(UPDATE: Please see http://www.someanithing.com/4822 for the -FINAL- full data export.)

Now that after about six weeks and about 150 hours I’ve finally checked every single disc in both the DVD (12,786 at last scrape) and BD (3,578) lists, it’s time to take stock of what the extended rankings have told us. But first I’ll summarize what this data is and how it’s used. This will be a bit long, but I swear I’m attempting to keep it short!

 

Where does this data come from?
Oricon aligns people (musicians, authors, directors, actors, companies) to the media they cover. Each of these people or companies gets a profile page, which includes a ranking of all their media by most to least sales. For example, the ranking page for Marble. Luckily for us, nearly all of the discs Oricon tracks under “animation” are also assigned to an entity named “アニメーション” (animation). So when you look at Animation’s profile, you see the above-mentioned 12,786 DVDs and 3,578 BDs (at the time of writing), all arranged in sales order. This number will increase shortly after I write this as the latest week’s releases are added.

[Heh, it increased before I even finished proofing this post, but you get the point. I download and merge in the new data on Thursdays/Fridays after the full weekly ranking Top 100s come out, not on Wednesdays. Having the official top 100 data points makes updating the extended ranking list more accurate.]

 

How do we make use of this?
You’ll have noticed that while we have rankings, we have no sales numbers. But we already know tons of sales numbers, right? So if you can write or find a tool to scrape the data off of every ranking page and get it into a nice clean list, it’s just a matter of starting from the bottom, finding the lowest-selling disc you know the sales for (cross-referencing against any and all available sources), recording its sales number, and working your way up from there to the top. There are various complications and factors to take into consideration I don’t need to get into, but the general idea is simple enough. It just takes (a lot of) time, hence why I’m only now finishing this after starting so long ago. And it takes a good system to make sure the data can be re-downloaded every week and merged in without having to start over each time.

Not every disc has full (or any) sales data available, of course, which is the point of checking the extended rankings. In this case, we simply take the closest sales milestone that’s below the disc in question. Take for example Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru v1 DVD, which did not make the weekly top 100 and would normally go unranked. When I check the data I’ve scraped, I see the following:

Don’t worry about what all the columns are for now, just note that 結城友奈は勇者である1 is between 銀河機攻隊 マジェスティックプリンス VOL.1 and アニメ「エスパー魔美」アニバーサリーDVD-BOX. Those two releases did rank, with Majepri providing an upper limit on Yuyuyu’s sales of 540 and Esper Mami providing a lower limit of 539. This means any title between the two sold either 539 or 540. I take the lower limit at all times to stay on the safe side. Therefore, we now know with very high accuracy what Yuyuyu’s v1 DVD sold. That data would have been lost to us otherwise.

Regarding the colors, I ended up with three main categories:
• Green means I’m able to identify a sales number from known data. These are the milestones.
• Purple means I can’t identify a sales number, but can get an estimate based on next closest lower green release. If it’s a title relevant to the kind of stuff I track, purple.
• Peach means I can’t identify a number, but it’s not the kind of release I track anyway so I skip it and move on.

 

How much of a difference did this data make?
I’ve decided to go about this by taking a snapshot of the Quick View page before I started capturing this data and comparing it to what the averages look like now. I’ve removed any series that’s released a new disc since 2014-12-20, the last update prior to this data taking effect, because their change would be more heavily influenced by the new volume than by the extended ranking data, in most cases.

Below I list each series with previous average, new average, how many units the average changed by, and what percentage increase or decrease that is.
PNR means “Previously Not Ranked”.

Only just now noticed High School DxD hit 10k too. Added to the list!

Biggest gain from being unranked
Ragnarok the Animation went from 0/9 volumes ranking to 8/9 ranking and averaging 1,255.

Biggest average unit gain
D.C. ~Da Capo~ gained 1,591 average units, or 6,364 total discs over the four volumes. Some other shows gained more total discs, but they also had more volumes so it’s not as impressive.

