Another title that made its debut in February’s Top 20 was Natsuki Kizu’s Boys Love Manga Given Vol 5 at No. 14. Another good title that has gotten popular and generated good buzz was the Action Comedy, Spy x Family, written and illustrated by Tatsuya Endo it tells about a Spy who has to “Build a Family” to execute a mission but what he doesn’t realize about the Fake Marriage was that the daughter he adopted and the woman he agrees to be in a Fake Marriage with is a mind reader and assassin, taking Number 20.
