New York Times' top ten manga for 12/10/12

2:00 PM on 12.10.2012 // Brad Rice

The lists are out once again, and it's largely a repeat of what we've seen in weeks previous. Evangelion managed to jump into the #2 slot, while Is This A Zombie? grabbed #6 -- otherwise, we're looking at a lot of repeats in the big-named titles. Alice in the Country, Spice and Wolf, and Vampire Knight are all titles with strong appeal towards women.

What's interesting to see is that Yen Press has another crossover hit with Soulless, grabbing onto whatever fans there are of steampunk romance novels. We'll see how it progresses over time. Here's the full list:

1. Alice in the Country of Clover: Cheshire Cat Waltz Vol. 3
2. Neon Genesis Evangelion Vol. 13 - Week 1
3. Blue Exorcist Vol. 8 - Week 3
4. Naruto Vol. 59 - Week 4
5. Soulless Vol. 2 - Week 2
6. Is This A Zombie? Vol. 3 - Week 1
7. One Piece Vol. 65 - Week 4
8. Rosario + Vampire: Season II Vol. 10 - Week 3
9. Vampire Knight Vol. 15 - Week 3
10. Spice and Wolf Vol. 7 - Week 2
