The Bestsellers List: Top music, movies, and manga for April 4

0

Attack on Titan and Frozen to dominate charts forever

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.

With all of Kodansha's Attack on Titan side titles out right now, the selling frenzy is in full force. With AoT getting prime shelf space -- oftentimes in bookstore displays -- it makes it all the easier to sell out of Eren and Mikasa's story. March Story and UQ Holder debut on the top ten this week, but they're fighting for survival.

On the film side, Frozen continues to dominate in the way that only Disney can. The film is racking up big money at the Japanese box office, and will easily surpass The Eternal Zero's box office total in the next week or two. Tagging along with the Disney juggernaut are films like Doraemon and Precure, sopping up all the other kids who want to go to the movies as well.

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