Manga Tops Graphic Novel Sales

According to ICV2, manga has topped sales of all graphic novels in the first weeks of 2005. Ken Akamatsu's followup to the Love Hina series, Negima was the top selling novel. According to the article, Negima was labelled as a children's novel. The funny thing is that when I bought my copy of the initial Negima graphic novels as Media Play, it was shrink-wrapped with a parental advisory sticker on it.

Go figure.
