Kekkai Sensen had the most notable boost of the season. It's like 500% more.
Deserves it.

Note that Arslan Senki only has 3 volumes! Its sales boost have been more than for Kekkai Sensen.

Birdmen sales are disappointing, Tanabe-sensei's writing deserves way more than that, same thing applies to Gugure! Kokkuri-san, this series is hilarious

Golden Kamuy have great sales & great rankings, WYJ must be happy

Also I'm intrigued by Akuma Game, I never read it but if it popular enough to stay in WSM for 2+ years shouldn't its sales be better than this?

Kokkuri-san only came out on the 22nd, it could be higher next week. Agreed that it's hilarious, although I keep wondering how the hell some of the jokes would work in the volumes since it really seems to make fun of being in a magazine a lot lately.

WSM series aren't that high profile in general, I mean, sure, series like Nanatsu or Fairy Tail sell great but most of the series in the magazine sell around 40-100k per volume (at least the decent sellers)
So it isn't a wonder Acma Game survived this far with such sales

Heh. I dunno if I've ever seen Innocent rank on the Oricon before. That's pretty cool. It's not a really high-selling series but I'm glad to see it there at all.

Dungeon Meshi is doing AMAZING!!

I read the first chapter like 2 months ago & thought it was a solid meh. not bad & not good. just meh
maybe it's because I'm just so sick & tired of the mmorpg premises in manga or maybe because art was not appealing at all
I just couldn't get into it
those sales are very impressive, It made me feel like I'm missing out on something great, maybe I'll give it a second chance in the future

Pretty interesting..

The only volume we can see the full potential, Nisekoi #15 (431,452) for not having a special edition taking away sales..

Already sold more than the highest volume on the last period. 120) 424,194 Nisekoi 10

I find it really hard to believe that Toriko 32 didn't get past 285k since November when it was already at 257k in its 3rd week.

I find it really hard to believe that Toriko 32 didn't get past 285k since November when it was already at 257k in its 3rd week.
There is obvious reason for not being on the list. And that is because the list covers sales from "This list covers sales surveyed from November 17, 2014 to May 17, 2015." so anything sold before that is not included. Volume 32 of Toriko came out on November 4, meaning whatever sold until November 17 is not included and that's majority of those 257k sales. If v32 showed on this list, it would have been with sales only generated after November 17. Proof to that is lots of older series volumes, like Assassination Classroom, which 1st vol is at 98th place, selling almost 300k. While in reality total sales for that volume are likely more than 1 million right now. Otherwise v32 of Toriko, is quite likely more than 320k right now, maybe even close to 350k.

The other thing I'm not sure is if digital sales are included. As much more and more people are starting to purchase digital books. Which results in lower physical sales.

Oh thanks Unok.
I also wondered how My hero academia vol 1 could sell less than the other 2 volumes, but now it makes sense.
That means vol 1 of MHA already sold close to 400k which is really impressive.
