Blood Lad is surprising, hopefully this means the anime will get a good following from the US!

Well, it's a rerelease of a classic manga whose anime was popular in the US in the 90s and 2000s. I'm betting a lot of the people buying it are fans from back then. xD

Whoaa... I knew Sailor Moon was well known, however, I didn't think for a second it'd be more popular than Naruto.
It could most definitely use some Shingeki no Kyoujin :P

Wow, didn't know Sailor Moon was that popular.

I love it when Sailor Moon is #1. Now I'm two volumes behind for my collection. Dx

Is Sunny good? Never heard of it but I'm always looking for english manga releases to buy and the synopsis sounds like the enjoyment would entirely depend on the execution for me.

i live in ny but i dont have money for manga. I want One Piece to be on that list :(

Hopefully with Toonami's airing of One Piece it'll become more popular. Sadly the ratings for last week only hit 700k while Bleach and Naruto each hit 900k

Weird list.

It's like it's lacking in Shingeki no Kyoujin. jk. But it is.

Nice for US's Negima fans but they should not read the spoiler XD
This is a weekly list. Here is the link for anyone interested:

This goddam list is only reminding me how behind i'm in buying manga.

The majority of the X no Kuni no Alice series that's out...

And Black Bird continues to stay on the top 10, not surprised.
