Kimi wa 008 Volume 21 leads COMIC ZIN’s chart for the week between September 12 and September 18 in its first 4 days, not its first appearance here as it has done so countless of times before for its past volumes. Nevertheless, the Manga is still having a hard time in breaching Oricon’s Top 30 charts since the Blog began tracking. The work is by Syun Matsuena, the author of Shijou Saikyou no Deshi Kenichi, which has been in serialization since February 2018. It can be found on Shogakukan’s Shounen Sunday with more information about it can be found here on its official web page whereas its Manga chapters can be read for free in Japanese right here. You can also learn more about the title by watching its TV commercial video that was released way back in March 2019 down below.
Zingnize Volume 8 is 2nd on the list in its first 6 days and its first appearance in a long time since Volume 6 made its debut back in August 2021. The series has so far not made any appearances on Oricon’s Top 30 charts since the Blog began tracking. The Manga first began its serialization and can be found in Tokuma Shoten’s Comic Ryu with further information available on its official web page here. You can also give its first Manga chapter a try in Japanese right here.

Then, we have Black Lagoon: Eda – Initial Stage Volume 1 making its 3-day debut at Number 3, a spin-off title to the main series, Black Lagoon, which focuses on Eda but is worked on by Hajime Yamamura, the author of titles such as: Kamisama Dolls and Kamunagara. More about the work can be learned on its official web page here whereas its first Manga chapter can be read for free in Japanese right here.

Note that, Tonikaku Kawaii Volume 21 which is placed 4th and Sousou no Frieren Volume 9’s Regular Edition at Number 8 have already been discussed in TSUTAYA’s chart for the same week here. That said, their appearances here would reassure a promising performance on Oricon’s chart for the same week bound for release this Friday.

The Manga has made several appearances before and has appeared once on Oricon Top 30 chart back in February this year for its 9th volume, which at the time sold 18,801 copies in its first 4 days. Unfortunately, it failed to chart for Volume 10. The series is by Masami Yuuki who is known for his work on Tetsuwan Birdy Decode and has been in serialization since January 2018. More information about the work can be obtained on its official web page here along with the first chapter of its Manga in Japanese, or you can check out its promotional video down below which was released back in October 2020 to promote the title.
At Number 6 is the pre-release of SCRIBBLES Volume 3 which is set for release on September 20.

The work is by Kaoru Mori, the author of Eikoku Koi Monogatari Emma and contains the collection of the author’s artworks and sketches. You can head over here for the preview of the volume.
