There have been some changes to the reporting style here on the Blog. Please refer to the post here for further information.

It is thanks to the amazing folks over at Oricon that we get to see these charts on a weekly basis, so be sure to head over to their site here and show them lots of love! In addition, all the data you find below is accessible via Oricon right here (Manga) and here (Series). To access the sales data, be sure to click on the “Analytics” accordion and then click “Chart”. This should bring you to the Google chart page that contains the latest available sales data. Many of the titles that you see below have been discussed in the TSUTAYA’s sales chart for the same week, so do have a look at it right here. Some titles that did not make it onto the Top 30 chart were also discussed in the COMIC ZIN’s chart here. Please note that while Oricon tracks sales from a huge number of stores in Japan, the sales data below are not at the fullest since some stores do not participate in Oricon’s daily surveys.

Without further ado, the full Top 30 is as follows:

Analysis

Jujutsu Kaisen Volume 24‘s performance has noted a major improvement of 389.49% against Volume 10’s 184,320 copies sold, both in their first 12 days. Please note that the 10th volume was released prior to the broadcast of the series’ first Anime season and the sharp increase is reinforced due to a low base effect. When compared to volumes after the broadcast of the Anime, particularly those with fewer days of sales, Volume 24 has experienced a significant drop in copies sold. For instance, Volume 16 was at 1,519,819 copies sold in 10 days whereas Volume 18 was at 1,321,226 copies sold in 9 days. Although the gap has lessened between Volume 24 and more recent volumes such as Volume 21 and Volume 22, the difference is still stark with the two volumes selling 909,748 copies and 907,382 copies in their first 10 days respectively.

Jujutsu Kaisen and Spy x Family remain steadfast in their Number 1 and Number 2 positions, the same as last week, still heavily supported by sales of their latest volumes. However, with copies sold noting a significant drop week-over-week, sales have corresponded with Jujutsu Kaisen down by 54.22% to 183.15 million yen (≈1.22 million USD) whereas Spy x Family has fallen by 58.51% to 129.06 million yen (≈860.88 thousand USD). As there were not that many major releases throughout the week, and a rally for its volumes thanks to its Anime, Sousou no Frieren has clinched the 3rd spot at 106.92 million yen (≈713.20 thousand USD) for the week. That said, unlike the two titles at the top, Sousou no Frieren only considers sales from its Books, Novels and Manga divisions here with most of its sales coming from its Manga. Jujutsu Kaisen and Spy x Family took into account sales from all segments tracked by Oricon, and like Sousou no Frieren, most of their sales are from Manga. As such, with sales from the week before, Jujutsu Kaisen‘s total 14-day sales now stands at 583.20 million yen (≈3.89 million USD) whilst Spy x Family is at 440.10 million yen (≈2.94 million USD).
