And there’s the one major hit for Winter. Kill la Kill also keeps piling on as the positive reaction to the end continues.

Winter update:
Hoozuki v1 sells 6716/6124 A ver and 1140/1461 B ver, total 15,441 w/event ticket.
v2 sells 5616/4872 A ver and 1028/1266 B ver DVD, total 12,782. 17.3% event ticket drop, which is not bad in general, and rather good for a female-targeted event.

Nourin v1 sells 2934/737, total 3,671 w/event ticket.

Noragami v2 sells 2379/2483, total 4,862
v1 adds 251 DVDs, total 6,939 w/event ticket, probably over 7k with BDs this week.

Yakuindomo* v3 sells 2903/545, total 3,448.

Mikakunin v1 adds 326 BDs, total 8,280 w/event ticket+OVA.

Nisekoi v1 adds 266 BDs, total 7,437 w/event ticket.

Fall update:
Kyousougiga v4 sells 843 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Sekatsuyo v5 sells 686 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

v4 adds 948/555, total 10,516. First time DVDs got a wk2.
Average sitting pretty at almost 11.6k, 10k final average odds are very high now.

Gundam BF v1 adds 994 RE BD boxes, total 8,461 or with 1st half DVD avg, 9,006. If it gets enough momentum to rank 3 more times (or 2 really good ranks), it’ll quite possibly hit 10k.

Kyoukai v4 adds 303 BDs, total 3,752.

Summer update:
Monogatari v6 adds 531 BDs, total 40,229.

Past seasons:

  1. Progeusz says:

    Big second week for Arpeggio! What’s more, DVDs also ranked, putting it at 11,460. Only 10,192 left to 10k average over two volumes, 22,192 to 12k average. Hopefully Arpeggio makes it to the mid-year BD rankings, that would be a nice boost.

    Yay for Rebellion adding 15,5k. To be honest I thought it would be below 15k.

    So, we have the first (and only) 10k seller in Winter.
    Actually, it’s 15,441 for v1 and 11,754 for v2.
    Accounting for v2 B BD not ranking (probably sold a bit below 1k) so excluding it from the formula, we get 18% drop, not bad at all.

  2. NATAPORI says:

    Awesome Hoozuki no Reitetsu.Darkhorse for Winter 2014 beal all of anime.It’s show power strong of fangirl.

    • kira-kun says:

      Was it really a dark horse? Considering its source, its fujoshi or female otaku fanbase, and the nice disc packaging/extras, I don’t think anyone expected anything less than 10-12K back when it aired. Stalker certainly wasn’t a surprise. Bit underestimated. At least winter finally has the official 10K show. It would have been sad if there wasn’t one.

      • something says:

        I can’t say I ever saw anyone predicting 10k+ sales for Hoozuki before Winter started. Or many people talking about it in general, beyond wondering how Wit would do with their second show.

  3. Damius says:

    Nice week 2 for Madoka Movie 3. I hope it will reach 200k at some point…

  4. rederoin says:

    I never expected a female focused series(Hoozuki) to have such a small v2 event-ticket drop.

    Also nice to see that Madoka is still selling a lot. But its such a shame about Nourin, the v2 drop will really hurt it.

    • something says:

      I really have to wonder if the delay actually /helped/ sales, at least of v2. If you’re in the store picking up v1 and v2 is sitting right there, just as fresh and new… maybe it doesn’t account for much, I dunno. We’ll see how v3 does.

    • hpulley says:

      Is it really a female focused show? It seems to have a lot of female fans but it is for a male oriented manga. Is it really like UtaPri? Is the event as popular? I wasn’t sure the event was a big draw for it. It seems to have fairly good appeal to both.

      • mistress_kisara says:

        Majority of the fans of Hoozuki are female, its a lot more closer to Kurobas (and this is serialized in a shounen manga) than Utapri

      • something says:

        Honestly it seems like most manga adaptations that are popular with women run in ostensibly male-oriented magazines. Shoujo anime rarely makes for a disc sales hit, as we all know.

  5. hector says:

    Im like super nervous high school dxd is not up there no more at least this week I really really really extremely want a 3rd season plz make it happen

    • something says:

      Don’t worry about DxD, it did fine. The BD release for the second season is already compete. Volume 6 released on 2/26/2014 and ranked for 2 weeks, the same as all the other volumes in season two.

      Season one averaged 9,751 and season two averaged 9,099. That’s really, really good consistency for a sequel. Odds of a third season are pretty good, if there’s source material for it.

  6. Hanuta says:

    Is there a reason why Arpeggio got ignored here?

