Mirroring the viral success of My Dress-Up Darling earlier this year and others before it, Tatsuya Endo’s already bestselling SPY x FAMILY manga has earned a significant boom in the number of copies out in the world, thanks to its stellar anime adaptation.
Shueisha manga editor Shihei Lin reported that the series recently exceeded 21 million copies in circulation (not necessarily sold) as well as 400 million views online, as SPY x FAMILY is serialized in online magazine Shonen Jump+.

The total number of copies in circulation before the anime’s premiere on April 9 was 12.5 million copies, which means that a whopping 8.5 million copies (1.68 times the amount!) have been added in the mere two months since.
