Winter update:
Kaijuu Girls s2 sells 225/154, total 379. One-shot release, so Series average: 379.

VEG v2 sells 5026/569, total 5,595.
v1 adds 268 BDs, total 7,843.

Citrus v2 sells 947 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Takunomi v2, final volume, sells 513 BDs. There’s also DVDs staggered from the BD release but they won’t rank, so – Series average: 510.

Idolish7 v3 adds 1011/679, total 15,989. Depending on how future volumes hold up, we’re looking at roughly a 20k average.

Yorimoi v2 adds 614 BDs, total 9,266. Hopefully 9.5k next week if thresholds allow.

Darlifra v1 adds 576 BDs, total 6,488.

Overlord s2 v1 adds 379 BDs, total 6,457.

Ryuuou v2 adds 297, total 2,287.

v6 adds 577 DVDs, total 51,125.

Another milestone passed… now it feels like passing Shingeki (52,078) and Fate/Zero (52,285) and becoming #10 since 2000 is just a matter of time. This is definitely a couple hundred GBF whales buying a whole set of DVDs every week, with occasional fluctuations higher.

  1. Elio says:

    Despite Citrus’ numbers, disc sales aren’t that important in grand scheme of things for that specific title, right?

  2. yareyare says:

    um… SideM’s live events sell better than the anime, reminds me of Tourabu

    and a 20k average for I7 would be pretty good although I expected a lot more

  3. Tuna says:

    A game anime in the top 10 of modern history. Hold me. Incredible.

    Longest legs ever of a non rereleased show yet probably?

    • something says:

      Depends how we’re defining legs. When it comes to percentage of total disc sales that happened after the first week, that’s always been Love Live’s gig. For whatever reason, it has extremely large weeks after the first (multiple thousands) rather than selling those all up front. Part of it is bumps when ticket application deadlines approach, but it goes beyond that. Maybe Bandai has trouble stocking it, I dunno.

      Here’s every show that’s averaged at least 15,000 since 2010 ranked by percentage of sales occurring after wk1, with a minimum threshold of 20% (there are 59 total so this is the top 27):

      Granblue is extremely high up there at #3, and it’s not impossible that it could get to second place. Especially if we ever get an update that fills in the huge number of weeks left unreported for the BD versions. Fully a third of its sales have already come after wk1, which is nuts.

      As far as longest legs by number of weeks ranked, yes that would go to Granblue. With 49 weeks of ranking each for Granblue v1 and v2, no other TV volume release I have on record is higher, and it’s just going to keep running up the score.

      If you include Bandai’s re-release singles for Garupan and LL s1, then those dominate. The Garupan re-release singles themselves sold 84.8% of their discs after wk1, which. is. unbelievable. Love Live s1’s re-releases sold 51.8% of their discs after wk1, also insane. In terms of total weeks, the Garupan re-release discs topped out at 60 weeks (v3) and LL topped out at 47 (v1 and v4). LL ranked a lot longer in its original release than Garupan did though, due to much better stock. So if you combined original + re-release singles, the top would be LL v1 (40 + 47 = 87 weeks). Garupan’s top would be v3 (15 + 60 = 75 weeks). Granblue won’t reach those numbers. (Uhhh… probably… shit, who knows anymore.)

      [Caveat: My # weeks ranked data is more reliable the more recent a show is, so older titles are hard to compare. Then again Oricon tracked less titles back in the day so it would have been harder for them to rank anyway.]

      • Antika says:

        These are really interesting data, especially the total number of weeks ranked. I don’t think I have seen them anywhere on this website, do you plan to publish them in the future or do you only keep them for personal use?

        • something says:

          Unfortunately the data wouldn’t really fit anywhere in the current charts I maintain. The per-volume ranking would in theory be closest, but that shows the total sales per volume (combining all formats/editions) whereas the #weeks ranked is tracked for each individual edition of the disc (so DVD and BD weeks ranked are tracked separately, for example).

          I also wouldn’t want to add it to any charts because it’s not necessarily completely accurate. If a title ranks outside of the top 100 and doesn’t come back into the top 100 later, I’m not going to have a complete weeks count.

