Japan’s Weekly Manga & Light Novel Rankings For January 24th, 2016

3 min read

Vinland Saga Volume 17 CoverThe latest manga and light novel sales rankings have arrived from Japan for the week ending January 24th, 2016 and there’s some good stuff going on here. Fans of Kingdom definitely drove that to the top well with just under 400,000 copies sold in its first week of sales, easily outstripping second place Magi with its 28th volume at 263,000 copies. Riding on anime-anticipation is Sakamoto desu ga? which adds another 167,000 units this week as well. A lot of new titles do hit the list with some good numbers, such as Wakakozake, leaving us hopeful for more anime, and Vinland Saga as well, which we dearly love and want to see get a good nod here.