    • something says:

      I don’t think full-CGI television series should even be considered the same medium as anime, so for me it’d be like including live action, which I don’t do. The only reason I make a special exception to include it in the rankings at all is because a lot of anime fans still seem to be interested in it, for reasons beyond my comprehension.

      But keeping it in the rankings and taking the time to specifically type out comments on its running totals are two different things. I choose not to spend my time on doing the latter, and that applies to all full-CGI television series now and in the future.

      • Rayearth says:

        That’s so. Thanks for reporting its figures, at least.

        It can’t be denied that Ars Nova is the big winner of Fall 2013, though. Unless Kill la Kill sales explode somehow in the last few volumes.

        • kira-kun says:

          Fall has Kuroko and IS2 as #1/#2. Arpeggio was probably be #3. Unlikely Kill can make up the difference unless there is an event ticket or some other special I’m not aware of. Probably Nyanpasu and Yowapedel are bigger winners for Fall.

      • Anonymous says:

        This means you are going to do the same thing for Sidonia, yes? I don’t mind if you don’t ever bother to analyze its sales or include commentary on how it’s selling, but do you know if you could at least do the math and list the updated volume totals alongside everything else?

        • something says:

          “This means you are going to do the same thing for Sidonia, yes?”

          “but do you know if you could at least do the math and list the updated volume totals alongside everything else?”
          That CGI ships show has always been in all the relevant rankings, and whatever else it qualifies for in the future, such as the 10k list, or BD box list if it gets one of those.
          2013 averages
          2013 per-volume
          2013 fall vol 1

          So the same will go for that CGI mecha show.

          (Note I update the rankings above on Thursday nights after the full list comes out, so any data from today isn’t included in the calculations yet.)

          All that said I do reserve the right to stop listing these shows entirely if they get more and more common in the future. Of course if things get so bad that there’s enough CGI shows displacing anime to bring that about, I’ll likely be giving up on anime and thus on sales tracking anyway – so it’s kind of a moot point I suppose.

          • Anon-kun says:

            So, I will need to begin stalking uresure on futaba to keep in touch with anime sales? God damn it.

            • something says:

              Not sure where you read that in my comment – in a couple years under a hypothetical worst-case scenario, maybe yes. For now and the foreseeable future it’s business as usual and nothing has changed. I mean, yeah things have changed a lot (not positively) in how I view anime as one of my personal hobbies over the past year, but in terms of sales reporting on this website absolutely nothing has changed.

      • Progeusz says:

        I hope you don’t mind my comments about Arpeggio then.

        Really, it was show of the Fall 2013 for me so I always jump in joy when I see it do well. Your site is the best one for sales-related stuff and I think it would be strange if something was omitted so I’m willing to sum up its performance in your stead with a line or two in a comment. And do it with pleasure as it’s pretty interesting case with high sales, popularity growing over time and respectable consistency
        Art-wise, it’s much closer to standard anime than for example Aku no Hana, so I don’t see any problem there but I respect your opinion as I usually dislike CGI as well and can somewhat understand your feelings. Actually, it surprised me that I was able to enjoy Arpeggio at all, not to mention liking it so much.

      • Masterman says:

        Hate to say this, but you might need to get used to the fact that full-CGI could very well be the future of anime. Arpeggio proved that full-CGI anime is still clearly a work in progress but it’s viable and at times practically indistinguishable from hand-drawed anime. The guys at Japan recognize how ground-breaking Arpeggio is and that’s why they are rewarding its creators rather than hating on it like many in the West are.

        • steenspring says:

          This is completely speculative, but I doubt that it has anything to do with the Japanese recognizing that Arpeggio is ground-breaking (which it really isn’t as there have been other full cg works in the past) and more to do with the explosive popularity of a certain free-to-play online card game that happens to also feature naval warships and cute girls (albeit the cute girls are anthropomorphism’s of the naval warships).

        • I don’t know how others feel about it, but my issue with 3DCG is that it’s really two separate trends right now. The first, shows like Arpeggio and Sidonia, is shows that are built around it and can highlight its good points (smooth-looking models, mecha action) and try to cover up its incredibly weak points (when the people-models have to move dynamically). Sidonia might be flubbing it, but Arpeggio did a great job of limiting how much awkward running motion it had to show by relying a bit more on camera angle swaps and background shots. I’m totally fine if a percentage of shows end up being like that, and I said as much in the leadup to Arpeggio last summer. I don’t think CG will suddenly be replacing the majority of hand-drawn art, though. Toy Story/Pixar were a lot better at CG in 1995 than Sanzigen is now, and the US still has a very solid number of traditionally animated TV shows airing each year (via wikipedia, the balance of new animated shows aired in the US in 2013 was 12-7 in favor of traditional over CGI, 12-11 if you count flash as CGI).

