I'm glad that Full Metel Alchemist and One Piece is in the top ten. Other than that and Bleach, nothing else really did it for me.

Good for Hajime no Ippo. ;] Perfect Girl Evolution is still going on? And it's in the top 15? Wow. Did they actually stop repeating the same plot?

and this week, its WSM turn to hog the top 10 best sellers. but yeah, like vindemon said, sales are surprisingly abysmal.

Wow, manga sales are atrocious this week...well, actually, let me rephrase that. It seems like there was nothing that fans gobbled up to the level of other manga (i.e. One Piece, NANA, etc).

Wow Fairy Tail is at the top? That's a bit surprising, but I'm not complaining~ :D
