The sale figures have been revealed for the first Japanese Blu-ray and DVD volumes of the anime from the Summer 2015 anime season. The sales themselves are important as they correlate to how popular the series is within Japan. Higher sales means that a series is popular. Animation studios and their producers and partners use these sales to gauge interest in further continuation of the series.
