I'm curious to see where Love Live will end up once all is said and done and all the BD's are out and how it'll play into the 2nd half of the year.


We will have to see where Vol.2 (release on July 25th) ends up first to gauge how the anime will sell in terms of average. Vol.2~7 will also have significant storefront sales, so the Stalker estimates aren't so useful for Love Live! Some are suspecting another event ticket application will be bundled with Vol.7, so if that comes true then expect it to also sell massive numbers (don't think quite as high as Vol.1, since it'll have 2 episodes instead of 1 this time).

Vol.1 is looking to have a massive 2nd week. Recent daily rankings below... Vol.1 is above Koimonogatari on release day and post release day, above Date A Live II on pre-release day. Koimonogatari would've sold most on pre-release day since it is more Amazon heavy, but still a fair chunk on BDs on release day, maybe 5k or so for Koimono on release day.

BD

The behemoth that is Madoka has taken its rightful place. Very pleasing numbers I see there.

Nice to see Gintama at the top 3 :D

Well deserved top three or so I was about to say. Yet to see the first two! But I know I shall enjoy! Yorozuya yo Eien Nare is probably the best anime movie I have seen all year.

And then the list also has lots of Monogatari and SnK, which was expected.

But what got my attention was this:

25. *14,794 Natsume Yuujinchou: Itsuka Yuki no Hi ni Limited Edition[/url]


Can we please expect more Natsume?

Other wishes include Monogatari Final and Gintama - The Beginning of the Epic Finale. (I think only Gintama fans will understand what that means :D)

ahhh yeahh Totoro

i guess i'll try to watch it later.

Interesting that Rebellion did not perform that well on the box office (ranked around the 25th place overall) though it's the top selling disk of 2014 so far.


Pretty sure Rebellion set a new box office record for a late night anime adaptation. Of course a non-Ghibli anime film won't compare well with mainstream movies.

Jun 24, 2014 9:05 PM by Monoriu

One Piece on the top DVD list. Let's go.

And an adaptation of Monogatari Final Season once the last book gets released.


I hope for more Natsume too!

Monogatari is kind of confirmed already though. I am pretty sure SHAFT said they were going to animate all of it at one point?

To see Monogatari Serie have so many sales just makes me happy, totally deserves it. Looks like the SnK hype is slowly passing.

Jun 24, 2014 10:17 AM by Azerola

Conspicuously missing Love Live Vol 1. Also Sunrise clearly doing VERY well (they arguably take DVD and Music and if you actually include Love Live too have a sizeable chunk of Blu-Ray) but of course it's MAL so people only see the SHAFT stuff that's doing well and comment on that cause they're just the greatest. Not that they aren't doing well again with their like two hit franchises ever period.....one of which is dwindling in sales averages pretty noticeably from it's peak 4 years ago, but like man it's clearly so not all about them as some people make it out to be. I'm curious to see where Love Live will end up once all is said and done and all the BD's are out and how it'll play into the 2nd half of the year.

Edit: Oh my bad it didn't make the cut cause it came out a week and a half after the first half list cutoff happened.

Jun 24, 2014 10:08 AM by PeacingOut

It's quite a surprise seeing Tsuki no Ookisa so high in the list. It's a pleasant surprise, though.

SAO shouldn't even be on this list


I guess people are still butthurt about SAO.
