Seeing Monster Musume top the list again and again gives me high hopes for an adaptation. Even though US lists don't mean diddly squat to Japan.

It baffles me that the first volume of attack on titan is still selling. Who the hell is still buying it?

Always have to have a look to see if AoT 1 is still there. Check. But, always nice to see manga I'm collecting on this list. Fairy Tail and Noragami are the ones this time around.

I'm actually surprised that Monster Musume is doing well. I read it religiously when I can get my hands on a copy.

Monster Musume followed by Fairy Tail. Yep, NY Times readers like their skin-showing mangas.

I'm still hoping Monster Musume's strong success will convince someone to license the To Love Ru manga.

I wasn't sure if Clamp still had a strong following after all of these years. For some reason I thought Xxxholic was getting to be a bit of a flop toward the final volumes in the States. Looks like I was wrong.

I will be surprised when we see a listing of this where AoT vol. 1 isn't on this list.

I don't understand why SAO is selling so well, I picked up the first volume and I didn't think it was that good. I didn't watch the anime because its not really my cup of tea, but yikes I thought the manga was just terrible. It seemed to jump from topic to topic at ridiculous rates. I think it would have been better to add more and elaborate on the different parts of it.

Then again I didn't watch the anime past episode 3, so I can't really compare one to the other.

*HintHint* Just read the light novels if you want to comment on that. While the anime is not that bad, it's not that good either. The manga on the other hand, as long as you're not talking about the Progressive manga, is something that most fans try to avoid even thinking about, it was that bad.

Isn't the SAO listed here the novel, not the manga?
