    I am surprised the Slime Isekai manga is that high

    Good to see Promised Neverland is doing well

    Nerd Academia is definitely selling too well :doge

    One Piece continues to dominate the toilet paper industry. Fascinating business model to make wiping your ass fun by putting finger paint drawings on the paper.

    I'm surprised at how Kingdom sells well yet you don't see much people talk about it or even acknowledge it.

    Wtf Slam Dunk sold like 5 million within 6 months. What's up with that?

    Huge boost for MHA. This is most likely the peak imo.

    Black Clover still doesn't manage to sell 450K per volume on a yearly basis. Anime will probably end after 100 eps.

    It got a re-release with new covers by Inoue which has been selling like hotcakes since June-ish basically, often dominating Oricon's weekly/monthly charts.

    As expected from One Piece
    I'm a bit surprised about NnT, I thought it would take a higher place.

    My Hero Academia that popular?

    Should re-start it after I dumped it after 5 chapters.

    I'm not, the anime is brilliant and I hear it is very consistent with the manga.

    I'm more surprised with how well Kingdom is doing.

    I have a feeling Wano will boost up One Piece sales again. Japan has been hyped for it for years. An its basically an arc set in fictional Japan.

    It warms my heart seeing Slam Dunk sell so well.

    People forget it is a top tier shounen.

    I see MHA having potential to surpass One Piece in sales.

    That is it really. Although maybe not because now the backlogg is caught up.

    Boruto isn't even my favorite manga, I just love the NF forum of it so much! :skully


    Anime be the real money maker anyways!

    If they forgot it was a top tier shonen, it wouldn't be selling now, would it?

    Nah.

    Like you say, its backlog had a massive boost due to the successes of the movie, anime, etc. but you got to remember that OP volumes still sell around 2 mil copies in a month as opposed to MHA's 600k. Even tho the former's initial sales are declining and the latter's increasing, that's still too much ground MHA has to cover.

    Well to be honest aren't One Piece volumes selling low because the last couple years the 4th volume comes out later.

    It use to be the 4th came out in November now it comes out in December, because the whole Oda breaks and stuff. So maybe it might catch a break MHA? Idk all the manga sells are down from years ago.

    Seems like sales are dropping year on year. Surprised but relieved Kingdomu is still selling so well despite this year having been fairly lacklustre. Disappointed OPM has dropped out of the Top 10 too, particularly when the current arc is a great one.

    OP volumes sell 4 times as much as MHA volumes. MHA has no chance.

    I'm flattered you instantly thought of me. believe it or not, unlike you I actually have other favourite series' outside of this franchise. :mjlol
    besides, Boruto manga not being in the top 10 series / top 50 volumes is no surprise to me so hop off my nuts. :catskully that chart covers sales from 20 November 2017~18 November 2018. Boruto released a whooping 2 volumes in that time period whereas series like MHA released 4. that is not to say Boruto would top the charts if a hypothetical weekly format had comparable sales to the current format, just that it's not an apt comparison.
    also funny how you tag me now but run away every other time we argue about the series' contents. no wonder people don't take you seriously. :oldshrug
