Spring update:

Winter update:
Deremas v1 sells 11807/1723 standalone + 24,341 G4U, total 37,871. Event ticket volume. Bwaaaaaaaaaaahuuuuuh? First Famitsu reported 8.6k and my heart totally sank because Famitsu and Media Create are not much different. But holy shit Famitsu is 1/3rd what Media Create announced. I don’t have the slightest clue what could make such a massive difference between the two. Like maybe Famitsu doesn’t cover Aniplex+ but there is NO WAY it accounts for so many sales.

Nonethless, Media Create has always been the source of record for game sales among the sales tracking community (and these sales frankly make far more sense given Animas split than G4U being half of standalone sales) so it’s what we officially used for Animas and will use here! Man, I feel like I’ve just been revived from the dead. Thank goodness. I almost don’t care how much the event ticket drop is, since this volume is going to blow past 40k.

Kurobas s3 v1 sells 6696/8991, total 15,687. Strong obviously, but not as high as I expected for a discount + event ticket volume. 29.9% underestimated on DVD, but only 0.4% on BD. It continues to have less storefront effect than your typical Animate title. Nonetheless, Kurobas’ thing has often been really big wk2s, so it could hit 20k already next week. But topping Kancolle to take 1st or 2nd (depending on Deremas) looks very unlikely now.

Jojo Egypt v1 sells 7330/1869, total 9,199. Wk2+ will tell the tale more clearly, but this is an event ticket volume so without 10k wk1 I’m not that confident anymore in a 10k series average. I thought it might do it with the first part of SC averaging 12.4k. Still, it should be fairly consistent so if v1 gets up around 12k, it could just slip in a 10k average.

Koufuku v1 sells 1475/296, total 1,771. I wish this had come out in any other week so I could just focus on Deremas and be happy, but man I’d sacrifice half Deremas’ sales just to see Koufuku average even 4k. And this is an event ticket volume too. Ughhhhhhh. Anime is terrible and I don’t know why I like it. ;_;

Shounen Hollywood s2 v1 sells 922/425, total 1,347, DVDs from extended.

Kancolle v2 sells 12438/2231, total 14,669. Down 26.6% on v1wk1, which is sizable but not nearly as bad as it looked from the dailies. When its pre-sale was below Deremas’ 2nd day that seemed damning, but Deremas ended up selling a lot more than expected and Kancolle’s sales came strong later in the week.

Aldnoah s2 v2 sells 4820/617, total 5,437.

Dog Days” v2 sells 3467/939, total 4,406. Even a 5k average might be a bit optimistic for this season.

Shinmai Maou v2 sells 3432/922, total 4,354.

Durarara s2 v3 sells 1990/1193, total 3,183. Yikes, percentage-wise a very big drop from v2’s 4.7k wk1. barely 3k wk1 for Durarara… the passage of time is cruel on some anime.

AnsaKyou v2 sells 902/1138, total 2,040.

Tokyo Ghoul s2 v2 sells 1122/640, total 1,762. Down 32.8% on v1wk1.

Yurikuma v2 sells 733 BDs, DVDs do not rank. Almost certain to get a sub-1k average now. I repeat, anime is terrible, let’s all find a new hobby.

Isuca v2 sells 620 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

World Break v2 sells 613 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Milky TD v2 sells 604 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Fafnir v2 sells 601 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Junketsu no Maria v2 sells 494 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Past seasons:
Bonjour: Koiaji Patisserie v1 sells 325, DVD-only release, from the extended rankings.

SAO II v7 sells 12640/2488, total 15,128.

Shirobako v5 sells 12538/486, total 13,024.
v4 adds 1008 BDs, total 13,987 in wk5 after a restock.

Mahouka v10 sells 7091/1929, total 9,020. Series average: 11,360 and maybe 11.5k in the end.

Kimiuso v3 sells 6379/1177, total 7,556. Not really seeing a 10k average in its future anymore but it’ll still do well.

G Reco v5 sells 6179/691, total 6,870.

Amaburi v5 sells 4364/440, total 4,804, DVDs from extended, but at a guess; it’s missing from Oricon’s extended rankings. It was #104 this week, between Grisaia (#97, 458) and Log Horizon (#107, 436) so I went with 440.

Crossange v5 sells 4103/400, total 4,530, DVDs from extended.

Nanatai v4 sells 1988/1891, total 3,879. Taking a bit of a tumble.

Grisaia v5 sells 2849/458, total 3,307.

