It's probably because it includes a drama CD for what are apparently a few of the most popular characters.
We will also have to check back in 2-3 weeks and see if it ended up selling considerably more than previous volumes, or just modestly more. This could, to a degree, just reflect more front-loaded sales this time. Or perhaps better distribution, so less people have to wait a week or two to get it.
But I'll be very surprised if it's not the best selling volume so far regardless. This is just waaaay too much of a head start not to top v2's 23,675. It could easily pass that just in wk2. Only needs 3.6k and it's never done less than 4.1k in a wk2. Last time wk2 was 5.4k.
