Winter update:
Konosuba v1 sells 8559/957, total 9,516. 16% under/39.2% overestimated. As was entirely expected, the only unambiguous hit of the Winter bunch this week. Easy 10k (12k?) v1 incoming although 10k average is still questionable and would require very very consistent sales. Nonetheless, a lock for #2 behind Koyomimonogatari.

Gate s2 v2 sells 3657/723, total 4,380. 1.6% under/12.5% overestimated. Down somewhat from the lowest selling s1 volume so probably looking at closer to a 5k average this time, if it gets a good wk2 and maintains the extreme vol to vol consistency of s1.

Prince of Stride v1 sells 1673/2338, total 4,011. 61.8% under/1.4% overestimated. Event ticket. So this one will crack 5k v1 then probably drop heavily, averaging maybe 4k.

Bokumachi v1 sells 2644/398, total 3,042. DVDs from extended. 50.7%/104.1% underestimated. That sounds huge, but it’s because Stalker was treating it as a “high price item” even tho it was barely over that threshold and it accumulated points much more slowly. I had a feeling it could be heavily underestimated despite not having amazing non-Amazon rankings.

Shirayuki-hime s2 v1 sells 1219/1021, total 2,240 DVDs, BDs in the full ranking. 13.1% under/22.9% overestimated.

Norn9 v1 sells 916/999, total 1,915. 156.6%/27.9% underestimated.

Bahamut v1 sells 1426/465, total 1,891. DVDs from extended. 8.1% under/11.4% overestimated.

Active Raid v1 sells 1692/178, total 1,870. DVDs from extended. 0.5% under/38% overestimated.

AnsaKyou s2 v1 sells 657/908, total 1,565. 8.9%/30.6% overestimated.

Schwarzesmarken v1 sells 1,403 as a BD-only release. 15.8% overestimated.

Dimension W v1 sells 1,046 as a BD-only release. 34.2% overestimated.

Haruchika v1 sells 506/282, total 788. DVDs from extended. 12.8% over/6.4% underestimated.

Shokomeza v1 sells 383 BDs, DVDs do not rank. BDs from extended. 63% overestimated.

Luck & Logic v1 sells 300 as a BD-only release. BDs from extended. 43.1% overestimated.

Hakone-chan sells 260 BDs, DVDs do not rank. BDs from extended. 43.6% overestimated.

Grimgar v1 adds 900 BDs, total 5,135.

Drrr x2 Ketsu v2 sells 1473/1101, total 2,574.

Rakugo v2 sells 1232/255, total 1,487. DVDs from extended.

Vol 1s unranked in either format, even in extended rankings:
2016/03/23 Nurse Witch Komugi-chan R v1
2016/03/23 Reikenzan: Hoshikuzu-tachi no Utage v1

Fall update:
Hokuto no Ken Ichigo Aji sells 4,908. 51% overestimated. I had a feeling it was Amazon biased, but wow that’s incredibly overestimated. Okay, no 16th 10k in 2015, we’re still stuck with 15 as the cap for a year.

Diabolik Lovers s2 v1 sells 1,624. 29.2% underestimated. DVD-only release (there’s an RE which might make the extended rankings).

Osomatsu-san v3 sells 22342/25779, total 48,121. Another sharp drop, but entirely expected. No event ticket this volume, but still on track for ~55k.
v1 adds 486/974, total 108,392. 110k looking very possible!
v2 adds 622/1103, total 79,102. Aiming for 80k.

Owarimonogatari v4 sells 19987/2590, total 22,577.

One Punch Man v4 sells 5024/2006, total 7,030.

G Tekketsu v4 sells 6021/701, total 6,722.

Fafner Exodus s2 v4 sells 4828/652, total 5,480.

Shinmai Maou s2 v4 sells 2160/636, total 2,796.

Rakudai Kishi v4 sells 2109/463, total 2,572. DVDs from extended.

Lupin Part IV v4 sells 1698/604, total 2,302.

Valkyrie Drive v4 sells 1584/384, total 1,968. DVDs from extended.

Asterisk v4 sells 1502/426, total 1,928. DVDs from extended.

Noragami s2 v3 sells 805/589, total 1,394.

Heavy Object v4 sells 1070/230, total 1,300. DVDs from extended.241

Aria AA v4 sells 886 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Conrevo v3 sells 507 as a BD-only release.

