Not too surprised on the top five but I'm glad regardless as usual Madoka is selling very well.
Looking at posts on the Internet wouldn't bother me so much if people didn't also mix up he and she.

I see Madoka up among the top 5 and wonder when will it overtake the WSJ Big 3.

Maybe it already did. One Piece isn't there. /人◕ ‿‿ ◕人\

I wonder if the Yu-Gi-Oh Zexal manga has some duels, if so I want to read it. If not I'll stick to the anime, it's actually quite funny.

I think shounen manga will always be on top because it's nice easy read for all ages and genders actually :)

Bingo.

The reachable to all ages stuff is always going to be a higher seller then niche titles or adult material that are usually of better quality and style.

I wonder why Bleach is #2....
Really, it has been a long time science it was a good manga. Then again, I think it's just fans being loyal to the product.
