Sweet for seeing Ouran on the list. ^^ But I'm surprised with seeing Yu-Gi-Oh! GX; to be honest, I actually didn't think the manga was that popular even for being in SJ or for it just being Yu-Gi-Oh!.

I'm surprised GX did so well, too. The manga does make the anime look like a flaming cow pie, but still. People probably just bought Yu-Gi-Oh GX Vol. 3 for the promo card. Razz

WTF Negima! You were at Number 1 last week, right? What are you doing so low!? D:

Oh dear, a new volume of Ouran that I have to buy (and yes, I mean have to Anime hyper). It is very exciting to see it up there on the list, I didn't realize the manga was doing that well.

With Naruto era slowly coming to an end, it's damn nice to see more variety of titles. I only wish One Piece was higher.

I'm just glad it's even on the list lol. With Viz skipping ahead to the Sabaody/Supernovas arc on the fall for US Jump, I'm hoping the volumes get at least a bi-monthly release.

nice to see bleach at #1, have always preferred bleach over naruto. Love the variety here, naruto having 5-6 slots was getting old.

I figured Ouran High School Host Club volume 12 would at least make the list, but it's much higher than I thought, at #3. Yay for that.

I was kind of hoping Oh My Goddess volume 32 would also make the list, but I guess that's probably not a big title with younger readers anymore. Especially considering it's a Dark Horse title, and Viz dominates the list, with the occasional Del Rey title.

Woah, go GX! Anime smile

I'm pretty surprised to see that on there, actually. I didn't think it was so popular.
Plus the promo card for volume 3 sucks. o_o
