How is the spring titles looking? Like Isshuukan Friends?

You're back to posting links only? Oh that's not nice, red. I look forward to your prediction posts every week, you know.

Fixing typos/editing 2/3 posts takes a lot of time, but don't worry, i'll still post my comments every 2(or each) week on here. Or atleast untill Symbv gets back, since he's way better at this, since he actually visits Japanese forums.

Not that I want to miss any opportunity to advertise the news club on MAL, where symbv will be posting once he gets back.

No, the average is far below 10k. Anime selling 10k and more are hits and they're mostly very good.


so, Infinite Stratos is very good ?
First season was, for a harem. Hijinks done right, good girls, great art. Not much to complain about. I'd prefer if it sold 5k instead of >30k but oh well, there has to be some mysterious exception in the top. Plus as Ejc (thanks!) pointed out, I said "mostly", not "all".

we need MOAR Space Dandy, hopefully it sells better outside Japan.
It won't sell better overseas, at least BD-wise (or if it does sell better, that would only be thanks to dirt-cheap discs meaning they wouldn't provide a lot of money anyway). However it might turn profitable thanks to merchandise, TV re-runs etc.

The first season of Infinite Stratos had amazing sales, averaging almost 34,000 per volume.

Right now that puts the show as the 22nd best selling full-length show since sales were recorded properly, which started around 1999. That number goes even higher if we start talking about individual franchises as opposed to individual shows. For instance both seasons of K-On and 3 seasons of Monogatari take up 5 of the 21 shows that are above the first season of Infinite Stratos, making that rank of 22 even more impressive.

Key words here, "they're mostly very good". He didn't say every anime above 10k+ were very good watches to him. Clearly IS is enjoyable and rewatchable to the people who bought it, because they would not buy it if they didn't. I'm sure you know how expensive anime is in Japan.

They finally release the no game no life op song ( at least that make me happy )

I am also pleased to see the CD single sales. Outbreak Company also on the top 10, season 2 soon please
No. It sells badly so S2 is unlikely. Rank in the top means absolutely nothing. #1 of one week might be less than #5 of other week.

It does sell. Not too much but it isn't a catastrophe either.

Depends on the quality of the show but 10K is real good and 3000 to 5000 should be average.

Maybe they can still break even :(