Wixoss s2 v2 sells 2344/317, total 2,661, DVDs from extended.

Trinity Seven v5 sells 2026/533, total 2,559.

Girlfriend (kari) v4, final volume, sells 1582/478, total 2,514. Series average: 2,514, which is about where it’ll end, a few dozen more at most.

Madan no Ou v5 sells 1970/459, total 2,429.

Log Horizon s2 v4 sells 1720/436, total 2,156.

OreTwi v5 sells 1659/317, total 1,976, DVDs were missing from the extended rankings as well but Oricon says it’s #147 this week. Which is, uh, exactly what it says Wixoss s2 v2 was so I guess it’s the same number then.

Gugukoku v5 sells 1002/959, total 1,961.

Bahamut v3 sells 1,598, BD-only release.

Sorameso v4 sells 1,049, BD-only release.

Chaika s2 v5, final volume, sells 845 BDs, DVDs do not rank. Series average: 1,007. =(

Inou-battle v5 sells 807, BD-only release.

Daitoshokan v5 sells 739 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Yowapedal s2 v4 adds 607/598, total 7,838.

Yuyuyu v5 adds 566 BDs, total 7,449. If v6 can get a small boost from the second visual novel, this should hold onto a 9k average.

Psycho-Pass 2 v5, final volume, adds 507 BDs, total 5,353. Series average: 6,462.

OVAs, Movies, Boxsets etc:
Gundam Origin v1 sells 48031/12104, total 60,135. Not as overestimated as G Reco, but will probably end up quite a ways below Unicorn. Then again most anime ever made is a ways below Unicorn.

K Missing Kings sells 6903/2888 LEs, 403/341 REs, total 10,535.

Gintama BD Box v3 sells 6,092.

TeniPri OVA v4 sells 1404/2875, total 4,279.

Senran Kagura OVA sells 3,491, BD-only release. The game came out in March and had a code to purchase this, or something like that?

Working’!! BD Box sells 2,024. Definitely not going to get near s1’s 9.2k box. Of course s1 was DVD-only in singles so more people needed to upgrade.

Oregairu BD Box adds 473, total 6,795 in wk8.

    IIRC The first volume of Unicorn sold 56k in its first week and added more with subsequent releases within the 4 years it was being released regularly (every volume if Unicorn had better sales from the last and people would by the previous volume with it) you’re right in that it probably won’t reach Unicorn level sales with it only being 4 episodes but its great nonetheless and of course Bandai will be pushing it for as long as they’re (still) pushing Unicorn.

    • Anon says:

      UC v1 sold 85K in the first week. I don’t really think Origin will add 100K more but it’ll surely end up doubling these first week numbers.

      • something says:

        Yeah, this. I do not expect Origin to be anywhere near as back-loaded as Unicorn v1, though it’ll still get to… say 100k?

  2. Ejc says:

    I realised why sales are so much higher than expected for Deremas Vol.1. Turns out they bundled an event ticket (for SUMMER FESTIV@L 2015) on the standalone and an event ticket (for THE IDOLM@STER M@STERS OF IDOL WORLD!!2015 Day2:MAIN WORLD 765PRO +CINDERELLA GIRLS + MILLION LIVE!) on the G4U bundle. 2 separate event tickets, means double dipping for fans:

    Unless they do the same on all the volumes, I see a steep drop from Vol.2 onwards.

    • something says:

      Yeah I heard about the event ticket situation, but it was still more storefront heavy than I expected. I thought the long top 20 stint on Amazon would push the estimate high, or at least on par with reality. I guess it wasn’t top 10 during most of that time though and 11-20 don’t inflate estimates as much as top 10.

      It’ll definitely have a drop though, yes.

  3. G4U says:

    I’m pretty sure the overall split for CG is going to be roughly 50/50; I think G4U 1 will 15k week 1, tho.

  4. moodie says:

    waiting for the extended list to see how koufuku is doing 2k average would be fine with me

    • something says:

      I don’t even know if it’ll manage 2k average but… blah, that’s pretty much where my “success” standards have gone nowadays.

      I need Deremas to do really well because it is my one and only shot this year, so far as I can tell, of a show I care about selling 10k+.

