My Hero Academia Ranks #4 on U.S. Monthly Bookscan May List
posted on by Karen Ressler
Kohei Horikoshi's My Hero Academia volume 12 ranked at #4 on NPD BookScan's Top 20 adult graphic novels list for May. The volume debuted at #1 the month before.
This month's list featured 10 manga volumes including:
- #5 — Kohei Horikoshi's My Hero Academia volume 1
- #6 — RWBY: Official Manga Anthology
- #8 — Akira Himekawa's The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess volume 3
- #9 — Eiichiro Oda's One Piece volume 86
- #10 — Sui Ishida's Tokyo Ghoul:re volume 4
- #11 — Kohei Horikoshi's My Hero Academia volume 2
- #12 — Kohei Horikoshi's My Hero Academia volume 11
- #15 — Sui Ishida's Tokyo Ghoul volume 1
- #16 — Kohei Horikoshi's My Hero Academia volume 3
The BookScan rankings represent sales at Barnes & Noble and other book chains, independent bookshops, and online purchases — but not sales at comic book stores, Walmart.com, and some other venues.
NPD BookScan announced in September it plans to add in sales numbers from comic book stores in partnership with Diamond Comics and indie retailers in the coming year, but hasn't yet revealed a specific date the change will take place.
