Negima has been out for 3 weeks, doesn't anyone actually look at the numbers and not the rankings.

Vagabond sold alot, that is quite good for that story.

Doubt in 10 place? Good...

I'm very pleased for 'Vagabond'. Out of the admittedly small amount of manga I have read so far, 'Vagabond' is my firm favourite.

Jun 3, 2009 9:20 PM by OranSolus

Yay. Ups to Vaga, Tenge, Zet, Negi, and Saru Lock.

Jun 3, 2009 6:54 PM by Ishmael

haha! Kiss X Sis Made it into the list, although it's way down there..

Jun 3, 2009 6:52 PM by yunadestined

New titles at the top. Yay!

Nice. The list is improving lately. I'm a little surprised to see FIVE up there though. I read a bit of it a while back and remember it being pretty terrible even for a shoujo. The art is just horrendous. Maybe it gets better in later volumes. In any case, this reminds me that I need to start Vagabond soon.

Jun 3, 2009 6:20 PM by LucySky

Wow, I would never have guessed that Kaze Hikaru would rank so highly! It's good to see that the Shinsengumi craze is still alive and well.

Jun 3, 2009 5:27 PM by grimmfeather

oh cool, Saru Lock getting a LA adaptation. Definitely gonna check that out.

Jun 3, 2009 4:57 PM by Faust721

Nice to see Vagabond getting decent sales. Speaking of which, I need to continue reading that again.
