What You Need to Know:
- Kimetsu no Yaiba, better known as Demon Slayer in the west, continues to slice its competitors off the Oricon weekly comic charts, as the month of February shows that Tanjirou and Nezuko own the throne once again. Not just the throne but the entire castle as each slot is taken by the dynamic duo.
- Before the end of February, Demon Slayer had already maintained its dominance in the comic charts, being the first series to completely secure all 10 spots for a consecutive 3 weeks, since Oricon started tracking data back in 2008. It's also the first to wrap its arms around all 19 spots, a remarkable feat for Koyoharu Gotouge and his beloved franchise.
- This monumentus lead has sprinkled through February 24 - March 1, with volume 19 unsurprisingly seating itself comfortably in the #1 slot, with the remaining sections being left to the peas--we mean other notable manga.
- In addition to its dominance on the charts manga-wise, its light-novel variants are starting to reap some benefits as well, with both the #1 and #2 spots taken for both Katahane no Chou and Shiawase no Hana respectively.
Incredible news! Gotouge-san must be smiling from ear to ear!
I know I would be! Congrats on the huge success!
