Tell me about it. I never once bought a English version of Kuroshitsuji, even though I love that manga, thanks to my friend warning me about the poor translation quality. Taking a glimpse at it myself, dropped that and kept to the scans, and if I do desire the manga, I'd buy it raw. Despite the poor translations, I guess some people buy it for the art work, or just for collective purposes.. Who knows, I just keep to the scans/raws and ignore it.

The main reason I buy the mangas is because it's my favorite series, and it makes me feel bad to read the scans online and not support the manga financially. Especially since Toboso was so strongly against people distributing her work for free. I do read the scans as they come out, but then I buy the volumes when they are released. :)

Wow, Black Butler is #1? That's kinda surprising to me. I only bought the first 3 volumes,(1-2 years ago) but they are just sitting in my collection because I dropped that series. I'm waiting to get the next Loveless volume. Also...Does anyone know why Karneval isn't in the bookstores? Is the series not officially in English yet? I was going to get some for my birthday, but I can only find it in German, French and Japanese >.>

Though I do hate rankings like this... They are never truly accurate if you think about it. There is always that possibility that they over looked something... so I never take these things at face value, but I bet it's fun for some to see something they like doing so well. Bravo to you people.

Anyway, to answer your Karneval question, moomoonya1, it has yet to be licensed. Right now, you can only read it online.

Attack on Titan is really popular in US :O

I'll say. It's probably the most liked anime/manga out there right now, sans Naruto/Bleach. And since it's finished airing, everyone's going to be eating up the manga.

I'm so glad Shingeki No Kyojin is selling so well, and also for me was a suprise that Watamote is even there since the show got critics about the sad parts (i love the show tho) and also happy about Bleach in the lask week since the manga is goin...well everybody knows.
