posted on by Egan Loo
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba takes record top 22 spots, followed by 3 One Piece books, more Demon Slayer, SPY×FAMILY, Attack on Titan

For the first time since Oricon began reporting its book ranking charts in April of 2008, one franchise, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, took the top 22 slots on the ranking chart. In addition, the limited editions of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba volume 20 and 21 claimed the #27 and #28 spots, so the series occupied 24 of the top 30. When regular and limited editions are combined, each of its first 22 volumes sold over three million copies in these past 12 months.

The Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba television anime aired from April to September 2019. Since then, sales of the manga grew exponentially, with some bookstores limiting sales to one volume per person due to depleted stocks.

This list covers sales surveyed from November 18, 2019 to November 22, 2020.
