AoT is still top 2 this can only mean most manga don't aell that well in US. probably 5k is enough for top 5 or top 10.

Wow! KH2 shot right up to number one this week! It usually just appears for one week in a low spot and then is gone the next so this is good to see. Good for Kingdom Hearts!

Not sure about USA, but globally, outside of Japan, some manga do sell well. For example, about 70 (seventy) million copies of Naruto manga were sold outside of Japan in fifteen years, a tie with Dragon Ball as the best internationally selling manga in history (this year Naruto will become sole leader in international sales).

The best selling manga are stuff like Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh in the low millions. I heard AOT has sold over 600,000 copies as of late 2014, but I'd estimate sales of up to 1 million copies.
