Manga Takes Over U.S. Graphic Novels Bookscan Chart with MHA at No. 1 for April

My Hero Academia Vol. 27 Cover

This month in the NPD Bookscan Chart for Graphic Novels in April, Manga made a Clean Sweep. Last month, it was Tatsuki Fujimoto’s Chainsaw Man Volume One taking the No. 1 Spot in a rare moment by picking up the Number One spot without the help of a Streaming Anime to help Support it. It will be getting an Anime Adaption, along with the second part of the Manga will be focusing on Denji entering a new part in his life, the Gakkō-hen (School Arc) according to the Jump Festa Presentation that happened in December 2020 but no release date has been announced.

Now things have changed, Kohei Horikoshi’s My Hero Academia has taken the Number One Spot with Volume Twenty-Seven, the Manga that leads into the fight between the Heroes and the Paranormal Liberation Front. But one thing that is clear for this Month’s Bookscan is that while there are several My Hero Academia Manga Volumes on the chart but it was the first volume that was nowhere to be seen! Volume One has been making its appearance on the chart for months and now it is Missing In Action.

One of the titles that took over the chart this month was Koyoharu Gotouge’s Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba that took over the Bookscan Chart, it was the hype for the Mugen Train U.S. Premiere that helped with the sales, in which the premiere was very successful and became the first anime film in Decades to hit No. 1 in the U.S. Box Office!

The confrontation between the heroes and the villains of the Paranormal Liberation Front is about to kick off! With so much at stake, even the students of U.A. have joined the heroes to help in the coming battles. Within the PLF, Hawks continues to play a dangerous game as a double agent, but the villains have fearsome resources of their own, including whatever lurks in the doctor’s lab. Plus, with every moment that passes, Tomura Shigaraki comes closer to his ultimate form… When everything goes down, there won’t be any going back!
