Another week with low sales, unless I'm missing on something, this is pretty weird.


The usual bulk of anime are released within the penultimate and last weeks of the month, so it is rare to see releases over 10K at the start and middle of the months. No idea why distributors don't spread the releases out, but that's how the market works.

Looking at the releases for December, we have the Love Live Movie on December 15th, which will sell > 100K copies, and a low/mid-tier release such as the 2nd live for Idolmaster Million Live (<= 10K copies?). The rest should be in the penultimate and last week of December as I said. I don't see any other 10K+ releases in the start and middle of December, unless I missed something?

Oooh, I see now.
Thanks for explaining. It makes more sense now.

Working? Great!

Welp those K sales suck ass compared to its first season.
Very fitting considering scenes such as this one:


The Seri fanservice is so horrid it makes me cringe. They don't treat her like that in the manga spinoffs

phoenixalia said:

the new otome game coming out etc.

Its been out for a good while and it didn't get good reviews. K most likely won't get another season probably just manga spinoffs and LNs after this.

Oh please, it's clearly due to the wide-angle lens; zooming in on what's closest to the lens. No need to overreact because you aren't attracted to women.


>implying implications

at least i'm not the one getting pissy cause someone doesn't like piss poor drawings of girls he likes. at least i can quote people properly too.


woops, dun quoted myself.

anyway, i'm actually neutral towards k overall. I just find it funny when people over-exaggerate over little drawings. I mean, an ulcer?

Nov 17, 2015 11:07 PM by Fumito

Is it just me or the sales of the 3rd vol. of Gakkou Gurashi are higher than the 1st and 2nd ones?

Here are the weekly Blu-ray & DVD rankings for November 9 - 15


*2. 2,922 **2,922 K: Return of Kings Vol.1 Limited Edition
*3. 2,664 **2,664 K: Return of Kings Vol.2 Limited Edition


Yikes…

GoHands clearly animated K with an insane budget, and these sales don't help that fact.


Again:


I don't think BD/DVD sales matter all that much for K Project. It's still really popular enough to have manga spinoffs running in many magazines, more merchandise, the new otome game coming out etc.

It's still somewhat of a sharp drop from season 1 (averaged about 8k), but given the gap between the two seasons, it was expected.

I'll add a little more: This is just the first week. With the second week and extended lists, it could add get to ~4k.

P.S Some of you are ignoring the DVD sales. They're not much, but they're important too.

I'm not even sad. I watched the first few episodes and was kind of disappointed in this season. Oh well.

Fumito said:

oh the humanity, they showed that poor defenceless woman's panties?! sarcasm aside, you would actually expect it to have more sales from the male audiences with scenes like that.

not just pretty boys, but ofc most people see it that way lol

Hmmm... K probably should be doing better. Looking at their budget...

Nov 17, 2015 7:10 AM by DeusExMavro

Can someone tell me what does partial sales mean? Is it mean the anime only sold on either bluray or dvd only and not both?

It's not the panties, but rather the way it's done.

Wait, so they didn't stop doing that shit?

It's only here and there but when it happens it's obnoxious as fuck. So it's not like they have scenes like this every 5 minutes.
K is mainly about pretty boys fighting after all.
