Wow, I'm becoming more and more impressed with all the shoujo manga selling in this list versus shonen, even if I don't like most of the titles.

I'm impressed to see Vampire Knight topping the list. I don't know that it's ever been #1 before.

And definitely nice to see more shojo titles up there. Some good came come from the Twilight-induced supernatural craze at the moment.

I'm surprised with Otomen and Black Bird.

I'm surprised to only see one volume of Naruto on the list.

If I remember right, Otomen has been on the list before. Black Bird's presence doesn't surprise me nearly as much as Bloody Kiss's does given how much I hear about people avoiding new Tokyopop series.

The cover up for Fullmetal Alchemist 19 is actually the cover of volume 18.

19's cover can be found here. > http://www.amazon.com/Fullmetal-Alchemist-Vol-Hiromu-Arakawa/dp/1421525682/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1250276120&sr=1-1

Woot! I actually bought Otomen, Black Bird, and Bloody Kiss Very Happy I liked Otomen, Black Bird had very good fanservice, but Bloody Kiss was meh

how come Shonen Jump manga is less than Shojo Beat manga? I feel like I've been jipped.

Vampire Knight is a very excellent title, and a refreshing change than seeing constant volumes of Naruto at #1 (no matter how much of a Narutard I am, I like seeing other manga take the spotlight). And there is nothing wrong with shoujo; in fact, a lot of the best anime and manga out there are shoujo.

I've read the little bit of Black Bird when it was previewed in Shojo Beat a couple months back, and I'm very much considering purchasing the series. It seems like a very interesting title.

I'll second what Aura said, I love Naruto, but some shojo are great too and I'm glad to see them on there.

Now we just need to get some series like One Piece, Gintama, Gantz, some Urasawa series, etc. on some of these lists. Smile

Wait until Viz starts publishing the multiple One Piece volumes a month; we're sure to see a few of the volumes on the lists somewhere or another. Anime hyper