Haikyuu s2 v3 adds 1081/958, total 13,368.

 
Past seasons:
Gintama° v9 sells 2400/2290, total 4,690.

God Eater v6 sells 739 standalone BDs, 3,615 Offshot bundles, total 4,354. From Famitsu again, this never ranks on Media Create.

SoreSeiyuu v7, final volume, sells 1103/178, total 1,281, DVDs from extended. Series average: 1,135.

 
OVAs, Movies, Boxsets etc:
Aria the Natural BD Box sells 13,102. It stayed closer to the Animation than I expected, which is great. Due to being two cour and higher MSRP, it jumps straight to #16 in the ranking by gross, at ¥497m. If Origination outdoes the first season Aria could be looking to rack up almost ¥1.5bn across its BD box releases.

Locodol OVA sells 1878/241, total 2,119. DVDs from extended. Was hoping it’d be at least 2k wk1 BDs like the lowest TV volume but… sigh. Really want that second OVA to come out soon, maybe CR will get it again.

Garupan OVA adds 481 BDs, total 57,961.
Re-re-release v1 adds 613, total 7,608. Re-re-release average: 5,883. Original plus re-release average: 42,169.

    If PoSA can manage at least 1.5k per volume after volume 2, I’ll be happy.

    And Norn9, I have one thing to say to you: well deserved sales. Serves Otomate right for ruining that title.

    2016/03/23 Saijaku Muhai no Bahamut v1
    2016/03/25 Dimension W v1
    2016/03/25 Schwarzesmarken v1

    kinda surprised not to see bahamut on the list since its a Action, Ecchi, Fantasy, Harem, Romance, School, Supernatural genre i thought jpn ppl dig into this quite hard and sell usualy pretty good and also the anime wasnt that bad for what i saw
    the same goes for dimenson i srsly expected better from it :/
    as for schwarzesmarken i also expected more since its based of muv-luv series thought that the fanbase for it would be all over it and in my opinion its one of thoose really good dark mecha animes
    Overall yeh as ppl were already saying around except for konosuba & koyo the rest is selling really poorly

    For Fall OPM seems like had a nice drop too v1 v2 were pretty much around 10k as i remember and now its 7k might go to 8k~ but still the drop is bigger then at Overlord yeh iam comparing this 2 since they were both popular in their respected seasons and both made by madhouse^^

      “kinda surprised not to see bahamut on the list since its a Action, Ecchi, Fantasy, Harem, Romance, School, Supernatural genre i thought jpn ppl dig into this quite hard and sell usualy pretty good and also the anime wasnt that bad for what i saw”

      Some of them sell, but there’s also so many of them, and the number of hits in any given season is so low (especially this season), that a lot of them don’t make any splash. There are many more magic school-age fantasy LNs that sell poorly than sell well, so this is par for the course really.

      “For Fall OPM seems like had a nice drop too v1 v2 were pretty much around 10k as i remember and now its 7k might go to 8k~ ”

      I’m a little curious about the OPM drop too (it’s not big, but it’s noticeable), but I think sales for ongoing series were somewhat suppressed across the board this week. When many series drop a little more than is usual, that often but not always is a sign that the next week’s sales will be a little higher across the board than usual. Not huge amounts, maybe a couple hundred discs here and there. So it might pick up a better wk2 than expected. v3wk2 was 632, maybe v4wk2 will be closer to 1,000? Ditto for a couple other series.

      • BlackPoint says:

        Yeah but when i remember that animes like Infiniti stratos which was selling like 10k makes me wonder why such a difference cuz i honestly still that this ones that came out lately were abit better, or well rakudai for me was a top when it comes to that genre and makes me really sad when i see that its only selling a average of 3k while ye the rest is doin even worse. But yeh as you said there are many of such LNs lately that coming out and we pretty much get atleast that 1 typical harem, romance etc genre anime each season so might be the reason why ppl arent into it that much.
        About OPM uhm yeh it might be the reason since lots of winter animes came out will have to wait and see how it does at next week :)

        • something something says:

          I don’t think there’s any easy answer to why some shows do very well and other potentially similar shows do not. It’s a complicated combination of timing, fandom’s general mood, ability to transfer the source material’s popularity to anime, and competition. You have to scratch an itch that most people didn’t know they even had and suddenly your show might explode.

