Monster Girls Rule New York Times Manga Best Seller List

"Watamote" tops Amazon's sales list on its release

Appropriate for the season, the New York Time's manga best sellers list for this week is entirely populated by monsters and the supernatural. What's interesting about the top 10 is that the usual suspects like Attack on Titan, Bleach and Rosaria Vampire are bested by a newcomer, Seven Seas' debut of Monster Musume.
