It's not really well known at mangahelpers, but it is apparently really popular at /a/.
Go Haikyu!!!! Not bad for the first volume of a sports manga by a relatively unknown author.
Who would have thunk it, Bleach got the number 1 spot. Pajama at 21 and Hq at no.22 not bad for the first volume sales.
Number 01 isn't a big thing, but selling 521K copies is great.
Even after getting a full week, many previous volumes sold around 100k less.
Maybe this one will pass 700k till the end of the year.
This is the 31-50 part for this week:

Haikyuu has lower selles that magico volume 1. That is kind of strange.
Then why jump didn`t print more copies for the first week? Haikyuu had very good position in the Toc.
Like anything else in the print business it's a question of money. If the author was well-known or even had previous success more copies would have been printed.
A recent example of this was the first volume of BUYUDEN which was given a massive 220,000 first volume printing and ended up not even getting into the Oricon top 50.
BUYUDEN was most likely given that massive printing thanks to the Author being famous and the good rankings it had in Shounen Sunday but it turned out to be a massive flop.
