The 68th volume of Masashi Kishimoto's Naruto manga took the #5 slot on Nielsen BookScan's Top 20 Graphic Novel chart for January. This is the volume's second rank on the chart.
The first volume of Hajime Isayama's Attack on Titan ranked at #8, rising from its December ranking at #15. The omnibus edition of Takeshi Obata's All You Need Is Kill manga adaptation of Hiroshi Sakurazaka's sci-fi novel ranked at #18.
Nielsen BookScan's Top 20 Graphic Novel chart began including non-fiction graphic novels for the first time this month. Two non-fiction titles ranked on the list in the top five.
The BookScan rankings represent sales at Barnes & Noble and other book chains, independent bookshops, and online purchases — but not sales at comic book stores, Amazon, Walmart.com, and some other venues.
