Monster Musume...
Hmmm...What a controversial series.

Tried watching OPM after numerous recommendations and hearing the hype around it. Dropped it 3 episodes in. Did not keep my interest at all. I understand that it's a superhero parody but it's so boring to watch. Failed to make me laugh or slightly chuckle too which is unfortunate since it's a comedy.

Oh wow, oh wow, oh wow

HAHA

I enjoyed MonMusu, but this is pretty damn unexpected LOL

Glad it's doing well here though, even if it's just the 4-koma

Really? The fetish manga selling better than One-Punch Man? What is wrong with this world?

bro, this is the 3rd week for Volume 6 and it's stil 2nd.
And it's MM first week, ofc it's going to sell "a lot", but it will drop of the list sooner than OPM

Really? the joke bad parody manga is number 2? what's wrong with this world?

Are you salty because OPM has actual quality and substance beyond tentacles and physically-impossible large tits?
Large tits: Yes.
Tentacles: No.
I don't think either is bad, but I much prefer MonMusu because it's actually incredibly enjoyable to read. Not just for the ecchi but the art is gorgeous and the story is usually hilarious.

Monster Musume in 1st should be no surprise, but what is surprising to me is seeing Noragami up it the top 3. I don't think I've ever seen a Noragami volume rank that high in the NY Times list until now.
well the weird fact is that its not even the main series but just a collection of 4-koma stories by a bunch of mangaka.

That's the problem, OPM has no substance or ''quality''. It's in the same vain as a fetish manga. It's just catering a different crowd.

I don't care for either of the two manga. But putting one down because it's ecchi seems hypocritical to me.

Even better bruh, it's not even the main series, just a compilation of short stories by different authors

I haven't given Monster Musume a try yet, but it's nice to see something more lighthearted on the best seller list, instead of all those generic battle manga/ultra dark gore fest series.


Its a good manga but some parts just make you go like

For example
