    Re: Magazine Sales

    Sunday passed 800,000 in sales, in the wrong direction. Two years ago it's circulation was over a million. And it has nothing to do with what series are in it. As I noted only four anthologies made gains in circulation, three maintained their circulation from quarter 1. Sundays sales issues are not a problem with Sunday or the series within, they are a problem all magazines are facing.

    except for WSJ
    really, its amazing how WSJ actually manages to still increase the sales even though its #1.
    someone should scan Monthly Shounen Magazine. we see so little of it even though its sale is big.

    Re: Magazine Sales

    Including WSJ. In 1995 Jump's circulation was over 6 million copies a week. Those numbers were most likely inflated, most likely shops were throwing away an excess of copies every week, but in 2009 Shueisha is shipping less than half the copies they were fifteen years ago. Things have gotten better, Jump was the number two magazine behind Weekly Magazine in the late 90's early 2000's.

    btw: Most of the series in WSM are being scanned. Many are not caught up to the current issue but are being translated. Raws are posted for virtually every series. Don't look at MH though, Kodansha Comics are no longer available here. I'd rather more Margaret Comics, a great line of magazines that are far less popular online than they should be

    Re: Magazine Sales

    ...but... not anymore. at least its slowly going up again. of course with computer and internet, sales will never be like the times back then.
    by the way, about those times when Magazine sold better than WSJ, do you know the sale figures of those time?

    but aren't they mostly from tanks instead of actual magazine?
    EDIT: I was talking about Monthly Shounen Magazine. (MSM)

    Re: Magazine Sales

    My mistake, misread. ITA Monthly Magazine needs more love. I don't even know that many current series. Other than Beck I can't remember an MSM series getting big outside of Japan. Rival and Sirius, not very good magazines in my opinion, seem to get more attention than Kodnasha's monthly shonen flagship.

    Don't know the sales figures of Magazine or Jump from the late 90's. For whatever reason right as Dragonball and Slam Dunk were ending was the time Magazine launched there defining modern series. GTO, Love Hina, and Getbackers all started during this period. Magzine was eclipsed again once One Piece really came into it's own I guess.

    Most current Magazine series are being scanned from tank raws. There were so many series that weren't getting attention a year ago that there isn't much choice.

    Re: Magazine Sales

    I believe Ciao is the most popular shojo. They haven't released there circulation in years but last time they did it was similar to Young Jump and Young Magazine.

    Re: Weekly Oricon Comic Rankings

    I'm just wondering, does anyone know which publisher currently has highest manga sales? I think it is Shueisha.

    Re: Magazine Sales

    Ciao does not release circulation numbers so it's not on the list. It is number 1.

    Shueisha has the highest circulation magazine because they are the largest magazine publisher in Japan. Not just manga anthologies. Kodansha and Shogakukan are the two largest publishers over all. Shueisha has never challenged either.

    Re: Magazine Sales

    Hakusensha's shoujo magazines' sales numbers has dropped even lower for 2009? I really enjoy series from their magazines. But Young Animal has Chika Umino's 3-gatsu no Lion, BetsuHana has Glass Mask, Patalliro! and the sequel of Please Save My Earth. Just naming a few here ^^ LaLa has Natsume Yujinchou, Vampire Knight, Ouran High School Host Club, Kaichou wa Maid-sama!. Melody has many series from Natsumi Itsuki and Minako Narita (formerly active in LaLa) that I really love.

    Do you think Hakusensha is still going okay because of its international licenses of popular series?

    Re: Magazine Sales

    Magazine sales - fourth quarter 2009. Thanks to Heiji:



    Same trend for the last ten years, almost everything declines. Surprisingly Shonen Ace seems to be returning to prominence. The only magazine that looks like it is headed to cancellation is Shonen Sunday Super.
