The fifth volume of Card Captor Sakura ~Clear Card arc~ dropped to the 27th position in Oricon’s weekly ranking, with an estimate of 41,401 copies sold in its third week of sales — which represents around a 50% drop. It has sold an estimate of 217,100 copies after three weeks on sale.
The above numbers are for the regular edition, only. Sale numbers for the Special Edition (Nendoroid Puchi) are unknown.
Once again, these are the lowest third week sales and lowest accumulated sales after two weeks for the entire Clear Card series. Sure enough, these are only for regular edition, but these are the parameters that we are working with.
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.

We will see if it will make it to the 4th week. Stay tuned!

I know the Special Edition volumes are kinda limited, but could it be the regular edition sales were "affected" by the Special one. I don't remember where, but I read the Puchi Petite edition was sold out in just a few hours.
I feel CCS is doing good, but I've read many people feel the anime was a big let down. Not only the animation, but that the whole series was "plain boring" (not my personal opinion, though I understand why they say it) and that can inevitably affect the sales. I hope a second season is on the way and that it changes people perception of the series 😦
Even in Japan, fans begin to decline. in Italy for example, the fan says “they will interrupt the series sooner or later, I do not buy their work”
Also on Twitter, the fans asks when X, Gate 7, return.
This is a great problem for Nanase and co.
Sadly, it seens the manga market, which Cardcaptor Sakura is in, works much in sales numbers. Even if a history was great, it if don’t sell well, it’s trashed out.
I agreee this CCS saga is boring. But that was a change to Sakura return to us…
Not knowing the numbers for the sales of the Special Edition is turning out to be quite an issue uh It’s a shame we don’t have a better source for this, but than again, I don’t think any manga series out there really have a website with the listing of every last single volumes (regular or special) that were sold nationwide in Japan (and sent overseas to fans like us too) ^^;;;;;
I still, honestly, think that these doesn’t reflect the true popularity of the series 😀 Card Captor Sakura Clear Card is doing very well for me! ❤
