The Oricon Japan website compiled the data from the first week of sales of volume 5 of the manga in Japan. It’s been available since March 2, 2018, and this book had the second-best debut of the series so far, ranking third in the top 50 most sold manga in Japan in the week of February 26 to March 4, 2018, with up to 121,293 copies.

Although volume 5 increases the position in the ranking, the total is right below the 150,889 copies of volume 4 sold in its debut. But considering that volume 5 still sold 121,000 copies in just two days (and volume 4 almost 151,000 in three days) I can confirm the positive trend conquered by the manga, which now consolidates the over one hundred thousand copies since the first week. Let’s look at the details.
