The official Twitter account for Ken Wakui‘s Tokyo Revengers manga announced on Wednesday that the manga has more than 25 million copies in circulation, thanks to new printings of all of its volumes. The account had announced earlier in June that the manga has more than 20 million copies in circulation. Wakui drew an illustration to commemorate that earlier milestone.
The manga had about 10 million copies at the end of March prior to the anime’s April premiere. The Kodansha sales department’s Takuya Watanabe stated that what supported the doubled circulation numbers was increased female readership, which he stated was due to the popularity of the handsome characters.
The marketing firm AMF reported on Wednesday that Tokyo Revengers was the #2 trending buzzword in the item category among Japanese female middle and high school students in the first half of 2021.
