Although the works of Akira Toriyama and Eiichiro Oda (“Dragon Ball” and “One Piece”, respectively) are always at the top of the most popular and read on the official website of Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, Mangaplus, this week there was an unexpected surprise. It turns out that another shonen managed to rise and take first place.
It is the well-known manga by Tatsuki Fujimoto, “Chainsaw Man”, which surprisingly appears in the first position of the MangaPlus page.
This is due to the fact that the manga recently returned from its break and began with its second part, introducing new protagonists and other new features. How long will “Chainsaw Man” be able to hold onto the top spot?
