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.

    Hello.
    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.

        • something something says:

          Oricon only publishes a very small portion of their weekly data on their website. They actually track far more than that, so that’s why we have to rely on leaks from their paid services (Youtaiju and Biz).
