The second volume of Card Captor Sakura ~Clear Card arc~ dropped to the 13th position in Oricon’s weekly ranking, with an estimate of 56,868 copies sold in its third week of sales and an accumulated overall sales of 287,409 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 (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.

On its seventh week after its release, Card Captor Sakura ~Clear Card arc~ #1 fell to the 39th place in Oricon’s weekly ranking, selling an estimate of 14,574 copies.

The above numbers are for the regular edition. The Special Edition (mangaka set) did not appear in this week’s ranking.

Combining the sales for both versions, Card Captor Sakura ~Clear Card arc~ #1 sold an impressive estimate of 419,041 copies overall so far!

It is unlikely that CCS Clear Card #1 will appear in next week’s ranking, but I hope I’m wrong. That doesn’t mean that it will stop selling, of course. It will keep selling, just not enough to appear in Oricon’s weekly top 50. Considering that it will keep selling during the next few weeks, and that we don’t know the limited edition’s numbers, it’s safe to assume that it will soon break the 500.000 mark. It’s also always worth mentioning that although Oricon is the most trustworthy and relevant ranking chart that we know of these days, most but not all bookstores and shops are covered by it, so that the numbers we have are only an estimate and it’s likely that it sold more than this.

Seven weeks is undoubtedly a long run, the longest run of a CLAMP manga since I started taking accounts of sales performance. I’m looking forward to see how the upcoming volumes will perform once they are release, and it’ll be fun to compare it with the previous volumes.

Sakura keeps conjuring her magic in Oricon’s charts!

Now on to its sixth week, Card Captor Sakura ~Clear Card arc~ #1 climbed 3 positions in comparison to last week, landing on the 26th place in Oricon’s weekly ranking!

The above numbers are for the regular edition. The Special Edition (mangaka set) did not appear in this week’s ranking.

Combining the sales for both versions, Card Captor Sakura ~Clear Card arc~ #1 sold an estimate of 404,467 copies overall so far!

Congratulations for CLAMP and Card Captor Sakura for breaking the 400.000 mark in 6 weeks!

Card Captor Sakura ~Clear Card arc~ volume 1 is officially doing well in the rankings! On its fifth week, not only the book climbed to the 29th position, but it also sold more copies than the previous two weeks!

An estimate of 34,764 copies were sold in the past week — 1.282 more than last week.

The above numbers are for the regular edition. The Special Edition (mangaka set) did not appear in this week’s ranking.

Combining the sales for both versions, Card Captor Sakura ~Clear Card arc~ #1 sold an estimate of 380,573 copies overall so far.

The sales increase might be explained by the holidays, or maybe because Card Captor Sakura might just have consistent sales over the weeks.

It’s been fun to watch Card Captor Sakura‘s long run, and let’s keep our fingers crossed for it to break the mark of 400.000 copies sold next week!

Although it dropped to the 34th position in Oricon’s weekly ranking, the first volume of Card Captor Sakura ~Clear Card arc~ managed to sell more copies than the previous week! On its fouth week of sales, it sold 33,482 copies sold in its second week of sales — 688 more than last week, completely surpassing my own estimates! That shows that Card Captor Sakura is having a good performance in the long run.

The above numbers are for the regular edition. The Special Edition (mangaka set) did not appear in this week’s ranking.

Combining the sales for both versions, Card Captor Sakura ~Clear Card arc~ #1 sold an estimate of 345,809 copies overall so far.
