Tokyo Revengers Volume 29 makes its debut at the top of the chart at 444,084 copies sold in its first 5 days as it overtakes One Piece Volume 103 that dominated the prior two charts to be the best-selling Manga for the week.

Copies sold for Volumes 27 and 28 (in their first 3 days) onward could not keep the momentum seeing slower and slower sales.
