Glad to see Hot Blooded Orphans sales drop. (Idk why people still even defend this show in here, while it trashed in Japan)

Sorry to disappoint you but the sales haven't dropped. The average is still above 9k.

But this is a serious problem, SMC sales are terrible :'( I pray that if the sales continue to drop it doesn't stop Toei from making the dream arc I really want it animated.


You don't need to worry, because the franchise is selling amazingly for Toei. Doing at least 659 Million yen from April 2015 to March 2016(For comparison, this is basically half of the money Bones earned last year) .


Oh god really that's good news for me. Thanks for getting my hopes up again though I am curious what if this season doesn't sell as well as the last one would Toei still consider Adapting the dream arc?

Jul 6, 2016 11:24 PM by -Janet

Really glad Ushio to Tora sold at least 2k. Anime is a little past it's prime (monster of the week shows aren't received well nowadays) but it has to be my AOTS for spring 2016 so I'm happy with this week's chart.

Jul 6, 2016 4:57 PM by Ahoy_NATO

Glad Monogatari series is still selling well.

Now to pray for Okitegami adaptation...

The second week helps put Re:Zero in a pretty good spot. 8k is pretty nice.

Still kind of amazes me how battle shounen sells. I'd think people would like to buy those up to rewatch big moments. At least combined the BD/DVD sales aren't bad for BnHA. Though just looking at the BDs alone had me concerned for it.

Jul 5, 2016 11:53 PM by FlareKnight

Whoa. Surprised BnHA could see that much. I'm worried it won't sell much seeing the TV ratings, though glad I'm proven wrong ;)

It was mostly because of the fujoshis, stalker points are always wrong when we talk about shows that fujoshis like(they always sell more than the previsions)


Not all female fans are fujoshi though. Stop grouping them as such.

You're right though, that Stalker always seems to struggle with anime that have a significant female fan following, but it is more generally storefront heavy titles rather than just female fans. There are some anime that don't have a significant female following and yet end up underestimated by Stalker, due to their stronger storefront performance compared to Amazon JP.

We have anime that have an almost equal male to female fan ratio, such as Shingeki no Kyojin, Love Live!, etc, and they were also underestimated by Stalker.

Never underestimate our power! Female fans rules!

11. *1,415 **8,559 Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! Vol.4 Limited Edition

Sasuga Deen... they keep on saving anime industry. Can't wait to see how season 2 will do in sales.

8,049 Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu

This is not bad for a mystery/despair/dark anime like Re:Zero

Jul 5, 2016 8:18 PM by DarklordVor

Good to see Re Zero and Stray Dogs selling well, two of my favourite shows from last season. Hopefully Re Zero will get a second season after this one finishes.

Jul 5, 2016 2:37 PM by fullmetal212

ReZero getting the anime boost still nice.

Also glad to see Koyomimonogatari at the top this week.

Jul 5, 2016 2:01 PM by Stark700

Flying Witch is popular?

Sansha Sanyou should've sold more..


It's an anime that aired in the wrong era, it could've sold well if it aired between 2003 and 2007, I could see it's poor sales from the start as it cannot stand out in the 2010's with the rest of the moe and MTK adaptations.

Not really surprised that Koyomimonogatari topped the chart. I can't remember the user, but someone on the BD/DVD ranking thread said a while ago it won't sell more than 5k.

Lol ppl under estimate the marketing of Gatari. Even if its on a decline, which is natural, it still has an immense fanbase. Gatari partners up with other products, they had their own expo with madoka and ect. that i cant think of the top of my head atm.

Basically Gatari wouldnt take a hit that big. Although I was worried if would be doing 15k or something. But this is on track with owarimonogatari.

Good for Re Zero. Still no 10k yet for Spring 2016?


Macross Delta has the biggest chance for a 10K average I think, but I can't believe that Spring is actually going to do worse than Winter since Winter has KonoSuba and Koiyomimonogatari as a possible 10K and a guaranteed 10K respectively.

I have no idea how Summer is going to fair, because the only guaranteed 10K is Love Live! SunShine right now. Fall has UtaPri S4, and I also have no idea how the other titles will fair, so 2016 has been looking very bleak compared to previous years.

Most of the female fans who bought the bluray of Stray Dogs are fujoshis, and i don't see the problem stating this, and i don't think i said that all of them are..

If it was something like Ensemble Starts or Utapri, but we are talking about stray dogs, where 3/4 of japonese fanarts are yaoi pairing.

Jul 5, 2016 9:23 AM by lezerman

I'm interested to see how well Natsume Yuujinchou S5 sells in Fall. It's a very consistent series in terms of sales but I don't know how much the wait between season 4 and 5 affects the sales.

Jul 5, 2016 9:17 AM by Raina-

It's alright, hope streaming pushes it for more seasons.

*6. *2,209 **2,209 Sansha Sanyou Vol.1
11. **,469 ***,469 Sansha Sanyou Vol.1

S3? it will be a good time since Hundred refrreshed everyone ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
14. *1,350 **1,350 IS: Infinite Stratos 2 Blu-ray BOX

What about Joker game?

I didn't like the show that much but I'm interested if an anime with an adult demographic is at all viable economically these days.


It doesn't release until the end of September.
