Being one cour doesn't mean sales expectations should be lower than longer shows. Averages are averages, of course. So length wouldn't matter.


Hmm... The conventional wisdom among Japan fans is that comparing the sales average between a 1-cour and a 2-cour show is not really fair because sales expectation indeed trends downwards throughout the length of a series so the risk is that the sales average would be lower for a 2-cour series. It is one major reason quoted when fans argue that SAO sales average may not beat IS at the end as SAO is 2-cour while IS is 1-cour.

Not really a lot this week but good to see Psycho Pass do good on the Oricon charts

Slow week indeed. Anyone has any idea of how well Sakurasou and Little Busters! will sell?
I'm guessing 2.5-5k for sakurasou. It's barely at 1k estimate atm, but that's likely due to it not releasing until end of Jan.

As for Little Busters, going by current estimates, ranking and taking other retailers into account, I'm guessing 5-7.5k. It could pick up as release gets closer so we'll just have to wait and see.

can anyone tell me if Oda Nobuna No Yabou is doing bad or good? im not good with this sale thing xD


Decently enough. It's not a mega-hit but it's easily selling enough to be making profit.

It gave the source material a bit of a boost too - probably about 25-35k copies over the first 2 months for the earlier volumes and about 20k-30k for the later ones (note: figures very approximate as I don't have any actual sales figures, just ranks).

i see the evengelion movies selling people are getting ready for the third one on blue ray not that i'm one to talk

On a slightly different topic...

It seems like most shows other than Girls und Panzer are starting to tail off this season... nothing else is really getting into the top 50 while GuP is sticking around the #10 mark. Is it really going to be the big seller of the season? I keep on expecting it to fall but it never does..

As expected from Psycho-Pass OP.

Glad to see Mamo-chan here <3 although I wish it would sell better

I'm looking forward to these.


I'm still shocked to see Teekuu so high. Poor MAPPA... they can't sell a show like Kids on the Slope but an anime about 4 cute girls playing Tennis fly off the shelves


Have you been watching a different show to me?

And anyway, Teekyuu was added a lot later than all the other anime (it's been on amazon less than a week). So it's probably just an initial rush. Plus the entire season is in a single volume.

Pretty slow week.

I wouldn't be surprised if we see K ranking in random weeks leading up to the end of the season since there's still 6 eps left.

That would be a somewhat silly thing to get mad about. Anyway, you overcounted Danshi Koukousei and undercounted Acchi Kocchi. They had about the same average sales.

2,446 - Danshi Koukousei
2,224 - Acchi Kocchi

Meaningless difference, statistically speaking. Neither sold well.

I see, thanks for the info.

Nov 20, 2012 7:53 AM by Niyawa

well, K added more than I thought it would. I guess episode 6-7 did touch a few people at least.

volume 2 at 4.6k.

yay!

AO, Horizon and Kuroko on the same week. Kaibutsu-kun chose a bad week to release the 1st volume..


Kaibutsu-kun...for some reason I can't see it being a store front title....its not exactly aimed at otaku or fujoshi. I have a bad feeling that what we're seeing on Stalker is the only sales it'll get. :/
Did you see SukiNayo's estimates? It makes me cry. T^T

Nov 20, 2012 7:35 AM by phoenixalia

K sure is selling. Glad to see Code:Breaker and Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate there.

Nothing much of note this week, with acchi kocchi being the only new thing to rank.

Lots coming out for next week though.
