Yeah Ping Pong is a manga that finished ages ago, and Shinsekai yori is a novel.

I was wondering about that...I'm not sure about Ping Pong, but I thought there was a novel associated with Shinsekai Yori.

Gochuumon wa Usagi desu ka selling better than Kuroko no Basket *facepalm*


Where did you get that from? Did you make sure to look at DVD sales too? Kurobasu is doing much more than GochiUsa.

It's a shame because it's one of the better original series Aniplex has helped produced in a long long time (probably since Shin Sekai Yori) and probably for a long time to come. No hype, no overt pandering and big promises, just a simple 11 episode show that adapts an old story and does so in a surprisingly interesting and memorable way.


Aniplex doesn't seem to think Ping Pong will sell here either similar to SSY, since they didn't bother to license them to Aniplex of America. These kinds of shows always seem to be popular on anime websites but when it comes to sales they tank.

Its not because the story sucked, rather it was how it was adapted that truly sucked.

So if Ping Pong doesn't chart next week do we just not know the final average?

Wow the difference between overall sales of Love Live and Haikyuu BD/DVD tho.. O.o
GochiUsa and NGNL sales went pretty well there.
Btw Mahouka sells really well in Japan, I wonder why?


Because the light novel is popular.

Collectors would want both.

The sales is better than I though it would be. I'm glad that best OP this season get more recognition.
...

(spelled wrong in first entry BTW, it is Team Hanayamata)
Meddigo said:
Surprised by how low Nozaki-kun ED is, considering it's one of the higher sellers for this season (much higher than Hanayamata at least). And didn't the OP come out as well? Did it honestly sell fewer than 874 copies?

The OP did sell, it is just missing here for some reason:

Always makes me sad that garbage like Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei sell so much.


The first part of Mahouka anime isn't good compared to light novel true. At least it still sells more than blatant otaku pandering trash like No game no life.


At least NGNL is entertaining unlike Mahouka the incest pandering snorefest.

Don't know if it's just the first part, but Mahouka has horrible characters, pretty colors, decent sound, and I would say an average plot... And horrible characters. Maybe it'll get better towards the end, but I kinda doubt it. Anyway, still want NGNL season 2 bad! Hope the sales can stay strong for the other volumes.
