Show By Rock CDs aren't selling well, bad sign. Also that projected BD/DVD sales figures reeks of a potential failure by Sanrio, 2.8k is bad sales.


Show by Rock was dominating the BD/DVD rankings at the "gamers" retailer for most of the time after solicitation, but within the last few days UtaPri 3 has taken over. I've also seen it at Animate and HMV (but not as often as at gamers). So I would be inclined to think that it will be most likely underestimated by Stalker...

symbv informed me a few weeks back that Show by Rock seems to have a strong female fanbase as well... with the pictures from the recent real life events seem to confirm this view.


I hope it's underestimated, I want a second season badly but it's a bit of a concern especially since this is Sanrio's first foray into the Otaku market (which is turning out great) and it needs to succeed especially since their cash cow Jewelpet is suffering at the moment with low rankings and controversy.

Former "UC" means Universal Century, unless Sunrise mess up hard, otherwise Universal Century Gundam selling well is nothing special.

There is nothing to "lol" for, none of any people ever expect Sidonia sales can match UC Gundam series, the fact that comparing TV(Sidonia) and OVA(The Origin) series already makes no sense.

Yeah I'm not a gundam fanboy, so I meant gundam unicorn not the storyline duh :(
and with all the sidonia hype, it not selling better than the back draft is lol.

The origin is complete new OVA, not recap of any old UC series.

Besides, hype never means sales, Ping Pong only got 3k sales, but did it stop people saying it's one of best 2014 anime?

If you know nothing about the origin, or even Gundam, i recommend you stop use it as weapon to attack other shows, or the only one people have to "lol", is yourself(look up #31).

What's the "lol" for? UC Gundam usually sell extremely well, like all Gundam UC volumes sold over 120k BD+DVD

"lol" because the backdraft destroyed sidonia, let alone the main sales.
