C3-bu has been dethroned. If you can call it that…

Winter update:
Mahou Sensou v1 sells 301 BDs, DVDs do not rank. Welp.

Strange Plus sells 229 BDs, DVDs do not rank, in a one-shot release. That’s worse than C3-bu! Actually I don’t even have this show in my spreadsheet… forgot it existed. I’ll have to add it later.

Chuu2koi v2 sells 5323/748, total 6,071 or down less than 3% from v1wk1. Stable vol to vol like expected, even if the season to season drop is anything but.

Mikakunin v2 sells 4695/570, total 5,265, down about 17% from v1wk1. A small drop considering event ticket and OVA, though v1 added over 1.9k in wks 2+, which will not be replicated here. Should hit 6k though?
v1 adds 203 BDs, total 8,483.

Saku Zenkoku-hen v2 sells 3731/264, total 3,995. Wow, what? 21.4% drop on v1wk1 for no reason I can discern, it wasn’t an event ticket volume. There was a little bundled manga chapter type thing but I really did not think it’d have anything like this much effect.

Sakura Trick v2 sells 1735/252, total 1,987. Under 2k even with DVDs ranking, expected but fuck his universe nonetheless. 22% event ticket drop is in the typical range.

Hoozuki v1 adds 714 BD, 877/253 DVD, total 17,285.
v2 adds 815 BD, 925/272 DVD, total 14,794, less than 15% drop.
I guess both B ver. BD may rank on Thursday.

Noragami v2 adds 330/434, total 5,626.

Nourin v1 adds 291 BDs, total 3,962.

Yakuindomo* v3 adds 325 BDs, total 3,773.

Fall update:
Yowapedal v5 sells 2422/2216, total 4,638.

Yozakura v5 sells 1317/416, total 1,733.

GaliDon v5 sells 560 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Gingitsune v5 sells 452 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Kill La Kill v4 adds 222 BDs, total 10,738.

Strike the Blood v3 adds 346 BDs, total 6,030 in wk4. That means it added 73 in wk3. This tells us two interesting things: First, that Oricon counts BDs down to 300, not 200 as I’d thought before. That brings it in line with DVDs, which count to 300. Second, that you can make Oricon’s totals with under 100 discs (just not the top 100 we see, it’s never gone quite that low). I don’t think this is the first time I’ve seen a <100 week for a show appear when calculating backwards from a later ranking (sometimes happens in monthly ranking lists), but it is rare and worth pointing out. Summer update:
Monogatari v6 adds 271 BDs, total 40,500.

Past seasons:
Shingeki v9, final volume, adds 265 BDs, total 40,403 in wk5. Series average: 50,731.

OVAs, Movies, Boxsets etc:
Madoka Movie 3 adds 3275/588/840, total 168,285.

And there’s another nightmare week to ensure Sakura Trick never gets wk2s, just to make things look that extra ~200 discs worse and kill chances of 2k average.

  1. Progeusz says:

    This is really depressing… Not even 4k for Saki, Less than 2k for Sakura Trick despite BDs ranking (barely!), and the show I liked the least from Winter’s top is the most consistent…

    Yeah, Rebellion is already down to 4k in third week, ~4.5k with Thursday’s list. Now we’re left wondering how long will it keep it ranking.

    Another good week for Hoozuki fans, maybe I’ll check out the show. Female buyers helped a lot but it would be #1 even if we only counted BDs…

    • something says:

      Female buyers have shifted increasingly to BD too, but yeah even if we cut out 50.06% of its sales (DVD), it’s still on track to beat anything else this season… wow, that really drives home what a sales disaster Winter was, because even though Hoozuki is a clear success, it’s not like it’s selling 20k.

      • Progeusz says:

        True, few years ago DVDs would have clear advantage while now it’s pretty much even.
        Hopefully Spring will look brighter, especially if Gochiusa manages 5k+. Though I’ll be happy with anything above 3k

        Oh, and above I obviously meant to write “despite DVDs”

        • something says:

          Can only hope, regarding Gochiusa. It’s dropped slightly faster than I’d have hoped, but not by a lot, and part of that is v1’s sales being split. v2 is still ranking 124 so a non-split v1 should be top 120, maybe 110.

          Thursday will be important! Assuming another character gets introduced, I hope to see all the volumes back in the top 100 again. C’mon Gochiusa, save Spring for me. Help soothe the wounds of the apocalyptically bad ranking of Akuma no Riddle.

          • hpulley says:

            I don’t know if it’s the split or the Chino solo version of the OP on the bonus CD (it is Cocoa’s solo on v1) but v2 is higher than v1 now on Amazon which is weird. v2 has an event ticket as well. Still, not burning it up yet but hopefully soon.

