Gundam: The Origin supplants Attack on Titan

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:
