Monster Musume cracked the Top 10, huh? I've noticed a bit of a media push. Is it any good?

Not bad, extreme ecchi with animal-human hybrids.

Looks like Watamote dropped a bit from its previous week's ranking.

Obviously, Naruto is selling very well over there.

Well yeah since it's about to end. Which sucks but everything comes to an end. Hopefully it'll be EPIC.

When it ends it will probably feels like my "childhood" is nothing more than a memory ): I just can't help but to feel that Naruto still has a lot of unused potential. I am hoping for an epilogue as a closure.

IIRC, volume 1 only ranked once in the top 10, so it seems volume 2 is already doing better.

Personally, I'm happy that it's doing so well here. Hopefully, the anime will show similar results once it gets released here.

Except there is a problem, well, a few problems I think.

1. there ARE many manga series, in fact, if you go into the store. But possibly due to the structure of the US comic series, US fans are more used to long running series being their favorites. Hell, even after ending for such a long time, Star wars and Star Trek both have a loyal fanbase.

2. Not as many people are interested in manga. Manga as far as I see, is pretty mainstream in JP, with serious series such as Uchuu Kyoudai being best selling... Manga here appeals to a special crowd...

3. less significantly, the manga costs twice of what it does in JP...

Yeah, Naruto is part of my childhood days too that's why I love it.
A Naruto prequel, sequel or spin-off would be really awesome.

Yea, Uq holder is pretty good. Seven deadly sins... meh, It feels like I'm reading fairy tale. Another average manga. I really don't understand why it's getting so popular. I may watch the anime adaption whenever that comes.
