Zombie ☆ Gun
Oops, only managed to read the first 2 pages and have to rush off now Will continue later.
Now you've just left me wondering what else occurs this week.
Considering that Reversi is at least slightly more popular, there's no explanation for such a massive gap in sales. Maybe Yuujirou will make some revelation this chapter about why Zombie Gun sells so much better. I'm going for the explanation of Word of God.
.... pfft suddenly i feel like they are comparing Deathnote and One Piece sales.
I mean, most of WSJ titles sells very well for manga standard. But a manga called One Piece sells astronomically well that it dwarves all of those best sellers. I read somewhere that OP's sales even exceeded those of Harry Potter... if anyone can confirm this.
data posted by Zeromcd in the TOC thread is true, Death Note is the only manga to have more than 1 million printed before its second volume was released.
chapter 161 ch scan

Sorry everyone, I severely overestimated my speedreading/speedtranslating skills this morning. Anyway, here's the rest
Red Hawk has a scan for us.
This chapter was kinda weird.
I know there were chapters like this before but even so. It was like running at full speed then hit a brick wall head on.
Ashirogi finally on pair with Eiji on the questionnaires, and now this. Totally broke the story's momentum.
The only thing that this chapter was good for is to know there is a party for the Tezuka and Akatsuka Award. (And sorry to say that, but right now, who cares?)
i felt the same way last chapters were very fast paced and and suddenly this,
to me the sales thing is only a diversion for the girl who happens to work on anime seiyu(they put a huge picture of her to remember her)
She will have somesort of interaction with azuki and get her jealous or worse
And the endng its obvious they're going to kill one of their protagonist/antagonist (thats how they wilreach the onemillion mark)
oba realise he had to divide the atention from only one person just like near and mello that's why mello is the secret hero in the end .
by the way i find it curious mashiro mentioned ashita no joe as his favorite manga cause ,death note and ashita resemble in

The most interesting thing about the chapter imo, was definitely this Ririka character. She didn't actually do much in the chapter, but it's almost definite that she will be a pretty big feature in chapters to come. I'm really curious, of course, as to just how. Her smile at Saikou and her obvious show of displeasure when Katou told her that Saikou was already attached, made it clear that she has her eyes on Saikou. She probably knows Azuki personally or will rub shoulders with her sooner or later since they're both in the same industry. I predict that we will see her dropping in to "visit Katou" at the studio, then perhaps dropping some "casual mention" to Azuki thereafter. I believe there is a certain level of trust between Azuki and Saikou, but who knows, Ririka could really mess things up if she wanted to. She sure looks like she could.
As a SaikouxAzuki fan, I'm excited at the prospect of possibly seeing more interaction between them that doesn't involve their cellphones
I agree, I'm excited to see more Azuki...
But I hope Ririka won't become one of those super annoying love "rival" characters who tries to break them up or anything...
I mean, it might make for an interesting story, but personally, I'd rather not see it happen... XD
i am very amused because this chapter talks about the necessity of 'breather chapter', and guess what this chapter actually is?
and it actually not really a filler chapter because it introduces some possible story developments. (aka Ririka)
I see what you did there, Ohba+Obataaa =p
This chapter was pretty good, i really liked the introduction of Ririka, it might not be plain sailing for Azuki and Mashiro from now on! Hopefully she will pop up again, it might give Azuki some more screen time too. Hopefully Ririka will be to Azuki what Eiji is to Mashiro, a rival! Haaha, it'd be interesting to see.
This may be a bit off topic also, but i wonder if Ohba and Obata will show Hirimaru and Aoki Ko's wedding in the Manga, or whether that'll be off screen? Also Does the sound of Zombie Gun kind of remind anybody of Kore Ha Zombie Desu Ka?
