Credits and thanks to all those that linked to covers and other pages here, also to Heiji, Unok, Rena-Chan for the massive help in updating this. Especially for the latter 2 for the links and scans of the colour pages.

Hi guys, you will notice that the first post has been somewhat updated. There are still quite a few things missing that we weren't able to locate( full cover scans for the special edition covers, colour pages, other FT book scans, etc), but we hope with your help we can get some more of them.
With that said, we hope you can enjoy the work and post here if you find anything that we've missed.
Fairy Tail Volume 41
Ok, so this year FT is No. 9. A big drop from last year's No.5 with 4 million, whereas this year only sold 3 million. But that's to be expected, as it only released 3 volumes this year, not counting vol. 41 which only came out about a week ago. I'm assuming this is because of the 6 chapters released at once this year, thus delaying the volume releases.
Looks like Goldb mistyped vol. 37's release. Since it was typed as released in 2012, I thought the first volume that came out this year was Vol. 38. My memories are a bit patchy regarding the Vol. release dates, adding to the fact that I also miscounted the drop in sales.

Fairy Tail Cover 41 HQ (credits to Netorare):
On a related note, for those wondering, Fairy Tail's individual volumes would be higher, except volume 35 went on sale just before the period measured started, splitting it's sales between 2012 and 2013. Furthermore, volumes 35, 36, 38, and 39 all had limited edition versions which Oricon counts separately, and volume 40 was released the most recently and as such has had less time to sell. That's why if you go to the sales-by-volume list Fairy Tail 37 is the highest FT volume.
Really now? gotta wonder how much the sales would've made in total if the limited editions were counted in.
I like the cover for Volume 41 much better than the cover of Volume 40.
