My Hero Academia Manga Tops U.S. Monthly Bookscan August List

Kōhei Horikoshi’s My Hero Academia manga quantity 20 topped NPD BookScan’s Top 20 adult picture books list for August.

As usual, manga dominates the list of the Top 20 Adult Graphic Novels from the publication station, dependent on NPD BookScan statistics for August (8/4/19-8/ / 31/19) supplied to ICv2. However, this month’s manga combination differs in the lineup in recent months.

There are just six volumes of My Hero Academia (such as the very first volume of this gag spinoff My Hero Academia Smash! ) about the graph, but it is still dominated by manga, and most importantly, by VIZ Media manga, together with 12 of the top 20 titles coming from this publication. What is more, it seems like they’ve yet another hot name, with quantity 1 of Komi Can’t Communicate charting to the next month in a row (albeit in final place) whereas the next quantity debuts at number 9. Also on the graph are brand new volumes of several long-running VIZ show and a single name, the most recent volume of Strike Titan, from Kodansha Comics.
