    We're kind of getting ahead of ourselves, we don't even know if that's what the "D" is referencing

    Digital Distribution..
    Monkey D Luffy.. (Will of D finally being explained..?) .. Do Flamingo (Super mega ultra stretch lol)
    Dragon Ball
    Death Note. (Ey they finished Bakuman already but.. I think they would take a longer break, who knows?)
    D-Gray Man
    Also to me one of the fonts seems like the font on the back of the Digimon cards used on Digimon tamers.. Digimon is shueisha so.. yeah super mega long stretch lol

    I'm interested in what the D stands for but I doubt its anything related to just one piece manga.

    Its probably something that affects the whole magazine so I'm going to say digital distribution like others have said.

    How old is that list Zeromcd? Thought Naruto would be higher lol. One Piece isn't a shock. Bleach being at the bottom was surprising but maybe the Rebooted Souls will help change that around in the 2nd half of 2012. Naruto will probably get a huge boost in old manga sales after the manga ends.

    First half of 2012 so it is recent. These are the sales for the old volumes only so its more useful for seeing how many new fans the series are attracting.

    Ok ok, I haven't read the last 100 or so chapters, but is Toriko really as brilliant as the TOCs make it out to be?

    Even if I prefer some other jump series over Toriko, it is still one of the best of the current lineup so the ranks are not that much undeserved.
    The mangaka has quite a good idea where the story is going which is also a good sign. Only, you have to accept the completely unrealistic world than Toriko is.

    i actually dropped toriko around 25-40, because of the masculine and old art style. couldn't get used to it. i'm actually surprised how well it places in the toc, because it's really different from any other series in jump, but this could be one key of its success.

    It's not that different than other series in Jump: hot blooded action, takes place in a fantasy world, features magical powers, a hard working protagonist striving to fulfill a goal with the help of his friends, the manga will end with Toriko realizing his goal and completing his full course menu (or w/e). Shimabukuro's art is quite individualistic, but all of Jump's more successful artists can claim the same. No Jump manga should ever be described as unique, it's an insult to all of the manga that truly are one of a kind. It would also suggest that someone reads way to much shounen.

    "Unique" isn't even a good judge of quality. Being different is not an end unto itself. Writing is a craft, storytelling is a discipline. A manga can be judged on the story the mangaka has to tell and how well the mangaka tells it.

    I think he was more speaking about the art style than the plot judging by his first comment.
    And I'm not sure to understand your last phrase, who said that unique manga were good ?
