Kōhei Horikoshi's My Hero Academia manga volume 14 ranked at #2 on NPD BookScan's Top 20 adult graphic novels list for August. All together, My Hero Academia and its My Hero Academia: Vigilantes spinoff held nine spots on the list.

This month's list featured 14 manga volumes including:

  • #2 — Kōhei Horikoshi's My Hero Academia volume 14
  • #3 — Kōhei Horikoshi's My Hero Academia volume 1
  • #5 — Kōhei Horikoshi's My Hero Academia volume 2
  • #6 — Kōhei Horikoshi's My Hero Academia volume 13
  • #8 — Kōhei Horikoshi's My Hero Academia volume 3
  • #9 — Hideyuki Furuhashi, Betten Court, and Kōhei Horikoshi's My Hero Academia: Vigilantes volume 1
  • #10 — Toyotarō and Akira Toriyama's Dragon Ball Super volume 3
  • #11 — Sui Ishida's Tokyo Ghoul:re volume 6
  • #12 — RWBY Official Manga Anthology volume 2
  • #13 — Eiichiro Oda's One Piece volume 87
  • #15 — ONE and Yuusuke Murata's One-Punch Man volume 14
  • #16 — Kōhei Horikoshi's My Hero Academia volume 4
  • #17 — Kōhei Horikoshi's My Hero Academia volume 12
  • #18 — Kōhei Horikoshi's My Hero Academia volume 5

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.
