Kekkon suru tte, Hontou desu ka tops COMIC ZIN’s weekly chart for the week between July 11 and July 17 with its 7th volume in its first 6 days, not the series’ first appearance on the chart as it has done so a number of times before. However, the work by Tamiki Wakaki is still shy, having not appeared on Oricon’s Top 30 charts since the Blog started tracking. Shogakukan is serializing the series through its Big Comic Spirits magazine where more information about it can be accessed right here via its official page. You can also read its first chapter here available in Japanese for free. A promotional video was also uploaded by BIG COMICS in November 2020 to promote the title of which you can watch below.
Shinigami Bocchan to Kuro Maid Volume 16 is 2nd on the list in its first 6 days, a series you may be familiar with considering it was adapted into a 12-episode TV Anime series by J.C.Staff between July 4 and September 19 last year. Like Kekkon suru tte, Hontou desu, it has appeared before on COMIC ZIN’s charts prior to this, but it has still not found much of a success in breaching Oricon’s Top 30 since the Blog started tracking. Note that this volume is also the Manga’s final and the series is said to have more than 1.5 million copies in print (Source: Yahoo). The work by Koharu Inoue was serialized between October 2017 and May 2022 in Shogakukan’s Sunday Webry of which its first three chapters can be read for free here in Japanese. The Manga also received a short promotional video that was released by Oricon in October of 2020. So do check it out below. One great news would be that the Anime is set to receive a Season 2, slated for broadcast in 2023.

In 2020, it received a 12-episode Anime adaptation by Science SARU and a live-action film the very same year. The Manga by Sumito Oowara has made an appearance once on Oricon’s Top 30 since the Blog started tracking, and that was for its 6th volume which charted at 26,966 copies sold in its first 6 days back between October 11 and October 17, 2021.

Then, Giant Ojousama is 4th on the list with its 3rd volume, not its first time on the COMIC ZIN’s chart, having appeared for Volume 2 back in February this year. It has so far not made it onto Oricon’s Top 30 charts since the release of its 1st volume. The Manga is serialized in Sunday Webry of which some of its chapters can be read for free in Japanese right here. Likewise, Wazawai Kitsune no Kuzure-chan Volume 4 that you see at Number 5 is in the same boat with Giant Ojousama. It has appeared before on COMIC ZIN’s chart in January this year but has so far not had any luck on Oricon’s Top 30. The title has been serialized in Comic Ryu Web since April 2020 of which more information about it can be found here. In addition, you can read its first chapter for free in Japanese right here via the same page. Sharing the same spot with Wazawai Kitsune no Kuzure-chan is Choukadou Girls Volume 6 in its first 6 days. Oricon’s Top 30 charts remain elusive for the title since it has not appeared once since the Blog started tracking, yet it has successfully made it onto COMIC ZIN’s charts for its past two titles. You can check out a preview of its 1st volume here through Book Walker in Japanese.
Among the titles on the chart for the week, Amagami-san Chi no Enmusubi which is placed 8th has a great chance of appearing on Oricon’s Top 30. The series has so far managed to do so for its past three volumes, however the shorter days of sales that Volume 6 may prove to be a challenge. Volumes 3, 4 and 5 were all charted at 30,332 copies, 28,996 copies and 33,765 copies sold in their first 5, 4 and 6 days respectively. Based on its 4th volume performance, it may note around 25,000 copies – 30,000 copies sold if all goes well. The Manga by Marcey Naitou is serialized in Kodansha’s Weekly Shounen Magazine, and if you are interested to see how it is like, some of its chapters have been made freely available in Japanese right here.