      • Hahalollawl says:

        By shows you care about selling 10k+ this year do you mean shows that will complete the sale of all volumes this year and average 10k+? Or just any show airing this year? Because if you’re referring to any show airing this year and you already know what’s going to air for the next 2 seasons then please share your source =P Especially for Fall, there doesn’t seem to be a whole lot of information on what will air that far in the future…but if you have a source I’m interested =)

        • something says:

          We know a lot of Summer series already: https://www.livechart.me/summer-2015/tv
          As for Fall, probably about a third are announced: https://www.livechart.me/fall-2015/tv

          There aren’t any sequels to shows I like in the pipeline that could sell 10k as far as I know, so it would have to be a brand new series. The last brand new series I liked that hit 10k was Gochiusa (which just barely made it) back in Spring 2014. Before that… Free! s1 in Summer 2013 I guess.

          New 10k series I care about have been pretty few and far between.

          • Hahalollawl says:

            Ah, so you’re anticipating no new shows that you like huh. Fall seems pretty unclear though.

            Oh and my own subjective “success” standard I think I’ll use something like maybe 3.5k, at which point I think there’s a good chance a show at least didn’t lose a significant amount of money, and may have made some profit. Sort of an augmented manabi line. I noticed UFO Princess Valkyrie supposedly has an average of exactly 3.5k. Don’t really know much about that show, but perhaps this 3.5k line can be referred to as the UFO line lol. Or the valkyrie line.

            Of course context is important, so FSN selling 3.5k isn’t the same as a new original series selling 3.5k. But just as a sort of general guideline I think it could work. Seems about as good as any other. Is the UFO line arbitrary and subjective? Perhaps, so what? lol =P

            • something says:

              Noooo, no more lines!

              Really tho, 3.5k avg discs in and of itself doesn’t pay for much. Certainly doesn’t come close to covering the costs of producing an anime. So it’s all about other revenue streams and disc sales aren’t a good predictor of those, so the underlying meaning of a 3.5k average is, well… not meaningful at all by itself.

              • Hahalollawl says:

                How dare you! Are you criticizing my arbitrary exercise in line drawing! lol.

                I was actually thinking of using 4k for the line, not that that’s necessarily better haha. There don’t appear to be any series that averaged exactly 4k discs though…Maybe the Crescent Love line.

                Actually though, did you see the interview with Yoshiyuki Tomino?


                I could be wrong, but the way I interpreted that was disc sales are still the key indicator of success. Specifically the part about “the people who sell a million copies are the winners and there’s no future for anyone beneath that. That means if something doesn’t sell, you can’t brag about it”. So in case you were questioning the importance of disc sales (which is somewhat ironic lol) then perhaps this can serve to emphasize that they are still VERY important.

                Anyways, typically you would expect the anime to be licensed for streaming and sales in other countries, sell CDs, and possibly source material, so between those and disc sales, I would think most anime that average above the Crescent Love line tend to do pretty well for their production committee =D

                • something says:

                  “Tend to”, “usually”, “most”, “probably” are all fine and necessary caveats but most of the time people ignore them! Once there’s a “line”, caution goes out the window. That’s why I always try to make people feel less certain about their conclusions, myself included, not more certain. When there is no easy or clear answer, we should embrace that.

                  Regarding Tomino’s comment, I think you’re interpreting it a bit narrowly. He was obviously speaking off the cuff (hence hyperbole like “a million”) and in fairly vague terms. Clearly discs matter – especially for the video publisher/distributor on the committee. And I wouldn’t spend so much of my free time maintaining this site as I do if I thought they weren’t important! But they don’t matter enough to be used as the sole or even primary indicator of a show’s success. Even when they’re the “most important” single factor, that doesn’t mean it’s always more important than all the other factors combined.

                  • Hahalollawl says:

                    Well, maybe people should read more carefully then! But yeah, probably shouldn’t draw too many conclusions. At the same time though, why can’t they (the committees) just be more transparent about stuff…

                    Maybe it is more important than all the other factors combined for some shows, and maybe it isn’t for all we know. BUT I’m inclined to believe that if a show sells a particularly significant amount of discs then it does become the dominant factor because they’re almost certainly receiving a significant amount of revenue from the disks. Anyways, supposedly Cross Ange sold enough for a sequel, so…6750 the new Cross line for original anime sequels? =D


  5. something says:

    Edit: So the below numbers are Famitsu at the moment, not Media Create, but I doubt it’ll make a huge difference.


    Wow, G4U sales are bad.

    8,639 for v1wk1. With an event ticket. I thought I was being conservative guessing it would be 1/2 of sales rather than 2/3rds like Animas but this is yet more evidence that there is no such thing as too much pessimism when it comes to anime sales.

