Well from what I understand, Mondaiji's DVD and Blu-Ray pre-order sales are lackluster to say the least. Maybe a boost in light novel sales could help deliver a second season, the same situation we saw with Kore Wa Zombie Desu Ka.

I'm guessing Adashi Mono and Koisome Momiji don't rank being little guys from Jump. Came out on the 9th so faint hope for next week with GE #16

Edit: actually Koisome Momiji has been ranking, hopefully it will next week since it only had one day on the books for this one.

Its good that Kimi ni todoke and Maid sama are on the list. Actually both are my fav.

It is perhaps also why the anime adaptation is in on haste to adapt every volume in one go, and restrict the number of episodes to 10, just enough for adaptation of the first 2 volumes of the LN.
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

That's really good news because I like the show a lot. If you know, how do the projected light novel and disc sales stack up to where Kore Wa Zombie was at this point in its airing?

Because I was reading another forum and it seems like the disc sales are brutal for this show, basically even 4,000 total sales seems unlikely and that seems to be the minimum for getting a second season or at least that's what Zombie sold the first season if memory serves correctly.

I don't have data for the boost of sales the anime to Koreha Zombie Desuka LN but I remember reading the boost was considerable. For disc sales, KZD actually performed not too miserably, selling >4k for vol.1 and around 3k for later volumes. Mondaiji probably will do less well.

The sales projection is put at merely at 1.5k or so for vol.1 and it indeed looks brutal. However, 4k is a very rough estimate for a qualifying line for a 2nd season and thus we need to be careful not to use it as the only criterion to judge the success of an anime. Titles with apparently poor disc sales can still get a 2nd season because of good sales for its original manga/novel/game or its merchandise. This is what happens to series like Kami nomizo shiru Sekai or Milky Holmes, for example.

And even for Koreha Zombie Desuka, only vol.1 has over 4,000 disc sales while all the later volumes sold fewer than 3,500 or even 3,000 copies. One thing we need to be careful is that KZD is one of the earliest example of "split season" where the 2nd season started merely 3 months after the end of the 1st season, so it is also possible that the decision of a 2nd season had been made even before the production learned how well the discs sold, although they should be able to see the boost to the LN sales as it happened right at the beginning of 1st season (while the disc of the anime went on sale only near the end of the season). It is entirely possible that the same can happen to Mondaiji too.

Sorry I made a mistake here. It is the announcement of a 2nd season that came less than 3 months after the end of 2nd season, not the start of broadcast of 2nd season itself. While 2nd season was indeed aired in spring 2012 the announcement was made way back in June 2011 (the end of 1st season was aired at the end of March 2011)

14, *47,401 *,*47,401 Psycho-pass Vol.1

Wow KuroBasu seems doing great japan really loves sport manga. Also this might be because second season of anime is going to start soon. Psycho Pass I am really happy that manga is selling also really well. Anime also seems interesting haven't yet watched it. Great sales hope Psycho Pass will rank better in next rankings.
