Well, at least SaeKano sold well. S2 is confirmed now, yay.


Source? I haven't heard anything about it - nothing on the twitter account/website/from Fujimi Fantasia Bunko. There's an event Sunday week which I'd have thought would be a potential time to announce a second season if they were going to.

Lol did anything even sell good this time? Look at Kamisama Hajimemashita sales, so bad. It was so amazing yet... shame.

Well, at least SaeKano sold well. S2 is confirmed now, yay. Yay for Binan as well. Ansatsu's sales are pretty average, what the hell, Japan???

Happy Saekano is selling as much as it is, I really hope for a second season.

Kamisama, Maria and Yuri Kuma sales got me sad :(

They never expected it to sell anyway.
It's all about manga and merchandise sales (for almost every anime these days), which are doing great so 52 ep 2nd season next year ;)


While that's true in some cases, it is not true for the majority. Disc sales play a large part in series getting a second season still. It's mostly only kid shows that receive second seasons based on merch. and the like. A work aimed at adults would still need decent disc sales and a boost for the source for it to get a second season. There are always exceptions to that, though they are not the majority.

Daaang, Binan Koukou at almost 8k :O Although there were a few episodes I found to be boring, there were also many that were pretty funny. Good job with sales!

If you add the sales of season 2 with season 1 then it sold more than Durarara. Also in case your wondering Tokyo Ghoul manga got a huge boost while the LN for Durarara hasn't got any.

Seriously though does it really matter I mean both are mediocre anime adaptions. Fuck Durarara is shit compared to superior Baccano.
S1 of Drrr sold 18k on average.

There is nothing wrong. This is only a matter of cultural difference. Probably the Japanese do not get too excited about the anime "Junketsu no Maria" and preferred to stay only with the manga.

So what kind of thing you like to see on the list? How would your dream list? And quantity?

Aw, poor World Trigger. Toei got their hands on something pretty good but it's not selling very much at all.

Sweet. Maji Rabu Reboulutions sold well! And so did the other Shohari CDs. :)

Also nice to see OCD on it with pledge!!

Sigh.. best of the season ended up being the only one not ranked because it sold too little.

The sad truth ;_;

Apr 14, 2015 6:36 PM by Mayuka

Hopefully Saekano sells enough for a second season.

Better luck with Digimon Adventure Tri. I guess. :(

Not surprised about DRRR. This cour was bland (except the ending minutes).