    This is a >20k v1, sure (22,169) but after those standalone sales I hoped it would do much better. And considering the ticket drop will probably be harsh, we could be looking at a very steep from from the original Idolmaster. Idolmaster also had an extremely front-loaded film so I expect Deremas to be pretty front-loaded too.

    So either G4U needs to step it up (except there’s only reason to believe it’ll go down) or we’re going to see, what, 40% plunge from Animas? Best hope is that there was basically no event ticket effect for G4U and later volumes will sell similarly. But hope is a liiiiiie.

    • iku says:

      Heavy franchise fatigue, like with most sequels that are 2-3 years later, or an effect of people not caring as much about the CGs?

      • something says:

        Deremas the game is massively popular with millions of players and the CDs crush most of what was ever released for original Idolmaster.

        The production values of the anime are a clear step down from Animas but then most anime ever made are a step down from Animas and Deremas still had some very nice highlights. And production quality has barely any connection to sales at all (else Euphonium would be selling 100k).

        So I dunno. My only guess is that Imas’ core fanbase was on consoles, so the (console) G4U packs did much much better than they have any chance of doing with the mobage Deremas fanbase. Pure speculation though.

    • something says:

      Added a note that 8,639 is Famitsu’s number actually, not Media Create. I don’t think it’ll change very much but I’ll update later when Media Create is out. I didn’t realize the GAF thread posted Famitsu as well and skipped right past the header.

      • something says:


        Famitsu’s sales were waaaaaaaaaaaaay off, Media Create is reporting 24,341 for G4U! Famitsu reported a third of that. Media create is the official source we always use for game releases when it comes to anime tie-ins, so that’s the number we’re going with!

        That means 37,871!

        It’ll drop like a rock after the event ticket but dropping from what will be >40k is better than dropping from 22k!

        For fuck’s sake finally something good happens for once.

          What the shit

          Guess that renders my earlier comment just now completely moot, huh?
          So how does this compare against the first iM@S series now? I tried calculating it myself from the 2011 volume numbers but the release pattern was too confusing.

          • something says:

            This is already 3k better than the lifetime sales of the best-selling Animas volume. It’s not a fair comparison because Animas had no event ticket, and v2 G4U was heavily understocked, and v1 G4U didn’t count due to being bundled with the full PS2 game. But this is definitely going to end way above any of the Animas volumes.

            G4U vs Standalone percentage-wise, it’s spot on. About 2/3rds of sales are G4U, which is just how Animas ended up, which is why these sales make a whole lot more sense than the original Famitsu report. (Famitsu and Media Create had nowhere near this gap for Animas G4U.)

            • iku says:

              Thanks. Just one last question so I won’t need to ask again next time: what type of sales does the “(game)” entry mean on the 2011 volume list?

              • something says:

                For v1 it’s the full PS3 Idolmaster 2 game release (which included G4U but is of course not counted in the anime’s average) and for v2+ it’s the G4U packs.

                (standalone) is the normal DVD/BD releases, and then I combine them in the third entry for the total sales.

                Average is calculated as average(standalone v1-9) + average(G4U v2-9).

                • iku says:

                  Ah, got it, went braindead and didn’t realize the third “bundle” number was just adding the first two (except in the v1 case, where as you said it was impossible to separate regular game sales from the G4U bundles).

                  Sure do wonder what an Idolmaster game on the PS2 would have been like, though.

                  • something says:

                    Oh it was PS3 not PS2, right. I bought a PS3 for it, but couldn’t remember if it was a PS2 game I was playing backwards compatible or a native PS3 game. I suppose in 2011 it would have to be PS3!

                • iku says:

                  And then you were editing your reply while I was writing that one so it looks redundant now… I’m just gonna go sit over the corner so the comment wall doesn’t expand further.

      Those Koufuku sales.

      I hate anime.

    • Ejc says:

      You missed one DVD, since the lowest on the DVDAnime30 wasn’t past rank 100 on the overall DVDs.

      97 – **,458 **,458 *1 グリザイアの果実 第5巻

      Brutal threshold though (but doesn’t really matter much for anime anymore)… although there are still some concert BDs/DVDs that unfortunately doesn’t fall into the animation BD/DVD extended lists.

      • something says:

        That’s so bizarre, I know for a fact I saw that on Tuesday morning (it’s so unusual for it to go beyond 30, so it stuck out) but I must not have copied it to my sheet that converts the Oricon rankings into a table for the post. Thanks for pointing that out.

  7. something says:

    Updated for the full list. Will do the extended rankings tomorrow.

