PostSubject: Naruto IS Manga   Sun Mar 15, 2009 8:55 am

A recent comic and manga best seller list for the USA has revealed the embarrassing truth: manga is Naruto.

Of the recent top ten (for early March), only three non-Naruto titles feature, and the top ranks are entirely dominated by the title:

1. Naruto, Vol. 40, by Masashi Kishimoto. (VIZ Media, $7.95.)

2. Naruto, Vol. 41, by Masashi Kishimoto. (VIZ Media, $7.95.)

3. Naruto, Vol. 38, by Masashi Kishimoto. (VIZ Media, $7.95.)

4. Naruto, Vol. 39, by Masashi Kishimoto. (VIZ Media, $7.95.)

5. Bleach, Vol. 26, by Tite Kubo. (VIZ Media, $7.95.)

6. Naruto, Vol. 37, by Masashi Kishimoto. (VIZ Media, $7.95.)

7. Naruto, Vol. 35, by Masashi Kishimoto. (VIZ Media, $7.95.)

8. Gentlemen’s Alliance, Vol. 9, by Arina Tanemura.. (VIZ Media, $8.99.)

9. Black Cat, Vol. 19, by Kentaro Yabuki. (VIZ Media, $7.99.)

10. Naruto, Vol. 36, by Masashi Kishimoto. (VIZ Media, $7.95.)
Via AnimeAnime.

Typical Japanese manga sales for comparison purposes.

The 2ch response is interesting to hear:

“Americans love ninja, don’t they?”

“It’s like the Japanese Harry Potter…”

“Number 1 – Believe it!”

“Japanese fantasy is indeed strong…”

“American’s love of ninja is abnormal.”

“Naruto is vastly overrated overseas…”

“The reason he has blonde hair and blue eyes is for overseas sales.”

“So let’s have a Hollywood live action version then guys…”

“What about One Piece?”

“Wow, amazing. I love Naruto so I’m delighted it’s so popular overseas.”

“No To Love-ru?”

“The love of ninja is the same reason Japanese people love wizards – it’s curiousity towards a different culture.”

Simple story.
Protagonist is blonde.