          Why does Utapri so monumentally crush all other boy idol shows? How did Garupan become such a massive phenomenon? I have no idea, it just happens, for many, many, many interconnected reasons.

          • hpulley says:

            Bahamut is an Infinite Stratus clone. Symbv was explaining to me that the author admits as much. His earlier works barely sold, only got 2-3 novels before they were canned. This IS clone sold much better than his previous work but not as much as IS obviously. Bahamut the anime started out pretty well, looked like it was a bit different than your run of the mill light novel but it degenerated into a fairly generic wearable-mecha harem anime by the end with the girls even joking to themselves about his harem as they fawned over him. I don’t think it got much if any light novel boost either, certainly nothing like KonoSuba or even GrimGar. In the end its sales are looking like most of those series in this genre, lucky to get 3K. IS is the exception to the rule and explaining why it gets 5-10x the sales than other similar series is very difficult and often comes down to very subtle differences in the characters and character designs whether or not the audience becomes attached to them. Bahamut suffers quite a bit from the “next girl” syndrome where the audience becomes attached to one character but the story moves on to another one and puts the favorite on the back burner. Angry fans can burn their books over the wrong girl getting the focus, especially late in the series.

            The mysteries of what sells well and what does not will probably never be answered as there are fickle fans doing the buying.

            • BlackPoint says:

              yeh bahamut is pretty much a total clone of IS but well i personnaly liked the characters more at bahamut since at IS we got that dense MC due which there is simply no progress and makes it sometimes a real pain in the ass to even watch it while at bahamut the MC is lets say abit more open ye he is shy etc but not dense he knows where he stands and pretty much holds back due being a prince from previous kingdom etc and then we got also Krulcifer a girl which we dont see often a simply more aggressive girl that if Lux wanted we could pretty much have a hentai by the end of the series :P and yeh bahamut kinda has that 1 girl arc and simply moves from one to another but i think thats just kinda at start to introduce all the girls and probably more good stuff happens later on in the LN which the anime will never see^^
              Anyway as ya both said there are sometimes just some unknown reasons why some shows do better then others or jpn ppl just bein jpn ppl with their bit weird tastes sometimes :D and also most of this LN are unknown which probably sell only a few thousands of pieces atleast that was the case at rakudai as i recall and after the anime it was selling like 5x more and had quite the success for the LN boost.
              Also for konosuba probably nobody expected when the winter season started that it would sell that good all the talk was about grimgar and boku ^^ Think once studio DEEN saw that the LN got a really huge boost, as i saw its selling really damn good as much as some really popular series and also now the BD-DVD they just went and grabbed the chance and will make a 2nd season to earn some extra money for future projects. Cuz yeh sometimes i just dont get why they stop making more season even for IS which both s1 and s2 were selling so damn good it really surprises me that they wont go and try make a 3rd etc…

              • something something says:

                Kadokawa would be driving the production of the second season. The publish the DVD/BDs and the original novels, so it’s totally their call. Deen is just the contracted studio, who will get paid to produce the animation but that’s about it.

                • BlackPoint says:

                  hmmm oky cuz studio DEEN seems to be lately quite busy with lots of animes so i thought since konosuba doing so good they r trying to get some more money out of it while its so popular^^

                  • something something says:

                    Studio Deen is a fairly prolific studio, and they often get called on to do adaptations of lower profile shows and/or shows that aren’t expected to sell many discs. They’re probably seen as a reliable choice for production committees to contract out to. They animate quite a lot of shows aimed at majority female fanbases (a lot of shoujo and BL and otoge) as well. They were fairly quiet in 2015 though, probably because they did Jewel Pet which ran for three cour and took up most of the year.

                    I also just realized that they did Rakugo too, so they animated the only two shows I watched this season.

                    • BlackPoint says:

                      Aha but well it seems like they are trying diferent stuff now too with konosuba and reikenzan this 2 are bit different genre and also about studio DEEN ppl say that its abit cheaper since their animation isnt the best might be the reason why the get more animes and perhaps dont need to worry that much about the sells, for example for this spring they got 3animes and at winter they even had 4animes and for summer they got already atleast 1 but it wouldnt wonder me if they would get 1 or 2 more for the summer aswell.

                    • Jim says:

                      LOL. Yeah, this season was weird; my three favorite shows that I watched were actually two Deen shows (Rakugo and Konosuba) and a Gonzo show (Aokana). I feel like I took the way-back machine to 2006 or something.

