This doesn't surprise me since it's really those people who've already seen the show and loved it that would spend the money to buy the BD. Movies on the other hand are different since many people who buy them are people didn't see the movies in theaters, yet heard how good they are.

Nice to see that the Steins;Gate movie was just as well received as the TV series.

5k underestimate for Steins. Impressive.
Also I feel Kanade Momoko will have a great career in the coming years. 1K sales for a newcomer is no joke. Aniplex/Sony should promote Marina more and not just Lunaluna. Can't just rely on Monogatari alone.

^Tough luck. It might go 35k for the next few weeks but that doesn't change the fact that its overestimated on the first week. It is not impressive for Steins then.

Damn at least it went beyond the amazon limited version. I wonder if it will be the same for the Arepggio amazon limited version.

That's rather disappointing, one of the best shows of Autumn in my opinion. Wasn't expecting it do well though.

Oh and this kinda seems like the right thread to ask (if not, sorry) so does anyone know when the Super Seisyun Brothers Blu Rays are due for release? Searching the sites I usually import from I only see a OST so far.

6k+ overestimate actually.

(20,360 Amazon LE BD + 10,256 LE BD) + 2,464 RE BD + 2,354 DVD = 35,434 Stalker estimate

(25,383 LE BD) + 1,960 RE BD + 1,567 DVD = 28,910 Oricon sales

All versions of the LE BD (Amazon's and other stores' as well as the general non-exclusive LE) are reported together from Oricon.

Actually, Oricon Stalker can't predict first week because almost BD/DVD sell at Wednesday, Thursday or Friday.

Steins;Gate: Fuka Ryouiki no Déjà vu sell Friday 13 Dec 2013 so It's only 2 days before recorded.

Sweet, NNB peaked at 29#. It'll be nice if it can top KinMoza V1, although I love both shows.

Gaileli Donna sold worse than Fantasista Doll and it's a far better series granted it as rushed and has no manga or novel made during or after airing to cover loose ends like Dog Days did.

I'm surprised it even sold 1k, the anime was absolute garbage, although I wouldn't mind whatever the creators were drinking when they thought of this as it seems like it's great stuff.

Yep it has 2 manga (one anthology and a side story manga that ties up the first half of the first season of Dog Days) also an LN with 4 volumes.

It's a timeless classic similar to how Wizard of Oz or Fantasia is to Americans.

You can just go here: http://www27392u.sakura.ne.jp/index_news.cgi and see the current point totals for all the Fall Vol. 1s in the second table.


Thank you. Do you know how people make that list predicting how much each anime will sell in the first week ?

Go onto every entry and record the expected sales figure (the bottom one - "最終予測累積ポイント "), add up all figures for different versions of the same series and then order them from highest to lowest.
Bestselling light novel volumes of the year/all time* (and more in the same club including weekly series ranks etc). <-- No longer being updated. Sorry.

Yeah, it's a really good wrestling show and since the halfway mark, it has really picked up the pace and progression. One of the best shows this season with all the dramatics and action of the squared circle. But a lot of people will come into the series with negative preconceptions of both puroresu and ecchi, so a lot of people are going to be missing out on the fun. Considering the budget, I feel like they did plan for that, so selling 1k is probably a good thing.

I'm glad I purchased the first BD volume, because it deserves my money.

I'm glad I purchased the first BD volume, because it deserves my money.
I really love the manga for SekaTsuyo and in the beginning they followed the manga fairly closely, including the pacing. I think for disc sales the series composition director could have paced it differently to get non-manga readers more interested in the first few episodes. I think they probably lost a lot of people with what happens early and either more flash forwards or just faster pacing of the early stuff might have improved viewership and hence sales because I agree, it is a lot better in the second half. As a manga reader, the most recent chapters are fresher in my mind so I'd mostly forgotten about how long it took to get started.

I'm still not thinking it was ever going to be a hit but I think better series composition could have made it a 2K seller rather than 1K. But you never know...

The main story will be covered in the anime so it does make me wonder. Mangirl! ended right after the anime came out and it is possible this will happen to SekaTsuyo as well. The manga is currently doing a side story instead of the main story, we'll see if it returns to the main story after this or not.

That's rather disappointing, one of the best shows of Autumn in my opinion. Wasn't expecting it do well though.


Yeah, it's a really good wrestling show and since the halfway mark, it has really picked up the pace and progression. One of the best shows this season with all the dramatics and action of the squared circle. But a lot of people will come into the series with negative preconceptions of both puroresu and ecchi, so a lot of people are going to be missing out on the fun. Considering the budget, I feel like they did plan for that, so selling 1k is probably a good thing.

I definitely agree that the slower pace early on turned a lot of people off from the series, but like the manga, it is fairly comparable to actual puroresu and wrestling tropes in general. Wrestling personas need that character development for the audience to have a reason to cheer or boo them, so they do a really good job hammering in the audience's connection with Sakura. But that slow burn character development can take its toll on people who are not used to pro wrestling storytelling, so it is understandable why so many people dropped and dismissed the show after only a few episodes.

So yeah, if they focused a ton more on the action, drama and suspense, they would probably have sold more discs, but at the same time, it would create a misconception that the manga is similar, without all the wrestling tropes that the puroresu audience would be used to, which might not help people get into the manga (wrestling itself is already a hard sell) or hurt the core audience if the series is changed into something like full-on ecchi without respect to puroresu. So while sales are not good in comparison to other series, I think it is reasonable for their presented budget and I'm glad the show is sticking to what the author and manga does best, rather than trying to be something it's not.

I agree and applaud them for taking the artistic approach and doing it properly though I am a bit worried what this means for the series in both media as their good sellers have continued to make more of both while Mangirl! was cut rather abruptly without even a final tankobon volume to put the last chapters into a book! Which was weird in itself.

Seems like they'd intended to sim-end Pupa both manga and anime but then the anime broadcast was delayed a season. So while SekaTsuyo manga has a lot it could still do, Earth Star Could also pile driver it into early retirement at any moment...

Yes! Shingeki & Gintama on top! My favorite franchises!

Shingeki 6 vs Gintama Movie, wonder which will come out on top. I'll give the edges to Gintama, but who knows, since Shingeki 6 has 3 VNs packed , 2 of them about Levi :P.

Shingeki 5 still charting! Hope vol 6 boosts up vol 5 numbers by a little bit. Speaking of Shingeki volumes, would each individual volume fare better if each is packed with 1 VN, instead of cramming it all into vol 6?

Off-topic: I've been reading forum posts and blogs a lot. I heard that Gintama has more female readers than male? Is this true? Would that make it a more female oriented franchise? I just want to know, I'm not ashamed of reading it. If I were, I wouldn't have read Orange, NaNa and Chihayafuru :P.
