Winter update:
Hamatora v1 sells 885/1454, total 2,339. Event tickets with v1 and v2 and only 4 vols total so this is another winter casualty.

NobuFool v1 sells 719/487, total 1,206. Event tickets with v1 and v2 for this as well.

Space Dandy v1 sells 1,169 BDs, DVDs do not rank. Event ticket here.

Nobunagun v1 sells 443 BDs, DVDs do not rank. Being released as two boxes.

Nisekoi v2 sells 3830/1229, total 5,059. 21% drop on v1wk1, pretty typical event ticket drop.

Witch Craft Works v2 sells 3,840 as a BD-only release. 13.1% drop.

Maken-ki 2 v2 sells 2228/512, total 2,740. 19.4% drop.

Sekai Seifuku v2 sells 2,297 BDs, DVDs do not rank. 17% drop.

D-Frag! v2 sells 1,991 BDs, DVDs do not rank. 26% drop.

Inarikonkon v2 sells 1,476 BDs, DVDs do not rank. 25.3% drop.

BuddyCom v2 sells 1,157 as a BD-only release. 1.4% rise.

ImoCho v2 sells 1,147 BDs, DVDs do not rank. 34.2% drop.

SoniAni v2 sells 747 BDs, DVDs do not rank. 79.3% drop. It almost seems silly to compare when the first was more a figure than a BD, but yeeeeeep, this was expected. Nearly 80%…

Chuunibyou Ren v2 adds 776 BDs, total 6,847. 8.1% drop on v1wk2.

Mikakunin v2 adds 621 BDs, total 5,886. 20.6% drop on v1wk2.

Saki Zenkoku v2 adds 525 BDs, total 4,520. 26.6% drop on v1wk2. Too much drop. Sadness. ;_;

Fall update:
Kuroko s2 v4 sells 7071/7486, total 14,557. Almost 4k down from v3 wk1, but slightly ahead of v2wk1. You never know what kind of wk2 Kurobas is going to have, so I’m not guessing where this volume ends up!

Infinite Stratos 2 v6 sells 9610/2271, total 11,881.

Gundam BF v5 DVD sells 566. If we define “v1” sales as BD Box 1 + avg of DVD 1-5 (out of 9), v1 is now 9,013.

LitBus Refrain v4 sells 6732/1246, total 7,978. Bit more of a drop than previous volumes.

Non Non v5 sells 6083/569, total 6,652. Little bit more of a drop than I’d like to see at this point but maybe it’ll make it up in wk2. Still easily over 8k average.

Strike the Blood v4 sells 4277/992, total 5,269.

Log Horizon v4 sells 2812/716, total 3,528.

Valvrave s2 v5 sells 2600/760, total 3,360.

Machine Doll v5 sells 2500/604, total 3,104.

Magi s2 v4 sells 1269/1808, total 3,077.

NagiAsu v5 sells 2,902 BDs, DVDs do not rank. Actually the best first week BD sales so far.

White Album 2 v5 sells 2,814 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Freezing s2 v5 sells 1481/483, total 1,964.

Tokyo Ravens v5 sells 1,483 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Walkure v5 sells 1,356 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Yuushibu v5 sells 1,236 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Noucome v5, final volume, sells 824 BDs, DVDs do not rank. Series average: 936

Golden Time v5 sells 708 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Yowapedal v5 adds 497/519, total 5,654.

Past seasons:
Monogatari v7 sells 30277/3671, total 33,948. Seems to be continuing the trend of losing roughly 2-3k per arc.

OVAs, Movies, Boxsets etc:
SAO EE sells 16208/3720, total 19,928. More than 5k below the lowest-selling s1 disc, though no idea if that’s indicative of how s2 will sell.

Gundam SEED Destiny BD Box v4 sells 8,925. Movies it to #6 on the BD Box list and probably #5 in the end, but of course that’s by total sales in yen so a 4-cour, 4-box release has an advantage (hence why SEED s1 boxes are #2).

Mushishi Special sells 4660/1241, total 5,901.

Gundam W Endless Waltz sells 3,523.

Maison Ikkoku BD Box v2 sells 3,359.

Madoka Hangyaku adds 2035/576 BDs and 735 DVDs, total 171,631.

  1. Tiago says:

    Good job nisekoi, hanging above 5k. Hopefully it can leg out to 6… But the drop wasn’t dramatic as some were thinking.

  2. mk03 says:

    No news on the latest volume of TR?

    Also, not bad v2 performance for Nisekoi. Also, I wouldn’t be surprised if the reason why SAO EE’s sales are like that is if, since it’s mostly a recap, not everyone would bother and they would just wait for season 2.

