The third volume of Card Captor Sakura ~Clear Card arc~ dropped to the 17th position in Oricon’s weekly ranking, with an estimate of 38,143 copies sold in its third week of sales.

The above numbers are for the regular edition. The Special Edition (OAD) did not appear in this week’s top 50.

Combining the sales for both versions, Card Captor Sakura ~Clear Card arc~ #3 sold an estimate of 283,277 copies overall. That is slightly less than the overall third week sales for volumes 1 and 2.

It is worth mentioning that Oricon only takes into account a certain number of shops. These numbers are only an estimate and it’s possible that the real figures are higher than these.
