    Default High selling Manga in UK?

    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
    Chobbits
    Yu-Gi-Oh

    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.
    The Latias says it all, surely?

    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.


    I'm back until I get bored, srsly.

    Popular one's huh well you mainly see Tokyo Pop books so manga like Fruits Basket, .Hack Legend of the Twilight, D.N.Angel, Faeries Landing...just one's you find in normal book stores.
    Claiming is overrated, can be fun sometimes but others silly. I only claimed Henry Cavill as no one really knows him.

    Oh yeah and i'm paired up with the cool Chuboy.

    Claimed Henry Cavill on the Celebrity Claiming thread...he's all mine muh ha ha ha ha...^^;.

    I could go to my local Ottakers and see what manga they have (I buy a bit of manga). It's all Tokyopop though. Names I can remember; Chobits, DNangel, .hack//, Fruits Basket, Battle Royal, Tokyo Mew Mew, Yu Gi Oh, Pita Ten, Ai Love you, Mahromantic, Dragonball.
