First two series are vampire-centered and the next two are the Shounen Bombs. Why is this not surprising??

Agreed with the people above. The Twilight fanbase is still going strong...
Twilight is the worst. Vampire Knight is worse than the worst.

N-no One Piece?
Or any series that I read/like for that matter?

Not very newsworthy :/ All I see are bishounens, Shounen mainstreams, and vampires.

@ ramses90 & banas002:

I think you both misunderstood what I said. I'm not saying each title I mentioned has ALL of genres/categories, but merely one or two of them. I know what each of the shows are and I know how they differ. That being said, this is missing the point I was making.

No, because I remember these titles be on the top 10 list more than almost anything else.

Kay, but how often did you see all of the titles I was talking about on the top 10 list at the same time?

Dec 26, 2010 5:28 AM by Hypeathon

Vampire Knight, Rosario+Vampire, Dance in the Vampire Bund
wow, vampire dominating the list

I guess the term "coincidence" doesn't exist in anyone's mental dictionary since everyone here seems so convinced that because Vampire Knight, Rosario+Vampire, Ouran, Dance in the Vampire Bund, Skip Beat and Black Butler happened to all make the top 10 last week, there's a sudden push for girly, vampire, bi-shounen, fujoshi-bait stuff.

I mean certain other popular titles like Fullmetal Alchemist and One Piece aren't on the list because a new volume hasn't been released yet.

but rosario+vampire isnt for girl and isnt bi-shounen
is a shounen manga with pure action , few harem romance and isnt centred in vampires,has many different monsters like ghouls,trolls,orcs,zombies,lizardmans,sucubus,witch,Ice Woman,etc


and so was Dance in the Vampire Bund, it's a heavy dark seinen manga with full of violence and nudity, definitely not for girls

America, I am disappoint.

People say "vampire" and everyone thinks Twilight. Yeah, Twilight really has ruined the reputation of vampires. I don't like Twilight, but I don't think Vampire Knight is as bad as people say. However, I don't think it deserves #1. Then again, this just shows what people are buying, not what is actually the best.

I'm glad shows like Shiki can somewhat redeem vampires.

Good to see Kuroshitsuji and Ouran. Don't get why Vampire Knight is so popular, it's not THAT good.


I know, right? Vampires are surprisingly still hot in the States for some reason. And VK is just full of terrible writing and melodramatic hooey.

LOL, Rosario + Vampire is most certainly NOT shoujo.

But Kuroshitsuji most definitely is.
I... don't think that's what they meant.

This list is shit.
