Winter update:
Yurucamp v1 sells 11584/923, total 12,507. 21.0%/144.8% underestimated (high price penalty). Event ticket. I intentionally lowballed this one all season just to be safe, given its Amazon ranking was much higher than its ranking elsewhere. But this was certainly always a possibility, and it’s wonderful that it did so well. The high end estimate (without the penalty) was 13,964 and low end (with penalty) was 9,949 so this managed to come in between the two, as is standard for high price items. Every once in a great, great while, something good happens with anime sales.

Yorimoi v1 sells 7029/599, total 7,628. 3.1% under/34.2% overestimated. Event ticket. Even more than Yurucamp, this is what makes me happiest this season. One of my absolute all time favorite shows. It’s facing huge stock issues as well, so this number might climb to 9k by wk3. Amazon restocked and then immediately sold out on 3/30, while HMV got a short restock in, but it’s out of stock everywhere again. Amazon restocks on Thursday, hopefully others will restock this week as well.

Takagi-san v1 sells 3928/1072, total 5,000. 33.1%/12.9% overestimated. It had four different Amazon exclusives so I figured it would be overestimated.

Ryuuou v1 sells 2,394. BD-only release. 5.4% overestimated. Event ticket.

Slow Start v1 sells 1632/282, total 1,914. 16.0% under/34.6% overestimated. Event ticket. It’s no Yurucamp or Yorimoi, but a chance at 2k wk2 is better than I expected, at least.

Death March v1 sells 1,507 BDs, DVDs do not rank. 4.4% overestimated.

Houshin Engi v1 sells 729/628, total 1,357. 12.8% under/15.2% overestimated. Event ticket.

Koizumi-san v1 sells 906/151, total 1,057.87.6%/135.9% underestimated (high price penalty).

Mitsuboshi Colors v1 sells 604 BDs, DVDs do not rank. 28.9% overestimated. Event ticket.

Killing Bites v1 sells 231 as a BD-only release. 30.8% overestimated.

Pop Team Epic v3, final volume, sells 4289/820, total 5,109. Series average: 5,623.

Idolish7 v2 adds 3123/3559, total 27,428.

Zoku Tourabu v1 adds 287 DVDs, total 11,425.

Mahoyome v2 adds 778, total 6,550.

Gakuen Babysitters v1 adds 584 DVDs, total 2,228.

 
Fall update:
Shokugeki no Souma s3 sells 412 DVDs, BDs in the full list. 35.4% overestimated. One-shot box, so Series average: 412. It’s called box 1, but it contains all 12 eps of the Fall season, and the Spring season (Toutsuki Ressha-hen) will presumably be box 2 whenever that is solicited and released.

Omiai Aite sells 147/151, total 298. One-shot release, so Series average: 298. I’d never heard of this but it seems to be another short quasi-porn show like the hentai monk thing from last year. I guess this one wasn’t quite porn enough to be excluded from Oricon’s database.

Imas SideM v4 sells 8758/2133, total 10,891. First non-ticket volume, so the drop was inevitable. Might end up with about a 14k average?

Osomatsu-san s2 v4 sells 4177/3883, total 8,060.

Gintama Porori v3 sells 1534/1504, total 3,038.

Blend S v4 sells 1875/472, total 2,347.

Shoshuryo v3, final volume, sells 2,250 BDs, DVDs do not rank. Series average: 2,525.

Just Because v4 sells 1,658 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Juuni Taisen v4 sells 768/579, total 1,347.

Konohana v4, final volume, sells 1,285 BDs, DVDs do not rank. Series average: 1,236.

WUG Shin Shou v2 sells 1,155 as a BD-only release.

Code:Realize v4 sells 493/386, total 879.

Sho-bitch v4 sells 501 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Dynamic Chord v2, final volume, sells 361 DVDs, BDs in the full list (maybe?). Event ticket. Series average: 573.

LL Sunshine s2 v4 adds 6188, total 34,973.

 
Past seasons:
Fate/Apocrypha v2, final volume, sells 5,263 as a BD-only release. Series average: 5,994.

Guruguru 2017 v6, final volume, sells 724 BDs, DVDs do not rank. Series average: 864.

Ballroom v5 sells 666 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Granblue v6 adds 323 DVDs, total 49,213.
v7, final volume, adds 435 DVDs, total 52,834.
Series average: 48,639.

 
OVAs, Movies, Boxsets etc:
Shinmai Maou Departures OVA sells 2773/563, total 3,336.

Full Metal Panic Recap Movie 2 sells 1,863 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

HS DxD s3 BD Box sells 1,011.

Zero no Tsukaima BD Box sells 1,000. Contains all four seasons.

