Japan Top Weekly Manga Ranking: December 7, 2020 ~ December 13, 2020

As expected, sales of Kimetsu no Yaiba stumbled sharply in its second week from a massive debut of 2,855,169 copies sold to 245,321 copies. However, this would bring the sales of the Regular Edition beyond the 3 million copies sold mark. The 2nd to 10th placing are all occupied by Kimetsu no Yaiba after a week of absence in the chart the previous week. Interestingly, Jujutsu Kaisen is out for the week as none of its volumes made into the Top 30, though they must be somewhere from 31 to 50.

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 through Oricon right here (Manga) and here (Series).