                    • fourteenwings says:

                      “Why does Utapri so monumentally crush all other boy idol shows?” First-to-market? High-profile, already established cast? Based on a super popular existing property?

                      Honestly though I’m a bit sad that it is still so popular because Revolutions perfected the art of slogging through plots without proper closure just so we could get to the insert song.

                      As for DEEN, they’re “animating” Rilu Rilu Fairilu this year as the replacement for Jewelpet but it doesn’t seem like it’s an even slightly taxing work for them.

            • Hahalollawl says:

              lol, for some reason I found the idea of fans burning their books over a girl not getting enough screen time funny…Still no Cecilia?! BURN!

              Yeah in a series like IS, I think it has a lot to do with how much people like particular characters. Although to be fair, that could apply to a lot of shows in general at least for me, regardless of genre. Once in a while I might see a show with an interesting story and characters like SSY, but even if I don’t get that, a show like Campione or Asterisk War with some interesting characters (and maybe not so great story) can be entertaining. So I guess I get the interest to some extent.

            • Anonymous says:

              There is no mystery in this according to me.if you look after 2012 the ecchi animes are declining and rightly so because 90% of them are copies of previously made animes.Few like to lore ru dxd stood because they were unique but now they also don’t attract people.People now tend to spend money on good animes like monogatari.Ecchi fans can simply watch the animes online why waste money on stuff being seen previously.

              • BlackPoint says:

                well TLR and HS DxD are still selling good with their last seasons and doesnt make much sense to stop making somethin that still sells instead of trying some new ecchi which might sell half or even less of thoose 2

                • something something says:

                  You have to look at the sales trajectory though. TLRD 2 for example is down by half from season one, so if it kept dropping it wouldn’t be financially sensible anymore. A third season is also unlikely to bring a lot of new fans into the franchise to buy manga and figures and such, so the incentive is lessened even more.

                  Doesn’t mean it can’t happen, but diminishing returns kick in pretty hard.

                    Yes i think there should not be more seasons of TLD and DXD because they still did well if not good in terms of sales compared to their high standards.Every new ecchi anime will perform like this i am sure because there is nothing else left to show but same stuff.I don’t know why people want to make such animes if they are destined to flop from now on and don’t increase manga/LN sales.Bahamut itself failed which makes me very happy and it didn’t even increase the LN sales.

                      There are new fans every day, people who haven’t seen a hundred of these stories already. What’s old and busted for one person is someone else’s first anime.

                      Harem/fantasy/fanservice light novel adaptations will continue to be made, most will continue to sell poorly, and some will do well. Much like any genre, that.

            UtaPri is so popular because of the male seiyuu cast and the residue fans from its PS Vita fanbase. No other male idol anime really compares, except the upcoming Ensemble Stars, which also has a very popular cast of male seiyuu too.

            GaruPan mainly became massive because of its very accurate representation of how tanks move and sound like in real life, and the accurate presentation of associated tank warefare facts, which has reverberated very well among military otaku. Without this additional group of buyers, GaruPan would not be as big.

            • something something says:

              I don’t necessarily disagree, but this and the other replies giving reasons are all easy to say only in retrospect. If either of these shows had failed, or even just been average sellers, we’d never be looking back and saying “I can’t believe Utapri only sold 5k, look at the seiyuu!” or “Garupan should have appealed to military otaku, what happened?”. About the only show in recent memory I recall a lot of people being surprised wasn’t a mega-hit was Kancolle, and that still did very well compared to the vast majority of anime that exist.

              We can always rationalize surprise (i.e. non-sequel) mega-hits after the fact (Osomatsu-san? Infinite Stratos s1? Anohana? Bake? Madoka?) but not before, and we have to after-the-fact rationalize just as hard for similar shows that don’t catch on to the same degree. I mean, take a lineup of recent slice of life shows with sales numbers stripped away and how many people would be able to accurately predict Gochiusa sells double what the others do? Or be able to explain why in any rational way? No more than you’d get by random change, I’d wager. This is why I describe sales as inherently unpredictable.

        • kollx says:

          Infiniti stratos sold like 30k.

      No they are boredof seeing the same type of anime again and again ana bahamut deserved this.

