The second volume of Card Captor Sakura ~Clear Card arc~ dropped to the 30th position in Oricon’s weekly ranking, with an estimate of 30,069 copies sold in its fourth week of sales and an accumulated overall sales of 317,478 copies approximately to date.

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

In comparison, the overall sales of volume 2 continue to be slightly less than the overall sales of volume 2 (345,809) by its fourth week of release. Volume 2 had a better ranking position in its fourth week when compared to volume 1 (30th place 2 vs 34th place), but sold slightly less (30,069 vs 33,482). Considering that the numbers of the limited edition are unknown, both volumes are practically tied in terms of sales.

PS: The above chart only shows the sales performance for the first 7 weeks of sales of volume 1. The total sales for volume 1 have surpassed 1 million.

In comparison, the overall sales of volume 2 continue to be slightly less than the overall sales of volume 2 (312,327) by its third week of release. There is a difference of nearly 25,000 copies more for volume 1, which isn’t much. But volume 2 had a much better third week performance than volume 1 (56,868 for  vol 2 vs 32,794 copies for volume 1). Considering that the numbers of the limited edition are unknown, both volumes are practically tied in terms of sales.

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.

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.
