YAY FOR SAIUNKOKU MONOGATARI >u<

I wonder why Bleach is #2....
Really, it has been a long time science it was a good manga. Then again, I think it's just fans being loyal to the product.

Bingo.

The reachable to all ages stuff is always going to be a higher seller then niche titles or adult material that are usually of better quality and style.

I wonder if the Yu-Gi-Oh Zexal manga has some duels, if so I want to read it. If not I'll stick to the anime, it's actually quite funny.

Jun 9, 2011 7:33 AM by Hoppy

good too see that Claymore and Sora no Otoshimono are still popular :D

Jun 9, 2011 7:26 AM by 1C3MARK

A good amount of shounen manga o.O quite the expected list.
