    Are those Japan only figures? Or overall? Cause there are shops (like my local Kinokuniya stores) outside of Japan also sell them (import from Japan of course, so I wonder if those figures count)...and I bought Fairy Tail Vol 14 like on the first week too (it comes via air shipment o_o)

    There from Oricon, I really can't say weather they are accounting for imports or not. I would think so as they are manufactured there and someone has to account for there existence weather they will ultimately be sold at a Japanese book store in Japan or a Japanese book store in America.

    Re: Weekly Shounen Magazine (Shounen Mag by Kodansha)

    Yeah I saw Nana as #1...I know people like the series and such but sometimes you have to wonder when a series will ever end. (but that's another discussion)

    It is interesting that Kodansha really knows how to make, nurture and allow series to develop as opposed to the "hit or die" method Shueisha uses for Jump. You sort of wonder what could happen to a smaller but successful series like Double Arts if it had more time to stay and develop and, therefore, earn it's way into the higher tier.

    No disrespect to Nana or it's fans but it's to much of a soap opera for me.

    Double Arts and Mx0 should have been in Magazine from the start, it would have been a better place for them. Kodansha's editorial departments are famous for being supportive of mangaka. What's strange is for all the exiles that come over from other publishers, most seem to come from Shogakukan rather than Shueisha. In Jump's defense while they are quicker to cancel new series they are more likely to give a mangaka chance after chance to get it right. And they are better at finding new talent.

    DA definately but not sure on Mx0. It survived two years under the harshness of Jump's rules and only seemed to slack off in the rankings towards the end and being forced out by essentially the overactivity of '08s series. It probably would have survived a lot longer in Magazine...heck, it probably could have been more embraced with elements of Negima and Fairy Tail in it, but it's hard to really say at this point.

    Some famous mangaka have fled Shogakukan in favor of Kodansha recently. Fujisaki was a surprise as the other mangaka to leave were more famous. Raiku Makoto (Zatch Bell) is now under contract with Kodansha as is Naoki Urasawa. Sensual Phrase mangaka Shinjo Mayu fled Shogakukan in favor of Shueisha. There's more I can't remember, but a lot of mangaka have publicly stated Shogakukan does not treat all of their mangaka that well.

    Geez. If that's the case I may have to start reading Magazine. I don't actually read anything in it (Not cause I have anything against the Mag, just haven't found a series to draw me in.) But if everyone's jumping ship from Shogakukan to Kodansha, there has to be a reason.....I'm sure not everyone would cite 'Shokakukan sucks' as their reason...

    Re: Weekly Shounen Magazine (Shounen Mag by Kodansha)

    From what I've read Shogakukan's editorial department is far more dictatorial than Shueisha and Kodansha. Kodansha in particular is none for supportive editors that work as partners with, rather then bosses of, mangaka. Mayu Shinjo, mangaka of Sensual Phrase, wrote a great blog, summerized by anime news network on the subject last year, as she was leaving Shogakukan's Shojo Comic in favor of Shueisha's Margaret. It's worth noting that Takehiko Inoue, the most prominent mangaka to leave Shueisha for Kodansha that I can think of, returned to Shueisha a few years later. He now serializes a series for both publishers.

    Give Kodansha a chance Bomber! They're definitely my favorite publisher. My only problem with Magazine is how sports heavy it is. While I like that genre I don't love it. Still, Magazine's sports series are worlds better then anything in Jump. Zetsubou, Megane, and Bloody Monday are great non - sports series to start with, though none of them have been fully translated. That's the story of Magazine though. More series are translated then Sunday, but only so many are caught up. Kodansha's line of seinen is just amazing. I'm an unrepentant 1st Day fanboy
