reimeiroku and arcana added more this week. I think?

edit: Ah, So Arcana's been updated. But reimeiroku is close to 5k I think....

edit again: Arcana at 3762 for volume 1. not bad. it wasn't discounted either. it'll probably reach 4k in 2-3 weeks. huh.
I wonder if BDs added anything....

Reimeiroku at 5347 copies. so approximately 5.4k. Not bad.

KuroBas volume 3 is close to ~21k if you add BDs as well. Just amazing.

Shame about Oda Nobuna. 4.5k? :( Its not horrible but the animation definitely looked like it had a higher budget than the rest of the summer harem shows. So 4.5k is not enough. :(

Key observations:

- Dog Days season 2 made it over 10,000 again (just like season 1). Clearly it is now the 3rd bestselling anime in the season, above Tari Tari.

- Tari Tari and Oda Nobuna vol.2 both sold almost as many copies as vol.1. Worry about a sharp drop of sales because of a lack of event ticket in vol.2 proved unnecessary.


I believe the Temporal ranking should be as follows, since additional sales data were released last Friday on titles like Boku-H and Hakuouki

So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

I think Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai. is missing from here. It sold 1945 BDs last week to place at 15th.

Anyway, glad to see Dog Days' hit 10k! And nice sales for Tari Tari :)

EDIT: Dakara was added. List is okay now.

Eh? Why? I mean, I can understand about Arcana but Reimeiroku was so good! It was better than the past seasons even imo!

Don't ask me. I'm a bishie fan and otoge fan but I thought Arcana was really bad....and I usually have a high tolerance for bishie anime because of bishies. it sold 3.8k! O_O HOW?

And yet, SukiYo, Kamisama and Kaibutsu-kun won't even sell half of those copies when they are insanely better.

Woohoo! Dog Days' over 10k!

Hyouka vol.4 has 9,881 - incredible, it isn't dropping at all.

I wish we had Jinrui's additional data...

Huh?! Arcana actually SELLS...? Maybe they will have a little higher budget if they ever decide to make a SO2. Not sure if I would watch it though.

When you consider its genre, mystery, sales of Hyouka are outstanding.

No to mention huge boost to LN sales - iirc they tripled thanks to anime?

In other words, Hyouka is probably breaking even in a worst case scenario, purely on Oricon-reported DVD/BD sales alone. That's... really good. it may not sound like it, but it is.

Besides what jmal said, let's not forget the HUGE BOOST the anime has provided to the original novel. I follow a blog by a staff working in a major national bookstore chain which is not an anime/manga specific retailer but a general bookstore. The blog regularly reports the boost in sales due to novel/manga being animated. He reported that he had never seen such boost in sales like Hyouka before.The sales in the 3 months since the anime started to air came to almost TWENTY times of the sales in the 3 months before the anime was aired. And even on absolute sales according to Oricon it was selling at >30000 per month after the anime was aired and it went out of stock many times in Amazon JP -- truly amazing feat for a novel that was written more than 10 years ago (in 2001).

Hyouka and Nobuna, woot!

Really impressed with Hyouka. Usually later volumes go down, but I think it went up? Didn't volume 1 sell like 9.4k? Now volume 4 has over 11k. Was there an event ticket in vol 4 or something, or were these all just late buyers? lol. Damn.

Happy to see Hakuouki on the list.

I always wondered about long running shounen series do they run on TV ratings and merchandise sales alone? Cause I never hardly see the DVD sales to series like OP, FT, Naruto: Shippuden, etc.....

They generally sell like maybe 1k copies a volume. They aren't really made to sell DVDs, its like you said, they run on TV ratings and merchandise for the most part. Generally only otaku buy anime over there and they don't watch the long runners that much, plus you can't really get a sense of completion by buying an entire series unless you pay tens of thousands of dollars to buy every single volume that comes out for those shows.

Let's stop there. I propose we try to break it down with some actual sources, not just gut feeling. Also let's preface by saying that "amazing" is relative (to genre, expectations, etc) and that "amazing" in the context of the posts you're replying to was regarding its stability volume on volume, which is unquestionably amazing (or to be more precise, very rarely seen at such a level).

