Demon Slayer Manga Takes All But One Spot in Amazon's Weekly Top 20

The only other manga to hit the top 20 is Eiichiro Oda's One Piece

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba

 

Volumes of Koyoharu Gotouge's Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba manga are famously hard to come by in Japanese shops, leading to shortages and instances of shoplifting. The series is just as hot in the world of online shopping, as evidenced by the fact that it managed to take 19 of 20 spots in Amazon Japan's weekly manga ranking. 

 

Volume 19, which hits shelves in February, secured the number 1 spot on the ranking. Eiichiro Oda's One Piece volume 95 managed to take second place, but every other entry in the top 20 was completely dominated by Demon Slayer.
