While I am happy that this is the highest oricon rank of aqours.. Im worried that aqours is steadily losing steam. below 40k weekly debut as aqours is something. Lets hope things will become better once the first live is announced


The ED ranked 3rd in its release week but ended up selling higher, so as i've said many times on MAL, the Oricon weekly rank has of little significance, except for purposes such as which discs end up making the Oricon weekly ranking list. The media love to make a big deal about it in their news articles, but people who follow sales seriously don't care much about the weekly ranking. The sales are much more important in the end.

Well, Aqours is still outselling its next closest rival ("Ticketmaster"... oopps I meant Idolmaster), when we compare CD releases without any sales doping. As you said, the first live will provide a bump to sales as the Anime series has already done so.

Aqours first live has already been announced for February 2017, ticket in BD1. So that won't help. Just one episode of the anime left.

No CD releases in October but 3 in November with Is3, first Sukufesu collab single and OST. Have to see but I am not expecting those to be higher. Maybe the second season, probably announced in the February live, will boost things but it seems that Aqours will not do as well as Muse at this point.

*crosses fingers* this can help boost the chance of a possible movie cause the way the anime is heading I doubt will get a happy ending Dx
Not sure Macross needs any excuses to make movies. They have made movies after every TV series so far, haven't they? I fully expect we'll get some Delta movies. Movies are all the rage right now anyway, so many series are getting them.


Well yea that's true but haven't the other Macross series sold better in discs? I assume Frontier received 3 movies because of how well it sold when the discs came out now Delta's a different story. The only thing that can save it is either the Cd Albums or merchandise ( includes figures, pillows etc )

Really weird sales for the 2nd insert song. The first 2 days of sales was similar to the ED (so it looked like 40K week 1), but then it suddenly dropped to the 1st insert song level for Days 3 to 6.

Wow @ Kimi no Na wa. OST for selling steadily. I wish Koe no Katachi OST sold more better.
I doubt it. Koe no Katachi has to outdo Kimi no Na Wa and the music performers should be also popular.

Walkure Trap! has an event ticket serial code for the 2nd live concert, so it will not sell as poorly as the other albums, that did not have any sales doping. But yes, it might not sell as high as Walkure Attack! even with such a bonus.

Ah right, wasn't aware it had an event serial code, might not be as a big a drop as I'm expecting then. Cheers.

Also great to see Walkure Attack! still hanging in there on the album chart, might pass 120k before falling out the rankings. Hoping Walkure Trap! can continue with the fab sales when it releases though expecting a drop.
