Re: Top 10 Manga in 2011 by Series

For comparison here's the top 10 best sellers for 2010.

Not that really surprising that One Piece is dominating the sales since it did so last year, but HOLY SHIT at the lead it has over everyone else. It's sale actually went up more than 5 million over last year. Jesus Fuck.

Also interesting is the sales for Naruto which dropped half a million, and Bleach which nosedived by over million less. Clearly these 2 series are on the way out, when the crazy fucking Japanese start giving up on it. This clearly shows that some of us here, were wayyyyy ahead of the curve on this one.......rage fanboys rage.


Predictions: Mangas to look out for are Hunter X Hunter and Beelzebub, which I predict will both break into the top 10 next year. The big loser next year, aside from Naruto and Bleach (which will always have a dedicated fanboy base) is Gantz, which after 100+ chapters of mindless dribble, shouldn't be anywhere near as popular as it now. There doesn't seem to be any change in story line coming in the near future, so I look for it to drop from the Top 10.

Re: Top 10 Manga in 2011 by Series

I'm really happy for One Piece, the only thing i hope is that the popularity of OP won't drop the sales of other manga too much but based on the rankings that's still not the case.
The other manga in the top 10 are still doing decent.

Edit: FT in 4th ? Japan, you disappoint me lol

Re: Top 10 Manga in 2011 by Series

Fairy Tail is lucky be 4th placed. It's a pretty overrated manga. As far as I'm concerned Toriko should be ahead of it, and Naruto too for that matter.

Re: Top 10 Manga in 2011 by Series

No talk on how Ao No Exorcist(Blue Exorcist) actually made it into the top 3 as a MONTHLY RELEASE? Based on that it's actually more popular than even Naruto in Japan. According to this the top 2 most popular manga in Japan are One Piece & Blue Exorcist. There isn't to much of a difference in sales when comparing everything else.

PS: Toriko is "OK" but shouldn't be on that list.

Bleach, I think people keep up on simply for battles, specifically Ichigo and his changes, Kenpachi, and fans have sat on the edge of they're seats since forever to hear 60% of the Capts. simply say one word we've never heard from them... Bankai. Aizen wasn't the best villan, but once he was indisposed, it actually showed, and exposed how little development most characters had since the beginning of the manga, while the Subtitute had surpassed everybody, and didn't know, or acknowledge it.

Re: Top 10 Manga in 2011 by Series

I laugh at the Narutards in the source site bitching at the fact OP is factoring almost as much as the other top 10 combined by saying Naruto deserved it better. They can't possibly be reading the same OP and Naruto I am reading.

Re: Top 10 Manga in 2011 by Series

AnE is quite great. I love pretty much everything about it. It's a balanced, enjoyable manga that likes to stick to its in-universe rules (unlike a certain manga featuring a ninja in an orange jumpsuit), but isn't afraid to throw surprises our way. It definitely earned it's spot in the top 3. I also would venture to say that Naruto has begun to deserve its popularity again. And of course, OP is OP. incredible. Still the sales were shocking, in my opinion! Those are some high sales compared to all the others!

Re: Top 10 Manga in 2011 by Series

It's been a while since I've kept up with Gantz but what's going on with the story where Bakuman has taken the lead over it? I'm a big Bakuman fan as the next but we are talking about Gantz here.

And HOLY FUCK BALLS on the OP sales. Though it doesn't surprise me at how well OP is doing. Oda knows what works and doesn't fuck with the formula for success. Yeah not every arc is ZOMGEPICSAUCE but it has a pretty consistent flow. It's a matter on know how to use your characters properly in your story and not cater to one because he's your favorite. Kishi/Kubo take notes and come out with a better manga next time.

Gantz has gotten pretty bad. Almost as bad as Bleach. Only thing still good about it, is the artwork.

Gantz spoilers
The last 50 chapters has been nothing but Kei Kurono and a bunch of other former Gantz players (The game itself came to an end, yet they still kept all the suits and gear) running around an alien ship under the assumption that they're trying to save innocent people. What most don't know is that Kei convinced these guys to go on this suicide mission with him, because he's really looking for his girlfriend, and needed the help.

For the most part his girlfriend (Tae) has been playing the damsel in distress. Imagine Inoue from Bleach with her KUROSAKI-KUN, KUROSAKI-KUN, KUROSAKI-KUN, KUROSAKI-KUN, yet somehow much MUCH more annoying.

Re: Top 10 Manga in 2011 by Series

Yeah yeah One Piece is great. Blah blah blah nothing new to discuss.

Anyone actually read Blue Exorcist? First I've really heard of it.

I've given up on Gantz and considering I still spend time drifting through Bleach and Naruto chapters, that says a lot. It was always a little weird but at least it had a "what the fuck is going on" angle. Now that we know what the fuck is going on... it just isn't as fun nor interesting. Also, lead dude was banging big titted women and now he's off trying to save a loli. Can't really find interest in that.

Soul Eater is a pretty good read.

Gonna go give Blue Exorcist a whirl. Only series I read with exorcists in them is D.Gray-Man, which kicks ass, but its only a monthly series and sometimes they are late so I need something else to fill that slot. Probably gonna start reading the Soul Eater manga as well.

26 chapters into that one. Enjoying it. Good enough sense of humour without resorting to the blatant over expression. Probably because it has a female lead.

Also looking to start Hunter X Hunter, D.Gray Man and Freezing (mainly because there's only a few chapters in that one) and probably should go back to Claymore since I sat down and read volume 1 and then never continued. Oh, and Blame. If I don't finish Blame, LN is going to be cross.

Once I begin all this I'll probably make a few new posts in the Manga Expansion thread.

Re: Top 10 Manga in 2011 by Series

I wonder how Berserk would do if it was more consistent in bringing out ch. ?
If it was weekly, it would obviously be more popular but doing a ch. of Berserk in a week seems insane well if the art stays at the same level. But the public that Berserk attracts is not as wide as OP, well actually lately in the manga of Berserk it's pretty mainstream but we know this can change quick.
