Really glad to see Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler) at the top! The story itself isn't that great, but the characters are a bit addictive (or should I say, Sebby-chan) and the art is so pretty. Pandora Hearts and Ao no Exorcist (Blue Exoricst)!

Of course Kuroshitsuji and Naruto are on the list.

How many Manga volumes do they sell in US each week on average?

Anyone know what the best selling series are in US?

We have no idea on hard sales numbers, but I believe Naruto is the highest selling series in the US.

Bow the fuck down to Kuroshitsuji. Stealing Rosario+'s first place like a boss, better quality than your faves, slaying the US charts, etc.

no i don't care that alois isn't in the manga shut up

Are you talking about how many copies or how many different volumes is released each week?

Number of copies sold is unknown, the closest we can get to answer is this: click here
You can also see what are some of the best selling volumes and series past few years.

As for number of volumes, I just checked and here is the number of volumes released per month for this year:
January - 31
February - 51
March - 46
April - 55

Releases range from 4 to 34 new volumes per week. There was also one week in March where no new volumes have been released. Most new volumes usually get released during first few days of every month.
