Top Sales According to Series for the Month of December 2022

Slam Dunk topped the series sales chart for the month of December with 1,075.05 million yen (≈8.04 million USD) worth of physical sales made involving its Video, Music, Books, Novels and Manga segment. Much of its sales for the month were derived by its Manga segment particularly the release of THE FIRST SLAM DUNK re:SOURCE between December 12 and December 18 that could be seen pushing up sales to its highest point throughout the month when the volume sold 130,640 in its first 4 days. The series then witnessed a fall in physical sales by 18.15% the week after as demand for the newest volume waned.

Coming in 2nd is Blue Lock that sold 744.48 million yen (≈5.57 million USD) worth of physical products tracked by Oricon. Unlike Slam Dunk, the series only derived sales you see here via its Music, Books, Novels and Manga segments with most of its sales concentrated on its Manga. Sales began to strengthen even further for the series somewhere in the week between December 12 and December 18 where it breached the Top 3 series sales chart for the first time, bolstered by the airing of its Anime adaptation that saw high demands for its Manga.

Finally, Jujutsu Kaisen took the 3rd spot at 697.95 million yen (≈5.22 million USD) with sales only from its Video, Music and Manga with the latter being its best segment for the month. This is largely due to the release of its Manga’s 21st volume that placed 1st on Oricon Top 30 sales chart for the week between November 28 and December 4 at 568,006 copies sold in its first 3 days. The momentum was slightly retained the following week albeit a drop in sales at 341,742 copies sold, however was not strong enough to allow it a placing on the Top 3 series chart between December 5 and December 11.
