Personally, I am VERY glad that Naruto is not in the top 10 (although I don't know how long that has been going on for).

I guess everyone realised they were plagiarising their ideas from Hunter x Hunter. The blatant filler didn't help much, either.

I don't mind with Naruto. They plagiarize themselves left and right anyway.

I don' t particularly like Highschool of the Dead though. I keep reading it, but it's one of the trashiest reads. It makes Naruto look classy in comparison.

It's nice to see Fist of the Blue Sky on that list, and in 6th place at that.

Nodame Cantabile #20, final Aria volume rise to top;

Even though I knew it was coming, those three words are probably the most depressing thing I have read this month. Crying or Very sadAnime cry

Wow, One Piece, Hunter x Hunter, AND D-Gray Man have been able to stay. Let's hear it for the shonen titles, they keep their own with the other titles on there.

Uuuuhhh, Naruto didn't even release a volume for this week dude. That's why it's not on there....... Plus as Westlo already said, the latest one they did release was #1 for 2 weeks in a row. Yeah. I don't think it's popularity is going anywhere. Wink

Shueisha volumes release on a rotating schedule. Naruto, Bleach, and Gintama were released at the beginning of February; OP and HxH were released at the beginning of this month.

I see. Anyway, is this Top 10 list judged by sales?

I would think they go by units since prices in manga are different, but I can't confirm that as a fact. Perhaps one of the staff would know?

I assuma that's exactly what HyugaHinata meant. In that context, sales = number of units sold.
