This isn't too shabby Viz. A lot of the big Manga titles are here - One Piece, Naruto, Blue Exorcist, Rurouni Kenshin, and Black Cat. Lots of great reads, They also have Bleach.. I await your hate mail
About the only things that I think are lacking from the lunch line up are Yu Yu Hakusho and Monster. Hopefully we'll be seeing more in the near future.
You can find all the titles here.
