any predictions for FSN UBW? 10k,20k,30k,40k ?!

Jan 28, 2015 11:21 AM by phreeak

Glad Haikyuu is doing well on the DVD charts. I can't wait until the second season :)

Jan 28, 2015 7:49 AM by Hikarusuke

Fucking Rail Wars sold more than Akame ga Kill...I'm done

Jan 27, 2015 7:49 PM by PriestSlayer

As always, good to see Haikyuu selling well.Also, i will have to check out that YuYuYu now i guess.
I'm more interested in next week tho, especially SnB and NnT.

LL still selling more than a thousand going into how many weeks in sale for vol7 now?


This is its 5th week of charting. However, looking at its ranking on Amazon... it will probably sell even more in week 6. Week 5 sold higher than week 4.

1: 51,985
2: *5,687
3: *2,207
4: *1,480
5: *1,634

But LL will probably continue to chart for many more weeks, and the upcoming movie will probably boost sales again. The mobile game still keeps the music sales constant despite the 2nd season finishing way back in June (The Best Live collection has charted for 107 consecutive weeks at Oricon for example, with the previous record holder at 80).

The upcoming 5th concert (Jan 31 and Feb 1), and the μ's Fan Meeting Tour event lottery (runs from Dec 25~Feb 1 and Feb 8~Feb 22) has also kept interest in the BD sales. So that is why Vol.7 sales still remains pretty high after so many weeks, and the Season 1 re-releases and Vol.1~6 of Season 2 are still charting after all this time.

I have been tracking LL's CD, anime BD, concert BD/DVD, light novel and manga sales since April 2014 here: http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=1156141#msg30226161

S1 re-releases have all added an average of ~2k sales since they last charted in the weekly BD100.

特装限定版【全7巻】 平均: *5,938 (*7,822 taking lower bounds)
巻数  初動  2週計  累計  発売日
01巻 4,391 4,760 6,288 14.05.28 [7/25 weeks: 8,207~8,268]
02巻 4,314 4,664 6,012 14.05.28 [7/25 weeks: 8,110~8,207]
03巻 4,397 4,715 5,981 14.05.28 [7/22 weeks: 7,476~7,524]
04巻 5,060 5,417 6,736 14.05.28 [7/26 weeks: 8,927~8,957]
05巻 5,789 6,154 6,674 14.05.28 [4/19 weeks: 8,755~8,785]
06巻 4,419 4,752 5,254 14.05.28 [4/19 weeks: 7,175~7,219]
07巻 3,862 4,168 4,624 14.05.28 [4/15 weeks: 6,107~6,116]

2nd Season has passed 62K average and is still missing 6 weeks of sales from Vol.1, as the difference between the lower and upper bound is still too large for Vol.1. If Vol.1 ends up passing Gundam UC 7 on the BD extended ranking (http://www.oricon.co.jp/prof/34386/rank/blu-ray/p/2/), then we can be absolutely sure it has sold at least 118,997 units at the minimum, therefore increasing the average by 447 units.

Bahamut was ranking pretty well for a while, haven't kept track of it though, it'll probably do fine.
wasnt it ranking well when G reco was suppossedly on track to do like 20 K though?
Don't think that means much though, pretty sure that an isolated issue.

Yay for YuYuYu ^_^ hopefully this'll encourage the studio to include an extra OVA or something.

Ookami shoujo didn't even place for the BD... Thought it was at least entertaining

Oh wow, I didn't knew this was coming out. Definitely checking that out. Though not sure how I feel about the coloring of these HD remakes of old titles.

Well anyways sports anime are slaying this week and Cross Ange dropped sales by half ouch. I'm guessing something came with the first volume.


Actually Cross Ange didn't drop by half. It's first volume BD sales went like this:

*4. 6,530 *6,530 Cross Ange: Tenshi to Ryuu no Rondo Vol.1
*8. *,734 *7,264 Cross Ange: Tenshi to Ryuu no Rondo Vol.1
13. *,619 *7,883 Cross Ange: Tenshi to Ryuu no Rondo Vol.1
15. *,324 *8,207 Cross Ange: Tenshi to Ryuu no Rondo Vol.1

and eventually other sources gave us the combined BD+DVD sales of:

*4. *8,855 Cross Ange: Tenshi to Ryuu no Rondo Vol. 1

putting it's known DVD sales at 648

Cross Ange Volume 2 BD and DVD sales look like this:

*6. 4,506 *4,506 Cross Ange: Tenshi to Ryuu no Rondo Vol.2 [BD]
13. *,423 **,423 Cross Ange: Tenshi to Ryuu no Rondo Vol.2 [DVD]

So it's first week BD sales dropped by around 2000 copies, or about 30%, while it's first week DVD sales are at about 65% of it's known total volume 1 DVD sales, with how that compares to the first week DVD sales being unknown.

So it's experiencing a drop, yes. But how big a drop remains to be seen. You can't compare 4 weeks of sales for volume 1, to one week of sales for volume 2, and say it's sales dropped by half. Right now, it's on track to do a good percentage of it's volume 1 sales.

That Yuuki Yuuna v2, good to see those v1 numbers weren't just from the bonus stuff, v1 might still pass Yowamushi Pedal this week but YP will probably rank in future weeks too, it does look like it has event ticket though, same for its v2.
PP2 and Cross Ange also drop heavily because of event ticket, so much for those, Yuuki Yuuna has a solid chance at 2nd best selling this season.


And I would so love to see that happen. The good news for us Yuki Yuna fans is that those aren't event-ticket boosted numbers either, so it has a very good chance of sustaining an overall average somewhere in the 8.5-9k range. I'm interested to see how v3 sells, because that's the only one of the first four volumes that doesn't have a significant bonus item with it (v1 had the visual novel, v2 has a character image song CD, and v4 is supposed to have a soundtrack CD - I assume with extra music that didn't fit on the first OST CD).

YowaPeda volumes 1 and 2 do both have event tickets - the true test for that series' staying power will be volume 3.

The most interesting v2 to watch will actually be Gundam G, because there was a massive discrepancy with v1 between the sales totals reported by Oricon and Soundscan - the latter reported v1 selling almost twice as many copies as what Oricon reported (something like 8.5k in just the first week). V2 is out next week, and if its Oricon numbers take a huge jump over v1, that would be a good indication that something got misreported somewhere.

Doesnt matter for NnT, as I've heard, it will get enough money from TVs, cuz its super popular...

Not impressing sales on the list, to be honest... I hope UBW will do its work
Also Bahamut will do fine, I believe.
Log horizon will sell 4-5k at best. same for Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso


Bahamut is tracking at around 7k BDs, so it ought to be pretty healthy. NnT has an event ticket with v1, and the later volumes are tracking much lower right now, but it's also an Aniplex series and those tend to get underestimated on stalker.

Another slow week but next week will be anxiety central as the next batch of Cinderella Master CDs will be out (Nina's especially needs to sell well).

Girlfriend (Kari) didn't sell well, I wanted a S2 with a solid premise instead of none.
i think it sold pretty well for the type of anime and budget it is

it def made a profit even with such low sales
