Japan Top Weekly Manga Ranking: January 4, 2021 ~ January 10, 2021

There is a lot of new releases making the chart for the week between January 4 to January 10, but I know we all have seen this coming, sales of Jujutsu Kaisen had just exploded. The previous Volume 13 made its debut back in October prior to the broadcasting of the Anime. Volume 14th massive jump in number of copies sold coincides with the broadcast of its Anime, recording almost five times more the debut sales of Volume 13 setting a new record for the series. Note that, the Anime’s first Blu-ray volume is set to release this coming 20th of January. I am excited to see how it performs on the Blu-ray chart that week.

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 can all be found via Oricon right here (Manga) and here (Series).

Following closely behind Jujutsu Kaisen is Shingeki no Kyojin which saw a slight dip over Volume 32’s debut sales while at number 3 is Boku no Hero Academia‘s Volume 29 which performed significantly better than Volume 28 in its first week — it sold 228,529 copies at the time.
