Dragon ball super is not looking so good...


its airing on morning time slot so its profit comes more from TV ratings (more TV ads revenue) and merchandise sales like toys for kids

YIKES for Youkoso, that hurts a lot, but other than that there are some shows that are doing well...

Princess Principal though, despite my dislike for this series, the sales are okay.

Oct 25, 7:22 PM by Wasshio

Damn, SAO Ordinal Scale dropped from 89,056 to less than 5k in just one week. Looks like everyone who was interested bought it right away. Still a huge drop.

Oct 11, 12:51 AM by Askorti

Even half that might do it for me, considering the blu rays cost around $150 a piece.

and Made in Abyss might have that Madoka Magica effect where it sells 70k on the first week...


I don't think Made in Abyss is going to have the Madoka Magica effect. It is way less popular. I am actually kind of worry if it will sell well since it's a Manga adaptation. I will take anything above 5K.

Oct 10, 4:57 PM by nbyung09

It's always nice seeing detective conan on top of the sales. Don't really care about the others.

Oct 10, 2:14 PM by Accelerator48

AXZ still reigning supreme as the top-selling TV series of Summer 2017. Of course we're still waiting on the sales for Made in Abyss and Owarimonogatari 2nd. Owarimonogatari 2nd will probably sell 30k+ as usual, and Made in Abyss might have that Madoka Magica effect where it sells 70k on the first week...

So much for Classroom of the Elite and Smartphone. I thought those types of anime were supposed to be "in" for Japan...

Kakegurui releases on the 13th of this month, so next week I'll be looking forward to how much it sold...

Because the whole bloody plot was ruined in youkoso jitsuryoku, so much so many(including me) cancelled their pre-orders.

It should have been lower honestly.

*1,202 **1,202 Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou Shugi no Kyoushitsu e (TV) Vol.1
Ouch. Welp this is what happens when you pissed off the fans of the original source material. XD

Oct 10, 12:26 PM by Greninja_170

Youkoso and Isekai Smartphone are too high on that list.

I'm glad that Princess Principal sells little bit even now.

Oct 10, 10:34 AM by Swagernator

Smartphone and Tsugumomo sales are depressing. Youkoso's are understandable... don't mess with the fans.

Oct 10, 9:22 AM by SkyLETV

17. **,621 ***,621 Tsugumomo Vol.5

I remembered reading the manga a few months ago and was like "damn, this got dark and really good", but shame we won't be able to see it get animated.


Oct 10, 8:52 AM by DarklordVor

Youkoso with disappointing sales, horikita director should have been stopped a bit.
Conan selling well and tenshi no 3p with 1.9K ( season 2 when?)

The novels sold a lot so it did its job.


A part of its job that is. While it boosted the numbers of the source material it fails to deliver in BD/DVD sales meaning the company within the production committee that planned to profit on that will most likely walk out with a loss. We have yet to see how the other income streams and with that the other 7 companies do but it's too early to say if it has done its job or not as an anime adaptation overall.

I found it weird because Youkoso Jitsu was pretty hyped and welcomed during the time it was Airing.
Smartphone likely due too much critic and the story being generic despite having alot of watchers.

Meanwhile Princess Principal that have less watchers compared both two (or three since i didnt watch Tsugumomo) had better sales summary (about 6200 copies sold according to list).


How popular an anime is in the west is pretty irrelevant to disc sales.

And kimi ni no wa is still holding on.

I steered clear of Smartphone's anime the moment I learned it was adapting the first 3 novels in only 12 episodes. As I thought the first book alone had enough content for ~10 episodes...
At least the source material got a nice sales boost, so I'm happy about that.
