Sports, sports everywhere.

Summer update:
Free! s2 sells 11179/6672, total 17,869. Yikes… not so great compared to s1. Both v1s are non-event ticket, but s1v1wk1 sold 25,726, which is more than s2v1 can hope to do even lifetime now, as Free hasn’t shown signs of those huge 4k+ wk2s or really long tails of other shows (the way v1 plunged after release on Amazon implies this season will be no different). At absolute best it’s dropping 10k v1 s1v1 and will be thousands short of even the worst-selling s1 volume. Definitely a real shame given what a vastly superior season Eternal Summer is in every single way imaginable (and season one was already great).
There’s so much competition for women otaku’s sports dollars right now though. Haikyuu is still young, Kurobas s2 is only just ending next week, Dia no A mysteriously jumped from obscurity to 5k volumes, and Yowapedal has stayed a 5k show despite length. Haikyuu is definitely the most immediate competition though. I guess those yen are just in far far higher demand now than they were a year ago. Still really disappointed though, with the caveat that, uh, it’s nonetheless making a ton of money and is one of the most successful shows of the year.
Underestimations weren’t as high as s1, partly because of the Amazon version but also just not being as dominant at Animate. DVD was 31.5% and BD 62.8% underestimated compared to 51.4% and 85.0% for s1.
Oh and this means there’s like a 98% chance we can confirm SAO II will be the best-selling Summer show, as Free was its only real competition.

Aoharide v1 sells 1208/1926, total 3,134. Event ticket. Underestimated 121% on DVD and 128% on BD, pretty massive.

Rail Wars v1 sells 1388/294, total 1,682.

P4GA v1 adds 709/352, total 13,836.

Jinsei v1 adds 189 BDs, total 2,435 in wk3. Goes to show how much release timing matters! Most shows selling 1.5k first week would only have ranked one week, if they had wk2s in busy weeks. Granted we’re talking 1,593 BDs vs 2,073 BDs, big deal, but technically that’s 30%!

Spring update:
Haikyuu!! v3 sells 9500/8309, total 17,809. Event ticket drop wasn’t too bad wk1 to wk1, though we’ll have to see how the long tail does. Sort of amusing that this and Free! s2v1 had nearly identical sales. 60 unit difference.
v1 adds 302 BDs, total 34,065 in wk10.
v2 adds 436/467, total 28,505 in wk5.

Isshukan v4 sells 2435/499, total 2,934.

Gaworare v4 sells 659 BDs, DVDs do not rank. Heading for a sub-1k average even with v1 DVDs ranking, unless the last vol sees a big bump or something.

Love Live s2 v2 adds 289, total 53,770.
v3 adds 573, total 47,167. v4 next week looks poised to have a bump, due to more concert footage being included (like v2). Since this is new footage, presumably v4 and v6 will sell more like 60k.

Jojo v2 adds 193 BDs, total 13,522, up 2.59% on v1, because DVD and BD each ranked one week longer than v1.

Mekakushi v6 adds 690/714, total 6,674. Another relatively big wk2 keeps it in that weird “dropping each vol but never a huge amount any single volume but it kinda adds up” weird place. You can never get a sense of whether it’ll keep roughly this level until the end, or crater suddenly at some point, or what. It’s less than 300 behind v5 wk2, but v5 has both formats rank in wk3 which v6 is unlikely to do given the insane release list next week.

Akuma no Riddle v3 sells 799 BDs, DVDs do not rank. Sigh.

Escha to Logy v4 sells 714 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Past seasons:
Chuunibyou Ren v6 adds 225 BDs, total 6,808 in wk4, meaning it added 165 in wk3.
v7, final volume, sells 5364/770, total 6,134. Depending on wk2 sales, may only be a few hundred boost over v6 for the OVA, barely worth mentioning. Series average: 6,801. Should end at about 6,900 next week. Imploded from 15,466 s1.

Yowapedal v10 sells 2754/2470, total 5,224. Up 23% on v9wk1. This show refuses to give up that 5k average, currently 5,690 with 2 volumes to go so it’ll keep it for sure.

