Summer update:
Free! s2 v3 sells 11636/8673, total 20,309. The event ticket boost was on the mild side. v1-2 sold 17.1-17.8k wk1, so there’s clearly some boost, just nothing super crazy. Might hit 23k at best by wk3, but at least 22k. Assuming v4 pulls in about 20k total, it’ll be sitting at just under 21k average after v4. That’s cutting it really close for a 20k average. Assuming v5 won’t sell more than 18.5k, and v6 maybe 17k, v7 would need to be well over 20k to secure it, and I’m not confident about the OVA having that much of an effect. At least 50/50 odds of it falling just short.

Ao Haru Ride v3 sells 645/855, total 1,500.

Akame ga Kill v2 sells 1481/366, total 1,847. Plummets 41.4% from v1wk1, after he drop from v1’s extras.

Rail Wars v3 sells 1447/294, total 1,741.

Sabagebu! v3 sells 1,232 as a BD-only release.

P4GA v3 adds 486 BDs, total 7,993. At 10.7k avg after 3 of 7 vols and not hitting 8k in that third vol I think we can safely drop this from the list of possible 10k average titles.

Sailor Moon v2 adds 310 BDs, total 3,041. v2 DVD comes out next month.

Spring update:
Kantoku Fuyuki Todoki sells 2,426 as a one-shot DVD-only box. Super overestimated, 50%.

Love Live! s2 v6 sells 30,960. Unexpectedly sharp drop, probably going to have like a 10k wk2. Maybe some some stock/distro issues.
v4 adds 332, total 49,789 in wk9.
v5 adds 640, total 44,894 in wk4.

Haikyuu!! v5 sells 9101/7516, total 16,617.

Isshukan v6, final volume, sells 2442/496, total 2,938. Series average: 3,718. May jump another 50 or so with wk2.

Akuma no Riddle v6 sells 895/269, total 1,164. Bleh, well, slightly up from v5 and at least it’ll average four digits. Sigh.

Gaworare v6, final volume, sells 636 BDs, DVDs do not rank. Series average: 1,026.

Past seasons:
Space Dandy v8 sells 720 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

OVAs, Movies, Boxsets etc:
K-ON!! BD Box sells 8,068. Down compared to the 11,224 wk1 of s1, but there’s less people who needed to double dip to upgrade from DVD to BD this time, and it’s more expensive, and it’s a sequel anyway. Should still top 9k total, very good.

Gargantia OVA v1 sells 5,268 as a BD-only release.

Buddycom special sells 1,495 as a BD-only release.

Aa Megami-sama s2 BD Box sells 822.

Imas Cinderella Girls promo disc adds 444, total 20,757.

Mouretsu movie adds 859 BDs, total 10,888. Yeaaaah, not even a 1k wk2, not surprised. Ugh.

      No one cares.

      • something says:

        But I do. Yes it’s a very minor distinction, but the foundation of this site is being very anal about very niche things very few people care about, so hey, I’ll try to be accurate where I can. I don’t mind corrections like that at all.

      • hpulley says:

        Interestingly, and deservedly IMO, it sold a good bit more than the TV series. 1.5K vs. 1.1K is not really that exciting but I am not surprised, in fact it selling more would not have surprised me; I thought about buying it too. I enjoyed the special and I preferred the 90-minute condensed version of the 1st season that they put out on Nico Nico Douga the past weekend. Less can be more and in this case for me at least, the less “coupling… acception!” and the more “Hinaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!” the better it is. They replayed the special as well and honestly for a 135 minute ‘tv movie’ it is entertaining.

  3. FinalFan says:

    Numbers too low for Nanoha A’s box in week #3?

  4. Marcelo M says:


    I wonder if you add the quantity sold for BD-BOX in the average sales of individual volumes? For example, “K-ON!!” had 39.385 average, and now the BOX sold 8,068. The new total would be 47.453.

    Another thing is about the re-releases. You add the amount of them in the previous average? This year the re-release of the first season of “Love Live!” sold little more than 4,000 on the average. This amount is already included in the average last year (29.190)?

    Congratulations on your work. It really is very interesting.

    Thank you and see you soon.

    • something says:

      “I wonder if you add the quantity sold for BD-BOX in the average sales of individual volumes?”

      When I calculate averages, I only use the original release. Re-releases are not counted, because while every show gets one release, not all get re-releases. What I do instead is, at least for the 10k+ sellers, include a column that shows total sales from re-releases. So in https://www.someanithing.com/1 K-ON! s1 shows 43,883 as the original average and 12,709 as the re-release total. K-ON!! will be similar after I update the list this weekend.

      “Another thing is about the re-releases. You add the amount of them in the previous average?”
      Nope, all re-releases (of which BD boxes are just one kind) after initial release has concluded are rolled up into the same “re-releases” column, which as mentioned above, I only show for 10k+ sellers right now.

      “Congratulations on your work. It really is very interesting.”
      Glad you find it useful.

      • Marcelo M says:

        Thank you for explanation. I had been in doubt if those re-release numbers were already included in the average or not. Now I get it.

        Now I would like to know if you intend to make a list of only BD and DVD sales of movies. I know there is already a list with the box office in theaters, but it would be interesting to know whether a title that had a good crowd also sells well.

        Thank you for your attention.

        • something says:

          I only track a small number of movie disc sales so I’ve never done a chart for them. Maybe in the future, but I’m really not sure, the focus of my sales tracking has always been heavily towards TV series.

      Your numbers are off there. Season 1 averaged 29,194 with the original volumes. The re-releases averaged 5,938.

    So has Pony Canyon now presumably wrung every last possible drop they can out of the K-On juggernaut, or is there still something else left they can yet release?

