Hoping that Baby Steps have good sales.


I'm sorry to burst your bubble, but Baby Steps ranked outside the Top 300 DVDs this week.

An idol image DVD (清水楓 派遣ファイル) sold 164 DVDs this week, and was ranked 294 on DVD. Thus, Baby Steps obviously sold less than 164 DVDs. Not that its low video sales matter as much, due to its time slot and TV channel of airing.

Isshuukan Friends is not doing bad.

Spring season's sales seem pretty good overall.

Awesome to see Mahouka in the top sellers, I find the anime pretty amazing.

Its a NHK-E anime, sales are not important.

Explain us why, please. Is it because the channel is paid?


No, probably because NHK-E station doesn't care about DVD/BD sales but viewership ratings in deciding to continue with the anime adaptations. Look at Log Horizon, that is also in NHK-E, it will have a 2nd season when it has an average of 3.8k sales BD and DVD.
