That's it, Girls und Panzer confirmed for #1 of the season. I wonder how much more will it rise with further weekly, monthly and mid-yearly lists. It should already be 20k with DVDs if those ranked at all.

Key findings:

- GirlPan is finally confirmed of its TOPSELLER "hegemon" position for 2012 Fall season by overtaking Chuunibyou with this week's result as the first wave of re-stock is finally delivered. Some are disappointed that the total does not pass 20k this week (partly because Sound Scan, an alternative sales pollster, earlier put the total to 21k this week) but it is clear that it will surpass 20k "Big Hit" mark once the subsequent wave of re-stock delivery happens at the end of this month. The discussion in 2ch has now shifted from whether it will break 20k (it will) to whether it can overthrow KuroBas in its sales ranking position.

- K is doing much better for its vol.4 compared to its previous volume, selling >1k more in the first week of release. Some attribute this to its bundle Drama CD being more popular but I am not 100% certain. Anyway, very impressive.

- Initial-D is doing much much better than Amazon Stalker's prediction. This shows a lot of purchases were done in storefronts. It is clearly one of the most unsung heroes for this season, breaking 6k. However, compared to the >30k sales for the 4th stage back in 2004, the franchise has lost a lot of its allure it seems. Nonetheless we can tell the remaining core fans are still sizable in number.

- KamiHaji is still moving up gradually in sales and has now broken the 6k line. It is easily one of the best selling shoujo shows in recent time.

- The gap between better selling titles and bad selling titles is wide for this season. We don't even see one title that is between 3k-6k !!

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.

BD Box of Minami-ke selling almost 3k? Great!

Hey, not everything has to be Madoka and SAO kinda qualifies for 30-60k ;)
But yeah, it's really strange to see nothing between 2.5k and 6k.

Oops, my bad. I meant to say 3k to 6k !! I have now corrected that. It is indeed very strange to see nothing in the middle.

I thought GuP DVD could get 800-900 in first week and somehow manage to get past 1.3k in three weeks. I think there might be quite a bit of people who decided to order DVDs when they saw BDs are out of stock and will be fine with getting BD Box few years later. That's a pure guess though.

You wouldn't be so surprised if you actually finished the show, last five episodes are good to outstanding, even though first half is rather irritating and boring.

Perhaps because you view things with NONe so much of a SENSE, so you see only NONSENSE?

I am of a different opinion. If I divide the series into 4 quarters, I think I like the 2nd quarter most and then the last quarter.


Anyway, I think MAL should consider adding the sales data for CD Album too. I might as well share it here:

*2 Uta-Prince Sama shuffle unit CD - Natsuya & Tokiya 21,344
12 Love Live! μ's Best Album Best Live collection 9,090
13 StylipS - Step One!! 8,185
26 Strike Witches the movie - Hime Uta Collection 1 (Sanya Eila) 3,966
29 Strike Witches the movie - Hime Uta Collection 2 (Charlotte Francesca) 3,319

Seems Love Live anime is doing a lot to help boost the CD sales.

Ah so it seems. That makes sense then.
And don't forget Ixion Saga v3 also has Event Ticket bundled as well.

Sure, times (tastes) have changed dramatically -for the worst- (sure sure, you dont agree, on the contrary things are better than ever, sure, got it) since 2004, from Initial D which could be at the top then you see whats at the top, so no, for someone as wise and well informed as you present yourself on this forums the series has not lost it allure, simply tastes have changed, in which you do not fail is that core audience remains and makes the series sell 6k which is impressive for the current times and series it competes with, that in itself however should easily tell you the series has not lost any allure to continue to appeal and actually make its solid hard fanbase buy the dvds.

Cant be helped when new and current fans have only eyes for mo... fan... ecc... and pandering.

Glad to see Tari Tari continuing to keep its sales up as expected. Volume 5 includes a special treat: video of the five seiyuu singing a capella and mic'd for different songs, live with the Shirahamazaka high school choir! They can really sing, way better than all the idol girl bands who are dreadful live. Great to see and hear them singing. Was so glad to get my BD last week.

Fun episodes on volume five as well. Shoutenjaaaa!!!!

Anyway, surprised to see 6k of Kamihaji. I'm starting to feel like I should watch it (at least to understand its appeal).

Oh, surely anime fans just have eyes for that. Because it's not like OniiAi sold less than Psycho-Pass, right? *sarcasm*

Isn't it the same thing? The work losing its allure to those who bought the anime back in 2004 is just the same as saying those people have turned to other things and not spending money on this anime any more. One thing you need to bear in mind is that those people who watched the anime and bought the DVD are now 8 years older. They may have stopped watching anime altogether or found other ways to spend money even if they are still in touch with anime. I think you focus too much on how the people in the anime fandom have changed in their taste, but yet those people are the same people 8 years ago. I would say my focus on the appeal of the anime for the original fan base (and DVD buyers) is more appropriate. Your way of thinking is still stuck too much on how the anime fandom is not what it was and so such-and-such work does not sell now etc.

