    World Trigger will have 16 volumes dude. Its 48 episodes long. And there will be filler arc this October.

  2. John says:

    Small update:

    Based on the latest daily chart (9/15/2015) from Oricon, looks like “Himouto! Umaru-chan” is outselling “Monster Musume” sightly.

    On the all-genre Blu-ray chart, “Himouto! Umaru-chan” is No.10, and “Monster Musume” is No.11.

    On the Anime DVD chart, “Monster Musume” is No.8, and “Himouto! Umaru-chan” is No.11.

      And it’s flipped on BD the next day. Always have to be careful with daily rankings, it’s never clear what they mean until the week is over.

    Sounds weird to say for a show that’s only just cracking 1k, but Okusama has some legs on it. it started at less than half of its current sales.

    • Hahalollawl says:

      Is Shirobako one of the most consistent high sales shows volume to volume that you’ve seen? Seems like it is to me…wow over 15k average. Good for P.A. Works at least for their their reputation in the industry I guess, and maybe they even made some money. I really like the way they seem to have a tendency to take on risky (many original) stuff while having great quality in many of their projects. Not sure what they’re going to do with Haruchika but from what I’ve seen that seems to be another risky project.

      • something says:

        Volume to volume it’s one of the most consistent shows, yes.

      • P.A. Works’s president, Horikawa, is good friends with a former Bandai Visual producer, Nagatani. This allows Horikawa to come up with ideas and Nagatani will shop them to other producers in Tokyo for someone to bite on for funding. With Shirobako, Warner’s Kawase felt it was worth giving a try to fund and helped form the committee.

        P.A.’s “quality” mostly lies in their art directors and hiring good studios like Studio Easter and more recently Green to draw the backgrounds for the works. Sadly, because they outsource a fair amount of episodes (and nearly all painting/photography to various painting studios and to the T2 photography studio), this leads most episodes to have issues matching the colors between character art and background art. That’s why I can’t watch any of their productions anymore.

        Haruchika could be something from a Kadokawa producer to promote, so I wouldn’t necessarily say it’s up to them; they’re not footing the bill of production if things fail. Generally P.A. tends to be at the end of committees, so they’re not really taking on a lot of risks unlike Bandai (Uchoten), Pony (Iroha, Tari Tari, Glasslip), Warner (Shirobako), Geneon (NagiAsu), or even Kadokawa (Another, Haruchika). If something doesn’t perform well, P.A. aren’t the company who has to recoup most of those expenses.

        • Hahalollawl says:

          Honestly, P.A. Works charadesigns haven’t always been my favorite (though the animation is good IIRC) but the backgrounds…goodness gracious they have done some GORGEOUS looking backgrounds. They are works of art on their own! And for whatever reason it seems like (in my opinion) their shows have consistently had great music to go with them. Whether it’s yanaginagi, Lia, Choucho, so much great music.

          • P.A.’s animation generally tends to be average to below average barring special cuts. As mentioned, “their” BG work tends to be from other studios, so I have difficulties giving them credit for it.

            Music is in the hands of the music producers (Lantis, Warner, Geneon, etc). It’s up to that producer to decide what songs to put in, so assigning credit to PA is pointless.

            I’m not trying to be a downer; this is seriously how the industry works. It’s hard to point to a studio and assign credit to them for things when there’s so many pieces elsewhere that deserve the credit instead. Outside of the former Ghibli and KyoAni (and even then music/editing/dubbing is done elsewhere), all productions require assistance from someone else in some form. Saying “all (blank) shows have (attribute)” tends to be inaccurate in most forms. It’s a sad ignorance of the industry that’s present both internationally and domestically.

            • Hahalollawl says:

              Hmmm, well, I guess I thought even though a lot of parts come from a number of parties, everything was approved/put together at the main studio so maybe they should get the credit for having a high standard? I guess the director would get credit for that, but it seems like when I’ve seen news articles (though I could be wrong) about a show (specifically on ANN lol), it says something like so and so is directing it at studio X. So for me, I guess there was an inclination to attribute a lot of credit for things like background art to that studio.

