Winter update:
ACCA v1 sells 2436/1236, total 3,672. 37.0% under/46.1% overestimated. This is a great example of how hard the “high price penalty” can be to apply. Stalker’s predictions on BD were 1778 with the penalty (much too low) and 3,672 without the penalty (way way too high). Not applying the penalty is obviously incorrect, but the degree of penalty was too harsh. The DVDs meanwhile did not have the penalty, and were hugely overestimated. It’s a tricky balancing act.

LWA v1 sells 2997/297, total 3,294. 24.0%/42.9% overestimated. Looks like it was pretty Amazon-heavy. Sub-3k average is quite possible given that it’s 9 volumes long.

Ai Mai Mii s3 sells 371 BDs, DVDs do not rank. 23.0% overestimated. One shot release, so Series average: 371.

Maidragon v2 sells 3075/465, toal 3,540.

Yowapedal NG v1 adds 275 DVDs, total 4,119.

Fall update:
Tourabu v4 sells 6987/5746, total 12,733.

Euphonium s2 v5 sells 5754/496, total 6,250.

G Tekketsu s2 v4 sells 4156/558, total 4,714.
v5 sells 4043/615, total 4,658.

Show By Rock s2 v5 sells 1,629 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Long Riders v4 sells 1,024 BD, DVDs do not rank.

Magic-kyun v5 sells 700/320, total 1,020.

Matoi v2, final volume, sells 519. BD-box release, singles also but they won’t rank. Series average: 537.

All Out v4 sells 299 BD, DVDs do not rank.

Udon no Kuni v5 sells 232 BD, DVDs do not rank.

YOI v3 adds 265 BDs, total 59,718.
v4 adds 414/239, total 56,575.

Utapri s4 v4 adds 347 BDs, total 17,286.

Haikyuu s3 v5, final volume, adds 580/522, total 9,314. Series average: 10,034. It’s gone 25,514 → 15,169 → 10,034 across three seasons, but at least it’s still a 9th 10k seller for 2016. That should be the last of 2016’s 10ks.

 
Past seasons:
Days v7 sells 394/506, total 900.

Gangsta v4 sells 533/340, total 873.

LL Sunshine v7 adds 252, total 63,520. With the first ticket application period over, it hitting a brick wall (it did >4k per week the two weeks before this) isn’t too unexpected. We’ll see what the second round brings in a few weeks.

 
OVAs, Movies, Boxsets etc:
Hitman Reborn BD Box v1 sells 978.

Fate/GO OVA adds 281 BDs, total 24,052.

Winter starts a few more series, the end of the quarter brings some random BD box spam, and Spring starts via by far its biggest title: a shipment of mobage app codes. …Also they have BDs packaged with them I guess.

    Winter Vol 1 rankings updated: http://www.someanithing.com/6832.

  2. Avatar Yaoi-Senpai says:

    YOI is still selling, I hope vol.3 reached 60k copies.
    I’m so happy that Touken Ranbu is selling strong without Event tickets. I can’t wait to see the sales of Next week, Vol.5 of YOI is out.

  3. Avatar Elio says:

    Is it just me or the Gundam: Iron Blood sold units looking kind of low?

    • Avatar Prima says:

      I can’t recall the last time a Mecha series sold, even the latest Macross was sub-10k. That’s just the state of the genre. It really needs a Madoka-style shake up to the genre agai

    • something something says:

      They’re not great, no. But if you look at it like one continuous 18 volume series rather than two discrete seasons so far it’d be like:

      13,243 (game codes)
      10,307
      9,729
      8,577
      7,753
      7,604
      7,268
      6,849
      7,515
      6,930
      5,899
      5,275
      4,714 (→ 5.1k?)
      4,658 (→ 5.1k?)

      The two most recent volumes only have wk1, so they’ll get close to the previous volume probably.

      This looks like a more natural decline, rather than comparing “s1v1 did 13k, s2v1 did 6.9k?”.

      Split cour shows can just be like that, and this one definitely isn’t bucking the trend.

  4. Avatar Wyatt says:

    Where’s Kemono Friends?

    • something something says:

      Not anime, and sold as a book rather than a BD, so it wouldn’t be covered here anyway.

      • Avatar Exukvera says:

        Probably that book outsold any title on the list, given how surprsingly popular the series is.

