Only 18k for a Ghibli movie seems incredibly low, but I guess nobody cares about non-Miyazaki Ghibli? Also kinda nuts how off Amazon’s ranking is vs real sales, the BD estimate was half what Stalker estimated. DVD was quite close though. Pretty stark split between formats in terms of who is shopping at Amazon!

You can see the holidays starting to have their effect. A lot of this week was taken up by non-anime (Disney and such) and he threshold is over 600 despite very few new releases. Just gonna get worse later in the month!

    Rank 93 sold 458 BDs, rank 123 sold 381 BDs. Incoming medium-high BD100 threshold again. And it’ll only get worse as we get closer to pre-Christmas and Christmas week.

    I think you forgot about “Rakuen Tsuihou Expelled from Paradise” in your upcoming releases list.

    • Anon says:

      The last volume of Kawaisou comes with an unaired episode and Stalker estimates it at 2.7K, should give it a noticeable boost.

    • something says:

      I definitely didn’t forget anything.

      • Anonymous says:

        I’m aware of your… strong opinions on the method of animation used for Expelled From Paradise, and I don’t expect any analysis of its numbers of any sort, but you’re not going to hold back its numbers from the main chart solely out of spite… are you?

        • something says:

          “Solely out of”… it being out of scope for this site just like Frozen or Stand By Me Doraemon or anything else that’s quite simply not anime and therefore irrelevant to what I’ve created and maintained this site to do. If you didn’t see the comment thread in the box office post, the gist is: never expect to see anything full-CGI here ever again (short of something I never watched/read about and thus didn’t know was 3DCGI, upon learning of which, removal will follow immediately), what little I have (against my will) included in the past has been removed, and that’s the end of that. No exceptions will be made and no objections will be considered, nor am I interested in hearing about why this upsets or bothers anyone or how they’re totally going to go to [site x] instead as if that somehow “hurts” me – I genuinely don’t care, and such messages will be marked as spam and deleted on the spot. I am also not interested in debates over what counts as full-3DCGI or not. As the owner of the site who pays the hosting bills with no ads and does the work, I only care about one opinion – mine.

          I recognize that’s a really blunt reply, which isn’t meant to be aimed at you directly, but it’s only so that there’s absolutely zero ambiguity for anyone who isn’t clear about the intended scope of the site – because I’ve completely run out of tolerance and patience for this topic.

          • Anonymous says:

            You may want to consider adding an entry to the miscellaneous part of the FAQ, as I would guess more questions about “stuff missing” will come forward every time some 3DCGI thing is selling and that might help to negate some of them.

            • something says:

              I’d considered it, but people who only use the site infrequently enough not to know aren’t people who are going to read the FAQ, honestly. And I’d rather not even give the stuff the acknowledgment of a big formal post – which, again, most people would not read either, especially if it’s for something airing like 6 months from now.

          • Anonymous says:

            Are you going to delete comments discussing the sales figures of those shows too, as long as they’re not addressing you directly?

            • something says:

              Only if it gets excessive. Off-topic discussion is allowed to an extent, but should always be within reason. There are other sites where such things can be discussed anyway. This isn’t the only site on the internet and certainly not a relevant one.

    Don’t Ghibli movies sell more DVDs than BDs anyway?
    Interested in Expelled from Paradise’s sales next week, apparently it sold out on day 1.

    • something says:

      Ghibli does still sell more on DVD than BD, yes. It’s not as pronounced in the first week, but a huge percentage of the long tail goes to DVD rather than BD. Just look at how the Totoro DVD still ranks more often than the much more recent Totoro BD! Here’s the last three Ghibli movies with simultaneous BD/DVD release vs Kaguya-hime:

      Karigurashi no Arietty (June 2011)
      Wk1: 127,365 DVD vs 36,667 BD (22% BD)
      LTD: 273,097 DVD vs 57,301 BD (17% BD)

      DVDs increased 114% since wk1, while BDs increased 56%.

      Kokurikozaka Kara (June 2012)
      Wk1: 50,608 DVD vs 26,481 BD (34% BD)
      LTD: 97,233 BD vs 36,769 BD (27% BD)

      DVDs increased 92% since wk1, while BDs increased 50%.

      Kaze Tachinu (June 2014)
      Wk1: 63,111 DVD vs 46,335 BD (42% BD)
      LTD: 128,784 DVD vs 71,515 BD (35% BD)

      DVDs increased 104% since wk1, while BDs increased 54%.

      Kaguya-hime no Monogatari (December 2014)
      Wk1: 8,208 DVD vs 8,877 BD (52% BD)

      Kaguya-hime actually sold more on BD wk1 than DVD, ever so slightly. Perhaps because it seems to have less mainstream appeal, with a larger percentage of buyers being film fans who want the best quality? And as you can see from above there’s just an obvious trend in BD taking a larger chunk from film to film. This makes sense, because BD has increased in prevalence over those three and a haf years.

      But I would expect DVD will eventually overtake BD by a decent margin even here. If it follows the “DVDs double, BDs increase by half” pattern then we’d see something like 16K DVD vs 13k BDs. It’s possible it’ll be closer if this has a shorter tail than other Ghibli films, which looks likely given how drastically lower a starting point it’s got. An 8k DVD is not going to add 200-600 discs a week every week for ages like most Ghibli.

      By the way, my comment about Amazon was just that the BD at Amazon ranked roughly twice as well as the DVD, despite the actual sales being an even split. This indicates that people who buy Ghibli at Amazon aren’t representative of Ghibli buyers at large – they’re biased heavily towards the kind of person who prefers BDs more than the general population.

    Updated for the full list. Not much added.

  5. bunny1ov3r says:

    Not a lot of strong sellers this week (or is it just me?).

    Good to see Clannad still remain in the heart of us fans.

    • something says:

      Very few new releases this week, and the ones that were released weren’t big sellers, so it’s not just you. Next week will be even smaller. The end of the month will be huge though.

  6. Guest says:

    This is interesting, not much to do with the current season but I was browsing through japanese anime sales sites and you list Junjou Romantica 2 as 6,959 average while this: http://www24.atwiki.jp/anime-urisure/pages/504.html lists a 7002 average?

    • something says:

      Maybe just rounding or a transposed number or something? I’ve got the same number as the JP DVDBD Wiki, which is where I got anything pre-2009 from.

      • Ejc says:

        ○純情ロマンチカ2 【全6巻】

        06巻 *4,668 *6,494 09.06.26
        BOX *1,142 **,*** 12.02.24

        They got the average using 6861 for Vol.5 instead of 6600 which the DVDBD wiki used.

        • something says:

          Ah I usually include the noted additions, maybe they added this one in after I originally got the data (which was maybe a few years ago now). In any case I take the low end of the range, so that brings the average to exactly 7000.
