Railgun and Yamato on par with Madoka and Eva on Amazon. SnK, OreImo, Gargantia dropping like flies. Neko and GundamUC STILL in the top 10 on Oricon....LoveLive1 reappearing at the top20. Usual preorders are back and slow weeeek for Anime.


SnK and Gargantia dropping? Why? Oreimo2 I sort of get, so far not living up to season 1 IMO but Gargantia and SnK just have 2 episodes out and I thought they'd been well received.

Railgun is like Monogatari franchise I guess, just can't go wrong! Printing money...


All 3 are doing the normal "Drop" after solicitation... its tough to stay as high as they got up to the whole time. SnK and Oreimo are still about #30 and Gargantia is about #50.

GJ-bu got quite popular.
Well, it is a nice comedy, I loved it.

I think UtaPari is pretty much dug in and entrenched in Animate, and it is not even solicited in Amazon yet.

RailgunS finally makes its appearance on Amazon around 6hrs ago. It has really been making a serious move on Amazon, even with strong "recently" added anime BD/DVD (such as Railgun/Index BD-Boxes, Yamato 2199 v6+7 BD/DVD, Porco Rosso BD, etc).

RailgunS also has all volumes within the Top 10 on HMV, with the Evangelion 3.33 BD & DVD stopping it from rising further right now. I wonder if it can make a move into the Animate Top 10 with UtaPri there? Probably not, I guess... Gamers/softmap Top 10 are a mixed bag of anime right now.

Key: Volume number / 10:35 rank / +1hr / +2hrs / +3hrs / +4hrs / Now

v1: 17→17→17→14→11→10
v2: 26→25→22→18→17→17
v3: 30→26→23→19→18→18
v4: 32→28→25→21→21→19
v5: 31→27→24→20→20→20
v6: 34→30→27→23→23→23
v7: 33→29→26→22→22→22
v8: 35→31→28→24→24→21

SHAFT is rolling in the money :) I hope they will make more good animes besides monogatari series. I haven't watched but I heard Sasami was shit.

wow.. amnesia sold well..xD


This is what surprises me the most....


Yeah, it had an event ticket boost, but also the game was one of the most popular during the time it was released XD


Honestly, the anime was quite boring but the art style was good..

Maybe the game is better than the anime..

It's not really surprising when v1 and v2 have event ticket applications that provided a massive boost. Just look at the points on Stalker...

Volume / DVD projection / BD projection / Days to release
v1: 2,022 *,941 ***
v2: 1,926 *,945 *11
v3: *,875 *,638 *46
v4: *,918 *,659 *74
v5: 1,090 *,730 109
v6: *,756 *,517 137

Amnesia will most likely drop in sales by around 40~50% by v3. There's no guarantee that the v3~v6 DVDs will even get 2nd weeks like v1 unless the 2nd week is a super dead week (v1 DVD had a 506 2nd week with 451 threshold). I see it settling near the Manabi line with its final average.

Top 100 April Monthly Ranking for Spring 2013 anime on Amazon.

Shingeki has passed OreImo now in preorders. It is very close right now as the accumulated points on Stalker should be 2074 for Shingeki vs 2180 for OreImo when you exclude the penalty points for Nico Nico preorders. I guess OreImo may be a bit overestimated right now or Shingeki is a bit underestimated with the points disparity.

Key: Apr 12 rank / Yesterday's rank / Amazon JP Hourly rank (11:22 update) / Title

*16 *21 *11 Shingeki no Kyojin 1
*18 *18 *30 OreImo 1
*33 *36 *32 Suisei no Gargantia BD-Box 1

Kamiya (seiyuu album) - 4, 3
Idol@Master special - 7, 10
Taketatsu Ayana (seiyuu album) - 8, 6
Yakushimaru Etsuko - 9, 13
LoveLive OST - 10, 7
Kurosaki Maon - 14, 19
Nyaruko cover album - 19, 24
TariTari drama cd - 21, 37
KamiNomi & Hayate character song album - 25, 22

So it's almost on par with Idolm@aster special :) I wonder what that special is about?

@symbv, jmal, do you know why is Mondaiji selling so poorly? 2ch didn't like it enough? I thought it was one of better Winter shows.
Hmm... Mondaiji did not make that big wave for active 2ch-ers but it seems to be good enough to the more casual watchers who proceeded to buy the LN in droves after watching the show (Mondaiji is the LN which got the biggest anime boost effect the last season). One problem is the all-powerful male character and the trend in Japan is such character turns off people even more than thick male character in harem anime. Also fans of the original LN are not too happy with some of the character designs, thinking they look a bit different from what they imagined by reading the LN. They particularly found issue with the voice and design of Kurousagi. Also the anime, particularly ep.1, had changes from the LN that fans of the LN do not necessarily agree. That said, I am still puzzled a bit over why it sold so poorly because in terms of animation, storytelling and moe level (look at Kurousagi, the vampire and pest, and the ED) I think the anime staff have got it right. Perhaps as you said, there are people who like it but do not love it enough to buy the BDs.

^^^ Thanks again! If I were better at findings things on Oricon I'd do it myself...

Chihayafuru 2 OST I don't remember seeing but maybe these things don't normally rank. I was interested in the Sasami-san OST because Yukali Hashimoto made it.

Interesting, I wonder about that too. Love Live sound track is excellent as well. I think it will sell very well.
