Amagi Brilliant Park is selling surprisingly well, I didn't expect that many sold copies.
SAO selling amazingly, expected.
Cross Ange selling way too good, I thought people didn't like it?
Nice to see Mahouka having amazing sales, I'm looking forward for a sequel, it was amazing.

I'd still rather have cute girls in the top spots than have harem-ecchi LN adapatations there.


And I would rather have harem-echii LN adaptations, than Emo stories like AgK. And thanks god, Japan is not that stupid to bring them on tops too often. ^^


I dunno man, I dropped half way through AgK but a that point it seemed pretty upbeat about it's violence. What does ''emo'' stand for nowadays?

youre a delightful person

And no shit i realize gunpla sales account for alot, it doest change the fact that sunrise is going to likely see the discrepancy in sales between their shows performance, cause while making profit off toy sales is fine and dandy, the best case scenario is making money off of both toy sales and show sales. They can still do fine, but at this point G reco is probably one of the lesser performing gundams, likely above G, X, and age but not above much else.

I think the G Reco sales are decent enough even if it's low for Gundam. I hope this helps Tomino's plans for Ideon.

A lot of ignorant people seem to forget seem to forget that plethora of Gundam series that bombed and think SEED is the standard for Gundam sales when it's just an exception. Also forgetting the fact that Gundam has always strived on Gunpla sales over video format. [quote=JizzyHitler]

why do all the of the low selling anime with no data from last season feature cute girls

wait did he want to do more ideon? I think i vaguely recall you saying that before, what did he want to do a remake, i mean well


that said i think sunrise is gonna be considering G reco a flop even if its decent sales for any other series, especially with the gigantic success of unicorn and love live outshadowing it with profit. /quote]

Oh look another idiot who has no idea what he's talking about.

And since when has sunrise ever been one to actually let tomino do anything? They sound like they have been fucking the dude over for decades and it even looks like its their fault G reco ended up being a gundam and not a standalone series. I may not like the dudes directing but you can deifnetly tell alot of his shows would been better if sunrise hadnt tampered with them.

Thank you very much for your data, are very useful.

looks like expelled from paradise will not reach 50K sales

I don't think so.


It has sold at least 51,237 at the minimum at Oricon (DVD stopped charting 2 weeks ago, and the BD RE may/may not chart in the full list), but far from the 100K someone here on MAL was saying...

BD LE: 46,998
BD RE: 2,854~2,921 (http://www.oricon.co.jp/prof/34386/rank/blu-ray/p/142/)
DVD: 1,385~1,386 (http://www.oricon.co.jp/prof/34386/rank/dvd/p/746/)

It would seem plausible. I mean the unit has Maki in it who is kind of the all around most popular character and Eli and Nico who are pretty popular too.


I see. I always got the vibe that Nozomi and Kotori were some of the most popular girls, lol (but I guess they are both in different units).


Here are the subunit sales. 1st singles, there wasn't much separating their 1st week sales, perhaps Love Live! gained a few hundred fans between June 2011 and July 2011. For the 2nd singles, BiBi is the clear favourite (with a much longer tail), and the 3rd singles just pretty much makes this incredibly obvious, with a huge difference in 1st week sales. Printemps is close to BiBi in total sales, as it has been on sale for 6 extra weeks.

Silent tonight (BiBi) 14/12/25 [Animate, all 7 BD bonus]
同じ星が見たい (lily white) 14/12/25 [softmap, all 7 BD bonus]
CheerDay CheerGirl! (Printemps) 14/12/25 [gamers, all 7 BD bonus]
58,280 *67,018 **2 冬がくれた予感 (BiBi) 14/12/24
40,116 *59,862 **6 秋のあなたの空遠く (lily white) 14/11/26
38,546 *64,021 **8 永遠フレンズ (Printemps) 14/11/12
15,700 *23,600 *12 Pure girls project (Printemps) 13/08/21
16,618 *28,991 *27 Cutie Panther (BiBi) 13/07/24
15,463 *25,361 *19 微熱からMystery (lily white) 13/06/26
*1,257 **1,257 **1 知らないLove*教えてLove (lily white) 11/07/27
*1,078 **1,078 **1 ダイヤモンドプリンセスの憂鬱 (BiBi) 11/06/22
*1,022 **1,022 **1 Love marginal (Printemps) 11/05/25

I have observed Maki and Nico are pretty popular, so it sorta makes sense how BiBi is dominating. However, the bonus CD for purchasing all 7 BDs at Animate, gamers, and/or softmap, I think lily white's song is best out of the 3.

The most recent poll in the Love Live! School Idol Festival mobile game, which has over 6 million players now, had Maki #1, Kotori #2, Nico #3, Rin #4, and Hanayo #5. There is another poll going on right now in all versions (Japan, English, Korea, Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese) of the mobile game to mark the over 10 million players worldwide milestone. We shall see what the order is on February 5th... so I am hoping Maki wins again, lol.

It's been great to see Yuyuyu in the rankings for the last couple weeks, I'm glad I decided to start importing this series.

I am only halfway through Trinity Seven, but got rather bored with it. However, the soundtrack for it is pretty damn amazing. Not importing the series, but definitely ordered the OST.

Because Japan loves generic moeblobs for some stupid reason.
