Analysis

Mystery to Iu nakare Volume 12’s 196,014 copies sold in its first 6 days is perhaps the series’ best performance to date, particularly when compared to sales prior to Volume 11. The 6-day sales for its latest volume are 212.62% stronger than the performance of Volume 5 which made its debut at 62,701 copies sold in its first 5 days back in September 2019. Much of the boost you see here can be attributed to its live-action adaptation (that occurred from January to March 2022), however, the series had already gotten its initial boost from Volume 5 to Volume 10 after being nominated for a number of awards, plus winning one in January 2022.

Additional Comments

Mystery to Iu nakare was adapted into a live-action drama starring Suda Masaki that aired from January to March 2022.

Analysis

Chainsaw Man Volume 13’s performance as of Week 2 is only second to that of Volume 11 since Volume 9 after a not so expected 324,220 copies sold in the first 13 days witnessed for Volume 12 despite having its Anime being aired throughout Fall 2022. The series did record an overall jump in sales since the Anime began, but newer volumes did not seem to reciprocate with lower turnouts noted for Volumes 12 and 13 in their first 6 days and 5 days. The 402,928 copies sold for Volume 13 as of Day 12 is certainly much stronger than Volume 12, though a tad bit lower than the 412,334 copies sold for Volume 11 in its first 11 days.

Hakumei to Mikochi Volume 11’s 31,072 copies sold is slightly down against Volume 10’s 35,190 copies sold by 11.70%, both in their first 2 days. Before that, the series was also seen with Volume 9 at 46,052 copies in its first 3 days while Volume 8 sold 53,518 copies in its first 6 days. Volume 11 would have had a hard time overtaking Volume 9 had it gone a day longer due to a lower average per day of sales that it has.

Additional Comments

Hakumei to Mikochi was animated as a 12-episode Anime series by studio Lerche in 2018, and the very same year, it received a Special episode titled “Neji to Bed to Irori to Bakuchi”.
