You CAN just skip to volume 61. There isn't much storyline involved anyways.

I had no idea DMC was that popular. Neat!

Yay! Fairy Tail and Detective Conan! Naruto was no news...

Why are you all so surprised about Conan?? It's a great manga... You say it is neverending, but then you say nothing of Major... VOLUME 68!! That's 6 more volumes than Detective Conan!!!

Yaaaay!!! Nodame!!!! <3!!!
Nice to see Fairy Tail up there too! :D

Nodame!!! I just caught up with the manga a few days ago and its a great story. Glad to see its getting the recognition it deserves in Japan.

And nice to see Fairy Tail and Major in there.

And Conan is still going strong. I'm a little surprised there.

Nodame Cantabile is a great anime and the manga is awesome. I can't wait till season 2 start airing. How long is Conan that show is going on like forever just finish the story already. I was a big fan of Conan but it just drag on and on.
