Congratulations to Vertical for Black Jack's success. Definitely deserves to be a bestseller. Only one volume left to go Smile

Urasawa last week, Tezuka this week. Glad that people are finally buying into more mature titles.

Given it;s an omnibus I'm surprised Tenjo Tenge is up so high. I knew it was selling well but wow. Really need to scrounge up some cash and by the next volume myself.

Methinks it's either that people didn't like the first version/publisher and held off, or that people didn't know about the title before/it was already OOP and now know about it and are interested.

Seriously, Kingyo Used Books? I thought I was the only one buying that. I'm glad that it appears to be selling. Maybe Viz will take some chances on their licensing and get more non-mainstream series like this.

This week's best sellers are all odd titles..titles that usually never sell well enough to make the list..at least Blue Exorcist is number ten on the list.

Seeing as how TT is being given the Viz sig treatment, it's not a surprise.

1. Uncensored!
2. Two volume omnibus
3. Bigger, cleaner pages
4. It's Viz, not CMX :/
5. BOOBIES!!

I'm glad to see it doing well, I'm loving it so far!

One of the more pleasant lists to take a gander at this week.

I don't think any of us expected to see Afterschool Charisma, Kingyo Used Books and even Black Jack on the list.

Or the original two volume Kinkyo series, for that matter.

ding ding ding you win 10 internets. Im buying ten ten and the holding off reason is exactly why. I wanted to get it but CMX put me off it, now its in better hands I've been snapping it up.

So glad to see the uncut release of Tenjo Tenge doing well. The two in one format is a great idea as well.

Got a few books I wanted to buy on the list and went down to Barnes to buy them on Saturday, but unfortunately the manga cows got to them first and trashed them. Oh well, I will need to order them online.

Not only Sailor Moon but Sailor V didn't expect to see that. If Tenjho Tenge continues there's a chance for the anime to continue as well keep fingers cross and the fact Black Jack is alive and doing well would like to see a re-release of that as well. Feels like Xmas is coming early this year for me.
