2019 Fall Vol 1 Rankings
Please note: Volume 1 sales are not the best, or even a particularly good, way to evaluate a series’ performance. Sometimes one of two formats doesn’t rank in volume 1, but ranks in a later volume. Often times volume 1 sales are inflated with bonuses like event tickets or bundled manga, etc. Always, always use the average sales when evaluating anime, not volume 1 sales. I only provide these because it takes many months before we have a final average and people like to be able to ballpark a season early on. Just be intelligent about it!

    Just a question: for Hoshiai no Sora, will the sales be tracked by Oricon?

    • something something says:

      I don’t see it listed in their database yet, so probably not. Store exclusives often don’t get tracked.

      • Avatar Arukasa says:

        Oh, ok. Thank you for your reply. As Animate cooperates with Oricon, I thought that we may have some information but if not, I don’t see how to know about it.

        • something something says:

          Yep they do report, but for some reason when they’re the only major retailer offering a title, we don’t necessarily get numbers (but it’s not guaranteed one way or the other). I recall this being a big thing when it came to, say, Utapri concert discs as well.

    Were did you get the number of sales for Shinchou Yuusha: Kono Yuusha ga Ore Tueee Kuse ni Shinchou Sugiru?

    • something something says:

      All of the data (for every show, not just this one) comes from leaks of Oricon’s sales estimates. It sold 581 BDs (#13 on the animation charts for the week) and 102 BDs (the standard leaks from outside the top 50 posted on 5ch).

      • Avatar sifadil says:

        Thanks for answering. Why ‘leaks’? aren’t the sales estimates available on Oricon’s website? I did find the weekly top 10 there.
        Also, thanks for writing the FAQ. I read some parts of it and I’m starting to get the whole picture.