As of present, Hyouka has sold at least ¥281,140,000, just based on Oricon data (and Oricon does not report all sales). Those four volumes contain 8 episodes, meaning ¥35,142,500 per episode or about $450,000/ep at current rates. The production committee can expect to take in about 55% of MSRP, meaning ¥154,627,000 or about ¥19,328,375 per episode. Real sales are higher than this, but we'll handicap it and just count Oricon to prove the point.

Various estimates on production costs for anime that have been cited in the industry press (see below) range between ¥8,000,000 to ¥24,000,000 (I believe the high end is including broadcast costs though, so lower really), average being around ¥11,000,000 or so. Let's assume, and I think this is exaggerated given that Hyouka is not a high-motion action series, that Hyouka is literally double the cost of a low-end series (and a good 50% increase on the "average" cost) at about ¥16,000,000 per episode.

That doesn't cover marketing (fairly minimal for late night anime) or purchasing broadcast slots. One recent estimate is ¥300,000 per station per episode. Hyouka aired on 10 stations, so call it an estimate of ¥3,000,000 per episode for broadcasting.

Now you're looking at ¥19,000,000 per episode for an estimate skewed to the high end. Maybe a little more for marketing and pressing discs, but nothing game-changing.

In other words, Hyouka is probably breaking even in a worst case scenario, purely on Oricon-reported DVD/BD sales alone. That's... really good. it may not sound like it, but it is.

Why? Because that's not counting profits from one single piece of non-disc merchandise. It's not counting a single OP/ED CD, a single figure, a single clear file or poster or t-shirt or drama CD. It's not counting the 385,000 (minimum) to 550,000 (reasonable estimate) volumes that the anime has pushed in original novel sales. I'm not even counting the most recent volume in that either, which has sold 143,523 thus far, probably 65-75% of which can be credited to the anime, based on how previous volumes did pre-anime. And it's not, as mentioned, counting however many discs that were sold beyond Oricon - some estimates imply Oricon reports only about 50-80% (I'm guessing closer to 80% for Hyouka) of actual distributor-reported shipments or sales over time.

tl;dr Before claiming the sales of an anime are "this good" or "that bad", one really has to stop and consider all the factors beyond pure Oricon data.

Production: ¥11,000,000 Media Development Research Institute Inc. (2010)
Production [& Broadcast?]: $100k (¥8m) to $300k (¥24m) USD Anime News Network (2012/05)
Broadcast: ~¥300,000 Business media (2009/10)
More information - Focused on Square Enix titles (2009)
More information - credit to ultimatemegax and bloo for some of the initial work on this; when writing this I remembered that recent post and was able to use it as a base.


Really nice explanation
I wonder if Hyouka can break 10k average oricon sales If it continue like this

WHY NOT? There are not that many new titles released last week. If Tari Tari and Oda Nobuna were not released last week but instead "Kono Naka ni Hitori, Imouto ga Iru!" were there, then even NakaImo would have got the No.1 place.

WHY NOT? There are not that many new titles released last week. If Tari Tari and Oda Nobuna were not released last week but instead "Kono Naka ni Hitori, Imouto ga Iru!" were there, then even NakaImo would have got the No.1 place.


....that makes me shudder. lolz jk. but even if NakaImo had been number 1, 2.8k for a first volume is bad.

Da fuck is this world coming to.


I bet you're glad its not NakaImo or Dakara H then. besides, Tari Tari's sales are good. Not THAT good though. But Nobuna is....okish sales. It didn't even break 5k.
So while it didn't make an amazing profit, it didn't make a loss either. At least, I think so. I mean, the animation looekd like it was high budget....

anyway, back to the point, just to cheer you up, those aren't exactly great sales for both of them. Its good for Tari Tari but not exactly THAT good for Nobuna. I hope I cheered you up a bit. :D

The point is just to show how pointless DraconisMarch's complaint is. In a week with not many new titles released, even a modestly popular title can make top places, not to say a very popular series like Tari Tari.

