Chainsaw Man, Demon Slayer remain in the Top Ten, Maus makes its return to the NY Times Best Sellers List for March 2022

Chainsaw Man Volume 9 Cover

PLEASE NOTE: The Rankings reflect sales for February 2022

The Best Sellers List for this month is similar to last month’s. By that, I’m referring to it being dominated by Shonen Manga, Tatsuki Fujimoto’s Chainsaw Man is still in the top ten for its second month. The newest volume, Volume Nine makes its debut on the list at No.4 while Volume One falls to No. 8 and Volume Two lands at No. 11.

Gege Akutami’s Jujutsu Kaisen and Koyoharu Gotouge’s Demon Slayer Kimetsu no Yaiba were two other Shonen Titles that have also been on a two-month streak, Jujutsu Kaisen’s latest volume, Volume 14 made its debut at No. 5. Demon Slayer, however, had two titles in the Top Ten, Volume One drops only one spot this time to No.9, while the spin-off title, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba: Stories of Water and Flame took a steep drop to No. 10.

Finally, Art Spiegelman’s Pulitzer Prize-Winning Graphic Novel, Maus makes its return to the Best Sellers List, The Story recounts the chilling experiences of the author’s father during the Holocaust, with Jews drawn as wide-eyed mice and Nazis as menacing cats. It was banned by a School Board in Tennessee in January due to its “unnecessary” profanity and mentions of murder, violence, and suicide. The Backlash spurred book sales and donations.  Maus I: A Survivor’s Tale: My Father Bleeds History took No. 3, while Maus II: A Survivor’s Tale: And Here My Troubles Began took No. 14.

With the climactic battle against the Gun Devil close, Aki may be wavering. Has he found something more important to him than revenge? And what is the true meaning behind the vision shown to him by the Future Devil?
