Other releases (concerts etc)

Interesting news: Oricon made changes and we now have a Tuesday animation-only top 20 ranking alongside the all-genre top 20, so we’ll get a bit more anime data in the preliminary lists now. There are a couple other changes (like breaking out anime-related music into its own list) I haven’t fully gone through yet.

Summer update:
Kusoshitsuji s3 v1 sells 3553/3969, total 7,522. Underestimated 120.3% on BD, 45.7% on DVD.

Bakumatsu Rock v1 sells 2585/1283, total 3,868. Underestimated 45% on BD but actually overestimated 5.9% on DVD, pretty deadly for a title aimed at women and having an event ticket. This one looks like a bust assuming later vols drop as much as you’d expect.

Spring update:
Ping Pong sells 2756/788, total 3,544 as a one-shot box. Underestimated 12.8% on BD, 111.8% on DVD.

Wixoss v1 sells 3,169 BDs, DVDs do not rank. Overestimated 34.8%. Might have been almost dead on if the high price penalty had been applied.

Love Live! s2 v3 sells 41,482 as a BD-only release.
v2 adds 700, total 52,632 in wk6.

Jojo v2 sells 9398/2356, total 11,754. Down only 3% on v1 so at least it might be internally consistent even if the drop from s1 is large.

Mahouka v2 sells 8752/2453, total 11,205. That beats v1wk1 by a sizable 8.7%, which isnt trivial for a 10k+ seller. While it’s probably just more front-loaded, it only needs to add about 1.2k to beat v1’s total so this could actually rise. [Edit: Ah, it’s just because v2 had the event ticket. Amazon didn’t have it in their item title so I missed that.]

Gochiusa v3 sells 8068/1069, total 9,137. Only 5 copies below v2wk1, and all from the event ticket drop on DVD (it’s actually up yet again for BD wk1). I don’t know how wk2 will shake out, but if it’s decent… ahhhhh, the hopes for 10k are still alive, though I refuse to get my hopes up too high!

Nogenora v3 sells 5941/1250, total 7,191. Down 7.5% on v2wk1. Not bad at all considering v2 had the event ticket. I hope it can stabilize here and average around 8k.

Mekakushi v5 sells 3202/2689, total 5,891. First volume with no wk1 drop, in fact it’s up a little. Might it stabilize here, at least for a few volumes? As ever, we need to see if it has another ~1.6k wk2, wk2 is everything for Mekakushi.

Date A Live II v3 sells 4084/928, total 5,012.

KamiAsobi v3 sells 1420/1901, total 3,321.

Daimidaler v2 sells 1,455 BDs, DVDs did not rank. Down 6% on v1.

Chaika v3 sells 1,183 BDs, DVDs did not rank.

Imocho v6, final volume, sells 1,160 BDs, DVDs did not rank. Series average: 1,257.

Escha&Logy v3 sells 696 BDs, DVDs did not rank.

Mangaka-san v3 sells 609 BDs, DVDs did not rank.

Nanana v3 sells 504 BDs, DVDs did not rank.

Haikyuu v2 adds 1972/2304, total 25,271. A markedly better wk2 helps make up a bit of the wk1 gap. 10.3% down on v1wk2.

Isshukan v3 adds 383 BDs, total 3,602.

Past seasons:
Kurobas s2 v8 sells 6990/7065, total 14,055. Up a bit from v7wk1.

Strike the Blood v8, final volume, sells 4646/1179, total 5,825. Up 7.6% on v7. Series average: 5,831.

Nisekoi v6 sells 3697/1088, total 4,785.

Witch Craft Works v6, final volume, sells 3,838 as a BD-only release. Series average: 4,171 and should finish at 4.2k after wk2.

Log Horizon v8, final volume, sells 2914/746, total 3,660. Series average: 3,812. After v2 (which only dropped 6.2% and mostly just because v1 squeezed in two really small additional weeks), no volume dropped more than 2.5% on previous. That’s pretty crazy! Not high sales, but not a broadcast slot that cares about disc sales. I hope the consistency continues into season two, but overall, doing well.

