Little Busters looking much stronger than To Love Ru this time around. Hopefully it can keep this up and take an overall lead sometime soon.

Mar 31, 2013 8:39 AM by RyanSaotome

Oricon Top 30 DVD/Top 20 BD Daily Ranking for Mar 30.

Hanagai NEXT continues to rank under Little Busters! but quite close to To Love-Ru Darkness. Probably 7~8k 1st week on BD.

ViviPan is probably in the range of 6~7k 1st week BD, being also around To Love-Ru Darkness, but ranking much lower on pre-release day than Hanagai did.

SAO already wrestles the Top ranking off JoJo. JoJo will probably be around 11~12k 1st week on BD.

Magi has now ranked again on DVD which improves its likelihood of not dropping significantly from the v3 1st week. It has not ranked at all on BD so it may have dropped or the thresholds may be too high this week.

AKB0048, Senran Kagura, Cuticle Tantei Inaba and Sasami-san@Ganbaranai have yet to appear in the rankings... which doesn't bode well for them.

but there aren't any new releases on Mar 30/31, so it could squeeze in another day. That's if OreShura v2 sells close to its v1 4k 1st week sales (hopefully).
If I am to take a guess, I would say v2 will sell 3k at maximum, probably less. But who knows? It may be just another title that is massively off from the Stalker projection.

Mondaiji is a Mar 29 release. It would have been expected to rank on release day, had it sold really strongly... yet OreShura was the one which ranked 2 days after its release. Yes, I question if OreShura could rank again on Mar 30/31... but there aren't any new releases on Mar 30/31, so it could squeeze in another day. That's if OreShura v2 sells close to its v1 4k 1st week sales (hopefully).

Mar 30, 2013 3:58 AM by Ejc

^ Additional observations:

- ViviPan is still under Hanganai. On the other hand, Dog Days' finally edges ahead of both ToLoveRu Darkness and Haganai.

- Hidamari rises A LOT yesterday.

- Mondaiji disappears after just one day. I wonder how long OreShura will last...

Mar 30, 2013 3:50 AM by symbv

Oricon Top 30 DVD/Top 20 BD Daily Ranking for Mar 29.

Magi appears back on DVD, 2 days after release.

OreShura v2 has finally appeared, 2 days after release. I assume OreShura could have sold 2.5k+ (lower limit) since it has ranked at least once, with Magi's zero on BD. That's if Magi hasn't dropped much further in v4 compared to v3.

GaruPan v2 disappears, which makes it all the likely that the HMV sales from Mar 27 ~1PM/Mar 28 ~1PM (orders after 1PM are delivered the next day/before 1PM on the same day) had some influence combined with some of the sales from Amazon.

- GirlPan v2 (NOT v3) comes out of nowhere


GirlPan v2 now sold out at Amazon. Was 3 in stock a little while ago, now only used from ¥ 7,350

GirlPan v1 is still sold out, used only from ¥ 13,980

GirlPan v3 usually ships in 5-6 days.

Crazy! I love the show, just love it and have all 3 discs so far but wow...


GaruPan v2 was out of stock sometime on Mar 27. Those 3 in stock may have been residue stock or just from a reseller. Well we now know it is almost in the state that v1 is in. 14k minimum vs 9,380 minimum for new. It also went out on stock in the afternoon of Mar 28 on HMV... so maybe that may have contributed to allowing GaruPan v2 to rank at #20 on Mar 28.

v3's days are numbered as it is out of stock at HMV too on the same day v2 went out of stock there.

Hyouka and JoJo appears in today's list (for sales yesterday). Both look strong, particularly JoJo.
Also:
- Mondaiji also appears. #9 looks not bad.
- Magi disappears already!
- GirlPan v2 (NOT v3) comes out of nowhere

Chu2byo being 'almost original' doesn't really have any significance. Look at K-ON and see how much its atmosphere changed compared to original manga. The basis, concept and characters are still not their own.
Compared to K-On, Chu2byo is much looser in adaptation. The whole drama part was made up in the anime. Two out of 4 main characters were original in anime. The personality and background of Mori Summer and Isshiki are vastly different. Calling it "not having any significance" is a gross underestimation of the original contents put in the anime.