    • something says:

      Tokyo Ravens? You know its volumes sell under 2k, so if the preliminary BD threshold this week is 3.5k, naturally it won’t rank until the full list.

  3. stardf29 says:

    It is interesting that Mushishi is still doing fairly well, eight years after the first season and in an era when shows of its type are typically not huge sellers (though I’m not sure shows of its type were huge sellers back in 2005/2006, either). I guess sales of the second season will show just how much of a fan base of buyers it has…

    • Masterman says:

      Mononoke and Natsume Yuujinchou are probably the shows that are the closest to Mushishi, and all of them managed to break 10k.

  4. Ghostalker says:

    Only 735 DVD added for Madoka Magica? We don’t have anything from the BD side?

    • something says:

      The threshold this week was over 3.5k. It only added 3.2k BDs last week, and wk4 is generally going to sell less than wk3, so it probably added ~2.5k more this week and will rank in the full list. It’s going to be much more front-loaded than the first two movies.

      • something says:

        Actually I need to reword that, it’s not that Movie 3 will be more front loaded in percentage terms, but it won’t rank nearly as long as Movies 1-2 did.

        In terms of total discs sold, Movies 1-2 moved 90,469 opening week and 114,789⁽¹⁾ total so far, i.e. 78.8% in the first week.

        Movie 3 moved 138,212 opening week and 169,020 total, which is 81.7% in the first week. In the end, it may even have a lower first week percentage than Movies 1-2. In large part that’s because its second week was pretty strong (10% the size of wk1, proportionally larger than Movies 1-2).

        But Movies 1-2 have ranked into week 38 which is the longest anything related to a late night franchise has ever ranked, to my knowledge. Movie 3 will likely not rank much more than 10 weeks, unless brought back by some combination of high discount sale, TV airing, and low threshold week, like sometimes happened to Eva for a while.

        ⁽¹⁾ Its sales are recorded as 110k not 114k because Movies 1-2 were sold as separate releases on DVD, thus the total is calculated as BD RE + BD LE + (DVD Avg)

        • Ghostalker says:

          Thanks for the reply, and here I thought Rebellion will sell more disc having sold more on theaters than let say Macross Frontier, K-ON movies, at least 200K. Macross Frontier only sold 310m Yen in theaters but took 210K on disc sold (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/pub?key=0Ajj_IfkmgvF0dFJ2REk5UFBpNlFzeHl2b0gxYnF3Mnc&gid=16). That’s life.

          • something says:

            Macross is tough to compare to others, because the overwhelmingly majority of its sales came in the BD + game bundles. The games were supposed to be fairly low content and thus it’s commonly believed that this didn’t inflate movie sales too much. But just how much is something we can only speculate on. Would they have sold the same as standalone BDs? If less, how much less? Probably not enough to constitute a radical change, but it’s still something to consider when comparing head to head.

  5. Anon says:

    >Onimonogatari 33,948

    And here I thought the boost its ranking got on Amazon after the announcement of the unaired OP would break the declining trend. Speculating that Hanamonogatari will continue like this, S2+α will probably end up between 35/38K average. Not a bad drop for a 2-cour show but still pretty poor for Monogatari standards.

    • something says:

      Let’s see…
      45,890 – Arc 1
      42,211 – Arc 2 (down 3,679)
      40,633 – Arc 3 (down 1,578)

      Comparing arc starters as of their second weeks when the bulk of sales have come in:
      v1wk2 vs v3wk2, 8.4% drop
      v5wk2 vs v3wk2, 3.7% drop
      v7wk2 vs v5wk2, ? find out next week!

      I’m guessing the arc 2→3 drop will be closer to how later arcs drop than the arc 1→2 drop. If that’s the case, going down 1.5-2k per arc would land it between 39k and 40k, using current DVD/BD split.

      As far as Monogatari goes overall, we had Nise dropping 23.1% from Bake, and a 39.5k average for Second would be a 34.8% drop from Nise.

