Charlotte v1 adds 260 BDs, total 9,310.

TLR Darkness s2 v1 adds 215 BDs, total 6,626.

Spring update:
Fate UBW s2 sells 32,806, as a one-shot BD box. 37% underestimated.

Utapri s3 v4 sells 12826/6828, total 19,654. In all likelihood, this will drop to about a 36k average, and UBW will end up a bit higher as the best-selling Spring show.

Kekkaisen v4 adds 225 BDs, total 14,418.

Gintama v3 adds 300/310, total 6,243.

Danmachi v4 adds 288 BDs, total 4,851.

Sailor Moon Crystal v12 sells 285 DVDs, total 2,480 with last month’s BDs.
v13, final volume, sells 1,959 BDs, DVDs next month. Series average: 2,995.

Deremas v5 adds 372 BDs, total 23,527.

Kurobas s3 v6 adds 200/253, total 12,046. BDs from extended.

Jojo s3 v6, final volume, adds 599/140, total 9,321. Series average: 9,877. All up to the long tail to maybe take this over 10k.

OVAs, Movies, Boxsets etc:
Kyoukai no Kanata Movie 2, Mirai-hen sells 5165/1450, total 6,606. Was also sold at theaters, those sales are unreported. Not great but the series only averaged 4,505 to begin with I guess.

Tamayura Movie 2, Hibiki sells 2962/436, total 3,398. These sales are depressing, but I guess it’s a better wk1 than the first movie… for what that’s worth. The Amazon bias is also crazy, this was overestimated 76/152%. I really hope this is a satisfying passion project for the staff because I cannot fathom these films being very profitable.

HanaIro BD Box re-release sells 993. Total 3,635 with the first box.

Devilman BD Box sells 467.

  1. primadog says:

    Wow, those KnK numbers are worse than even the Tamako and Chuuni recap movies. We can only hope theatre sales made up the bulk of the sales.

  2. Name2 says:

    I see you missed it last week too but Wakakozake is Summer 2015 late night anime, i see you didn’t bold it nor comment about it at all.

    • something says:

      Ah I meant to look into that one to see if it was late night, since it is I’ll add it.

      • Jim says:

        It’s a pretty nice little series too, and even better if you’re a foodie. I think all of us older working stiffs can relate to a main character who just wants a nice meal and a drink at the end of her shift.

  3. NukaCola says:

    Didnt expect FSN would outdo UtaPri weeping.

    Is that good or bad for World Trigger [though its manga rose to 300K average over the past year from ~125K]

    • Hahalollawl says:

      Really? I was surprised by how much UtaPri has sold. I thought FSN would be the highest selling show of that season (though it still might be). Although I didn’t know UtaPri was double event ticketed, so that might explain it.

      • NukaCola says:

        I would think UtaPri fans would want the discs because of the music some volumes come with our just seeing our fav boys perform the songs (have you not seen utapri fans shrines?). Though I also expected a lot sinc eit seems each season sales more than the previous

        • Hahalollawl says:

          I guess I wouldn’t know since I don’t may much attention to Utapri. But again, I didn’t know it had multiple event tickets and without the event tickets I’m not sure it would’ve sold as much.

          • hpulley says:

            Few of the shows on the list are just anime. You can’t just pull out event tickets. Most have games as well. Game volumes, game bonus codes, tickets, bonus novels and manga, song/OST/drama/radio CDs… It’s about the multimedia projects these days. Anime on a disc in a box doesn’t sell very well these days and probably for good reason; if that’s all you want then you can just download it. The extras are what make it attractive to buy, other than people who are there just to support the work and may not even open the packaging.

            UtaPri: double ticket. Symphogear GX: double ticket. Idolmaster: games, CDs and live events. LoveLive: games, CDs, movie and live events. Fate: OST, drama CD, alternate anime ending, additional unaired episodes used to be a big draw but nowadays you can just download them anyway so they aren’t as attractive, probably the same for the CDs. Anything you can easily reproduce is less valuable.

            Many LN/manga adaptations bomb in anime sales but grow their book sales so that’s fine. It just depends what the production committee sets out to do, the reason why they bothered to make an anime in the first place. The disc sales may not even matter to them, just some icing on the cake.

            The anime sales are really secondary, tertiary or even lower down today on the income sources. If it sells, great! But if not, there are many other perhaps more important avenues to make the money for the multimedia projects.

            • Hahalollawl says:

              That’s fair, but my point wasn’t to demean the sales of Utapri (as in saying it only sold because of an event ticket), but rather to note that I (ignorantly not knowing it had two event tickets) expected it to sell less than Fate. So I guess I’m trying to rationalize my own misguided expectation…though to be fair, these things can be hard to predict in general. I still think it’s pretty impressive that Utapri’s number has potentially grown over the course of 3 seasons across 5 years. Typically it seems like interest tends to fade over time.

