In its second week, the 17th volume of Natsuki Takaya’s Fruits Basket leaped 65 spots to No. 34 on USA Today’s Top 150 Books list.
According to Anime News Network, that’s the third-highest position for any volume in the series. Fourteen of the 17 volumes released in North America by Tokyopop have landed on the USA Today list, which tracks all genres and types of books sold in some 4,700 brick-and-mortar and online stores.
In April, the 16th volume of Fruits Basket reached No. 15, the best-ever showing for a manga.
Bleach, Vol. 20, and Fullmetal Alchemist, Vol. 14, both slipped off the chart this week.
