What the hell is up with Noragami being so low.


The Stalker sales projections are supposed to be for first week sales, so if we look at how Season 1 sold... Vol.6 sold 2,531 in the first week. So how is 2,679 low for Noragami?

By the way, I used the lowest selling volume because that's an indication of how many people stuck around to buy the whole series, and the least likely to have any sales boosting bonuses.

Please... don't make Overlord S2, PLEASE! Do we really need that kind of cringe in our lives again?! Its basically 13 episodes of ''who can give the best verbal blowjob to a cardboard MC''.

You're not the target audience, and anime producers don't care what you think.


BTFO

They will make a S2 if the publisher feels like the sale boost is worth it. Hopefully this time Madhouse (assuming they handle it again) actually puts effort.

The study is the one with the decision to make more than one season. They are the ones with a proposal to the publisher, and gets the license. Danmachi and Overlord has bad adaptations. Madhouse not does second seasons five years ago.

And? Does it mean that I'm not allowed to express my opinion? Isn't that's the whole point of a discussion? Nobody's opinion actually matters, their wallet size does.

By your logic MAL forums shouldn't even exist, only a microscopic minority of western anime fans have ever spent a penny on anime, so whats the point? It's not like anyone's opinion here matters at all really.

I'll PM Kineta with your spectacular statement and ask to delete forums, since, according to you they serve no practical use whatsoever.


I've never gotten that mentality myself, it's kind of worrisome that people even think that way too. I've been told by a forum user before (not going to name names but they've posted in this thread already) that my opinion doesn't matter because I've never spent money on overpriced R2 Blu-Rays and just maintain a Crunchyroll and Netflix account. Like cool I'm supposed to buy something I can't even really play on a regular player that costs way too much money and may not even come with subtitles or anything I say is completely irrelevant so yeah really might as well delete the forums if that's the case and that's what it takes for sure. The irony is that I'm regularly the one that gets called an elitist these days yet I'd never argue for something like that which is highly so.

Fullmetal89 said:
Overlord still doing pretty well ! Season 2 hype (probably not because Madhouse).

Surprised the Code Geass movies are doing so well. I've only watched the first one and I liked it. Hopefully this means more from the franchise in the future.


It already did well enough to get an expansion from 4 to 5 parts.

That 'facade' thing is used for like 3 or 4 one line jokes, and then forgotten for the rest of the series.

Such depth, very drama, wow.
"Forgotten for the rest of the series"
You do realize that Overlord is not a 13-episodes completed story, right? He has to act his part out in order to instill fear and conquer his world, to learn of the unknown, etc.

"one line joke"
Either you don't know what a joke is, or you're trying to be funny.

"Such depth, very drama, wow."
I'd appreciate if you don't throw your memes onto me. Nobody has ever said that Overlord has a lot of layers of depth to it, it doesn't mean that it's flat as cardboard tho.

I can see that Overlord is not your thing, and how you would just generalize everything that has harem/ecchi/MMORPG element/OP mc/moe, and just about every generic all-season hate. There is no discussion to be made in the first place (which I don't think is what you're seeking for), since you're already biased to one side.

well, im happy that shigatsu been selling very consistently ^^

Also, please tell me about those 'heartfelt phrases' and does he tell them before or after relying on another case of deus ex machina item/spell to win?

P.S. lol shop items... how is it even possible to take that BS with a serious face?

Before (the albedo scene), and that was the first time he showed his true self and didn't need to put on an act.

Those are standard stuff in mmorpgs, and we knew he had a ton of them in ep 3, so no dues x machina or asspull.

About your ''sarcasm''

Dude, sarcasm would only work IF i claimed to be non-biased. I will make a simplified version of your sarcasm, maybe you will understand anything after that.

Sarcasm is reactional, and you just reacted to absolutely nothing, while assuming statements from me which I never actually made.

Your statement about overlord is more than enough to see your bias.
No substance and sounds like typical bandwagon hate comments, what even was the purpose of that comment? did you even watch the show properly or is the pacing too much or you?

Bias is just another throw away meaningless word that casuals like to use to make their opinions sound more intelligent. Other phrases you might like:

''objectively good/bad''
''it's style over substance''

If you don't understand that we all have opinions (or a bias, whatever floats your boat) which are all subjective and based on our taste and personality, discussion isn't possible.

Also, please tell me about those 'heartfelt phrases' and does he tell them before or after relying on another case of deus ex machina item/spell to win?

About your ''sarcasm''

Dude, sarcasm would only work IF i claimed to be non-biased. I will make a simplified version of your sarcasm, maybe you will understand anything after that.

Correct sarcasm:
ME: I'm an objective anime critic (followed by subjective opinion)
YOU: Wow, you're such an unbiased critic!

(you see- statement followed by SUPPOSED agreement)


Your sarcasm:
Me: nothing about bias
You: wow, you're such unbiased critic!
(So? I never claimed otherwise.)

Sarcasm is reactional, and you just reacted to absolutely nothing, while assuming statements from me which I never actually made.

That's really cool,..even though DanMachi had bigger LN boost..they really should do a sequel for Overlord to make the LN sales increase even more..:3

Danmachi's boost isn't bigger. And second seasons donot generally create big boosts if at all.

The game+anime bundle of God Eater sold 16k. I doubt volume 2 will reach even half of that, though.

3,5k ish seems just about right doesn't it? These magic high light novels don't tend to sell much higher numbers than that. Mahouka being the only exception I can think of

This is based on Amazon orders and it's usually correct if most people buy from Amazon. But it looks like a lot of people are buying Rakudai BD/DVD from other stores because they will get an extra gift (authographs from main cast) if buying from selected stores.

Also weren't the numbers rising since EP4?