Dia no A v5 sells 4,905 as a DVD-only release, continuing its miracle comeback run. That’s higher than v3-4 wk1.

Saki Zenkoku-hen v7, final volume, sells 3438/302, total 3,740. Series average: 4,499 and if it can rank wk2, will pass 4.5k next week.

Kill La Kill v9, final volume, adds 341 BDs, total 13,134. Series average: 11,119.

OVAs, Movies, Boxsets etc:
Ikamusume BD Box sells 591.

Acchi Kocchi BD Box sells 524.

Oda Nobuna BD Box sells 445.

Sankarea BD Box sells 334.

Hakuouki Movie 2 adds 741/828 LEs, total 17,534.

Slam Dunk BD Box v2 adds 290, total 2,337.

    Sports, sports everywhere! xD

    Free! ES v1 did under 20k but just because its dropped doesn’t mean its bad for the series. Its still probably going to average 16k or so which is no easy feat.

    Haikyuu!! dropped a little more than I thought it would but its still doing great.

    YowaPeda is doing well. Excellent! Gimme that season 2. And a season 3, 4, 5…

    Daiya no A continues to rise with each volume after selling 1.2k for its first volume.

    Ao Haru Ride and Isshuukan hanging on, Isshuukan barely missing that 3k mark.

      Haikyuu!! dropped a little more than I thought it would but its still doing great.

      A little less than I expected actually! 20,995 v2wk1 vs 17,809 v3wk1. I thought it might be down around 15k wk1 until I saw how it was ranking against Free.

      Haikyuu is like Kurobas, though. It’s allllll about wk2. If it has a small (1.5-2k) second week, that’s a lot different from a 4k+ wk2. Granted that is compared to v2, v1 is this crazy 33k+ thing v3 doesn’t have a prayer of getting anywhere near.

      I’m guessing v3 will clear 20k, and the rest of the volumes should do pretty close to that. Average in the low 20s.

      Free! ES v1 did under 20k but just because its dropped doesn’t mean its bad for the series. Its still probably going to average 16k or so which is no easy feat.

      Yeah, it’s definitely a very very successful show. I’m just personally disappointed because this season is spectacular, the staff really pulled out all the stops and gave me everything I wanted (and I would have thought most of what the core fanbase wanted too), and it’s a shame so much of the fanbase decided to sit this one out.

      I think what’s worth noting is how Free! is doing all this as, more or less, an original series. High Speed barely existed in people’s minds before the anime. Meanwhile Haikyuu is a monstrously popular manga and also has the advantage of being the fresh new thing this year.

      Free’s other issue is that its event tickets don’t seem to be particularly hot items, compared to the huge boost Haikyuu got. I’ve never figured out why that is, considering how massively successful the music still is even for season two. Maybe they just put on really lame events?

      Anyway, we have to wait and see how v3-4 with the tickets do (probably not much boost) but v1 should hit 20k and maybe an average of… uhhhh… guessing after 1 week of 1 vol is silly, but around Kurobas s2 level (18k)? Rough drop from 29k though nothing like Chuu2koi’s implosion.

        I was expecting a little bit more, maybe 19k or so but I’m looking forward to seeing how it does in its second week.

        This season was amazing, in the last episode, I couldn’t believe that it was actually over. The anime was such a huge part of my otaku life and I still remember watching the Nico announcement broadcast with bated breath and screaming my guts out when I saw that swimming anime had actually become a series. I still feel tingles when I think about it.

        I think the show just started a bit late, in the sense, the episodes were all very good but fans were expecting something more in the early episodes. I can’t explain what but I can understand why some fans decided to sit this one out.

        Haikyuu!! is a huge manga in one of the biggest manga magazines ever, yeah. Its a bit unfair for Free! but its done well with how the second volume was having stock problems for a long time since it took so long for the second novel to rank again. But it did splendidly too.

