Every volume of Steins;Gate has been wildly overestimated for some reason. A period of ranking high is part of it, but I have a feeling it might just sell disproportionately more to Amazon than at other retailers, which is another potential cause for poor estimates.
This is also why I believe Ano Natsu's first volume won't sell as much as its preorder points show, since it hasn't returned to the top 100 after being ranked 3rd (if i recall correctly) for a couple of days.
Yes, very possible. It's true that it's barely seen the top 100
since the start.
On the other hand it's spent the entirety of that time almost never dropping below 200th, so it's not had a total collapse at any point either. And a little over a week ago, it finally snapped its unbroken decline, rose, and stabilized
I think it all comes down to the final episodes. Episode 11 of 12 airs three days before it goes on sale. Episode 12 airs before the first week reporting period ends. If the final stretch really gets people passionate, then a nice bump coupled with its consistently 200-or-better placing thus far could result in a Haganai-like come-from-behind 10k.
