No surprise that Viz Media’s One-Punch Man Vol 1 keeps the top spot for a second week in a row, but new releases from Kodansha and Seven Seas still shake things up. Kodansha gets two titles to debut, with Noragami Vol 16 and Fairy Tail Zero Vol 1 charting. Seven Seas only have one debut, Monster Musume: I Heart Monster Girls Vol 2, but Orange: The Complete Collection shows its got some staying power as Vol 2 moves up to #2, while Vol 1‘s second week is spent falling 3 to #9. Viz Media’s new sports title, Haikyu!! Vol 1,  spikes up the list another two spots to just reach the top five.

Berserk falls off the list completely, but Viz and Kodansha have plenty of titles to fill their void. Attack on Titan returns with its newest volume 19 as well as its special edition, which includes the DVD of the second half of the animated special No Regrets. From Viz there are the usual shonen titles My Hero Academia Vol 5, One Piece Vol 79, and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 2: Battle Tendency Vol 4, but something we haven’t seem from them in a while is a shojo. Yona of the Dawn Vol 1 which comes out this week debuts at #8. Hopefully it will stick around for a while. The sausage party gets tedious after a while.
