Eh, no drop for Inu x Boku SS? That's one thing I wasn't expecting. The series turns out to be a real success after all, and not just a good performance on the discounted volume only to dwindle later on.

EVOL did about as predicted, though I would have loved to see Stalker slightly underestimating it for it to break the 10k mark right away. For what it's worth, it's the first show I'm importing in a while, and I'm afraid it'll be joined by at least one spring series soon enough...

I'm so happy to see Inu Boku is second best to Nise for Winter Sales...

Can't believe it beat DxD and Boku Tomodachi....shows the power when it caters to both girls AND boys.

At least, I THINK it appeals to guys? I'm no guy so I dunno.

I think its eligible for a S2?

How is Volume 3 for Inu X Boku doing?

And ouch Brave 10. D: if only it had been executed better...

Symphogear still going strong...

So happyto see tamayura...shows there are still fuwa fuwa fans in the world.

Inu x Boku SS definitely appeals to guys too, yes. It's one of the most successful late night anime I've seen at hooking both so equally. You can see that in the even DVD/BD spread - shows that appeal only to guys virtually never sell half their copies on DVD.

phoenixalia said:

Easily.

How is Volume 3 for Inu X Boku doing?

It's doing fine. With Vol. 2 barely dropping at all I don't expect Vol. 3 to drop much either.

And ouch Brave 10. D: if only it had been executed better...

It completely nosedived for Vol. 2. I guess Vol. 1 came with an event ticket or something.


Do you know the number of BD's sold? For Brave 10 Volume 2?

So sales of NMG are a bit lower than excepted but not so bad. Good to see that Haganai, Working-2, InuBoku, Horizon and High Scghool DxD didn't suffer large drop of sales.

P.S.: Need to watch NMG at last

Umm why does everyone keep saying Nise is a failure? Was it supposed to sell 80k or something? I think BKM sold something like that. Also, I noticed that Stalker predicted 10k copies more than what's here.

Well, I'm not surprised to see GC selling well since the amount of contempt in regard to this series doesn't reflect on BD sells.

As to the matter whether GC was a good show or not I kindly disagree with you ;)

Hopefully nowhere.
Good to see it's selling so poorly (considering its ridiculous budget). Maybe people will finally learn that investing more than 1% into decent script is a good idea.

I'd like a date with some idols... Let's say, not to be too greedy... Makoto, Miki, Takane, MamiAmi, Azusa, Hibiki, Iori, Yayoi, Ritsuko, Kotori ^__^

I wonder how iDOLM@STER sales look combined with G4U bundles (are they still released for vol 7?) Over 20k?


Such a shame Rinne isn't doing well, maybe S2 will change it. Even Sympho outsells it...

Haganai, DxD and InuxBoku doing well. Can't possibly ask for more. :]
Well, despite its atrocity of a last episode I'm glad that GC is selling well, too.

Poor Brave 10, though. Doesn't look like there's any hope left for that show.

It's just how things are. Otaku buy BDs, fujoshi buy DVDs. There are exceptions of course but it's general rule.
Just look at sales.

Because IxB SS was the best one? Because it had Miketsukami fanservice? Because girls really like this 'butler' stuff?
Also, IxB is nothing compared to Nise when it comes to fanservice, so I'm not really sure what are you talking about.

@jmal, thank you!


You can't possibly be serious, What the hell does the format have to do with anything for crying out loud? general rule my nuts, i don't see any rule or any restrictions saying male otaku shouldn't be buying DVDs, and what do you mean "look at the sales"? i'm clearly looking at them and i have no clue what you're talking about. also like i said before, don't give me the "bishounen" or "butler" crap, is that some kind of joke or something? and last time i checked, there weren't any butlers in inu x boku, even if there were, if you're expecting the female otakus to buy the DVD's because of that then you must be out of your mind. also there's always the possiblity that it sold slightly better on DVD because it's cheaper? has that thought ever crossed your mind?

and i didn't say anything about Nise, why would you compare to inuxboku? They're in completely different leagues, i actually felt offended that you went ahead and compared them, Nise is a masterpiece sir, please don't compare those two.


Its called sales trends... any economic analyst will tell you that they are very valuable to follow.

Generally, men are more technologically inclined so they will have PS3s and other BD players. Women generally aren't as technically inclined, so they might still have their DVD players and don't play video game as much. Due to this, they focus more on buying DVDs, while men buy BDs.

We've seen over and over again that stuff aimed at men sell BDs, while stuff aimed at women sell DVDs. This is a sales trend that is pretty much in concrete, since I do not know any series off the top of my head in recent years that went against this. So if something like Inu x Boku sold just as many DVDs as BDs, it shows it has a significant female audience.

