To find data, please use the Table of Contents

Regarding when you should expect to see this site updated, I’ll follow roughly this schedule:

Tuesday, 3-4AM EST (UTC-4/5) – Preliminary DVD30/50 + BD20/20 ranking, new post. This is very consistent, except around the holidays when Oricon skips a week.

Thursday, night EST – Full weekly DVD100 + BD100 ranking, editing previous post (so no bump). This can take until Friday; it depends when the data is released. Sometimes it’s not available at all on Thursdays, occasionally it even takes until the weekend, but Thursday is most common. Obviously if the initial ful list doesn’t come out until Friday, this would happen Friday evening instead. I usually get to it after I get home from work, whichever day it is.

Weekend, any time – Whole set of rankings updated as appropriate (seasonal vol 1s, yearly averages, yearly per-volume, series quick view, BD boxes), at some point over the weekend when I have time. This will go in a new post, with a summary of links to everything I updated that day. Lately I’ve been doing this every two weeks instead of weekly, mostly due to being tired and lazy.

I will also do some unscheduled posts if I just want to talk about something I’ve observed and or find interesting or noteworthy.

Mid-year rankings tend to come out in late June or early July. Full yearly rankings come out late January. Monthly rankings come out near the end of each month and go in the ranking summary posts.

General Discussion
Also, since I don’t see any reason to set up a forum just for sales discussion, I think we can use this post as a catch-all for any sales-related comments you have that don’t fit in one of the specific posts.

Comments on daily rankings, comments on preorder rankings, general questions, that sort of thing.

    Not that there’s much to see just yet, but the 2017 posts have been started in anticipation of next week’s first big rush of Winter Vol 1s:

    2017 Total Average Sales, TV/ONA
    2017 Total Sales by Volume
    2017 Winter Seasonal Vol 1 Rankings

      Oh, why you add ONA instead of OVA! OVA sell more and there are many OVA that has a good sales.

        I only specify “ONA” because some shows online stream weekly online rather than on TV. But otherwise, they’re the same thing as a weekly TV series. So it’s mostly just mentioned so that nobody comments “But ‘x’ only streamed online rather than on TV so it’s not TV series!”

        OVA are a completely different kind of thing, and not comparable to a TV/ONA series in terms of release model/sales expectations/etc. The only OVAs I cover are OVAs that are connected to a ONA/TV series. See the second table on the quick view page for those.
