I haven't even heard of Ao Haru Ride... anyway the list still has some well known titles One Piece,Gantz and Fairy Tail. Naruto seems to be dropping in sales.

I did not expect Ao Haru Ride to be so popular, nor do I think it deserves top spot but whatever.

Nice to see Zetsuen no Tempest and Shingeki no Kyojin up there.

Good to see Higurashi up there. I really need to read more volumes of those.

And nice to see Usotsuki Lily doing well. Such a funny shoujo series.

But what the heck is BUTTER!!!?

It's a seinen manga that centers around a high school girl who participates in a dance club (think more ballroom dancing). It's all about her characters--Yamashita Tomoko was wildly popular for two of her works last year: her shoujo manga "Don't Cry, Girl" and josei manga "Her." And no, no one has shown good enough taste to translate/license either.

Glad to see Shingeki no Kyojin outsell Bleach. They are like manga.

Great story and bad art (by general standards) of Shingeki no Kyojin versus bad story and great art of Bleach

For once plot > art

Plz tell me you were joking,bleach has good art?bleach art is shit and People overrate the fuck out of Kubo’s drawings.
Hearing bullshit like “Kubo has the best art in
WSJ” makes me laugh. Spewing black ink all over
a page like a god damn octopus does not count
as good art. Characters suffering from the only six faces trope does not help to cement it as “OMG TEH BEST EVAR!” either. Gigantic empty panels
with almost nothing happening in them and
mostly character reaction shots to events
highlights poor composition choice. It is highway
robbery that he draws so little in comparison to
the other mangaka he is serialized with yet still has people humping his average drawings
claiming his art is the best. Yeah, sorry but this
does not qualify as “amazing art” at all. It is just a
style that people have this ridiculous hard on for.
That is pretty much Bleach in a nut shell. All style
and no substance.

Don't worry, Bleach sells will rise again now that the childrens have what they want: Shinigamis.

And I'm glad for Shingeki no Kyoujin's sells.

Hmm. Didn't expect much of that to be on there. Good for Gantz.

I'm really happy that Fairy Tail's doing well. ^_^

I've never even heard of Ao Haru Ride. Either that just snuck up on there, or I am completely oblivious to everything.

Shingeki no Kyojin doesn't have bad art NOW. It's art is very good just a different style than most of the manga out there
