9Prison SchoolAkira HiramotoKodansha4,058,119
10Tokyo Ghoul:reSui IshidaShueisha3,758,541

If you wondering, where is One Punch Man Manga? Saitama is on eleven position. So why the popularity of anime cannot help the manga sales like others anime adaptation that can boost their manga sales (Prison School, The Seven Deadly Sins, Attack on Titan) ?
The anime is airing October 2015, while the above list best selling only cover sales from November 17, 2014 to November 22, 2015. So I think, just in a month the airing of anime tv series cannot make big impact to manga sales in 2015. I predict One Punch Man manga will get huge sales in 2016.
