Japan Top Weekly Manga Ranking: October 26, 2020 ~ November 1, 2020

Well, Kuroshitsuji has certainly beaten my expectation as it grabbed a foothold of the number 1 spot, selling 209,947 copies in its first week. Based on data we have for sales of its Volume 29, I was assuming that the sales would have maintained somewhat similar to then (133,759 copies in its first week). However, the outcome was much different as it sold higher than the number projected by Volume 29 back in January.

It is thanks to the wonderful people 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 available here via Oricon.

Sales of Kimetsu no Yaiba’s volumes are still heavily nested in the chart despite the drop. Since, the title is much of a wild card, it is hard to predict whether the sales will continue to slow down. Fortunately, the chart is not all about Kimetsu no Yaiba. Dive in deeper into the chart – starting from number 24, you will find several new titles (four to be precise). Ao Ashi, BLUE GIANT SUPREME, Toaru Majutsu no Index Gaiden: Toaru Kagaku no Railgun and BLUE GIANT EXPLORER made their new volumes debut with relatively decent sales for the week.
