  10. My Hero Academia Vol 4     ↵ 4

Tokyo Ghoul Vol 7 holds on to the top spot this week, but is closely followed by the debut of Kodansha’s Princess Jellyfish Vol 2. Hopefully Vol 2 will last longer than Vol1‘s one week. The only other debut title was also from Kodansha, with Fairy Tail Vol 54 just missing the top 5.  Returning to the list is My Hero Academia Vol 1 and 4, just sneaking in at #9 and 10. One-Punch Man Vol 1 is all alone this week, but with Vol 7 out this week, I’m sure there is going to be some changes at the top next week.

One-Punch Man Vol 7 does it again as it continues to hold the top spot for its official print debut. But the power of anime showing helps out two titles this week. Berserk Vol 1 moves up to the #2 spot, while Seven Seas’ orange: The Complete Collection Vol 1 makes a dramatic move up four places to  #6. There is only one debut title, also from Seven Seas, with its shojo hit Ancient Magus’ Bride Vol 5 coming in at #5. Haikyu! Vol 1, the long-awaited sports manga hits #1 among sports manga but falls another 2 spots in general manga to #9.
