-_- Hunter x Hunter must be really popular in jump to be so high in the ratings seeing as how it's always on hiatus(until recently) and the drawings haven't been the best. I still love it to death though and if Togashi keeps up the good work, it'll probably be the new HST alongside One Piece(favorite) and Naruto. Bleach is getting better but meh, the white backgrounds and speedy chapters aren't one to be desired. I also love that Bakuman is doing so well still and I may check out the manga in second place "Shingeki no Kyojin?".

Still no anime adaptation ;_;

I've just read 4 chapters of Shingeki no Kyojin, it's absorbing from the very beggining and yup, original. Definitely worth a look.

One Piece really deserves to be at the top. And I 'll have to start reading Shingeki no Kyojin as I see that this manga is very well received and its premise looks very interesting.

Hunter X Hunter is doing pretty good again this week, even the last volume is in top 30...:P


After a 1 year Hiatus, back and still strong! ^^

When I first started anime/manga years ago, One Piece was on the top, and it'll be the most popular for one more decade.

Two favourites, both first on manga and novel rankings. Rich and original world is the first step for something to sell well. Nuff said.

//gonna try Shingeki no Kyojin, synopsis seems interesting.

Aug 18, 2011 3:10 PM by Noone13

yeah! GO one piece! XD

I'm surprised that nobody has announced Shingeki no Kyojin anime yet, the manga is selling pretty good, or does it not have enough material?
Same thing for KHR! ...

But which side stories are these? There are a lot of side stories out there that were only available in limited edition versions of the anime and other stuff, iirc. :|a
