Unless they are funding those shows, they will not have any problems.


I know they at least funded Glasslip, but it wouldn't matter if they never spent any money on production themselves, because outside sources will be reluctant to use a particular studio if nearly everything produced by them fails.


If you're concerned about financial trouble, I think it does matter if they spent money on production themselves. If you invested more money, you probably make more money in profit off of it (or lose more money if it fails). I don't know how much it matters, but to suggest that it wouldn't matter seems incorrect.

As for "outside sources", you are referring to production committees right? Do you have any evidence that P.A. Works is falling out of favor? I'm not sure any of us really knows for sure how production committees think...

Its not possible to know whether a show achieved its intended goal/profits, for us. Some studios are still doing fine after getting god knows how many badly selling show(i.e manglobe & Deen)


As I mentioned before, I'm not sure any of us really knows for sure how the committees think. At some point it's probably just better to admit that we honestly don't know things for sure. We can speculate, but yeah, unless one of us is on a production committee...

I wonder if P.A. Works will start having financial trouble. Uchōten Kazoku and Glasslip have both bombed, and Nagi no Asukara only sold modestly, they haven't had a hit in a long time.

Did you buy it in Japan or through a proxy in Japan? If not then, no you aren't one of the 915 though in that sense you could say it was at least 916. Oricon only counts domestic Japanese sales, not sales shipped outside of Japan so at least for me, I cannot say any of my sales were counted. Would be nice if they were but alas... they are not.


lol yeah I bought it at an Aeon last week (in Chiba).
Then as long as the store you bought it from reports to Oricon then yes, you have been counted! Thanks for your support... and very cool to have been in Chiba.

The incredible Love Live! 2nd Season sales continue. Such a good series.

Oct 7, 2014 1:40 PM by TroyAndAbed

Let us hope that there is sequel for Mahouka and NGNL. The sales don't look bad

> *2. 1,511 **1,511 Naruto: Shippuuden "Kakashi ANBU-hen - Yami wo Ikiru Shinobi" Vol.1 Limited Edition

The filler arc was well received I guess.

glasslip ? where are you ?


No where to be seen apparently, guessing it was as "well" received in Japan as it was over here. I never did manage to finish it but from what I saw it exactly didn't come across like a sure fire big seller.

I'm glad Barakamon's up there though, can't say I know a load about sales etc. but it seems to have done well for the type of show that it is.

We still in this btch ;)

15. *,343 **2,455 Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei "Nyuugaku-hen" Vol.3 Limited Edition

Hopefully "Kuroshitsuji : cruise of murder" is announced soon :)

too bad for Zankyou no Terror, why the japanese do not like shows like that


Implying Zankyou was good.

It's good but it's rewatch value is meh :(
Why buy something you'll never watch again? just watch it on TV and be done with it.

Date a Live,Nozaki,Barakamon,Gochuu and NGNL have pretty good sales,lets just hope for sequels.

Amagi Brilliant Park is overhyped, the anime is watchable and isn't terrible unlike other overhyped anime like SAO but not that great at all. Cross Ange is a bit generic, but it will become pretty good very fast, however it may also be overhyped as well. Kokkuri-san needs a lot more preorders. I really want to see the preorder rankings for Girlfriend (Kari) since it aims to please everyone.
