Still going strong after 115 consecutive weeks, with weekly sales back to 900+. Don't see it ever dropping off the weekly rankings for many more weeks, unless the release of Best Live! collection II on May 27 has any dampening effect on sales.

Glad to see Haikyuu at No. 2.

On the other hand I guess Akame Ga Kill isn't so popular in Japan has people claim it to be. It's just overrated.

Snk recap movie isn't selling as bad as I thought it would. Still haven't watch the 1st movie yet, and to behonest. I'm not in any rush to do so.

First volume of OreTwi that I haven't bought (nothing in the first press bonus that entices me). YuYuYu should be arriving soon.

SaeKano out of the rankings but I guess that is to be expected with the relatively high threshold.
Weekly light novel releases (from 20/10/2014)
Monthly light novel sales ranks (from Jan 2015)
Bestselling light novel volumes of the year/all time* (and more in the same club).
*that there is data for

There is no such thing as shit taste. Only idiots who think everyone should have the same taste as they do.

How do recap movies usually fare compared to the main series (like the ones for Madoka Magika or Gurren Lagann for example)?
5 main aspects I base my ratings on:
1. Did DramaEnthusiast make a thread about it?
2. Is it better than Breaking Bad?
3. Did MellowJello recommend the shit out of it?
4. Has it caused a (very entertaining) shitstorm on MAL?
5. Is it actually good?

Scratch the fifth point, it's not very relevant...

It was released on Mar 18th, and unsurprisingly sold poorly. if the Stalker estimate for it is accurate, it will be in the BD Top 100 (to be released on Thursday), while its DVD sales will probably be too low to even estimate.

LOL, people would rather buy a recap Shingeki no Kyojin movie instead of the main series? -.-

Both Free and Haikyuu are still strong, meh. I hope YowaPeda gets a 3rd season with that sales.

They expected these sales, the real profit for them is the live action, source material and merchandise sales boost.
Why do you think all these anime that sell 1K or 2K and under get made?

Yeah I already know about the live action movie but it still doesn't matter whether they expected it or not. The sales for the anime are still poor.

Sad taste you have there kid you came up to me in the first place making you look more like a kid who got slapped without me even knowing it and start crying about it to me

That doesn't make sense. SnK volumes weren't re-released..for them to buy it again in the first place.

FSN's sales can't be only 6.4k lol.

it's only the amazon limited edition box, stalker doesn't track the regular edition for some reason. so yeah, it will be a lot more.
I am waiting for that 30k numbers. XD

That doesn't make sense. SnK volumes weren't re-released..for them to buy it again in the first place.
Who said they were sold out? It just seems weird to buy a recap movie, half the content was cut out, but maybe people just don't care about it as much as I do. Imo it's a waste of money to purchase a recap of something.

Some people may have already bought the show, and still wanted the movie to support their favorite series. Actually I bet at least 90% of the ones who bought the movie already own a copy of the TV show too.

Love Laika sold well

I'm worried about Kancolle Kai though, it got delayed to August 27th and since the anime will be over tomorrow, being released so far after the marketing phase will affect sales.

I have thought of that, but I doubt that, that's just.. o_o Anime are not cheap. It also didn't make much sense given that the show sold really well.

It makes sense if you look at it on a business standpoint. If there's any possibility to make more money they will go forward with it. Especially if fans don't mine buying things they like.

I wasn't talking about the producer, it was about the consumers. It just seems weird to me that people would buy a recap movie instead of the full series. But then, I think many people don't really care if the content was trimmed, as long as it's watchable and more affordable.

Didn't expect Marnie to be No.1 in the DVD chart since I heard it was quite a flop at the box office.
I'm waiting for it to be released in the Italian theaters. Still 6 months to go.
Even though Yonebayashi's previous movie, Arrietty, was a bit disappointing.