      But it’s also 12 discs vs 5, and Second is still on track to pull in well in excess of ¥3 billion, which would be the highest grossing two cour series (initial releases only) in the 2000-present era. The only higher grossing series would be Gundam SEED and Destiny, which are both twice as long as Monogatari Second. Right now the top 5 by initial release MSRP (minus tax) gross are:

      ¥5.36bn Kidou Senshi Gundam SEED Destiny [50ep]
      ¥4.57bn Kidou Senshi Gundam SEED [50ep]
      ¥3.39bn Bakemonogatari [15ep]
      ¥3.07bn Shingeki no Kyojin [25ep]
      ¥2.92bn Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica [12ep]

      Monogatari Second ought to be cleanly ahead of Shingeki (due to being 3 additional discs) and around Bake level. The highest two-cour series at the moment are:

      ¥3.07bn Shingeki no Kyojin
      ¥2.75bn K-ON!!
      ¥2.58bn Macross Frontier
      ¥2.38bn Sword Art Online
      ¥2.31bn Lucky Star

      It’ll be clear them all pretty easily, barring some precipitous drop.

      So I guess while it’s not amazing to make the same amount of money as a previous season that was half as long (but also keep in mind, costs don’t scale 1:1 as you add more episodes, some but not all facets of production should benefit from economies of scale), it’s pretty easy to overlook that when it’s still three billion yen! The franchise is looking at roughly ¥10bn in DVD/BD sales alone, counting all releases (Bake, Bake Box, Nise, Neko, Second). Just rom what is reported via Oricon anyway… adjusting for undercounting would put it closer to ¥12bn.

      And we’ve still (allegedly) got Kizu and likely Final season coming. Pretty crazy.

  6. sinderblock says:

    Well, Hamatora is dragging its feet. Maybe they should have use that 3DS game’s plot line for the anime instead.

  7. something says:

    Today is super crazy so I won’t have time to do the post until tonight but here are a few quick highlights (or lowlights because \~Winter 2014~/) for new shows:

    2,339 – Hamatora v1
    1,206 – Nobunaga the Fool v1
    1,169 – Space Dandy v1 (only BD ranked)
    443 – Nobunagun box 1 (only BD ranked)

    • Siliziumleben says:

      Really sad sales for Nobunagun and Space Dandy. I had fun with both and imported them, but hey….with such low sales for Nobunagun it is safe to assume that I am the only one in Germany who owns this Box Set xD

    • Anonymous says:

      Dunno if you’ll see this before you update the main post, but with exception of Nobunagun, the rest of those are all BD+DVD? So there were Dandy DVD numbers below the cutoff?

      • something says:

        Oh for some reason I thought Space Dandy was BD only, but I see DVDs on Amazon, so yeah they were below the cutoff then. Also, ETA to leaving work and being able to update this and watch anime = argh I dont know.

        • something says:

          Yeaaaaaaah I won’t be able to do the post at all until tomorrow night, today is conspiring against me in every way. In the meantime, I’ve dumped the raw untranslated text into the post for anyone interested.

          • Anonymous says:

            Oh man, I just noticed that Super Sonico nosedive. Vol. 2 DVD didn’t even rank and the BD barely sold more than the vol.1 DVD did its first week.

            • something says:

              Yeah, expected, but sucks. It’s a legitimately good slice of life show, which I almost would have imported if I didn’t need to buy so many copies of Sakura Trick in Winter… though I guess the heavy use of CGI in the last episode performance would have resulted in me canceling any orders anyway. Great episode otherwise, but that was really appalling.

    • mk03 says:

      >1,169 – Space Dandy v1 (only BD ranked)

      Won’t really matter now that it’s getting a second season. No one did not expect that the show was more popular in North America than in Japan, since the West was pretty much its intended market.

      Also, it’s already Friday where I live, and normally the full sales list is out on Thursdays. No new additions to the sales list yet?

      • something says:

        Read my last few comments. (And the bottom of the post)

          A Mamoru Miyano concert disc did better than Tokyo Ravens. I understand that Mamoru Miyano is extremely popular in Japan, but still, wow.

          Love Live still stronk.

          • something says:

            Concert DVD/BDs are the biggest selling thing on disc next to anime. It’s not strange for a modestly popular concert to outsell a lot of anime – especially one with really low sales like Tokyo Ravens.

    • Sandf5 says:

      54 – *1,157 **1,157 **1 バディ・コンプレックス 完全生産限定版 2

      BuddyCom Vol.2 improved 17 copies from vol 1 week 1, but that just what was reported to Oricon, while i noticed since Vol 1, Bandai Visual sells the BD LE with their own special bonus in their Bandai Visual shop, so we will never know how many it sold because Bandai Visual doesn’t report to Oricon.

