I haven’t seen any decently ripped version of the audio drama yet, only a low quality recording of it, and since my copy arrived, I thought I’d give a shot at ripping and sharing it. I’ve never ripped a PLAYBUTTON before (I’ve never owned one before!) so I hope the quality is good enough.

The audio drama actually begins shortly before the ending of volume 3, during Watanuki and Syaoran’s conversation, then it segues into the extra story in the candy world from the booklet. There is actually some more extra dialogs in the audio drama that can’t be found in neither the manga or the booklet, so I was a bit disappointed that a script didn’t come along in the package.

Follow-up: Tsubasa – WoRLD CHRoNiCLE – Nirai Kanai hen #3 sales report

On its third week of release, Tsubasa – WoRLD CHRoNiCLE – Nirai Kanai hen #3 dropped to the 45th position in Oricon’s weekly comic ranking, with 17.887 copies sold and an overall sales of 132,570 copies in three weeks.

Again, these are the worst third week sales for a Tsubasa – WoRLD CHRoNiCLE – Nirai Kanai hen volume — actually, these are the worst third weeks sales for all of Tsubasa since I’ve been keeping track of those.

These numbers are only for the regular edition. Numbers for the PLAYBUTTON limited edition are unknown.

It is unlikely that Tsubasa will show up again next week in Oricon’s ranking, so this is pretty much the final outcome for it.

For comparison’s sake, here’s a chart showing the performance for all 3 volumes of Tsubasa – WoRLD CHRoNiCLE – Nirai Kanai hen, now updated with its third week.

On its second week of release, Tsubasa – WoRLD CHRoNiCLE – Nirai Kanai hen #3 dropped to the 20th position in Oricon’s weekly comic ranking, with 40.847 copies sold, with an overall sales of 114,683 copies in two weeks.

Unfortunately, these are the worst second week sales for a Tsubasa – WoRLD CHRoNiCLE – Nirai Kanai hen volume — actually, these are the worst second weeks sales for all of Tsubasa since I’ve been keeping track of those.

Once again, these numbers are only for the regular edition. Numbers for the PLAYBUTTON limited edition are unknown.

In case Tsubasa shows up again next week in Oricon’s ranking, I’ll post here about its performance.

For comparison’s sake, here’s a chart showing the performance for all 3 volumes of Tsubasa – WoRLD CHRoNiCLE – Nirai Kanai hen.
