Updated the v2 drops.

For both Hoozuki no Reitetsu and Nisekoi v2 went up, which caused a big change its estimated drop.


With Hoozuki no Reitetsu we now actually have a small chance at getting a 10k seller.

Madoka movie might sell 100k?
Thats insane.

Might? It'll probably outsell the K-on! movie(140k first week). Madoka is most likley underestimated by stalker.

So I assume Hanamonogatari will count as a Spring TV series in the rankings, right? It runs on TV for 5 episodes (similar to how Thermae Romae ran for 3 episodes and counted in the rankings), so I would think it counts but I just want to make sure.

The monogatari tv special that aired on 31 December 2012 was counted as a winter 2013 anime, so I assume the same goes for Hanamonogatari.

V1 and v2 will not get any crazy sales, they will have decent(maybe good) numbers though. But v3+ is looking grim.


Not as grim as it looked earlier, I feel. Now it's at 2.6k for volume 3. And if it has storefront effect, it'll get 3k probably. That isn't great but not exactly grim either.

I haden't checked v3 for a while, but thats good news for Winter 2014's sales.

Yeah, I'm seriously looking forward to next week's sales. I expect to see some crazy numbers.


Noragami's sales would be out next week, right? I hope to see some crazy numbers too, at least for Noragami. Decent-Good sales is fine too, just so Bones will be convinced into making a second season.

Along with a bunch of other shows.

borrowed the list from jmal's website

It was such a busy week for me last week.

Good pre and release day position for WUG v1 so I hope it could be storefront heavy and or underestimated.

This is interesting. I wonder though, if winter 2013/2014 is as weak in sales as it appears and IIRC Fall wasn't too great in numbers either, will we see a drop for 2014?

Kill la Kill blurays in the top 100, Strike The Blood sold out days ago, kinda good for autumn.
Noragami, Nisekoi blurays sold out days ago...being in danger of being sold out again...WUG charting strong on its first day. Looks like winter has some good storefront sales going on even with event tickets.

Also...man WCW is nowhere to be found in the charts after day 1? What happened here??


WCW vol.1 > 121th

All the crap non action animes are selling too high. From the blu-ray sales only Attack on Titan has action with serious story. What is more disappointing that most of these selling high are probably the worst animes in this season. Even imocho is better than any of these.

No wonder why most animes these days are horrible. I guess we will never see anything like berserk or claymore with a proper adaptation. People prefer slice of life and generic comedy shows.


Lol he mad

I know right? And a lot of them watch anime illegally and they think they have the right to what kind of anime trends we should have,


That's what paying streaming sites are for and the Japanese watch it on TV too and most of them don't support the shows either, what's their excuse?

Blu-ray and dvd isn't the only way to support shows, I mostly buy merchandise for a lot of series and the shows I'm obsessed with I buy the discs.
