Sports manga demonstrate how they are seasonal favorites as the baseball slice-of-life drama Ookiku Furikabutte leads the standings, with the diamond field classic Major and boxing's Hajime no Ippo trailing not far behind.

The sole shōjo title is #2's Kimi ni Todoke, a comedy of a sulky loner girl's struggle to adjust to high school.
