Card Captor Sakura ~Clear Card arc~ #9 second week sales report

© CLAMP・Shigatsu Tsuitachi CO.,LTD. / 講談社

The ninth volume of Card Captor Sakura ~Clear Card arc~ dropped to the 46th position in Oricon’s weekly ranking, with an estimate of 29,786 copies sold in its second week of sales. Combining the sales from weeks 1 and 2, the overall sales for volume 9 is an estimate of 107,406 copies. Not only this is the weakest second week sales for a Clear Card volume, but also it is the lowest overall sales by week 2 of the entire Clear Card series so far. 

These numbers are for the regular edition, only. Numbers for the special edition (Stationery set) are unknown as it did not appear on the ranking. Keep in mind that pre-orders and special edition sales might have affected these first week sales numbers.

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.

I don’t think we will be seeing volume 9 in next week’s ranking. It was a really short run. In fact, the last time a Clear Card volume made it to the third week was in 2018, with volume 5.

Card Captor Sakura ~Clear Card arc~ #9 first week sales report

© CLAMP・Shigatsu Tsuitachi CO.,LTD. / 講談社

The ninth volume of Card Captor Sakura ~Clear Card arc~ debuted at the 3rd position in Oricon’s weekly ranking, with an estimate of 77,620 copies sold in its first week of sales. This is the second lowest first week sales for a Clear Card volume, only behind volume 2. This also happened last time, with volume 8, but unfortunately the numbers for volume 9 were even lower.

Special edition numbers aside and looking at regular edition numbers alone, volume 9 had a better performance than volume 8 (77,620, against 74,329 for volume 8 in its first week), but combined with the special edition (CD Drama part 2), volume 8 had a better first week.

These numbers are for the regular edition, only. Numbers for the special edition (Stationery set) are unknown as it did not appear on the ranking. Keep in mind that pre-orders and special edition sales might have affected these first week sales numbers.

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.

Let’s wait and see how it will perform on next week’s ranking. Hopefully this is not the last we’ve seen of volume 9.

Card Captor Sakura – Clear Card arc #9 cover

The official twitter account of Nakayoshi magazine tweeted yesterday a better look at the Card Captor Sakura – Clear Card arc volume 9 cover and a first look at the coffret-style stationery set that comes with the special edition.

I was a little confused at first with the announcement because I wasn’t sure how much of a makeup set that looked like a stationery set or how much of a stationery set that looked like a makeup set it would be. Apparently it is the later (it appears readers of Nakayoshi are not quite ready yet for makeup, …which is good?).

The new illustration from the can looks very adorable!

Both regular and special editions will be released on October 13.

You can pre-order it on Amazon.jp and CD Japan.
