Damn. Free did way better than I expected.

Woah!!! Yay for hoping for 30K in the following weeks! And I wonder how v2 will do 30-40k maybe? :p

Sep 17, 2013 1:27 AM by mistress_kisara

Just for those who are curious about Free! sales, indeed the final numbers from Oricon fall within the range I said earlier (i.e. 23k-27k):

BD15,517 + DVD10,209 = 25,726

It is 70% higher than the Stalker estimate of 15.1k !!!!

It also overtakes the final total sales of KuroBas v1 in just one week:

^So you think its actually going to reach 30k in its first week instead?
From past performance of other female oriented shows it seems the Oricon numbers are not going to be very different from the SS numbers, at most it may be 10% off. So the Oricon should fall between 25k+/-10% which is around 23k-27k, so I don't think it will reach 30k in its first week.

Yeah I just figured out you weren't implying that hence the comment deletion, but thanks for the info.

On the topic of Free! the OST cover has been revealed: http://i.imgur.com/ElpMqIq.jpg

also the upcoming character duet songs:
Vol.1: Haruka and Makoto
Vol.2: Nagisa and Rei
Vol.3: Rin and Rei
Vol.4: Haruka and Rin

^ I always have a feeling that the underestimation of Stalker is going to be bigger for Free compared to say Chu2byo because this is generally the case for female-oriented show but if the figures above are the same in Oricon we are seeing some huge underestimation by Stalker...

Some past examples for female-oriented shows:

SS     Oron
13,633 → 13,698 UtaPri v2 BD
*9,250 → *9,563 UtaPri v2 DVD

10,351 → *9,242 KuroBas v9 BD
11,286 → 10,511 KuroBas v9 DVD

17,444 → --,--- Free v1 BD
10,837 → --,--- Free v1 DVD

Freezing season 2 also solicited in Amazon. V1 out on Xmas day:

http://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/B00F5AH9RC/
Official title seems like it really is "Freezing Vibration" from those listings. 6 volumes all the same price with 12 episodes again. "Sexy OVA" episodes again like first season, 1 per disc again. And a drama CD with disc 1, 3, 5, soundtrack with discs 2 and 4. Special oppai posters... sounds good already!

Too many to mention so I will just recommend my favorites that I believe also meet your criteria: Gatchaman Crowds, Baccano, Shingeki no Kyojin, Hunter x Hunter (2011), and Ginga Kikoutai Majestic Prince. All except Baccano are currently airing so its possible to catch up on them before they end.

Coppelion looks interesting to me, got that true apocalypse vibe! It's a seinen series too, so I don't have to worry much.... unless there're too much random fan services.

As for why the game is successful, it's pretty obvious characters omitted from the anime and manga, I've seen the cards and there were a few characters that I never seen from the anime.
Yes, the game site and also its news release show a couple of game original characters. But I doubt it is a major factor. The anime has >50 dolls in total and it is easy to imagine that some people would want some of them in their collection. I would say that in this sense the anime has been a very effective marketing tool for the game.
