Generally the early estimates from Oricon are within 1000, so it should be close enough.
KnK 1st week min: 24,500 * ¥52,500 = ¥1,286,250,000
KnK 1st week mid: 25,000 * ¥52,500 = ¥1,312,500,000
KnK 1st week max: 25,499 * ¥52,500 = ¥1,338,697,500
Haruhi 1st week: 30,559 * ¥39,900 = ¥1,236,900,000
Haruhi eventually did 34,000 (¥1,356,600,000) on the dot before falling out of the rankings. So Haruhi is still the highest selling after one week but KnK is the highest grossing. Granted, Haruhi is still the highest selling BD box for a TV series
by a factor of 3 or 4, over Darker than Black. I guess comparing movies (plus the bump from the BD epilogue) and TV series isn't entirely fair.
: Isn't it scary when the sales and MSRPs would be difficult to tell apart if you removed the ¥ sign?
