Top Manga Sold in the US: August 2022

The Top 20 Manga sales chart for the month of August in the US presents a number of new releases with some big names such as Jujutsu Kaisen Volume 17, One Piece Volume 100, Dragon Ball Super Volume 16 and Bleach 20th Anniversary Edition Vol. 1, however, I will be talking more about them in the Publishers Weekly section below.

As for ICv2’s list for the month, note that it covers the period between July 31 and August 27, a week shorter than Publisher’s Weekly. At Number 11, we have Komi Can’t Communicate Volume 20 which made its debut between August 7 and August 13 to sell 7,845 copies sold in its first 5 days. On this chart, the volume would have most certainly sold beyond the 10,000 copies mark. Then, we have two other new releases belonging to Toilet-Bound Hanako-Kun Volume 15 and My Dress-Up Darling Volume 16. Both volumes were released on August 16 and did make it onto the chart between August 14 and August 20. During the week, My Dress-Up Darling Volume 6 sold more copies than Toilet-Bound Hanako-Kun Volume 15, though that situation seems to have been reversed here.

A million thanks to those amazing folks over at ICv2 and Publishers Weekly that we get to see these charts on a monthly basis so be sure to head over to their sites here (ICv2) and here (Publishers Weekly) and show them tonnes of love! All the data you find below is accessible via the two sites right here (ICv2) and here (Publishers Weekly).

For the month of August, Publishers Weekly tracks a week longer than that of ICv2. Here, Jujutsu Kaisen Volume 17 maintains as the best-selling volume for the month at 42,103 copies sold in its first 19 days, however when compared to Volume 11, which was also at 19 days of sales, the latest volume sold 16.04% fewer. That said, Volume 17 still sold 72.96%, 22.92%, and 41.16% more than Volumes 9, 10 and 12 which charted at much longer days of sales.

Then, we have Dragon Ball Super Volume 16 at Number 2 at 23,315 copies sold in its first 35 days. Its performance here is the highest among its latest three volumes, but that is due to it having longer days of sales when compared to Volume 14’s 26 days and Volume 15’s 28 days.

At Number 4 is One Piece Volume 100 at 22,853 copies sold in its first 35 days. The volume initially came out stronger than Dragon Ball Super Volume 16 back in its first 5 days but was overtaken by it by a small margin. Toilet-Bound Hanako-Kun Volume 14 is 6th on the list at 20,857 copies sold while Bleach 20th Anniversary Edition Volume 1 takes the 8th spot at 19,350 copies sold, both in their first 35 days as well.
