This might seem like a weird question. It is. I work at a Borders Store. We sell Manga. Not loads, but enough to take up about a dozen shelves. Nobody in store really knows much about Manga, I probably know the most, and that's only because I hang around on the net most of the time. I want to know what Manga's actually sell well, or are popular in the UK, so that we can get some ordered in and put out to make the section a bit better. ISBN's would be appriciated with any suggestions.

I know we have the following (but don't ask me to tell you about them):
Fushigi Yugi
Dragon Ball Z
Case Closed

These are books btw. I don't know what format Manga usually comes in, but these are all A5 sized books. Thanks Manga people.

Hmmm....Fruits Basket and DNAngel are both very high selling mangas around here and just about everywhere else. I also heard that Kingdom Hearts is a big seller as well. Hope that helps =D

Fruits Basket and Battle Royal are a few names I've heard.

.Hack//Legend Of The Twighlight is pretty popular.

Ooh, We have Battle Royal, and the .hack// sounds familiar, I think we might have one or two of those.

Don't have Gollancz One Piece, no?

Full Metal Alchemist is also -easily- very popular.