              I think it also has to do with how complex and quite frankly opaque the process seems to people on the outside. Like you mentioned, it’s hard to assign credit to anyone for anything. Anyways, personally I usually try to stay out of favoring studios too much or attributing a whole lot to an individual studio, but I admit I’ve looked on P.A. Works fondly, perhaps for things they may not have full control over (like background art or what shows they choose to animate). Still, even if they’re not Kyoani, I feel like they deserve some credit for the project choices they make, because just like how ufotable could have chosen not to animate God Eater so soon after UBW (leading to this…situation), I feel like a studio like P.A. Works can still decide not to work on something.

              • Typically, it’s the director’s job to check over everything (and the episode director to check before that (and the in-between checker to check those and so forth)). One of the issues in English fandom for a while has been to attribute things to the animation producer (except in instances like Eva where Gainax gets the credit, but Tatsunoko and IG worked on it too). That led to studios being the “name” except in certain circumstances like Miyazaki and Watanabe so it continues to get parroted because those are the names people recognize and have branded. It’s not technically wrong, but it’s not usually correct. It’s always up to the main staff to have high standards.

                I give P.A.’s president a lot of credit. He’s been able to work the industry (and fandom) incredibly well to produce a ton of original content through multiple directors/writers and boost his studio’s name without having to invest in a ton of resources in their location. His ideas have typically done well with the staff behind them (for example, Iroha was meant to be another sci-fi action show before they changed it while working on Angel Beats. They kept that concept in mind, even when keeping the original director for the action show). The other fun thing is that P.A. continues to work as an in-between studio to draw a lot of in-between artwork for other productions, so they’re constantly working on shows. Generally, only the BG work that they contract out tends to be of any higher quality than average. Story-wise, that’s a different bag as it’s up to the director/writer to come up with it and be able to tell a good story. The studio has little to do with it outside the original idea from Horikawa (if he has one). Otherwise, it’s just being contracted to do something (true tears, Cannan, Another, Haruchika) from someone else.

                Generally, there shouldn’t be any issues doing shows back-to-back. ufotable knew that Bandai Namco was counting on them to animate God Eater in a specific season so they could release the first volume with the re-make of the game and later volumes with other game content. It was up to them to complete their other work on-time to allow enough production time on God Eater to finish. It’s not Bandai Namco’s fault that ufotable couldn’t do what other studios have done. They chose to be part of the committee and they were not able to finish their obligations. ufotable’s production managers could have subcontracted the work elsewhere sooner, but they chose not to.

                The actual animation process is detailed and takes more education to learn about than most people are willing to go through. Thus writers take shortcuts (such as referring to studio instead of staff members). Over time, these add up and we reach the current state of the fandom. I wouldn’t say the animation process is opaque so much as previous members felt the education process wasn’t worth their time explaining in favor of trying to get readership through easier methods of articles such as controversial reviews and such. More is known now that we have multiple sources of information instead of periodicals at best, so things are getting better slowly.

    What the fuck is deremas?

    • something says:

      You can simply ctrl+f the number added this week and see where it shows up in the chart and get your answer. It’s The Idolmaster Cinderella Girls, colloquially known both in Japan and elsewhere as Deremas (like Idolmaster Million Live is Milimas and the original Idolmaster is just Imas or in anime form Animas).

    • Ejc says:

      アイドルマスター シンデレラガールズ = Idolmaster Cinderella Girls
      デレマス = Deremas → (Cinderella Master)

      Just a short form of Idolmaster CG. It’s a really common practice to abbreviate names in Japan. Other example is:

      ラブライブ!スクールアイドルフェスティバル = Love Live! School Idol Festival [this is the name of the popular mobile game]
      スクフェス = Sukufesu/Sukufes → (School Festival)
