Japan Top 10 Weekly Light Novel Ranking: February 1, 2021 ~ February 7, 2021

The week’s Light Novel sales chart greeted us with two new releases in the Top 10 with Mamahaha no Tsurego ga Motokano datta‘s Volume 8 at number 8, selling 5,764 copies for the week. At number 9 is the 17th volume of Potion-danomi de Ikinobimasu! The title’s official English release is currently out with Volume 4 and Volume 5 up for pre-order.

It is thanks to the amazing folks over at Oricon 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! The data you find below is all available via Oricon right here.

The two Light Novels of Jujutsu Kaisen are down for the week with Yuku Natsu to Kaeru Aki falling the hardest. Yoake no Ibara Michi had a modest drop of 13.45% for the week. This week also features three of Kimetsu no Yaiba titles on the list, with Kaze no Michishirube and Shiawase no Hana both up for the week by about 30%. Though data is not available week-on-week, Katabane no Chou too experienced a climb as it ends the week with 8,250 copies sold.

Kusuriya no Hitorigoto‘s Volume 10 retains its number 1 spot, though sales stumbled 22.57%. It sold 27,785 copies for the week, which should put its two-week sales at 63,670 copies. A very good amount indeed. Without further ado, the full list is as follows:
