Your still self-inflicting head trama? It's been 11 weeks. Get over it. Kickass Graphic Novel put up a good fight for 1 week thanks to the movie but fangirls are a force to reckon with. But it shows that the method works.

But man, Negima surprised me. My Borders actually sold out the week it came out. Never happened to me before so close to the release date. Maybe if I took too long like a few weeks but not within the first week.

You obviously didn't clue in that all of that money is going to a manga publisher.

I don't like Twilight either, but I'm ecstatic to see how well it's doing. I've invested in a lot of Yen series now, so it's nice to know that they won't be going defunct anytime soon (unlike Tokyopop or Del Rey, which could go poof at any time).

So I'm just going to guess vol 26 of Negima lacks the LE cover and what not and all that extra stuff from the Japanese release.

But Negima! seems to sell well here every release week. Plus volume 26 is when things really do pick up in the MW arc.

I could care less if Yen Press decide to sell a Twilight GN to make a quick buck. As long as the push out Higurashi volumes at the rate that they have been doing then I'll be fine.

Black Butler hasn't had a vampire yet that I'm aware of.
Blackbird hasn't had a vampire that I've read so far.
Kobato has no vampire.
There hasn't been a vamp in Pandora Hearts yet.

Yeah, Black Butler!!!! Keep going!

Wow, Yen Press. I really love the series they release, and will continue to support them, but it hurts my wallet to spend $11-$13 per manga.

Though I can see why they cost a little more, considering there are almost always some full color pages inserted at the beginning of each book.

Guess that anime adaptation did Dance in the Vampire Bund well. I think this is a first for Seven Seas, too. Good for them, since I haven't seen much activity out of them lately.

26...That's Nagi and Arika on the cover? *checks Wikipedia* Okay, end of Rakan's flashback, Asuna turning out to have been captured, beginning of Negi vs. Rakan (woo!), and...oh, boy. The Chichigami.
