2014 Spring 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!

Notes
Sales number includes includes estimates of DVDs based on >100 ranking lists or other sources. Generally only included if believed accurate within 100 copies.
Partial Ranking means a release came out on more than one video format, but only one of the two ranked.
Large Vol. 2 Drop? designates any titles that dropped by 30% or more from Vol. 1 to Vol. 2. This is used to indicate that you should take caution in evaluating the success of the show purely on the first volume’s sales.

    You forgot to add Dragonar numbers.

    Should Mekaku count as large vol.2 drop?

    • something something says:

      I define large as 30%. Currently it’s down 35.14% but that’s only because v1 has three weeks to v2’s one. I’m guessing it’ll end up… I dunno, 25% down?

      I only just noticed, but v1-2 came with an event ticket. v3+ do not, so v3 in two weeks will become a pretty telling sales figure!
