After a month at the top, Legend of Zelda A Link to the Past finally gets knocked down falling the furthest, eight spots. It’s replaced by everyone’s favorite ninja, Naruto, as Vol 70 debuts at the top. Maybe I spoke a little too soon last week. He’s joined by fellow Shonen Jump titles Assassination Classroom Vol 4 and Food Wars Vol 6. the only other debut title this week is from Kodansha Comics with Fairy Tail Vol 48 coming in at #3. Attack on Titan Vol 1 begins its second century on the list with a short fall, but not for long.

There’s just a slight switch around in the top three titles this week. Tokyo Ghoul‘s Vol 1 print debut is this next week, and the last-minute preorders are jumping on board, pushing it back to the top spot. Legend of Zelda A Link to the Past lurks just behind, waiting for its chance to take back the top spot, while Naruto Vol 69 falls back to #3. The Legend of Zelda Box Set returns as does several other titles including Noragami Vol 1, Seraph of the End Vol 1 and Sword Art Online Aincrad Novel Vol 2. The Tokyo Ghoul Vol 2 preorder also makes a return, even though it would be seeing a print release until August. Maybe readers are adding Vol 2 to their Vol 1 orders.
