Hakuoki. <3 I don't know if I have the heart to watch the movie. My heart is already broken because of the anime. The songs by Aika Yoshioka are lovely as usual.

AND OH YEAH! Noragami OP keeps adding more and more!

It appeared either Japanese viewers switched to the BD version or the 2nd season is equally hated compared to some serious circles. Judging from the movie announcement, maybe the former is true.
Nothing is bad for being in any genre or demographic, especially anime for kids.

It really is a shame that now you're only posting links to your website instead of copy-pasting the data. But I'd probably do the same if I were you.

On-topic: I'm glad to see KlK and boat girls consistently sell well. Of course I'm happy about the anohana movie's sales figures as well. Hopefully a skilled group picks it up soon.

i see Noragami pre-sales are in the mid 4k range, but trending upwards. I sure hope it finishes strong and gets well above the 5k line. There will be No chance for a second season if it finishes barely above the Manabi line.

I'm not sure this is true. It is based upon a Kodansha publication and they seem to care more about manga sales. Genshiken Nidaime got made even though Genshiken 2 was under the manabe line, same goes for Chihayafuru. Yet we never got season 2 of Nazo no Kanojo X even though it got higher disc sales; it has never ranked in the manga charts before or after the anime came out and that seems to be the kiss of death for Kodansha adaptations. Noragami's large manga boost I think is more important for it than good disc sales.

I sure hope you're right. Noragami is my new obsession lately and I haven't been this obsessed with an anime since Free! and KuroBasu.

Your comment about how Genshiken Nidaime was made even though Genshiken 2 had poor sales gives me a bit of hope. I assume that the manga got a good boost after Genshiken 2? I remember asking this question earlier but, how much of a boost did Chihayafuru get thanks to the anime?

EDIT: Since I'm so desperate for Noragami to get a second season, I looked at past lists and collected this data for Chihayafuru:

List under spoiler:


For Chihayafuru, if we compare volume 14's sales and volume 17's sales it got ~70k sales boost thanks to the anime.

For Noragami, it got ~70k sales boost as well.

Chihayafuru went from 163K sales to 242K sales in season one and are now up to 342K sales after season 2 (still). So both seasons seem to have successfully helped to boost manga sales by a significant amount.

Unfortunately for Genshiken, Nidaime didn't seem to give it any sort of boost this time around. I'd say that's it though 3 seasons is already quite respectable. I hope Chihayafuru gets a third.

I'm not sure about those CD singles but I guess Murasakibara and Sakurai's CDs are selling well...? If so then I'm very happy. ^^ Sakurai's CD is good!

I'm so happy to hear that about Chihayafuru. And the second season is also boosting sales, that is really great. I love that anime too and I hope we get a third season as well.

By 163k sales to 242k sales...are you counting that from volume 12 to volume 15?

Anyway, so from season 1, it got ~80k boost. Noragami about ~70k. And that's in one volume. Who knows how much it'll do by volume 11? Please give it a second season Kodansha.

Yes, I suppose I was looking from volume 12. It is hard to say exactly when to start looking for a boost. Some start to get a boost even before the airing date with the news, PVs, marketing ramp ups, etc.

Will be interesting to see if Noragami can rank again this week and watch its disc pre-sales as well. So far it seems like the anime-only content has not hurt its chances. Rabo had me worried... anime-only changes can be a killer to disc sales.

True that. Sometimes you don't when to start looking for a boost. For Noragami it's clear where to look though. xD

Noragami ranking again this week...according to shosei manga ranking, it's rank for this week is #49. It will probably barely miss the list. Ah well, we'll know soon.

Yeah, I was worried about Rabo myself. But he was created by Adachitoka. All the same, suppose people didn't like him? Well, I don't mind the anime-only changes so far.

No, I don't mind him and so far it seems people are positive toward the changes but it could have gone either way.

Also, I figure that this anime-only arc is a good way to end off the series because there's no way they could start/finish the next arc before it ended, and I just hate it when they bait another season and it never happens so I really don't mind this; and it seems pretty good so far.

Ahhh I really hope Noragami sells well!

And I must say I am enjoying 23:00 Flight from Mineral★Miracle★Muse, such addicting song! <3
The whole mini-album is great! I love Namida Hoshi (Tear Star), especially the live bonus breakdown version."Love Reservation - I preordered you" is really good too, all good really! Best thing to come out of Samumenco IMO is Mineral★Miracle★Muse!

haven't heard the rest of the album yet (bc title song is soooo addicting lmao) will do after this!
AND YES I SECOND THE LAST SENTENCE! Mineral★Miracle★Muse is probably one of my favourite anime idols rn

the Manabi line is now fixed at 5K ?

