New York Times Best Sellers May 17-23

Three shojo titles rounded out the New York Times Manga Best Seller list for last week.

I still think Viz may have hurt their market more than helped it with the demise of Shojo Beat. Otomen was recently featured in the magazine and highly enjoyable. Vampire Knight has been standard fare for Shojo Beat readers and continues to attract more. The consumers have proven that they liked what they were reading. Now it's up to the internet to introduce new titles. It will be interesting to see what makes the list several months from now...if it does.

I'm just ready for the final volume of Fruits Basket! I will never understand why it takes translations so long to come out over here.
