997 m/s
    Answer: U = 299 999.997 m/s
    And, as simple as that, to keep my word true, all I have to do, is to hold my breath while moving at 299 999.997 meters per second.

    Heh, good to see Negima holding it's own with the best of them.
    (even if Fairy Fail is above it)

    And yes, a weekly sales thing would be pretty fun.

    Horray for Shingeki no Kyojin. Never heard of kingdom though, is there a group that scans it?

    Edit: Nvm I've read it before but I forgot the name because there were only 5 or 6 chapters. It wasn't that great in my opinion though, unless it gets way better later on...

    No kidding, why are there so many Fairy Tail fans? What is it about the series that's such a draw for the manga consumer public, I don't get it

    I'd guess the same thing about One Piece: There are many different characters and many different powers(regardless how original or interesting they are). There is also the companionship theme and lots of action.
    Also, the first arcs weren't all that bad: it managed to grab a decent-sized following that keeps reading the series.

    I dunno, I guess lots of people like bland, uninspired shit. Bleach used to do well in WSJ for ages, even when the volume sales weren't that impressive.

    Same reason Avatar made 2 billion dollars. The common masses go for the familiar, generic crap regardless of any actual innovation, quality or soul.

    I watched Avatar hoping for James Cammeron to impress me once again only to find out that the story is Pocahontas just replace the indians with blue cats and the army and scientists with english settlers. The only thing that movie really had going for it was the pwetty graphics and we all know how far pwetty graphics can help a series out.

    An I still say that Mashima is a step above OH GREAT

    At worst it's simply generic.

    Same applies to Bleach. It's just that these are crappy in relation to their popularity is all.
