I see, does that apply only to SAO or the rest too?

All releases are measured in the same way.


Alright thanks ;p

Hey man, i don't mean to bother you or anything, but what's up with Sao's second volume having more sale estimates than the first one? by like, 7k more or something, i noticed the same for Kuroko and a few others, any clues on what's going on?

The estimates are essentially based on current rank + amount of time left until release. Vol. 2 has been ranking very highly since it was solicited, so the formula that calculates estimates is based on the false assumption that the release will have that same rank all the way until release.

As time goes by and the release gradually drops a bit, the estimate will fall, which is normal, and you'll get a more accurate estimate. That's what happened to Vol. 1.

Vol. 1 will sell more than Vol. 2 in reality.

They already bought it before so they're buying the second volumes now?


Umm no, that doesn't make much sense if you ask me, i think we should wait and see what Jmal has to say about this, i mean, i've never seen an anime before where later volumes sell alot more than early ones, unless they were out of stock or something, which i highly doubt is the case for the ones listed there. come to think of it, i noticed it happen before with other animes, but the next few days the numbers were "fixed", i didn't pay much attention to it back then though, i'm confuzzled.

Thursday additions: here
Full weekly list: here

I didn't post for Thursday last week because the only real info was that Mouretsu Pirates got a second week of sales and added 400-some.

This week a lot more is added for Thursday, including a second week for Saki Achiga v3, and fifth weeks (on final volume bumps) from Persona 4 v9 and Nisemonogatari v4.

We also have BD numbers for the latest Chihayafuru, Gundam AGE, Milky Holmes, Lagrange, TeniPri, Sankarea, Sakamichi, and Nazo no Kanojo, plus BDs to add to the DVDs for Tsuritama.

This is LOLtastic :)
but since movies, music, toys and hotel rooms (yes, they have those) is brining a lot of money they can also try doing this. Not that worked so far :P

Aug 28, 2012 12:34 PM by Dalek-baka

Woah that is some big boost for P4A!
Pretty much expected since it is last volume which contain extended ep 25, true ending OVA & the movie version as bonus disc.
Now waiting for the subbed version of the movie....

KuroBas doing good.

Oh Totoro, you will never leave the chart XD

Lol, nice to see more utapri up there. (And wow, Orpheus just popped up in my playlist). Anyhow, crossing field! \o/ It's still up there, and it's understandable to why it is. Same with BRIGHT STREAM, and it's not bad to see Hohoemi no Plumage there too. :33
