Naruto Nation campaign ends with volumes 25-27 on list
After a rare week in which no manga were present on USA Today's list of the nation's top 150 best-selling books, the final volumes of Naruto published under Viz Media's three-a-month release experiment have all returned to the list for the week of December 3 to December 9. Maintaining the pattern established in the last several months, Naruto Volume 27 is selling the strongest, as it opens at #55. Volumes 26 and 25 are not far behind, holding the #67 and #79 spots, respectively. After bringing out a total of twelve new volumes of the manga since September, Viz will now return to a bimonthly publishing schedule. Naruto Volume 28, which begins a new storyline set more than two years after the conclusion of the preceding volume, is due out in March.
