JUJUTSU KAISEN, VOL. 1 by Gege Akutami

Seeing the sleeping giant of a series Kaiju No.8 rank so highly before its much anticipated anime adaptation by Production I.G is great news!

The effects of an anime adaptation can have a life changing effect on a manga, as seen with Jujutsu Kaisen. The global phenomenon has begun airing its iconic Shibuya Incident Arc, evidently resulting in many new fans being drawn to the manga with Vol 1 ranking so high!

However, that didn’t prove to be the case for Chainsaw Man unfortunately.
