Naruto 45, Bleach 37, Reborn! 23, Gintama 27, Worst 22 debut on top

Nine years after its release, the first volume of Naoki Urasawa's 20th Century Boys manga vaulted back onto Oricon's weekly comic chart at #28, thanks to the January 31 opening of the second film adaptation and the January 30 airing of the first film. A live-action television drama adaptation of Riko Miyagi's Mei-chan no Shitsuji (Mei-chan's Butler) shōjo manga continues to bolster sales of the original manga after its broadcast premiere last month. The seventh volume climbs back onto the chart at #30.
