I'd just like to point out:

Even though the most recent NYT manga bestsellers seem brand new because they posted 3 days ago, in fact their charts as posted are the same vintage as mine, posted yesterday.

Don’t confuse ‘newly posted’ with ‘new’.

Oh, and I’m still waiting for the Times to both name their sources and explain their methods. If you click on those two links you’ll see my posts spelling out my methodology used to develop the charts… but the Times still reports “bestsellers” as Fact when in fact they themselves report the system can be gamed.

Just sayin’.

enjoy your NYT charts.

In my head, I sound like Yahtzee (quite a feat, given my inherited U.S.-flat-midwestern-accent.)
