While the manga industry often gives North American comic companies a hard time, a recent report shows the biggest manga series in the West for fall and winter last year, and some picks on the top ten list would certainly surprise. you.

According to the ICv2 website, the ten best-selling manga from September to December last year read as follows:

In diagnosing these rankings, there are several surprises for fans that can be attributed to a number of factors. Berserk, for example, most likely ranks so high due to the tragic passing of manga creator Kentaro Miura, with many readers perhaps looking to read the story of Guts, Griffith, Casca and the Falcon Band. Junji Ito’s horror stories may not all be made into anime, but it’s clear the master of horror has struck a chord with western manga readers, as fans prepare to the arrival of the animated adaptation of Uzumakiwhich will be released on Adult Swim later this year.

In the West, anime has become such a popular item that many streaming services are trying to take over the market when it comes to the medium. While Crunchyroll and Funimation recently announced their merger, Netflix continues to claim exclusives such as Beastars and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure while HBO Max has the majority of Studio Ghibli’s library. Needless to say, it looks like this anime war isn’t slowing down anytime soon as the medium becomes more popular in the West.
