Well I was wondering when Pokemon Black and White 6 would make the list, instead of 5 being on for weeks and weeks! *makes obligatory comment about hoping BW, and even Platinum, sells well enough for Viz to release the skipped series*.

It's great to see A Bride's Story place on this list. Even if it isn't very high, and for some reason we don't know what volume it was, I'm happy to see it place. It's a really good series that deserves to be read.

Woahwoahwoahwoahwoah.

Bunny Drop made the list?
A Bride's Story made the list?
Bamboo Blade sells well?

Three surprises on one list! I thought Bride Story's price tag would turn off a chunk of the readers. I figured Bamboo Blade was scraping by. And Bunny Drop? Always figured that one was too niche, though perhaps the anime (...or controversy) boosted sales.

In any case, good for Yen Press! I can't wait to hear their licensing announcements tomorrow.

I am not surprised that Zombie Descarr made the list.

But Spice and Wolf hitting the top is surprising.

Well, they really need to do it! I think Viz only released the first three story arcs (RBG, Yellow, GHC) in the first fourteen volumes, then Pearl and Diamond on separate entry (skipping RubySapphire, FRedLgreen and Emerald!!). And when is Japan even going to release the final Platinum volume?

Indeed. Every little thing ups the odds for a third season (I tell myself).

Library sales may have made the difference. Didn't the series receive an Eisner nomination? That's a good reason for libraries to stock up.
