Honestly even though its bad I'd rather have Naruto at number 1 than Vampire Knight. This list is just atrocious.

twilight - putting useless shoujo emo "vampires" in top1 spots since gods know when.

not surprised on Naruto, since its still this "new big fad" for kids in the west, despite its obvious shortcomings. I am surprised that the readers actually buy it, from my recent trips to USA, I got the impression that majority of those who read Naruto, just sit down in the corner of book store and slurp through the pages(a common view in the book stores out there)


Otherwise unsurprising top full of mainstream, shallow, kid-friendly stuff, which can partially be attributed to lack of information on the manga in USA as well as to the trends of customer majority in the overall anime/manga worldwide market


5 star post if I ever saw one.

It is true that we do this, but it is because we need to waste time. I personally have done this and then went back to buy the volume and I know my friends do it too. I'm not sure what state you went to?

Honestly, the sales probably did drop week to week, but everything above it fell even harder.

The list never really seems to change. It´s always the same series, almost, with one or two new series popping up
