I think the manga industry is going to die in 10 years or so...

Because One Piece will end.

May 13, 2011 4:48 PM by Valaskjalf

One Piece, Medaka, and Embalming are there so this is a good week for me.

May 13, 2011 4:41 PM by Rejuvenation

there'll be fair competition when One Piece ends

KHR! in second and first, yay~ But the difference between One Piece and KHR!'s sales...aww q___q;


Actually, it is very impressive since I heard it wasn't doing that well like half a year ago... Good for it! I love KHR (One Piece more though, and about by the difference, too) XD

It's always good to see Giant Killing there.

May 12, 2011 5:15 AM by MSaint

There's too much shounen there, I can't..

May 12, 2011 2:40 AM by holypoop

One Piece isn't dominating it because people have bad taste, One Piece is dominating because there are a few who have bad taste!

May 12, 2011 2:32 AM by RingoPie

One Piece destroyed the competition.

May 12, 2011 1:14 AM by ravage101

One piece place is totally deserved. Period.

One piece number 1
AGAIN
why am I not surprised? Oh wait
(remembers other numerous manga rankings)
oh well I'm starting to learn to like One piece so it doesn't matter


"I'm starting to learn to like"
wat

Well, given the fact that you gave Monster a 5 I'll just assume you are a troll.

@KeiranShikari wait, you say One Piece is bad taste? Think of it this way, what's more likely, that 2,367,582+ Japanese people have bad taste, or just you... You can not like One Piece, but don't simply ignore it on other people's opinions

May 12, 2011 12:19 AM by SoraKing

WSJ completely dominating the top 10. Thank God for NnM still selling well despite low ranks on ToCs. Lol at Medaka's rank.

May 11, 2011 11:31 PM by belatkuro

Japan yet again conformed for bad taste.
