HOLY SHIT, NO BLUE EXORCIST OR BLACK BUTLER. That's a first.
Instead, 2 Seven Seas manga!
It's great to see Vampire Bund selling so well. And I didn't think the Toradora! manga was doing that well, hehe.
I love Seven Seas' releases, I hope they keep up the good work!

Yeah, same here. Surprised as all get-out, a little sad for the absence of Railgun but I'm hoping it'll sow up next week (Gotta check out the translation before I buy it, but from what I've heard it's solid).

Also: GO DENGEKI DAISY!! I love, love, love this series! Motomi's manga are some of the best shoujo I've read in years.

I'm really sick of the attention Black Bird is getting, though I've long suspected it's numbers are the way they are thanks to the same demographic as a certain sparkling vampire franchise, so I guess abusive, utterly unhealthy relationships are a new par for the course? Yeesh. Rolling Eyes

A lot of manga are chauvinistic. Hasn't stopped them. Laughing

A Certain Scientific Railgun Vol. 1 is doing very well for us. However, it's been out for a few weeks now, so it probably won't show up on the list this far in. Maybe book 2, though.

Black Bird beat Skip Beat?! Mad

That said, while I find Skip Beat still entertaining, I can't believe it's going on still. It's gone on more than her Tokyo Crazy Paradise manga, and that finished long. I wonder if it's going toward the Boys over Flowers number. D: I wonder if how long Skip Beat has gone on has affected its sales a bit. I need a little break from buying a Skip Beat volume every 3 months...
