Don't know what you mean by confirming, but I will give my translation if it.

4,212 (Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry)

3,209 (Shinmai Maou no Testament BURST)

1,024 (Heavy Object)

*,989 (Gakusen Toshi Asterisk)

*,730 (Aria the Scarlet Ammo AA)

*,647 (Taimadō Gakuen 35 Shiken Shōtai)

Don't know if those are the actual sales number or not but they seem slightly inaccurate. Is Oricon your source or did you find them elsewhere?

Great news. All I need is this.

Love Live! is #1 again for the 2nd year in a row in the COSPA (survey) cosplay sales ranking. Not surprising, considering 43.4% of the Love Live! fanbase is female (30.5% are of age 15 to 19). Shingeki no Kyojin's fanbase is 48.1% female (11.9% are of age 15 to 19). For the other results, it seems to be from recently (within the last few years) aired anime... except for Hatsune Miku who has always been a popular cosplay amongst females.

*1 Love Live!
*2 Shingeki no Kyojin
*3 Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka??
*4 Hello!! Kiniro Mosaic
*5 Hibike! Euphonium
*6 Kantai Collection -KanColle-
*7 Hatsune Miku
*8 Gakkou Gurashi!
*9 Fate/stay night
10 Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata

It was only half the normal price because it has 1 instead of 3 episodes.

There's plenty of shows that have full price first volumes that only have one episode, the duration has nothing to do with it nor does it change the fact that the price was half..

No, that is acteally standard for 1 ep discs.


Not to mention that the amazon ranking/stalker estimate of v2 is barely showing any change from v1.

Goddamit Overlord nice.Although I'm more hyped for the Novels that are being released with the Vols or whatever.

That also means no Vol 10 for a few months so screw that:(

all the crap battle harems seem to be flopping, good, maybe studios will make less of them (i can only hope)


Rakudai isn't harem, Asterisk is selling above comparable "battle harem" shows from previous years/seasons, and Taimadou is the only one flopping, probably because of it being rushed heavily.

I think I know more then you do. Since there are many show made, a lot of them sold very few units, which would not have happened if there weren't so many shows competing for the exact same market.

Think of it this way: otaku that wanted to buy a battle harem this season could choose between three of them. Maybe if there was only one battle harem, it could have potentially gotten all the buyers. I know it's not that simple, but instead of 3 series doing poor-->average, we could have had one that did great.


You're forgetting something important: animes are made, in most cases, to promote some other material, original or not (manga, light novel, live action movie, game, music, toys, and even travel to a particular region) .

In many cases, even selling well in BD / DVD, if the original material does not have an expected increase in sales, the anime will rarely win a sequel. But if on the other hand he sell some (BD / DVD), and the original draft is a large increase in sales, anime fulfilled its function.

Decrease the amount of animes every season, for producers and editors, also means less exposure (advertising) of their titles. And what most of them want is that there is an increase in sales of original material, as soon as possible (first few volumes) and the numbers remain stable until the end of the publication.

damn so One Punch Man did not hit the 10K sales mark, but still the 8K sales is still a success and the manga sales have a huge boost anyway which is more important

the cut off being 3,941 for BDs just shows how great of a week this is
granted u know nothing about sales i wont get into it

I think I know more then you do. Since there are many show made, a lot of them sold very few units, which would not have happened if there weren't so many shows competing for the exact same market.

Think of it this way: otaku that wanted to buy a battle harem this season could choose between three of them. Maybe if there was only one battle harem, it could have potentially gotten all the buyers. I know it's not that simple, but instead of 3 series doing poor-->average, we could have had one that did great.


Nah, moodie is right, you have no concept of the anime market if you think 3k+ sales for one volume is bad these days. On average, more than ~3.5k disc sales for one volume of a 12 episode cour (assuming 2 episodes per volume) is profitable. Unless it is like UBW budget levels, most anime studios would be content with that. Even if you sell less than that weekly, like 70% of anime eventually profit. But 3.5k+ sales per volume is easily enough for a reasonably budgeted show to profit.

You're also failing to realize that for Rakudai and other late-released shows (not sure about Asterisk and Antimagic), the Oricon list this week only seems to be including Amazon Japan sales, as Rakudai's sales match the predicted Stalker points almost exactly (which are largely based on Amazon Japan pre-orders). So they likely aren't including the brick and mortar sales it sold out at, or CDJapan and Amiami, or the restock, etc due to having only a couple days to grab data. Not only that, but that's 3.2k Amazon sales in only 3 days, not even a full week, while short-stocked. In all likelihood, Rakudai probably pushed more than 4k disc sales in that first 3 days, and could likely get above ~5k discs by the end of its first week this Friday. If it continues to sell reasonably well, Silver Link will have more than turned a profit on it. Asterisk isn't doing great, but it will probably sell enough to turn a profit as well (though I haven't been following it so I'm not sure).

You're insane if you think studios just pump out material without intent to profit.
