Chainsaw Man, My Hero Academia, and More Take Over November’s NY Times Best Seller List


PLEASE NOTE: The Rankings Reflect Sales For October 2022

Fall is finally here, and the newest update for the New York Times Best Sellers List for Manga and Graphic Novels is here!

This month is slightly different. Yes, it is dominated by Shonen-themed manga, but it is following a similar pattern to October’s Best Seller List, and that’s Chainsaw Man Fever. Like Spy X Family, Chainsaw Man’s Anime series made its debut in October, and the first four volumes have taken up spots in the top fourteen. It is bringing in new readers and increasing back-volume sales. My Hero Academia is back in the top five, and Kaiju No 8, and Spy X Family are in the Top Ten.


Meanwhile, the webcomic series Lore Olympus and Heart Stopper are continuing their impressive streaks. Each title has made appearances on the Best Seller Chart for the past several months (and most recently, Lore Olympus took the top spot in October’s NPD Book Scan Chart).
