Weekly Top Ten – March 7, 2015

Weekly Top Ten Manga

Every week, the New York Times and Amazon posts the top ten bestselling books. The New York Times gets their numbers from print sales from retailers, while Amazon and Vizmanga.com calculates their own numbers. Once a month the Nielsen Bookscan posts their top twenty graphic novels of which manga is included. Offered here is a listing of these books with their status this week compared with the previous week, and some way-off analysis of the activity.

  10. Assassination Classroom Vol 2     ↔

Viz’s print debut of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 1 takes over the top spot this week. Also debuting at #2 is Yen Press’ High School DxD vol 4, a title that fits with Seven Seas Entertainment’s Dragonar Academy Vol 5 which returns to clock in a second week. Yen Press sneaks in a second new title with Judge Vol 6 just making the top five. There isn’t much movement otherwise, with most titles only moving a couple of spots. Deadman Wonderland Vol 7 takes the deepest plunge, dropping 5 places, while Assassination Classroom Vol 2 settles in to the tenth spot.

Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past is finally pushed out of the top spot and down one by Seven Seas’ Monster girls of Monster Musume Vol 6. Attack on Titan Vol 15 is getting comfortable in the #4 spot. I wonder how long that will last though with its debut coming up in a few weeks. JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 1 Phantom Blood Vol 1 hangs on to the top five, but the pre-order for volume 2 dropped off pretty quickly. There are only two debuts this week, both from Viz; Kamisama Kiss Vol 17 and Claymore Vol 26.

  10. Naruto Vol 68     ↵

Vizmanga’s top ten is all over the place. Deadman Wonderland is enjoying a major surge with five volumes charting including the newest, Vol 7, taking the top spot. Bleach Vol 63 stays steady at #2, while fellow Weekly Shonen Jump titles Naruto‘s and One Piece‘s previous volumes return. Naruto‘s newest came out this week, so I would expect it to pop up next week.

Nielsen Bookscan for the Month of February, 2015

AoT 113. Attack on Titan Vol 1     ↓ 5
16. Naruto Vol 68     ↓ 11
18. Akame ga Kill! Vol 1     ∗

Very little changed with the Bookscan numbers from February. Attack on Titan and Naruto remain on the list, though both take a tumble, with Naruto falling the most, 11 spots. A new title joins them though, Yen Press’ Akame ga Kill! Vol 1, which as made moves on both the NYT and Amazon top tens. Maybe it can make some movement for March. A new Naruto comes out this month as well, so the change next month may be the volume number. It remains to be seen if JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 1 can take a spot.

∗ = New Release
↑ = Title moved up specified # of spots