Kitchiri said:
Also even though Tamako looks like a failure, how much of a "no surprise" there is is still an open question -- if Tamako indeed sold only 6xx copies, then it is still a big surprise given the fame of the studio and the fact that there is no obvious technical quality issue or controversy surrounding the anime. So the size of failure can still spring surprise, and we are interested to see how it will go.
Nichijou.
Selling like Nichijou and selling just 6xx copies are surprises on a completely different level -- that is my point.

For all the years of KyoAni's existence, it did just one original TV series before Tamako which was SoraAge (if we count OVA as well, we have Munto) so the sample size is small. Besides, Chu2byo is almost like an original because it changes almost everything from the original LN besides the names and a few of the basic settings (and then the original LN is so obscure that there is no LN fan base to speak of).
Chu2byo being 'almost original' doesn't really have any significance. Look at K-ON and see how much its atmosphere changed compared to original manga. The basis, concept and characters are still not their own. What I'm seeing in Tamako market is failing to establish main concept, showing their inability to produce good original series.

Also even though Tamako looks like a failure, how much of a "no surprise" there is is still an open question -- if Tamako indeed sold only 6xx copies, then it is still a big surprise given the fame of the studio and the fact that there is no obvious technical quality issue or controversy surrounding the anime. So the size of failure can still spring surprise, and we are interested to see how it will go.
Nichijou.

and I don't look at amazon stalker any more so yeah. I just thought that it is no selling material.

I love how there's only 28 entries on this list, but Tamako Market gets 29th anyways, just about the cut line.

Let this be you another lesson KyoAni. Don't do originals, because you suck at it, while you do make the best adaptions.

The earliest I've ever seen the full lists is about 9:15AM EST, or 10:15AM JST (well depending on daylight savings here in the US). The past few weeks it had been more than a day later, but I guess the person posting it was on top of things today. I think it's all a matter of whether they post it before going to sleep or not.
Yeah, as established and reputable Oricon is, they can get quite sloppy when it comes updating the full week's list on time - amazing particularly since Japan is supposed to be quite serious about punctuality.

*1,942 *1 Zettai Karen Children: The Unlimited - Hyoubu Kyousuke [DVD+BD]: 2013/03/20

This sold 4,281 with BDs. I wonder how much it'll drop after the event ticket. Doesn't look too good on Stalker for v2+.
Thanks for spotting the error. I have corrected it. I remember thinking how The Unlimited seemed that it would sell around equal number of BDs and DVDs according to the Stalker, but I forgot all this by the time I compiled the vol.1 ranking...

New additions: here
Full weekly list: here
Not sure if symbv was planning to do this as well, but the full list is up.
So this week's full list is earlier than usual, coming up even before Japan turned Friday, and I am sure it has nothing to do with Easter (as there is no holiday for Easter there). Interesting. Anyway, I guess I would just put up the Preliminary Vol.1 Sales Ranking List. Anybody who is interested to see the full lists can check the links quote above (thanks to jmal).

That aside, there is seriously no show this winter that can at least match with LoveLive from the looks of it. Vividred perhaps?
I can venture out to assert that there is almost zero chance that any show this season can beat Love Live. It is that far ahead in the sales race. By the current trend, and assuming its last episode is a well-received one (the last episode aired has absolutely stopped the momentum of its rise in sales ranking for all the BD volumes), the final count can even see it outselling its nearest rival by factor of 3 to 1. It is this overwhelming.

Anyway, the Vol.1 ranking for 2013 Winter season:


2013 Winter Preliminary First Volume Sales

Key: Total - # Weeks Charted - Title - Format - Release Date
18,429 *1 Love Live! [DVD+BD]: 2013/03/22

*4,137 *1 Tamako Market [DVD+BD]: 2013/03/20

Wait, how the heck is Love Live selling with Idolm@ster numbers (counting the game sales with vols containing G4U)? it's good news but I'm shocked it could sell that well

I guess it helps that nobody is buying anything else released this season... it seems to be the only show that caught on in any real way. The whole μ's idol group also seems to have gone over rather well, which set the stage before the anime aired.

As for iDOLM@STER, that averaged 25k. I think Love Live could get close to that with v1, but it's not yet clear how v2+ will do.


This season must have been dismal compared to other seasons, now I wonder how Vividred will fare.
