Fun With Numbers: Very Screwy Vampire Hunter D Numbers for the Week of 9/21-9/27

So this week’s Vampire Hunter D data is… different. DVD data didn’t update when the rest of the DVD data did. BD figures *did* update, but dropped off about 60 freaking percent. Last week saw the BD lifetime total at 4404 copies. This week the Nash DB has the same total down all the way to 1768! That’s not some small-time mistake, yo. I um, I saw this a few days ago and I don’t know enough four letter words to describe how this makes me feel. Look at this biz:

It’s a nightmare, really. I’m still flabbergasted. But after seeing these figures a few days ago, I think I have a crack theory about what might be going on.

Fun With Numbers: Vampire Hunter D’s Rerelease Sold 1191 Copies in Week 2

Vampire Hunter D’s rerelease added quite a few more copies in its second week on sale – 1137 BDs and 54 DVDs. The movie’s 2-week total is now up to 3338 copies.

Average amazon ranks for the two totals are #402 (BD) and #6904 (DVD). This will be the last time for a few weeks I’ll be able to compare amazon rankings to sales for this particular release, due to my own oversight in tracking.

Fun With Numbers: Vampire Hunter D’s Rerelease Sold 2147 Copies on Week 1

The Nash Information Services database is now current for BD and DVD sales in the week ending in August 30th of this year. Though Vampire Hunter D’s BD rerelase (with a sprinkling of DVDs on top) didn’t make the top 20 that week, it was in the Nash database, and its average ranking of #177 on amazon ended up translating into 2147 total copies sold (2048 BD+99 DVD).

Thanks to my new amazon data retrieval script, it was easy to track it for an extra week in a crowded month, so we’ll be able to compare these numbers with those for its second week when the Nash DB updates again. This is the first time I’ve gotten hard numbers for a Section 23 release, so that’s an interesting side-note.
