And it's worse when you have to use a proxy if you want to shop in Animate, anime is an expensive hobby...

UtaPri already sold 63k.

I don't know if I could do this if I am not on japan though. Whoever invented the yen should be a hero here.

With the USD back near 100 JPY it's not nearly so bad as it was just 6-12 months ago, but yeah we still get hit by S&H... of course we don't pay JP sales tax so that saves 5%, offsetting some of the S&H cost.

Of course I don't have to deal with customs charges... that's killer for some countries.

Had this problem with the geass series before, the solution is just order them as it goes on sale if funds are your main concern. Same with me buying railgunS now. I don't know if I could do this if I am not on japan though. Whoever invented the yen should be a hero here.

Animate is allowing the pre-ordering of the whole series of Monogatari 2nd season, and it shows there are 12 volumes altogether (as I guessed). The final volume will come only in Sep 2014... Now the question is: How many episodes are there in those 12 volumes?

Looks like 5 for Neko White. Could it be 5 per arc, 3 on 上 2 on 下 discs? 30 episodes total?

12 vols? Dear god that's well over $1000 in BDs, that's Im@s tier.
I know it is expensive but... I must have them! I have preordered Neko White 1-2 from amazon already.

Finally both Love Live #1 and #2 together LOL


Between the consistent resurgence of Love Live, Gundam Breaker posting 200,000 copies in 4 days and the new Final Gintama movie (which people are raving about) topping all films opening over the weekend with 281 Million Yen it's been a good finish to the week for Sunrise/Bandai after some pretty lackluster (by comparison to the usual standard for their mecha series) sales for Valvrave. Then again those discs are handled by Aniplex and not Bandai so I guess it makes little difference either way as Bandai is looking to the model kits like VVV-1 which seem to be performing well and are apparently sold out at at a lot of places and not the discs.

I legitimately thought things were finally slowing down for that duo this season and this was Monogatari's time alone but that's clearly not the case entirely. I guess if they won't find a way to top one chart at any given time they'll just focus on another be it video games or box office. That's the power of horizontal and vertical integration which few companies in the anime scene can boast.

Finally! I'm really impressed with the especially long tail that Love Live! has. If only Bandai Visual had kept GaruPan (v1/v2) well stocked, then we could've possibly seen this happen too for it.

I reckon Love Live! 1's total will probably pass GaruPan 1's (not including the Standard Edition sales) this week, lol.

Just bought some non-anime related stuff from amazon and looked at the yearly dvd chart and SnK vol1 was at 14th place?! Right beside that one edition of EVA3.33?!?!
Could vol1 hit 80k or something?? But as those other volumes are way down low, these could mean it might average 40-45k at the end. Anybody reminds this of NANA? I wanted SnK to at least average 50k....

Not so fast - remember that Eva was split into multiple editions when they re-did the listing. Also look at what is two spots ahead of Shingeki: Nanoha 2nd A's Super LE, which sold 53,429 first week and 64,910 to date. There are often some differences between the yearly ranking on Amazon and final Oricon sales too.

Also even if the numbers went like you described that would be nowhere near Nana's level. Nana went from 63,284 v1 to 10,977 v2 and down to 1,803 v17.

Wonder how long NekoShiro will stay at the top?
Until we know it, these are the data for the length recent Monogatari series spent on #1 in Amazon:

NISE 10 days 17 hours

NEKO KURO 5 days 4 hours
That seems like a surprisingly short time given how ridiculously popular that franchise is (only Gundam Unicorn seems to have more pull in Japan these days). Unless you're just talking about discs in general or not anime in which case I can see that.
Indeed I am talking about BD of all genres. Even Monogatari franchaise needs to compete with blockbuster Hollywood movies, top idol concert shows and popular TV series for #1 position in Amazon BD sales chart and there is no certainty that it can win against those competitions.

You can be sure that whenever we quote the Amazon BD sales ranking it is from the general BD chart because this is the position shown in the Amazon Stalker (and also the position data the Stalker uses to calculate its sales prediction).


True. Idols and the odd Disney movie are sort of in a league of their own. Gundam Unicorn and Evangelion are the only thing I could reasonably see shrugging off that sort of competition in Japan without much struggle. I think it helps Monogatari's situation too that it usually airs during seasons where any realistic competition in anime is non-existent.

It also helps it's case that Gundam Unicorn volume 7 got delayed till 2014 to coincide with the 35th anniversary celebration. As popular as Monogatari is it couldn't reach or hold #1 if that were still coming out this fall. Not even the K-On film which came out at the peak of that franchises popularity was able to manage that feat against Vol 5 though it came respectably close in being 20,000 units off the mark which doesn't sound like a lot but considering Gundam Unicorns average BD volume sales are well in excess of 120,000+ is not half bad.
