May 17, 2024 09:14 PM IST

Jujutsu Kaisen Vol 22 ranked at #2 Top 15 Best Sellers May 2024 index. Robert Kirkman's Invincible Compendium also made the list.

Even the Guinness World Records stats have bowed down to the glorious supremacy of Gege Akutami's masterclass supernatural saga Jujutsu Kaisen, proving its relevance in modern pop culture. In April, GWR officially coined JJK the “world's most in-demand animated TV show,” a title previously held by the Attack on Titan series since 2020.

Jujutsu Kaisen Volume 22 ranked #2, Spy X Family Volume 11 at #13 and Invincible Compendium One at #6 on the May 2024 New York Times Bestselling list for Graphic Novels and Manga.

The show's popularity also pulled through earlier this month when Jujutsu Kaisen gained a top-ranking spot on Netflix's Global Top 10 TV (non-English) chart. Holding the 9th rank, JJK attracted 1 million views from May 6-12, 2024. Topping that position on a different scale, the anime's source text took precedence on the New York Times Bestsellers list on the Graphic Books and Manga index in May 2024.

May 2024: Bestselling Manga on the NY Times list

Tatsuya Endo's Spy X Family Vol 11 maintained its position as one of the month's bestsellers after ranking at #7. However, the manga slipped a few ranks in May and occupied the 13th spot.

Reinstating its reign on the bestsellers chart, Kentaro Miura's Berserk Deluxe Vol 1 re-entered at #8 after making a wave in March 2024 at the 11th spot. NY Times explains its plot: “A swordsman teams up with the leader of a mercenary band to fight evil forces; collects the first three issues of the manga series.”

Popular action-packed graphic novels on the list

Although not a manga, Robert Kirkman's collaboration with several illustrators gave birth to the highly acclaimed graphic novel series Invincible. Subsequently, it inspired one of the best contemporary superhero sagas for TV, raising the stakes with its animated vision, willing to go the extra mile to accurately portray the gruesome and gritty lives of the beloved characters.

Delving into the hard facts and complexities of being a hero, both volumes (1 and 2) of the Invincible Compendium series made it to the New York Times Bestselling list on the Graphic Books and Manga index. While Volume 1 stood at #6, the second volume claimed 14th.

NY Times' storyline description reads, “A lone Turtle goes on a mission to get justice for his family in a post-apocalyptic New York.”
