In January 2022, a total of 10 out of 15 spots was occupied by manga, with Tatsuki Fujimoto‘s Chainsaw Man placing itself in four spots alone.

In December 2021, almost half the chart was taken up by two series: five volumes of Jujutsu Kaisen and four volumes of Chainsaw Man.

According to NPD BookScan, manga sales made up over 76% of sales by volume of the overall comics and graphic novel category in the United States in 2021.

Experts say this was the direct result of the boom in anime, with pandemic-stricken readers going into a manga buying spree. The anime effect was clearly visible, as the top manga series by sales were closely linked to the most popular anime series on OTT platforms like Hulu, Netflix, and Crunchyroll.