      • Avatar Wyatt says:

        Kemono Friends isn’t an anime? Is it Chinese? Also I didn’t know the second part

        • Avatar hpulley says:

          Not Chinese but 100% cheap CGI.

          Oricon reported the first volume of the guidebook with BD sold 12.6K copies after three weeks but it failed to rank a fourth time. The publisher says 120K were shipped though they were talking about the first two volumes into total so about 60K per volume. Both were reprinted and online orders are available again after being listed as unavailable.

          • Avatar Flushme says:

            Guess it’s Girls und Panzer all over again?

            However, how is Berserk treated here, since I heared many CGI scenes of the 2016 series where replaced by hand-drawn segments for the BD release.

            • something something says:

              The new Berserk movies/series are full-CG, and thus not in scope of this website either. Adjusting a few scenes for BD, to whatever extent they did that, wouldn’t fundamentally change the designation. Anyone who wants to is more than welcome to start their own “CG Animation DVD/BD Sales in Japan” website any time they want.

              • Avatar Flushme says:

                I wasn’t complaining they aren’t listed here. I was just wondering wether there’s a defined line which defines how much CGI is needed for something to not be listed here.

                • something something says:

                  Understood, was just pointing it out to put the kibosh on anyone else complaining about it. The rule of thumb I’d suggest is: “Are the characters full-3DCG?” That’s generally going to be the line. Once you’ve full-CG’d the characters, you’re really aiming to do something fundamentally different from 2D animation.

                  There will always be corner cases in any classification of, well, anything. The “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?” effect, and all that. That Kado show for example is one I need to research a bit, since it seems to be a highly unusual mix where some characters are CG and some aren’t. But even with as much as CG has infested the animation industry (RIP America, and Japan wont survive too much longer either) the guideline I mentioned earlier still provides a pretty clear distinction in the vast majority of cases.

                  • Avatar Flushme says:

                    Sure thing. I already appreciated what you did over at MAL and still appreciate what you are doing here. I guess with the growing usage of CGI and the growing western community it will only get harder to draw lines. Thunderbolt Fantasy and Quan Zhi Gao Shou are two examples which are handled in different ways by various sites.

                    Kemono Friends is just something I’m really interested in because of its “huge success out of nowhere” status/potential and its quite hard to find anything reliable in terms of numbers.

        AOT 2 was already comfirmed that it will sell bad.

        • Avatar Ayumi says:

          I just read the comments on that site and people over there are actually angry that you’re celebrating YOI’s sales success LOL.. Jealous much? You weren’t even off topic.

          So glad we have someanithing.com here. <3

          • Avatar Yaoi-Senpai says:

            Yeah xD I don’t care, that’s not their webs. I can report it because they are trying to bait me, but I don’t have to do it.

          • Avatar Cyssa says:

            I feel the same Ayumi, I’m glad to be capable to express my love for YOI in this page without being bashed. I feel here like my safe place! (sorry, my english is terrible)

          • Avatar AnimePhoenix says:

            Same, Ayumi. I think the people on MAL are just jealous of YOI’s sales. You wouldn’t see them complaining about ReZero’s constant sales posts lol.

            • Avatar Yaoi-Senpai says:

              @ayumi @phoenix @cyssa yeah, that’s why I love this website as well. Here I can fangirl as much as I like, so one can spam, and no one can send me their dirty dicks pictures. if you check the news right now, they are still trolling xD I guess I should report.

      • Avatar Zhou says:

        If SnK S2 sells as little as it’s currently projected to, will that be the biggest drop-off between seasons in the history of anime?

    • Avatar hpulley says:

      GranBlue already has an English setting though no English dub yet, just English UI and subtitles.

    • Avatar NukaCola says:

      The console game will probably see an actual release by an publisher…however, like noted previously the game has had english option for almost one whole year now, you litrally just select english and its there (though voices are all in japanese).

      Granblue will sell well because of that SSR Kat, swimsuit chara versions, new job, and the opportunity to get a gold brick. Even better if they make it where the characters will not be able to be attained unless you have the bd/dvd code.

  6. Avatar NukaCola says:

    Wow that monster strike movie sale :( At least they got movie tickets off of it. Hoping they add it to their youtube site so I can see it.