            • something says:

              It’s purely the split.

              v1 normal is 158, worth ~53pt
              v1 Amazon is 474, worth ~24pt
              v2 is 134, worth ~59pt

              v1’s combined ~77pt is equivalent to ranking somewhere between 70 and 110, average ~85th place (based on 39 data points to compare to).

  2. rederoin says:

    Another extremely busy week next week, why can’t japan spread out the releases more?

    It’ll be interesting to how ‘tesagure!’ will perform next month. From its really bad ranking in early autumn, to the top 20 on Amazon Japan. It estimated at 4.2k~, but its sudden boost on Amazon might mean its underestimated.

    Pretty much everybody I know agrees that Winter 2014 was one hell of a depressing season for anime sales. But it’ll finally be over next week with the last batch of v1s coming out. Even though, aside from ‘Tesagure!’, they will all flop.

    • rederoin says:

      Just took a second look at ‘tesagure!’, season was estimated at 1.5k~ before release, season 2 is now estimated at 4.4k~. Almost triple of season 1.

    • Anon-kun says:

      They held a Tesagure event on Sunday, and it certainly hepled. Niconico ratings were incredible, too.

  3. Tiago says:

    Good hold for Mikakunin, it deserves it. Would be great if it could manage 6k~ until the end.

    Next week Nisekoi v2.. all my prayers.

  4. Anonymous says:

    Can you check the Hoozuki math? I think you mixed up the two volumes when summing up totals.

    • something says:

      It looks like I got all the versions straight (which is good because I spent like 10 minutes checking and double-checking, it was way more confusing than it should have been!), but last week I typed “6142” instead of “6124” into my spreadsheet for v1 DVD A ver., which slightly threw off v1. v1 is 17,285 now, not 17,303. Thanks for the heads up.

      Edit: Oh I see why you asked, I put some of the numbers backwards in the commentary – but thankfully summed the totals right in my spreadsheet, so the totals were right (except for that 42 vs 24 last week) but the comments backwards.

  5. something says:

    Updated for the full list. Ranking summary and all that to follow probably tomorrow unless I get out of work early.

    • hpulley says:

      Strange+ just got a season2 though! Apparently disc sales don’t matter, the manga ad must have worked.

      Mahou Sensou 301 copies… ouch but it could have been worse. It did rank…

      • something says:

        Not even sure if manga sales went up, really just feels like these things are dirt cheap to produce since they keep coming!

        • hpulley says:

          Someone told me Strange+2 was actually announced before the first season aired. Not sure if that was true but certainly could be. New reason for season 2’s: because it was cheap and we felt like it.

          • AnimePhoenix says:

            Yep, it’s true. Season 2 was announced before Season 1 started. Saw it on MAL first.

            • something says:

              Yeah I thought I’d heard that too, but multiple people today said it was just announced today so I thought maybe I’d misremembered. Perhaps today was the “official” announcement or something.

  6. Masterman says:

    Saki Zenkoku-hen v1 sold only because it came with a nude illustration of Nodoka, the fact that they included it shower how desperate they were to sell the vols.

    • something says:

      “Only because” is quite some hyperbole, and it’s a really successful franchise (disc sales aren’t everything) so “desperate” is pretty unfair. Sure that pack-in would have helped some, but it doesn’t make any sense for it to have made this much of a difference.

      • Masterman says:

        Saki Zenkoku-hen v1 was tanking relatively badly in sales (outside of #300 IIRC) before the announcement of nude Nodoka, it jumped back to top 100 just on the day of the nude Nodoka annoucement.

        • something says:

          The bonus definitely helped. In part because it does drive new buyers – but bonuses (especially when we know they’re coming but don’t have details) also artificially boost rankings because people who wait for bonus announcements before placing their orders all come in at once. Since Saki didn’t have much storefront effect, it looks like most of the people on the fence went with Amazon. Zenkoku-hen put on a solid and increasing performance as the final episodes aired tho, so it wasn’t all in a one-off spike.

          It’s just weird for it to have quite this much impact. Especially since you’d expect people buying _just_ for the bonus to buy the cheaper DVD version, like we often see with event tickets, but the drop came overwhelmingly on BD. A lot depends on how many BDs it added in its second week.

          But anyway I don’t object to the idea that the bonus drove sales, more to the characterization of a typical business tactic as “desperation”. The Saki franchise isn’t really in a desperate spot, even if it were to average more like 4k.

  7. sinderblock says:

    I wonder what’s happening to Buddy Complex this upcoming week. I’ve heard the preorder rankings for Vol. 2 supposedly improved.

    • something says:

      Doesn’t look it’s it’s doing anything v1 didn’t also do. v1 got into the top 300 during release week as well but it’s too little too late at that point.
