I kind of wonder what the sudden reappearance of Madoka in the Anime BD sales ranking in Amazon JP the last week or so means.... Does it mean it failed to sell enough to be in BD top 100 even though the top one made into no.16 best selling of titles currently available in Amazon?

Top 16 in which category?

As I said, "anime BD titles currently available in Amazon JP". Not any stalker chart or sales ranking you find in Amazon, but I look at the Anime BD ranking and take out only the anime titles that you can buy right now (which means it should have sales tabulated by Oricon as it is real sales not advanced sales).

In the recent movie-inspired bump (which peaked from the 15th to the 18th), none of the six volumes ever went above 150th place in the all-DVD/BD ranking.

Guess that's why. Did not make it to top 100 among all BD/DVD that are available for sales.

If they sold enough to rank, it'll be in the next weekly list most likely, 10/15~10/21. I guess it's possible, as there's not all that much coming out this week. But it would be a stretch. The BD 50 threshold is likely to be at least 500, or as high as 700-800.

Last 30 days, max rank 300th:
Vol. 1
Vol. 2
Vol. 3
Vol. 4
Vol. 5
Vol. 6

Links may or may not work, Stalker can be picky about linking to specific searches.

Nobuna breaking 5000 mark in an unambiguous way is significant because Nobuna detractors like to mock the anime failing to break 5000 even though it has event tickets and with such a superior level of sakuga animation.

From what I'm reading on 2ch, the full weekly list this week added nothing beyond what was reported on Tuesday. Not surprising given how low thresholds were on Tuesday already.

But monthly rankings are out:

Yuru Yuri♪♪ Vol. 1 is up to 8,461 (weeks 1-2)
Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita Vol. 1 is up to 5,700. (weeks 1-2)
Oda Nobuna no Yabou Vol. 1 is up to 5,476. (weeks 1-4)

Plus a few others.

Nice to see YRYR and Jintai getting an update, and there's some hope we might get third week data for them if the other monthly ranking gets posted (there are two, that tend to cover slightly different periods), and if they stayed in the BD top 100.

if story/material to be animated was what matter to decide whether the show will get second season or not, we'd already get Spice and Wolf season 3 ageeeeees ago

I don't think Kurimu-chan was implying source material availability is the only thing that matters. Obviously sales are needed too. It's just taken as a given that KuroBas has more than enough sales to warrant a sequel (or three).

S&W II, unfortunately, didn't sell enough to warrant a sequel. Sales just dropped too much from season one. And with the novels over, it's never going to happen now. Sadly.


yes I'm aware that S&W II was not doing really well in term of sales. not to mention Brain Base rarely (or even never?) make a sequel for series other than natsume, basically I gave up of all hope for S&W III long time ago...although yes I'll be more than happy if suddenly there is announcement about it

his post was biased towards material availability to be adapted into anime (as he stated 2 more enemies, top seiyuu, teaser) hence I gave an example (S&W & S&W II in this case) which had enough (finished) material to guarantee 2-3 more season of anime adaptation but no news so far, it's just an example and it can be any "no sequel anime adaptation that has enough material to be animated"

and yes that's what I was trying to imply, sales, rating and "other factors" are also important not just "the story is not finished so it will be weird if we don't get a sequel"

I guess I'll catch up with Shirokuma Cafe after Chuuni ends, I need weekly dose of fabulous Jun-kun.

There's also Ixion Saga DT. It's, uhhh, not a particularly impressive show by any means, but he gets to play an, er, interesting role. I'm totally watching it just for him and Mikami Shiori (A~kari~n!).
Speaking of Mikami Shiori, wasn't she in btooom as well in the recent ep? She played as one of Himiko's friends in her flashbacks. I could swear it was her. MAL needs to update the casts!

Actually I find Ixion Saga DT to be truly impressive - by beating expectation by a long league and being extremely funny (even more so if you know Japanese). I can only say I am very impressed by the broadmindedness of Capcom in allowing this anime (which has 2 cours) to be a promotion anime for its online game (which is also called Ixion Saga).

And Akarin was really good -- I could not tell it is her until I pay close attention (and then double-check the cast credit)

The staff of Horizon said its take them 2,5 year to produce both cour, and they gonna working for another project for now.

Just food for thought.

Oct 16, 2012 9:26 AM by fertygo

Most likely in 2013, with 20k sales of vol1.

Oct 16, 2012 9:07 AM by Progeusz

Yeah. Really slow week.

Horizon 3 f***g where?!

This. Its pretty much guaranteed, it may end up a Bakuman type of thing where theres a new 25 Episode series announced each year.
That's also my guess, and its not make any sense for weekly magz like them announce something that gonna out like 9 month from now. IIRC Bakuman doing the same thing.

Be patient folks.
