The Bestsellers List: Top music, movies, and manga for April 11 photo
The Bestsellers List: Top music, movies, and manga for April 11
by Brad Rice

Welcome to The Bestsellers List, where we highlight the bestselling music and movies in Japan, along with the best of the American manga sales each week.

This week, Mobile Suit Gundam proves just how dominant of a force it can be, supplanting the perennial favorite Attack on Titan. It's taken people a while, but they're finally realizing just how great of a series Gundam: The Origin is. If you've never gotten into the Gundam franchise, this is the perfect way to get in. Plus, Vertical's gorgeous volumes make it a must-have.

On the film side, an interesting flick caught my eye: The Snow White Murder Case. Take a look at the trailer and see for yourself. It's about a murder at a cosmetics company, and a TV show starts investigating one the victim's co-workers to see if she was the wicked person to kill the poor office lady. I'd love to see how it turns out. 

Let's take a look at the top titles from each list:

Oricon's Top Three Songs

1. Kidsuitara Kataomoi by Nogizaka46
2. No Mercy by BAP
3. High Five by Yuma Nakayama

New York Times' Top Three Manga

1. Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin Vol. 5
2. Soul Eater Vol. 19
3. Attack on Titan Vol. 1

Japan's Top Three Box Office Films

1. Frozen
2. Doraemon: Shin Nobita no Daimakyo
3. Heisei Rider vs. Showa Rider

Check out the full lists after the jump!

Happy Monday, folks! It's time to get focused on fighting off the banality of the week with Shonen Showdown, the weekly recap that's using the title bar to conveniently censor the werewolf above! Don't look! It's a....compromising position.

Where we don't compromise, however, is on the hottest new chapters of Naruto, Bleach, and Hunter x Hunter, with a side order of PreCure to boot! Get on below to get all that into your system!
