2020 Winter 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!

Partial Ranking means a release came out on more than one video format, but only one of the two ranked.

Season-specific notes
• Domestic na Kanojo’s release is a later BD box. The series was initially released digitally via DMM’s “PlayPic” service. This BD box is the first physical release.

Vol. 1 Unranked, Later Vol. Ranked

    I did not expect Magia Record to sell over 8k BD/DVD only. I thought it would at least sell around 20k or something due to Madoka’s popularity. Does that mean no Madoka movie 4? Cuz I’ve heard people (mostly on reddit) stating that a new Madoka project depends on MagiReco sales.

    • something says:

      I really really doubt another OG timeline Madoka movie depends on MagiReco video disc sales. They’ve had over six years since the third film to release a fourth movie if they were so inclined, and have not done so. Heck, even *Magireco’s* success does not depend on Magireco video disc sales. It’s a mobage first and foremost, of course.

      Anyway, Magireco is an AU spinoff nine years after its original series, so I’m not at all surprised it’s selling a tiny fraction of the original’s numbers.

    • Jaehaerys48 says:

      Honestly I was impressed by the ~9k number. It’s been years since Madoka Magica. The MagiReco mobile game is popular enough but not that huge. 9k is pretty good for a mobage adaptation if its popularity, I mean this isn’t far behind FGO Babylonia’s numbers and FGO is MASSIVE in comparison to MagiReco.

    This is off-topic but can you tell disc sales of Kabaneri movie?

    • something says:

      The first two films (recaps of the first season) were released as one disc, and sold 1,437. The third film, with new material, sold 4,223.

  3. Ottes says:

    When Dorohedoro first BD will be released? Did you expect to sell well? Being a netflix exclusive show for now probably not, but who knows…

  4. Kuro says:

    Do you know disc sales of KonoSuba movie ? Thanks

  5. Lucio Moreira Bonfim Filho says:

    I reeally want to see how much ishuzoku reviews have sell, update please!

    • something says:

      It comes out on May 27th, so it’s still a ways off. The release dates here are kinda out of date with so many releases getting delayed…

      Edit: Okay I’ve updated the release dates now.

  6. Tina says:

    Do you have vol.1 of Hoshiai no Sora (Stars Align) released back on February 26th and vol.2 on April 22nd?

    • something says:

      No data was ever released. It was an Animate exclusive, and while Animate does report to Oricon, they generally don’t appear to do so when they’re the exclusive retailer for a show.

  7. Yuma says:

    Railgun T 44072 ?!

  8. Arukasa says:

    A little mistake for To Aru Kagaku’s sales, right?

  9. Changeman says:

    How many units did Akira’s BD sell recently in Japan?

  10. Changeman says:

    I know you said you wouldn’t be posting Dorohedoro’s Blu-ray numbers, but could you point me to a place where I can see them? I’m really curious.

  11. Changeman says:

    How many volumes did Vol 1 of Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken! sell ?

  12. Changeman says:

    Sorry, I hadn’t seen the number before.
