In Germany the bigger publishers usually publish their list of releases for each month and not on a weekly basis like some American publisher’s do. Also every publisher in Germany has a fixed time when they release all their manga:

Carlsen usually releases in the first week of the month, sometimes even earlier. Tokyopop’s releases follow them a bit later and Heyne in shares a spot with Egmont in the middle of the month. Lately it felt like Egmont published their books a bit later as well. The end of the month is reserved for Panini to put their books on the shelves.

I’m not sure if that has an impact on the sales figures, but as the average German manga buyer is 14 and female, they might get their pocket-money at the start of each month and tend to spend it all on the earlier released manga, just a thought though.

So here’s Tokyopop’s release list for October:
