Japan’s Weekly Manga & Light Novel Rankings For March 4th, 2018

3 min read

The latest rankings have landed from Japan for manga and light novels and it’s a pretty big week in one area. And that’s the latest One Piece volume that hits with just a hair over 1.3 million copies moved. The series still has a good bit of strength to it with its mainstream crossover appeal in comparison to other series so it’ll roll out nicely. Once past that things are a bit quieter, though some of it is with just a couple of days of sales, such as Gintama which only accounts for two or so days here. Blue Exorcist continues to do well as does Dragon ball Super while we get to see a number of smaller titles sneak in that are under the 70,000 mark that may be ripe for an anime adaptation.

On the light novel side it’s some decent numbers for post-debut sales of bigger titles like No Game No Life and Sword Art Online. The seventh volume of The Pharmacist’s Monologue is the highest new release debut in fourth with just under 11,000 units moved.
