Hunter X Hunter Vol. 25 is 6th Best Seller in First Half of 2008

As far as we know, Yoshihiro "Mr. Naoko" Togashi is still on his hiatus from Hunter X Hunter. However, Amazon Japan has released it's top best sellers in manga for the first half of 2008 (December 2007-May 2008) and we were pleased to learn that volume 25 of the popular shonen manga ended up in 6th place. Volume 25 is the latest volume of the manga to be published, and it was released March 4th. For it to have sold that much in under three months and end up on this list is a feat in itself.
