They don't announce weekly series sales figures anymord?


They do (nothing has changed in this regard), but they're technically a slightly different ranking (which sometimes has things in a different order, or occasionally not present at all), is only a top 10, and the rankings aren't publicly visible so I can't post them unless someone with a youtaiju account posts them.

Here's the week covered in this thread:
*1位 30,744部 Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu
*2位 27,079部 Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!
*3位 18,162部 Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online
*4位 11,302部 Overlord
*5位 11,222部 Sekaiichi Hatsukoi ~Hatori Yoshiyuki no Baai~
*6位 *9,955部 Sword Art Online
*7位 *9,171部 Ansatsu Kyoushitsu [Shosetsu]
*8位 *8,927部 Nejimaki Seirei Senki: Tenkyou no Alderamin
*9位 *8,186部 Masou Gakuen HxH
10位 *7,662部 Legend

@Yohimo_asakura @Houreki The main reason Re:Zero's sales are back on the rankings is because the threshold is so much lower this week (3800 as opposed to 5210). Re:Zero sales are up on last week but only by about 200 in total across all volumes.

It's listed in the Book ranking. No idea why they didn't include it in the top one? @Snow

Just like several previous Makoto Shinkai films, yes.


Are the sales good, bad or average for such an adaptation?


I'm not sure it's possible to say as:
- They often have multiple versions/different formats released and on different dates.
- They can have extremely strong long tails, which means either that we see them on the rankings for ages and thus they get higher than most other comparable series, or that we miss out on the vast majority of their sales as they hover a bit below the rankings.
- The known sales for such releases vary from "never ranked" (various) to "over half a million sales accrued gradually over several years" (Summer Wars).

The last equivalent format Shinkai novel release (the one for Kotonoha no Niwa) got 6895 sales on the first week and then never ranked again.
