In a most likely last move, the third volume of Card Captor Sakura ~Clear Card arc~ dropped to the 41st position in Oricon’s weekly ranking, with an estimate of 13,645 copies sold in its fifth 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 317,284 copies overall, closely tying in with the fourth week sales for volume 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.
Kodansha has recently announced that the Clear Card arc series has 1.5 copies in print.