Jmal, don't even bother since he seems to have it set in his mind that this is a fully male dominated fanbase for Inu x Boku. Nevermind that it has implied yaoi and totally bishounen characters with fetishes that appeal to the female fanbase.

this basically proves that monogatari series will sell like crazy in japan,
and thus we are going to see most of the rest of the series animated.
bakemonogatari sold like crazy and is number 1 since 2000 in bd+dvd sales, and nisemonogatari sells 50k for bd and 7k for dvd = 57k? thats freaking impressive

Guilty Crown has no need to, its a self contained story. I do think Haganai will get a 2nd season at some point though I'm not confident in it.

48% BD's only, right? that means it already has a significant male fanbase, right? and you mentioned before that male otakus buy DVD's too, right? doesn't that kind of prove my point? that it's more male oriented?

But nobody said InuBoku didn't have a male fanbase. The claim was that it's split pretty evenly, which is a rare and laudable accomplishment. And even if you don't believe me, an understanding of anime sales trends supports it.

(Also note that if you replace "male" with "female", "48%" with "52%" and "DVD" with "BD", your reasoning would be turned perfectly inside out.)

::shrugs:: If nothing else, I guess I acknowledge your tenacity in interpreting things to match your preferred conclusions. I feel that I made a good faith effort to explain, but if you want the conclusion you want, I certainly don't have the power to reach through the internet and rip it out of your head.

Although that would be a fabulous superpower...

Edit: ↓ A lovely display of ignorance. I'm actually just going to assume trolling now, because that's a lot more charitable an interpretation than the questions I'd need to ask about your reading comprehension.

Dude, your arguement is based solely on some random data and god knows if it's reliable or not, and on that matter, Nisemonogatari sold 7K DVD's, does that mean that 7K was from the female otakus? Lol ffs.


The same random 'unreliable' data you're citing to affirm that Nisemonogatari sold 7k DVDs...

As everyone has been saying, a majority of males buy BDs while some still buy DVDs. Note the emphasis on majority. 7k DVDs for a total of 57k in sales? That's about 12%. I reckon 88% can be considered a pretty strong majority, but then yes, some males do still buy it on DVD. (And let's be honest here - Nisemonogatari has no female appeal whatsoever. Sure, a small percentage are probably female because they might like the dialogue or the look of the show, but let's not fool ourselves and think they're the norm here.)

While the "females buy more DVDs than BDs" statement is, in my opinion, getting blurry with time, it is still a fact that your typical male otaku audience will buy many more BDs. You would never get a 50/50 repartition with an almost all male audience, it is a given that females are purchasing Inu x Boku SS massively. And honestly, do you seriously fail to see the fujoshi appeal of the show? It's certainly not just because Zange hits on Miketsukami. It's got plenty of bishounen with appealing character designs and an all-star cast. Let me point you to certain magazines like Pash or Animedia with their illustrations featuring all the guys... Inu x Boku SS was right up there with your average fujoshi series.

oh i also forgot to mention DxD, haganai, working!!, etc that sold on DVD too, does that also mean the female otakus bought them? Lol wow dude, just wow.


I do believe Working has a female fanbase. Those two male characters in it seem to get quite a bit of attention from women.

Just look at MAL, Jun has more favorites than anyone else but Inami. It certainly isn't the guys who are giving him the favorites.

ZNT's sales are really something.

Glad to see Haganai selling well though; and of course, Nisemonogatari's selling really well.

Arararararagi is fabulous.

Why are we still replying to that troll?


I don't really like those sales, many shows sold much more/less than they should imo. IxB, DxD and AnoNatsu are pleasant surprises but when I think about low sales of Nichibros and especially Rinne... and see that Symphogear or Brave 10 are higher...
Oh well, different tastes.

oh Yeah? what about the others ones i mentioned?

DxD: 76.14% BD
Haganai: 79.19% BD
Go figure, exactly within the range I cited multiple times, which you've completely ignored and interpreted as "100% BD because even 1 DVD sold completely invalidates all sales trend analysis". What?

You don't expect to be taken seriously when your comebacks are not even based on the things other people have said, right? Textbook strawman arguments. It's either trolling or stupid, pick one. If you don't like either of those, then go read and understand the points being made before trying to refute them.

Yes, InuxBoku has shit that might appeal to fujoshi, but it's dominated by the loli fanservice and Yuri goodness, am i wrong?

and if remember correctly, "pash" or whatever that random insignificant magazine's name was, had like every bishounen the anime history has ever known, why would inuboku be an exception?


Dominated? No. It's got as many BL undertones as it's got delusional yuri scenes. It's got plenty of Ririchiyo physical fanservice, but honestly that's just because fujoshi don't need equally obvious in-your-face fanservice to buy it. (And before anyone misunderstands me, I'm not saying Inu x Boku SS is an extreme case of the kind... it does have pretty tasteful fanservice for what it does, but my point stands to compare the behavior of the two audiences.)

And no, Pash hasn't featured every bishounen in history. It features shows that appeal - and sell - to the female audience.
