And yet again top10 with nothing worthy and low sales. :/

Girls und Panzer Movie moves from 20th to 18th after its 3rd weekend. Its 4th weekend is likely going to be bigger than its 3rd weekend since film strips will be given out, so it is possible it will be above the Toaru Majutsu no Index Movie as of its 4th weekend.

The High☆Speed! -Free! Starting Days!- Movie opened with ¥95,546,400 from 67,829 attendees from Dec 5th~6th. It is hard to tell where it will end up over time, but with a lower than expected opening, I think it could possibly settle around the Yowamushi Pedal Movie level, depending on how much it grosses over its 2nd week (Dec 7th~13th).

Congratulations to Gundam and Strike the Blood.

I see overlord is still doing amazing.
Fingers crossed on that S2 announcement.

Which is a shame cause some awesome stuff happens in the manga after the anime ends.

Was expecting 50K+ for Gundam Origin. But it's alright I guess.


It did sell above 50K (look at the whole list)... but Gundam ORIGIN has dropped in first week sales (especially on BD) compared to Vol.1. It is still selling very well though.

○機動戦士ガンダム THE ORIGIN 【全4巻】

03巻 **,***(**,***) **,***(**,***) **,***(**,***) **.**.**
04巻 **,***(**,***) **,***(**,***) **,***(**,***) **.**.**


I believe Gundam The Origin came out on Thursday as opposed to the usual Wednesday so it's counting a days less worth of sales. Might account for at least part of the discrepancy. Still way over estimated by as much as 20K but that seems to happen to Gundam a lot lately, it's really bizarre.

Blu Ray + DVD
10,643 10,643 Strike the Blood: Valkyria no Oukoku-hen Vol.1 Limited Edition
*5,512 *5,512 High School DxD BorN Vol.4

Strike the Blood sales very impressive, much better than expected which is fab to see. The release isn't that much cheaper than the series releases either. Gives hope of future anime be it OVAs or another series when enough material.

DxD BorN continues to drop and expecting a bigger drop for last 2 volumes which is a shame. On course for a 6k average (just) though which is better than I feared. My copy just shipped yesterday.

I liked the change (not as much as LN obviously) but I do wish they didn't change anything as sales would be 1-3k more I reckon. Oh well, hope for S4 isn't dead as DxD is a merch machine.

Wow....Strike the Blood? Quite surprising

Nice to see Yuyushiki in that list. I want that blu-ray box. <3
I bought the singles when they came out so I don't need the box but the sales are great to see. And in fact it is out of stock at the moment so perhaps there will even be some more sales next week with it back in stock on the 4th. S2 likely never but... we can dream.

Strike the Blood too. So, they said no S2, just a couple of OVAs. Maybe they'll consider doing some more anime after all, if not a full season then more OVAs at least. Again, we can hope and dream.

MOREEE!!!
The thirst is too much :'(

*2. *8,961 *8,961 Overlord Vol.3
12. *1,309 *1,309 Overlord Vol.3

They are going all out with this.
It has lottery tickets of the sort and also comes with voice drama CD nr 2 about hamsuke.

anyone know when is the release date of One Punch Man discs?

Volume 1 will be released on December 24th, or Christmas Eve.

It'd be nice if Oregairu got a third season ...

It will. Expect an announcement within the next three months.


and why are you so sure? There is no source material left for another season at all.

OT : another 10k week 1 for overlord. No drop at all from vol 2.

Yes it did looking at the volume by volume sales below. Note that the DVD/BD wiki doesn't take the Oricon extended rankings into account though, so i've added the sales according to that ranking in square brackets. So, the TV Anime version averaged 6,208 copies/volume.

It's pretty good. Better than the TV series. Sayaka <3
That doesn't really have anything to do with it. 8.6k sales first week for an OVA is huge. And it's not like we're talking about the most famous series in the world either
