You've been watching Chaika right? Please tell me you've been loving Yuuko Hara's voice ( Isn't she great as Akari!? I think she could be a young up and coming seiyuu and I hope she gets more roles!

Hahalollawl | Yesterday, 10:06 PM
I was sort of yanking your chain lol. Lied might be a strong word, but that sentence was a bit misleading because you seemed to be suggesting that stuff shown in that time slot doesn't need sales as much. But not every show in that time slot has a broadcaster on the production committee, so it's really more about who is on the committee than when it airs, right?

Hahalollawl | Yesterday, 2:30 PM
So what's more important is whether or not there's a tv station on the production committee...So I should just ignore:

"It is shown on Tokyo MX on Sunday nights at 10pm which is a time slot which doesn't need disc sales as much as stuff shown at 3am on Tuesday"


Hahalollawl | Yesterday, 1:12 PM
Okay, then can you clarify your previous comment about the time slot then? You've confused me...

So what DOES the time slot imply? Why are some anime late night and some are not? Even Nagi no Asukara was not after midnight, but they probably still wanted to sell a lot of discs right? So NagiAsu and Koiuta are prime time but don't benefit from advertisement sales even though they are in the 10:00 time slot? On a related note, iis there a time slot that tends to sell a lot of discs?

Hahalollawl | Yesterday, 9:21 AM
Can the same be said for Toaru Hikuushi e no Koiuta, which I think also aired at 10:00 on Tokyo MX? Although I think it aired on Mondays. Interestingly it also has a box set right?

Hahalollawl | 04-16-14, 11:47 AM
OHHH, so it's not a late night anime?! Well now it makes sense lol. You shoulda mentioned that earlier...then maybe I wouldn't have bothered you so much lol.

Hahalollawl | 04-16-14, 10:19 AM
So am I right then to think that it seems like when the production committee or whatever decides to go with the box set they are not expecting to make much money/profit from the BD/DVD? Perhaps in the case of Brynhildr they are going for a Manga boost or other merchandise? The way you described it it sounds like the discs are an afterthought...Or at least not as important as they might be for a show with volumes of discs.

Hahalollawl | 04-15-14, 8:04 PM
Hey so I noticed that Brynhildr, which has a box set, is only selling for about twice what a volume costs. Shouldn't it be more like 4-5 times more if they want to make as much as a multi volume set? Or am I looking at this the wrong way?

I guess what I'm wondering is how do the profits/costs of a box set compare to volumes?

Hahalollawl | 04-15-14, 4:07 PM
Holy crap watch out for this week's sales thread. Or if you're a glutton for punishment check it out! It's a doozy! lol.

Oh wow I'm dumb. I see there's an option for "forum avatar." Lmao. I've doing all this work for nothing. Dammit it all!!!!

LoomyTheBrew | 04-15-14, 3:43 AM
hpulley! Bro! It's nice to see a familiar face here on MAL!

And I see you're up for some late night action as well. I'm suppose to be writing a paper right now, but I'm procrastinating haha.

I've been trying to get my profile picture the right size so it will appear in forums. I made it 100x100, but yet it's still not appearing in my forum posts and it's driving me crazy!!!! Maybe it just needs time?

SnackaryBinx | 04-14-14, 9:09 AM
Ahhh I didn't know it was the publisher's fault that quantity was so little, thank god you're here to explain whom I should direct my hate towards hahaha.

Looks like this issue of Earth Star is even cheaper than before, these magazines have been getting smaller and smaller since the first one I bought in December. Last months issue is almost half the size of the December issue, which is crazy.

Does Tokyo Cycle Girls get more story going into it later on? It seems that pretty much the majority of the first chapter was based around drawing Katou into the group, so I'm excited to see a little bit more happen.

SnackaryBinx | 04-13-14, 7:38 PM
Hmm, maybe Earth Star is spring cleaning if they're ending that much in succession. They have had like 4 or 5 new titles start in the past couple months, but I'm new to this whole manga magazine business so I can't say much. I'd be surprised that they'd chop off so much right away though, with Pupa just ending as well and everything.

CDJapan really gets on my nerves with how they stock. I had to wait an extra three weeks because they didn't have Isshuukan Friends 1 in stock, and then they just took Vol. 1 and 2 of that off the website. I just went ahead and bought Vol. 2 off of Amazon but if they have some issue with Vol. 3 I'm gonna blow. I wish more people shipped SAL in Japan ;_;.

What kind of success do you have with asking them about what they have in stock? I want to ask about Jabberwocky 1-5, but I don't know if I should bother at all.

SnackaryBinx | 04-13-14, 7:33 PM
Bah, if she wouldn't say anything on twitter that seems like bad news. I don't want it to end though, it's all too sudden with those 4 pages. It does say it'll continue next month, so I'll just be optimistic that it won't end yet. She has a lot of works to read though, so I imagine I'll have enough time to read the rest of her stuff before she (hopefully) starts something new again.

I try and read what I can in Earth Star, but some of it I just don't like. It seems like Red Eye Village ended this issue so I won't have to worry about seeing those ultra pencil scratches anymore, and yea I don't get Morenja V at all. Like, at all.

I read Teekyuu every time and I can't imagine it won't get a 4th season, it's wildly popular isn't it? If it has a spinoff I don't see why'd they stop. I don't know what the sales were for season 3 though so I can't say anything definitive for not.

I read Yama no Susume when I get the time to. I don't know if I'm missing anything since I'm like 46 chapters late on it, but I assume I am.

I haven't read the new Idol manga yet, but man do those pages look pretty sketchy hahaha. Quadruples seems like it'll be fun every month as well.

Titties and Baseball looks like it'll be more of the same throughout, I can't complain.

I don't know if they'll cancel Tokyo Jitensha Shoujo yet, they just released volume 6, but I didn't know it was selling so poorly. I hope it doesn't end, I just started volume 2 and it's really enjoyable!

SnackaryBinx | 04-13-14, 4:23 PM
Ahh I didn't know that, and now that's pretty worrying. Well, the May issue came out yesterday so I guess we'll have to wait and see if they actually cancelled it. I can't imagine they would, a fifth volume would be ultra short with the 3 chapters or so chapters not in.

I don't see it being the last chapter at all though, or I just don't want it to be. This wasn't even numbered at all or anything.

Either way, Holy Holy is getting pretty good I think. Next chapter is a must read according to Earth Star (like they wouldn't tell people to buy their stuff though, lol).
