Top 100 Manga for 2018

VIZ Media -- My Hero Academia Volume 1To help educators and librarians to be informed about what their students and patrons are buying from their local comic shops, we present the Top 100 Best-Selling Manga for 2018. Each month, Diamond Comic Distributors announces its best-selling graphic novels and manga tiles based on Total Unit Sales to comic book specialty shops.

VIZ Media took all of the top ten spots on 2018's best-selling manga charts, and the first volume of Kouhei Horikoshi's My Hero Academia, an immensely popular manga/anime franchise about a middle school student and a school for super-heroes, was the year's best-selling manga title.

Other titles from VIZ Media that charted in the top ten include One-Punch Man Volume 1 at #2, My Hero Academia Volume 2 at #3, Dragon Ball Super Volume 1 at #4, and Tokyo Ghoul Volume 1 at #5.

DC Entertainment's Batman and the Justice League Volume 1 by Shiori Teshirogi was their top-selling manga at #18.

Kentaro Miura's Berserk Volume 1 was Dark Horse Comics' best-selling manga title of 2018 at #20.

Kodansha Comics' perennial best-seller Attack on Titan Volume 1 ranked #37 for the year.

How does Diamond calculate the charts? It all starts at the comic book shop.

Data for Diamond’s sales charts — which includes the monthly market shares and all top product charts — are compiled by Diamond Comic Distributors from sales made to thousands of comic book specialty shops located in North America and around the world.  Additional sales made to online merchants and other specialty stores may be included as well.

Unit and dollar market shares are calculated based upon orders for comic books, graphic novels, and magazines invoiced and shipped to Diamond customers during any given month, which comprises pre-orders, advance reorders, and reorders, minus any copies that are received back from a title marked as returnable. Please note that comics marked with an asterisk (*) have had their reported quantities reduced due to retailer returnability, and thus may rank lower on the charts than their actual sales would reflect.

About the Diamond Sales Index: The Sales Index of selected monthly Best Seller Charts is presented as a comparative tool for retailers and publishers. It presents Diamond’s monthly sales for individual titles in relation to Diamond’s total sales for the issue of DC Comics' monthly Batman comic book. (Batman is used as the control title — with a value of 100 — because sales of Batman usually remain relatively stable.) This allows for easy comparison to other titles and helps retailers gauge their orders for all other titles. This formula is only a guide, other factors may impact a titles’ ability to sell in certain locations and clientele.
