Another record broken. The latest and final volume to the popular Kimetsu no Yaiba series debuted with a BANG indeed with almost 3 million copies sold. I initially estimated the number to be closer to 2 million copies or breaching the number, but not by that amount. The number of copies it sold is almost Continue reading Japan Top Weekly Manga Ranking: November 30, 2020 ~ December 6, 2020

Now this is certainly surprising. Judging from popularity and available data, while it was expected that Tensei shitara Slime Datta Ken would produce strong sales for its Volume 16 debut – perhaps even taking the number 1 spot, that does not seem to be the case. For the week between November 23 to November 29, Continue reading Japan Top Weekly Manga Ranking: November 23, 2020 ~ November 29, 2020

Looking at the intensity that the week’s chart possesses, I must say that it is more of a battlefield for Kimetsu no Yaiba versus Jujutsu Kaisen than your typical weekly sales chart. It is true that Kimetsu no Yaiba is still well entrenched especially in the Top 10, but the battle is clearly visible from Continue reading Japan Top Weekly Manga Ranking: November 9, 2020 ~ November 15, 2020

We have seen this coming awhile now with the uptrend evidently hinting the possibility of Haikyuu!!’s final volume reaching sales higher than 400,000 copies. Guess what? And it sure did! It did not just stop there as the Guidebook released alongside it (No. 3) sold a whopping 158,673 copies, together, the series sold 590,747 copies Continue reading Japan Top Weekly Manga Ranking: November 2, 2020 ~ November 8, 2020

Well, Kuroshitsuji has certainly beaten my expectation as it grabbed a foothold of the number 1 spot, selling 209,947 copies in its first week.
