Damn I thought Eureka Seven would be selling more, but Gundam Seed HD is doing better than I thought it would.

Jun 26, 2012 10:16 PM by Jugem-Jugem

Feel So Moon as top Single CD?

I am proud.

Jun 26, 2012 3:58 PM by morshuwarrior

awesome Haiyore! Nyaruko-san did pretty good and Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn vol.5 still selling pretty well.

Jun 26, 2012 3:07 PM by Ahmer

glad to see SpaceBros single selling well.. also Acchi Kocchi and AO BD+DVD are doing good, i think..

Jun 26, 2012 2:42 PM by underoath777

Its current DVD score is 1,350 and Nyaruko's is 1,810; we know Nyaruko was overshot about 30%, so the same would put Natsu-iro around ~1k DVDs, since it has a few days to go. Better than some other male otaku shows but if that's, say, ~20% of the total sales then BDs would be about ~3.5-4k for not quite 5k total. Dunno, we'll see in a week.

I don't know, I'm even asking myself if it will break the 3k barrier combined. Taking in consideration Amazon Stalker at least. As you say, I guess we'll see next week.

Hyouka should be fine as long as it doesn't bomb (like, 4k or less), because it's already a success. I say that because the novels have seen an absolutely enormous increase in sales since the anime was announced. The first volume was under 70k before the anime got it into the rankings again (and surely a chunk of that 70k came from the moment an adaptation was announced), and is now going to be in excess of 200k when this week's figures are posted.

But how much of this generated revenue actually goes to the Committee of Hyoka and how much does Kadokawa Shoten keeps, that's a good question. I know it's beneficial for the franchise as a whole, but was it beneficial for all the parts involved.

I hope Mysterioux Girlfriend X, Duskmaiden of Amnesia, and Sankarea sell atleast 5k+ per vol with their mangas getting boosts in sales as well.

All very good shows (especially the first two), but none will crack 3k at current estimates. Sankarea is doing particularly awfully despite this being its release week. Ranked #510 only two to three days before release? That's the definition of screwed. At least Nazo and Tasogare have snagged a place in the top 100 this week, even if it's too little too late.

I guess Nazo has a small chance to break 3k, but I wouldn't hold my breath, unless DVDs rank somehow for like ~500 copies. The ranking threshold will probably be higher than that though.

I wonder how Hyouka will sell. It's KyoAni which usually attracts sales, but hopefully it wont end up like Nichijou.

It's definitely doing a lot better than Nichijou ever did. It has had the highest average rank on Amazon throughout the preorder period of any show this season. (55th; Nyaruko averaged 62nd). But I think it'll end up selling about 7k first week, since it hasn't spent a much time ranked very highly (~top 25 or so) like Nyaruko has.
That's pretty worrying indeed.

Even if the BD/DVDs don't sell well for those three, hopefully their respective mangas will get a nice boost to justify a second season.

As for Hyouka, it's good to hear it's doing decent. Though I doubt KyoAni is worried too much since they have cashcow franchises they could fall back on if they ever need it. They're one of the studios with a lot of flexibility in regards to what shows they do. Just an announcement on a new season for FMP, Haruhi, K-ON, or Lucky Star would shake the industry lol.

You say not even Hyouka would cross ~10k? Man.....I fear for Kuroko now.

EDIT: But Kuroko hasn't been that high or that low...both BD and DVD have averaged a good spot right?

Accel World's ranking fell too...I think it was in the top 100 but now in the top 200?

The only thing I'm pleased about is that the Space Brothers and Kuroko no Basket sales on their songs are doing great :D

ouch Eureka sales, ouch ;p

Nyaruko was pretty much all NicoNico hype

Jun 26, 2012 9:55 AM by ruggia

Glad to see "Feel so moon" on one of the single CD list.

Jun 26, 2012 9:19 AM by CapnDavid

Hmm was expecting Nyaruko to sell more. Bit worrying.

I hope Mysterioux Girlfriend X, Duskmaiden of Amnesia, and Sankarea sell atleast 5k+ per vol with their mangas getting boosts in sales as well. Especially Mysterious Girlfriend X. Totally underrated show this season imo..

I wonder how Hyouka will sell. It's KyoAni which usually attracts sales, but hopefully it wont end up like Nichijou.

So far, Spring season is a little lackluster in terms of sales. Which is a bit of a shame, seeing as how is has a lot of (apparently) underrated shows.

This does not bode well for the shows still to be released (Nazo no Kanajo X, Sankarea, Dusk Maiden, etc.)

I bet it wouldn't take long to find a poll that lists some 20k+ sellers as the most disappointing show ever.


http://anime.biglobe.ne.jp/userranking/title/16222/

Worst anime ever poll.

1. K-On
2. Angel Beats

...Yeah, Biglobe means shit for sales.
