The January issue of Media Factory's book and manga news magazine Da Vinci revealed its 13th annual "Book of the Year" list on Thursday. The rankings are not based solely on sales. Instead, a group of 4,625 voters including professional book reviewers, bookstore employees, and Da Vinci readers selected this year's lists.
- Silver Spoon (Volumes 1-5) - Hiromu Arakawa
- One Piece (Volumes 1-68) - Eiichiro Oda
- Space Brothers (Volumes 1-19) - Chūya Koyama
- March comes in like a lion (Volumes 1-7) - Chika Umino
- Detective Conan (Volumes 1-77) - Gosho Aoyama
- Chihayafuru (Volumes 1-18) - Yuki Suetsugu
- Kimi ni Todoke (Volumes 1-17) - Karuho Shiina
- Natsume's Book of Friends (Volumes 1-14) - Yuki Midorikawa
- Ōoku: The Inner Chambers (Volumes 1-9) - Fumi Yoshinaga
- Ore Monogatari!! (Volumes 1-2) - Kazune Kawahara & Aruko
Last year's list did not separate between novels and manga, and three manga made the general list. Oda's One Piece ranked at #5, Umino's March comes in like a lion ranked at #6, and Arakawa's Fullmetal Alchemist ranked at #10.