NagiAsu v9, final volume, sells 3,002 BDs, DVDs do not rank. Series average: 3,717. Normally unremarkable, but impressive for a show that started with a 1,144 v1wk1!

D-Frag! v6, final volume, sells 1,992 BDs, DVDs do not rank. Series average: 2,561.

Sekai Seifuku v6, final volume, sells 1,891 BDs, DVDs do not rank. Series average: 2,122.

Magi s2 v8 sells 731/881, total 1,612.

Buddycom v6, final volume, sells 1,270 as a BD-only release. Series average: 1,161.

Hamatora v4, final volume, sells 572/671, total 1,243. Series average: 1,828.

Space Dandy v5 sells 860 BDs, DVDs did not rank.

Gundam BF v9 DVD, final volume, sells 571. As mentioned before, BDs did most of the work, and came in boxsets that finished way back in June. This finally wraps up the DVD singles side. Series average: 8,940.

Nobufool v5 sells 444 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Chuunibyou Ren v6 adds 681 BDs, total 6,418.

Mikakunin v6, final volume, adds 456 BDs, total 5,673. Series average: 6,225.

Yowapedal v9 adds 437 BDs, total 4,680.

Saki Zenkoku-hen v6 adds 386 BDs, total 3,862.

WUG v6, final volume, adds 472, total 2,548 as a BD-only release. Series average: 2,548.

OVAs, Movies, Boxsets etc:
Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi movie sells 3681/4274, total 7,955.

SoraOto Final sells 4398/858, total 5,256.

AnoNatsu BD box + OVA sells 2,503, not bad for a 7k seller. I was super confused to see the standalone release of the OVA not rank at all, but it actually doesn’t come out until November 27. Wow, making people who don’t want to buy the boxset wait three months… guess they wanted those extra box sales from impatient fans.

AIR BD Box sells 771. This series thing has seen like three BD boxes now (some before we got BD data released by Oricon unfortunately) so not surprised it didn’t move.

Haruhi s1 BD Box sells 696. Talk about an ignored release… 50k shipped (34k Oricon) for the previous boxset, down to under 700. There’s just no market for it given the full two-season BD box is still available, that so many bought it already (most ever for a re-release BD box), and this box isn’t particularly cheap, and there’s been nothing new for the franchise in years besides some pachinko game.

Shana III BD Box sells 621.

Garupan OVA adds 374 BDs, total 44,970 Oh so close to that 45k.

Yama no Susume s1 BD Box adds 395, total 2,527.

  1. Considering the box wasn’t particularly cheap for a full series (compared to, say, Gatchaman Crowds), I’m pretty happy to see Ping Pong put up 3k and a half. It was a really enjoyable show (and it’s a handy bit of ammo in the belt to use against the “art doesn’t sell” crowd).

  2. rederoin says:

    >Wixoss v1 sells 3,169 BDs, DVDs do not rank. Overestimated 34.8%. Might have been almost dead on if the high price penalty had been applied.

    Who knew, my random guess based on nothing was actually correct(33% less points), with this kind of luck I should enter the lottery.

  3. musouka says:

    Excellent news for Ping Pong! I’m sure that’s more than anyone on the production committee thought it would sell initially. Other than that, nothing for me to get excited about next week.

  4. Exukvera says:

    It’s now proven that the hell of a butler can still pack a punch.

  5. something says:

    Updated for the full list, ranking summary tomorrow.

  6. none says:

    I notice you put Space Dandy on Spring anime, Space Dandy season 1 was a winter anime and ended on Volume 5, Space Dandy 2nd season starts on volume 6 is a summer anime. It is split cour.

    Buddy Complex has one more BD for a 2 episodes finale TV special on fall, how will you put it?

    • something says:

      I have SD in my list as Winter, I just pasted it into the wrong section here.