Isn't that what I said already when I said in my post " Nonetheless we can tell the remaining core fans are still sizable in number." ? I think we both are impressed with the size of the core fan still attached to this anime.

Yeah, you have to come back to this, right? Getting too stuck with this kind of bent thinking and colored eyeglasses only gets you misinterpret what is happening in the anime industry these days. As Mary_Vanucchi said above, if only that is true, then we should see moe and fan service anime being top seller every season every year.

But without the ability to order, how can the ranking jump up to No.1 ?? I am really puzzled. At first when I heard about it in 2ch, I thought it was some pranksters or trolls messing around, but it is true, but how can it be possible when you cannot still order it?

Maybe it was up for a few minutes and people just jumped in and ordered and went out of stock again? It was always like that on AKB and some Kpop albums at the music section. Or maybe just resellers from people who had the volume before it got cut??

Now that you mention it. Indeed it is quite possible!! This happens only in the music section before. If that is the case, I can imagine the stock just went empty perhaps in a matter of minutes. The pent-up demand is so great!

I doubt if there are that many people willing to pay almost double the listed price to resellers for the BD...

Girls und Panzer nearing the 20k mark makes me a happy man, as that show is awesome. A well-deserved first place.

Kamisama Hajimemashita doing well also pleases me, as I found that show a lot more charming than Tonari and Sukitte, respectively.

My thoughts. It was the best shoujo series of autumn 2012 imo.


The problem is that the way they finished this series with an original ending makes it almost impossible for there to be a second season. There are implications that become apparent later in the manga if Tomoe behaves like he did at the end and it's very key to the overall plot.

Excellent, it's great to see that Oda Nobuna is selling well.

The prospects of a second season might someday happen if it can keep it's sales up...

Here's hoping.

Yeah. I hope for Oda Nobuna S2 too. It was real surprise for me. Too bad such sales is 50/50 thing. Enough to make the S2 but not enough to really hope for one.

Love Girls Und Panzer, well deserved.

Couldn't get into Kamisama Kiss though. Tried the first couple of episodes, didn't finish the second one.

Loved Sukitte and Tonari but sadly I am one of the few who did.

January 30th, so the data will be out on February 5th along with Magi and a few other shows.

It's looking to do very well, possibly 10k first week if Amazon Ranking Stalker isn't overestimating it.

Thanks for the info.

I'm excited about this! Is it enough to really hope for a season 2?

Glad to see GirlPan adding a good amount again this week.

*9, 11,210 *11,210 Ginga e Kickoff!! "Jinsei Wahaha!"

This may be one of my favorite anime songs 2012. Good to see it rank, but I wish it sold more.

Tari Tari? Really? What is this nonsense?

The show was great, so i dont see any surprise there, and it's definitely not a nonsense.

Suprised to see Psycho Pass v1 at 7k! Grats to Noitamina for having a hit, been a while since since Guilty Crown since a Noitamina show hasn't sold that much on the 1st volume

Dissapointments:

As much as I'm glad that PA Works Hanasku Iroha I mean Tari Tari sold well, I'm dissapointed that this will only encourage them to make more shows in that vein. Slice of life shows are already crowded as is X ( More shows akin to Angel Beats plox!( I know it has a slice of element component to it but the show over all had a different tone to it than its previous works

Moyashimon... I'm sorry your sales are so low....

By that logic, wouldn't they make more shows like Angel Beats instead of Tari Tari/Iroha? Angel Beats easily sold double what Iroha and Tari Tari sold COMBINED, so why would they be encouraged to make more shows like Tari Tari?

Or maybe *gasp* they do shows they like/want to?

Maybe they run out of new ideas.

Since the great majority of anime are still adaptations, it's not usually up to the animation production studio to come up with ideas. It also seems a little harsh to say they're "out of ideas" after just two original shows that only share a limited degree of similarity. I'm not saying I necessarily want them to make more like that - I dropped both of the shows in question. But I don't think it has anything to do with not being able to come up with anything else.

New additions: here
Full weekly list: here

Full list is up.

Top 100 BDs lists are friggin' amazing.

Chuunibyou tops 17k.
Psycho-Pass tops 8k.
Hidamari is mere inches from 10k.
K Vol. 1 is over 9k, and all four volumes rank. 9k for Vol. 1 is a pretty big deal, it was only 5.2k first week.
Updates for Hidamari, Darkness, LB, SAO, Hyouka, even the Strike Witches movie.

Wow, I'm really happy for K over 9K!?? XD and Chuunibyou is inching closer to 20K its sales are way better than Hyouka's eventhough I prefer the latter

One cannot simply re-create an anime that is similar to Angel beats plot because of how complex it's story-line is, that's probably why?

Well an anime is called an original piece for a reason...

K is over 9000!

Those top100 lists are godly, I hope they'll be a norm from now on. Darkness at #3 pleases me.
