That list is made by me, adding up all the Oricon monthly rankings from December to date. According to my calculations and ONLY referenced the monthly Oricon charts the top 10 to date goes like this:

Top 10 (November 23 - 29 - 2020/ April 26 - May 02 - 2021)
  1. Kimetsu no Yaiba - 24'825.864
  2. Jujutsu Kaisen - 22'128.446
  3. Shingeki no Kyojin - 4'314.331
  4. Chainsaw Man - 3'949.585
  5. Tokyo 卍 Revengers - 2'982.686
  6. Yakusoku no Neverland - 2'929.146
  7. Boku no Hero Academia - 2'774.022
  8. Haikyu !! - 2'581.230
  9. Kimetsu no Yaiba Gaiden - +2'011.950 *
  10. Kingdom - +1'995.713
* I remember seeing that I already had 2.5 million copies but I reiterate that I only use Oricon's monthly rankings.

apparently Japanese youtubers roasting the new FT mobile game mostly cause hiro didn’t supervise it, lol pretty predictable. Still can’t see how people not tired of turn-based RPGs given how many there are from low-cut devs. The main mobile game seems successful enough though given hiro checks illustrations and it has stories that go along with canon. It’s even got a fan Twitter now for English translation

Wow revengers success went above & beyond my expectations lol. Crazy to think the live action may bring a bigger boost. Also good news for Fumetsu as the backlogs has been picking up nicely these past few days. We should start seeing all the volumes in the top 500 in a few days

Since Shihira has stopped with the collabs drawings, I've recollected all the phrases so far:

1. The must-see first in a series of collaborations is Attack on Titan! Look at how Shihira-sensei rendered the battle charge! You can expect the same energy in the battles in his new series. When it comes out, swing by and check it out!
2. The second collaboration is Fire Force! A composition filled with dynamic action! Feel the heat of Shinra's Corna! Shihira-sensei's new series will be filled with hot action too! Be sure to feel the heat when it comes out!
3. The third collaboration is Ace of the Diamond! Sweat overflows when facing an arch rival! And the intensity on Sawamura's face is so cool! The hero of Shihira-sensei's new series doesn't back down from a challenge either! Catch it soon!
4. The fourth collaboration is Hajime no Ippo! Fists collide with fists in amazing action! And you can really feel Ippo's determination to be the best! The hero of Shihira-sensei's new series has plenty of determination himself! It'll be a knockout, so don't miss it!
5. The fifth collaboration is A Couple of Cuckoos! Erika and Hiro are too cute for words! Done with a sexy touch. But they always look fresh in different ways. Shihira sensei's new series will have a super-cute heroine! Get an eyeful when it comes out!
6. With a new series coming in Weekly Shone nMagazine, Shihira-sensei did an EDENS ZERO illustration! He drew a familiar Shiki, who always trains hard with his friends and aims for new heights! Sensei's new series is recommended for EDENS ZERO fans for its themes of friendship!
7. Debuting in Weekly Shonen Magazine #24 is "LoveRock of Majestic War"and for it, Tatsuya Shihira-sensei did a Blue Lock illustration! Isagi's and Rin's momentum carry the ball forward! A masterpiece of composition! Expect upward momentum for the hero of Shihira-sensei's new series!
8. Seven Deadly Sins/Four Knights of the Apocalypse! Tatsuya Shihira-sensei debuts "LoveRock of Majestic War" in Weekly Shonen Magazine #24, and to celebrate, he drew Seven Deadly Sins and Four Knights of the Apocalypse! See how he rocks those colored pens!
9. This week's illustration is Tokyo Revengers! It's downtime for Takemichi, Mikey and Draken! They're not doing anything special, but you can still sense the strong bond between the three! Look for similar bonds of friendship in LoveRock of Majestic War, coming soon!
Chapter 1 of LoveRock of Majestic War tomorrow.


PS: LOVE or MAGIC is getting a special cover for volume 2, for 200 people in lottery

"Ken Wakui's Tokyo Revengers manga increased its circulation from about 8.5 million copies at the end of March to over 14.5 million copies now. The manga added about six million copies to meet a 670% sales jump since the television anime adaptation premiered one month ago on April 10. Kodansha reported last week that response to the manga since the anime started has been positive and bigger than it expected, with about 2.4 books sold per second. " Source Ann (today)

Obviously not an anime since its not getting cover so perhaps an exhibition/merch line?

I don't know how long Tokyo Revengers is gonna go on for in the manga but if kodansha was looking for a big time pillar to get their own M+ thing started than they've got it, seems like its blowing up outside of japan as well
