Analysis

Copies sold for Blue Lock’s 21st volume have marked a 36.26% increase when compared to Volume 14 (which had the same number of days of sales) to 108,637 which may be one of its best performances to date. Volume 18 could have had the potential to sell more than Volume 21 had it went on several days longer since its average per day sales were quite high (it had 4 days of sales). Nevertheless, copies sold seemed to have calmed down for its subsequent volumes (19 and 20) and have picked up once again with its Anime adaptation being very likely the cause for the boost.

Additional Comments

Blue Lock is being adapted into a 24-episode TV Anime series by studio 8bit. The first episode was aired on October 9, 2022.

Blue Lock tops the weekly series chart for the week between October 17 and October 23 amid strong performance from its Manga department, particularly physical sales of its 21st volume. The same week also saw other related releases such as Blue Lock: Episode Nagi Volume 1 and its Light Novel, Blue Lock: Tatakai no Mae, Bokura wa. Isagi・Nagi・Bachira making it onto their own respective charts. Apart from Manga, which is its biggest contributor for the week, Blue Lock also derived sales from its Music, Books and Novels departments. In total, it sold 206.37 million yen (≈1.40 million USD) worth of physical goods for the week.

Chainsaw Man managed to retain its Number 2 spot as it entered its third week on the Top 3 weekly series chart. Total physical sales went up by 10.40% week-on-week to 129.96 million yen (≈880.15 thousand USD) with Manga still being its largest contributor.
