Hey, when I was 6 years old, I was watching Dragonball Z.

Children have the right to be childish. I say, blame the teenagers and adults who should know better but buy/read the stuff anyway.

lol naruto, thats all those americans know about.

Hey, I'm American and I know Claymore, Victorian Emma, Pani Poni Dash, Sayonara Setsubo Sensei, and other better anime than Naruto. XD

But it's such as shame that better series aren't popular enough in the States.

So now retardedness isn't even secluded to the bookstore... hmmm... we're going to have to do something about this... I'm not sure what... or how... but something! xD

No but in all honesty I'd prefer manga not to be in Wal-Mart/Target/Etc. I'd like them to stay in the nice little bookstores that I go to. It's a much better atmosphere in a small bookstore that you wouldn't think would have 5 shelves of manga than going into Wal-Mart for the "most popular" manga series.

Are you effing serious, so223? =_____= Now that's just too far.


I'm completely serious. I was browsing around in the magazine/book aisle at the local Super Wal-Mart and came upon it. My sister and I were both thinking "WTF????".

This does not surprise me at all. I mean, they were selling Naruto manga at the local Wal-Mart where kids can easily get their grubby hands on it.

Also blame it on Viz for marketing the title to brats who can't even reach for a copy on the book shelf.

Ninjas ARE cool.


....... Just not ninjas who wear orange jumpsuits and jump around in the open like a moving target. -_-

What the fuck. Naruto?! Well, it's to be expected, as America's teen population is 99.99 percent weeaboo.
