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 impressive results for Free!. With v2 and v3 having bonuses this could get 20K average. Although it's not my style of anime, I'm happy for it's success because if initial bashing this show received at start.

Yay, for SnK v1 passing 75K.

Just a copypasta job from what I said in another thread, as the content is more relevant here:

Sales of Free! in its first week:

BD15,517 + DVD10,209 = 25,726

It is 70% higher than the Stalker estimate of 15.1k !!!!

It also overtakes the final total sales of KuroBas v1 in just one week:

"Free!" is surprisingly (lot more) better than expected. I guess KyoAni did find a way.

Very powerful event ticket. We'll have sales numbers for v2 next Tuesday, and will get to see how it fares in comparison. It'll drop, the question is just how much.

That explains, otherwise I don't think it would have sold >1k

Even without an event ticket for the next volume, I'm sure it'll do at least 3k.

So there's the figure that Bippo is certain that monogatari will sell less than. Then again wasn't he saying that it would be 40k+?

Anyway, the summer season is looking a lot better than it had been.
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.

At this point is Monogatari going to sell more than 40K? Still lots of time until it comes out but it doesn't look super strong at the moment. Do we have a current estimate for Monogatari SS?

Doesn’t look like it, but V1 and V2 could also be underestimated. And there is also the possibility that the numbers will vary heavily, depending on the popularity of each arc.

I bet all those people that brought them were all female.


Considering that the target audience for Free! IS female, you shouldn't be surprised at all. But remember, symbv said that many otaku in Japan are also enjoying Free!, even those who initially called it fujoshit and were dissing KyoAni.

You know why Free! Sold so well? I know: because it's actually GOOD. Surprising, isn't it?


Depends on what you're looking for in anime. I dropped it halfway through the first episode since it was nothing but male fanservice and fujoshing pandering, so it wasn't good to ME. But if you like that stuff, its probably a top tier anime due to the animation and direction.

Awesome sales for Free!. Toward its release date I bumped up my expectations to 20k but it's nice to see it went above that at 25k. These numbers should hopefully stay consistent since v3 and 4 come with event tickets. Hopefully v1 will hit 30k in the next few weeks.

Free! is a good anime, I don't understand the hate and it's not only for fujoshi.
Great for Dragon Ball too.

You know how some anime have full ecchi in the first two episodes and then for the rest of the anime they actually have plot development and drama? Gradually the amount of ecchi decreases? That's the case for Free!. Episode 1 is 90% fan service but by episode 5 or so there aren't many male fanservice scenes. Granted it still does have fujoshi pandering though. Just thought I'd point that out.

It seems quite likely with its sales we'll be hearing from it in some form again. I expect it might get another season.

You know what, I expected full-blown male fanservice and fujoshi pandering when I started, and to my pleasant surprise I find the first episode is sooo moderate in terms of male fanservice and fujoshi pandering, and there is even male otaku appealing (no, I won't use the word "pandering" because this is used here mostly as a term to mean "stuff I don't like that is there" LOL) elements there. And on top of it there is a solid story out there. Of course there is the good sakuga, direction and music, so all in all I am quite happy with the end product. Even though it is not to the level I'd buy the BD/DVD, it is a very well done *and balanced* piece of anime.
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.

considering that tamoko market and chuuni sold less then Free! and still got another season means the chances are high.

At this point is Monogatari going to sell more than 40K? Still lots of time until it comes out but it doesn't look super strong at the moment. Do we have a current estimate for Monogatari SS?
Latest estimate from Stalker is 38.7k for NekoShiro v1 though I suspect Stalker underestimates quite a bit here.

LOL Once the extra content of the visual novel is revealed to be the past of Levi and Erwin, the ranking of v3 jumped from #6 to #1 and v6 from around #50 to #20 !!

^ Wow, kind of expected, but still a powerful shift; the extras are sold out as of now.

Is it me or the pair is becoming increasingly popular with the latest manga chapter, too. :)
