Little Buster still sells better than Sakurasou despite the low investment

Sword Art Online GGO when? Kuroko no Basket summer tournament when? Magi S2 when?

It is hard to tell how much investment was put in Sakurasou compared to Little Buster. Do you have any hard evidence that the investment in Little Buster is low?
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.

good sales for Initial D even though its the dvd version. If the blu-ray were out, the sales would be 2-3 times the amount of the dvds.

So close to 30k!

It'll be interesting to see if there is any noticeable sales boost when ep11/12 air on March 18/25. Of course that's still just under 4 weeks away.

It will also be interesting to see how v2 does (out on February 22) and whether the DVD will end up ranking at all.

A quiet week. Key observations include:

GirlPan v1 breaking 28k
JoJo v1 breaking 23k
Ini-D v1 is edging ever closer to LB! and it seems it will continue to sell some more in coming weeks

On CD front, ViviPan's OP single is doing well, a bit better than expectation. This may bode well to its BD sales.

And LoveLive is doing really well. Its OP and ED singles continue to chart, and a sales of around 16k is pretty good. Its Best Album is still charted in this weeks album chart after 6 weeks and the total sales is now close to 21k.

This season is heading towards a poor harvest but hopefully we can still see ViviPan and LoveLive selling more than 10k for their vol.1

Love Live! v1 may very well do 10k+ due to it containing only 1 episode and thus being discounted. It is still doing well at Gamers and Softmap, so the Stalker prediction might end up being underestimated considering how Little Busters! went compared to its Stalker prediction.

^ Yeah, the very good response for the last three episodes in a row pushes Stalker projection easily above 15k, and if that is an underestimate it should sell even more.

I think I am more concerned with ViviPan. The sales ranking of ViviPan v1 is dropping in Amazon because the latest event ticket announcement applies only to orders placed on selected stores, so the Stalker prediction for ViviPan can also become an underestimation. Its current Stalker projection is just 6.5k or so. Hopefully it will prove to be following a strongly storefront model like LB!

The feeling you get from importing it yourself and seeing your buys helping the sales numbers is even better... Not to mention holding it in your hands, enjoying the artwork, music, animation, appreciating the hard work that went into it.

Light contribution for me this week, Love Love! OP and ED CDs Bokura wa ima no naka de / We're in the now with DVD featuring a non credit opening animation ; and Kitto seishun ga kikoeru / Youth can surely be heard. I love the B sides too, Wild Stars and Kaguya no shiro de odoritai / I want to dance in Kaguya's castle.

Big week this week... Love Love! Start Dash has already shipped. Ookami kodomo no ame to yuki, Girls Und Panzer 2, Shinsekai Yori 4, BTOOOM! 4, Teekyu and more magazines and books.

Another big week next week... Sukitte ii na yo 3, Sakurasou no Petto na kanojo 2, Little Busters 3, Kokoro Connect Kako Random, Tonari no Kaibutsu kun 4. Books and magazines...

Honestly the Vividred Operation OP isn't that great IMO so those sales are likely from hard core fans of the show overall. I didn't buy it and you know I love to buy stuff... Bluray and manga preordered of course.

Love Live ! Is really fun. I look forward to seeing the series BDs after seeing the BD in u's Best Album Best Live Collection which I love to bits. The singles too. It is an interesting project, they should do a show about making the show itself! Honestly I think that might be a more interesting story than the made up school idols save the school plot. They built this up in such a fascinating way.

This is why the good sales of this CD boosts my hope a bit for a good sales of the BD. If there are that many hardcore fans buying the CD, it should bode well for the BD sales.

When the season started, I included Love Live in the anime I would watch because I always love idol stuff anyway even though their music video released earlier never got me too enthusiastic. So at the beginning LoveLive was just one of the >25 shows I watch this season but I did not hold much expectation. At first it was just the top-notched character animation and funny face/gesture making that got my attention, but the more I watched the more I find myself falling in love with the characters and the show, and by ep.4 I had to agree that for me this has become the top show for this season as I would really wait impatiently for the next episode and re-watch the same episode multiple times. I find it interesting that my feeling towards this series over time somehow coincides with its performance in the sales ranking quite closely.