    • something says:

      With the music and anime now all through re-releases, that should be it in terms anime-related media. I don’t see any reason to expect the concerts or movie to get dedicated re-releases.

      Of course merchandise will continue to come out basically forever.

  6. mk03 says:

    >Sabagebu! v3 sells 1,232 as a BD-only release.
    Honestly this is rather sad. I guess Japanese don’t appreciate toilet humor.

    • hpulley says:

      Shoujo manga adapted anime doesn’t seem to sell well, whether it is romance based as usual or survival game based with lots of humor. I bought it but few others did… ah well… what else can we do?

      • Progeusz says:

        It’s like they have curse put on them. Shoujo adaptation? No BD sales. Meanwhile shoujo-like but from shounen-like magazine Gekkan Shoujo from same season sells great.

        • AnimePhoenix says:

          I know right? Shoujo-like stuff from shounen magazines sells ok to great(Noragami, Gekkan Shoujo, Ishhuukan Friends) but anything from a shoujo magazine? Doomed to fail.

          Its so unfair.

          • something says:

            I think it shows how wildly different the female manga-buying fanbase is from the female anime-buying fanbase. The majority of anime popular (by measure of disc sales) with women are either:
            • otoge, so no manga original (Utapri, Hakuouki)
            • adaptations of manga running in shounen publications (Shingeki, Haikyuu, Kurobas, Gintama and many others)
            • original, occasionally (Free)

            But actual adaptations of print media running in publications aimed primarily at teen and adult women? They just don’t seem to appeal to most of the women who buy DVDs and BDs.

            • hpulley says:

              What’s odd though is it seems that some of the intended audience ARE introduced to the manga through the anime as many shoujo manga get sizeable increases in manga sales after the anime runs. So it is somehow a useful advertising vehicle for the print media but not for the anime itself.

              Which is why it also doesn’t seem to matter how cheaply they do the animation or how poorly they adapt it to anime. In fact it almost seems to be the reverse, the worse the adaptation is the more likely they are to decide to read the manga instead.

              • musouka says:

                Yep, pretty much. Most shoujo adaptations do not provide enough “added value” to justify spending money on them when you could just buy the manga. I wouldn’t mind seeing more LN aimed at women animated, though…

                • AnimePhoenix says:

                  “I wouldn’t mind seeing more LN aimed at women animated, though…”

                  Same here. Saiunkoku Monogatari was great and it didn’t sell THAT horribly and I’d like to see how the current female LN audience is like. Would they buy an anime of an LN aimed at them? Would the LN get a good boost like some male oriented LN get? Female oriented LNs usually aren’t big sellers compared to male oriented ones but they’re definitely there.

                  Its more like an otoge than a novel but Brothers Conflict started from being a novel aimed at females. And I remember that after the anime, I saw the novel rank for the first time and sell ~30k(though it was in the manga list, I don’t know why).

              • something says:

                Yep, “buying” was the critical word. You’ll get shoujo fans watching (at least some of) the show, but the kind of fan with the disc-buying mentality doesn’t seem to have much presence in shoujo manga fandom. Yet another reason why everyone has to be careful about judging success purely by discs.

                • hpulley says:

                  Indeed! E.g. Ao Haru Ride sold 4 million manga volumes this year, double last year’s 2 million. Who cares about disc sales when you increase your print run like that…

            • AnimePhoenix says:

              It definitely does. Otoge fans, fujoshi and fans of shoujo manga. Shoujo manga fans watch the anime but don’t buy the anime no matter how good they are.

              Yet you have something like Amnesia which was a wreck sell better than a really good shoujo like Soredemo Sekai wa Ustukushii…

      • mk03 says:

        Is Sabagebu really supposed to be shoujo? I didn’t watch it (although I created its Wikipedia article), but from what I have seen it seemed to be male oriented. It even has pantyshots. Unless it’s a shoujo manga but the anime was intended for a male audience.

        • something says:

          It literally ran in Nakayoshi, which I believe is the oldest currently running shoujo manga magazine (1954). It’s like, the ur-shoujo publication, at least in the modern understanding.

          Certainly Sabagebu the anime bears little resemblance to what we think of as typical shoujo, but the intended manga demographic is as shoujo as it gets.

  7. something says:

    Just FYI probably quite late with the full list tomorrow (assuming the data even gets released) unless it comes out early enough for me to do it before heading out for holiday-related obligations.

  8. peeyaj says:

    Just want to ask question regarding Free! ES..

    Can you clarify whether Free! ES is a sales success compared to other Kyo-Ani in-house productions?


    • something says:

      s1 averaged 29.0k, while s2 will average around 19-20k. The next closest is Chuu2koi s1 at 15.5k, and then a big gap way down at 6.9k for Chu2koi s2. 4.4k for Kyoukai, 3.7k for Tamako. Free also sold more music CDs than all the others combined and multiplied a few times, and the original novel for Free (High Speed) is the only KA Esuma title that’s ever sold enough to rank on Oricon’s novel list. It also appears to be way more of a merchandise powerhouse than any of the others.

      So yeah, Free as a whole, s2 included, is by far the most successful of the in-house CTFK works. It’s not even close.

      • AnimePhoenix says:

        What do you think are the chances of KyoAni introducing another female-oriented novel to anime like Free!?

        • something says:

          So far I’m not aware of any of the KA Esuma titles being female-targeted like High Speed, so it might be a while. Of course we still know *nothing* about Violet Evergarden (i.e. the first entry the KA Esuma judges actually thought was good), so maybe? And there’s always the fully original option.

  9. something says:

    Okay it got out with plenty of time to spare. Updated for the full ranking.
