Top 20 Manga Properties for Q3 2008

Every quarter, ICv2 puts together their list of the top twenty manga properties as they discern via multiple methods, from the Nielsen Bookscan listings to conversations with retailers and more. This quarter there aren't all that many surprises on the list as the usual titles continue to dominate the chart. Vampire Knight continues to be the biggest surprise out there this year as it gains more and more traction in the manga world and will only do better when the anime side of it eventually makes its way over. Another surprise is the showing of an OEL title, though In Odd We Trust certainly has the name recognition of Dean Koontz behind it.
