The first volume of Hajime Isayama's Attack on Titan ranked #5 on Nielsen BookScan's list of top 20 graphic novel sales in March, followed by volume 2 at #7, volume 3 at #15, and volume 11 at #19.
Additionally, volume 64 of Masashi Kishimoto's Naruto ranked at #8, volume 11 of Kazue Kato's Blue Exorcist ranked at #17, volume 18 of Kanoko Sakurakouji's Black Bird ranked at #18, and volume 70 of Eiichiro Oda's One Piece ranked at #20.
In January, Attack on Titan volume 1 at ranked at #3 and Attack on Titan volume 2 ranked at #8.
The BookScan rankings represent sales at Barnes & Noble and other book chains, independent bookshops, and online purchases — but not sales at comic book stores, Amazon, Walmart.com, and some other venues.
Update: As of last year, Nielsen BookScan sales figures include physical Walmart stores, but not Walmart.com. Thanks, Apterous, Twage, and Spotlesseden.
