Its always possible it might reach the thresholds in mid January when the new Amazon shipments come in too, since I doubt many BDs will be selling then. Maybe even in February.

Wasn't the initial January date pushed back to February, or is the January 31/February date a third wave of shipments? Depends when exactly in the month it restocks I guess, and when other stores expect to restock. If it's all staggered in bits and pieces it could be harder to get a clear picture.

We do have the mid-year rankings as a possibility too, but the thresholds are very high. Still, with Vol. 2, 3 at worst, we should have good distro and a clear sense of how the show is really selling. Vol. 1 does have the event ticket application but Vols. 2-6 have been ranking highly so consistently that I doubt we'll see any drop in sales.

If this article covers the same thing, 2012 ended on 9th December, so it would all be counted in 2013 sales.

Oh right of course it'll be for 2013, I even posted some 2012 yearly data elsewhere already so it can't have included this week. That's very good timing for GirlPan then, assuming it can sell enough to make the Top 100 or whatever Oricon eventually publishes for BD. All we have so far is a Top 50.

Got my copy! Girls Und Panzer 1 Blu Ray! OMG, the opening action sequence of the first episode looks sooooo good in Blu Ray, the pans are just perfect. So gorgeous! And the box is great, now just begging to be filled with the remaining volumes, all pre ordered of course. And the extras are great, such fun. Almost seemed a shame to tear the plastic off but I of course did so right away.

The Water War OVA is a ton of fun. There are also audio drama character introductions for the five main characters. They use the stereo separation really well to match the pictured characters along with the main ones. Will need to listen to the .5 episodes to check if that is where they got the introduction dialogue from, probably...

Guessing Btooom isnt selling that well. Sighs I really wanted a second season.


Did you buy a copy yourself? Buy the manga? I did... though not enough others did, for the BDs at least... too bad as you say. Hard to expect them to keep making the show if it doesn't sell. I would love a second season but it isn't looking likely unless volume 10 of the manga sells like hotcakes next month and they decide that the show bumping the manga sales is enough of a reason to continue. Doubtful...


BTOOOM! by hpulley, on Flickr

BTOOOM! Blu Ray 2nd disc is on its way. I would have it already if I'd included it with Girls Und Panzer 1 (see below) but stupidly I put it in another order that doesn't ship until Friday, hopefully here Moday if I'm lucky... Wednesday if I'm not.

Daily rankings are up on 2ch. Looks like GnP didn't live up to the sold-out hype after all.

Heh, it's dropped precisely because it's sold out. It'll still be the best seller of Fall easily, we just might not know its true potential until Vol. 2.

Stock issues will not be fixed by tomorrow. In fact the issue may not be fixed until February. It's possible we'll never know the full sales for vol. 1 unless it ranks in the 2013 yearly ranking. I'm not sure if this week will be counted as the last week of the 2012 ranking or the first week of the 2013. The cutoff is somewhere in late December each year.

It seems to be selling under 1,000 copies.

^ It should be up by tomorrow. Underproduction should be solved by now.


Yeah, no. It was sold out everywhere day 1 and Amazon isn't even getting in new copies until February. They just had no idea the kind of sales it would have when they were originally producing the discs.

Plus, I'm still pretty confident it'll move at least 10k first week, regardless of whatever numbers those are. The fact its outdoing Psycho Pass and nearly outdoing To Love Ru Darkness even without Amazon and no BDs in stores outside of the Tokyo area for the daily rankings just goes to show how much of a monster it is.

Garupan completely ran out of stock on day 1, I'm surprised it's even on Oricon anymore.

New additions: here
Full weekly list: here

Full list is up.

Only new info is a second week for Tari Tari Vol. 4 on BD.

More information in the monthly rankings. I think I already recapped some of the information in an earlier post in this thread, but we have some additional data for Saki Achiga-hen and Eureka AO now.

They've restocked major stores with GirlPan BDs, which is good news... but Amazon orders have been pushed back to February if you order now. We might not even get the full numbers in the months report.

^ If you're talking about the autumn season GnP definitely is the AOTS. No doubt about that. But if we are talking numbers it is neck to neck with Kuroko fandisc. I don't even want to talk about the underproduction haha that was just too awesome. Even SAO can't do that.

Dec 22, 2012 4:00 AM by bippo

True, but this is the ranking for Garupan's release day. The time it rated 6th was the ranking for the day before hand.

Not to mention that the strength of its sales in brick and mortar sales is so strong that it's more or less sold out everywhere in Akiba (though that could well be a case of underproduction on Bandai's part).

However, call me optimistic but with these numbers I don't see anything else touching it this week. And even if the sales this week aren't world beating, once the production gets going I don't think there'll be any question about the most successful show this season.

Dec 22, 2012 3:54 AM by Amarrez

^ But so was Horizon yesterday. Cowboy Bepop BOX is still consistent at #2 today. And that Kuroko fandisc is still topping the DVD charts. Tough to say who will win this week. GnP fans are just celebrating loudly. Kuroko fujoshi are just calm as ever. Although GnP's competitors are on different seasons and categories.

Girls und Panzer is now at the top of Oricon. It was 6th yesterday.

In other news, GnP has been crushing down everything but the boybands in video rankings. I guess anime of the season can be safely handed to them now?


in terms of sales maybe.


And quality, as well.
