Manga shut out for second straight week
For an unusual second week in a row, no manga appeared on the USA Today newspaper's list of the top 150 bestselling books for the week of August 11 to August 17. Based on previous trends, the next time a Japanese comic will rank on the list will not be until early September, when volume 31 of Masashi Kishimoto's Naruto (Viz Media) is published.
