Too bad GJ-bu and Mondaji didn't make it. They were genuinely decent shows. Especially compared to most series from the top. I guess generic is still the key to sales.

GJ-bu would be dismissed as the epitome of generic by a lot of people, so I'm not sure about throwing stones in glass houses.

And btw I'm importing GJ-bu BDs so no I'm not just some hater. I just think it's unfortunate how words like "generic" are thrown around as put-downs in so many situations that they fail to mean anything anymore.
I wouldn't call it throwing stones. I can agree that setting in GJ-bu was generic, like in most shows, but it's important what you do with it. And for me, GJ-bu turned recently overused high school club setting into something enjoyable and quite refreshing. So no, overall I wouldn't call this show generic.

Oricon Daily April 18 Top 30 DVD/Top 20 BD.

Psycho-Pass v5 at the top on its pre-release day, as expected.

Chu2koi v5 still looks quite strong on BD.

GaruPan v3 still has some small restocking going on. v2 has expectedly dropped off.

Based on the Stalker estimate for Boku no Imouto, again that GaruPan v3 restock must be very very small indeed.

I changed my post a little bit, as I really meant to say that HaMaou looks less like being hit by pranks than the other 3, as far as BD is concerned (quite another story for its DVD though).

Just look at the speed of rise:

Usually such huge jump accompanies an airing of new episode or some announcement of new extra like event tickets. Only HaMaou fits that criterion (an airing of new episode), while the other 3 titles all see big jump sometime in the late afternoon today.

BTW, the prank about HaMaou is how for half a day the ranking of its DVD got above its BD (now it has fallen back below), so the DVD is suspected of being a victim of pranks, and it also happens in late afternoon today:

Those pranks can turn into self fulfilling prophecies as being in the top 100 is like free advertising.

Why would DS2 and Maou-Sama be? They've always been hovering around the top 100. Only one that really seems like a surprise is Majestic Prince.

^ Although quite many think that Date A Live and MJP are both victims of false preorder pranks because of the sudden speed of upward jump in ranking. In fact some suspect Devil Survivor 2 and HaMaou are victims too. Personally I think HaMaou's rise looks authentic as its rise is much more gradual, but it is hard to tell. 2ch is now full of speculations about how many titles are victims of pranks.

12 shows in the top #100 on Amazon from this season. Is that a record?

Slow week overall though.

I'm expecting sub-3k BDs and unranked or ~500 at best DVDs for both.
I don't doubt that would be probably the number for both titles. It is just that this (admittedly preliminary) result might indicate a better result for MaoYuu than Tamako for vol.2 sales. Such result will be intriguing given how Tamako sold quite a bit more than MaoYuu for vol.1

Apr 17, 2013 7:10 AM by symbv

Probably just a slow week, I can't imagine Shinsekai Yori doing better than its usual 600 or so BDs... My copy should arrive today however and I can't wait! Great cover art this volume!
