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.

DAL is higher than Oregairu. And looking forward for Valvrave 2. I hope the quality increase with that sale. And Preserved Roses still selling. I guess Nana ft T.M really is awesome combo.

I want to see summer list but it still too long for that.
Kickstarter for Rokujouma is fully funded. Good work everyone. Lets wait for the result of our hard work together.

Yeah, even when the full week result is out later this week and it adds some to the sales total it won't go beyond 10k since the cut-off today is 1155 and OreGairu is 1512 below 10k.

By the way, for Kanato's character song, it's actually Kirisaki★CARNEVAL (切断(キリサキ)★舞踏会(CARNIVAL)) (the katakana and English above the kanji wrote that).

Apparently the anime is NOT based on the story in the game, so your question about the stock is not really relevant.

I will add the extra data as parenthesized text then. I don't think what I write is wrong because the song title is meant to convey the meaning of the kanji as well though the furigana (those parenthesized text) serves to define the kanji words in the context of the anime, so I don't think Kirisaki★CARNEVAL is the best way to write the song's title.

Objection. UtaPri IS VN. With Rhythm game elements but it's still a VN.

Good to see HaMaou selling well. Hope it won't fall much on later volumes.

And I always wondered: why posting a ranking by maximal sales per volume? Average one would be more informative

...
Still not sure it will get there but remember that OreGairu 1 had stock issues. It is in stock on July 20th so assuming the restock isn't swamped by other stuff that week it should get a disjointed tail for another chance at 10K.

Good to see LoveLive! both Lily White and NicoRinPana there. And Mimori's second single, glad to see it there, hopefully it has a decent tail too, quite enjoy that one and looking forward to her third non-anime single.

Preserved Roses seems to be having stock issues still. The LE has been sold out at amazon for a while though CDJapan seems to have a bunch and the cheaper REs.

I raised this issue awhile back, when symbv started handling the Anime BD/DVD sales thread. Yes, average sales is more informative because it also takes non-bonus volume totals into account. It's just more work though... as you could post the Volume 1 rankings really quickly in these threads.

jmal has average totals over at the Mania, "Anime Sales in Japan - 2013" thread, if you'd like to look there.

IT IS A LOT MORE WORK, CHAMP, AND MUCH SLOWER TOO. That's all I want to say. If you look at Monogatari 2nd season, we will not be able to know the full details of averages of this season until 2014 September (when the last volume of Monogatari 2nd season will be released) !!! Which means up till 2014 Sept we will need to keep updating averages for anime in this season. I wonder if you would rather wait until 2014 Sep to see the "more informative" averages chart for 2013 Summer season or have a vol.1 chart ready for discussion when this summer season ends at around 2013 Oct. And even without such long running series we will still need to keep the average chart for all the anime from the last 2-3 seasons just to keep track of the sales of the 1-cour shows airing in different seasons as their BD/DVDs come out. I hope you realize that.

At the end, the vol.1 is a most handy and quickest way to catch a glimpse of the relative performance of anime for the most recent season. Of course we are saying a probable sharp fall in sales for a few titles' vol.2 in this season so perhaps a vol.2 sales chart can be considered.

Yes, all kudos to jmal. A running total of averages is a bit less work than charts of averages for every season but still A LOT OF WORK. He is doing the western fandom a great service.

OreGairu Y U NO pass 10k mark
Yeah, even when the full week result is out later this week and it adds some to the sales total it won't go beyond 10k since the cut-off today is 1155 and OreGairu is 1512 below 10k. ...
Still not sure it will get there but remember that OreGairu 1 had stock issues. It is in stock on July 20th so assuming the restock isn't swamped by other stuff that week it should get a disjointed tail for another chance at 10K.
Well, all I wanted to say there is that it will not go above 10k THIS WEEK, but I am still hopeful that it will eventually cross 10k line when the restock is sent out.
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.

Aikatsu! is doing relatively well. Hopefully it gets a second season.
Nothing is bad for being in any genre or demographic, especially anime for kids.

I know there to get averages. But you are exaggerating the hardness of the process:

1. Averaging itself could be automatized in Excel or any other program. You just need to add sales of next volume and update the list
2. And I don't understand the thing about waiting till the last volume. I mean update it than new volume comes out. You post the ranking every week so it won't change much.

Just that current numbers don't give us the real situation cause most of the series fall in sales after v1 and a lot of fall too much like Magi.

UtaPri is NOT a VN !! It is adapted from a game!


Visual Novels are games...

1. I don't run program on my PC. And for the mere "just need to add sales of next volume" you mentioned, either I make a program to grab the data from Oricon, parse it , translate it, and feed it into a spreadsheet and get the updated sums, then generate a sheet with url of MAL links automatically, or it will be quite a series of tedious manual tasks at every week. We are talking about updating the data not just for the vol.1 of each title but all volumes of all titles for all the weeks they are charted (not just in the Tues list but the full list that comes on Thu/Fri/Sat - which day we are not certain). If you think you can help, mind writing a program to help us with this automation task?

2. You totally misunderstood what I said. I clearly mentioned about the need to update when new volume comes out when I said "And even without such long running series we will still need to keep the average chart for all the anime from the last 2-3 seasons just to keep track of the sales of the 1-cour shows airing in different seasons as their BD/DVDs come out." The part with waiting till the last volume is about the final picture of "averages" will not be known until we have the last volume for all the titles of the season out. And we will need to keep posting such a chart every week until then.

Fair enough. I guess I made a mistake here as I had some other types of game in mind. And since the anime is based on original story I don't think the stock in the game is relevant anyway. I will correct my post.

Ah, so BDs came out for Blue Exorcist movie recently. I can't wait to watch it soon. (88 minutes in length I believe)

Also, it's nice to see Hataraku Maou-sama! vol.1 doing so well on the chart, hopefully enough to booster a season 2. I heard the LN still has a lot of material to cover so...

it is funny that in japan limited edition sells more than regular, which defeats the idea of 'limited.' someone must tell that they are doing it wrong.

The only limited ones lately seem to be the Manga + BD/DVD which often have an "order by date" associated with them and they don't seem to print more after that. Those manga, usually with a different cover, actually are limited edition for once. If you're a real supporter you buy the RE too since the LE won't match the rest of your collection and it's a good excuse to double dip! LOL

In fact almost all the BD you are seeing on the chart I posted are "limited edition". This is getting so common that often only the "limited edition" is available and no "regular edition" is made. This is also why I get rid of the label of "limited edition" for the titles in the chart unless there is a "regular edition" also charted. If you see a BD entry with no tag about the edition, you can safely assume it is a "limited edition".

It was released, but neither DVD nor BD made it onto the Oricon rankings. This means DVDs sold something less than 429 and BDs sold something less than 211.


thanks for the info.

That's some good prospec there for Railgun.
Kickstarter for Rokujouma is fully funded. Good work everyone. Lets wait for the result of our hard work together.
