Japan Top Weekly Manga Ranking: October 18, 2021 ~ October 24, 2021

Seeing how its presales were doing the week before, it is expected to see Detective Conan Volume 100 to sit atop for the week. Copies sold are at a healthy 288,562 for the series’ 100th volume. If we take its presales into account, that would shoot the number up to 356,414 copies. However, its performance seems to be less than that of Volume 99, which managed to churn out 288,456 copies in the span of only 5 days. Good news is, not only the main series is on the Top 10, but its spin-off title Zero no Tea Time‘s 5th volume closes in at Number 3 with 95,367 copies sold. Like the 100th volume, it too noticed 24,949 copies of presales making onto the chart the week before. Thus, putting it at a comfortable 120,316 copies sold so far. Zero no Tea Time last made its debut with the presales of Volume 4 back in November 2019.

Number 4 sees Kusuriya no Hitorigoto: Maomao no Koukyuu Nazotoki Techou Volume 12, which serves as an alternate story to Natsu Hyuuga’s Kusuriya no Hitorigoto Manga adaptation of the Light Novel of the same name. Copies sold are at a strong 77,884 copies. Evidently, when compared to Volume 6 which too had 6 days of sales, the 12th volume exhibits an improvement of 32.53% over the volume’s 52,552 copies sold.

Surprisingly, Komi-san wa, Comyushou desu. Volume 23 falls below expectation, and that the 7-day sales would have allowed it push number of copies sold beyond the sales had by Volumes 15 and 17, both had 7 days of sales. Yet, its numbers are rather low despite having its Anime being broadcasted at the moment.

One more new release that can be seen on the Top 10 list is Number 9’s Namaikizakari. Volume 22 at 46,824 copies sold in its first 5 days. The title last made its appearance for Volume 21 back in May 2021 with 42,056 copies sold in its first 4 days, and Volume 19 in July 2020 at 49,825 copies sold in its first 7 days.
