Very very slow week this time around, with only one volume being released this week among the top 23 volumes in this ranking . It logically takes the top spot, with no real competition.

Hidan no Aria is in the top 10 for another week (which I am okay with; same with Arifureta) and it seems that Japan really likes Seishun Buta Yarou a lot as 5 of the volumes in the series are in the top 20.

Promised neverland ruling both of the manga and LN chart and it will probably rule The bluray sales chart
