I'm happy that Working is selling so well. 3rd season maybe? I hope so :3

So I guess this means the haters are nothing, but haters.

I hope Gundam AGE sells well then the same can be said for this series too, but I'm having my doubts since I heard it wasn't doing too good. Such a shame its actually a great series, but I'll buy it if it ever gets an R1 subbed/dubbed release without Bandai USA around. <3


Glad to see the Another opening and the new Beelzebub ending those are actually pretty good songs.

edit hey dtshyk how come Horizon total sales didn't increase after we added 18k from the 2nd volume
shouldn't it be around 40k by now if we are adding the 1st and 2nd Bluray sales?

The list explicitly states "(first volumes)".


ah yeah didn't see that, sorry

Nachtwandler_21 said:
Yeah. Most exepted 5-6K sales for Guilty Crown not about 10K


considering the production cost of Guilty Crown, and 10k is actually combination of BD (7k) and DVD (2k++)

you can say that the sales is just good (with profit far smaller than Haganai and Working'!! I belive)

There was some ambiguity about how Guilty Crown would do, but so far there's zero ambiguity about AGE. Estimates are currently at 1,491 BDs and 584 DVDs with less than two weeks left to go. Even if those are massively underestimated (say by 100%) there's no way it hits even 5k.


should we blame Level-5, sunrise or both? LOL

Well the series does get better near the end of the first generation so maybe more people would buy then?

Oh well as long as it gets a subbed release here in the states I'll be happy. Cause I'm not going to pay R2 prices when the complete collection comes out here in a few months especially if its going to be unsubbed.

Go guilty crown prove these haters wrong, a solid 10,000k hit in your face...


But what did you mean?
That because if sold a lot of copies/earn a lot of money/ it's not a mediocre show?
With this line of argument how should we call Pokemon, Precure, Naruto or rest of that money bringing machine? Masterpieces?

you can say that a show is shit, mediocre or whatever you like because I believe every person has a different taste and criteria for a good anime

good sale is just proof that more people watch it, like it and think that's worth to spend the money to buy and collect or maybe even rewatch it in the future.

as simple as that

Mashiroiro got out the rankings, pretty much expected it not to sell so well however it did end up selling VNs like hotcakes though.

Didn't expect Guilty Crown to sell that many copies -_-
Hopefully Un-Go will be in the rankings nxt week since it was only released a few days ago ^-^


Guilty Crown got a massive surge in preorders after episode 12, and has been constantly in the top preorders since.

Anyway, glad to see it doing well. It gets far too much hate and I didn't want it to be a complete flop.

I don't like Guilty Crown, but its success further proves that original properties can sell. If it at all inspires producers to take more chances on big-budget, original IP, I can only see it as a good thing for the industry.

As for content, they aren't going to get it right every time, especially when many people making anime aren't used to developing new concepts.

You have absolutely no right or authority to decide that.

And before you try to retort that I must be a GC fanboy, that couldn't be farther from the truth (I didn't like the two eps I managed to sit through at all), but whether I think it's good or not has absolutely no bearing on whether someone else "should" like it or not. That's just arrogant as hell.

What's this?

The Log Collections are a series of One Piece DVD boxsets. This is, I dunno, probably the 10th or so. I imagine they'll be going on for a while yet given how long OP is.


No, Guilty Crown is that bad.

There's no such thing, no matter how desperate you are to inflict your opinions on others in the guise of imaginary "objective facts".

Well, DVD/BDs aren't all that relevant to HxH's success, it's a Shounen Jump adaptation after all. Its purpose is to sell more manga and merchandise, and I guess TV ratings.

The only one of the super-long Shounen Jump fighting anime adaptations that sells high numbers as TV anime these days is Gintama'. One Piece's boxsets sell very well, but the individual releases of current episodes don't. Bleach used to pull in 10k+ the first few major story arcs, but not anymore.

As for Chihayafuru, well, same thing, albeit to a lesser degree. Long as the manga sees a sales increase, the anime is doing its job.


It is not imaginary.

Let's hope that with GC's sales, other studios won't take it as an example and start making original anime like GC.

People don't seem to learn. Guilty Crown is the exact type of show that sells well. I"m surprised that it only did 10k first week. Not a bad start.

Eh, it was expected to be a 20-25k type hit from the start, so its still really disappointing... with the major animation budget and all the marketing (I hear they even had ads for it in movie theaters), I'm not sure if 10k is enough to make back what they spent on it.

if I were the producers, I would rather spend my money on Haganai or Working because it cost less and sells more

talk about profit here LOL

Hm, I didn't check GC in the last few weeks before it released, but when I checked yesterday, Stalker was fairly close. Underestimated less than a thousand each, I think it was, on BD and DVD. I certainly thought Stalker had a lot less, hence why I thought it'd be about 6-7k, but figured maybe it got a lot of ppints in the end while I wasn't looking.


It was on pace for a lot lower, but it ended up being in the top 40-50 every day the last two weeks after episode 12 (which had a major plot twist). It just needed something to make people care about it to help its sales.

jmal said:
So Stalker did adjust again? I know they adjusted for the Bake and Toradora sets, which threw me at first because I remembered Stalker being way lower than what they really put up, then when I went to check it was almost exact. If they adjusted, do you happen to remember where it was pre-adjustment?


As far as I know (since I check it every day), its the same. They have a more accurate point tally now so its sales will likely be within 15-20% of the points.

The autumn rankings suck :/

Persona 4 is okay, but Horizon?

Last Exile should also be higher.

Not to speak of Chihayafuru, Mirai Nikki and Kimi to Boku. Their sales make me sad.

Phi Brain deserves to be out of the rankings, but seeing Un-Go and Hunter x Hunter doing so bad is frustrating. Especially with HxH, I hope the sales get better otherwise I fear they might not ger further with the adaption of the manga this time.



It's good to see Tiger & Bunny do so well though, at least some good shows are appreciated.
Can you hear me, Major Tom?

Mashiroiro Symphony might end up close to 3k once you count the DVDs, so it actually did a bit better than expected. It'll end up one of the better selling Manglobe series (not that it means much since their series always flop).

Persona 4 having a high number of sales is great. I just hope they consider animating Pesona 3 FES too.

5,000 for a two cour show with fairly high production values isn't necessarily great these days. They may or may not break even - it's hard to know. "Arthouse" doesn't really have anything to do with it. "Indie movie" economics doesn't really apply to most broadcast TV anime. It needed to make that money no differently from any other show.


I wouldn't say Penguindrum had fairly high production values though. It looked pretty due to nice art direction but there were definitely cost saving methods used in terms of actual animation.
