Japan’s Weekly Manga & Light Novel Rankings For August 16th, 2015

Japan’s Weekly Manga & Light Novel Rankings For August 16th, 2015 The latest rankings for the world of manga and light novels have arrived and we’re positively shocked that Attack on Titan took the top spot for the second week. Well, not really, but even though it may not be ramping up in the same way as the earlier volumes it’s still performing strongly as it goes on as the 17th volume added another 533,000 units, bringing it to just over 1.3 million. Part of the perception is just the way the releases hit and how fast it achieves its numbers, which are hard to compare volume to volume as it’s not identical in time frame. That said, with a the anime features, live action features and the upcoming second season and a chibi series all in alignment over the next year, well, we don’t expect there to be any significant drops.

New arrivals on the chart rank well with Seven Deadly Sins racking up some solid sales as well as Dungeon Meshi with its second installment coming in at third place with 225,000 units. That’s a series to start paying attention to. Other new arrivals brings us some good ranking for Chihayafuru and Hanada-kun but it’s also great to see Haikyuu!! suddenly getting a massive boost with another 138,000 units after being out for a bit.

On the light novel side, just the fact that the second week for Sword Art Online sixteenth volume did more business than its first week is pretty good – though of course it wasn’t a solid first week due to when it arrived. Within the first two weeks of being on the chart it’s now sold an impressive 175,000 units.
