That's the picture from the cover of the last combined issue of Jump, in case anybody doesn't know. And yeah, it's pretty good. Glad to see it's getting a little more visibility from being that little picture before among a million heads.
Does anyone have info on the sales of manga and Naruto in particular in the US and France? I mean, just how much do they sell? Because I see that there were only just over 3000 copies sold for Naruto's last volumes through Amazon.

117,000 copies sold...?
I guess mangaka don't even get much money from overseas sales of volumes, games and merchandise, right?
And isn't France has the biggest manga industry together with US (US comes in second, I think) outside of Japan?

This guy analysis bookscan reports every year. It is an interesting read.
For those who don’t know. Bookscan is something like the American oricon but unlike oricon it doesn’t have access to all sales but only to a certain percentage. They claim it to be 75%, other sources claim it to be something like 65%.
On comicbookresources you will find the Top 750 lists from 2003-2011
Here is a direct link to 2011:
Some guy from Live Journal once took the 2011 list and added around 30% to the sales to make it 100% with only a plus/minus 5% difference.
Of course it is not 100% accurate but this is the closest there is to “official” sale numbers and the dimension should be correct.

To tie with a blockbuster like XIII is quite an achievement. And yes I think France is the second market (we are also only 60 millions inhabitants) In term of diversity however I think there are more titles available than in US for sure.
lol nura sold pretty good in usa. And toriko is nowere to be seen.

Nice TOC. Nisekoi in 9th, hope this doesn't become a trend. I doubt it though.
Assassination Classroom is third which is great, been a while since toriko last took a place in the top 3 so i might catch up again soon. kuroko is still doing great
i'm excited about Bleach's color page
Edit : wow gintama is low, why is that ?

Furuichi arc surely gathers some positive votes for Beelzebub, I'm quite satisfied with this week TOC, though I don't want Nisekoi and Haikyuu get a lower rank than last week.
