A yaoi manga placed first?! EEEKS!
It is indeed a bit unexpected that Love Mode placed first. It just shows how important girls are for the manga business in Germany. Furthermore it was probably highly anticipated, as if I am correct, it was on hiatus for a while, because of licensing issues in Japan and the issues took forever to be resolved (Volume 7 of Love Mode was published back in May 2006). Still I am surprised it won versus both, Detective Conan and Inuyasha. Respect fangirls, respect! A real pity that no seinen will ever be able to claim the throne.
