Popular Anime of 2012 - Manga Sales Figure

Back when I first started my journey as an Anime fans, I have always wondered what are the good / entertaining / popular anime series out there? And how do I go about getting these info?

After countless hours Googling here and there, the conclusion is what some fans considered good or great, some other fans might even hated it. At the end of the day, It boils down to your very own personal preference.

So I have decided to check out the herd mentality - follow the crowds. Then decide if that particular anime series interest me. And what better way to do that than to follow the sales figure? I mean, if these people like the series bad enough to part with their hard earned money, there got to be something good about it, right?

So here it is, the list of popular anime series of 2012 based on Manga sales figure. I will link each series to it's Wikipedia details since i'm bad at writing lengthy review or information background on anime series  ^-^

( except for One Piece since I have already made a post on it's introduction )
