    Hi everybody, not too long ago I saw an image on a message board which compiled various One Piece facts. One of the facts was that it has been the best selling manga series every year since 1999...

    People probably don't bother voting for HxH because they know it's going on hiatus in a few months no matter what they do.

    Trigger has an anime 'feel' to begin with, its genre and style might have encouraged a studio to pick it up early. I think it's a good decision, it's early but there's plenty of material for a 13...

    The yearly charts don't really show which sold most either though (well, okay, One Piece and Titan :p), because the data is so heavily skewed towards earlier releases. Looking at weekly sales isn't a...

    Magi's selling less than Conan again, now that the anime's over. That's a little disappointing.

    Nisekoi - 7
    Kuroko - 7
    Shokugeki - 7

    There's a lot of room for action in the magazine right now. Reborn, Medaka and Beelzebub all ended in the past year or so, thinning out a lot of the competition. If a new hit action series is going...

    I don't think it's likely that TWB succeeds. It's competing directly with Kuroko and Haikyuu for votes, it'll have to really distinguish itself to be noticed.

    Good point, I didn't consider that. Keeping it limited to just Jump examples, the first volumes of Kuroko and Medaka also didn't make the chart.

    It's rare but it has happened. The toy anime Bakugan Battle Brawlers was a flop in Japan but was extended due to its global success. The final season didn't even air in Japan at all.

    I'm guessing 400k is probably about the most a manga can hope to sell these days with next to no female following.

    It happens sometimes. Gintama and Sket Dance have both done it, and I believe Nisekoi has as well. Also the first two volumes of Toriko released simultaneously.

    Toriko received so much hype from Jump because it was and is popular with their core demographic. In other words, it sells magazines rather than tanks.
