Japan Top Weekly Manga Ranking: September 23, 2019 ~ September 29, 2019

It would seem that an epiphany struck those who have been following Kimetsu no Yaiba and 600,000 over people in Japan decided to buy the volumes this week. Nevertheless, Kimetsu no Yaiba continues its sales streak selling very well in Japan. The same is to be assumed for sales outside of Japan though, I have no data for that now. Perhaps some digging shall ensue once I have time. See if an annual or quarterly report for Shueisha could be found. This week’s crown goes to a shoujo Manga by Mika Yamamori taking the top spot, in fact Vol. 14 is the last tankoubon for the series that has since stopped serializing since August the 20th this year. The list also sees a number of new faces including Karuho Shiina’s next installment for the Kimi ni Todoke series as well as Coffee & Vanilla and Ashi-Girl taking the number 9 and 10 spots respectively.
