2021 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!

  1. Changeman says:

    What are the sales forecasts for Zombieland Saga? At least 10,000 copies?

    At amazon jp I saw that it is in 2nd place in search, I hope this is something good.

    • something says:

      The estimate is about 5k. However it just recently ended and the disc release is today, and an event ticket was announced, so it’s getting a late surge.

  2. odyi says:

    So, Odd Taxi announced a BD box after wrapping up yesterday, which would release if the goal of 300 preorders was met, with it being met a bit earlier today


  3. Changeman says:

    What is the sales forecast for Vivy’s first BD? I saw on yaraon that there are chances of selling well, but I would like to have an idea of a number.

  4. mangamuscle says:

    Any estimates on how much discs Nagatoro sold?

  5. Kandayuu says:

    Any estimates on how much Slime Taoshite 300-nen sold?

    • something says:

      I’ll update everything today, but Slime didn’t rank. The estimate was about 800, but the threshold to rank in its release week was 1000, so we don’t know how much it sold.

      • Mossman says:

        Why are the cut-off thresholds different for each week? What would prevent Oricon from recording 999 units in sales versus 1000 ?

        • something says:

          It’s not based on the sales number, it’s based on a set amount of releases per week. The data we still have access to these days is the Oricon Youtaiju Top 30 animation DVDs and Top 20 animation BDs each week. Since the 20th best-selling BD this week sold 1,072 (I was rounding earlier when I said 1000), data for anything selling 1,071 or less isn’t available. (There is also a weekly Top 100 from Oricon Biz, but they don’t usually get leaked anymore.)

  6. Changeman says:

    I hope ZBLR can get over 10k.

  7. Changeman says:

    Fate/Grand Carnival 1st Season sold how many comics so far?

    • Changeman says:

      BD, sorry!

      • something says:

        It’s up to 35,419 now. It had a huge 4th and 5th week, adding over 8k across those two weeks alone. Must have been supply constrained initially.

        • Changeman says:

          The fans must have prioritized Kimetsu and Uma Musume first.

          • something says:

            Nah I don’t think it has anything to do with competition. Its BD sales went:

            20,646 → 1,164 → 158 → 4,651 → 2,775

            That says to me that it had inadequate stock week one, was basically sold out after week two, and restocked in week four.

  8. Arisa says:

    May I ask if there’s any prediction already available for the Super Cub BD Box?

  9. Changeman says:

    Hard to believe that ZombieLand 2 didn’t hit 10k.

  10. Changeman says:

    How many volumes has the kimetsu movie bd sold?

  11. Changeman says:

    How many volumes of BD did Grindman Volume 2 sell this week?
