Someone sure is taking their time to release the latest sales news...

Glad to see Arpeggio and NNB sell well. The latter really deserves such fame given its lighthearted and cute story, while the former too has a nice plot, but has also got incredible visuals and naval battles going for it.

how much Machine Doll wa Kizutsukanai Blurays sold? Hope it doesnt bomb so hard. i want a 2nd season ;<<


DxD has good average from over 8k Sales each volume. Hope there will be a 3rd Season announcement soon.


It will be interesting to see if there's a possible OVA with one of the upcoming DxD volumes and they could announce it that way again. Volume 17 is coming out before the final BD volume releases, so maybe after that. It would seem like a smart decision to make another OVA since the past two sold roughly 15k each.

UMD got 1.5K DVDs and will likely get 3-4K BDs if we're lucky. Unfortunately for this publisher/production committee this has not been enough in the past for season 2, they usually want 6K+ sales and even those have given them poor 2nd seasons while their 8K+ sellers generally do well in the second season. I bought UMD v1 and love it, especially the novel 0 "Facing Shadow Moon", Yaya's, ahem, enhancements in the episodes and the character song and solo versions of Maware! Setsugetsuka on the bonus CD are great so I did my part but too few others bought it, sigh...

HS DxD I expect we will see... NEW and Improved???

You know what? I'm just going to assume NNB sold 1k DVD's(if you include this weeks sales). Just because.

Jan 5, 2014 6:26 AM by rederoin

So.... Non Non 7.5k and Aoki 10k....

*Does the Banderas thingy*

--------------------------

On another note, DxD is consistent as always.

I wonder how much is added to Shingeki besides the 1k DVD, since the threshold for BD was too high. Do we get a full chart for something like that?

Jan 5, 2014 6:20 AM by Xinception

So is there going to be a 'full' list as well, or will the top 30 DVD/top 20 BD be all we'll get for that week?

So many paying dust to this anime.

Well at least i'm happy that Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio and Non Non Biyori did great, hope for string second week for both of them (1+K).

Are there any estimates from 2ch about how Space Dandy will sell? I'm really interested in seeing the Japanese reaction.


It's a gag series, the odds of it being a significant seller in Japan is near zero.

happy for non non biyori, hope it'll add some more!! aoty 2013 for me
nice sales for utapri too, not the extreme event ticket effect like v1, but still really good.
poor ilya didn't rank either.

I was about to contact you about that. I still cant seem to connect.

I sent some emails to one of the Mania guys, he contacted the team that would be able to look into the ad servers. Now we sit back and see if they are as slow as usual to react or what. Might be quicker since it affects the whole site (or anywhere you'd get ads I guess), not just the forums.

Adblocking these fixed it for me in Fiefox:

FYI if you're getting forced redirects when trying to connect to mania, use this backup link. Something got into the adservers and is forcing a redirect, you can get around it by blocking scripts not originating from the mania.com domain, but in any event I doubt they'll fix it before they're back in on Monday.

I'm not sure that 2ch really does the formalized sales prediction survey thing anymore, mostly because they were generally hilariously wrong.

7,546 **1 Non Non Biyori v1 (sold out everywhere though, so expect a big 2nd week)

It was always in stock at Amazon, I think the OOS was mostly with physical retailers in Akiba. So it's hard to tell how big the second week will be... but hopefully Kinmosa sized (so well over 1k). v2 has been ranking very well since v1 came out so fingers crossed it doesn't drop much.

Mania appears to be having a malware infection problem. Not listed as a safe site.