  3. NukaCola says:

    That is low for Dimension W which had funi a part of, I thought the anime would need to be a hit. I hope it didnt hurt their wallet much (though its is getting over a million viewers on american tv).

    • hpulley says:

      Funi probably doesn’t make any money from Japan anime disc sales anyway, or the manga sales. They likely only make money on viewers and subscriptions here plus their own R1 disc sales.

  4. Anon says:

    Arpeggio Ars Nova Cadenza sells 22,296 (17,459 LE BD/3,349 RE BD/2,118 DVD), almost doubling the 11,5K-first week from the recap movie. Arpeggio stronger than ever.

    On another matter, I think I forgot to mention last week that Ajin TV v1 sold 1,547 units (846 BD/701 DVD).

  5. primadog says:

    According to the Quick View spreadsheet, 42% of late night anime beat the manabi line historically. Based on this week’s actual sales, this season will probably fall well short of that.

    • Ejc says:

      Manabi Line is no longer relevant in this day and age. It’s a mere past tradition from 2ch, and is probably better used as a divider of anime in a season, just as the 10K line is used for this purpose.

      Also, since the discovery of the Oricon extended lists, the Manabi line is no longer 2,899 (it was always based on Vol.1 sales, not the average sales of Manabi Straight). The Manabi Line is more around 3,400 in reality, I believe.

    It would we good if we get to know sales of LN’s and mangas like animes

    • Progeusz says:

      LNs, not LN’s
      manga, not mangas
      anime, not animes

    • something something says:

      There are sites that track such things. I don’t have the time or interest to do so here, though.

      For games, I check the thread by Chris1964 on Neogaf on Wednesdays. The thread for this week is: https://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1202304

      For manga and novels, I don’t look at those often but MAL has a weekly post I sometimes check: http://myanimelist.net/news/45290035 for last week’s, not sure if they have one from this week up yet.

      As for sites that collect this data in big aggregated tables by year or all time with running totals and such like I do for anime, I’m not sure if there are any for manga and novels.

  7. something something says:

    Will do the full ranking post tonight or tomorrow but for now here’s the updated vol 1s:

    9,516 – Konosuba
    4,908 – Hokuto no Ken Ichigo-aji [Fall ’15]
    4,380 – Gate s2
    4,011 – Prince of Stride
    2,644 – Bokumachi
    2,240 – Shirayuki-hime s2
    1,915 – Norn9
    1,692 – Active Raid
    1,624 – Diabolik Lovers s2
    1,565 – AnsaKyou s2
    1,426 – Bahamut
    1,403 – Schwarzesmarken
    1,046 – Dimension W
    506 – Haruchika
    * – Hakone-chan
    * – Komugi-chan R
    * – Luck & Logic
    * – Reikenzan
    * – Shokomeza

    • hpulley says:

      Ouch, poor Dimension W. Really enjoyed that one and it got almost zero manga bump either, real shame.

      Haruchika…. also ouch though I’m not as surprised.

      And under 500 for the rest? Season of death confirmed. Reikenzan got S2 as well… go figure.

    • BlackPoint says:

      nice nice shirayuki is pretty much there where it was until now with its 2,5k~ average, really glad its selling that good even though shoujo stuff rarely sells more then 1.5k unless its some really reverse harem stuff….and quite poor sells for bahamut and schwarzesmarken :/ And about Luck&Logic does that mean that it didnt even sell 500 disc?? o,o , cuz they are making another season or so for it or well its not really 100% that its gonna to be a 2nd season for now it just says that its gonna be a new series so makes me really wonder, from where they see any profit in all this…

      • something something says:

        If a show that totally bombs on disc sales gets a sequel very quickly, it usually means it was planned to have multiple seasons from the start, and the sequel is already in planning/production.

        • BlackPoint says:

          Yeh it seems so, oh well a nice money waste while there are some many good animes that deserve 2nd season ugh just makes me mad only >_<

    • Hahalollawl says:

      Interesting that Schwarzesmarken sold so much less than Total Eclipse. IDK how much Total Eclipse’s first volume sold, but since it averaged 5451 I’d guess somewhere around 7k, so 1,403 is quite a lot less. Wasn’t very interested in Schwarzesmarken personally, but it is interesting since they are the same franchise (I think?).

