They get quite enough from movie screenings. Not great but not bad either and BTW it was already licensed in Ruissia and some other countries


Given the small number of screens it was played on you have to wonder what are the financial expectations place on Berserk. Just looking at what it did at the box office and it's home video sales can't be enough to speculate on it's performance, sure you can compare what it did to other movies but that's apples to oranges if you're doing so to guess what is considered a success.

Temporal Blu-ray + DVD Sales Rankings for Spring 2012 (the first volumes)
*1, 3,302 Sengoku Collection
*2, 3,192 Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? of the Dead
*3, 2,248 Acchi Kocchi



I know it wasn't nothing special but Acchi Kocchi could have at least hit the 3k mark...Hoping for the incoming volumes to sell around 2k at least, it will be sad to drop at 1k ;-;

And this week of the month is always slow. There's only really one heavy week most months, because that's when most releases come out (near the end of the month). It's always like this. Next week should be fairly large though, with Saki Achiga-hen, Nyaruko-san, Eureka Seven AO, Zetman, and Hiiro no Kakera starting, though only the first three will sell much. The week after that however will be huge, with 9 more first volumes plus most of the volumes of ongoing shows.

I have always found it amusing that most of the TV Anime releases are at the end of the month, I would love to hear the opinion from an Anime producer on the topic. Also we won't see the final picture for the spring Anime until late July, because of the Blu-Ray/DVDs of Accel World and Sakamichi no Apollon estimated "strong" July sales. I wonder if any other spring anime will break the 10,000 combined cumulative Blu-Ray/DVD sales, besides Nyaruko and Hyouka.

Sencolle reached the 3000, good job ^^

Even in a bad sales week, Unicorn sells like crazy.

nyaruko? definitely. its impossible that it will not sell bigtime. a lucky star follower cannot ignore the comic gold parodies inside the anime.

Spring 2012 anime are good, it's really a slow week.

Berserk could do much better, I hope international releases help to increase the numbers.

Jun 19, 2012 4:32 AM by kratos_aurion

Good to see gundam unicorn on top and nisemonogatari on list

Fairly low sales week- I guess the spring anime that is out just isn't appealing much to Japan at the moment.
