Japan Top Weekly Manga Ranking: June 15, 2020 ~ June 21, 2020

Yasuhisa Hara’s 58th volume of Kingdom which debuted on the 19th of June claims the week’s top spot for the period between June 15 to June 21, amassing 420,296 copies sold in Japan for the week. Though, the figure is lesser than the number of copies sold for its 57th volume, which debuted at 469,000 copies in its first week. Nevertheless, we can expect the title to stay on the chart for the next week or two. Despite Kingdom’s success in Japan, I wonder why hasn’t any English publishers (like Viz) picked up the title and distribute them elsewhere?

It is thanks to Oricon that we get to see these charts on a weekly basis, so be sure to head to Oricon here and show them some love! You can find the data for the week’s chart available here.

The week’s Top 10 saw six other titles making into the list with the other 3 spots are being occupied by Kimetsu no Yaiba, which is continuing to have a strong presence on the weekly charts. Trailing closely behind Kingdom is Golden Kamuy’s 22nd volume, though it sold more than four times lesser than Kingdom. At number 3, you will find Shuumatsu no Walküre, which has been doing rather well as of late.

If you are thinking to pick up anything new to read, Kodansha Comics recently licensed Kanojo, Okarishimasu (No. 5), and the first English volume was released the 2nd of June this year. Another title that you may want to consider is Ojisama to Neko (No. 7) which was brought over by Square Enix Manga in February 2020. Volume 3 is expected to be released next year’s January.

In other news, Kimetsu no Yaiba and Kingdom top the weekly charts by series here with Kimetsu no Yaiba managing a sales of 535.9 million yen (~5 million USD) during the period while the latter falls a little short at 389.8 million yen (~3.6 million USD). Both figures are inclusive of tax. Without further ado, the full Top 30 is as follows:
