This. At least the anime boosted the manga sales alot.

On the subject of whether MCA is cheap or not.

On Amazon, a volume is rougly between 5k and 6k yen. A MCA volume is 2.6k yen, so its around 5.2k yen. So it really seems to be about average, at best its a few bucks cheaper.

So this is a totally random question directed at rederoin, but how exactly do you do estimates for anime vols.? I'm just curious.


I'm not rederoin but I'll answer anyway.

He uses the sales prediction figures on amazon stalker

Indeed. Outside of that you can also speculate how store-front heavy it is. But that is not something I include(only in the comments).

If you don't like to see your favourite anime being not on top, then why not support the anime that you've enjoyed? Don't just think that everything is ruin just because an anime that you dislike is sitting on top. That person whom purchased up to over 50 copies actually does something to contribute. Then again, if that's how you would like to feel, then it's your problem. The anime industry has never been in a sad state, ever. You are.


I could totally agree. Even if you dislike an anime that doesn't mean it's bad , it's not up to your tastes , but there are others out there that love it and want to support it because it gave them a great time. While they do something for their favorite anime , other people do nothing but arguing about it xD. Pitiful i would say.

Thank you so much! I appreciate this ^_^

As expected, Tokiya sold the most, though I've always thought Otoya was the most popular guy though that changed after Maji Love 2000%

Cecil did better than I expected him to. Since he was suddenly introduced as the new Starish member and had some ppl hating him during the anime's airing, I was a bit worried.

Is there any info on the sempai-tachi? I know their CDs are just released a few months ago, and Camus' hasn't been released yet. but just asking anyway.

It becomes easier to understand when you see people willing to buy 55 copies of vol 1. But seriously, S2 of Love Live has been great and an improvement from S1, which is already a better K-On. So I pity those who haven't been watching it.

55 copies of a single volume?! What the flying fuck... LL is fun and all but that is bordering fucking obsession. I should probably stop thinking any further about this. Otherwise I'll just make myself sad realizing what sad state the anime industry and community are in.

Is it too much to ask for a compilation of the sales for the individual UtaPri idol songs frm Maji Love 2000%?

I know Ranmaru sold ard 27 or 29K, Otoya sold 26K, Cecil & Syo sold 22K each... Reiji's was 19K?

If someone would put them up, it would be helpful. ^^

Has Noragami been doing poorly in general? I don't know what is considered "good" or "bad" in sales, since I'm usually not interested in 2nd seasons... but damn, Noragami has plenty of material left to animate and it's really good.

I'm not sure if it was a realistic estimate, but 2ch seemed to be predicting 50K bare minimum for each disc before the show aired, but instead it looks like only Love Live has even a chance of closing in on that average. I don't think it's going to do it, but then it's hard to predict where it's at exactly because when the season started all of the discs were clustered towards the top of the preorder charts in sequential order on pretty much every vendor out there and as we saw the first volume for it was vastly underestimated and it just doesn't seem to slow down the same way most series releases do. It's hard to tell just how many preorders that show got during the early weeks of it being available and it's just so absurdly popular.

I don't think Mekaku City Actors is likely to remain the 2nd best selling series of the Spring season either since a lot of potential heavy hitters like Haikyuu and Jojo have yet to come out and both should have some pretty strong DVD representation.


I have the 2ch sales predictions (in terms of averages) from before the Spring Season started saved. Obviously some are way off now, and the Love Live! prediction is much higher than the initial 29.3k now. What I think is the Top 4 for Spring 2014 is Love Live!, Haikyuu!!, JoJo and possibly Mekaku... but it remains to be seen if Mekaku can hold over 12 volumes.

My prediction for Love Live! sales are (but I hope I am underestimating Vol.2~7 sales, since they will definitely have a large storefront effect) below. Vol.2 will be out on July 25th, which will be a big indicator of how the other volumes will sell.

Vol.1: 110~115k
Vol.2~6: 40~45k
Vol.7: 40~45k or 80~85k (if another suspected event ticket is bundled)

Average: 50k~55k or 55.7k~60.7k (if another suspected event ticket is bundled)
