I'm glad to see Kodansha USA doing so well on this list. There's a lot of titles I'd like to see them bring over here and hopefully they'll have enough success to take some risks with their future choices. I'm surprised to see Arisa on this list, since it's a new title without a lot of name recognition (and a shoujo in that sea of shounen), but if the reviews I've read are any indication it certainly deserves its place -- I'm anxious to check it out when my copies of vol 1 & 2 arrive in the mail soon.

Oh, I didn't thought that the USA was so in late compared to France... Oo (Simple observation)

Negima was never under Tokyopop, it was Del Ray, and 29 is the first one released by Kondansha.

I bought it last week but it arrived this week so I wonder which one it counts to.
