Newest entry into the 10k+ list is Kill La Kill, due to being at about 11k now with only two volumes left and fairly consistent sales. It’s the 117th show to make it, Studio Trigger’s first, Aniplex’s 37th, and 2013’s 12th and final series to reach the milestone.
This puts 2013 in 3rd for number of 10k series, behind 2008’s 13 and 2011’s 15. But 2009, 2010, and 2012 are all right behind at 11 each so it’s been pretty consistent for six years now.
2014 only has 1 so far but spring should have 3 locks (LL, HQ, Jojo) and Summer at least 2 (Free, SAO). That brings us to 6 guaranteed unless Jojo suddenly gets much less storefront heavy which I doubt. Fall is too early to call but I can’t imagine Fate selling less than 10k which gives us 7 very safe bets.
That’s just the obvious ones, there are a number of other candidates, though 11 could prove a stretch. Some of the candidates worth mentioning are G Reco, P4GA, Aldnoah, Kancolle, and Nanatsu. We need to keep an eye on what else gets announced for Fall.
