The ride of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba seems endless. The manga first beat ONE PIECE in 2019 in the Oricon ranking for the best-selling series, while in this first half of 2020 it broke other records of what has always been the king of the manga. In the past few days, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba has continued to sell.
His weeks of absolute domination of the rankings allowed him to break first the barrier of one million by volume, then that of two million. Probably never anyone would have expected i early volumes of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba exceeded 3 million, yet the manga has succeeded.
This is confirmed by the Oricon ranking from last week which testifies how the first volume of Demon Slayer has sold 3,083,182 total copies, followed by the second with 3.001.275. Surprisingly, the eighth tankobon also reaches three million with 3,000,059 copies sold, while it will be enough to wait for next week to see the other 15 volumes pass this new milestone.
The impression is Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba will continue to sell for a long time and with the film coming up at the end of the year it is not unlikely to see the first volumes even at 4 million, which never happened in the history of the Oricon charts.
