...not bad at all.

My thoughts exactly. Lots of nice titles up there. I'll have to check out Saint Young Men soon.


You better buy the manga and not just read it online for free

I could be wrong but I don't think Saint Young Men has been officially released by a publisher in English yet. And since I can't read Japanese, no I will probably not buy a copy of it and I will read it online :D


That's sad to hear, I thought you were a supporter.


supporter of what? only sales in japan help anime/ova and manga ... sales in states do not help at all, espeically since the price is higher because fewer are produced in quanitiy ... really its kind of pointless to sell in amerika unless its naruto or bleach ><

Awsome, Hayate is still really up there!!
My question is what is the light novel Kaze no Kishihime?(Ranked nuber two for light novels) It looks like Zero no Tsukiama, and has the same artist, Eiji Usatsuka. It appears to be translated as "Second Wind Princess Knight" (used online translator) and was just released...

Woot, an increase of 60,000+ compared to the vol.22 1st week sales.

And Hayate still getting 100,000+ sales on the 2nd week? Not bad at all =D I really need to start reading the manga.

Seeing Saint Young Men so high makes me weep, almost. Oh, to have another translated chapter.