+++++

For the coming week, the competition is going to be extremely brutal. This is a partial list of discs that will be released this week and I think it should cover all the titles that are remotely likely to chart:

Ookami Kodomo no Ame to Yuki (in 3 different packaging options)
Yamato 2199 v4
Tiger & Bunny movie - the beginning

MS Gundam MS Team 08 BD Box
Gosick BD Box

GirlPan v2
JoJo v2
Psycho-Pass v3
Chuunibyou v3
Busou Shnki v3
Shinsekai Yori v4
Btooom v4
KamiHaji v3

Teekyu
Seitokai no Ichizon 2 v1

Saki Achiga-hen v7
KuroBas v8
Horizon2 v6
YuruYuri2 v6
Total Eclipse v6
Jintai v6
BokuH v6
New Tennis Prince v6
Rinne no Langrange 2 v6

Hyouka v9
Eureka Seven AO v9
Shirokuma Cafe v8
Saint Seiya Omega v7

Code Breaker v3
Hiiro no Kakera 2 v2
Ebiten v4

Btooom!'s anime adaption must have sucked compared to the manga if it has only 300 in DVD sales. Only thing that was nice was the art/animation, that psycho kid's character I think his name was Kira or something, and the opening cause of Nano the rest was just average imo.

The manga is excellent and the anime adaptation is very good. I import both and buy Bunch magazine as I am impatient...

Seinen fight anime, survival stuff just doesn't sell well. Might have been too violent and ecchi for some, not enough for others as the manga goes further past what they do in the anime.

My main hope for BTOOOM! Season 2 is that Bunch doesn't have anything else at the moment. Enough, i don't know for some cross media advertising.

I guess I was very unaware, I didn't know Magi was selling so good. I was afraid to pick that up again (I watched until episode 5) and meet an incomplete ending (since the manga is still ongoing), but seems like the chances of a new season now are high. I'll probably restart watching during Spring or Summer season.

I'm kinda sad for that, it could sell way more - EVOL is f**king glorious campy stuff. I guess is just what happens when you piss off the fanbase of the original series (I still need to watch Sousei no Aquarion to understand what was the big deal with EVOL plottwists), but I'm not sure.

<3 that giddy feeling when anime you love are selling in Japan.


The feeling you get from importing it yourself and seeing your buys helping the sales numbers is even better... Not to mention holding it in your hands, enjoying the artwork, music, animation, appreciating the hard work that went into it.


Nice to see someone else who imports!


Indeed it is great to see more of the import crowd here! We don't just watch the sales numbers, we help to increase them!

Little Buster still sells better than Sakurasou despite the low investment
It is hard to tell how much investment was put in Sakurasou compared to Little Buster. Do you have any hard evidence that the investment in Little Buster is low?


Common sense. Anyone can tell that the budget for Sakurasou is far higher. Little Busters has some of the worst animation of the season, along with QUALITY everywhere.. which isn't excusable for such a big property.

In what way? Many said the awesome animation in Nobuna must mean it uses a very big budget, but it turned out that in number of cuts and more expensive key animation drawings, it uses fewer number than even Saki Achiga-hen. So unless you provide some good evidence why Sakurasou has "far higher" budget than Little Busters, just saying it is common sense just does not cut it, I am afraid. And bear in mind that animation quality difference does not always translate proportionally to budget difference. (then there is the question of whether Little Busters really has "some of the worst" animation among all >30 series running in this season, which is of course debatable)

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.

This thread is proof that Sword Art Online is the best anime ever made.

I'm watching over 30 current shows, so I'm pretty confident in saying it has some of the worst animation of any of those shows. (Well, of any that actually try so I'm not counting flash stuff like Osaka Mama)

And you can try to defend it all you want, but the animation quality is probably the biggest issue with Little Busters... if it had more budget, it could have truly been something special. Theres more than enough examples of crappy budget like the 2 frames of animation when Rin was playing with cats early on, to quite a few times when characters don't even blink for long periods of time while talking. But just half assing it since they knew it would sell regardless is what happened.

Anyone know if A-1 Pictures fixes up animation blunders for their Blu-ray releases? And if so, how much?

