Fun With Numbers: October 2016 Amazon Data (Initial Numbers)

We’re moving into the part of the year where the real blockbusters (read: DBZ movies the past 2 years) usually get released, but this month is fairly quiet in terms of new content coming into the market. Rather, the 41 total releases are very heavy on sequels (10) and re-releases (17) of some kind.

One notable point – this month contains 2 series (Escaflowne and Code Geass) being re-released as both a multi-part set and a large-size collection. In an interesting turn, both versions of these releases are seeing a respectable amount of preorder traffic. Together, the re-releases of these two series make up over 20% of the 41 releases for the month overall (and that’s counting the 4 versions of 2 Korean-made films I’m tracking).

Data was first taken on September 26th, 2016.

    • If you mean in the US, I can give you a lower number but no solid total. The part 2 box set sold 105,043 copies as of last February. So counting that and part 1 (almost certainly sold more), it probably sold *at least* 210,000 copies as a TV series. That number will go up when Funimation releases the inevitable full-series box. The first compilation movie just came out and the dominant version ranked around #1000 on amazon for week 1, so maybe sold ~350-700 copies that week (definitely not as much as the show).

      If you mean in Japan, that’s a question for another site: someanithing.com is a reliable source for all that jazz.

        • All sales data I get comes via Nash Information Services, either their public toplists on TheNumbers or their private database on OpusData. This figure comes from the latter. Here’s a link to the last picture I took of Funimation releases on the opus DB, with AoT p2 second from the bottom:

          The data was taken April 17th, 2016 and corresponds to updates for sales figures through the month of February
