Some of the previous week’s bestsellers have reported sharp falls on their week-to-week performances as Jujutsu Kaisen Volume 19 dropped two spots to Number 3. Copies sold plummeted by 80.94% to 208,411 copies for the Regular Edition while the Special Edition has been jettisoned out from the list. This would put its two-week sales at 1,368,641 copies sold (minus the Special Edition for the week), slightly more than Volume 17’s 1,357,799 copies sold by 0.79% and 39.50% higher than Volume 14’s 828,032 copies sold. While the performance is exceptionally good, it is still less than the 10-day sales of Volume 16 which sold 1,519,819 copies and the 9-day sales of Volume 18 which sold 1,321,226 copies.
As for Spy x Family which comes in 4th, copies sold have retreated by 71.31% to 173,944 copies, putting its 14-day sales at 780,225 copies sold which is 6.72% more than Volume 6’s 727,776 copies. However, this may not be its best performance to date as Volume 7 was able to achieve 712,393 copies sold in just 10 days. That said, all of its individual volumes are present on the week’s list to see a total of 431,069 copies sold combined, and if you consider the Volume 1 to 3 set at Number 11 with 36,976 copies sold, that should bring the figure to a very healthy 468,045 copies.
Unfortunately, for One Piece Volume 102, this would be its worst performance since Volume 93. Copies sold plunged by 83.91% week-on-week to close at 169,033, putting its 14-day sales at 1,219,366 copies. If you notice the graph below, all the volumes’ listed on it have days of sales less than Volume 19. Particularly Volume 95 which only had 9 days of sales, yet copies sold remained at a high 1,452,119 copies. If we take into account the pre-sales of Volume 102, this will put its total lifetime sales so far at 1,431,288 copies, still less than the 10-day sales of Volumes 94, 96 and 100. While its performance is still nothing to be scoffed at, the lack of momentum though… can be a cause of concern for some fans.

Some titles that did not make it onto the Top 30 chart were also discussed in the COMIC ZIN’s chart here.
Onto some of the big and new releases for the week, well, we have none other than Tokyo Revengers leading the chart at 430,434 copies sold in the first 3 days, not its best, but certainly not its worst either.

There are currently no physical, individual English releases for the Manga, however Kodansha Comics has announced the omnibus editions for the title. The 1st volume of the omnibus edition is set to release this coming July the 26th and will cover the first two volumes. In addition to that, you can also find its character book titled “Valhalla and Kokuryuu-hen” which is placed 7th on the list at 52,090 copies. As the name suggests, information therein will cover the two arcs.
Detective Conan Volume 101 is 2nd on the list at 253,893 copies sold in its first 5 days, 11.98% less than Volume 99 which sold 288,456 copies back in April 14, but 19.38% higher than Volume 98’s 204,698 copies sold. If you jump all the way to Number 30, you will find another of its related title called Detective Conan: Keisatsu Gakkou Selection which has sold 21,562 copies, also in the first 5 days.
Orange’s final volume is 8th at 50,181 copies sold in the first 6 days, a rather welcoming performance considering the five-year wait. Then, at Number 10 is 2-gatsu no Shousha: Zettai Goukaku no Kyoushitsu Volume 15 at 38,764 copies sold in the first 6 days. The title last made an appearance for its 14th volume which sold 29,279 copies in the first 3 days.
