Never underestimate the power of fujoshi *coughcough* >D


Ooo finally, yours is the first "extremely low" compatibility in manga I've seen.
But true, KHR is one big yaoi fest, though I'm beginning to believe it's better than bleach at least.

It actually hurts to see that Reborn sold more volumes than gintama </3 but mah well, I just want more volumes released over here.
The others are pretty predictable though, though it also pains me to see Bleach up there :/

Why is one piece always so popular? >.>
I got bored of it, after like, 50chapters.
Simple. Because it is work of genius. In Japan, Oda is called 'GOD' or 'Sensei'.

Not like I deny. He already has a plot of 50 'volumes' (not chapter) worth in his hand.


As far as I know, as "sensei" is an honorific showing the speaker's deepest respect for the addressee's work, beside teachers and doctors, artists (for example, novelists, film directors and mangaka) are often addressed as "sensei" in Japan. I definitely do not say that it is not something to brag about ^^, just that it is not just him, but most (if not all) of his colleagues. ^^

I mean no offense, actually, I am yet to check out One Piece..

I wish Gintama anime would resume airing sometime soon! ^^



forgive me if my interpretation is wrong but I think what ringoo4 meant is that Oda is either being called God as in GOda= God Oda or Oda-Sensei,.,

he doesnt mean that God in Japanese is Sensei because clearly God in Japanese language is Kami and Sensei- is definitely what you just explain.,.

One Piece rules,.,.

Woah, WSJ mangas dominated the top 10 sales. I really need to read One Piece now >.>

Index and Nekomonogatari in light novels. Cool.

^ but man, being Korean means unconditional worship towards One Piece!

I refuse to call Kubo 'sensei'. Done.
