It's a bit of a shame that the anime that usually had a new season in Spring isn't coming out until October with results like this in the Manga sales. Especially seeing as a lot of these sales are the first several volumes, meaning they're probably new fans to the series. I hope the delay doesn't hurt the rising popularity of the show.

In short, i want the popularity to keep going up cause I need this show to start caring more about making good merchandise that I can buy! It was hard to even find anything when I went to Japan last Summer.

But they have a ton no? I feel like every week Atai Kuji adds new merch. Then it just got like 8 figures. I can't keep up.

if Promised Neverland is truly the next Shingeki like lots of readers say it is, then HeroAca may falter in 2019.

Eh, it’s a good series but I wouldn’t say it’s better. They both do their own things so there’s not really much room comparison besides the same setting they use.

There actually was very little. I have the nendoroid of deku and the statues of deku and bakugou, but aside from that even the official Jump store mainly had pins n such.