Puchimas s1 BD Box sells 594.
s2 BD Box sells 636.

Yamasusu s2 BD Box sells 612.

Garupan Finale I adds 5657/872, total 61,905. Decent wk2 at more than 10% of wk1. Will we get another crazy Garupan tail though?

    More SHINY DAYS when? I need another dose of SHINY DAYS.

    >Yorimoi v1 sells 7029/599, total 7,628. 3.1% under/34.2% overestimated. Event ticket.
    Still an amazing performance considering I expected it to flop. Nice to see my AOTS selling well. While I don’t think it will ever get a S2, I hope at least for an OVA in the future.

    >Slow Start v1 sells 1632/282, total 1,914. 16.0% under/34.6% overestimated. Event ticket.
    Lived up to the name I see.

    >2018/03/28 Ramen Daisuki Koizumi-san v1 (906?)
    Mixed feelings about this. On one hand, I don’t think the show was very good since the characters felt too one-note. On the other hand, I really adored the OP, the ED, and the OST.

  2. Wagner says:

    I wonder if stocking issues can help us better estimate the percentage sales captured by Oricon? Like if most stock limited disks clusters arounf multiples of 7k, it implies total actual sales at multiple of 10k. That seems like a good assumption for production run for a decently projected series, and would give us an estimated Oricon reach of around 70%.

    • something something says:

      Unfortunately I don’t think we’d be able to tell. Shows with notable stock issues come in all shapes and sizes, from tens of thousands to sub-5k titles. And they’re not necessarily printing discs in clean 10k batches. Could be 1k batches for example, meaning 9k or 11k were printed at first. The first printing isn’t going to be a set number, it’s going to be heavily influenced by how many preorders they get (up until a cutoff point of course, and clearly Yorimoi’s late success blew past the initial estimate). Also, we know at least two shipments of Yorimoi went out, at least to Amazon, last week. One for the initial release, and a restock on March 30.

      The only way we can truly compare Oricon and real sales is when publishers outright tell us their shipment numbers. That’s very rare, traditionally only happens with successful shows (publishers don’t brag about middling results) and the coverage gaps vary quite a lot. The data points we’re aware of so far can be found here: Oricon / Distributor Comparisons

  3. Vuita says:

    Dynamic Chord v2, final volume, sells 386

    It is 381 not 386

  4. BlackPoint says:

    11,584 11,584 1 Yurucamp v1

    This is simply an amazing thing to see, cuz i would have never imagined it to be able to sell that much, cuz so far most of this type of show sell in range of 2-5k max so seeing a 11k 1st week is simply amazing i hope it can keep it up above 10k average so we can perhaps get another season ! :)

    • BlackPoint says:

      Forgot to mention but this aswell
      7,029 7,029 1 Sora yori mo Tooi Basho v1

      Simply great to see thoose numbers another one of thoose underrated shows from winter that were an amazing watch.

      • Mami Kawada Lover says:

        Is YoriMoi really underrated though? It’s really popular in Japan (more popular there than shows like Devilman even), and even in Western sites it was one of the more discussed shows of the season.

        • something something says:

          I wouldn’t call it underrated so much as a sleeper hit that gained steam as it went along. It seems to be quite well regarded, even internationally. MAL currently has it as the #59 anime of all time, and while MAL ratings are problematic as heck and shouldn’t be taken too seriously, that’s at least a vague affirmation that people who watched it really liked it. As for Japan, I’ve seen it perform well in random likability and viewer retention surveys that have floated around, unscientific as those may be. And the sales speak for themselves.

          Again, all these data points are really iffy and come with huge margins of error, but at least from a thousand foot view, it’s fair to say 1) it’s regarded very positively and 2) it got there slowly, building up fans along the way. Which makes sense since it’s original.

    • something something says:

      Even 5k has traditionally almost-guaranteed sequels for Kirara series (not that disc sales alone decide it, but that’s just been the trend) so a Yurucamp sequel is incredibly likely. It just needs to build up enough material, though with the way the manga has sped up its publishing pace, that may only take a year.

      • hispaniafer says:

        If 5k is almost guaranteed sequel for kirara series, how is 4k or 3k?

        • something something says:

          Not so much. If you go here (which I need to update but it’s reasonably current) and sort by column “Average” then look at “Has/Is Sequel”, you an see that everything above 5k has a TV sequel, except for A Channel (which only got an OVA). Meanwhile nothing below 5k got a sequel.

          This is coincidence more than anything – the sample size is very small – else but not bad to use as a ballpark.

