Are the sales for Mawaru Penguindrum good? I feel kinda sad looking at merely 6,000, especially compared to the 10k+ and 20k+ of bigger hits, because I can tell the director really put his heart and soul into the anime. Then again, I am unfamiliar with the anime industry, which is why I am asking this question.

The sales aren't bad, but they aren't great either. It isn't a failure if that's what you're asking.


So let me get this straight:
~6000 is average returns (MPD)
~14000 is a moderate sucess (Steins;Gate)
~21000 is a success (AnoHana)
~50000 is a huge sucess (Madoka)

Not quite. IIRC it's more like this:

less than a 1000 - epic fail
1000-3000 - fail
3000-4000 means the producers get their money back at least (they suffer no losses but they receive no profit either).
4000-7000 - slight profit
7000-10000 - moderate success
10000-15000 - success
15000+ - huge success

Awesome. That really clears things up. So we should expect to see future adaptations of the same material of shows that fall into the moderate-huge success category?

Also, so there is really no distinction between things that sell like Madoka (50,000) and things that sell like Steins;Gate (14,000) besides the amount of franchise milking that would occur in the future?

The performance of an anime doesn't affect the pay that the seiyuu get, correct? Or any of the production staff for the matter, correct? Starring in bad anime only hurts a seiyuu's reputation, am I right?

(man I'm on this thread a lot.)

I haven't seen Shirushi anywhere, but it's certain to be in C3's 8th ep this Saturday on my side of the dateline. I really want to listen to it.

Its not English, but you can easily just google a certain series, copy and paste its Japanese game and put it into the search engine there. Its the best you'll get that I know of.

His breakdown isn't bad, but there's a bit more to it than that. 3,000/volume may not seem good, but if you get 3000/volume for a a long show (8-9 volumes) rather than 3000/volume for a short show (3-4 volumes), the amount of continued revenue gained helps offset the low sales.

Edit: Ah. Someone else commented with a great article. Only thing I'd add would be the disclaimer about expectations. Let's say new Madoka movies do 25,000 each. That would be considered a gigantic failure despite still making money of it.

Nothing new, really. Glad to see AnoHana still up there with Gintama' and the usual Ghibli stuff. Everything else is pretty much the same. ^_^
