Ao no Exorcist Manga and Novel are No. 1

The animated series Ao no Exorcist that are currently airing on TBS, streamed by Aniplex, are definitely giving a great boost to the entire franchise since both the 7th volume of the manga and the entirely new novel are on the first position in Oricon’s book and comic charts for the past week, which was their first one on the market.

The first novel of the franchise is entitled Ao no Exorcist: Weekend Hero and is illustrated by the original mangaka Katou Kazue and written by Aya Yajima. It sold 62, 000 copies in its first week. On the other hand, the seventh volume of the series were the first ever manga published by Jump Square to reach the one million copies milestone.

    1. well… I suppose there will be changes in the next season, since the manga has quite a different view on things. They may even make a retelling of the story to give the fans a more manga-ish telling. We’ll see.

      1. Not sure I want to… :( Will start reading to prepare myself, though. Since Shinigami-sama predicts so. ;)
