Weekly Top Ten – July 25, 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.



New York times Bestseller List for the week ending July 18, 2015

  10. Sword Art Online: Progressive Novel Vol 2     ↓ 7

A new title takes over the top spot this week as The World’s Greatest Love from Viz Media’s SuBLime imprint debuts at #1. 12 Beast Vol 2 from Seven Seas Entertainment tries to make its debut higher, but can only get to the #3 spot as Tokyo Ghoul Vol 1 blocks it. Big Hero Six Vol 1 is doing well as it hits its 17 week on the list, only 90 weeks behind Attack on Titan Vol 1. Assassination Classroom Vol 1 has had its ups and downs, but it’s just hit 16 weeks on the list, making it the third oldest. Not bad for a title considered a “worst” graphic novel for kids by the ALA.

The top title doesn’t change at Amazon for the 6th week in a row as Tokyo Ghoul Vol 1 holds on tight to the top spot. The pre-order for Naruto Vol 71 holds its own at #3. The pre-order for My Hero Academia Vol 1 returns as its release date draws closer. Attack on Titan Vol 1 returns as well showing it not invincible, but more like a super ball, always bouncing back. Legend of Zelda A Link to the Past makes a big bounce down. Does it have what it takes for the bounce back up? The only new title on the list if from Yen Press with their perennial top seller Black Butler, now at Vol 20, but their other titles No Game No Life Novel Vol 2, Prison School Vol 1 and Akame ga Kill Vol 3 all show they have some life in them.
