Have you ever wondered what a ton of manga looks like? You know, as in 2,204.62 pounds (the “ton” that people pretty much everywhere outside the U.S. use) of manga. It looks like this, apparently.
Twitter user Pekin-san has a collection of Weekly Jump manga spanning 30 years.
Another Twitter user did the math, calculating that each issue weighs about 700 grams and that 49 issues are published each year. Over 30 years, that’s over 1,000 kilograms, or around 1.1 tons.
That’s a lot of manga! No, it’s a ton of manga.
