Fun With Numbers: May 2017 Amazon Data (Initial Numbers)

This is a big, big month for US releases. 45 total, and 3 already are breaking triple-digits in the rankings (One Piece Film Gold, Gundam 08th MS Team, Speed Racer).

That’s not even counting the first Digimon tri film, just a hair outside the triple-digit zone at #1104 on BD (~65 copies a day) and #8764 on DVD (~39 copies a day). This is the first thing I’ve really cared about (best Ghibli film Only Yesterday doesn’t count because I only watched it recently, 6+ months after the US release) to track with a good possiblity of making the top 20 since I started 3 years ago. Don’t do anything to ruin my moment. The BD version was ranking in the top 300 2 months ago as it got a surge of preorders from the stream of part 4 of the same series. That top-300 ranking, at a minimum, is worth 240 a day. Assuming it spiked for 1 week and the DVD/BD sales ratio was proporitonal to what it is now, that’s 400*7+100*60=8800 copies from preorders without counting its release spike. The BD threshold for the public top-30 chart this time last year was 10,057. I *may* be livetweeting its stats daily, so check my twitter (@torisunanohokori) if you care as much as I do. If not, well that’s certainly not cool, but you do you.

Data was first taken on April 24th, 2017.
