Indeed it does! Volume 1 came out last week.
Fairy Tail and Ahiru no Sora are most popular. Then Negima, TRC, Daiya no A, Ippo, Bloody Monday, and Air Gear in particular order. SZS is a little less popular but still does well. I still feel like I'm missing one ^^

I'm interested in which will come out on top between Gintama and Reborn in overall sales this time around. XD
Kuroshitsuji and Pluto almost breaking the 500K mark.
I think this is the first time I get to track Asu no Yoichi's sales. o:
Reborn always outsells Gintama. The big competition will always be between Reborn and D. Gray Man; both have nearly identical sales, D. Gray Man usually maintains a slight edge.
D.Gray-man has had the edge recently, but Volume 25 of Reborn looks like it will pass Volume 18 of D.Gray-man next week (428,000). So the tables may have turned for right now.
Volume 18 didn't do quite as well as normal. Maybe because it didn't focus on any of the main characters, until the very end.

Not a very high selling week it would appear.
None of the big titles (500,000 plus selling) came out this week or last week, so sales were pushed down. In general, the third and fourth week of the month are dominated by Shonen Sunday and ShoMag, so they tend to be lower in sales.
Shonen Sunday all over the top 10. I enjoy each of the series they have there although they get dwarfed by WSJ series. Although most get titles get dwarfed by WSJ lol.
I wonder if Reborn's 25th volume will manage to break 500K or if it will drop off next week.
It will break 500,000 by the time volume 26 comes out. D. Gray Man 18, Reborn 25, and Gintama 29 all sold a little under average for some reason. DGM I can understand, the main characters weren't the focus, the other two I'm not so sure about
Kuroshitsuji's that popular? I mean, I know the anime helped the sales, but still, I don't know GFantasy has a large circulation.
When is the ranking for 20-26 coming out?
