Only one Manga title has made onto the Trade Paper Frontlist chart for the week between May 15 and May 21.
Oddly enough, the release in particular was not on the list the week before. Death Note Short Stories sees 71.33% reduction in sales from the week before which it should have sold 16,189 copies. Note that the title was released on May the 10th and Viz Media describes the release as follows:
Is Kira’s story truly over, or does his influence linger?
In this complete collection of Death Note short stories penned by the series’ creators, discover tales of lives irrevocably changed by the sinister influence of the Death Note, with surprising and thrilling answers to the question of what it truly takes to use the Death Note…or fight it.
Contains stories “C-Kira,” “a-Kira,” the Death Note pilot chapter, vignettes of L’s life, and more.
