There are only 34 new releases in the anime tag for June, at most. I’m not sure if it will stay that way, as Amazon has made some changes and listing choices which make it generally more of a pain in the ass to pull data:
-The Origin movie special edition, slated for June 27th according to Funimation’s website, is not given a release date on Amazon and is listed in “Industrial & Scientific” rather than “Movies & TV”, as Dimension W was for a short time last month. Its ranking will be meaningless so long as it remains in that category, but I’ll keep an eye on it to see if it switches.
-Gakkou Gurashi and Chivalry of a Failed Knight have Collector’s Editions coming out a month after the main release, and thus were not in chronological release order. I’m lucky I checked the full list of upcoming releases, which I will continue to do to try and nip future instances of this in the bud.
-YGO: Dark Side of Dimensions has 3 editions, a DVD, a BD, and a pricier BD, but the pricer BD didn’t rank as of yet and caused an error in my tracking system for the first 2 days, causing me to miss that, the Gakkou Gurashi releases, and Origin data until May 31st. Hopefully that’s not a major issue, but I marked where I use May 31st data like so: [$60 (-33%); 97780]*
-2 May releases, a Lupin movie and SeHa Girls, were added after the May data was taken, so I’m including them here.
Data was first taken on May 29th, 2017, except for the last 5 entries.
