Several people interviewed, along with the editors, mention Manga in The Pulse's look at the top stories of 2002 in the comic book industry.
Kuo-Yu Liang, vice president of sales & marketing at Diamond Book Distributors told The Pulse (for their 2002 review) that, in his opinion, the big story of 2002 was "The emergence of Manga as a money-generating category for bookstore and entertainment chains." He also sees Love Hina as a possible title that may "become a legitimate mainstream market bestseller and sell in the hundreds of thousands of copies."