  5. ExtraLight says:

    Woah even if Yuru Camp, Yorimori and Takagi-san is SoL anime which is underrated genre, they rank well and its so so nice. As i remember correctly @something said that 5k avarage best for SoL series. Also its a good proof that Japanesse audience sure interest in CGCT even if it dont have any relation with Music.

    • something something says:

      I wouldn’t call Yorimoi slice of life, but that aside, one or two shows isn’t a trend unfortunately. Slice of life is still very niche genre. Though yes, it does do well enough that we get a consistent trickle of shows at least, which is nice. Even nicer when one really breaks out like Yurucamp, vanishingly rare though that may be.

  6. AholePony says:

    Those Slow Start numbers are really interesting. If you take 2 other similar, recent, over-produced, moe series and compare. I’d believe you if you told me the exact same people keep buying them lol. Hey, if this is enough to have one show like this per year made with way above average animation and cute yuri-antics…. then we truly are living in the golden age of anime lol.

    Hinako Note 2017 Spring 1,346
    Sansha Sanyou 2016 Spring 2,140
    Slow Start 2018 Winter 1,914 (1-vol)

  7. Rrr says:

    It’s great to see Yurucamp and Yorimoi doing very well in sales.
    Yorimoi sales are higher than I expected (was expected around 5k~6k) and might be more. Hope it will hit 9k~10k.

    On the other hand. Mitsuboshi Colors sale is bad than I expected (was expected around +-1.2k and hope it will hit 2k) even with the event ticket still very low. I love this show (well, I love Yorimoi and Yurucamp too) but the chance it will get SS2 just collapse.

  8. Anime9001 says:

    Really glad to see Yorimori doing so well! That was easily AOTS for me. That show felt nearly flawless. Glad to see Yuru Camp doing so good as well, but it didn’t hit me nearly as hard as Universe did. Out of the shows that did well though it’s actually Takagi-san that I’m curious if we’ll get a second season or not for. There were so many people talking about a specific chapter they wanted animated in the manga, and now I’m not sure if I’ll ever see it unless I read through the manga myself.

    The show I’m really disappointed to see the results for though is Killing Bites. I feel that almost no one watched it because they took one glance at it and assumed it would be trash and never gave it a chance. The show was very self-aware of its trashy appearance and rolled with it, having quite strong character writing, script writing, direction, and choreography. I watched over 15 shows last season, and Killing Bites was probably in my top 3.

  9. cyssa says:

    I’m really really happy to see Yorimoi and Yurucamp doing so well! It has been a while since I felt this way with a anime that I liked. Such heartwarming stories, they made me feel really well all the time while I was watching!

  10. Flushme says:

    So how should we judge the Garupan sales? They’re far below the first movie’s sales, but technically it’s a season two. With the 6 releases planned and no release schedule published, I really don’t know where the series is going.
    Also I’m well aware movies usually sell more than TV series, but where does this come from? What’s the point in buying a movie disc of which you didn’t buy the TV disc except for the higher production value? Than again, the Garupan Movie was just a beast in sales, I really don’t know how to judge the series anymore. Is this current installment a success or a failure in terms of the series’ standards?

    • something something says:

      “So how should we judge the Garupan sales?”
      I’m thinking of them as an OVA series with a significant theatrical screening, like Gundam Unicorn. So I’d recommend comparing it to the Anzio OVA, but with slightly higher expectations. That one started at 38,737 and through a crazy long tail (105 weeks!) eventually got to 69,044. Finale I started at 55,376 and will pass Anzio before too long. Assuming it stays north of a 50k average across six 50 minute OVA-film-type-things, that’s pretty outstanding all things considered. Especially if they keep pulling in about half a billion yen in box office each.

      “I’m well aware movies usually sell more than TV series, but where does this come from?”
      Price difference. You don’t need to own a ¥42,000 TV series to buy a ¥9000 movie, you just (presumably) need to have seen it. It’s a way to own a bit of the franchise that’s not nearly so pricey.

  11. Nobody says:

    >2018/03/28 Mitsuboshi Colors v1 (604?)

    This is sad; the show deserved better. I wonder if there was anything specific that killed it. I imagine being in the same season as other great shows doesn’t help – I certainly didn’t have any cash left over for it. Then there were those slideshow episodes…

  12. Hart says:

    Really glad for Yuru and Yori. My top 2 of winter is doing great.

    @something What’s your expectation for Citrus and Violet? Citrus 2k Violet 8k?

    • something something says:

      Closer to 1k for Citrus, but it depends on whether the DVDs rank. Thankfully discs are of only minor importnace for it. And yes I guess 7-9k is the ballpark for VEG, if we can assume its rankings at Animate will result in it being underestimated.

  13. something something says:

    Updated with the full list.

    Yuru Camp and Yorimoi!! I can’t be most happy
