BDs don't matter a whole lot nowadays, however...

that doesn't negate that the sales here are pretty much stingy, especially for Hinamatsuri.

Oh gosh, these sales look so mediocre...

I feel bad for Hinamatsuri...

Massacred dude...

physical sales is dying faster in anime than in manga?


No, it's just that BD/DVD sales were always much lower than manga


i mean, statistically, jump on the peak is 2 million in circulation, now it's around 1,300 K for 10 years stright decline.. however BD look much more sad since amount of 3K breakers much lower than just 4 years ago...

let discs die, the consumers is slowly making a choice to ditch it anyway

digital videos/downloads are the future

Although I am slightly surprised by the poor sales of Tada-kun, as this show was quite generic, I also believe that Hinamatsuri deserved better. Hell, it was one of the best comedies that I've seen lately.

Guess the yuri outrage was not as bad as i thought it would be.


It's still a good and original show, no matter what the author again sank yuri ship between her main characters. So, I'm not surprised that sales are still good.

Yup. There's many different monetizations and we can't compute all of them. BD/DVD is just one of them which could or not mean something for the anime

Kek look at the dedness of anime disk sales. This is what happens when you don't adapt to the modern age as an industry.
