Saint Young Men has another impressive week. Gantz not doing too bad either. And i'm with Kaiten, Zetman should at least sale 100,000.
bunch of series that I never heard of ("What Did You Eat Yesterday?" - that sounds fun )
Rinne's selling fairly well for its first two volumes right?
or should it be bigger because of the author?
Rinne had good second week sales, so think that's a good sign. I expect Volume 3 to debut at over 100,000 copies.

St. Young Men is a great comedy that deserves 1st place again, I wish more chapters were scanned.
Shin Say Hello to Black Jack is probably a great sequel to Black Jack, glad to see it on the charts.
Kindaichi Case Files has some loyal followers, being in the charts for a third week now, and only having a difference of less than 100 volumes out of 200,000 is amazing.
Bokura ga Ita is brilliant, glad to see it's still popular after it's hiatus. Shame that there is a gap in translation, right in the middle of the series. I've been reading VIZ's releases until they catch up. Switch Girl!! is also a good series. There has actually been quite a bit of good shojo charting the last couple of weeks.
Nice to see Hayate with almost 300K by the third Week. could it be the A-tan effect?
also nice to see Saint Young Men as number one again, is one of the best comedy that i'm currently reading (the other one is Yotsuba&!).

Kuroko and Beelze continue to improve, Psyren has not. Bokura ga Ita spending two weeks in the top ten is sensational.
Toaru is a lot popular than I imagined. I'm happy
I'm guessing Psyren will die out eventually, since its not improving at all. Probably by next year.
did Kuroko hit 100K yet?
Kuroko will hit 100K next week. I think volume 6 will be the first to sell 100,000 in the first week. Volume 5 will probably do about what Beelze did this week. Considering Railgun is a side story of a light novel adaption 150,000 in two weeks is damn good.
Kuroko keeps selling more and more. Must get better as it goes. Beelzebub doing great too. It will probably break 100k in the first week next volume.
And I don't think Psyren will die just because it isn't improving. Nuero sold around there as well and it went on for a good amount of time.
I'm kind of dissapointed to see Ao no Exorcist's and Psyren's sales...
Ao is new. Give it time. Volume 1 did not even chart so this is an improvement. For a new series improvement is just as important as the actual figure.
