I'm pretty sure the ones in Bleach are translations of titles that where there in the Japanese version.

Bleach titles in Japan are in English--but VIZ changes them anyway to "more proper" English even though Kubotite's slangy English is almost always skillfully done.

Original titles (for example):
Bleach Volume 1: The Death and the Strawberry
Bleach Volume 2: Goodbye Parakeet, Goodnite My Sista

But Shonen Jump volume titles are usually just the name of one of the chapters in that volume. This gets boring sometimes, especially in Hunter X Hunter with all the September X chapters...(Togashi had to stop at September 10th for obvious reasons and start coming up with more creative chapter titles instead...poor man.)

So Naruto volume 9 made the top 150 after just appearing in stores? I bought a copy today since they often ship early, but it isn't supposed to come out until March 7.
