The second volume of Card Captor Sakura ~Clear Card arc~ remained at the 7th position in Oricon’s weekly ranking, with an estimate of 160,442 copies sold in its second week of sales and an accumulated overall sales of 230,541 copies approximately to this date.

The above numbers are for the regular edition, only. The Special Edition (badges + postcard) did not appear in the top 50.

These numbers are a lot more solid than last week’s, given that this time the volume had a full week exposure.

In comparison, the overall sales of volume 2 are slightly less than the overall sales of volume 1 (279,533) by its second week of release. But volume 1 had one or two more days of exposure, so that might explain the small difference). My impression is that volume 2 is going just as good as volume 1.

  1. Thank you for the update ^^

    Seeing the numbers like this now, 70099 mangas sold is pretty impressive for only the week-end, especially considering sunday pretty much doesn’t count since most stores are closed. While we got 160442 for an entire week.

    If we add all the books sold to international fans (I know, there is very unlikely that many…) + the onlines sales (I don’t know if oricon counts all the books sold in the countless online stores there are?) + the special edition, I think that CLAMP are doing very well with this new series, seeing this big interest in their work should motivate them for the upcoming volumes! 😀

    • I think the books sold to international fans are counted too. I mean, Oricon counts Amazon Japan so as long as you bought them there, they should be counting.

      We know that Oricon doesn’t cover everything, so it’s just a thermometer of what the real numbers are. We just need to see how fast volume 1 went from 400 k to 1 million copies sold.

      Volume 2 is going in the same path as volume 1, so it’s likely that it will break the 1 million milestone as well in a few months’ time.
