Eh, what place wa sit on the top 100? 96? 83? hehe

Really this is awesome, even with the obvious translation errors (new ones [mean three person!) Oo and the running gag one - one this one that instead of ga doraimasu [spelling?]) also the kenkshin typo x_x waaii

saw a typo in book 1 or 2 as well, forgot what it was hmm, so sad that you miss typos like that

Huh? The article says it was #1 on BookScan's top selling graphic novels and in the top 100 on BookScan's adult fiction list.

Yeah, I guess it shows what I know because I don't notice typos like that Anime smile. There were some discrepancies with the spelling of Ruroni/Rurouni, though...I think from the first one, but they fixed them in vol. 2.

Kenshin is a great series! I'm glad it's getting such positive recognition! It's so hard to wait until...what? April/May for vol. 4. Anime cry

Hey thats great!!! I just got Volume #3 Tuesday and I am reading it now. Just goes to show that Magna is getting some respect from the mainstream. To bad we have to wait 2 months to get them but its worth it.

Yeah, I was wondering where it ranked in the top 100.

Look for the 'mean three person' one, that's messed up hehe. I'd also love to know what that was in japanese originally

According to USAToday, Kenshin ranked #135 but that list includes fiction and non-fiction together.

Sounds like a good number to me ^^ all I want from people today is to *quotes a song on the radio* 'express yourself'

Show your talent, express your views, spread the wealth of culture, influence, imagination, knowledge and eh frustration! yeah hehe

Yeah comeon guys. Give Kenshin some credit. It is quite an intersting, entertaining and somewhat philosophical piece of art.
You might think Immortal is superior - so I heard, it still deserves its rightsul place as one of the toop Samurai manga. Maybe its popularity is a turnoff for some people here. Just like the hype with Eva, it also averted many anime 'savvy' fans. It's always like that.
