Card Captor Sakura ~Clear Card arc~ #11 third week sales report

The eleventh volume of Card Captor Sakura ~Clear Card arc~ dropped to the 49th position in Oricon’s weekly ranking, with an estimate of 12,147 copies sold in its third week of sales for the regular edition. The Special Edition (Mini Sakura Costume) also didn’t make it to the ranking this time, like last week.

Combining the numbers of the regular and special editions together and the three weeks since it’s been on sale, volume 11 sold an estimate of 116,381 copies overall.

The last time a Clear Card volume made it to the 3rd week was with volume 5. There may have been other volumes which also made it, but I couldn’t track those because the free version of Oricon only shows up to the top 30.

It’s very nice that volume 11 is still showing up in the top 50, but unfortunately these figures are the lowest overall sales by the third week for a Clear Card volume (again, based on the data I could find). In other words, all previous 10 volumes which made it to the third week had bigger figures by their third week of sales.

However, it does seem like the sales are showing a shy but growing sign. This is probably a reflection of the way the story is moving towards some sort of climax.

It is worth mentioning that Oricon only takes into account a certain number of shops and preorders are likely not taken into account. These numbers are only an estimate and it’s possible that the real figures are higher than these.

Card Captor Sakura ~Clear Card arc~ #11 second week sales report

The eleventh volume of Card Captor Sakura ~Clear Card arc~ dropped to the 18th position in Oricon’s weekly ranking, with an estimate of 27,044 copies sold in its second week of sales for the regular edition. This time, the Special Edition (Mini Sakura Costume) didn’t make it to the ranking.

So far, combining the numbers of the regular and special editions together and the two weeks since it’s been on sale, volume 11 sold an estimate of 104,234 copies overall.

While it’s nice that volume 11 is still showing up in the top 30, unfortunately these figures are the lowest overall sales by the second week for a Clear Card volume. In other words, all previous 10 volume had bigger figures by their second week of sales.

It is worth mentioning that Oricon only takes into account a certain number of shops and preorders are likely not taken into account. These numbers are only an estimate and it’s possible that the real figures are higher than these.

Card Captor Sakura ~Clear Card arc~ #11 first week sales report

The eleventh volume of Card Captor Sakura ~Clear Card arc~ debuted at the 7th position in Oricon’s weekly ranking, with an estimate of 60,337 copies sold in its first week of sales for the regular edition.  The Special Edition (Mini Sakura Costume) debuted at the 33th position, with an estimate of 16,853 copies sold. Combining the numbers of the regular and special editions together, it sold an estimate of 77,190 copies in its release week.

Since volume 5, the first week sales of Clear Card arc have consistently been lower than its previous volume, but the good news is: that was not the case with volume 11.

The overall first week sales of volume 11 were better than volume 10, which sold an estimate of 75,258 copies. It’s not a big difference, but it’s an improvement and something that didn’t happen since volume 5. When looking at the regular and special editions individually, the regular edition numbers for volume 11 (60,337) were better than volume 10 (54,943) but the same can’t be said about the Special Edition — 20,315 for volume 10 vs 16,853 for volume 11.

It’s also worth mentioning that while it landed in the 7th position, the first 6 titles are not published by Kodansha. Meaning Card Captor Sakura ~Clear Card arc~ volume 11 was this week’s most sold title published by Kodansha.

It is worth mentioning that Oricon only takes into account a certain number of shops and preorders are likely not taken into account. These numbers are only an estimate and it’s possible that the real figures are higher than these.

Really nice to see some shy, but noticeable improvement in sales!

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 11.
