Not much luck for Maid-sama either... 1,101 BDs and no ranking with DVDs. Maid-sama probably has he most of the three when combined but since we don't know the DVDs we can't be sure. Though I'd guess it sold more than 204 DVDs. Kinda brutal for these three titles.
Since we don't see the sub-100 numbers very much, I wanted to go back and post something that I saw at the site
where the yunakichi poster gets their numbers.
7/19-7/25 DVD >100
107 kiss x sis Vol. 2
116 Nintama Rantarou 17th series Vol. 4
120 Kaidan Restaurant Vol. 1
126 Kobato. Vol. 7
127 Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou Vol. 2
129 Kaichou wa Maid-sama! Vol. 1
134 Sora no Woto Vol. 5
135 Gag Manga Biyori+ Vol. 1
144 Saraiya Goyou Vol. 1
149 Emotion the Best - Ah Megami-sama Sorezore no Tsubasa DVD-BOX
This gives a decent idea of how those "below 100" shows might tend to sell.
Now, I don't know exactly why the poster was able to confirm that #151 sold 850, but couldn't confirm what the others were selling. This was posted in response to someone commenting on kissxsis Vol. 2 DVD not charting in the usual 100.
But it does tell us that Saraiya Goyou probably sold under 900 DVDs, with no BD release. Maid-sama probably sold about 950-1000 DVDs in addition to its 1101 BDs for about 2100 total.
Sora no Woto has been adding about 900-950 DVDs itself, which sounds pretty accurate since we know Vol. 3 sold 1156 DVDs and that seems like a typical drop-off. Vol. 5 BD sold 2725 so we can figure the total is at least 3650 or so first week. It's been adding about 200-400 BDs in the second week so five volumes in, let's say it's still just shy of 4000. Vol. 1 probably ended up around 4600 or thereabouts, taking all the trends into consideration.
I guess I might as well add DVD estimates into the Spring 1st Vol Sales
post for Saraiya Goyou (~875) and Maid-sama (~1000), with the appropriate caveats recorded.
I wish this information on >100 rankings were more readily available. ~900 volumes can make a pretty large difference for niche series. I wonder if Night Raid managed to move enough DVDs to beat Goyou? Without a rank and a rough estimate it's hard to tell. It not being an otaku series means it probably went about even on DVD and BD which would put it over 1k combined. No way to know for sure though. ~500 DVDs probably puts it down in the 200's for that week.
