Tokyo Revengers remains steadfast at Number 1 for the week between April 18 and 24 albeit a drop of 54.13% to 197,434 copies sold from its debut of 430,434 copies sold the week before. This would put its 10-day sales at 627,868 copies sold, its third best since Volume 22. The highest it has ever produced was for Volume 25, back in December last year, it sold 720,725 copies in the first 10 days, and Volume 24 is its second best at 673,597 copies. Volume 11 was at 704,816 copies sold thanks to the extra day (4 days of sales) it had on the chart.
Following right after is Golden Kamuy’s 29th volume at 158,914 copies sold in the first 6 days, which is still a positive outcome, but is still not its best. Note that from the graph below, all its volumes were sold at either 3 days or 4 days. Take a look at Volumes 19 to 21. The three volumes managed to push out above 140,000 copies sold in the span of 4 days, and if they had longer days of sales, they may have surpassed sales of Volume 29. As of April the 28th, the Manga has officially ended, and as such this may be a good time to give it a read. Viz Media has so far released its first 25 volumes in English and Volume 26 is set to hit shores this coming 17th of May.
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!

If Google charts are what you prefer, you can find their respective links to the charts at the bottom of the post. Many of the titles that you see below have been discussed in the TSUTAYA’s sales chart for the same week, so do have a look at it right here. Some titles that did not make it onto the Top 30 chart were also discussed in the COMIC ZIN’s chart here.
Head over to Number 7 and you will find Komi-san wa, Comyushou desu. with its 25th volume at 59,633 copies sold in its first week. Not its best considering it sold 60,611 copies for Volume 24 back in January 2022 in the first 6 days, but it is certainly an upgrade over Volume 23’s 56,579 copies sold in its first week. The Anime adaptation of the Manga series is currently seeing its second cour being aired, and of course, you can also check out its official English Manga releases of which up to Volume 18 are available for grabs. Volume 19 and 20 are slated for June and September releases this year.
There are several other new releases on the chart including Number 13’s Kindaichi 37-sai no Jikenbo Volume 12 at 44,446 copies in the first 4 days, a slight fall from the 45,051 copies it made for Volume 11 back in October 2021. Next at Number 14 is a Boys Love title, Mask Danshi wa Koishitakunai noni Volume 3 at 36,971 copies sold. It has so far not made onto the Top 30 sales charts since its serialization in November 2019. Tsuiraku JK to Haijin Kyoushi Volume 13 is placed 15th on the list with 32,124 copies sold for the week. The Manga is currently serialized in Hana to Yume magazine of which more information about it can be accessed via its official web page right here. You can also check out its special promotional video released by Hakusensha in June 2018 down below.
Over to Number 20 is Ao no Orchestra Volume 10 at 30,597 copies sold in the first 6 days, quite stable if you think of it since Volume 9 sold 39,760 copies in its first week back in April 2021. Note that it is set to receive an Anime adaptation on an unannounced date. Similarly, at Number 21 is also another title that will receive the Anime treatment. Tongari Boushi no Atelier Volume 10 at Number 21 is at 30,563 copies sold in its first 4 days. Having achieved 1 million copies in printed circulation, Yamada-kun to Lv999 no Koi wo Suru Volume 5 is 24th on the list at 29,111 copies sold in the first 3 days. The KADOKAWA title which is a webcomic began serialization in May 2019 via Ganma! magazine, and it can be accessed via its official page right here with up to its first five chapters available for reading for free in Japanese. So do give it a try!
At Number 25 is 30-sai made Doutei dato Mahoutsukai ni Nareru Rashii Volume 10, another Boys Love title with its Special Edition copies sold at 27,218 in its first 4 days. Its Regular Edition unfortunately did not make it onto the Top 30 list. Be Blues! Ao ni Nare Volume 47 is 27th at 26,449 copies sold in its first week, not as good as the 6-day sales of Volume 46 which had 28,041 copies sold back in January this year. This will not be Jiisan Baasan Wakagaeru first entry onto the Top 30 chart as it was last seen for Volume 4 back in October 2021 with 26,015 copies sold in the first 3 days. The 5th volume sold a little less than that at 25,080 copies as it places 29th on the list. Finally, at Number 30 is the Manga adaptation of the Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu series with 23,806 copies sold in its first 6 days. Without further ado, the full list is as follows:
