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'm impressed with Love Live's performance, another week, it's already above 25k. I wonder how much will next volumes sell.

Yay, GuP v3 30k! (forgot about DVD at first)

Chuunibyou is dropping every week, I expected more consistency from it. 14k average is obvious but it might not get 15k if final volume (with bonus ep 13) has small boost.

Tamako had ~20% drop but hopefully it will stay above 3k first week.

symbv, a few corrections...
Love Live! is BD only. Also, Hanagai 2 should be 9,371 with 3 times charted from last week's Top 100 BD list.

Because it wasn't that good, at least for me that is. I dropped it within the first few episodes and I heard it never really picked itself up later on.

This LN has an author who is quite well known but the LN itself is not well known, so there is not much fan base in the first place. The character designs somehow did not get much enthusiasm from fans before the season started, so this could impact the initial interest. The first 4 episodes or so, and especially the first episode, looked confusing and directionless even for fans in Japan, and the mythology references with the bunch of explanations also sounded tedious to them (not all Japanese are well-versed or interested in Japanese mythology). Of course the random and sudden turn of events also got some fans to find it tiresome. As is the "brother" whose face is always hidden. It was only after the Sasami's mother's arc that feedback turned decisively positive when the theme and world setting became clear and with focus placed on Kagami and later Jou. But by then it was too late as the anime itself had turned into an "air anime" (an anime that is basically not talked about much).

One thing this anime shows us is that whether an anime sells well or not does not depend so much on which studio or director does it and more on what fans actually think once they watch it. Another thing to note is that whether a certain character design appeals to fans is something that can be hard to tell. The anime itself is full of cute or moe moments, but it does not really help much in terms of sales.

Personally I think it is a hidden gem of the last season and I enjoyed the series a lot, but apparently a lot of fans in Japan do not think so, and the sales suffers as a result.

I honestly think Psycho-Pass should be selling more than Chuunibyou, but oh well. This weeks seems somewhat slow. The calm before the storm next week?

Just to take this opportunity to make an announcement. Next week I will be on travel and will have only limited access to internet. So for this weekend and the whole next week, someone else (probably dthysk) will handle posting news to the News Board, including the BD/DVD sales result.

6, **,880 **,880 Boku no Imouto wa "Osaka Okan"

Too bad it didn't do better. It came with the bonus episode Boku no Imouto wa "Osaka Okan": Uchi no Onii-chan wa Tokyo Rule #1, seemingly implying that there could be a season of her brother's Tokyo Rules since they called it #1 rather than Osaka Okan #13 or just special episode. Loved the bonus episode!

The Asumi Kana interview is great.

The unfuzzed endings are what I'd been hoping for as well.

And the uncut drama and ending song CD is great too.

Very pleased with it myself, too bad it didn't even break 1000 sales :(

Glad to see Chuunibyou doing well. Though I am surprised by sales of Psycho Pass. Should have been selling more than 10k.

No, this is the expected amount. But yeah, I agree Psycho-Pass deserves more than 10k sales.

Nice to see Chuunibyou. I hope it can get another 2k over the next few weeks for a 14k average.

Hopefully the final 7th volume can give it a boost since it comes with a new ep.

Comment only the ranking of the BD because it is the one I'm referring to those Italians! Great to see Chuu-2 exceed the anime series Psycho Pass the double, and even see Tamako in third place! It's nice to see Love Live still in the charts, as well as GUP. Too bad he sold just this week, is a little more than the 30,000 copies! Formidable!

wow, talking about incompetent stocking manager (or whatever equivalent position at Amazon Japan) I thought they have fixed their ordering system after that whole GaruPan debacle, guess not.

I feel bad for Ayahi Takagaki. She is professional singer with high music education and really great seiyuu but she is the least popular from Sphere girls (

I'm sure amazon would gladly have another 5K copies of each; if you had them right now they'd buy them off you. The real blame needs to go to the producers who can't keep up with demand. They've known about the pre-orders for weeks and months and yet they can't keep up.

I'm just glad I put my order for Gup and LL! in 2.5 months ago so my copies on on their way...

How often are shows out on BD by the third week of the season? It comes out June 28th, so data July 2nd. Long way to go.


He said OP. We've had OPs out before seasons start before.

This one comes out on May 8th, however.
Weekly light novel releases (from 20/10/2014)
Monthly light novel sales ranks (from Jan 2015)
Bestselling light novel volumes of the year/all time* (and more in the same club).
*that there is data for

There is no such thing as shit taste. Only idiots who think everyone should have the same taste as they do.

Go Psycho-Pass and Chuu2byou. Kind of surprised that Osaka Okan outsold GaruPan though. Or am I reading the list wrong or confused or something. Whatever.

I'm also surprised with Tamako Market's sales. Considering the sales of the first two volumes, I'm amazed that it sold this much for the third...

Winter anime sales depress me. But when Spring anime sales come along...

6, **,880 **,880 Boku no Imouto wa "Osaka Okan"
7, **,856 29,678 Girls und Panzer vol.3

The list has 4 columns but remember that it is a WEEKLY list so it is primarily sorted by THIS WEEK's sales. So you can see that this week Osaka Okan got 880 sales while Girls Und Panzer v3 got 856 sales but the 3rd column is total sales and there, since it came out 4 weeks ago, Girls Und Panzer v3 beats it handily by almost 29000 sales...

I wish Osaka Okan had 29000 sales LOL

Ahhh, I see so Osaka Okan only beat GaruPan this week and not overall. XD I think I finally understand how these rankings work. Thank you.

It's nice to see Kamisama Hajimemashita too though. :DDDD Is it too much to hope for a second season? They DID kind of foreshadow the Yukiji thing.

Edit: I'm editing for a really stupid reason I just really have to correct my typo, I meant outsold not outside, stupid autoshit. Aasdjfasdkf I know this is extremely pointless but I have OCD for these things and can't let them slide.

It sold only 800 copies, what's so surprising?


880 and one of those is mine so don't sell it short LOL

It's an anime and it is sold on disc so why shouldn't it be on the list??? Shorts are anime's too! This one actually has 45 minutes of anime on it as it has no OP and each ED is sung differently so I say it counts as new each episode otherwise you could knock 6 minutes off as they are just 30s each. Teekyuu which sold much better actually only has 18 minutes of unique anime once you remove the OP, go figure... but I love and own Teekyuu too.

Oricon Daily Top 20 BD/Top 30 DVD Rankings for Apr 23.

Evangelion 3.33 on top as expected.

GaruPan beats out SAO on BD! Will it be enough to dominate when DVDs come in to play?

Stalker estimate for Macross FB7 doesn't put Love Live! to good light... but since Love Live! is more storefront loaded, it will probably rank better tomorrow. For all we know, Macross FB7 may be quite underestimated too.

Little Busters! we know is also more storefront loaded, so it will probably rank above TLR: D in the next few days. It also usually does better on BD, with TLR:D catching up with its DVD.

Hetalia ranking below SAO means it could probably do 4.5~5k... but it could be storefront loaded as well.

Tomorrow's rankings and the next few days will be quite interesting, lol.

Indeed, with sales of SAO coming down to near 30k line for later volumes and GirlPan's sale always near 30k, there are talks among fans in Japan whether at some point GirlPan will rival SAO's sales, if not beating it (volume sales of course, not the average). Let's see if this will really happen for GirlPan v4 vs SAO v7.
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.

That could very well happen. SAO v6 is at ~32k with GaruPan v3 at ~30.8k, it is very close now. It all comes down to if they printed more GaruPan v4 copies than they did for v3.

It looks like they definitely did print more v3 copies as it is still not completely/almost completely dead like v1 and v2 are on Amazon. So that is an upside to this.

------------------------------------------------

Checking back on all the Apr 24 releases, which were temporarily out of stock on Amazon at 12am earlier.

Comparing GaruPan v3 with v4 restock dates. We have a restock date now!
v3: Mar 22 (release) -> 21 days -> Apr 12 -> 14 days -> Apr 26 -> 11 days -> May 7
v4: Apr 24 (release) -> 19 days -> May 13

Love Live! v2 has the same restock interval as v1. SAO BD v7 is uncertain now. TLR:D v5 is still out of it.

GaruPan v4: In stock on May 13, 2013 (BD), Temporarily out of stock (DVD)
Love Live! BD v2: In stock on April 26, 2013
SAO v7: Usually ships within 2 to 5 weeks (BD), Temporarily out of stock (DVD)
To Love-Ru Darkness BD+DVD v5: Temporarily out of stock

Yes! More psycho-pass support equals a second season!
Director claims they'll make a second season if the show gets enough support.

Oh, Arashi is DVD only I guess. No wonder it beat Evangelion on DVD then. If it were split I would expect Eva on top for both.

Soundscan was reporting about 70k Eva BDs sold, but that was for last week's period - that would imply that just the really early street-date-breaking (by 3 days) shipments were 50-100k Oricon, considering Oricon and Soundscan can be quite different. Oricon didn't report anything last week so it's going to count them all this week as it should I assume.

2.22 did 357,304 BDs and 283,029 DVDs opening week, and I bet 3.33 will be much more heavily weighted to BD.

I'm going to predict 450k BDs opening week at minimum. I actually think it could be a good deal more. Interested to see if Eva 3.33 becomes the first non-Ghibli anime to break a million units sold. 2.22 sold 833,422+

Arashi concert DVDs always sold above 550k on the first week. Even if we merge bluray/dvd numbers for EVA, Arashi will still top it. At least on the first week based on your prediction of 450k. Eventually EVA will caught up in the next months. Arashi will stop charting around 750k and EVA will chart until 830k.

Thank god boyband fans don't buy blurays. And DVD sales are on a different category.

Btw 2.22 is currently at 836,338 copies.

Oricon Daily Top 20 BD/Top 30 DVD Rankings for Apr 24.

Evangelion 3.33 still on top for anime as expected. The reason it is not #1 on DVD for All Genres was answered earlier in this thread.

GaruPan still beating out SAO on BD. It will be very close when sales comes out with the SAO DVD normally selling 4~5 times more than GaruPan DVD.

As I expected, Love Live! ranks better on release day at the expense of Macross FB7, since it is storefront biased. Little Busters! also overtakes To Love-Ru Darkness as expected for the same reason. ViviPan also ranks higher...

Hetalia I also suspected to be storefront biased, so it ranks above SAO on Apr 24.
