The sales are underwhelming :O


Should've been obvious, since the week of Jan 12~18 only had 5 new "animation" releases. SHIROBAKO Vol.1 is ranked 30th overall on BDs this week, while Momokyun Sword Vol.3 is 51st overall.

I wonder if we'll ever see a really dead week, where the 20th ranked Animation BD is ranked outside the Top 100 BDs overall. The week of Nov 10~16 got close to that, with the 20th ranked Animation BD was ranked 90th overall on BDs, lol.

Slow week, it won't pick up until the next batch of Cinderella Master CDs come out which is February 5th.


Will be interesting to see if the current anime actually boosts CD sales. For reference, these are the sales of the previous batch of Cinderella Master CDs (#26~#30). All were released on April 30, 2014 and were all 720 yen each.

1st week sales / Cumulative sales / # Weeks Charted / CD Name
15,854 18,942 *5 THE IDOLM@STER CINDERELLA MASTER 026 星輝子
16,779 19,637 *5 THE IDOLM@STER CINDERELLA MASTER 027 神谷奈緒
17,101 20,092 *5 THE IDOLM@STER CINDERELLA MASTER 028 北条加蓮
14,746 17,154 *4 THE IDOLM@STER CINDERELLA MASTER 029 小早川紗枝
14,507 16,752 *4 THE IDOLM@STER CINDERELLA MASTER 030 堀裕子

Although some singles have resurfaced in the full CD single list this week... these ones are a bit more expensive at 1,296 yen each.

Rank / Last week rank / Weekly sales / Cumulative sales / # Weeks Charted / CD Name & Artist

Replace the "4" in "Persona 4" with a "3" and I'll be happy as hell. I need to watch the second movie ASAP.

+1

Cross Ange is good I admit once you get past the shitty first 4 or 5 episodes.

Jan 20, 2015 7:10 AM by Roloko

So this is what happiness feels like :O feels good :)

15. *,324 *8,207 Cross Ange: Tenshi to Ryuu no Rondo Vol.1

Jan 20, 2015 5:47 AM by dankzel

It seems that Persona 4b begins to fall down, make its 10k average mark much harder. As well as other summer shows, people start to stop buying their BDs

About Fall, we have 3 Aniplex shows: F/SN, 7deadlysin, Shigatsu. Stalker lost itts track on the first, got ~4k5 on the second, and about 4k on the 3rd. May be we can see 2 or 3 more 10k first vol

For anyone who interests in how underrated stalker is on Aniplex show (thanks to Amazon >><< Aniplex)

Jan 20, 2015 5:14 AM by moonnya

Very slow week this, sad to see Momo Kyun Sword sell so little, not an amazing show but jolly good fun with fab character designs.

Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken sold mor than I anticipated though, which is both good and kinda disappointing as it was a brilliant show, at least S2 has been announced already.

87. ***,722 *47,542 SCANDAL "HELLO WORLD"[quote]
Think I expected too much from this album as I've been rather disappointed since it arrived last month, barely listened to it at all. Loving the t-shirt though.

Jan 20, 2015 4:40 AM by VulgarLife

Cross Ange baby. It's over 8000 now. YES!

One of the best new anime of 2014.

Jan 20, 2015 4:16 AM by Zapredon

P4G really is something, not only the game sold like crazy but same goes to anime as well.
Btw, cross ange must watch anime after finish airing. Look forward to it. ^^

Jan 20, 2015 3:45 AM by NajSuarez94

Well, I guess I should give cross ange a try o.o

Jan 20, 2015 2:30 AM by alpha_shadow

Initial D movie on top 10 as well as Shirobako too. Nice.

I'm not fond of Psycho-Pass Movie theme song, but like the TV series OPs. I like Eden. Too sad to see AAA album, Conan album, and Mai Kuraki Best album to be gone.
