March 2020 Manga Sales According to NPD BookScan data (March 1, 2020 to April 4, 2020), for US Only

I was a bit hesitant to have this up at first as Publishers Weekly have stopped updating their site with the following comment, “As of 3/28/2020, due to extreme sales volatility caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, we are temporarily omitting unit sales for individual titles from the lists.” (source: Comics) As such, I am unable to obtain the total units sold monthly. It did not sit well with me to leave spaces here and there for those of you who would like to see the list, therefore I decided to publish the chart excluding the number of units.

Besides, the top 20 chart is all thanks to ICv2, and you can find the data for March here. Be sure to head over to their site too! The top 20 Manga sold in the US according to NPD BookScan is as follows:

The list is still 99% dominated by Viz Media with only Berserk belonging to a different publisher, Dark Horse Comics. Boku no Hero Academia is as heavily present in the chart as previous months, but this time Kimetsu no Yaiba is at the top of the list.
