Meh, half the list is still Naruto, but FMA and Otomen on the list is win. :3 Hopefully the Naruto part of the list will die down, seeing as how it's lower on the list. :D

FMA FTW

Honestly, I need to get my hands on Volume 22 of Fruits Basket. It's pretty much the real emotional ending of the series. I'm pretty happy that it's been selling so well.

Negima won!

Good job.

Naruto will slowly fall out, but every new issue will win I hope you all know.

NY Times Best Seller really means nothing. It's all just a pay and get on the list type of deal.

That's right that I bought FMAs Volumes not a long time ago, maybe I helped it to come at the 2nd place... *Daydreaming*

No I'm just joking, this comment isn't serious... xD

I'm glad that FMA's higher than Naruto.

Wow? Negima 1st? That's sad... I'd rather read Naruto than reading a book that keeps showing girls underwear... Must be a lot of people that has no girl... Other than that glad to see Fma and not to see Bleach (I hate it!) does bleach ever even come up to this list? Also, aren't people embarrassed to buy and read negima anyways? Reading it in the bathroom huh lol
