Not surprising One Piece and Naruto are at the top 2.

How the hell did Soul Eater sell that much? It's monthly right?

Great to see 20th Century Boys sell that much. Just goes to show ya how awesome it is when it's right up there with the currently running shounen series despite having already finished.

Because nobody had ever paid attention to Soul Eater before Bones' adaptation of it. Because of that, nobody had any back issues, and everyone started buying from volume 1. When you have a popular manga that has 12 volumes on the market, and nobody has any of them, it adds up pretty quickly.


But man! One Piece cleaned house!
