Dear manga fans, will you do me a huge favor?

If you have any of these titles on hand in English (official ones, not scanlations), will you grab them and see if they include Japanese terms like -san and -sama and -chan and whatnot? I just need a YES/NO. (And if you have all of them, I don't expect you to look at all of them--even checking one or two would be really helpful :))

Naruto NO
Death Note NO
Fruits Basket YES
Bleach NO
Vampire Night YES
Full Metal Alchemist NO
Chibi Vampire YES
Black Cat NO
One Piece NO

If they do have the Japanese honorific titles included, then I gotta go buy/tachiyomu/borrow them. If not, I get to list them in the "NOT!" column (and figure out why :P). But if you can just help me with the YES/NO part, it would be a great start. I'm pressed for time and your assistance would make my life so much easier. I'll send you a postcard....

Those are all Viz/Tokyopop/Del Rey, I notice. I don't know what the most notable titles from smaller publishers were for 2008, It would be nice to include a few of those, but I don't know how to choose in any meaningful way. And of course, my comparison for 1998ish is going to be a different set of publishers (Dark Horse, anyone?).

I read a random later Dresden Files book, Proven Guilty, because it was in the house. Keep in mind that I've read only this one and the first one, which I complained about a little. This one is indeed much better written, and I'll be happy to fill in the middle volumes eventually.


Someone posted this portrait by John Singer Sargent to [livejournal.com profile] lamodeillustree and now I'm dying to do a drawing based on it with her as an airship captain. Isn't she perfect?I love her. He seems like a stick in the mud, never mind him. (Click for a huge version.)
