Once upon a time during business hours on any given day in any given city, you could walk into your local Borders bookstore and see stacks and stacks of manga fans sitting cross-legged, reading "Naruto" or "Fruits Basket" and obliviously blocking access to the shelves.
Ms. Diaz-Przybyl noted that manga confronts some of the same problems - especially digitial formats and the concomitant problem of piracy - as regular books.
Lillian Diaz-Przybyl, a former senior editor at Tokyopop, said that while Tokyopop had strong relationships with other bookstores, Borders remained central.
