I was very surprised to see L-DK there, love the manga but wouldn't have thought to see it there.

And first time seeing OP cumulative sales...wow.

Good to see Fairy Tail showing some muscle. Get's boring when One Piece is always on top.

Seeing Gantz there reminds me that maybe I might read it.

Shingeki no Kyojin is still in the top ten, this makes me happy.

If no shonen volumes are released next week, then it will probably jump back up to #1.
