2016 Summer 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
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.

Season-specific notes
D.Gray-man Hallow has had its home video release indefinitely delayed, which is basically like saying cancelled unless something changes.

Vol. 1 Unranked, Later Vol. Ranked

    Hitori no Shita: The Outcast isnt listed, is it not getting a release? (probably also wondering about the others ones we keep getting from Tencent based works, like Fall’s Bloodivores for example)

    • something something says:

      Some kind of limited exclusive release only maybe? No listings for it at my three main sources: Amazon, Rakuten, Kinokuniya.
