Not be all end all, but preorders are very important, especially for anime in Japan. And sales in the first week make up a very significant chunk of overall sales (usually between 70% and 90% of what is reported by Oricon, lifetime, often over 80%).


The numbers being discuss, even if not part of my quote chain, were BK sales and Nisemono's presales, which brought up the conclusion that Nise is a bit of a drop off from BK. As important as presales may be to stalkers, they aren't conclusive sales figures.

I don't know a lot about Stalker points are and honestly couldn't care less about forecasting statistics that don't represent money I am personally responsible for. The comparison and conclusions just looked apples to oranges.

Highschool DxD was actually decent, hope they do a second season if sales keep going strong, the potential is there.


Yeah, there will be some hate because of the fan service but it was a good show, hope it gets a second season.

It's sad to see Inu X Boku ahead of Natsume (truly undeserving), but Natsume is still selling well, which is great. Need more seasons!!!!

Brave 10 sales don't look that good so far, we'll see if it makes it to a second season. Not that I particularly care, but seeing as the second half of the first season was more entertaining then the first one I'd check it out in the hope that it keeps improving.

lol @ Kill Me Baby xD


Shit sucks so its not surprising. Now if it were shorter it probably would have sold a bit more, but not by much I say around 1,000~2,000 copies.

Still hoping for the anime to come back or they will make an announcement soon.


Same thing.


The manga is still very popular and the DVD sales are quite good so it will come back cause some of the stuff that happens in the last two arcs I want to see animated. Plus I want Shimon character songs please. Enma's voice. <3

BTW. NMG preorders allready about 54K. I'm shoked. Taught they would be high but not so high.


Didn't Bakem sell like 80k? Selling 60-70k is about what I expected for Nise.. a little bit of a drop off.


Jeez fellas try to leave a little room for folks to just buy it upon release instead of acting as if the presales are the end all be all.

Maybe Thomas Gray did have it right.

Still it's a sequel and it's not so good as NMG so I hoped for 30-40


I'd say its better than Bakem, because it has more elements of what I enjoy in anime: fanservice and lolis. The lack of screen time for some characters like Senjouhara might bother some but I vastly prefer getting Shinobu and Karen that screen time instead.

This Year's Precure is more of a family show than a kids show due to the humor used in it. I can see the next movie selling well in the box office.


It had opening a bit weaker than Eiga Suîto Purikyua but still good
well I can't complain - more money they earn, more they can put into making new series
and one day maybe fairy will be voiced by Emperor Wakamoto (kind of my dream btw) ;)