        The event ticket thing is puzzling though. When I see them mentioned on tumblr, people are always ecstatic about it and that there were….cones involved..uh…for Makoto…um…for his merchandise. And that fans said the event was a lot of fun so I don’t know why the volumes with event tickets don’t sell much more…

  3. Exukvera says:

    Next week will be a huge battle as almost every good series from summer will make its debut here. My money is on Tokyo Ghoul, Barakamon and Hanayamata.

    • something
      something says:

      I assume your money as to what you want to sell, not what you think will sell the most, heh.

      • Exukvera says:

        On a second thought, maybe Barakamon will not make it, but HNYMT was the moe yuri show of the season (which usually sell like hotcakes) and TG caused the rare event of bringing all volumes from the manga back to the best selling list for a few weeks, which are surely good signs. Other series with good expectations include Nozaki-kun and Aldnoah.

        • something
          something says:

          “the moe yuri show of the season (which usually sell like hotcakes)”

          …on what planet? Not Earth! Literally the first show like that since K-ON! four years ago to have any shot at selling even 10k is Gochiusa, which will just barely make it at best.

  4. Natapori says:

    I’m so sad for Free! ES selling.I can’t expect anything from it now.I only know this season is major drop.I will looking forward next volume too.

    • Exukvera says:

      As for Free!, no matter how much it dropped, as long as it sells over 10k, it will surely encourage KyoAni to keep doing it. My only sigh is that they dropped all that good licensed IPs like Haruhi and FMP to dedicate themselves to original material, which surely brings them more money but leaves us craving for more. Maybe Amagi Park will make them think again.

      • something
        something says:

        I don’t see them changing. Going solo has been very good for them, both financially and in terms of allowing them to work on stuff of their own choosing, which is a perk very few animation studios have.

        They’ve got a great thing going, and little incentive to change!

  5. mk03 says:

    >Free! s2
    Much lower than expected, but still decent nonetheless.

    >Rail Wars v1 sells 1388/294, total 1,682.
    Yikes

  6. Anon says:

    >Love Live v4 next week looks poised to have a bump, unless the Stalker predictions were just a lot higher than v2-3 for no reason

    I think v4 (and v6 too) comes with a concert. 50K sounds plausible.

    • something
      something says:

      Ahh, that explains why v2 sold more than v1. They’re actually splitting the concert across three volumes, 2, 4, and 6. That’s certainly one way to boost an average…

      I assume this means v4 and v6 should sell similarly to v2, which would be mid-50s. Unless for some reason the v4 part is more coveted than the v2 part or whatever.

      Might just be that v4 has a higher wk1, but a lower wk2 (v2 sold 7.3k wk2) and it all evens out. The higher stalker point total could be more people being aware of the concert inclusion this time and getting orders in earlier.

    • hpulley says:

      Awesome concert footage on v4! If you look at s1 you’ll notice there was higher sales for volumes 2, 4 and 6 compared to 3 and 5, the other non-event ticket volumes. The difference was the concert footage while 3 and 5 came with School Idol Diary bonus booklets, obviously not as attractive a bonus compared to an hour of concert footage for this 2.5D show.

      v2’s number didn’t get as much of a bump this season I think because the other day of that concert had its own disc come out that day. People now know what songs they miss by not getting the footage from the other day on the anime Blurays. The setlists were markedly different so getting the concert disc alone leaves you missing half the songs.

      • something
        something says:

        Ah in that case 4 and 6 should sell a lot more than 2, I guess. So back to my 60k prediction (not necessarily wk1, but eventually) for those two.

        • adit says:

          for LL s2
          Can the average reach 70 K ..???

          • Ejc says:

            If we keep conservative here… should settle around 70k average.

            Vol.1: 115k
            Vol.2: 55k
            Vol.3: 50k
            Vol.4: 60k (song list is amazing, and based on the higher pts total on Stalker)
            Vol.5: 50k
            Vol.6: 60k (depends on the song list for this one)
            Vol.7: 90k
            Average: 68.6k

            Vol.1 has a good chance of hitting 120k in the yearly lists I think, but Vol.7 is quite tough to predict as the event ticket is not for an SSA concert, but for a Fan Meeting Tour around Japan. If it is as popular as the AKB48 handshaking events, and the song list of what u’s will perform at the various locations in Japan are the popular ones, then possibly even 90k is too conservative here.

