Manga Top 250 Volumes and Top 100 Series for November 2008
- By Matt Blind

If you post something often enough, and on a regular schedule, you don't have to keep making excuses and explaining yourself. Of course, I'm not at the point where these monthly reports can be considered regular-and-timely. Yet. (all apologies to Shawn; we'll do better next year!) ...but I think I have done enough of these (in a row) (and quite recently) that we can skip past an intro to:

(commentary & full charts follow)

There is quite a bit of movement, but past a single new listing (361. ↑new (0) : Naruto Guardians of the Crescent Moon Kingdom - Viz Shonen Jump, Nov 2008 [272.2]) which isn't even manga, just an Ani-Manga adaptation of some Naruto... movie... thing... nothing here is enough to raise eyebrows.

Well, there are these:

374. ↑965 (1339) : Hunter x Hunter 23 - Viz Shonen Jump Advanced, Nov 2008 [251.4] ::
323. ↑981 (1304) : Naruto Legend of the Stone of Gelel - Viz Shonen Jump, Nov 2008 [312.6] ::

459. ↑1272 (1731) : Vassalord 2 - Tokyopop, Nov 2008 [184] ::
465. ↑1488 (1953) : Code Geass (novel) Stage Zero Entrance - Bandai, Sep 2008 [182] ::
499. ↑2054 (2553) : Her Majesty's Dog 11 - Go! Comi, Nov 2008 [156.6] ::

Some new releases (Oct./Nov. titles) are making big gains now that they are finally available to ship, but even though gains of a thousand ranks (or more) seems impressive, this is in fact just the usual bump a title gets as soon as it is physically available. There is a psychological curb that divides available for pre-order from ships in 24 hrs. -- even online shoppers respond to the illusion of instant gratification.

Nuts and Bolts:

The November Rankings presented below represent 3 weeks of data (Sun 2 Nov through Sun 16 Nov, omitting data from the last two weeks because I wasn't available to enter data -- yes, I stil do all of my own data entry, more than 5500 lisings a week; even minor obstacles are enough to throw me off my game and foul the data collection process) and 60 individual site checks.

In place of unit sales ("real" data, considered proprietary and a closely held secret of all publishers and retailers) these manga rankings use scores assigned to tiles based on how highly the volumes place on online sales sites' posted "bestseller" lists, or a search of their manga offerings sorted by popularity. The higher the placement, the higher the score, obviously.

The sites:

Online Bookstores:
Barnes & Noble
Books-a-Million
Borders
Chapters of Canada, and
Amazon's Manga Category Listing

Other Sales Charts:
Amazon's Hourly Bestsellers
Buy.com
Deepdiscount.com
Powell's
Tower, and
Virgin

Data from bookstores are weighted higher, as are the hourly bestsellers & manga category results from Amazon.

Math Note: In place of point totals in the thousands and thousands, series scores use a formula that sets the No. 1 (Naruto, currently) at 100 points, with everyone else scoring some fraction of that. (it's a straight scalar so all scores are still proportional)

Matt Blind is a bookseller: that's his day job, working as an asst. manager at a far-flung outpost of one of the big box chains. He is also a big fan of manga, has been a blogger of one stripe or another since aught-four, drinks too much, and remembers enough discrete math from his classes at Georgia Tech to construct the truly frightening spreadsheet that spits out these charts.

Matt maintains his own site at RocketBomber.com where he occasionally posts manga reviews, book retail & publishing news, and commentary on fandom in general -- but mostly wastes his time (and yours) with posts on the ever-changing variations and derivatives of these manga charts.

Readers with questions, comments or corrections should email Matt at, not surprisingly, matt[at]rocketbomber[dot]com.
