Really? That explains it then. I'm sure that if instead of a smut shoujo it was an "ecchi" shounen this topic would be full of people complaining about how manga nowadays is all "ecchi" crap and the like, with all the backlash that series aimed at men with "fanservice" receive. But since it's "smut" aimed at girls then all it's okay. Gotta love the hypocrisy.
I think I'll read that Black Bird, just to see if it's any different than all the others "smut" shoujo and if it really deserves to be in the number one spot. Because really, to beat Naruto in sales it surely must have something that makes it "special", I guess.

Oh, man...I'm NOT reading ANY of these.

Read Volume 1 of Black Bird. Manga equivalent of a romance novel.

Black Bird if something like this is number 1,I feel terrible for the rest.

but actually, i'm pretty surprised how those girls ( .......and maybe boys..? ) have the guts to face the cashier person when the covers for each volume are just embarrassingly obscene lmao. i wouldn't wanna be seen reading it in public...


lol serious? I'd read it in public no problem, and I'm a guy.... buuut I'd practically read anything in public so thats not saying much lol.

I forget when new Soul Eater volumes are released. That's the type of man I was!

I have never heard of Black bird before this...
The rest of the list looks pretty normal though

Black Bird... really? At least the rest of the list looks pretty decent.