  7. Avatar anon-kun says:

    There is that blog post by Keijo’s mangaka, claiming that 1st volume actually sold almost 10 times more than reported by Oricon: http://ameblo.jp/kokage2010/entry-12268151094.html. Is there anything at all to back up his claim or should I just take his word for it?

    • Avatar homu says:

      Seems highly unlikely. We have plenty of industry interviews that talked about and lamenting selling a couple thousand disks per volume. Oricon under reports, but no one until now claims by an order of magnitude. If Oricon had consistently missed by that much, we would have spotted that discrepancy long ago via other sources like JVA’s annual market reports.

    • something something says:

      https://curiouscat.me/somekindofthing/post/140076853

      Gave my two cents on the Keijo thing there. tl;dr is it’d be awesome if it’s true, but that’s kinda questionable, the statement that was made is limited in scope anyway, and it’s impossible to say how applicable it would be to other shows even if it’s 100% exactly how everyone is interpreting it.

  11. Avatar Blue mouser says:

    Something, even if second season sales of YOI don’t do anywhere near as well as the first season is doing, assuming a second season which looks like a very strong possibility, there is a good chance YOI committee members will still make money right? Especially if YOI merchandise and magazines which feature YOI articles continue to sell well then they will make a profit, yes? I think I remember you pointing out that the bulk of money from a series is not from sales of DVD/BD but from associated merch. Sorry if I asked this before.

    I mean if say second season disc sales fall significantly, say fall to 10,000 per volume or even 5,000 per volume the series can still make money so that maybe we can get a third season? I’m just so happy that the series is selling so well and am worried about the reaction when there is the inevitable drop in sales. YOI does not have a manga series or light novel source from whose sales revenue is generated and the existence of an anime can drive sales of the original source (manga, light novel, web comic etc). I really love this show and want it to continue to do well

    Seriously all the merch. Just when I think okay I have all the merch I want something cool cones out. Le sigh

    • Avatar Blue mouser says:

      That is something cool comes out on the amiami or cdjapan websites.

    • Avatar Tuna says:

      I would still like to think theyd do a yuri on ice movie. Everyone seems to be doing movies these days…

      Also still waiting on my free s3

      Also do they really make that much from merch? I cant imagine 400 jpy keychains or very limited runs of 12000 jpy figures and pillow case covers can really bring in big money.

      • Avatar NukaCola says:

        Heh I was right they are doing a YoI movie.

        • Avatar Cyssa says:

          So much happy for the news!!! Will it be a original story? I saw that some animes are relaunched like a movie compilation.

          • Avatar Yaoi-Senpai says:

            I hope it will be about Victor! Btw, Yuri on ice is original so ofc the movie will be original

          • something something says:

            If they did a compilation film, it’d have to be as a lead in to a second season. I think it’s much more likely it’s a new story.

            • Avatar Yaoi-Senpai says:

              It’s written in Ann that it will be recompilation.

              • No, it says that it specifically “rules out” a recompilation. This is the official tweet:
                https://twitter.com/yurionice_PR/status/858297268453097472

                完全新作劇場版の制作が決定しました!!!
                “A brand new movie has been greenlit for production!!!”

                This makes sense as a film would allow Yamamoto to focus on maintaining the quality of the skating animation better than a new season. It makes sense for the committee as films have earned more than TV series have in recent years according to some industry people.

                • Avatar Davv says:

                  Does an original movie reduce the chances for a second season?

                  • Avatar Yaoi-Senpai says:

                    @davv Yes, because maybe the film will be the final. Remember Yuri dream is to be the 1st and then quit. When he quit, Victor will marry him.

                    Anyway, Recap or not, I will watch it. Tbh, I want it to be a recap so that means there is a second season.

                    • something something says:

                      You have a habit of jumping to conclusions much too quickly. While a recap movie would be more likely to happen if they were leading into a second season, a new film by no means excludes a second season. There may be other reasons not to do a full TV sequel, but it’s so successful that it still has plenty of options.

                    • Avatar Davv says:

                      @something I don’t think YS was jumping to conclusions – they replied to my question about reduced chances, rather than complete exclusion of the possibility.

                • Avatar Cyssa says:

                  It’s nice to know that it will be a new story. I’m looking forward to know more about the project.

          Yup you and Tuna and some others absolutely called it. Dunno how to feel as it means how soon I and other international fans will be able to see it will be dependent upon so many factors. But at least they recognize they have a very popular storyline and are not waiting around.