  7. Anonymous says:

    Actual question: will the sheer number of new series competing with each other mean that some shows will actually sell LESS than the would have if they had been released in a less competitive week?

    • something
      something says:

      If so, I assume it impacts lower selling shows and storefront-biased shows more severely.

      If you’re major hit like Monogatari or Kuroko or Love Live, you’re not going to be affected by this. They’re going to be most buyers first or second choice show out of all the stuff coming out this week they’re interested in, so if anything gets bumped off, it won’t be them.

      Also, titles biased towards online preorders should be safer. If you’ve already had a disc preordered for weeks or months, it doesn’t matter much when it’s released, but if you’re planning to walk into a physical store and there’s 5 different titles you want, well, you’ll probably skip a few (again, the less popular titles most likely).

      In any event, cramming this many releases into one week certainly can’t help. It’s not a great idea.

      • Anonymous says:

        So in your estimation… which of the series coming out next week should be able to best weather the storm?

        • something

          I guess the big stuff I mentioned like LL, Monogatari, Kuroko. As for the online-heavy titles, it’s hard to say what will be online-heavy until we see numbers and compare to the estimates.

    Odd, happenings with sports, and people would want hq s2 and kurobas 3 in the same season, and if we assume yp would be in that season too and daiya, then well those yens.

    Will just hope Free! stays even stronger in the long run, wanted it to get a 7+ year lifetime like UtaPri so we could get elaborate wide-release things like utensils for the characters, wide-release blankets, GIFT actually great quality plushes, and more…Well vain to hope it does well just so I can have more in my large free shrine but still…

      Yeah this goes back again to Free’s handicap of being “basically anime original”. It’s more difficult to keep momentum up when the anime lacks popular source material.

      They’re doing a great job merchandising it so far – was talking to ultimatemegax and he noted KyoAni’s proceeds were up 117% and net profits (the really important number) were up 209% last year compared to on the year before.

      That’s pretty crazy, and thanks to Free more than anything else. I imagine that, despite a perhaps 10-12k drop in DVD/BD average this season, they’re still going to be absolutely killing it overall. The s2 CDs holding up well against the s1 CDs is a good sign that there’s still loads of interest in the franchise, but the DVD/BDs specifically just had too much new competition this time.

        We’ve said it before but I think more than ever in a continuing trend, the anime disc sales are not the major revenue source anymore. Anime disc sales are good and poor sales there often indicate poor sales elsewhere but they cannot be used alone to measure success or health of the industry or a company in this business.

      • primadog says:

        Those are some awfully specifc numbers. KyoAni isn’t a publically traded corporation. Where would ultimatemegax get those kind of numbers from?

        Also, privately traded corp rarely produce quarterly accounting reports. I find it hard to believe KyoAni has a fiscal year result that cover any Free 2 sales available.

      Ah, I clone previous posts to create new ones, and it doesn’t automatically sort them to the top unless I do it manually (which I forgot to this week). Fixed.

    >2014/09/24 Aldnoah Zero v1
    >2014/09/24 Barakamon v1
    Any chance of A.Z doing more than 10k and Barakamon doing more than 7k?

    • something
      something says:

      Both results are possible, but it all comes down to underestimation. Daily rankings are totally borked this week and useless for guessing, but with a 5k estimate and PROBABLY massive underestimation, I can see Aldnoah hitting 10k even if it might take a few weeks.

      Barakamon I’m a little less sure about, but 7k lifetime for v1 isn’t totally out of reach especially if the last episode goes over very well.

    >Isshukan v4 sells 2435/499, total 2,934.
    Thats a rather big drop from v3, especially if it does not rank next week.

