Chainsaw Man seems to be more popular in the West than in Japan because’ we’ve seen the IP appear on the New York Times’ Graphic Novel & Manga Bestseller list many times. It ranked #1 in November 2023, and it’s showing up once again in January 2024, albeit after a bit of scrolling.

Chainsaw Man Volume 13 ranks #5 in the list, while My Hero Academia Volume 36, being the only other manga, ranks outside the top 10 bestsellers.

The entire list of New York Times’ Graphic Novel & Manga Bestsellers for January 2024 is as follows:

Last month had Jujutsu Kaisen, One Piece ranking higher than Chainsaw Man volume 12, and even Spy X Family around the bottom. But sadly, only two Japanese comics adorned the January 2024 list.
