Is there any surprise here? Viz drops a ton of new releases, and they take over every spot on the top ten list -- save for #10 itself. Kodansha's Sailor Moon holds strong here. But taking a look at the rest of the list, it's all the titles we expect: Bleach and Bakuman, Naruto and Black Bird. Nothing too exciting this week, but let's take a look:
The interesting thing is that Yu-Gi-Oh! managed to top out Bleach when both debuted this week. It may be that some people are splitting their buys between the two volumes released, or that Naruto and Bakuman cannibalize some of the audience from Bleach. It'll take a few weeks, but I do wonder if we're seeing the popularity of Bleach fade.
