So we're all just gonna ignore the fact that Monster Musume is in the top five Western list of best selling Manga? Okay then.

I ain't even mad. Monmusu FTW!!


Indeed! Monster Musume seems to have really taken off in the US and it seems to be doing well in the UK too.

I tried to order the second volume not so long ago but it's at least out of stock on 2 or 3 sites. The recent one I ordered from is back ordered. Sucks to me be because I have to wait but thinking outside the box it's actually a positive thing because that means that Monster Musume is selling a lot.

I don't think anyone ever anticipate that MonMusu would take off like this but I for one am certainly glad it has. =D

Wow , a lil' suprised with Fairy Tail up there ,
Same here. I don't recall ever seeing Fairy Tail in the top 10.
Actually, FT hits the charts here and there, it is one of the best selling mangas by Kodansha USA after all.

Naruto, awwwyeahhhh!!!!!

I saw Monster Musume back then on Mangafox, that time, it only has few chapters, I read a few chapters just to check it out and it was alright. I never thought that it was so popular ahahaha. I'm going to read it soon :3

Good to see Attack on Titan there on the list.
I'm just waiting for Nisekoi to finish airing before I watch it!!!!!
I really want to buy Manga, but it's so pricey here in my place and it's limited :/

We're going to ignore all the series that made it on the list and talk about One Piece instead. lmao jk jk

I do find that hilarious though. Using an entire thread to talk about the awesomeness of a series that has no association with the list. Ignore all the series that made it. Pure gold. :3

On a side note. Happy to see less of Shingeki. It's awesome for the mangaka + co for it to last this long, and the success of the series is crazy impressive. I personally just enjoy seeing... other series on the list. :P


HA, HA. Good old shingeki, never expected it to last this long. Too bad no chapters will be release until march... Long wait here we come :(

What's the max length One Piece's stayed on the list? 3 weeks? Hopefully it'll last longer with the OP ad months ago, and with the Dressrosa arc coming out. I so want OP to do well :(

I just realized. I live in NY but I don't buy any of the new volumes... yet I'm rooting for it on the NYTlist.... such a fail! I should start buying the freaking new volumes! But wait... I don't have a job... I should get one... but I've never had one before! :O Damn it! What to do.... :D

Get a job for the first time then.


Hard to do when I have school, clubs, hw, and home responsibilities (dad's sick...). That being said, I do plan on getting a job... after I get my driver's permit... which will hopefully be soon... gots to take the written test :P

I've never had a job yet either. I've been looking for one ever since I finished school, but where I live jobs are pretty dried up, let alone for an 18 year old (who they have to pay adult wages) who doesn't have any job experience. Hopefully when I get my license I should be able to widen my job search a bit. Last job interview had 60 other people going for it.
