@jmal, I'm aware that the chart only caters the first volume sales. Can you tell me a link to a more updated version? I get mine from wiki.

Good to see Madoka Magica consistently maintaining that 50k mark BD sales in the first week. Also very strong in the DVD sales. Madoka Magica should be in the rank 3-4 all time in average sales per volume in its time-slot on TV.

So, Kamisama Dolls wasn't counted yet or it flopped so badly that it was simply left out in order not to hurt its few fans like myself? ;)

Sep 28, 2011 12:40 AM by seishi-sama

Kyaaaaa~ Utapri!!!! XD

But I gotta say, even as a huge Utapri fangirl, I still think that Natsume Yuujinchou Sane is much much better. But hey, hormones are hormones I guess. XD

ANIME, IT'S SERIOUS BUSINESS!

and WTF? with Uta no prince ? how these gays selling so well ?


The same reason why Gintama, Natsume, Tiger & Bunny, and Yaoi no Exorcist sell so well.

Fujoshi have money to spend.


this.

Sep 27, 2011 4:17 PM by darknessneko

hopefully Ro-Kyu-Bu will sell, the CDs have all sold well, it's time for the anime to sell just as well.

GINTAMAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

Sep 27, 2011 12:05 PM by WoofSadaharu

There's a lot of variety on this list; that's unusual, since it's always been the same old, same old.

Glad to see a lot of titles up there, like A-Channel, AnoHana, Oreimo, Baka to Test, Gintama, and then the usuals.

IS: Infinite Stratos is still up there...*sigh*

And oh, wow, No.6...hahaha that last episode was priceless. XD

BakaTest isn't doing so hot (even if it probably did about 2k BDs, which we'll find out on Thursday), but Yuru Yuri did very well. Sure you didn't overlook its Blu Ray sales?

DVD: 1,425
BD: 8,367
Total: 9,792 - third highest vol. 1 of Summer so far, could even pass Natsume and take second, and just a very good number no matter how you slice it, especially for a yuri show. Basically, YRYR is one of the biggest hits of the summer season...


Oh that is a relief. I think I just looked at DVDs.

Sep 27, 2011 10:08 AM by GarLogan78

Uta Prince is popular XD

I feel really bad for BakaTest and Yuru Yuri. They did really badly...

I don't know if that's a typo or what, but I fail to see what's particularly homosexual about UtaPri given that it's a male harem otome game adaptation.

It's selling because it's enjoyable, silly fun, has rather good production values and is just all around well-made. And I say this as a guy - I rather liked it. Not enough to import, but if you ask me it's a lot better than many of the female harem shows for which I'm supposed to be the target audience.

Really, I'd think by now people would have gotten over the sales success that certain fujoshi shows enjoy. UtaPri and Natsume (I am importing the latter) are currently the two best selling shows of the season and probably won't be topped (given the oddities of Idolmaster's release and how it will or rather won't be counted accurately). If you ask me variety is a good thing. Not all anime needs to be aimed at guys. These shows are never going to displace my top favorites but a fun show is a fun show.


Sure is logical, rational, well thought out and understanding post around here... are you sure you're in the right forums?


That being said Uta Pri selling more then Natsume is weird if understandable. Natsume is just amazing. (Uta Pri was a fun time though, haters gonna hate)

yay yuru yuri!! :D

Sep 27, 2011 8:41 AM by archiemouse

*7, 10,218 10,218 Toaru Majutsu no Index II vol.8 Limited Edition
good to see that ur dioing fine

Sep 27, 2011 6:50 AM by Mr_Gutts

Dog Days ftw, Airi's song hit the charts as well.

Mayo Chiki in 15th that's a surprise.

Oh nice the marrying couple in Yuru Yuri have their songs in the ranking, right next to each other as well. I can see them fighting over which of their songs are better.

Ikoku Meiro only getting 1700 in sales is a big disappointment, I guess Japan doesn't enjoy their lolis too ladylike.

Sep 27, 2011 6:22 AM by Hoppy

Good to see Madoka, Steins;Gate and Ao no Exorcist on the list!

Sep 27, 2011 6:14 AM by DaisyDuck3008

And madoka magica is still on the list
