The Kimetsu sales train doesn't want to stop. It now has 80 million copies in circulation clearing its 60 million in circulation it had in May.
Also with this, it has passed Hunter x Hunter circulation of 78 million and is now part of the top 10 highest circulation number in Weekly shonen jump (Current top 10:ONE PIECE, DRAGON BALL, Naruto, SLAM DUNK, Kochikame, Bleach, Jo Jo's, Hokuto no Ken, Kimetsu no Yaiba and Captain Tsubasa.)
To understand how crazy this is, see this helpful chart◊ to see how quickly it reached its dizzying heights.

I will never get that, but good for the author for being so successful.
at this point I pretend that Dai hits the 100.000 copies after the anime airs
The great Kimetsu sales wall sure is annoying if you wanna check the sales of lesser series.
I'm surprised Jump allowed them to end the series instead of milking it endlessly for years, not sure if they just put their foot down hard or whatever, but I genuinely respect that.
Well the series was already well in its final arc just when it hit big so at that point there wasn't much that could be done to naturally extend it.
Probably because they have already planned the ending of the manga before the booming in popularity, plus, the fact the manga was at its ending is another factor in booming the sales along with the animated adaptation
And I’m sure they’d rather keep the author’s goodwilll so they’ll stay with Jump for future works.
For some strange reason, the simulrelease clocks changed to say the next Jump chapters are coming out today at 12 EST instead of Sunday. This does match the in-chapter notes from last week saying the next chapter would be on the 26th, not the 28th, which I assumed were a typo.
Anyone know what’s up? Does Jump just come out on Saturday this week for some reason?

Yeah, that's exactly it.
Do we know why?
Hard-Boiled Cop and Dolphin is mildly amusing buddy cop stuff with an absurdist twist.
And Time Paradox Ghostwriter introduces a new plot twist you might have seen coming. Future Aino is dead, so there's no more future White Knight to copy from!
I hope the third chapter of Ayakashi Triangle is more of a watermark for sexual content than where it goes all the time, though seven pages of nudity is still better than pantyshots.
Interesting that it's already shifted from Shirogane being an active antagonist to him being captured and Matsuri trying to "tame" him. I sort of hoped the previous status quo would develop more, though maybe Matsuri's goal of reversing his transformation will be more of an overarching background plot to other things.
Woah, didn't expect it to come out early! And I missed a bunch of chapters last week too.
Anyway, issue 30!

Next week, new series called Boku to Roboko by Miyazaki Shuuhei and color page for Act-age.
Whooo 1st MHA has reached the #1 spot in a while.
Also huh, Moriking & Bone Collection are in the middle spots, pretty decent.
Though that new series, rather weird timing to have a new comic about cops.
Also seems like Japanese readers didn't really dig the Sawako Rizu arc in We Never Learn.
Makes sense. Never have I seen a series of events dedicated to a single ship in a manga do less to sell that ship...
Meanwhile, the Fumino and Uruka arcs actually focus on their central relationships, and in Fumino's case actually demonstrates why he'd pick her over the other girls. Kinda sells my suspicion that the author was really divided between Uruka and Fumino, and just threw in the other three as a fan-appeasing bonus...
Well, without TPN and Kny, it's just OP, MHA and Dr. Stone that rank high consistently.
Undead Unluck dropped. That's... that's not good.
It's still around the middle, that doesn't mean much.
Indeed. Series in the middle juggle places all the time.
Reading Magu-chan, I don't know whether to think of his voice as being super-deep or loud, but high-pitched a la Bill Cipher.
I hear Plankton.
