Manga has 8 times more copies in circulation compared to 1 year ago

Kodansha confirmed on Sunday that Ken Wakui's Tokyo Revengers manga has more than 40 million copies in circulation. The manga has eight times more copies in circulation compared to a year ago.

The manga had 5 million copies in circulation in September 2020, about 8 million copies in February 2020, about 10 million copies at the end of March 2021, over 14.5 million copies in May 2021, more than 25 million copies in June 2021, and more than 32 million copies in circulation in July 2021.

Wakui launched the manga in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine in March 2017, and Kodansha published the manga's 24th compiled book volume on September 17.

Kodansha Comics is publishing the manga digitally in English, and it describes the story:

Watching the news, Takemichi Hanagaki learns that his girlfriend from way back in middle school, Hinata Tachibana, has died. The only girlfriend he ever had was just killed by a villainous group known as the Tokyo Manji Gang. He lives in a crappy apartment with thin walls, and his six-years-younger boss treats him like an idiot. Plus, he's a complete and total virgin … At the height of his rock-bottom life, he suddenly time-leaps twelve years back to his middle school days!! To save Hinata, and change the life he spent running away, hopeless part-timer Takemichi must aim for the top of Kanto's most sinister delinquent gang!!

A television anime adaptation debuted on the MBS channel on April 10. Crunchyroll is streaming the anime as it airs in Japan. Warner Bros. Japan produced a live-action film of the manga, which opened on July 9.

Update: The numbers above are not sales statistics. The manga has released 30 million more copies since the anime premiered in April, but all 30 million copies have not yet sold.
