So, Shonen Jump titles appear to be having a good week, since that's what they are. I'm not surprised that One Piece has taken the top spot for the time being at all, either.

All I can see is "Steel Ball Run 21" and it makes me cry in jealousy and wish I didn't suck at Japanese, and I'm already this close to breaking down and buying raws I can't really read at Kinokuniya. (I'm only a retarded fangirl for Hirohiko Araki.)

Shonen Jump titles tend to be released the first full week of the month, and it just so happens that last week was exactly that. Can't say I'm exactly surprised at which ones took the top spots, either.

Even though I personally believe that Naruto is very well deserving of it's popularity over here, and probably would be just as popular anyways, I'd definitely love to see One Piece right up there with it. I think it and Hunter X Hunter would both be right up there with it, and deservingly so if handled better over here. C'mon, Naruto needs some good competition, it's getting kinda boreing up here!

I wish it could too, but we all know the problem with that is how it was originally marketed in the first place, which was a total disaster, even with the manga being released in English.
