    So the evidence is in, and the conclusion is final:

    Pirates beat Ninjas.

    By more than five to one, apparently.

    FT doesn't even have a solid story line, it's been mini arcs after another and a ton of lousy fan service + chibified midgets

    Wait... you are reading/watching Fairy Tail for the story?

    I'm pretty sure Natsu doesn't want to find the dragon that is his 'dad' to kill him. Same with the other dragon slayers. It's true though, FT is full of mini-arcs and fan-service.

    well i wouldnt say there isnt a main story line for fairy tail like i mean its abt natsu being a dragon slayer and dragons going missing on the same day year and month. so heres a thought that the dragon slayers haf to go find the dragons and kill them i dunno just a thought.

    First they have to beat Exorcists XD

    And if we're talking about Wizards/Mages. For me the:
    40. Mahou Sensei Negima! [1,103,573]
    was a nice information (though I hoped it would be higher)

    Don't forget that Negima is going out only once a month, so it's popularity is way lower... It's not always that way though.

    Umm... I could be wrong, but isn't Negima a weekly series? Sometimes Akamatsu takes 3 weeks off, but it should still come out weekly. It IS puplished in a weekly magazine after all.

    Not really - One Piece has more sales then the other top EIGHT competitors.

    Pirates > Wizards + Ninjas + Exorcists + Food + Mangakas + Samurai

    And toriko is also coming up really fast, with a lot less chapters.
    So, Food > wizards.

    FT has a horrible story but it's still good. Kind of like Gintama, although for different reasons.

    37,996,373 X 410 YEN = 15,578,512,930 YEN ≒ 200,230,000 USD

    Tbh, 2*10^8 is actually almost insignificant to an economy as large as Japan's.

    Sadly the guy that makes the damn thing wouldn't even see 5% of that revenue, it would all be going to magazine it's published in and their investors.

    this is incorrect, according to today's exchange rate 37,996,373 YEN = 488,454.95 USD So .5 million USDs is quite understandable for a manga in one year

    Actually, you are incorrect. Your post assumes that a tankoban sells for 1 yen.

    488,454 USD x 410 = still >200 million USD

    If in doubt, use google anon.
    Typing in "38000000YEN to USD" will convert it for you without having to do complicated mathematical tasks like multiplication.

    True, but for a series to reach 600+ chapters and still be so interesting, I would probably agree with it's 1st place ranking.
    Though the difference between 1st and 2nd is still pretty surprising.

    I beg to differ. I think the series got MORE interesting as it went on. However the reasons manga reading sites have Naruto listed as #1 is because Naruto is more popular over here in the States than One Piece. In my opinon, One Piece's story/characters are a lot better written than Naruto's

    I can't help but agree. If you checked multiple manga reading sites, Naruto is usually #1 and One Piece is usually in 5th or above.

    Popularity does not mean quality.
    Twilight. Enough said.

    What's surprising about it is the fact that One Piece wasn't interesting in the beginning and only got less interesting as it continued.

    In this case it's the freakin quantity that's driving things. And the length of time.

    That argument might hold water if the other comics aren't also far into the double digits. Naruto's total volumes are 5/6 One Piece's. It's selling at 1/7.

    If I was to start reading One Piece today, and if I liked it, I'd probably buy the rest of the volumes.

    One person, 64 sales.

    This isn't that hard to understand...

    no idiot. this is the total sale from nov 2010 to Nov 2011. so it's valid to compare.

    I'll have to agree with Anon 17:11. It's been a few years since the last time Bleach was good.

    Over half of the Bleach fanbase gave up on it midway through the Hueco Mundo arc.

    At first when I started watching it Soul Society Arc had just ended and I kept watching the 1st filler arc 'n' it was still cool, but den I read the manga and was like "come on cut this filler crap and get on with the awesome Arrancars already!!"

    But den the Hueco Mundo Arc finished and I was like "GOD, WHY AM I STILL READING THIS CRAP FOR 3 FUCKING YEARS..."

    And then, I guess, I stopped reading...
