XXXHOLiC Rei #4 fell to the 40th position in Oricon’s weekly comic ranking, with 17,674 copies sold on its fourth week of sales and an estimate of 224,257 copies sold overall.

While the number of copies sold fell less than 50% in comparison to last week, the overall sales up to the 4th week are the lowest for a XXXHOLiC volume, even lower than the overall 3rd week sales for the previous 3 volumes of XXXHOLiC Rei.

These numbers are only for the regular edition. Numbers for the Blu-Ray limited edition are unknown.

These numbers are still good. There are many titles out there selling way less than this, but there is no denial that XXXHOLiC is slowly losing its popularity and the numbers are there to prove it.

It is likely that XXXHOLiC Rei #4 will not show up again next week on Oricon, but if that turns out to be the case, I’ll post here about its performance.
