Top 25 Manga in America

girls-of-shonen-jump

American publishing industry figures for the top selling manga franchises help underline the superior taste of American audiences when it comes to manga, and (rather more surprisingly) the fact that US manga fans have apparently forsaken the shonen manga holy trinity…

The ranking, based on estimated manga sales in the first half of 2011:

1. Naruto

2. Bleach

3. Vampire Knight

4. Black Butler

5. Death Note

6. Blackbird

7. Rosario + Vampire

8. Fullmetal Alchemist

9. Dragonball & DBZ

10. Soul Eater

11. One Piece

12. Maximum Ride

13. Alice in the Country of Hearts

14. Hetalia

15. Yu-Gi-Oh!

16. Pandora Hearts

17. Bakuman

18. Fruits Basket

19. Dendeki Daisy

20. D. Gray Man

21. Yotsuba!

22. Ouran High School Host Club

23. Shugo Chara

24. K-On!

25. High School of the Dead

That One Piece places so poorly, whilst K-ON! and Highschool of the Dead manage to make an appearance amidst the otherwise all but unchallenged shonen and shoujo domination, rather suggests (some) change is in the air.
