Now I have to call my local library to make sure they order that Zelda manga! For being in Viz's kids-manga line, it's surprisingly good! Then again, manga based on video games or manga that would translate well to video games are my favorite type!

Naruto just refuses to fall of the list. When was the last time the Top 10 DIDN'T have a Naruto volume?

It sure is! Hopefully the success of this series leads to publishers picking up more josei.

Yay for Tegami Bachi! -needs to pick up the new volume-
I'm still angry with how it getting released (two volumes a year), but still I love this series way too much to not support it.

The next volume is going to be released the beginning of October too. Guess we'll have to see if vol 48 can last the rest of September.

All of this, I know there's only 10 or so volumes out in Japan right now but I would love to get more than two volumes a year out here, makes it so hard to recommend to friends.

I totally concur on Butterflies, Flowers. I love this series. Soooo happy to see it on the top 10 list! It was a bit of gamble to publish an office worker romance, even for the Shojo Beat imprint.

HECK YEEAH! MAXIMUM RIDE FOR THE WIIIIIN! My favorite book series of all time...and the manga is just as amazing...It totally deserves that spot! (Yes, I totally created this account just so I could post this~) Man, I've gotta get my hands on a copy of the third volume...I just can't believe it's in second place! Sugoi!!! Anime hyperAnime hyperAnime hyper Of course Bleach had to beat it out, though...sigh...But whatever, that's to be expected~

...That is all...Fly on, people! (AND MR. PATTERSON, PUBLISH ANOTHER BOOK! YOU CALL THAT AN ENDING? COME ON! WE ALL KNOW THAT CAN'T HAPPEN!...can it?...*sob* NOES!)

That's actually a huge deterrent for me from picking it up. I like the sound of it, but at two volumes a year, I don't feel any rush to go pick up the newest volume.
