Below you can see the most popular manga for men and women aged 10-50, broken down by age group and gender.

The retail sales data used covers the year ending June 2009. For each title the single best selling compilation volume of the period is used as the basis; sales are not aggregated over the entire series.

The results might best be interpreted cautiously, as some of the top sellers dwarf other titles in their list, and not all of the demographics represent similarly sized markets.

That aside, the results:
