Considering it's huge franchise in Japan and vol.1 comes with event ticket, 19,973 for Kancolle vol.1 is pretty low and means the anime indeed have big issues.

Totally expected FSN UBW to fall between 30~35k, as I had doubts it would even reach Fate/Zero levels. 2ch has predicted the 2nd season will do around 30k, so it is really spot on considering the 2nd season also had a drop for Fate/Zero.

Good for Dog Days", as it performed very well at gamers as the previous seasons did. Although it is a drop from the previous seasons, which is a shame.

The anime is hated amongst the fans of the game and the light novel. It obviously would've done much higher than ~20k 1st week, if the anime was actually decent... but what can you do?

I wish they didn't announce a sequel for it tbh, and that opinion is reflected in Japan too.

great sales for UBW, even if it's less than F/Z.

assclass didn't sell that well, but i assume it got a manga boost?

It's the other way round here - UBW is (part of) the original and Fate/Zero is a prequel to it. You're right about the remake part, though I think I've yet to come across a single person claim that the movie version was superior to this TV series.

yep you maybe right, even Sword Art Online season 2 have decrease on sales so it might be a historical trend for sequels to have lower sales

The live action isn't doing too great either( it gets hardly above 2% thanks to it's time slot ) yet there are still 4 season some specials and a few movies

Since the blue ray box set of FSN is expensive as fuck that's a good amount of sales.

The live action isn't doing too great either( it gets hardly above 2% thanks to it's time slot ) yet there are still 4 season some specials and a few movies
I think Garo makes most of it's money from other sources, like merchandise.

Except that Mappa gives no money in those anime. Their job is anime adaptation, and is paid as normal workers


ye anime studios are only hired, but who will hire them more in the future if their works do not sell well though, correct me if im wrong

and how did Madhouse become bankrupt then?

some studios have rich owners that can decide what anime they want to make. Mad house used to be one of them. They failed. And now NTV is giving Madhouse the chance to be back like in the old day. They will fail for sure, again

Fate domination

Also, I'm glad to see Shirobako in the top 5 still. Well deserved and I'm hoping for a season 2 to be announced in the future.

Blu Ray + DVD
19,973 19,973 Kantai Collection: KanColle Vol.1 Limited Edition
*4,977 *4,977 Shinmai Maou no Testament Vol.1

Fantastic sales for KanColle, just brilliant.Deserved in my book as well, I had no prior knowledge of the series (other than the numerous ero doujins I read) but still fell in love with it. Shinmai selling well also, great news, cannot wait for BURST. Both of these volumes were shipped yesterday, with the bank holiday weekend coming up it'll be a long wait for these beauties to arrive.

Mahouka, SAO, Amagi, Cross Ange all staying very steady in sales which is good to see, all fab series that deserve their good sales.


*8,200 *8,200 Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso Vol.2 Limited Edition

A drop as expected but still deservedly high sales for it, one of the best series I've ever watched, can't wait for AoA's release IF it's a lush set.

At least it charted unlike Kiseijuu...
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...

Impressive sales for UBW. Even if it's not as high as FZ it's still impressive.

The anime is hated amongst the fans of the game and the light novel. It obviously would've done much higher than ~20k 1st week, if the anime was actually decent... but what can you do?

I wish they didn't announce a sequel for it tbh, and that opinion is reflected in Japan too.
about 20k ppl from japan will disagree with u

fate/zero sold 42000 in the first week

and UBW is a sequel and remake and they tend to sell lower


It's the other way round here - UBW is (part of) the original and Fate/Zero is a prequel to it. You're right about the remake part, though I think I've yet to come across a single person claim that the movie version was superior to this TV series.
I don't think that matters much, even if F/Z is a prequel to UBW as long as they are related at all UBW will get less sales because it came after, and the studio and format didn't change at all here so just the more reason for that.

Dude, did you know this has an event ticket bundled? So it is obvious where the majority of sales came from. If you actually read the rest of my post, the game and light novel fans in Japan hated the anime and do not want a sequel at all unless the staff is changed. Perhaps the rest who bought it (after the ones who obviously bought it for the event ticket) are people who were not originally game and light novel fans, who think the anime is worthy of their purchase and cannot see the flaws in the adaptation.

But of course I will give the benefit of the doubt, and say there may be some fans who don't mind the obvious bad adaptation, but I assure you they are a minority, since over 56K unique people tweeted about KanColle during its airing run and not many were positive at all.

I used to play KanColle, so it's not like I am some hater of the series at all. I just found the anime adaptation badly done, and a lot in Japan did too.

Well in Japan, individual volumes end up costing the same or a bit more.

Anime is good, fucking deal with it.

People keep saying UBW is overpriced but it's actually fairly normal, it's about $500 or whatever it was but it has 16 episodes, that's about 8 volumes of 2 episodes each making each volume about $62 or $31 per episode which is actually sorta of cheap nowadays (not that much but still cheaper), throw in all the bonuses the BD Box has and it's a good deal.

Anyone can tell me what's a limited edition?

Mushishi's sales is depressing.

Good to know that the fans of the games/LN in Japan didn't like Kancolle's adaption, I thought the anime was meh, it could've been much better of course.

Basically an edition that has more extras attached to it than a Regular Edition. Many series don't even get Regular Editions, though, and when they do they usually sell really low numbers.
Bestselling light novel volumes of the year/all time* (and more in the same club including weekly series ranks etc). <-- No longer being updated. Sorry.
*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.

Regular editions are the ones without "Limited Edition" attached at the end right? This is the first time I've seen so many limited editions on the list.

They are subcontractors for most projects, this won't bankrupt them, they get payed either way.

I'm surprised F/SN did this well given how much inferior it is to its prequel. But I suppose nostalgia weighed in quite a bit on this success.

Nearly every single anime have a limited and a regular edition. This is nothing new, as in the past the lists used to omit "Limited Edition" because the Regular Editions rarely rank at all. Of course in the rare cases where both editions rank, then a distinction is made between the releases on the list. So I have no idea why MAL has recently been putting Limited Edition on everything, when everyone who follows sales already knows they are Limited Editions.

Fate Stay Night. YES!

Cross Ange and Amagi is doing decent.

No Tokyo Ghoul blu ray? Really hope it sell well so we can get RE. I was enjoying season 2 a lot until that shit ending piss me off.
But it's important to remember that a movie review is subjective;it only gives you one person's opinion.

It doesn't matter if you like LoGH,Monster etc.If you are a jobless or college/school dropout living in your mom basement, you are still an unintelligent loser. Taste in anime does not make you a better person.If elitist don't exist, casual pleb and shit taste also don't exist.

Do you think it's possible for Shigatsu to get movie now? Or the score is not that good for this kind of adaptation. It's pretty good but I don't know if it's enough.
Also I'm not a fan of this kind of readaptations, because they just want to milk cows, but I hope they would give it alternative ending or something more for this anime in particular.

Well the sales for Vol 1 of Tokyo Ghoul Root A were given, considering how butchered it was. Japaneses fans are pretty much dissapointed in it. The only way Studio Pierrot can gain trust from fans is by animating Tokyo Ghoul Jack OVA really well. Anyways if you add the sales to season 1 it totals out by about 6K which is decent.

Though the great thing is that the Merchandise is selling really well and it's getting a stage adaptation. Plus the Manga Vols are selling amazingly as well.
