you know, its nice to see arakawa under the bridge up there, but would any of us have known about this manga if it hadnt been animated? i highly doubt it and that somewhat irritates me. dont ask why, it just does.


Speaking for myself, i already knew the other work of Hikaru Nakamura, Saint Young Men and then found about this one before the anime

and one of the objectives of animating a manga is to increase the sales of it, so if more people know about it and the sales really increase the work is done :)

Because I like Arakawa anime, and that's the original version of it. So, there is nothing wrong with getting amused from seeing it in the list, as I just recognised its value true.

hurr durr simple logics

Shouldn't it be "Here are the weekly manga sales rankings"?

I guess both are correct.

5. a list showing such standing.

rankings