      As for Buddycom, are either of the eps on the disc of the TV episodes? I guess since it’s coming out right after vol 6 I might count it either way. I guess I’ll have to look at how they’re branding it, it might be counted as a special instead.

  7. Chipp12 says:

    >Sekai Seifuku v6, final volume, sells 1,891 BDs, DVDs do not rank. Series average: 2,122.
    There will be another volume though, should have 13th episode in it.

    • mk03 says:

      Doesn’t change the fact it still flopped despite a huge push from Aniplex.

    • something says:

      Hrm, I’m leaning towards counting this and the Buddy Complex disc as specials, not part of the main TV release average. I know final volumes of TV series often have just an OVA on them, but these are coming out 2 and 3 months after the TV series releases end, respectively, and do not maintain volume numbering. I think I’d rather treat them as OVAs like A Channel +smile or Hidamari SP, etc.

      It’s always tricky though because there’s also stuff like Monogatari Second Season, which they made a point of including as part of the main series, but there’s also a two month gap there. Can’t say either way about volume numbering though because they did arc numbering. I’m including that in the second season TV series average based on some discussion with others, but obviously this is never easy to define.


      • Hacchi says:

        Sekai Seikufu is really an OVA eventhough it has 13th episode in it, but Buddy Complex is meant as continuation of first series, it is not an OVA because they air it on TV before release it on BD, it is a sequel like a 2nd season but instead of making a full season they only create 2-episodes.

        • something says:

          My general rule is going to be that, barring a highly unusual circumstance like Monogatari, which will be taken case-by-case, a volume needs to either 1) contain a minimum of one episode that aired on TV as part of the initial weekly run or 2) continue volume numbering. Only then will I count it as an additional volume, otherwise it gets recorded as a standalone special. This can result in similar very cases going different ways, but some kind of clear definition is needed.

          In any case it wouldn’t make much difference in the averages for either show.

  8. scineram says:

    AIR BD Box sells 771.

    Haruhi s1 BD Box sells 696.

    Shana III BD Box sells 621.

    Is Kadokawa desperate?

    • That doesn’t so much strike me as desperate as it does greedy/mildly stupid. You’d think they’d at least attempt to have something new for the boxes, but no dice, supposedly.
      Though, I HAVE heard that the Haruhi BD box has a new quality (Not sure if remastering but the video definitely LOOKS better from the side by side comparison I saw). That kind of strikes me as unnecessary though, and if you really wanted to see a 2006 TV Anime in slightly better color Im not sure a whole new BD box would be worth it.. I’ll never get over how badly the Haruhi franchise fucked itself over with S2 and generally not capitalizing on its popularity when it had it.

      • something says:

        You forget that the wildly successful Shoushitsu and the wildly successful first BD box both came out after the “fucked over” seasson two. As did a record-breaking print run for the one[?] novel (well double-release) that premiered after. The Haruhi franchise remained highly profitable after the second season.

        There was just little reason for anyone to buy this particular box, and it’s been a couple years since the stuff mentioned above. The franchise had gone more or less comatose, with just pachinko (which could be big, but not in the fan circles we mostly follow) and an artbook.

        As for capitalizing on the popularity, well, it all comes back to the author’s inability to write much more and Kadokawa’s model seeing very little benefit from funding more animation: http://ultimatemegax.wordpress.com/2013/06/20/the-reasoning-behind-a-lack-of-haruhi-s3/

    • I mean, it doesn’t cost them much beyond like $4/disk to physically print the BDs, since they already have the content made. It’s a safe play on something they already have the rights to. It’s a pretty marginal thing, yeah, but money is money, and the profits might offset for the cost of paying another young author or two.

    • something says:

      Only Haruhi is Kadokawa. AIR is Pony Canyon. Shana is NBC Universal (aka Geneon).

      • mk03 says:

        Maybe he/she was referring to the fact that the Shana novels were published by Kadokawa.

        • something says:

          Almost every (otaku light) novel is published by Kadokawa these days, feels like. But the decision to do a BD box would primarily come through the video side of things.
