The second volume of Card Captor Sakura ~Clear Card arc~ debutted at the 7th position in Oricon’s weekly ranking, with an estimate of 70,099 copies sold in its first week of sales.

The above numbers are for the regular edition. The Special Edition (badges + postcard) did not appear in the top 50, which means it sold less than 15,496 copies (which is how much the 50th place sold).

While these numbers might seem a little underwhelming for Card Captor Sakura standards, it is worth mentioning that the ranking ranges from March 27 to April 2 and these volumes came out on April 1st, so these numbers reflect the sales of two days only, not a whole week.

We should have a more solid idea of its performance by next week’s numbers, when they’ll have a full week exposure.
