2020 Fall 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!

  1. Changeman says:

    I saw at Yaraon that Vol 1 of BD Jujutsu sold 22,701 copies in the first week. I hope it can help you.

    And thank you very much for the update

  2. KurumiNightmare says:

    Kinda sad to see Nana selling so badly such a great series was rly hoping it would sell better and get us a 2nd season….hope atleast they made enough from streamimg rights so that we got a chance for it…

  3. Joe says:

    Is there any chance that Jujutsu vol 1 will reach 30k?

    • something says:

      Selling ~35% of total sales after the first week, which is about what it would take, is possible, yes. ~20-25% is more typical for most releases (the ones that actually rank more than once anyway), but for a big seller like Jujutsu a longer tail is possible. Especially if it was undershipped in the first week or something.

  4. something says:

    Updated this for the first time in a few weeks, covering the weeks of 1/25, 2/01, 2/08.

  5. Changeman says:

    Jujutsu is an overwhelming success and Assault Lily Bouquet sold more than I expected.

  6. KSCBSC says:

    I’m aware that these sales don’t matter much anymore, still 1,1k for Maoujou de Oyasumi seems pretty underwhelming.

  7. Godo says:

    Where is Dai no Daibōken?

    • something says:

      It’s a weekend morning kids’ show so I decided to put it in the long-running list instead (you just wont see it yet since I haven’t updated the site since it came out). I know it’s technically not long-running, but it’s more similar to the shows over there (and this way I don’t need to move things around if it gets a bunch of extra seasons/episodes).

  8. Changeman says:

    I saw in yaraon that Vol 1 of Mahouka season 2 managed to sell 7,674 copies so far, is that correct?

    • something says:

      They just pulled that from 5ch. It only ranked in its first week, but most likely those numbers come from the NewType monthly data to fill in weeks 2 and 3. I’ll update it.
