The 12th and final volume of Naoko Takeuchi's Sailor Moon manga ranked #1 on Nielsen BookScan's list of top 20 graphic novels in American bookstores for July. In addition, the series' 11th volume, which ranked at #4 last month, remained in the top 20 at #17.

Six other volumes of manga ranked in the top 20 for June. Masashi Kishimoto's Naruto volume 61 ranked at #4, Kazue Kato's Blue Exorcist volume 10 ranked at #10, Hajime Isayama's Attack on Titan volume 1 ranked at #12, Quinrose and Mamenosuke Fujimaru's Alice in the Country of Clover: Cheshire Cat Waltz volume 5 ranked at #13, Tite Kubo's Bleach volume 57 ranked at #14, and Yana Toboso's Black Butler volume 14 ranked at #15.

Naruto volume 61 had ranked at #2 last month, and Attack on Titan volume 1 ranked at #19 last month.

In addition, Travis Beacham's Pacific Rim: Tales from Year Zero HC ranked at #6. Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead series took four spots on the list.

The BookScan rankings represent sales at Barnes & Noble and other book chains, independent bookshops, and online purchases — but not sales at comic book stores, Walmart, and some other venues.
