Please excuse the grammar nazi side of me, but this has always bugged me:

"Here is the weekly manga sales ranking"

Shouldn't it be "Here are the weekly manga sales rankings"?

I guess both are correct.
ranking –noun
4. an act or instance of indicating relative standing.
5. a list showing such standing.

rankings
A listing of items in a group, such as schools or sports teams, according to a system of rating or a record of performance.

you know, its nice to see arakawa under the bridge up there, but would any of us have known about this manga if it hadnt been animated? i highly doubt it and that somewhat irritates me. dont ask why, it just does.

Because I like Arakawa anime, and that's the original version of it. So, there is nothing wrong with getting amused from seeing it in the list, as I just recognised its value true.

hurr durr simple logics

Speaking for myself, i already knew the other work of Hikaru Nakamura, Saint Young Men and then found about this one before the anime

and one of the objectives of animating a manga is to increase the sales of it, so if more people know about it and the sales really increase the work is done :)
