Weekly Top Ten – July 11, 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.

  9. Seraph of the End Vol 1     ↵ 3
  10. Noragami Vol 5     ↓ 2

The debut of a new Sword Art Online Progressive has sent the to the top spot. Tokyo Ghoul Vol 1 and Naruto Vol 70 stay steady at #2 and #3 respectively. The predicted fall of Big Hero Six vol 1 seemed to have been premature as the title rockets back up to take the #4 spot. Seraph of the End does well as its first volume returns while the newest volume holds steady. Assassination Classroom vol 1 also makes its return while Noragami Vol 5 falls dangerously close to falling off, stopping just short at #10. It’s interesting to see a whole new generation of titles dominating, led by Attack on Titan, after Bleach and Naruto did so for so long.

Pre-orders Prison School Vol 1 and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 1: Phantom Blood vol 3 make the list while Naruto Vol 71 falls dangerously close to dropping off. Bleach Vol 64, on the other hand, rockets up the list to land at #3. I’m happy to see shojo The Demon Prince of Momochi House Vol 1 chart this week. Shojo titles don’t make it often enough.
