VIZ's manga titles swept all ten top spots on Nielsen BookScan’s Adult Fiction Overall Graphic Novel list for the week ending May 28, 2006.
The top ten titles were:
1. NARUTO, Volume 10
"We are extremely gratified to see ten of our manga titles on Bookscan’s Top Ten," stated John Easum, Executive Vice President of VIZ Media. "It’s not a stretch to say that NARUTO has become the most popular anime and manga property in North America and the favorable placement of six volumes of the series in the Bookscan list validates that. We look forward to the continued stellar success of the series. We also anticipate continued growth for our other top performing titles such as BLEACH and DEATH NOTE, and we are optimistic that some new VIZ titles will also soon break the top ten!"
I was pleased to see Death Note make the list. It has one of the most intricate and satisfying plots of any of the manga on my reading list, and it reminds me of a Sherlock Holmes story.
