Largest First Printings for Manga by the “Big Three” for 2009

From a copypaste floating around 2ch (post 45). No source listed, but I bet that if you did what a lot of data posters do and went to the diet library and looked at an expensive book like the 2010 Publishing Index by the Research Institute for Publications that you’d find very similar numbers!
