2009 Top Manga Properties

Naruto published by Viz Media is #1 on the top 25 list, while Tokyopop's Fruits Basket is #2. In third place is Viz Media's Vampire Knight. Although the list also includes properties from Del Rey and Yen Press, the list is dominated by Viz Media.

To go further in the manga category, there are the shonen and shojo area. Again, Viz Media is the majority holder of the top 10 list for both. However, in the shojo top 10 list, Tokyopop is #1 with Fruits Basket. Del Rey and Yen Press are on the shonen top 10 list, placing 6 and 7 for Del Rey and 10 for Yen Press. However, Yen Press is not on the shojo top 10 list. Come to think of it, do they have a shojo manga??
