The release of Viz Media’s shonen titles decimated the list as expected. One-Punch Man Vol 7 takes its place at the top and is closely followed by the new sports Volleyball manga Haikyu!! Vol 1. Bleach, which is ending very soon in Japan gets its newest, Vol 67, in the top five, while Nisekoi Vol 16 is lowest debut title, coming in at #7. The only non-Viz debut is Seven Seas’ shojo The Ancient Magus’ Bride Vol 5. The rest of the list is filled with One-Punch Man and Tokyo Ghoul volumes, with Tokyo Ghoul dominating 2-to-1. We’ll see if and how that changes next week now that the One-Punch Man anime is showing on Cartoon Network.

One-Punch Man Vol 7 continues to hold the top spot, with Berserk Vol 1  holding for a second week at #2. The preorder of One-Punch Man Vol 8 returns along with Vol 1 which makes its return for its 44th week on the list. Pokemon Adventures Red & Blue Box Set also returns, perhaps as research for players of the Pokemon Go! mobile game which has become an overnight sensation. Seven Seas’ The Ancient Magus’ Bride Vol 5 just holds on, falling 4 to #9, while Dark Horse’s Berserk Vol 3 falls the most, 6 spots, but just holds on to the list at #10.
