New York Times' top ten manga for 12/3/12

Dec 03 // Brad Rice

This week we've got a big slate of new titles on the top ten. Seven Seas added its second title to the big boys club with the first volume of Haganai, while Miles Edgeworth proves to be a continued success for for Kodansha. Otherwise, much of the list is what you'd expect: some of the perennial top sellers, with a dash of classics and second-tier big titles making it in.

Let's take a look at the full list:

1. Soulless Vol. 2 - Week 1
2. Alice in the Country of Clover: Cheshire Cat Waltz - Week 2
3. Naruto Vol. 59 - Week 3
4. Spice and Wolf Vol. 7 - Week 1
5. Omamori Himari Vol. 9 - Week 1
6. Love Hina Omnibus Vol. 4 - Week 1
7. Bleach Vol. 50 - Week 3
8. Miles Edgeworth Ace Attorney Investigations Vol. 3 - Week 1
9. One Piece Vol. 65 - Week 1
10. Haganai Vol. 1 - Week 1

Remember, though, that as great as it is that all these titles are selling, it's still a small number. A publisher might sell out of their first print run, and only have sold 4,000 titles. We're a small industry, so if you want to help out, be sure to give the gift of manga to your friends.
