Ashame sakurasou is doing so poorly.

Feb 15, 2013 7:33 PM by AnimeHAwk616

Finally Amazon accepts order for Girls und Panzer vol.1 again. This batch is set to be delivered on Feb 11th. Hopefully this won't go out of stock so easily this time round. At the moment it is at #41 in BD sales ranking and #14 in anime BD sales ranking, slightly below Love Live vol.1

Don't blame japan for your titles doing well or bad, buy them yourselves you broke dikfuqs.

True Tears re-released Blu-ray box is doing pretty good.. At least give us a full episode worth of delicious epilogue material, like the drama cd's...

Thanks for this! Do you have the averages for the other seasons?

It seems someone is calculating the average sales for this season. Looks like Jojo and Chuuni are neck to neck while Panzer are so up there, it is clearly the winner for this season.

Sunrise is making money like a boss


What's starting to become noticeable to me is the consistency they are building up in this regard of 10,000 or 20,000 per volume material. It's not just the fact their products do really well lately or get critical acclaim in spite of it like Binbogami and High School Boys, it's the fact that they have multiple shows across multiple genres that are almost all doing quite well by market standards and consistently for a few years now. They're really coming on strong of late, but it's the fact that they are making inlays into the idol/moe crowd where they were never really that huge a force before and making it almost look easy that astonishes me. They've always kind of been known as the sci-fi and mecha studio, but that seems to be about to change.

What a turnaround from a few years ago where they seemed to be known as the "trainwreck" studio that couldn't do a single thing right in the online community. I've always been a strong supporter of the brand since their shows become the first thing to make it onto Canadian TV largely uncut and I strongly support their mission statement of creativity, self-challenge and promoting original content so to see people actually hoping they get certain adaptations and wishing them success is a nice thing to see indeed. Hope they keep doing well but not too well as I don't think one studio overwhelming the competition is necessarily good for creativity and I don't want them to ever grow complacent. The consistency thing is cool but kind of scary at the same time.

Anyway this has been one of the best weeks for the kinds of shows I'm most into for a long time. I think it's easy to see why Spring looks so loaded up with hot-blooded looking action series and mecha shows the way the current decade has been shaping up. I genuinely hope the trend of everyone feeling satisfied and content that they'll always have something new to watch and enjoy on their own personal level continues.

@symbv: This is some really interesting stuff, nicely referenced and argued with numbers, trends and the things fans are saying in Japan both positive and negative as opposed to what looks like pure guess work. I especially like the lack of assumptions being made, not the sort of thing I see on MAL all to often sadly.

HELL YEAH JOJO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hopefully Part 3 will get an anime adaption follow by the rest of the series ^^

And where is my Horizon III!?

Feb 5, 2013 3:13 PM by AnimeForDummies

What fabulous figures for JoJo and they need to hurry up and announce Horizon III.

Eh. So Da Capo III doesn't have a chance to sell ven as much as D.C. II?

DC II sold 3,550 and DC II SS sold 3,654. It's too early to say that DC III couldn't do the same. In any case the DC anime is almost definitely a loss leader for merchandise (since DC II at least) so it may not matter.


Maybe but still. I just hope that there would be SS like in previous parts of franchise cause they definitely won't include the best part of the VN in this season.

Feb 5, 2013 1:01 PM by Nachtwandler_21

Not surprised about number 1.

Feb 5, 2013 12:48 PM by MillaMaxwell

Eh. So Da Capo III doesn't have a chance to sell even as much as D.C. II? My hopes for D.C. II SS are fading (((

Your next line is "now how long until season 2?".

Now how long until season 2? Wait how did you?!

Summer would be the earliest we can expect it. David production is working on Neptunia adaption for spring season. I don't mind waiting since Neptunia looks pretty good with its faptastic character designs.

If you mean amazon stalker, http://www27392u.sakura.ne.jp/index_news.cgi

If you mean the current rankings of any individual volume (including the ones not on stalker), then you can look them up on amazon itself.

Holy shit Love Live is kicking ass! Amnesia is getting up there too.

As someone who has read Jojo's Bizarre Adventure for years but who also enjoys LoveLive!, Little Busters et al I think it is EDIT->POSSIBLE to enjoy all kinds.

I agree. Limiting yourself to only certain genres leads to missing out on shows you might of enjoyed so having a open mind is the best.

Great selling for Jojo, I believe they are deserved, also I really want to see uncensored episodes on blu-ray.
