Hmm, I would have thought Hellsing was much anticipated, I guess 4th place isn't so bad. Everybody's been waiting forever for that last volume to come out so maybe it could move into the top three for this next week's rankings.

It's the last volume? If so I might have to get it...it's certainly been long enough... I personally am looking forward to Ahiru no Sora #2 though Smile.

Yes, Hirano had hinted that he wanted to end the Hellsing manga and move onto something else, so it was either going to the tenth volume or if had extended it, then the eleventh volume. But he ended it last year, so it had to be ten. It has an exciting outcome too, so you wouldn't want to miss it.

I just know there is doujinshi of this manga out there somewhere.

Buddha/Jesus yaoi is something so wrong that I got to find it.

LOL, no it's not doujinshi (at least I've never seen any doujin of this). And it's not yaoi or even shounen-ai.
No violence, no blood, mostly they sit around and talk about things - with lots of visual gags & puns.
So much so it requires a few pages of "translators notes" tagged onto every chapter scanlated.
Jesus and Buddha are taking a holiday after a very hectic end of millennium (2000), so they go to Tokyo and rent a tiny apartment in order to experience "human" life and get in touch with their inner selves, so to speak. Sort of a reverse of humans going on a spiritual retreat. They get excited about convenience stores, tacky souvenirs and being able to enter Theme Parks for half price because they're senior citizens Laughing

There was a rumor that the translator's an industry pro doing this as a hobby.
I believe the genre is Seinen.