  8. Anon says:

    Hmmm, first time Shirobako v1 doesn’t rank?

    • something says:

      In the Top 100, yes. It’ll probably be back next week (since it’s a super dead week) and make the extended rankings for some time after that.

  9. anonymous says:

    For the winter update for Ansatsu Kyoushitsu, don’t you mean Volume 2 instead of volume 1?

  10. something says:

    Checked the extended rankings for this week. About 90 DVDs and 120 BDs were new or added a week of ranking.

    I’ve started including v1s/movies/boxes that were already mentioned in the post above with extended ranking edits (like Koufuku’s DVD sales) here so you don’t need to find them in the post. I’m not going to re-list every updated v2+ though, since as I mention above there were like 200 changed this week alone.

    There is zero need to mourn over the sales of a show which deliberately tries hard to limit its audience.

    This sounds like:
    ‘Hey, you otaku who don’t treat yuri seriously, or you who doesn’t spend more than 6 hours trying to interpret the show, scram!’
    Months later:
    ‘To hell with the sub-1k sales…’

    • something says:

      This is a very silly comment.

      • w7n says:

        I bet you have the perception that I haven’t dug into it much, but the fact is I am one who has actually spent a lot of time trying to look for the meanings of the symbols there.
        Still, this experience came out as almost as frustrating as entertaining for me, probably more frustrating than entertaining.
        For me, this show has high inspiration value but much lower entertainment value.

        • something says:

          The problem I see with Yurikuma wasn’t all the abstract symbolism – you can enjoy the show without writing a thesis on that or spending hours trying to interpret an episode. It was the relative lack of development for the cast and it being tough to feel like we really knew any of the characters other than the supremely wonderful Lulu. This didn’t sink the show for me (I still enjoyed it and imported it), but I’d say that’s what hurt the show’s marketability more than anything else.

          My issue with your comment was more the implication that it featuring a lesbian relationship was tantamount to “telling otaku to scram”. It’s really unfortunate if that’s how it’s viewed.

          • w7n says:

            Indeed, lack of development for the characters is another real problem here. I’ve covered this in my review.

        • w7n says:

          By inserting the first 3 episodes(in a 12-ep show) of all those repeating stuff, I’m not sure if this can actually garner attention of potential Ikuhara fans.

          The case around me:
          When the show was airing, a certain club was all like ‘AotS, 10/10’ and all those hype, to the extent of building an atmosphere ‘not completing it is sin’.
          So I watched it. Frankly, it’s a show of good quality in its meaning. But it’s not only flawed in several aspects, but also frustrating even for anime viewers who take anime seriously.
          First of all, all those symbols look as if not grasping a single one would immediately bring you to a loss in the next episode, but eventually it turns out that just grasping most of the key symbols is fine.
          Second, again, it’s about the first 3 episodes. If you really want this show to sell well, make this first 3 episodes look more promising instead of mindscrewing! All I do get is the homophobe stuff, and frankly, the show doesn’t actually deliver something significant in the first 3 episodes.

          • something says:

            Ikuhara does have very… zealous… fans. I guess I can see how that would put someone off. It held my pre-airing hype for the show pretty low, though that’s also largely because I didn’t end up liking Penguindrum all that much so I kept expectations in check for this.

            And yeah, the first few episodes did the show no favors. I was intrigued, I didn’t think they were bad, but didn’t start caring about the characters until later in ep 3 and more in eps 4-5. It’s like it was tailor made to not sell discs.

            But I’m still sad about it selling this poorly. Partly because it’s just yet another setback for yuri, but also because I think it just ended up being a really solid show with a great ending, and if more people stuck around past eps 1-2, I think a lot of them would have liked it.

            But oh well, too late for all that.

            • w7n says:

              If you like it, you’re a zealous fan. If you don’t like it, you treat it as bullcrap. Is this in any ways a good trend?
              If Ikuhara is to popularise his opinions, he should try to garner more potential Ikuhara fans (among people who treat anime seriously), but it appears as if he doesn’t even give a damn.

              • something says:

                Not sure if I was misinterpreted but I certainly didn’t say that everyone who liked Yurikuma was a zealous Ikuhara fan. I don’t really care one way or the other about Ikuhara but I liked it. And some people who like Ikuhara a lot didn’t like it.

                Really, Yurikuma should have been two cour – more time to let the ideas sink in, more time to develop the characters. Would have required a significant change to the structure of the story, though.

                At this point I just want to read the manga because Morishima Akiko is ♥
