Ah right, thanks.

They use a formula based on the estimated number of copies at various POS rankings as explained in this link:

This is how they come up with the figures shown in the link you provided, because I imagine they use the same method for the Bunko ranking.

This is why at the bottom of each weekly POS manga ranking, this is provided for each particular week, to enable people to estimate how much a particular manga sold at ranks below the Top 50:

I thought I'd ask in here as this was probably the place I would be most likely to get a response.

Does anyone know where the figures here come from? They don't match up with Oricon's figures, by the way, being fairly consistently slightly higher than the figures oricon puts out.

Can't wait for Owaru no Seraph 2nd season

By stalker points. The cumulative of all estimate point of bluray + DVD version / per each anime.
similar to what Red doing.
But daily update.
You can use tool to sum all the numbers in
but I think there is a site doing that

Zapredon | Aug 6, 2015 9:22 PM
What you mean by stalker point? Do you mean the average bluray/dvd sales for each anime? If that is what you mean, I use this sites to check it.

moonnya | Jul 26, 2015 4:03 PM
uhh I remember there is a Chinese site, like baidu or something, that keep track and sum the estimate stalker points for each anime. Anyone got the link ?
