I don't understand Vampire Knight at all. Three different volumes on the list, none of them released at the same time (and the first volume was released over three years ago). Naruto only managed to have three volumes because of that Naruto Nation campaign.

Man... I really hate this vampire thing... when will it end! Especially since Volume number 1 went up on the list! A three year old book! Is that even possible?

lol is there some sort of competition I'm not aware of here? Surprised

Though, the Twilight graphic novel comes out in March, if that counts as anything.

Vampire Knight 9 is hitting the bookstores this week. I expect it'll show up on next week's list too. I wonder if it'll simply add to the ones already there or replace one of them?

Once Volume 9 is released, 4/10 of the list could possibly be occupied by Vampire Knight. Not to mention the new Naruto volume coming out soon.

Viz sure is putting its eggs in all the right baskets at the moment.

How is Viz putting all it eggs in one basket;One Piece is on an excellerated schedule and they have numerous titles that appear on the list when released.They probably will eventually speed up Bleach which should do as well for them as Naruto did.

As for Vampire Knight vol.1 appearing on the list ,at the book store I frequent quite a few teenage girls ask the staff if they have volume 1.Even my sister who hates manga has borrowed my books. It maybe Twilight Message boards are giving the series some word of mouth.

I'm happy to see FMA at #1, though its disconcerting that just one One Piece volume is on the list this week, and its at the very bottom.

I wonder how the chart's going to look like next week. There's going to be like a huge influx of manga coming in on Feb, 2. Hell, I even have 13 volumes I want coming out that day. Especially Ultimo. I really want to read that one.

One Piece is only hugely popular online, and the previous week was the first time it ever got past number 7 on the list.

FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST IS NUMBER 1! I got it last Sunday and this volume is just completely awesome with the Coup by our heroes starting.

The irony of this is that those same people praising it online aren't buying it, atleast FMA fans are loyal to there word though

I'm just glad that my favorite series are on there; Vampire Knight, FMA, Naruto, Death Note, and One Piece. Though they are mainstream, they're pretty damn awesome.

Vampire Knight gets really amazing around vol6+.
And vol. 9, which is the end of this story arc, should be coming out next week (earlier than expected too).
I'll bet some people who've been following the scanlated chapters have suddenly decided they need to own the entire set Very Happy

EDIT: Woudn't be surprised if VIZ decides to put out a VK box set for the complete story arc.
