The New York Times gets their numbers of print sales from retailers. 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.

Well, what a surprise. New shonen releases take over the list, and they are all at top. JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 1 debuts respectably at #3 as does Time Killers, Kazue Kato’s short story collection. The three shojo titles on the list bunch together in the middle with what is third-to-last volume of Library Wars, and the final volume of Dawn of the Arcana. Seraph of the End‘s second volume debut was able to bring back the first volume for a repeat charting.

  10. Alice in the Country of Clover: Knight’s Knowledge Vol 2     ∗

The top two titles remain unchanged from last week, and that’s great news for One Piece! Yu-Gi-Oh! 5Ds holding on is a little less of a shock. Seven Seas Entertainment makes a good showing with 2 titles charting; Mayo Chiki, a male gaze title, and Alice in the Country of Clover, a female gaze title. Equal gaze time at last! Kodansha does well with their new title Noragami charting in its first week and Attack on Titan: No Regrets returns.