    • something something says:

      This is all impossible to say. If reported disc sales were to drop from 50-60k down to 5k, well first that would be insane (possibly worse than the Shingeki drop we’re looking at), but it would also imply a huge reduction in the size of the overall fanbase too. And that would imply everything else is less profitable too. (Not unprofitable, but nothing like the current situation.)

      But that’s such an extreme scenario I don’t think you need to worry about it. And in general, thinking about a third season before a second is even confirmed just gets much too abstract to talk about meaningfully. Too many moving parts, too many unanswerable questions.

      Look it’s depends, if S2 is completed then we will not get a 3rd season. And if we still don’t know anything about Victor, then maybe we will get a movie. And don’t worry about the sales, it will not decrease like attack on titan, maybe like free! Eternal summer.

      @cola: there is a special on October, I hope they announce a new sequel about Haru and his team.

    Granblue has a DVD and BLURAY or only one of them?

    1) very curious for gbf’s actual sales next week
    2) i wonder which will sell more, gbf v1 vs yoi v5

    • something something says:

      YOI v5 may do about 45k wk1, assuming it has another very good hold. Granblue v1 is currently estimated at 62,095. While I expect Granblue to be overestimated somewhat (it ranked well outside of Amazon… but well enough to support the insane performance at Amazon? Probably not.) but I’m not sure if it’ll be *that* overestimated.

      • Avatar Yaoi-Senpai says:

        GBF has an event ticket?

      • Avatar JJ says:

        Dailies suggest GBF will likely be around 35k-45k given what it’s above and below but who knows.

        • something something says:

          It was #1 both pre-sale and release day so there’s really no way to estimate what that means. More interesting is that it dropped to #10 on its third day. Obviously this is because everything ahead od it is a 4/28 release, so their pre-sale days should naturally be higher than most discs’ third days. Still, it might imply it was preorder-biased aka Amazon-biased, as expected.

          But dailies are nothing if not consistently, extremely misleading.

          • Avatar JJ says:

            The estimate comes more from how obviously wildly the DVDs have been overestimated. But I agree, dailies can be extremely misleading.

            • something something says:

              DVDs were #3, 2, 6 so far. With that Hey Say Jump release at #1 all three days, it’s almost as difficult to say how the DVDs will do as the BDs, I think.

              That said, yeah I expect a lot of the overestimation will come from DVD. I hadn’t even noticed until now just how much of the estimate came from the DVDs, actually.

              • Avatar JJ says:

                I’m going to be brutally honest and say I have no idea where some of the estimates come from, just that they are right often enough that I sort of blindly repeat them now. (Not that I usually repeat them anywhere. Not many watch dailies for entertainment) It turned out to be 42k anyway somehow. One day I may yet learn the ways of daily prediction. (I was also recently impressed with the great 20-22k FGO prediction as well)

                • something something says:

                  I wouldn’t worry too much about dailies, they’re kind of useless for prediction beyond the absolute broadest strokes. A ranking without numbers provides little to no context.

                  As for how Stalker predictions work, it’s described in the FAQ linked at the top.

                  • Avatar JJ says:

                    I wasnt talking about stalker predictions? I was talking about weekly daily predictions haha. I know they are meaningless but they are fun. I play seasonal box office prediction games for similar reasons and dailies are much harder so its very impressive when people can predict weekly stuff within a couple percentages so consistently. You say dailies lie but there are people who get within 5% every week. One day I may get on their level, but probably never.

                    • Avatar JJ says:

                      Though Stalker does still play a decent part in the daily guessing game in more than just the obvious aspect. Gotta guess those DVD/BD ratios somehow

                    • something something says:

                      Using dailies for estimates is basically luck, in the sense that how close you get depends a lot on the release slate. It depends on other releases around the release you’re estimating having known sales from previous volumes. It’d definitely require tracking sales for more than anime since a good chunk of the dailies are things like concerts and mainstream films.

                      So if there’s enough coming out in a week, and enough of them can be closely estimated based on other sources of information, then yeah you can ballpark an unknown release in the dailies. But there’s just literally not enough information to be confident all the time, not with a couple tens of releases to work with. There simply isn’t a relationship between a daily ranking number and an amount of sales – only a relationship of one release to the releases above and below.
