One punch man hype is slowly fading which is pretty fast IMO, thought it would dominate the list for the remainder of the year at least, since even new releases would be kick out of the top 10, to make way for all the one punch man volumes. And now its making way for the supposingly new hype series that is my hero acadamia which will air in spring.

This is the first time no Tokyo ghoul volumes is on the list as well.

Now people will not have to cry about lack of variety on the list, atleast for this week. Lol


The top still garbage (except maybe for Jojo)

Great to see Food Wars! on the list again. Hopefully the second season brings it back to the list more often.

It's only in NY tho.

Mah Shonens.

You just know that Toonami gave Akame ga Kill a boost. I bet it'll be helping Dimension W too, mark my words.

What the heck is this

NO MAINSTREAM EDGY EMO MANGOS AND DIVERSITY

Like oh my god is this a dream

No mainstream edgy emo mangos? Please tell me what AgK is then.
It's not an emo manga

It's a try hard medieval grunge manga

Which is not necessarily better but it's not emo

so getting second place is like a miracle.

Not really, I just checked the last 10 volumes and only 1 didn't get top 2, but it did get 3rd.
OP just doesn't stay on the list very long


Yea, that's true.

yeah but the fans of OPM are shounen-fans most likely :^)

and one piece is volume 77, so ofc there would be more people buying academia volume 1


Yeah but its older and should have a bigger fanbase (I imagined), plus this is the 3rd volume of MHA, I guess is the superhero elements that people like it.


One piece doesn't usually does well on this list, so getting second place is like a miracle.

Noragami FTW!

and other week with one piece in the up

Same thought, tho OPM is seinen xD But My Hero Academia > One Piece? Really the new stuff outsold One Piece? How? Why? How? One Punch Man since on the list.

America is so lucky. You guys got Manga like One Punch Man, Shokugeki no Souma Akame Ga Kill really quickly. In Germany everything goes so slow. Very annoying

Oh god, the list is diverse enough to make me cry ;_;. Assassination Classroom, JoJo and Food Wars, did NY gain a taste? I don't even care that it's all shounen manga. My Hero Academia at #1, wonder what will happen once the anime is airing?! But what surprised me the most is JoJo. Hopefully is sells more.

diversity on the NYT bestsellers list, never thought i'd live to see the day

I got my copy of Academia 3 last week. Good to see it doing well.

Great to see Academia doing so well.

Really hope Monster Musume makes it next week! I even bought a copy myself to help the cause! I knew the list would be diverse this week, it hasn't been diverse because no new titles had come out for a while. Nice to see the change though.
