Haikyuu? A sales disappointment?..

I won't even bother with this, a waste of ttime. Believe whatever you want to believe.


You clearly were bothered because you even quoted me. A reminder that haikyuu isn't even out yet, so there's still no disappointing sales yet. It is all just speculations.
You remind me of symbv and jmal. So stuck up.


Jmal I get but I've never understood why symbv had that reputation too. Personally I don't know why he had to respond to you or even me like that but that's just the way some people are. A simple response like Cedronias more than suffices and yeah my understanding is that Ha ikyuu! has been quite the success. Actually one of my favorites this season too even if Ping Pong has pulled a little ahead on the sports front. What a great little hidden gem that one's turning out to be.

Haikyuu looks to be doing close to Kuroko sales, which is what I expected. I wouldn't call it a sales disappointment in any way.

And regarding the Aniplex timeslot, I just assumed it would be Persona 4 Golden paired along with Sword Art Online.

Yes. 1% increase would certainly affect the sales tremendously. Anime costs too much nowadays.


Rich kid and its understandings of economics. Good sarcasm, though. It will get you chicks fast.

NGNL delivers one 10/10 episode after another while Mahouka is a good watch. Get rekt.

^ I doubt it will affect sales but I really thought SAO2 will be the flagship aniplex show this summer. Oh well....Persona or Aldnoah, I guess.

SAO2 will be taking the nisekoi/monogatari commentaries 23:30 timeslot. Do we know what will aniplex will put on the 24:00 slot/hegemony slot as termed by 2ch?
Mahouka is on 24:30 timeslot with a 2-cour so is there a possibility it will be moved to 24?

Free2 or Grisaisa or Tokyo ESP? or Persona4GA?


2ch is shocked. Everyone is expecting SAO to air on 12mn saturday. That is the best possible timeslot for an anime according to them. Is Tokyo ESP even an aniplex show? I'd go with Persona 4g or they can extend Mekaku City.

Your prediction of Haikyuu!! disappointment is also a speculation not supported with facts. Haikyuu!! is doing fine on Amazon so far which is a fact

Yeah, but what are you speculations based on? Because Haikyuu is looking just fine on amazon and there's already a decent manga sales boost for it. Doesn't seem to be disappointing yet, but whatever.

It's really only here that it seems like that big a deal but yeah I pretty much agree it's just kind of like your typical fantasy harem LN that gets a good budget and studio that tries their hardest to make the most of it. I feel like there's been a show just like it every season for a while now, particularly with the game and wish fulfillment twist and I've yet to see anything that really sets it apart since the game mechanic aspect isn't even particularly interestingly executed nor is the strategy aspect. Anyway I think there's a misunderstanding on MAL that because the site is hyping it up through the stratosphere every week seemingly for the lulz that it's the same in Japan.

Or maybe, just very maybe.

They. Just. Fucking. Enjoy. Watching. The. Godamn. Show. Oh wait, I fogot. Its only okay to hype shitty sunrise shows, i'm sorry.

May 17, 2014 5:04 AM by rederoin

Hyped in the west or not,the hype in JP from some shows certainly ended up in disappointment if you look at the sales projections. Particularly mekaku, mahouka and haikyuu. Mekaku and haikyuu might have strong storefronts but we'll see. Maybe, just maybe, the tax increase in one factor.

How is Mahouka "underrated" when it's one of the most discussed anime of the season?


Was one of the most discussed anime of the season. The impression I get is that NGNL has came out of nowhere to completely steal the spotlight on Mahouka, and I don't get the impression that Dengeki and Aniplex will be pleased by how their "next SAO" turned out to be.


Its not like NGNL is doing better. Its projected to sell like 3k while Mahouka is projected to sell about 6k.

And just my personal opinion, but NGNL doesn't seem better than any other fantasy harem LN anime so I don't really get why its taken off in the West. Its not bad but its not great either.

i believe it because Mahouka is very confusing. also that show start very slow and boring.
just like Log Horizon, even though i think Log Horizon is much better than SAO, i still think SAO is more entertaining.

now a days people like easier stuff and maybe more action and tension.
many of them and maybe i myself think that it is stupid to learn the info dump because we don't need it in real life at all.

simply to say, you only need watch something you like and enjoy.

Neither show is particularly great IMO and somehow I doubt it has anything to do with that. My guess is both shows have a lot of drama and hype and people don't realize it really doesn't reflect on much sales wise in a foreign country. Both shows definitely have that element that amiluhur mentioned and they're just kind of the worst so maybe that has something to do with it all.
