Now that is pretty impressive achievement, congrats.

Good for Koyoharu Gotouge.

I wonder if this success is enough of a consideration of a continuation of the TV series after the movie. The story does appear to be heading towards a conclusion.

I'm uh, seeing Yurucamp on top?

https://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/bestsellers/books/2278488051/ref=pd_zg_hrsr_books

Unfortunately the source website did not provide a link to where it got this information, so I'm assuming that rather than the broad manga section it's only referring to physical copies? Though limiting such a ranking and not including the Kindle copies sold seems to completely eliminate the main use of Amazon for purchasing manga, which seems to me incredibly silly.

The results were for Amazon Japan for the week of December 29 and it is incredible that Demon Slayer was still that popular months after the anime has ended.

That's the thing. Amazon Japan does not do weekly or monthly rankings like its American and European counterparts do. I was hoping to finally see a link where Amazon Japan did just that, but in the blog referenced by this article there is no link anywhere that shows where the blog got this information from.
