Volume 21 hits the number two spot for the month of September
The graphic novel numbers are in for the month of September, and once again Kohei Horikoshi's My Hero Academia dominates the NPD Bookscan Top 20. Including volume 21 taking the #2 spot, there are a total of six MHA volumes in the top 20 alone, and that's not all the manga that made it in the latest roundup.
Other titles included in the top 20 are Akira Toriyama and Toyotaro's Dragon Ball Super, Junji Ito's Uzumaki, Koyoharu Gotouge's Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, Sankichi Hinodeya's Splatoon, and Kousuke Oono's The Way of the Househusband.

As Brigid Alverson notes over at ICv2, My Hero Academia vol. 21 just came out on October 1, so its number two spot only represents four days of sales. Also, it should come as no surprise at this point, but this month all of the manga here comes from Viz Media.