      • something says:

        Most distributors have their own stores (a lot of which don’t report to Oricon), so BuddyCom isn’t unique here. You see people bring up KyoAni Shop a lot in this context. It’s generally accepted tat these retailers don’t account for particularly large amounts, not enough to fundamentally change a show’s fortunes anyway. Even Aniplex’s shop (which does actually report to Oricon) is estimated at, oh, maaaaaaaaybe about 3% of Monogatari Second sales despite exclusive per-arc artboxes being sold there. Unless a store that doesn’t report to Oricon has an exclusive event ticket, it’s unlikely to make a big difference.

        • Sandf5 says:

          Well, the bonus is main cast’s audio commentary, the drama CD from usual LE barely feature the main cast, if i want to buy the BD and have Bandai account i would rather buy it in Bandai shop with same price but get extra bonus.

          Not in the meaning of changing of the show’s fortune, but if some people start to compare it with the show in similar range of sales from 1k-2k, having other stores with LE special guarantee it’s actually sold more than that.

          • something says:

            Possibly, it’s just really hard to say. Maybe instead of 1.1k it’s selling… 1.4k? 1.5k? I think when you’re at that point it almost doesn’t matter, but yeah direct comparisons between two shows should always be very careful to include as many caveats as possible. No two anime releases are ever exactly alike. Especially when exclusive bonuses start coming into play.

        • something says:

          Though I should add that Oricon undercounting is a real thing and can be especially significant for very low sellers. I mean, if BuddyCom sells 150 BDs in its second week but doesn’t rank, that’s like 10% of sales right there, nevermind any sales at retailers Oricon doesn’t cover. But this is an issue that all shows face to varying degrees, so we have to just consider it as canceling out when comparing shows unless there’s some really special circumstance. Oricon is still the most level playing field we have (and also the only one).

  8. something says:

    Full list is finally up.

    I’ll have the ranking summary up next.

  9. rederoin says:

    kamisama no asobi could have an even worse drop than Sonico. Just like Sonico back in winter, its ‘estimated’ drop is at 85%(from 6.1k to 0.9k). Lots of female otaku buying it only for the even ticket. Its actually kinda funny how close those 2 are as far as stalker estimates go.

    For comparison(V1 -> V2),

    6.1k -> 0.9k kamisama no asobi on 2 May(down -85%)
    6.3k -> 1.1k Super Sonico on 3 March(down -83%)
    6.5k -> 1.0k Super Sonico on 17 March(down -85%)

      While it should indeed drop a lot, KamiAsobi’s Stalker prediction is inflated by the couple days it spent in the top 100 (top 50 even) right after the ticket announcement. Its prediction will drop like a rock over the next week as those days drop off and its time down below #200 takes over.

        Probably, but unlike Sonico, I doubt v1 will be overestimated at time of release.

        • rederoin says:

          Sonico v1 was overestimated by 45%, but v2 only by 15%. So I think the estimated drop for Kami was end up being more accurate. Even if v1 drop down to around 4.4~ thats still put its around a 80% drop.

          Its a bit hard to know what kind of drop Sonico had though, since the DVDs did not rank, but the BDs only dropped by 74% from v1w1.

    Didn’t Nobufool vol 1-2 also comes out with event tickets?

    >Nobunagun v1 sells 443 BDs, DVDs do not rank. Being released as two boxes.

    Well this probably sucks for the MC’s seiyuu/show’s theme song performer, as she was a total rookie coming into the series. Has she gotten anything else afterwards though? I read somewhere that, at least at some point, she already had a few roles lined up for her in future seasons, but has that been confirmed?

    I also find it amusing that Nobunagun and Nobunaga the Fool, two anime which had similar names, tanked in sales.

      Mutou Shiori as Ogura Shio is her first and so far only seiyuu role in Nobunagun. Sad to see it sell so poorly though I didn’t buy it either. The manga continues in this months Earth Star. I did buy the OST/ED CD.

      Brynhildr is the same format from VAP this season. Two boxes and OST/ED and OP CD I think. Does VAP do uncensored CDs?

        Any idea though if she’s planned to do any more roles in the near future? I don’t want her to be the next Ayako Yoshitani.

        • hpulley says:

          Ayako Yoshitani was an actress who tried being a seiyuu. She is still an actress and is in a Tv drama right now. Not looking like she is doing more seiyuu work but I’m not sure she ever said she wouldn’t. In the commentary she said she was looking forward to Nazo no Kanojo X 2.

          Mutou Shiori is young. She has done one seiyuu role and one live action role. Who knows which way her career will go…

          Both have unique voices as seiyuu go.

    Poor Sonico. They should have probably just have had a figma with every volume.

      Getting people to plunk down ~¥12000 once is one thing, but you can’t really get away with charging ¥12000 for all six volumes, no matter how much people may want the figures.
