Japan Top Weekly Manga Ranking: September 02, 2019 ~ September 8, 2019

This week’s list sees a slew of new titles making into the top 10 ranking with Haikyuu!! Vol. 39 selling 260,748 copies followed by Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card-hen Vol. 7 and Owari no Seraph Vol. 19 making the top 2 and 3 respectively. Last week’s ranking was held by Kingdom Vol. 55, but Yasushisa Hara’s tale of China’s Warring States could not retain its number 1 spot for long as it was toppled hard all the way to number 11. Likewise a number of titles that were listed in last week’s top 10 have all dropped down from the list such as Uchuu Kyoudai and Shingeki no Kyojin. For the full list do visit Oricon here.

Kimetsu no Yaiba has been nothing short but a success story. Many of its volumes are still selling as of to date and sales is still very much encouraging. This includes the sale of its Fanbook that continues to sell strong which could be attributable to the broadcasting of its anime as we see a few other titles that were screened before made into the list, that includes Bokutachi wa Benkyou ga Dekinai and Dr.STONE.

Hopefully some of your favourites also made into the list! If you find any broken links do let us know. Also, please share your thoughts in the comment section below!
