Rouk, about the French GFK data, and athan0r's The first volume sales for One Piece match GfK's data. but the others don't. How come Dragon Ball sold 1.9 million but ranks below Spy, which sold 1.6 million? Death Note also jumped by over a million copies, but GfK doesn't seem to reflect that.

By cross-referencing both datasets, there are at least 10 series that sold over 1 million in 2022. Maybe up to 11 or 12 (One Punch Man).

01.One Piece 6.5 million
02.Naruto ~3.1m
03.Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba
04.My Hero Academia
05.Spy x Family ~1.6m
06.Dragon Ball ~1.9m
07.Jujutsu Kaisen
08. Berserk ~1.5m
09.Attack on Titan
10. Tokyo Revengers ~1.3m
11. Fairy Tail (85% of Attack on titan. So ~1.1 million?)
12. One-Punch Man
13. Kaiju No. 8 (maximum is 840k but likely below)

-Gfk is a third party tracker, there is a gap between what they report and actual sell-through since they extrapolate data based on a select number of retailers (but they are accurate, obviously, otherwise they wouldn't be so acclaimed). In particular, Gfk doesn't track Corsica, oversea territories, Belgium or Switzerland, but some pubs may report the latter two as being part of "French sales"
-The numbers Valentin reported for Glénat are not even sell-through, they are sell-in ("mise en place") ie. what publishers sent to retailers, not taking into account what's left on the shelves. And for Delcourt, for example, the numbers were the direct data the pub has (ie. sell-in minus what has been sent back to them. But there is still some stock on the shelves)

Frieren anime got its first teaser, key visuals and details of the staff
Director is Keiichiro Saito, the same as Bocchi the Rock, studio is Madhouse, music by Evan Call (Violet evergarden)
Release date is 2023, so we are probably looking at a fall release.
Staff is stacked and if they manage to nail it, it might become one of the top 3 best-selling series for 2024 (whether it reaches top spot will depend on where it's streamed and the JJK S2 boost)

Know nothing about this but I really enjoyed Bocchi and the art style looks quite nice. Will keep an eye on this.

Any estimate about numbers and how much they cover of the market? Market size and increase/decrease?

No manga breakdown, however comics grew 15.9% in the first 10 months of 2022 (73.1M euros to 84.7), so manga should be along those lines - likely better. Books as a whole were down 2%.

Hard to say about copies since numbers are quite rare (I've only ever seen a couple first weeks for top sellers), but it's a pretty leggy market. The first print of DS is the highest in the market at 200k, so go from there I suppose.

Imo, studio bind would have been the best option for its adaptation.
 
did not know about this before this post.
Now I discover mangas thanks to this Thread. x)
Damn, really? You’re in for a real treat, then. This thing has made a name for itself in the manga circles I frequent, in addition to making its mark in Japan too.

Very glad that it’s doing well and I look forward to the anime adaptation in 2024. (Hopefully.)

jjk will still end up behind last volume surely (as december release drugs up w3/w4 and I don't think a 30k fw increase - perhaps from poll - is enough to make up for it) but it atleast staunched the bleeding a bit so it's definitely a win overall

Yeah black clover drop is very huge
I love black clover but I have to admit tabata is very lucky that shueisha still didn't cancel his manga

Did One Piece only have 1 day of pre sales?
3 days sells I think

BC drop is quite big yeah. Kaiju's is dreadful, at this rate the manga might be struggling for 250k fm by the time the anime comes out.

Kaiju's manga is going so bad that even I drop, so I am not that surprised
 
Granted last volume came out november, and as far as I can remember that was a pretty frontloaded month, so it should recover a decent bit on week2, but even so I don't think this volume will top out at much more than 350k at best, another bad drop in a long string for the series at this point.

The same goes for bc though, and this fw drop being less dramatic, the volume will probably be ok in the end, settling on a minor drop. Definitely a bit of a rushed judgement on my side here.

20./00. The Ichinose Family's Deadly Sins #1 {2023.03.03} - 20,223 / NEW

A good first result for Ichinose. Will probably be a SJ mainstay if it continues to grow
Meanwhile Cipher academy seems to have started at below 6k, so unless Shueisha gives it more time due to the author, It's probably will die after TDBS and Ginka&Gluna
 
Looking across the board, the physical manga market seems to be in a decline. I can't think of any series that is >10 volumes right now and increasing in sales besides Blue Lock. Also, no series has come out the past 2 years swinging like Kaiju no 8, Frieren, SxF, or even Dandadan. But even Dandadan has had very little growth since volume 1.

For your first point, I can think of Do Not Say Mystery, World Trigger, Aoashi, Welcome to Demon-School! Iruma-kun, and there are probably more.

For your second point, there are decently popular series that started around 2 years ago or later : Chiikawa Nanka Chiisakute Kawaii Yatsu, Yomi no Tsugai, Super no Ura de Yani Suu Hanashi, Oni no Hanayome, Ruri Dragon.

And all of these sell more than Dandadan ever did.

But yes, your general point does stand. The physical manga market is undoubtedly declining in Japan.

Good find!
Let me clear some things up.

Top 7 Highest Growing Manga Licenses of 2022 in the US
RANK./ TITLE - ABSOLUTE REVENUE GAIN (2022 REVENUE TOTAL / YEAR-ON-YEAR GROWTH)

01./ Berserk - +14 million $ (31.7 million $ total / +84%)
02./ Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba - +12 million $ (33.2 million $ total / +54%)
03./ Chainsaw Man - +10.7 million $ (15.4 million $ total / +228%)
04./ Spy x Family - +7.7 million $ (9.9 million $ total / +351%)
05./ Jujutsu Kaisen - +5.2 million $ (14.4 million $ total / +56%)
06./ One Piece - +3.8 million $ (9.9 million $ total / +62%)
07./ Dragon Ball - +3.4 million $ (8.8 million $ total / +62%)

Basically, this list ranks the top licences in absolute MSRP dollar growth. This means that a licence might have had an insane growth compared to 2022 and still rank low, because the actual dollar gain is low (see: The Sandman, which only gained +3.3 million $ with that +3303% growth). This also means that a licence might have an MSRP$ total a lot higher than anything in this list and not chart because it didn't grow enough/was flat/decreased compared to 2021.
This should explain some missing licences such as My Hero Academia, who should still be a top-seller, but likely decreased compared to 2021.

The last license in this list, "The Walt Disney Company" gained about +2 million $ compared to 2021.
This means that not a single manga series, aside from these 7, gained 2M$ in the US in 2022 compared to 2021.
 
"The 100 Girlfriends Who Really, Really, Really, Really, Really Love You" has reached 1.300.000 copies in circulation. It is also receiving an anime by Biburi Studio (The Quintessential Quintuplets season 2) releasing this year

Are we sure there are no free digital versions(if there is one) added or something like 1 digital chapter sale = 1 copy?
I've been reading the manga but I didn't realize it was this popular if it's a real number

Is this the result of publishers inflating the numbers that you guys were talking about? Or is there some merit to these numbers?
