Publisher Shuesha says the manga titled Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba touched 100 million copies, including a digital version, when the company published the manga’s 22 volume by Gotouge Koyohara.
This will be the eighth manga from Weekly Shonen Jump magazine to reach 100 million copies in circulation (not sales), after Kochikame, Dragon Ball, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, Slam Dunk, One Piece, Naruto, and Bleach. Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba has 40 million circulation after the 19th volume in February, 60 million after the 20th volume in May, and 80 million after the 21st volume in July.
The manga volume 21, published on July 3, has sold 71.618 million copies in Japan, with 80 million copies in circulation. That includes digital copies and the first 3 million copies for the 21st volume. The regular edition sold 1,191,086 copies in physical print, while the limited edition sold 850,091 copies in physical print, for a total of 2,041,177 copies sold within three days.
Shueisha revealed last November that Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba manga was the company’s second best-selling manga in 2019, second only to Oda Eiichiro’s One Piece manga.
