Oh D.Gray-Man, how I started to dislike you because you confuse the hell out of me and force me to read over 200 chapters again.

Hm, people really seem to like Ao no Exorcist, I think it's solid, the mangaka should better work on her pacing.

Good to see Magico, but am unsure of its future. Don't know if those sales will save it from its trek through the bottom rankings of Jump. Perhaps unless it starts selling like Nura which tends to also dwell in the bottom 5 and has for a long time, yet it's safe to say it won't get canned. But I'm doubting Magico will rise to those levels.

AWESOME!!!
during the past weeks (well, when HxH was not hiatus) the rankings for HxH was REALLY low, and the story was really good, so i was getting pissed.
But seeing those sales shows that HxH is still doing strong!!!
great to Blue exorcist selling fine, gintama is doing decent to.
Hoping that Gintama starts to sell manga again in the west

Good to see HxH at top of the list. I hope this will bring Togashi-sensei some happiness and spirit to continue the Manga over hiatus now -_-"

I just realized something. Some of those Light Novels on the Charts look like shoujo....

Why aren't they animated? I mean, shonen LNs get animated all the time!

Or is it cuz they don't sell well as animes?

I'm suprised the 'big 3' aren't on there to be honest?

I'm glad my fav; HxH, A.K.A. Hunter x Hunter A.K.A. Hiatus x Hiatus is on top - the author is very lucky that his work is of such quality that it remains a top seller dispite irregular releases - I'd hope for this if I were writing.

Wow, I didn't know there were still that many fans of HxH. It shouldn't surprise me because Bleach still has that many fans, but even so.
