Lol 2.6k Sales on ERASED. Ahahaha... That's kinda funny. Guess Japan didn't like it much at all. Bad wording.

Glad to see KonoSub Sales doing well. First time seeing Gintama sales on here... But as expected, they're low. No long-running anime really sells that well iirc.

it was popular in japan but the story was finished so there wasnt a drive to buy the bds which were split into two $170ish 6 ep volumes. + honestly as a consumer id rather go out and buy the manga instead of bds so considering all that it didnt sell too bad.

*4. 13,102 13,102 ARIA The NATURAL Blu-ray BOX


Couldn't have asked for more love! Thank you!

Also, pleasant to see both KonoSuba and Gundam IBO doing pretty good! Both got their well deserved sequels announced already! Despite the decline in numbers, Gintama remains the only long running shounen that makes the cut-off once in a while, but last 15 episodes have been sensational so it's nice to see it there.

So, GATE numbers are halved, reflecting how bad the sequel season has been? And good to see Boke Dake numbers. Deserved nothing more.

Not even funny:

1. This type of series generally have even lowed disk sales
2. People bought manga. A lot. It had something around 6x bust.

With those sales, Osomatsu is bound to get a second season at some point.

Highest score on anikore for Erased this season, by a lot. Tons of good anime fail to sell in Japan. Its source material boost was huge.

Easy to see why Konosuba got a season two, hopefully with a little higher budget and a few more episodes!

2.6k disk sales is anything but good for a 12-13 episode show. They didn't even break even in terms of disk sales. Let's not talk about manga here because I already know the manga sales. I'm talking about DVD/BD sales.

I don't see how can it be funny. It must be rather depressing for the ones who created and animated the anime.

I recommend it as well! It's cast is really loveable, although I will admit there is the occasional weak episode

When you put it that way, yes. But as someone who thought the show wasn't that good, I found it funny since the show was well-liked by a majority so I thought it would sell at least 5k+ per a Volume.

Definitely something wrong when you wait for the Japanese anime disc sales figures to come out... the non event ticket volume no less, before you start watching a show... J/K

Looking at this list to judge whether a series was a success or not in japan seems rather foolish to me since there are a lot of other factors.
this is just one piece in a puzzle and all the other pieces are missing(they aren't really revealed to the public)

If 2.6k is a failure then basically half of the season is a failure and there was some sort of loss of money involved...

I mean reikenzan didn't even feature in the list so it must have done less than 1.5k and its getting a second season

Did you read my comment? Shows like BokuMachi and Rakugo generally sale around 700-1500 copies. Both of them getting more than 2k is already a miracle. No one ever taught they would have decent disk sales. So your laughing about it just looks stupid.

It seems you failed to read mine. I don't care about its manga sales. I'm primarily looking at its disk sales. Nothing else. No one ever thought they would have decent disk sales? News to me. I did and so did quite a few people I know.

@umashikaneko

Maybe I should re-word myself then. What's the reasoning for the low sales? You would think people who liked the anime would support it by buying the disk sales. Yes, it got a HUGE boost in manga sale, but the BD sales are really low. As someone who thought it'd go over 5K, it's kinda funny that it didn't.

Osomatsu-san and Owarimonogatari's going great! I wasn't expecting Boku Dake to hit the top 20 actually (since Japan's not to crazy about it). With the next Gintama volume having some of the most important episodes of the series, hopefully it hits the top 10.

Osomatsu-san and Owarimonogatari's going great! I wasn't expecting Boku Dake to hit the top 20 actually (since Japan's not to crazy about it). With the next Gintama volume having some of the most important episodes of the series, hopefully it hits the top 10.


If the recent rise in Gintama manga sales is anything to go by, the next volume should sell much much better than it has been. However in saying that, it's still way above average for a long running Shonen series. Not to mention Gintama still gets a lot of it's revenue through merchandise.

Maybe I should re-word myself then. What's the reasoning for the low sales? You would think people who liked the anime would support it by buying the disk sales. Yes, it got a HUGE boost in manga sale, but the BD sales are really low. As someone who thought it'd go over 5K, it's kinda funny that it didn't.


Noitamina show usually don't get that high sales because it target different audience than the usual one(who can afford BD) even shows like Psycho Pass which is one of their most popular series sold about 9k and surprisingly its movie did better than Kizumonogatari which its series still sells double what PP did.

Erased is very well received among Japanese fans and even got a live-action adaptation of it which proves the series popularity. just remember Anime BD have high prices which a lot of people can't afford.

Do you need to watch a series like BokuMachi again?

Since it's over, buying it doesn't support the series as such. You support the author more by purchasing the manga as their royalties are much lower on the discs since there are many other people involved.

There are many, many factors that go into the number of discs sold and whether that means success or failure of the project. Often the Noitamina stuff gets enough money from the TV deal that the disc sales are less important but Aniplex still wants to discs to sell well so Aniplex probably doesn't see this is any sort of big success. They don't expect all their shows to be big hits of course but they hope to get their money back at least from what they put onto the production committee table as the disc producers.

Still, these shows must make some money overall, otherwise big businesses like Sony, Bandai... they wouldn't bother if it didn't make money. Bandai is pulling out of the Arcade game market because it makes no money for them anymore. If anime was losing them money, they'd drop it pretty quickly. Same goes for Sony, they aren't making anime just to say they're making art, expressing themselves... they're making anime, music, etc. to make money. The shareholders will punish them if they continue money losing business practices.

just slightly reminder that tokyo ghoul is not even breaking 3K when releasing first volume IIRC.

disc sales is extreamly pricy. not everyone can afford that. they are targetted to very niche market, that's why. in general, common people will prefer to buy original source since it's much cheaper. only hardcore fans *cough *cough otaku would commonly buy that.

@hpulley , if it's not that profitable, why it soo common nowdays? i though anime producer got very nice profit, that's why they keep producing this kind of shows.

Yeah, that's why I tried to reword myself. Since shows like Tokyo Ghoul had good manga sales but terrible bd/dvd sales.

Osomatsu-san still selling like hot cakes. Nice, really hoping it gets another season in the future. Owarimonogatari breaking the 20k+ mark too.

It's nice to see that Aria still selling well after all these years.
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.

I didn't say it wasn't profitable. Everyone else is claiming that shows with 2.6K disc sales aren't profitable and we just don't know that. There is a much bigger picture out there beyond the disc sales. It is fine to follow disc sales, celebrate high sales and be worried about low disc sales but the question of what shows are profitable and which shows are not profitable cannot be answered here alone. Even for a show which on the whole is profitable, there may be winners and losers at the production committee table depending on what products and merchandise sell well and which do not. In fact I specifically said unless it WAS profitable, big companies like Sony and Bandai would not be involved. Small companies can gamble it all but a money losing division in a big company will eventually be sold or shut down.

Osomatsu-san v1 107,906
Osomatsu-san v2 78,480
Osomatsu-san v3 48,121
Konosuba v1 9,516

Good to see Konosuba v1 selling well. 10k average doesn't seem too unlikely if the rest of the volumes continue to have consistent sales.

The first non-event ticket volume of Osomatsu-san did a bit better than I expected and had a smaller drop when compared to Love Live season 2's non event ticket volumes. 60k seems unlikely but it could get close to it after a few weeks. Good to see v1 and v2 still selling.

^ Tokyo ghoul's first volume sold 4.8k copies and it averaged a decent 3.6k as a whole which is by no means terrible.
