One of the volumes released by this series is bound to make the top 10 someday, whether it be Naruto or Fruits Basket. There just needs to be something to break them in.

I'm surprised to see Negima up there as well. I was thinking about starting on that series once I get a job.

I agree, it's just a matter of time.

I wouldn't be too surprised to see this volume in particular break the top 10 in the comming weeks personally. I think the reason why it's selling so well is because it's the big moment everyone's been waiting for: The unveiling of the new Naruto and the start of Naruto part 2!

Totally worth it, despite the massive rewrites in volume 1.

For those who read the Naruto manga, are the honorifics left in the adaptation? Just curious.

What exactly was so important that they had to rewrite?

I only have vol. 27, and they had no honorifics.
