Congrats to JK on being the top selling manga by series. Also to TR. SnK appears as expected.

Is this the first time One Piece isn't in the top 5 (by series)?

MHA actually had its best year last year, and remains the most popular manga being sold i the USA. I guess it's never been a peak performer in Japan even with its popularity. JJK and Tokyo Revengers just had phenomenal years this year, not even accounting for Demon Slayer's jaw-dropping numbers they pulled last year.

I'm not gonna say I'm surprised by these news because I know how HUGE these franchises are. But having read most of them, it does surprise me the insane level of success Jujutsu Kaisen has. I personally find it an enjoyable read but quite mediocre in art & plot development. I will give it this: unlike Demon Slayer, it's VERY unpredictable and does not follow some of the shonen tropes. What both of them have in common is having amazing anime adaptations that elevate the source material with a considerable budget and beautiful visuals.

I haven't read the SnK manga but I quite enjoyed the anime series so far. I've heard the ending is very polarizing so hopefully the final season of the anime is still good.