    >Haikyuu!! v3 sells 9500/8309, total 17,809
    21k+ average here we come

  12. Masterman says:

    Free S1 seemed to have benefited from not having a lot of competition for the Fujoshi money. S2 had to compete against not just sports series like Haikyuu and Yowapedal but also series like Nozaki-kun which has a main female audience and might end up outselling Free S2. Considering that it was always going to be impossible for S2 not to have a drop from S1.

    • mk03 says:

      I thought Nozaki-kun had a mainly male or at least a mixed audience?

      • rederoin says:

        Mixed, I think. But its hard to get information on that. I suppose we just need to wait till all the volumes are out so we can look at the BD/DVD ratio.

        • something
          something says:

          It’ll be mostly BD after vol 1, but BD/DVD ratio is becoming an iffy guide these days. Extras can affect it (e.g. Tiger & Bunny), and it can range from a few DVD-only stragglers, to 50/50 (Haikyuu, Kuroshitsuji), to two thirds BD (Free! s2, Shingeki).

          Guessing Nozaki will be more like 70-75% BD, since women on their own go about half and half while men go 85%+ BD. Assume a 50/50 split in demographic and you’d expect about three quarters BD I guess.

          Really it all depends on so many factors, though! And it’s constantly changing.

      • AnimePhoenix says:

        Its hard to tell. It has a huge female fanbase but of course a male fanbase too. But which fanbase is the one which is hardcore and buys all the merchandise, BD/DVD etc.? Its hard to tell…

    Full list is up. Ranking summary… …I guess possibly tonight since I don’t have any Locodol to watch tonight. ;_;

    (Unless there are OVA rips out, sadly my BD won’t arrive until next week)

    • hpulley says:

      My Bluray IS hear, yay! But I’m still confused as the end of episode 12 has a preview blurb for episode 13… I guess that is disc 7 only then? Right now on amazon it says 50 minutes but just episode 12 which was kind of weird. Guess we know now… but MAL was unfortunately right that the TV broadcast was only 12 episodes. Bizarre, bizarre… to list episode 13 like that without so much as a, “By the way, episode 13 is Bluray only.” Heck, even Ai Mai Mi’s 12th episode had a crawl about a special Bluray episode 13 for itself…

      • hpulley says:

        I have officially left the English language behind… “My Bluray is HERE…” sigh….

        The preview at the end of 12 is for the OVA. They describe showing Awa2 Girls around town, which is what the OVA was announced as a ways back.

        Speaking of the OVA, just watched it, since the BD arrived today (cute end card too!). It was adorable. ♥ I love vol 1 OVAs, suuuuuuch a better idea than last vol OVAs. I got to watch an episode right on a Thursday like I did for all the TV episodes.

        But now it really, truly is over. ;_;

        I’m going to miss it. It’s one of the sweetest, most emotionally genuine shows I’ve seen in a while. Too damn good.

        • hpulley says:

          So disc 7 is just episode 12 plus extras then? Hmm… I guess that adds up. Guess you can tell I haven’t watched the OVA yet. Next…

          I was still listening to the album and watching the bonus DVD which is… instructional dance and Miku who is really hot in cosplay as Nanako doing the dance. The instructor does a better job of the dance but too bad she wasn’t in cosplay too.

            Oh yeah I didn’t check the on-disc extras, I ought to do that tonight.

            And yeah I hope v7 better has some nice extras considering it’s only slightly cheaper than the other volumes… oh well, more money for my Nagarekawa Girls.

            • hpulley says:

              Don’t mind supporting them AT ALL but a secret second OVA would be super awesome. It says 50 minutes. If it is live event coverage that would be OK for me too but a second OVA would be really, really good. It doesn’t seem to say yet what the other half of the 50 minutes is but it really sounds like another episode to me. Hoping, hoping, hoping…

    How do you think Zankyou no Terror will do? At least 10k?

      something says:

      Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it’s not really selling at all. Maybe at best 2k v1, assuming it’s being underestimated by Stalker. Looks like a bomb, DVD/BD-wise.

      Btw, 10k is a LOT, only a handful of shows each season sell that much.
