Follow-up: XXXHOLiC #17 Sales Report

XXXHOLiC #17 kept a very good position in its second week of sales, dropping only 5 positions in Oricon’s ranking, still remaining in the Top 10:

• Oricon Weekly Ranking:


1st – Naruto #51
2nd – Nodame Cantabile #24
3rd – Katekyo Hitman REBORN! #29
8th – XXXHOLiC #17

Still according to Oricon, XXXHOLiC #17 sold 143.266 copies in its second week, a drop of only 15% in comparison to last week. The overall sales of XXXHOLiC #17 is currently 313.019 copies (regular edition only).

That number is still the lowest 2nd week grossing of the last 5 volumes, but represents, on the other hand, the lowest 2nd week drop of the last 5 volumes.

Glad to see that XXXHOLiC is holding still after a not-so-powerful first week run (guess everybody was buying the top 2 comics). Hopefully it will still be amongst Oricon Top 30 next week?

  1. Good for XXXHOLIC! Altought it wasn’t one of my favourite volumes, I still can’t see the point of this new part of the story with Watanuki as the owner
    And now I wonder how a volume 19 of X would do (with a lot of promotion and fireworks)… think about it CLAMP


  2. I thought ti did quite well, what’s with what was released around that time — FMA last week (and you just can’t hold up with an FMA volume out) and now a Naruto volume. I thought it’ll surely slip lower on the list, but am glad that’s not the case.


  3. Thanks for the extra info~
    Well, leaving aside comparing with previous volumes, I think 313019 is a pretty good selling number, isn’t it? Does it include both Normal and Special editions?
