The week between June 13 and June 19 is looking a lot tighter now with COMIC ZIN’s coming into play with more popular titles set to make their appearances for the week. Note that for Golden Kamuy Volume 30, “Oshi no Ko” Volume 8, Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai: Tensai-tachi no Renai Zunousen Volume 26 and Sousou no Frieren Volume 8, they have all been discussed in the TSUTAYA post I made right here, so please do give it a read!
As for COMIC ZIN’s list, the title that was not present on TSUTAYA’s chart for the same week begins with Tonikaku Kawaii Volume 20 at 3 days of sales with an expected turnout of 20,000 to 25,000 copies if it makes it onto Oricon’s sales chart this coming Friday. Prior to this, its 19th volume had 24,006 copies sold in its first 3 days between February 14 and February 20 while Volume 18 was at 31,624 copies sold in its first 4 days. The Manga is serialized in the Shounen Sunday magazine and is worked on by Kenjirou Hata whom you may have heard of if you have either read or watched the Hayate no Gotoku! series. In October of 2020, it received a 12-episode TV Anime series adaptation, produced by Seven Arcs, and later in December the same year it received a Special episode titled “SNS” before an OVA was released in August of 2021. The series will receive a sequel to its TV Anime adaptation on an unannounced date with another Special episode slated to arrive in Summer 2022. More information about the Manga can be found on its official page right here and its first three chapters can be read for free in Japanese here. It also received a short promotional video in March last year which is accompanied by the song Koi no Uta featuring Yunomi. Do check it out below!
At Number 4 is a familiar title, Akebi-chan no Sailor-fuku makes its 10th volume debut at 3 days of sales. Interestingly enough, it has so far not made onto the Oricon Top 30 charts since the Blog started tracking, however, I do suspect it will do so this time seeing how well the Anime has had an impact onto the series overall. You can already observe the positive influence the Anime has had by looking at sales of its Anime Blu-rays, for instance, its 1st volume of Blu-ray made a welcoming presence in its first 5 days selling 3,531 copies, and its 2nd volume charted at 5 days at 3,270 copies. In addition to that, according to its latest volume cover, the series has reached 900,000 copies in printed circulation. The series has been serialized in the Tonari no Young Jump since August 2016 by the same Mangaka who worked on Super Cub. Its first ten chapters have been made freely available on Shounen Jump+, of which you can have a go at here. In January this year, to promote Hiro’s (the Mangaka) collection of artworks, a short promotional video was released which features the artist’s drawing of Komichi Akebi. You can watch it below!
It is thanks to the amazing people over at Natalie.mu that we get to see these charts on a weekly basis, so be sure to head over to their site here and show them lots of love! Plus, all the data you find below is accessible via Natalie.mu right here.
Kimi wa 008 Volume 20 is 5th on the list at 3 days of sales as well and has made numerous appearances on the COMIC ZIN’s sales charts before, however it has so far failed to produce satisfactory results on Oricon’s Top 30 lists. The author who works on the title is Syun Matsuena who was previously involved in the Shijou Saikyou no Deshi Kenichi series. Serialization commenced for the work in February 2018, and more information about it can be accessed via its official page right here. You can also read some of its chapters for free in Japanese right here. Kouiu no ga Ii which comes in 7th for its 3rd volume is at 3 days of sales. The work by Souryuu has been ongoing since October 2020 with a slew of its chapters made freely available for you to read in Japanese right here. It also received a promotional video rather recently which features voices from Kengo Kawanishi and Hiromi Igarashi. You can check it out below.
Then, we have Kimi no Koto ga Daidaidaidaidaisuki na 100-nin no Kanojo Volume 10 at Number 9 for 3 days of sales. The work has made multiple appearances before on COMIC ZIN’s charts, but it has never breached the Top 30 Oricon sales charts since the Blog started tracking. The series started its serialization journey in December 2019 via the Young Jump magazine with quite a number of its chapters are up for free right here in Japanese if you would like to give it a try. To commemorate its 10th volume, it received a promotional video that also indicated that the series has passed 1 million copies in printed circulation. You can watch it below (the first one). Next, sharing a spot with Kimi no Koto ga Daidaidaidaidaisuki na 100-nin no Kanojo is Yofukashi no Uta Volume 11 at 3 days of sales, one of the titles you should keep an eye out as it is set to also appear on Oricon’s Top 30 sales chart for the same week. Before this, it made an appearance for Volume 10 at 27,644 copies sold in its first 3 days between February 14 and February 20, and Volume 9 was last seen charting between November 15 and November 21 last year at 40,409 copies sold in its first 4 days. Its Anime adaptation is nigh, set to appear this Summer Season, produced by LIDENFILMS and directed by Tomoyuki Itamura (Bakemonogatari series, Kimi no Suizou wo Tabetai). 12 days ago, it received its latest Anime promotional video of which you can watch below (second video). As for its Manga, serialization began in August 2019 in the Shounen Sunday magazine with more information about it can be obtained via its official page here. Be sure to check out some of its chapters that can be read for free in Japanese right here as well.
