2018 Spring 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.

Season-specific notes
• Gundam Build Divers is getting a DVD single on 7/27 but the ranking that matters is the BD on 9/26.
• Lostorage conflated WIXOSS is also getting a BD box on 12/20.

Vol. 1 Unranked, Later Vol. Ranked
