NY Times Manga Bestsellers: Rosario + Vampire Rules, Dogs and Inuyasha Debut

By April 23, 2010

Follow me on:

Rosario + Vampire Season II  Vol. 1While last week's top 10 was dominated by five volumes of One Piece by Eiichiro Oda, this week's New York Times Graphic Books Bestseller List, finds that the pirate invasion was a short one, as most of the prior week's top sellers have returned to reclaim their spots.

For the second week in a row, the first volume of Rosario + Vampire Season II hangs on to the top of the charts. Meanwhile, proving that every dog has his day, the sci-fi action thriller Dogs: Bullets and Carnage and the ever-popular (and very long running) fantasy series InuYasha grabbed the #5 and #7 spots respectively.

Five weeks after its debut. Twilight The Graphic Novel continues to rule the graphic novels hardcover list. Take that Kick-Ass!

Here's the rest of the New York Times Graphic Books Manga Top 10 for the week ending April 17, 2010.
