Apparently, BanG Dream is the 9th most talked about anime this season on Japanese Twitter. Of course, Tweets don't correspond to BD sales, but it does seem to indicate BanG Dream isn't.... as ignored in Japan compared to outside Japan.

Also, the "One-girl show" effect, if it does exist is more likely to have shafted Arisa and Rimmi instead, because they were the first to be recruited. O Tae received two whole episodes, as did Saya.

To put things into perspective, LWA doesn't even make it on that list.