In NakaImo's case I have a feeling that the production did not expect sales that is much above the minimum number for a decently made harem/fan-service anime (around 1.5k-2k or so), and the idea is mainly to push the sales of the original LN and merchandise. Judged by this NakaImo is kind of OK, although in absolute number it is definitely not something to boast about.

Actually I would argue that given the sales of the first volume, the sales for vol.2 of Tari Tari and Nobuna are both GOOD, simply because neither shows much of a drop of sales in vol.2 even though the new volume does not carry any event ticket anymore.

So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

Really impressed with Hyouka. Usually later volumes go down, but I think it went up? Didn't volume 1 sell like 9.4k? Now volume 4 has over 11k. Was there an event ticket in vol 4 or something, or were these all just late buyers? lol. Damn.

See here, on the first page. It is going up slightly, and there was no special extra like an event ticket application or bonus episode (there was a box, but Vol. 1 had a box too).

I think it's a mix of the first volume being a little low on stock initially + fans really sticking with it to an unusual degree + buyers coming on late and catching up.

It's of course safe to assume the first volume has sold the most, despite having slightly lower Oricon sales. Outside of very specific exceptions (e.g. Bakemono or Amagami, where discs were focused on one girl's story and some might selectively buy those) people aren't going to buy Vol. 4 and not Vol. 1... I'd bet Vol. 1 is well over 10k at this point, probably more like 11-12k. No way to know for sure though.
I see. Well, it's impressive how consistent it's been. Hopefully it stays that way until the last volume.

I always wondered why Dog Days has no OVAs or BD specials what so ever?

Glad sales for vol 1 are at >10,000

I could be wrong, but last time I saw NakaImo on the list, after the anime, the sales for the novel were....hmmm, I've forgotten now, but they weren't amazing. Am I wrong? >_<

that's true. Sales are still close to volume 1. not that I mind. I like the shows. ^^

Released already on Sep 26.

And sold 1,411 BDs. DVD didn't make the rankings. It seems like it's being released in 4 boxsets on BD, and 16 singles on DVD.


but I think for a show like that, BD/DVD sales don't matter?

Glad to see Hyouka and- to a certain extent- Nyarlko selling so well. No surprise concerning the former since it's KyoAni we're talking about but it is a surprise when looking at the latter. Personally I loved the show and laughed many tears while watching it but I wasn't sure how the sales would reflect that. Glad either way (besides, season 2 of Nyarlko has been announced anyway).

It's aimed at a mainstream audience. Ratings and manga sales are the main money makers. It was also adapted into a live action movie that brought in about ¥1,500,000,000 (~$20 million USD), currently #29 in the yearly Japanese box office rankings. Compared to movie adaptations of most late night/otaku anime it's huge (only K-ON! and Evangelion rebuild have taken in more than that as far as I know).

While most anime we consider otaku anime airs after midnight (hence "late night anime" as it's also often called) and very few people watch them, Uchuu Kyoudai airs at 7:00AM on Saturday and Sunday mornings (only 90 minutes before, e.g. Smile Precure). It's going for a much wider audience, which means more viewers for advertisements. You can't really sell adverts worth anything at 1:00AM when a lot of anime airs, so late night anime live or die by either DVD/BD sales, or merchandise (or both).

I think it has to do with the airing time. It airs Sunday morning, which I believe(?) is a typical spot for very popular shounen and stuff like that. So it has amongst the most viewers of anime and can probably get money for advertisements(?). Plus a lot of people watching = a lot of advertisemetn for the manga.
Unlike shows that air late at night for example, I don't think Uchuu Kyoudai has to rely on sales that much to be profitable for the involved parties.

But jmal can probably tell you more about this, I'm just making elaborate guesses.

e: slow guesses too ^^.

I'm guessing like Uchuu Kyoudai,Kingdom is releasing it's 1st volume later than the other anime of it's season (even though it started a few weeks earlier than the rest of the season).

Oh & Space Brothers is still the best anime ever,in my opinion.Even when competing with Attack on Titan.
