    After the drama aired first season sales were similar to Air Gear. Maybe book stores are taking it slow with season II, seeing if demand is still there.

    Re: Weekly Oricon Comic Rankings

    I know that the top 5 series at the moment are One Piece, Naruto, FMA, Nodame Cantabile and Nana (not sure about the order), but which series belong in the top 10 in terms of sales?

    And which are the stronger newcomer series (the newer series basically)?

    well, if we base it on 2009 Japanese Comic Ranking, the next five are Naruto, Bleach, St.Yong-man, Kimi ni Todoke, and Kuroshitsuji. (Hunter x Hunter probably lies somewhere here, but its so irregular)

    Nodame's gone, and FMA will probably end sometime in 2010, so I guess Naruto will move its way up to top 5 (since it seems to be the only series other than the current top 5 that can reach 1M) :P

    don't know much about newer series, but I'm sure Toriko and Bakuman will get bigger with an anime.
    Never read St.Youngman, and I'm not too familiar with it, but seems like this series has potential for getting much bigger.

    Re: Weekly Oricon Comic Rankings

    I expect Kimi ni Todoke to become a million seller soon, assuming the anime gives it the proper boost. HxH and Bleach have almost identical volume sales.

    St. Youngmen is an amazing series, very, very funny. Who knows how big it can get. There have only been 3 or 4 volumes so far.

    can anime sale boost it that much? (didn't follow the sales enough to see it, so I don't know....)
    the recent volume/chapters of Kimi ni Todoke seems like it could end pretty soon so I wasn't too sure. (of course, it could always drag on....not too familiar with how shoujo does with popular manga)

    Also Kimi ni Todoke is a late night anime. Nodame Cantabile had a live action dorama to boost its sale, since doramas are aired at prime time. For a shoujo manga as mainstream as Kimi ni Todoke, it probably can't gain alot of new fans from an anime. Kimi ni Todoke is aired at the same time slot as Ouran (or so I heard) and is the 2nd best late night time slot after noitamina (or so I heard), so there is probably some boost...

    Re: Weekly Oricon Comic Rankings

    If an anime does not boost sales of the manga it is a failure in the eyes of the publisher. Late night anime are still popular, maybe more popular: Nana, Nodame Cantabile (anime), Haruhi Suzumiya, Bakemonogatari, Clannad, Air, Kanon were all late night anime. The only anime that are aired during the day are kids stuff and shonen action anyway.

    Nana was popular because of its live action movie. Nodame Cantabile is popular because of its dorama, hence more people tuned in for the anime (highest record for late night anime). The others, Haruhi, Clannad, AIR, Kanon and Bake are all targeted at otakus anyway, hence a late night slot is fine (otakus either willing to stay up, or record it or download it off share/PerfectDark). Kimi ni Todoke is a mainstream shoujo series, most of its potential fans probablly would not watch late night anime (since it's mostly otaku orientated stuff). I don't think the anime would give that much more boost to the manga sales. Noitamina is the only only late night time slot I know that 'normal' people actually would watch, hence it is all non-otaku stuff.

    I did wonder why didn't they do a dorama series instead, could have been cheaper and gathered a larger fanbase. Just wait for a few months, I'm sure a Taiwan live action series would show up soon enough.

    No anime would go for prime time, other then anime that could have a wide fanbase (such as shounen or family comedy). Because the animation studio/sponsers pays for a time slot, late night time slot is the cheapest slot they can get (anime pretty airs on TV like an extra long advert). Also, prime time is usually variety shows or dorama.

    But yes, a prime time anime would be able to gather a fairly large fanbase. But that usually shows up with manga sales and TV ratings, the DVD sales of mainstream is usually quite 'meh'. Otaku niche stuff would always sells better.

    Ratings don't matter for late night anime. KimiTodo's impact will be on DVD.

    Let's hope it sells well. But I honestly doubt it'll be a mega-seller. The only shoujo series recently selling more then 10k per volume is Natsume. Toshokan Sensou did about 9k and Ouran did 7k. If KimiTodo does 10k per volume, I'll be really proud of the sales (5k is the average breaking point).

    FMA:B has Code Geass R2's time slot right? I heard the ratings were only going downhill with FMA:B, but it's the most recorded anime series (or so I heard). I don't know about the first series, it could be at the same time slot...

    That rating is for the first series. Sounds like decent rating for me (when prime time dorama usually gets about 9-12%). How much boost boost it gave to the manga sales I have no idea, I barely knew what anime was when the first series was airing .

    Anime usually can push a manga into mega-seller territory. Two prime example FMA and Kuroshitsuji. FMA was only selling around 100k during it's early run, but the anime push into 1 million per volume. Kuroshitsuji was only selling around 100k and now sold 600k because of the anime. FMA was aired on prime time while Kuroshitsuji was late night. Sometimes it doesn't really matter what times it aired, both late night or prime time can push the sales of manga

    That's interesting. Cross Game was selling about 250k before anime and only about 300k after anime, and that's a morning anime. I think it really depends what magazine it runs in too. Nodame and NANA have such high sales possibly because no one bothers with the magazine, hence no one knew about them before the live-action/anime. Cross Game runs in Shounen Sunday, and that is reletively popular magazine, most of its potential fans are already fans.

    Actually even a webanime could boost the sales. Before anime, Hetalia (printed edition) sold about 50k in the first week. Now it sold 450k, on par with mainstream manga (despite most of it can be read online since it's a webcomic). I'm looking forward to the 3rd volume to see how well it would sell.
