We probably won’t get quite as much information this year as last with our Biz leaks source gone, but a good chunk of the mid-year ranking data is up on Youtaiju, and thus we have access. The full yearly lists will probably be much harder hit. Most likely what we’ll lose here compared to last year is the Animation-only DVD Top 50 (only have top 30), All-Genre BD Top 100 (only have top 50), Animation-only BD Top 50 (only have 30)

 
2018 Mid-year Ranking by Volume
• The source for all the following data is Oricon Youtaiju.
• This covers the week of 2015/12/11 (12/25付) through the week of 2017/06/04 (12/18付).
• If the release is one I track, the amounts added over the last known number in parentheses.
• (n/a) means we have data that is more recent than or equal to what the yearly list has as of its cutoff, so there’s either nothing to add, or the current number is higher than the one listed here.
• The first number is the ranking within the Animation category, the second is among all discs.
• Some of the additions below have zero affect on the series’ average, because we already had more recent data that what is covered here.

TV Series

267,543 Love Live! Sunshine!! 2nd Season
• Previously known sales: 265,678 = 266,072 v1-7wk3
• Addition: 1,865
• Average: 44,345 → 44,612
• Note: Because we already have full coverage of this from the per-volume numbers and this addition is too small to be concert-related at all, these extra discs have to be from the RE version (so about 266/vol for those).

103,247 IDOLiSH7
• Previously known sales: 102,089 = 102,089 v1-4wk3
• Addition: 1,158
• Average: 25,522 → 25,688

96,512 THE IDOLM@STER SideM
• Previously known sales: 92,786 = 92,786 v1-6wk2
• Addition: 3,726
• Average: 15,464 → 15,997

67,694 Osomatsu-san Season 2
• Previously known sales: 61,823 = 61,823 v1-6wk2
• Addition: 5,871
• Average: 10,304 → 11,038

66,607 Granblue Fantasy The Animation
• Previously known sales: 50,673 = 368,167 v1-7 through the week of 6/04, minus the 317,494 of the 2017 full-year list
• Addition: 15,934
• Average: 52,811 → 55,087
• Note: This is insane, considering zero new volumes released during the period covered by the mid-year rankings. This is 100% th mobage code rail on DVDs. I mean at this point it’s “only” another 7-8 weeks of ranking every DVD in order to pass the first season of Love Live Sunshine to become #9 since 2000.

41,401 Kekkai Sensen & Beyond
• Previously known sales: 35,773 = 35,773 v1-6
• Addition: 5,628
• Average: 5,962 → 6,900

39,774 Love Live! Sunshine!!
• Previously known sales: n/a
• Addition: n/a
• Average: n/a
• Note: This is almost certainly concerts (like Happy Party Train Tour), considering the last volume of s1 came out in March 2017.

37,939 Senki Zesshou Symphogear AXZ
• Previously known sales: 33,984 = 33,984 v4-6
• Addition: 3,955
• Average: 14,133 → 14,792
• Note: It’s official, Senki Zesshou Symphogear AXZ has passed GX. This franchise has achieved the almost certainly unmatched in history feat of increasing its sales over three sequels in a row. Wild.

30,765 Zoku Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru
• Previously known sales: 28,897 = v1-3wk3
• Addition: 1,868
• Average: 8,848 → 9,160

30,568 Sora yori mo Tooi Basho
• Previously known sales: 28,221 = v1-3wk3
• Addition: 2,347
• Average: 9,407 → 9,994
• Note: Glad to see that v3wk2 (and likely wk3) filled in, we lost the full rankings at the worst time there. I really hope v4 manages a wk2 at least, but it’s probably a stretch. Still, Yorimoi ought to clear 9.5k average which is amazing.

28,701 Yurucamp
• Previously known sales: 28,247 = v1-2wk3
• Addition: 454
• Average: 14,124 → 14,275
• Note: The addition looks so small here because both volumes’ BDs already ranked per-volume so this is just filling in a smidgen of DVDs.

26,073 Owarimonogatari Season 2
• Previously known sales: 21,272 = v2wk3+, v3
• Addition: 4,801
• Average: 19,507 → 21,107
• Note: Seems like a heck of an addition for how little is covered but the math doesn’t make sense any other way. Interesting.

25,891 Girls und Panzer
• Previously known sales: n/a
• Addition: n/a
• Average: n/a
• Note: Considering Finale is separated out into its own entry, this is mostly the summary recap and the orchestral concert discs. Can’t really do anything with this number.

 

Movies/OVAs
72,084 Fate/stay night: Heaven’s Feel – I. Presage Flower
• Previously known sales: 70,760 = 70,760 wk1-5
• Addition: 1,324

69,602 Girls und Panzer Finale I
• Previously known sales: 69,411
• Addition: 191
• Note: Since both DVD and BD made the per-volume lists I guess the 191 is REs.

43,645 No Game No Life: Zero
• Previously known sales: 41,949
• Addition: 1,696

39,949 Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei: Hoshi wo Yobu Shoujo
• Previously known sales: 37,552
• Addition: 2,397

38,890 Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha: Reflection
• Previously known sales: 37,532
• Addition: 1,358

25,014 Kimi no Na wa.
• Previously known sales: 19,709 = 879,621 last reported, minus the 859,912 of the 2017 full-year list
• Addition: 5,305
• Note: This brings the current total to 884,926 from 879,621.

  1. Tuna says:

    Ah that increase, maybe end of year granblue will hit 60K average or more. Wow.

  2. Flushme says:

    Well played, Symphogear AXZ. What an amazing achievement that is. Can’t wait how XV (what a title) will perform next year. There’s also the Symphogear Live 2018 BD and Symhogear XDU character song vol. 1 album coming in August, as well as a lot of new merch. While the franchise is going stronger than ever, it saddens me that season 5 will probably be the last.

  3. KurumiNightmare . says:

    Why would Season 5 be the last one o.o, i mean when a franchise is so succesfull you just keep making more until it actualy isnt worth it anymore…..

    • Flushme says:

      I don’t know if you’re following the series, but storywise it seems to be approaching its climax. Since it’s anime original, they could always decide to make more, though.

  4. XiV says:

    I don’t see Franxx, Violet Evergarden, or 3-gatsu no lion… sad.

    At least Yorimoi and Yuru Camp are doing great. Heck, Yorimoi v4 comes with a case which fits all BD releases. Incentive there, espicially people with OCD.

    • PapaShango says:

      Man I feel bad for 3 gatsu especially.Such a masterpiece and yet it hardly sells.It even sold pretty average as per kast year’s rankings.

  5. amc says:

    30,568 Sora yori mo Tooi Basho
    >Average: 9,407 → 9,994
    shouldn’t it be +10k? I mean 30k/3=10k

    • something something says:

      Yes, it’s a little confusing but the way I count the additional discs from these charts is “#added / #volumes” and it’s a 4 volume release, so I divided by 4. Even though, at the time, only 3 volumes were out. This is just a time-saver so I don’t have to readjust all the numbers when additional volumes are released. Vol. 4 is out now so everything lines up again.

  6. Chad says:

    Well done once again, Symphogear AXZ. The Symphogear franchise has now seen sales increases for three seasons in a row.
