I could be wrong, but it seems unlikely to me that volume 4 will make it to Oricon’s Top 50 next week.

I was half hoping that the broadcast of the TV Anime on NHK public channel would boost the sales a little and maybe even make the previous volumes to reappear on the ranking but alas, that didn’t happen.

We will still see volume 4 showing up for a 3rd, 4th and hopefully 5th week. Stay tuned.

The fourth volume of Card Captor Sakura ~Clear Card arc~ debutted at the 4th position in Oricon’s weekly ranking, with an estimate of 96,597 copies sold in its first week of sales.

The above numbers are for the regular edition, only. Sale numbers for the Special Edition (smartphone goods) are unknown.

At first, these number may seem low, but considering that the books were released on March 30, they only had three days of exposure on this ranking. Taking that into account, these are actually pretty good numbers for only three days. We should get a clearer idea of how volume 4 went by the next week sales report.
