Next month I hop to see UQ Holder and The Seven Deadly Sins on the list. They bother are releasing next month.


Yea, Uq holder is pretty good. Seven deadly sins... meh, It feels like I'm reading fairy tale. Another average manga. I really don't understand why it's getting so popular. I may watch the anime adaption whenever that comes.

Well yeah since it's about to end. Which sucks but everything comes to an end. Hopefully it'll be EPIC.

When it ends it will probably feels like my "childhood" is nothing more than a memory ): I just can't help but to feel that Naruto still has a lot of unused potential. I am hoping for an epilogue as a closure.


Yeah, Naruto is part of my childhood days too that's why I love it.
A Naruto prequel, sequel or spin-off would be really awesome.

These lists look almost the same every week. I wish we got a bigger variety of manga over here :I

This. Nothing new really. Maybe except for.. Naruto getting dethroned?


Except there is a problem, well, a few problems I think.

1. there ARE many manga series, in fact, if you go into the store. But possibly due to the structure of the US comic series, US fans are more used to long running series being their favorites. Hell, even after ending for such a long time, Star wars and Star Trek both have a loyal fanbase.

2. Not as many people are interested in manga. Manga as far as I see, is pretty mainstream in JP, with serious series such as Uchuu Kyoudai being best selling... Manga here appeals to a special crowd...

3. less significantly, the manga costs twice of what it does in JP...

Attack on titan still dominating? lol

This reminds me that I'm behind on Soul Eater and Kingdom Hearts.

Looks like Watamote dropped a bit from its previous week's ranking.


IIRC, volume 1 only ranked once in the top 10, so it seems volume 2 is already doing better.

Personally, I'm happy that it's doing so well here. Hopefully, the anime will show similar results once it gets released here.

Until volume 65 comes out that is.

Obviously, Naruto is selling very well over there.
