Monster Musume has been on the list since it was released, and held the #1 spot for two weeks in a row if I'm not mistaken.

Why? Boobs.

Yotsuba's still being published in English? I remember trying to look for it some years ago but I gave up after ADV stopped and just began buying it in French.

Yen Press bought the rights several years ago after ADV went under, along with the rights to Azuma's previous series Azumanga Daioh, which they put out in an omnibus edition. They also reprinted the original five volumes that ADV put out with slightly different translations on some of the dialogue.

Yen Press picked it up and re-translated the series from the very beginning, which is a great thing, because the series is great

I knew there had to be some logical reason why the neighboring cities Barnes and Noble didn't have the new "Yotsuba&!" It's because its the number one seller! As a long time fan, (A fan since Yotsuba's ADV days) I'm always very happy when I see it on the top of the list. I'm so glad it's getting the attention it deserves because it's just an amazing manga. And even in the ADV days I knew it was special and someday it would be HUGE. Five years later, it's a regular on the NYC best sellers list. Very Happy
