One Piece and Bakuman are awesome
Pluto didn't sell as much as I thought it would
Eye Shield 21 is getting a lot of bad reviews lol

I didn't know one piece was that popular & why Naruto is not in the list, thought it was too popular.

There are interesting mangas for me to check out :3

Wow, a lot of good series up there (Fuck yeah One Piece/Eyeshield/Bakuman/Vinland). Although, did Steel Ball Run get rerealesed or something? Because vol.1 has been out for a good while now...


oops, I missed "7". SBR volume 17 is correct.
