It pisses me off, considering Bleach is up there.

I'm wondering how come the FMA manga is so popular yet the anime only got to the top 10 in TV ratings in Japan once.

Apr 30, 2009 12:34 PM by AlExile

Maybe because last volume came out few months ago?

Abysmal sales this week, though FMA about to break 1 million total.
