Kagurabachi Manga Hits 6 Million Views, Beats MamaYuyu and Two on Ice!
Takeru Hokazono's Kagurabachi manga has reached an impressive milestone, crossing 6 million views on Shueisha's MangaPlus platform. This achievement solidifies Kagurabachi's status as the next-gen battle shonen manga, outshining MamaYuyu (1 million views) and Two on Ice (410K).
Launched on September 17, 2023, as part of Shueisha's JUMP NEXTWAVE project, Kagurabachi quickly gained attention through memes. Despite the meme buzz fading, the manga's captivating storytelling and characters sustained interest, leading to a devoted fanbase.
Shueisha's MangaPlus platform, which digitally hosts Weekly Shonen Jump manga, reported Kagurabachi's exceptional 6 million views, showcasing its popularity. In comparison, MamaYuyu and Two on Ice lag with 1 million and 410k views, respectively.
Notably, Kagurabachi has surpassed not only these JUMP NEXTWAVE companions but also the well-established series, Nue's Exorcist (1.4 million views). With nearly 150k-200k views per chapter, the manga is in league with other popular series like Sakamoto Days.
Despite a slow start in Japan, Kagurabachi's momentum skyrocketed after chapter 8, particularly with the Sojo vs. Chihiro battle. Cinematic action, well-executed flashbacks, and an engaging storyline contributed to its fame.
Recent Weekly Shonen Jump ToC rankings positioned Kagurabachi above Mission: Yozakura Family, showcasing its growing popularity in Japan. While initially popular in the West due to memes, fans discovered the manga's depth, forming a dedicated international following.
Achieving 6 million views in just 16 chapters, Kagurabachi's success is commendable. Unlike Boruto Two Blue Vortex, which took five chapters to reach 5 million views, Kagurabachi's rapid ascent proves its potential as the next-gen battle shonen manga!
