COMIC ZIN’s chart for the week between August 8 and August 14 starts off with the 7th volume of Boku no Kokoro no Yabai Yatsu in its first week, an Akita Shoten title that is currently being serialized in its Manga Cross magazine. This is not the first time the work by Norio Sakurai has appeared on the chart as it has done so a multitude of times for COMIC ZIN and even appeared on Oricon’s charts twice. Volume 3’s Special Edition saw a great 57,105 copies sold back in June 2020 in its first week whereas Volume 4 was featured on the chart between February 8 and February 14 last year at 55,967 copies sold in its first week as well. Unfortunately, the subsequent volume failed to find a spot on Oricon Top 30 henceforth. With more than 2.3 million copies in circulation including digital according to its banner (picture below), some of its Manga chapters can be read for free in Japanese right here, but of course, the Manga is also available officially in English, published by Seven Seas. In August last year, it was announced to be receiving an Anime adaptation in 2023 (Source: ANN).

The series has appeared numerous times before on COMIC ZIN’s charts, however it has not had much luck on Oricon’s Top 30 list.
