Its funny when ppl are laughing at Phantom World and calling it a flop when in reality Kyoani takes all the profit or a big majority of it. While Shaft explodes in sales and it all goes to Aniplex.

Learn about different business models before thinking Phantom World is a flop.

Kiznaiver is really a massive flop wow sad for trigger.

Positive Re:Zero vol 1 will reach 12 - 14k. The finale should give it another massive boost. 10K average would be amazing.

Yes since its their property they get the profits. Shaft hasn't seen much profit from the gatari franchise look at their financial sheet.

Trigger is not on the production committee for Kiznaiver. They already got paid ahead of time to animate it. It's the production committee members (Aniplex, Asahi Broadcasting Corporation, Crunchyroll, Sammy Corporation, Ultra Super Pictures, Movic, BS11, in order of how much money was invested) that should be more worried, but some of them are so big (Aniplex for example) that they wouldn't really care as they'd probably make more back from other successful titles.

Kyoani also front more funding so every production is a bigger bet.

If it doesn't sell Kyoani loses money if it does sell they gain a lot.

That's how I understood it anyway.

I might be inclined to go back to my Persona 3 forum set. Is this like the only anime series based on a game that sold well? I can't remember any other game adaptations being well received.
All credit goes to Sacred.

BD sales are not that important, anyways. It's not where the primary income comes.

They give an alright indication of how popular a show is. Can you name one show that sold a lot of bluray copies but was a flop otherwise?

No, at least I don't remember right now, but all around case is quite common. For instance, something like Nanatsu no Taizai, which didn't sell much compared to its popularity, or ERASED, or even something Rokka No Yusha, they made a good money even if they didn't sell lots of BD, and that's just a couple anime I had on the tip of my tong. Not to mention long running shows like dragon ball super or World Trigger.
Now, I could bet my dick, that something like Musaigen no Phantom World wasn't that bad for KyoAni as the BD sales show.

BD sales do not exactly indicate the popularity, but instead they show more the re-watch value and the general amount of hardcore fans. There are many other factors, of course.

Digital distribution is growing exponentially, BD will die soon anyways.

P.S Old data, but the tendency is clear

It makes me happy to see Kiznaiver's......not-so-stellar sales. It even sold less than Divine Garbage Gate lol.

Yes, but you should consider that KyoAny does not sale much merchandise and their LNs are not particularly popular,m son the main profit probably goes from BD/DVD sales.

Honestly? It looks pretty dire, probably even worse than spring. Then again we're only about 1/3 into the anime season.

The only show I can see having a shot to scratch 10k is probably B-PROJECT. It's a show with a big female audience so stalker is likely to underestimate it due to the massive presence of animate.

Only 6 shows are even in the top 500.
Love Live dominates, as expected, and is already pretty much confirmed to be far above 10k. ( 2 entries in top 50 )
B-PROJECT ( 1 entry in top 50, 1 in top 200
Mob Psycho ( 1 entry in top 200 )
New Game ( 1 entry in top 300 )
Thunderbolt Fantasy ( 1 entry in top 500 )
Danganronpa 3 ( 1 entry in top 500 )

The rest is above in the rankings between 1k-10k.

Maybe some event ticket reveals and pre-order bonuses as well as box cover reveals will boost some more shows.

Does Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children count? Because it sold quite a lot IIRC.

Based on ranking performance at Amazon and other retailers, Summer 2016 can be summed up as "Love Live!, then B-PROJECT, and everything else". B-PROJECT seems to have the best shot at being the 2nd 10K of the season, provided it has a huge underestimation. Its Animate performance has been pretty good, although not as good as Love Live!

Who knows, there might be some miracle breakthrough, but it's already close to half-way through the season.

Nice. The Persona 3 movies more than deserves the success. They ranked well in the Japanese box office and sold a great amount of BDs/DVDs. Easily the best video game adaptation i've ever seen.

So Osomatsu-san is that popular, huh? I'm thinking about binge watching it sometime with all the acclaim it's been getting.

It has an entry on MAL, so let's say it counts. Fate/Stay Night (ufotable version) also had very high sales.

Rezero is slowly but surely taking on more sales. I'm loving the tail on vol. 1. It would be awesome if somehow the show managed a 10k average, but I doubt it will get it. Either way great to see it selling.

Learn about different business models before thinking Phantom World is a flop.


Originals like KyoAni creates are risky because while they do get more profits if the show is a success, they also saddle on more of a cost if the show does not do well and Phantom World is not doing well at all.
