What is the world coming to? This is the second week in a row that Attack on Titan Vol 1 has not been on the list! But even without vol 1, Attack on Titan does keep the record of longest on the list with No Regrets holding at 10 weeks. Sword Art Online Fairy Dance vol 2 is pulling a yo-yo stunt as it bounces on and off the #1 spot. Master Keaton makes a huge bound upwards as it comes in at #2. Only one title debuted this week with Fairy Tail vol 45 landing in the middle. The list is surprisingly stable with only titles switching spots for the most part.

Attack on Titan has no problem keeping some dominance online.

The preorder for Vol 15 makes its debut this week as does Yen Press’ Akame ga Kill Vol 1. Assassination Classroom just barely missed the cut, but All You Need Is Kill Omnibus makes its return as does Spice and Wolf Vol 1 Novel. Not much else changes though.
