News Japanese Comic Ranking, May 9–15

The lack of major Shogakukan and Shueisha manga debuts allowed some of the other publishers to rise onto the charts, although four current or former Shonen Jump titles from last week carried over to this week. Tsukasa Hojo can still sell copies with his trademark hired-gun action stories, while Keiko Suenobu's unflinching look at adolescent Life is the sole shōjo representative. Keisuke Itagaki is one of the few artists who can put two titles from two publishers on the top ten list in the same week.
