I watched Sailor Moon way back in the 90s (in Europe) and I'm now wondering why the manga seems to be so popular that it is in the charts, I mean it's quite old (as a franchise), can someone explain me the popularity in the US?

Because the first runs of the manga were printed left to right, the names changed, etc. And it's been out of print for years and years. As someone who also watched the dubbed TV show in the 90s, but couldn't get the manga (except online and horribly localized), this recent reprinting is doing a superb job of capturing the original tone of the manga series. And I plan on collecting all of them.

Is Toriko even licensed in America? And if it is it hasn't had a whole lot of time to get as many buyers, unlike Naruto and Bleach the anime hasn't been aired on American televison either.

This has got to be the most ignorant statement on Japanese manga taste I have ever heard. Do you not realize that manga originated in Japan, and that the Japanese have had just as long to be critical of their own manga? One Piece is the best selling manga series constantly, month by month, year by year for a VERY GOOD REASON. It is no fluke, believe me. The Japanese knows what makes an amazing series. I will always trust the taste of the Japanese when it comes to manga. They know what's up.

Hahhahahahahahah!!! Oh wow. I mean I like One Piece too, I think it's a good series, but you really think it deserves having so much greater success by far than every other series? And I guess that despite One Piece being in your favorites of anime and manga you're not biased at all right? But from what you've written it seems you'd be incapable of forming your own opinion on a series anyways and would just listen to what Japan thinks with a, "they can never be wrong" type of attitude. From what else you've said I guess you believe in quality by popular vote then too.

Like I said I think One Piece is good but still not deserving of such high sales numbers, especially with the latest volumes.

What the others above me said. It's being reprinted for the first time in years, in the original right to left format and with the characters' original names and proper translations and so on. It's basically bringing back an old out of print classic and treating it better this time.

More like "hey let's change this person's quote to paraphrase and emphasize what he/she didn't do right cuz it's so cool of me."

Also, read between the lines. "Out of print" should give you a hint.
