Everytime I see this section, all I can ever look at is the prices. Then I look at what we get charged for manga.....followed by a crying jag and a sudden return to studying japanese. Thank god for furigana.

It's weird to see that the English release is so close to the Japanese one for xxxHolic (the release of 12 here was almost the same time as the release of 13 there). Sadly, this means we have a nice long wait before getting 13 over here (Chapters.ca has the release listed for March 2009 Sad)

It's interesting to see B.O.D.Y. up there, that was a series that interested me in it's Shojo Beat preview. I say this WAY too much, but there's another series I'll need to check out.

Looking at DVD prices might make you feel better again.

Yay, HanaDan and Soul Eater Very Happy

I'm a little surprised HanaDan didn't hit #1 though.

Seeing what's popular in Japan comic wise is always a pleasure, being as the huge titles over here don't even break the top ten.

yeah its a very long wait. at least we are getting 2-3 tsubasa books in that time period. i think del-ray should have released TRC #18 before holic #12. spoiler[ we now know that something is going to happend with sakura. and watanuki is "related to syaoran" kindof spoils TRC's next arc]

Wow, I think this is the first time in a long while that there are no Weekly Shonen Jump titles in the top 10

Well that's one I wouldn't have expected, but it's probably not the first time it's happened. xxxHolic is in there, but I'd like to see how the next Tsubasa volume will do since these two run parallel in storylines.
