So, Day 1 Shoseki numbers:

Act-Age: 30
I'm From Japan: 110
David: 66
Chainsaw Man: 21
Ne0lation: 140
Hell Warden Higuma: 78
The Last Saiyuki: 150
Yui Kamio: 67
Samurai 8 V1: 30
Samurai 8 V2: 40
Double Taisei: 150
Beast Children: 161
Tokyo Shinobi Squad: 86
Mission: Yozakura Family: 40
Mitama Secureity: 51
It's worth noting that Yozakura and Mitama also had the unusual occurrence of premiering after Kimetsu's entire backlog was taking up 17-18 slots that the other series didn't have to attempt to compete with. If I was trying to be fair and exclude this outlier event, I'd say Yozakura probably would've wound up between Chainsawman and Act-Age, while Mitama likely would've been between Samurai 8 volumes 1 and 2.

Well, Samurai 8 also had to compete with the entire backlog, it had 12 of 17 volumes above vol 1 and other 4 above vol 2 on day 1, so if you do the same with S8, was supposed to be higher on Shoseki.

Ah I see. I couldn't remember off the top of my head when exactly the Kimetsu boost started and thought Samurai 8 came out before then. When did the Kimetsu boost happen again? It feels like it's been going on for quite some time, longer than I was initially thinking

I can confirm the Kimetsu-plosion was in October, around the time S8 dropped.

Vigilantes -My Hero Academia Illegals- #9
Plus, the subtle foreshadowing in that cover....
Shirakumo means "white cloud". Kurogiri means "black mist".
That foreshadowing is fucking genius, and this is now my favorite Vigilantes cover. I REALLY hope that they adapt part of this into the anime as it'll definitely help with context.

Again, I feel like the duo behind Vigilante should move away from the series and start their own series without a connection to an existing universe

I like Vigilante just fine but I think the connection to MHA is the worse thing about the series

anyway...speaking of sales, pretty strong week to Dr Stone, but it's 6 days worth right? let's see how it holds up, curious to see where it goes

Well, good thing is, Vigilantes is nearing the endgame now. Hopefully, the duo can take this experience and turn it into a worthwhile career.

I'm just curious as to why Vigilantes isn't on Manga+. One Punch Man I can understand since I think it's on Young Jump's site rather than WSJ, Jump SQ, or Jump+, but Vigilantes is a Jump+ manga.

I used to read it every week but lost track of it last year because Viz stopped supporting their app on Kindle, so I had to switch to Manga+ which still works.

Yeah, makes zero sense, they could also be releasing the Team Up Mission spinoff from Saikyo Jump that looks quite interesting but they aren't too, they didn't even bothered to pick Quartet Knight (BC spinoff) that no scanlator were translating at the time, sometimes they do miss a lot of potential stuff but pick things like Hina Change or Dear Sa-chan

Iwamoto published in November 2018 a one shot in JumpSQ.Rise called "Eiru ga Matte Iru", for some reason this isnt listed in most of Database sites despite the entire magazine's issue raw being available to download. The color page:

Why? Its always affected the main manga. Since the beginning. Is this a problem you have always had it just a problem now?

So I'm not allowed to have an opinion on One Piece other than putting it on a pedestal?
There is a big difference between "I don't care about One Piece characters" and "People today don't like One Piece characters" which is not an opinion but a factually wrong biased statement. Straw Hats still clearly some of the most popular manga characters and even when its nearly 100 volumes long the manga still sells absurdly high numbers with nothing else other than Kimetsu comparing so obviously people still care