          I’m a lot less fine with otherwise hand-drawn shows that just plug in CG sequences into an otherwise hand-drawn show for no better reason than because it costs less to animate that way. It’s somewhat distracting when you’re watching a hand-drawn show and all of a sudden an obnoxious-looking CG crowd pops up. That kind of thing probably doesn’t make or break a show for me, but it does make me nostalgic for the late-90s/early-2000s period where anime would just abuse slow camera pans over pretty-looking background shots to cover up for their lack of budget. And that was a lot closer to being a legitimate stylistic choice. I dunno, I feel like the issue is more that people are overusing CG in situations where they really don’t have to use it at all right now, which is a much bigger problem than how it looks per se. Definitely a fixable issue, but not a trivial one that gets fixed just because the technology gets better.

        • something says:

          Uh, no I don’t “have to” get used to anything. We’re not talking about breathing air or eating food. We’re talking about a hobby I can drop (or cut back on more, I’ve gone from 15-20+ shows a season to ~5 as is) if I really need to.

          I don’t think it’s useful to get into this further – I could give you opinions for days on this topic, but what would that solve besides frustrating myself?

          • Progeusz says:

            Why do you watch only ~5 shows nowadays? Lack of time? I find it hard to believe you have nothing interesting to watch as I counted 18 shows I’m interested in based on the pre-release info alone.
            JoJo, SE Not! (nice SoL), Haikyuu (it’s sports though), Ping Pong (it’s honestly good. Really good, it’s impossible to deny it), Mekaku (Shaft magic, still waiting how it turns out, ep1 didn’t tell much), Puchimas!! (it seems even better than great S1), Inugami-san (decent yuri), Mahouka (can’t skip on “new SAO” and manga wasn’t too bad), AnR (more yuri! I’m glad you like it though I’m still waiting for proper subs or BDs), Daimidaler (gotta check out what has some chance to repeat DxD’s success), Break Blade, Love Live (however CG an chara designs are ugly here, probably why you don’t watch it), DAL II (honestly well made harem with interesting humor), Atelier (yuri! at least in the game?), Gochuumon (obvious AOTS), NGNL (loli imouto is cute), Isshukan Friends (lighthearted ef? count me in), Mushishi (after I watch S1 I’m sure to love), Mangaka-san (for some ecchi comedy). Oops, 19. BB has no subs though.

            • something says:

              …A combination of factors, to avoid getting too deeply into it. But Fall 2013 is when my relationship with the industry crashed. Or I guess severely narrowed is a better description. I went from finishing 14 full-length shows in Summer 2013 to 3 in Fall 2013, 4 in Winter 2014, and we’re looking at maybe at low as 3 (4 if you count Fairy Tail though I tend to separate long-running shows out) in Spring 2014. Plus 0-3 short series but those barely count.

              Focusing on what I will watch rather than what I won’t – with very few exceptions, these days I’ll only watch two (very different) kinds of shows:
              1. Shows with all-female casts, preferably cute females doing cute things
              2. A handful of shounen-y adventure-y series (mainstream-leaning stuff, not so much otaku stuff, so most LNs are out)

              And even if your show is in one of those two categories there are a variety of reasons why I might skip it.

              The above only leaves a handful of series each season.

              While I’m much less passionate about the industry and less optimistic about its future than I used to be, I can of course still get pretty into some shows. And I’m really devoting my time and resources and love to just those few core shows.

  7. AnimePhoenix says:

    HOZUKI-SAMA!!!! <3 I'm so glad that this show was appreciated and it's drop isn't that bad. And according to Stalker, volume 3 doesn't look like it'll drop much if anything at all…at least right now.

    And Noragami volume 1, please cross 7k. Volume 2 only about 500 copies less than volume 1. Volume 3 will undoubtedly drop more but as long as it gets a 3k average, I'm satisfied. Anything more than that is welcome though.

    KuroBasu rocking as usual.

  8. something says:

    Full list updated. Kill La Kill is probably like 80% chance to hit 10k avg now. Kurobas has an increasingly good shot (though still <50% I'd guess) at 20k.

    Ranking summary to follow tonight as usual. Or Friday, I'm probably going to be stuck in work late and need time for Inugami/Gochiusa again.

  9. hpulley says:

    Nice 4K get for WUG v1 and 40K for Otori v2!

    And 8K for Mikakunin v1 though I didn’t buy that one.

  10. Tiago says:

    Quite happy to see nisekoi managing a week 3, too bad it missed week 2 on DVD. But still ~7.5k is alright, let’s see th drop now… Hopefully not too bad, as the anime is not animating a great part from the manga.
