Japan Top Weekly Manga Ranking: January 11, 2021 ~ January 17, 2021

Although Shingeki no Kyojin has displaced Jujutsu Kaisen for the number 1 spot, the entire catalogue of the title filled in thereafter, from number 2 all the way to number 16. Jujutsu Kaisen has accumulated number of copies sold at 1,758,027 copies for the week! If we include sales of Jujutsu Kaisen 0, that should edge the number up to 1,868,927 copies. This is rather an interesting phenomenon as we just witnessed last year with Kimetsu no Yaiba happening once again, only that this time with a different title. Makes you wonder at times, how Japanese’ consumer behaviour works. I honestly would like to suggest you guys to pick up the title’s western releases since they are on discount, but they are apparently all out of stock via Right Stuff.
