The School Library Journal — a frequently referenced source of information for elementary, junior high, and high school librarians — released its Top 10 Manga of 2021 list on Wednesday. The list, which has no numerical order, includes:
- Keito Gaku's Boys Run the Riot volume 1
- Hitoma Iruma and Moke Yuzuhara's Adachi and Shimamura volume 1
- Naoya Matsumoto's Kaiju No. 8 volume 1
- NisiOisin and Suzuka Oda's Pretty Boy Detective Club volume 1
- Sasami Nitori's Wondercat Kyuu-chan volume 1
- Sumito Ōwara's Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken! volume 1

- Kumiko Saiki's Kageki Shojo!! volume 1
- Toranosuke Shimada's Robo Sapiens: Tales of Tomorrow
- Rumiko Takahashi's MAO volume 1
The list last year delegated manga in to elementary school, middle school, and high school categories. The lists included titles such as Yuzu the Pet Vet, Rose of Versailles, SPY x FAMILY, Blue Period, and With a Dog AND a Cat, Every Day is Fun.
The list this year instead stated grade levels for the manga, for example the list stated "grade 8 and up" for Boys Run the Riot.