          The best way to see how many weeks a disc ranked is to check the entry in the Oricon database. If you go here and enter the name of the series in Japanese, you can see the number of weeks ranked under 登場回数 for each item page.

          So as an example of what I was talking about, I have 105 weeks of ranking for Garupan Anzio OVA, but it’s actually ranked 115 times – those last 10 weeks just haven’t been in the top 100 so we’ve not seen them.

          • Antika says:

            Actually there’s already a chart with the number of weeks indicated (all formats included) in the “Vol. 1 Sales by Season” so I guess it takes the best between DVD and BD. Is it not possible to have a detailed DVD/BD sales distinction like in the “Average Sales by Year” but per volume? I can see the number of weeks ranked for each format fit here.

            I don’t think accuracy is really a problem as sales are all about estimation and exact numbers can never be really tracked down, I would rather have an indication of the last time it ranked in the top 100 than no information at all (or having to go through all the weekly charts to find the last time it ranked to have an idea). It can still be a useful reference at least for recent titles even if not entirely reliable.

            I already knew about the Oricon entry page but most of the time I checked the total number of weeks per volume was clearly not updated or wasn’t indicated at all so I never use it.

            On another note, what about the total sales per series combining all formats? There are the “Mid-Year and Yearly Rankings” and the different rankings with average sales but I would like to compare series of different years in absolute sales and possibly sort them by wk1 and post-wk1 sales like shown in the table without having to add the per-volume sales as they most often don’t totally correspond with the total sales data because of the trail.

            • something says:

              I update the vol 1 chart manually, so that wouldn’t be something I could maintain for bigger lists. Basically it’s just kind of a lot of work to add additional charts or even additional columns to existing charts, and while number of weeks ranked per can be momentarily interesting, my feeling is that it’s not illuminating enough to add it to my list of things to maintain.

              • Antika says:

                I can imagine the amount of work needed if the distinction wasn’t made from the beginning or if it’s updated manually so I won’t ask again if you judge these data not worth enough to be added. I guess I will just have to go through the current charts hoping to find the information I need to construct my own comparisons as I am only interested in specific titles.
                Thanks for your response.

                • something says:

                  If there’s a limited number of specific shows you’re interested in I can manually dump out some of the relevant data into a google doc or something, it’d just have to be a one-time thing.

                  Also, regarding how I track weekly data: I usually track the first 10 weeks separately, and then all later weeks combined in one column with whatever the most recent total is. I do this because I don’t want to keep adding columns indefinitely to my spreadsheet for every week that something ranks.

                  This column is also used for data that isn’t explicitly tied to a specific week, such as mid-year or end-of-year lists. So say a title ranks:
                  Week 1: 10,000
                  Week 2: 2,000
                  Week 3: 1,000

                  And when ranks in the yearly list as 14,500 we’d see:
                  Adjustment: 1,500

                  (Or whatever I call the column, I forget.) We don’t actually know what weeks those 1,500 discs are from or how it’s divvied up, just that they’re from some time after week 3.

                  • Antika says:

                    I see, 10 weeks tracked separately should be sufficient for the majority of the series as the difference most often doesn’t exceed a couple hundreds afterwards for the final addition. In this case I accept your offer with pleasure. You don’t need to make an extraction of specific titles, I wouldn’t want to have forgotten any of them so I prefer to do it myself.

                    The spreadsheets I’m interested in are the ones with the weekly data you just explained, the total sales with wk1/wk2+ distinction and the number of weeks tracked per-volume and by format, for all genre including re-releases (if it isn’t too much).

                    • something says:

                      I remembered that back in 2015 I did a dump of data from my spreadsheet for TV anime, so I’ve done an updated extract which should have what you need.

    how much will fate sell next week

    • something says:

      Well, I’d need to see the future to know that but I can say that Stalker’s estimate was 51,468. So I guess we’ll find out next Tuesday how accurate that was.

      • Whocares says:

        Is 50k good for a movie or bad?

        • something says:

          That’s much too broad a question. We can’t say what’s good “for a movie” because movies could mean, like, a recap film for a niche late night series, or it could mean Kimi no Na wa.

          In any case, 50k seems like it would be good for Heaven’s Feel.