Biggest average unit loss
Kuuchuu Buranko fell by 824 average units. Before the extended ranking data, all we had data for was one BD volume and one DVD volume. The DVD volume happened to be v1, which sold roughly twice or more than any other individual volume. When the other (much lower) volumes were recorded, that pulled the average down considerably.
If you sort the list you’ll see Full Metal Panic first, but this is misleading. It dropped not because it lost discs, but because the method of calculation changed. Before the extended rankings, REs were rare, and I handled them case by case. For FMP I used LE Avg + RE Avg. Now I’m just adding RE+LE on a per volume basis where they rank and thus FMP only gets its RE data for the three ranked volumes, not averaged out across all 12. This causes a real decline in the listed average, but it also lets me be more consistent and not simply assume the other REs sold as much as the three that ranked.

Biggest average percentage gain
Cobra the Animation (2010) increased by 265%. This is because only 2/7 BD volumes and 0/7 DVDs ranked previously, while the extended ranking added data for all DVDS and two more of the BDs.
It’s unsurprising that the list of biggest percent increases would be dominated by titles that previously ranked in one format and now rank in both. Easy to double sales when that happens. The best percentage increase without simply adding data for a second format is Ayakashi (怪) (not to be confused with another show named Ayakashi, spelled in katakana). It increased by 60.6%. The circumstance of this one is quite unusual, and I describe it in more detail here.

Biggest average percentage loss
Genji Monogatari Sennenki dropped by 38%. Previously only v1 ranked, and its sales were considerably above v2-4 sales (range 416-500 vs v1’s 922).

 

How many discs were added, across all releases?
This is actually impossible to say. Where data was in the the extended rankings, I marked the cell purple. I can tally up all the purple cells and come to a number, but a large percentage aren’t strictly speaking new. I record two types of data: data from the normal weekly rankings, and data from additional sources, including monthly, mid-year, and yearly rankings. When I encountered a disc in the extended ranking that already had “additional” data, I still marked the cell purple just to simplify my data collection in a whole bunch of ways and get this done in “only” six weeks instead of twelve or more.

This means when it comes to additional (outside of normal weekly ranking) data I can’t distinguish “entirely from extended rankings” from “mix of extended and previously known” from “entirely previously known”.

I can say that the sum of all purple cells is 4,337,061 across 6,132 discs. But due to the caveats above the amount added purely from the extended ranking data, not just in addition to normal weekly ranking data but also in addition to even monthly and yearly rankings, is definitely smaller. Probably less than half. Even if I’m being conservative with my estimate though, I’d bet this extended ranking exercise has still added at least a million additional discs of sales data to my spreadsheet across thousands of discs.

I guess it was worth it!

[A final disclaimer: I’m sure there’s no way in hell I got through countless hours and hundreds of thousands (at least) of clicks and keystrokes and cross-referencing multiple sources without making some mistakes here and there. I am, unfortunately, human. I do think I would have noticed any very serious typos, but when I’m manually maintaining an absurdly large spreadsheet, “shit happens”! Hopefully if there’s anything egregious (I don’t think so based on the lack of any huge shifts in averages) it’ll be caught, in time.]

    Gakuen Utopia Manabi Straight! 2007 Winter 2,436 ufotable manga
    So Manabi average line is 2k4 now …

    • Avatar Ejc says:

      No, the Manabi Line was always based on its Vol.1 sales, not its average (which was 2,319).

      Now looking at the extended list… its Vol.1 sales is somewhere between 3,400 and 3,407.

      ○がくえんゆーとぴあ まなびストレート! 【全7巻】

      06巻 1,992 07.09.05
      07巻 2,210 07.10.10

      However, the Manabi Line is now a past tradition of 2ch, it was something that was believed, not proven to be absolutely correct. The Manabi Line is now probably most useful as one of the separators of anime titles in then Vol.1 lists (similar to the 10k line, which is denoted as “hit status” in Japan, but not actually applicable to all anime titles).

      • Avatar moonnya says:

        So 3k4 first vol now ? Pretty high it seems.
        And also I remember Jmal said that there were a lot of miss sale in 2007 so its anime point would be much higher if its tracked in recent years, right ?

        • Avatar Ejc says:

          Yeah, from the DVD extended ranking, and we know the sales of rank 4,288 and 4,293.

          Oricon has been counting all DVD sales in the weekly Top 300 since 2003, so it’s probably not as applicable to Manabi Straight, since all releases were on DVD. However, that could be true on BD, as the Top 300 thresholds can get crazy low in some weeks, so possibly Manabi Straight could’ve gotten a slightly longer tail if it was released recently rather than 2007 (the beginning of the major move to BD was around 2009 I think).