Animation is only part of an overall budget. Even if Sakurasou did turn out to have a higher animation budget (as opposed to just more efficient/skilled animators) Little Busters could still be more expensive to produce thanks to marketing or television broadcast fees (it's airing on nine to Sakurasou's eight), or whatever else. We don't really know.

I'm kinda sad for that, it could sell way more - EVOL is f**king glorious campy stuff. I guess is just what happens when you piss off the fanbase of the original series (I still need to watch Sousei no Aquarion to understand what was the big deal with EVOL plottwists), but I'm not sure.

At 6.3k Evol sells more than double the original Aquarion anime (2.8k) so I don't know how many (disc-buying) fans there were to piss off in the first place. Even if they did, they must have made up for it with new fans.

EVOL is an abomination of compared to the original, and the plot twist is just a small complaint among other deficiencies.

Wow, I didn't know Sousei sold so bad. This just made me more impressed that Satelight and Kawamori could make this sequel (though it was obviously aiming at new fans too).

If I remember well, EVOL first volume sold around 8k and the final volumes dropped a bit, so I thought that was because of the plottwists that, according to some fans, were a bit contradictory compared to the revelations from Sousei. I saw a lot of rage from Aquarion fanbase towards EVOL when the last episodes were airing.

Well, as someone that don't know Sousei, I quite enjoyed that mess. I couldn't really take too seriously the epic plot and the finale had some inconsistences, but the characters and all the LOVE IS GLORIOUS themes were over-the-top and honest enough to make it entertaining for me.

It did drop from the first two volumes, but they also had event ticket applications and Vol. 1 was slightly cheaper. below is each volume and the number of weeks of data we have:

Vol. 1: 9,638 (2wk+monthly) ← event ticket
Vol. 2: 7,830 (2wk) ← event ticket
Vol. 3: 6,571 (1wk)
Vol. 4: 6,439 (1wk+monthly)
Vol. 5: 5,734 (1wk)
Vol. 6: 5,220 (1wk)
Vol. 7: 5,337 (2wk)
Vol. 8: 4,933 (1wk)
Vol. 9: 5,509 (2wk)

Dropoff was pretty industry standard after the event tickets ended, so it's not clear there was any massive backlash, at least among the people who were buying it. The event ticket effect was just a fairly large one.

I wonder if showing up in a Super Robot Wars game would give EVOL a nice sales boost. It probably won't happen this year, though.

For the coming week, the competition is going to be extremely brutal. This is a partial list of discs that will be released this week and I think it should cover all the titles that are remotely likely to chart:

GirlPan v2
JoJo v2


Funny how the two frontrunners of Fall 2012 are releasing volume 2 on the same day.

I wonder if GuP Vol 2 is going to outrun its logistics train have supply issues like the last one. It'll do well in the long run, though. Episode 3 is when the series truly starts to rock.

Thanks for the info. Vol. 1 sales were bigger than I thought.

Go Jojo! Hope all of the parts get animated, I'm still curious if they will be doing part 3 or not...

As for GnP... I don't understand the appeal of that show, but yeah I'm not a Japanese Otaku, I guess they make good material for body pillows or w.e

Are you importing it? I am but apparently I am not a good bellwether as I am importing the biggest hit and the biggest bomb... What can I say but I import what I like, not what I think needs the help or that will be popular. My list of fall imports:

Not out yet: Teekyuu

*1, 28,194 Girls und Panzer
*7, 11,609 Little Busters!
13, *3,649 Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo
15, *2,494 Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun
23, **,528 Shinsekai yori (vol.2)
25, **,345 Btooom! (vol.3)

Out of the rankings

It's a bit difficult to import anime at Japan prices when you've been out of work for the last 5 months and haven't even been able to get unemployment benefits most of that time due to technicalities. I haven't even done any manga/LN orders from Japan either since early December last year.

I wish I could but I honestly can't afford it. Not that I'd be buying SSY yet anyway, or that my purchases would count towards the rankings - I would want to wait until the entire series was out before buying it.

No worries, it is expensive for sure. Maybe you can get a boxed set one day. Strange but volume 4 is out of stock. Hopefully my preorder is in the box already... But it is waiting for GuP v2 and Teekyuu which should ship tomorrow... I almost split the order but didn't want to spend another ¥2000 on a yet another box...
