Not sure why people are correlating the latest chapter of SnK to the sales of Vol 25 since it's not even included in that vol.


How many copies did volume 24 sell?
A little bit more https://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=1699105

I read the SnK comments above like it's something new and amazing when the numbers are lower than its precious month's numbers.

but the latest chapter will be included in vol 26, not 25.

Then the spoilers must did the job or i really don't know.


huh, maybe because the manga is the most popular after One Piece

May 11, 2018 7:53 PM by Shinobihost

Still waiting for Kingdom season 3.

May 11, 2018 6:06 PM by Vyzass

Overlord on top as deserved.
7 isekai in the top 20, should be more.

May 11, 2018 4:18 PM by ichii_1

Kaguya and Space Brothers in the top 20 make me so happy.

May 11, 2018 2:21 PM by MetaThPr4h