I thought it was around 3K.


Manabi line still hasn't changed it's still 2899 average per volume. The thing is most studios don't want to finance a second season unless the first season far exceeds profit projections. They like to play it real safe in Japan.

Thanks !

So, having 1500 per volume is not that great I guess (Freezing Vibration for instance).

I miss when they used to add a second post listing all the previous sales so I could remember what everything was currently at.

Liken they used to list all the first volume sales.

Trying to see how fucked Golden Time really is.

Golden Time is not golden for sales. Only consolation is they are likely adapting the last novel (came out Saturday) to the end so it should be all wrapped up.

For per volume sales we have jmal's site:

1 1,098 2013/12/25 Fall Golden Time
2 *,757 2014/01/22 Fall Golden Time
3 *,783 2014/02/26 Fall Golden Time

Not looking good...

Speaking of GJ-bu the boxset (er single disc set whatever) is estimated at nearly 6.9k four days out from release which is utterly insane considering the show only averaged 3.3k.

It's not KMB-level rise (box sold 5x singles) even if the estimate is correct (which is questionable, the singles were Amazon-biased so there's little reason this wouldn't be too), but that's a lot harder to do when you sold 3.3k vs 1k.

* Of course it's worth noting the whole season is being sold for the price of one disc of normally priced anime which makes it much less impressive in revenue terms, but still impressive in terms of increase in the number of people who decided to buy it.

The show deserves it, so its nice too see it getting some more money.

Gjbu OVA and DAL2 having good starts. Really early solicit and only 5 volumes consisting of 10 episodes?!
Didn't notice Madoka is now back at the top of the animation category rankings.

So anyway, Chuu2 or Hozuki or Mikakunin? Who will take the top.

Spring should be a lot better for sellers, at least. I'm expecting Love Live 2, JoJo 2, Mahouka, Mekaku City Actors and Haikyu to all do 10k+. There might be one or two others that make it up there as well.

A daytime show? doing 10k? What are you basing that on?

Do you mean Haikyu? Its the exact same demographic as Kuroko, and same studio. I'd expect it to be a big seller among those fans

Yes.


What studio does it does not have a big effect on sales, and demographics do not mean something will turn into a hit. So many shows with the same demographic did not even hit 10k.

They're both hugely popular Shonen Jump sports manga that are big in the Comiket circles. I don't see why you'd expect Haikyu to not sell well, its got everything going for it that Kuroko did as well.

Below 10k does not mean it won't sell well.

The reason I don't think it will reach 10k is because its a daytime show, I can't even think of the last time a daytime show reached 10k.

Gintama? Magi? Ao no Exorcist?

Those female series can sell well regardless of daytime or late night

Magi did not reach 10k, so only gintama. I think you can also include FMA:B. I think those are pretty much all of the 10k+ daytime shows in the last 5 years that I know off.


I'd say the ods are in favor of it not selling 10k. It can obviosly happen, but with only around 10k of all shows reaching 10k, it being a day-time, and popularity does not always translate to BD/DVD sales(oh hey, Silver spoon). I'm placing my bets on it not selling 10k, since it seems far more likley.

Regarding Haikyuu!, I honestly don't know how well it will do.

On one hand, it's fanbase in Japan is comprised of the type of fans KuroBasu has. It's also already inspired it's own doujin events before it's anime was announced. Not to mention, if we compare, it's selling more pre-anime than how KuroBasu used to sell pre-anime.

On the other hand we have another example of a popular JUMP manga which is doing quite badly in sales this Winter, Nisekoi. It was selling almost as much as Haikyuu! before it's anime and it was promoted heavily by Shueisha(definitely more than the promotion Haikyuu! got for it's anime) but volume 1 will probably end up selling ~3.5k - 4k. And that's with an event ticket. Volume 2+ will probably sell ~2k -2.5k. But still, Nisekoi caters to a whole different fanbase.

Did they release the Bluray before all the episodes came out? We've only seen episode 10, perhaps we'll see 11 by the 22nd but not the 12th (final episode) I think.

Seems like it, I can't find any other versions on Stalker.

What is strange, aside from bd's coming out before all the eps are aired, is that the DVD is released on another date(2 April).

Ahhhh Oneechan ga Kita...that's a funny little show. Kind of cute, and enjoyable for a short.

Oneechan ga Kita is good. Not good enough to buy though I do buy a lot of shorts...

Tonari no Seki Kun however, I may have to buy now that the two discs each have a bonus episode AND now it seems the last 8 episodes won't be broadcast on TV. Otherwise I'm not sure I'll be able to see them, and that short has surprised me, really really good! DVD only kind of sucks but at least it's cheap, 77+ minutes per disc for 3800 yen each.
