C76 Doujinshi Sales Rankings

comiket_76_r-c-complex_saki_doujinshi

Major otaku stores (Tora no Ana, Melonbooks, etc.) frequently display lists of their Top 10 bestselling doujinshi, but the most watched rankings are always the ones in the weeks following Comiket.

As Comiket 76 ended last week, there is the interesting opportunity to inspect these doujinshi rankings from three major Akihabara shops – Tora no Ana, Messe Sanoh and Melonbooks.

These rankings come via Akiba Hobby, which regularly keeps weekly records of such rankings.

These lists only apply to a specific brick and mortar store’s inventory (i.e., online sales excluded), and due to the underground nature of doujinshi publishing and the vagaries of the consignment system typically used to sell the books in these stores a huge discrepancy is obvious between the different store’s rankings, despite their relative proximity to each other.

Nonetheless, each of these stores have hundreds of different titles on hand at any given time, and their common customer base made up of the denizens of Akiba means these rankings should give some insight into C76 doujinshi are proving to be among the most popular now that all doujin stores are well stocked with books from the event.

The following lists are all from August 22 and are identified with the following syntax: Title [Circle] (Series)

Links to the circle’s websites are also provided where possible.
