Been a while since last time checking this. Wtf with Granblue Fantasy? Never once cross my mind it's even possible.

Man, these Blue Exorcist sales are depressing af.
Not the biggest fan of the franchise but the second season was nice.

I lol'd when i saw Minami Kamakura Koukou Joshi Jitensha-bu sales tho

As you people know, I always post the full list of YOI sales.

Vol1 74,605
Vol2 67,153
Vol3 61,224
Vol4 58,509
Vol5 55,751

Avg 63,448

Right now YOI is the most sold anime for 2016 and the 6th most sold anime since 2000. YOI took Nisemonogatari position.

I keep forgetting that any Anime that targets the Female Audience gets crapped on. Yuri On Ice is doing good and the Anime Boy Band is number 1 for now.

Sequel disease is strong here. Nothing but sequels. Ew

I have a feeling Granblue Fantasy will get more seasons pretty soon. Too bad about Blue Exorcist, I wish it did better.

When will UtaPri rest, the decline in sales from season to season is a bit painful to watch.

May 16, 4:14 PM by Shizucchi

Granblue still going, you better keep pumping out new seasons cygames :(

I haven't watched the 2nd season of Ao no Exorcist but its really struggling as shit here, well in terms of BDs it got 1k but the DVDs are like rather bad.

Is the problem only in the hype?


yes, look at s2 of snk for example, sequel of an anime that averaged 52k back in 2013 would be lucky to average even 8k now

the time gap hurts the sales, if ao no exorcist and snk's 2nd seasons were released sooner they could've sold much better especially snk (i know the bd is not out yet but its estimates aren't really good)

Ao no Exorcist was so boring. the 1st season was ok but 2nd season was boring and I felt like sleeping while watching it.

May 16, 6:52 AM by thepath

A depressing list but with no new releases we just have a fujoshi list on our hands. Not hating just observing.

Anyways I am glad to see the anime from more than a decade ago are getting box sets and are selling well. This is why i love the sales thread.

Why new season of the Exorcist so failed? The first was a hit.
