Unsurprised about Memesis, but I’ll miss the pretty art.
Switch being on the up is a VERY good sign! I doubt it’ll ever get big but showing growth and having the previous volumes selling is at least a strong start

Memesis art was gorgeous, but the writing style and the way of its fanservice wore out on me quickly tbh. Hope the author will stick around of course.

Switch older volumes showing up is actually huge. Sport series tend to overally start slower but they have more consistent growth and this proves that Switch have quality.

Memesis was funny, but yup it kinda strayed too far in some things. Hope for come back too for Yagyu, maybe with a writer?

first of all, I would like to say that relative position doesn't really matter unless it is by a huge margin...
also in the long run, legs matter more than initial sales, (especially for the lower end of the spectrum)

with that said,


First day

Switch vol. 1 & 2
142 9784091284006 switch 小学館 波切敦 2018.11.16
160 9784091285690 switch 小学館 波切敦 2018.11.16

Gofun Vol 2
104 9784091285751 5分後の世界 2 小学館 福田宏 2018.11.16

Gofun Vol. 1
86 9784091283993 5分後の世界 1 小学館 福田宏 2018.9.18


estimates for latest volume will come next week (~Tuesday)
I see, still buzzing to see Switch on the up and come. Hopefully, it shows some legs.

Switch 3-pack still in shoseki daily ranking and older Tonikawa volumes showed up too. Surprisingly positive week.

Shame that Marry Grave ended. I was enjoying the manga in the beginning and it was kinda bringing my nostalgia for the older adventure/fantasy series. I have seen a lot of people saying that Rosarie should have been the main character, that the flashback was the best, etc. But for me that was where the manga went downhill. I was enjoying the manga while it was Riseman's adventure, the flashback felt like entirely different manga, which I overall didn't like. And it was a bit too lengthy for me, there were like ~20+ chapters flashback out of ~40 chapters. After that it added an annoying kid and it was too late to recover. In my point of view I see why it failed, although I see most western fans don't agree with me. Shame, the manga had so much potential, but went in a wrong direction and it was too late to recover after that.

I was feeling that Memesis was cancelled when they rushed to defeat the Demon King, but was surprised it continued after that. But unfortunately it's still getting cancelled.

I'm hoping for Defense Devil/Area D author to return soon, it's been 3 years since Area D ended.

Major bummer about Marry Grave and now Memesis. Daiku claims yet another victim. As for the newest batch of series, I think the imouto one might be my favorite, with Fire Rabbit and possibly Undine as runner-ups.

Just when I wanted to look up a few volumes on book-rank.
推定販売数について

問い合わせが多いのでもう一度告知致しますが、POSランキングについては全て削除いたしました。再度掲載することはありません。申し訳ございません。
Went to the shoseki ranking blog and Marry Grave really only ranked for a single day, I thought I had missed its ranking for the following days. Ouch.

Ōgaki created a pixiv fanbox page. Never heard about that service before, but it appears to be like a Japanese version of patreon. If you always wanted to buy him a bento you can do so now.

Issue #8 features.

Only one more features section after this one, and then you'll have to check out the twitter account for news and stuff. I will say this about the new serialization round --I didn't expect to like much other than RYOKO honestly, but it's all been a ton of fun, and Ano Natsu/Undine might even get me reading genres I generally dislike which is saying a lot.

I thought that Tantei Xeno was actually doing way better, vol 4 didn't even charted in 3 days? this makes Switch looks very good.

Issue #8 editorial

As a reminder, after issue 9 the "features" section will no longer be on the blog and you'll have to check out the twitter for that news.

Speaking of the twitter:


I'm seriously considering cover all Shounen Sunday magazines on twitter, but I'd have to take donations (trust me I'd rather not if I could.) both to cover the costs of buying three magazines (Super, Gessan and Weekly) and to gauge interest. I'm not at all sure how I'd go about this so any help is appreciated! Plus, y'know if you are interested in me doing this I'd like to hear that too.