      Well, PA seemed to be on a bit of a roll with Shirobako and Charlotte, so maybe they were due for a low seller. Interesting that (IIRC) Shirobako and Charlotte were the originals, while Haruchika is the adaptation. You might think the originals would be more risky. Oh well, they’ll be back to doing an original with Kuromukuro, be interesting to see how that turns out.

      I know this might be a bit off topic, but does anyone happen to know how well yanaginagi’s song for Norn9 did? Based on Norn9’s sales, I wouldn’t expect much…

      • something something says:

        Well, there’s a per-volume sales list on this website where such things can be checked! (v1 sold 8,563)

        Total Eclipse ranked crazy high on Amazon after it was solicited, but as the show aired, interest dropped off sharply.

      • BlackPoint says:

        well originals might sell more cuz there is no cheaper version for it, cuz some ppl simply decide to only buy LN/manga instead of BD-DVD after they have seen the anime, so really only hardcore fans and thoose that can afford will buy LN/Manga and BD-DVD to support the series. While for originals you pretty much got only 1 option^^

        • Mami Kawada Lover says:

          Not necessarily: most originals also have adaptations or spin-offs released before or during the show’s airing, in order to build up hype or otherwise promote the anime. Even with original anime, in most cases there are ways to support a series beyond buying discs. The problem is for original shows which have no adaptations, like Argevollen.

      • fourteenwings says:

        Kazakiri sold about 4.3k, which isn’t actually way down from her last single Orarion (Owari no Seraph ED, about 4.5k).

        I do remember that she used to do quite a bit more (Tokohana sold 11k IIRC) but it’s not that bad? At the very least, it doesn’t have to do with NORN9.

    • Penguin trainer says:

      Why are you leaving out Grimgar in the rankings? Wouldn’t it be in slot #2?

      • something something says:

        Leaving it out of which rankings? It’s in the ranking data this week and I also mentioned it under Winter shows.

  8. something something says:

    Updated for the full list.

  9. kollx says:

    In the end both Asterisk and rakudai flopped. At this point rakudai won’t hit 4k.

    • BlackPoint says:

      well yeh rakudai selling 3.5k average while asterisk gonna do around 2.5k, much less then expected anyway they were both pretty much unknown at LN not selling much and after the anime they got a huge boost with the LNs especialy rakudai did, so iam still hoping that we might get a 2nd season someday^^

    • primadog says:

      Even the extended rankings couldn’t save these two shows?

      2016/03/23 Nurse Witch Komugi-chan R v1
      2016/03/23 Reikenzan: Hoshikuzu-tachi no Utage v1

      • something something says:

        Nope.

        Komugi-chan R is somehwere below 173 BDs, ranking #231 for the week. Outside top 300 on DVD.
        Reikenzan is DVD-only so it probably had higher thresholds to contend with but even so, outside the top 300 on DVD so not even an extended ranking placing.

    • something something says:

      I’ve updated the Winter Vol. 1 and Quick View posts. I might get around to the other stuff today, but more likely tomorrow if at all this weekend.

    • Progeusz says:

      308 BDs for AoKana? That’s a lot, 30% of wk1! I thought something similar would be the case from stock problems v1 had.
      Assuming DVDs don’t rank anymore, remaining five volumes only need to sell average of 784.2 BDs to reach 1k average or 904.2 for 1.1k.

      Every disc counts for Rakugo in my book. I’d love to see second season but the manga boost isn’t very big. Maybe national TV will find it interesting like it happened with Chihayafuru? I realize that’s a stretch though.

      Reikenzan is based on Chinese novels and is apparently very popular there, that would explain second season despite low sales in Japan – and we know that Oricon doesn’t report international sales so maybe DVDs aren’t such a disaster?

      • something something says:

        “Every disc counts for Rakugo in my book. I’d love to see second season but the manga boost isn’t very big. ”

        Last ep already announced the sequel! It’ll cover Yotarou and Konatsu’s story (presumably addressing the other five novels). Had to be planned from the beginning.

        • Progeusz says:

          Ooh, that’s great, thanks! Easter and other stuff stalled me so I wasn’t able to watch anything in past 10 days. Time to catch up now that I know great things await me :)

  11. Chad says:

    Sore ga Seiyuu failed miserably. It’s average is barely 1,100 copies, so even with the low budget they must have lost a lot of money on the show. So no second season, I guess. Upsetting, especially since the last episode ended on kind of a cliffhanger.
