Glad to see Teekyuu did alright. The seiyuu events on the disc are priceless! Mimori Suzuko's pantomime removal of her pantsu like Kanae, her character on the show was hilarious. They have contests to draw the characters, pose like the characters, etc. very funny.

Amazon.co.jp says GaruPan 2 is in stock right now.

Yeah it restocked both versions some time yesterday. Or maybe more like 36 hours in Japan. But the initial shipments must not have been large for it to not rank for the 28th. If it's ranked high on the 1st then we might see a decent second week.


Still in stock a day and a half later so no big second wave it seems.


Interestingly, GaruPan LE v1 BD may actually be going out of stock on Amazon soon. It says, "Only 5 left in stock." as opposed to "Only 17 left in stock. (More on the way)." which it said for GaruPan LE v2 BD, sometime yesterday.

Now it says for GaruPan LE v2 BD that it, "usually ships within 6~8 business days" for Amazon's price of ¥5,278. Maybe there's a stock shortage again... The resellers with prices close to ¥7,350 are taking precedence now since they can get it delivered within Monday March 4th.

EDIT: Stock from amazon.co.jp has now completely burnt out for v1. Very impressive when it was selling at full price of ¥7,350. I'm just fairly curious how the market will react now...

Will resellers increase their prices in anticipation of a possible sales boost when ep11 and ep12 airs/ Will buyers start targeting the DVD or the RE BD? Will resellers eventually cave in to get rid of excess stock if buyers do end up targeting the DVD or RE BD, as i'm assuming most of them bought at ¥5,393 or so from HMV and earlier from Amazon?

Update on Oricon daily sales ranking.

- Aikatsu DVD started to chart and is #1 anime title on DVD chart for Mar 1st

- OreShura came back to chart for Mar 1st. Apparently the anecdotes about some shortage in stock may not really be pure rumor

Is the first time I comment on the topic of MAL ranking of sales of BD and DVD from Japan, I have to say is well done.
I am happy to see the good sales of the film Mamoru Hosoda. I'm sorry I have not yet found a release in English.

Kinda disappointed that 2nd week for GirlPan hasn't even ranked at all in the daily charts.
Well, it actually ranked in one day, 25th, at #7 and I think this day's sales was not counted in the first week for GirlPan. It is just that I have not included the ranking of the 25th to keep the chart shorter and focus on the new titles released this week. So we may yet still see some number for GirlPan v2 in the sales figure of the coming week.

- Horizon2 looks a bit... weak?
It's the second week so I wouldn't expect it to rank high in daily lists.
Of course! I sorted out the 2nd week titles like KuroBas but I have dropped the ball on this one.

Additional observations

- Hidamari seems to be ok (but perhaps that's about it)

- On the other hand, Accel World looks good

- Blood-C the movie is doing a bit better than I expected

Orico Daily Sales Ranking information for this week so far

Some observations:

- Nobuna is surprisingly strong. It even makes a reasonable show in DVD chart. Would be interested to see how it goes in the coming days.

- Even a title as strong as SAO can only reach 4th in flying-get day and 2nd in the actual day of release.

- Little Busters and ToLoveRu Darkness look so close in performances so far, and both look they are performing well

- On the contrary Magi seems to be selling just around the level of KuroBas in its 2nd week.

- OreShura is the first title of this season going for sale. It does not look it will do very well. Amazon Stalker is pointing at around 2.5k for BD and 1.5k for DVD but probably the actual figure will be less. It is also a bit unusual for such LN adapted anime to sell proportionally that much in DVD compared to BD.

- Horizon2 looks a bit... weak?

- Ookami Kodomo still making good presence in both BD and DVD charts in its 2nd week.

Me too! Doesn't help that I've been anticipating it since watching the PV.

The CD album chart is not usually mentioned here but I thought I'd post that Kana Hanazawa's album claire was #6 on the all CD album chart this week which includes mainstream stuff like One Direction so this is great! Includes several anime songs including happy endings and Silent Snow.

I love how she snuck a "suki desu" into Just The Way You Are. It isn't in the lyrics insert but we anime fans love you too, Kana :)

Girls und Panzer... overrated as hell. Don't know how many situations where they should've died from almost anything. Cannon shots, falling off a bridge, getting burnt, anything, really.

Youjust described every single sports anime ever. In fact, almost all figthing/sports/adventure anime have characters that should have died many many times.

Plus, they have tank battles in school, the school/city is on a battle ship, they fire live ammo for fun. While the tanks are realistically depicted, everything else isn't. It seems to me that people don't think that tankwando is all that dangerous, in that world. Apparently, people don't die from it. How is that any different then real life martial arts?

I know! Hakuoki is my favorite otoge anime so far. Maybe they thought HnK would sell just on its name alone?


Whatever it was, it didn't work. But then even if they did think that HnK would sell on it's name alone, surely they saw what happened with the sales(you know, the first season's sales..) and they should have animated Amnesia better?
If they butcher Brothers Conflict, I'll be really disappointed.
Hakuouki's my fave otoge anime too btw. =D

HnK certainly did a nosedive in sales. Guess fans of the game in Japan didn't like it either.


The first season sold horribly too. I neither like nor dislike this news. What I mean to say is, as much as I want otoge anime to sell, I'd also prefer if Otomate would make an anime of their otoge PROPERLY. It's almost like they WANT the anime adaptations to fail.

Even if has to be low budget, I don't mind. As long as it's watchable. KamiMashita was much better than Arcana, HnK and Amnesia put together. But it had simple animation. The budget was low for that show, but they used their budget well.
Otomate did a good job with Hakuouki so I don't understand what went wrong after that.

You've got be kidding me...
That's too low.
Actually it looks a bit puzzling. Hosoda's previous work SUMMER WAR had half the box office of Ookami Kodomo yet in terms of first week sales it sold double what Ookami Kodomo sold. Still trying to understand why this is the case...