              In general maybe the anime sales are secondary sources of income, but it seems like that would vary depending on the show. For example, isn’t it safe to say that anime sales are more important for an original like Charlotte than an adaptation?

              • hpulley says:

                Not having original material sales bumps to hope for and rely on, original anime may rely more on anime sales to recoup the costs but Charlotte has several CDs which have all sold very well, a lot of other merchandise and I wouldn’t be surprised to see a game come out; everything has one or two these days. It is riskier for sure as unpopular original anime likely won’t sell a lot of other merchandise, it is sort of all or nothing for the most part. Charlotte looks like it will make out fine but other original anime projects do not do as well.

                Symphogear GX is another one which defies the usual conventions, looking like it will do better in season 3 than in season 2 which did better than season 1. Also original anime, also makes a lot of money on CDs, concerts and merchandise. Surprised it doesn’t have a game yet with Bushiroad on the production committee for GX.

                Successful examples of original anime for sure.

                • Hahalollawl says:

                  Yeah, I was especially glad to see that Lia OP did well, such a great song. Did the EDs do well too? I realize it may have nothing to do with them, but it seems like P.A. Works shows always or almost always have great music. Maybe it’s just coincidence, but it seems that way. NagiAsu had those yanaginagi songs, Glasslip had Choucho, etc.

                  And of course, Shirobako did very well for an original anime.

                  • hpulley says:

                    Yes, Charlotte sold both singles and albums for How Low Hello and Zhiend. The single for How Low Hello contained the ED and sold 15K or so thus far, her album sold over 10K first week. Zhiend’s siingle was also 15K or so, album should do similarly well. Not quite Angel Beats but good CD sales.

    • something says:

      As a long-running morning show I’m guessing discs aren’t super important for World Trigger, so I guess it’s okay?

  4. DarklordVor says:

    Anybody knows if it’s not listed here, does it means that the BD/DVD doesn’t sell well?

    Because Gakkou Gurashi is not listed this week, and I’m new to these BD lists. Thanks!

    • something says:

      Gakkou Gurashi came out two weeks ago. Most series, unless they’re major hits, only make the preliminary rankings once or twice. They may rank a few times beyond that in the full lists or extended rankings (out later in the week).

      Gakkou Gurashi did okay-ish for v1, selling 3,474. It’ll probably average around 2.5k, which isn’t good but isn’t disastrous either, considering how much the manga sales increased.

  5. Fabio says:

    “2015/10/14 Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou v5” … is it correct? The correct isn’t v2?

  6. AnimePhoenix says:

    Not much for me this week, other than praying that Starmyu doesn’t flop on its face. I need more male idol anime.

    UtaPriS3 still doing well and Kurobasu is back to normal.

  7. something says:

    Full list posted. Will do the extended rankings later.

  8. something says:

    • Hahalollawl says:

      Hmmm, didn’t know that UBW sold 39k+, I thought it was 35kish. Maybe it doesn’t make much of a difference at that point, but still, it is significantly more than I thought.

      Who do you think buys re-release boxes generally? People who didn’t buy the volumes, or people who did and want everything of that franchise for their collection? Both or neither? There’s nothing extra special in that Geass re-release right?

      • something says:

        I can’t imagine the majority of BD box purchases are double-dips. It has to be new buyers who either found the show later, or couldn’t afford/prioritize it at the time. If a series was DVD only and gets a re-release on BD then double-dipping for better quality will be a thing, but by and large, people ain’t rebuying series.

        (I say this having preordered both the Yuyushiki and Mouretsu Pirates boxes despite owning them already, Yuyushiki twice. But I know that’s not *normal* at all.)

  9. I halp says:

    SoreSeiyuu v1 adds 269 BDs, total 2,650

    Not bad since the production cost must have been minimal.

    Did not know that Symphogear was such a big hit. I wondered why they were making sequels.

    • something says:

      Production costs don’t vary that wildly for most anime, so it’s generally not a huge factor in whether a series is successful.

      As for Symphogear, it’s grown more popular every season. From 5k to 8k to this one which will easily be over 10k. The music also makes tons of money (one of the most successful series ever for charasong CD sales), which is good for King Records because they handle both the video disc *and* music distribution for the show. It’s always a risk to invest to that degree in a show, but when it’s a hit, you stand to gain a *lot*. King Records in particular likes to do both video and music for their properties.

      Speaking of other King Records properties that increased in popularity from season to season, they also handled Nanoha, which is the only other series to see this kind of season on season increase over three seasons.

      • I halp says:

        I am unwilling to believe that Fate UBW has a budget anywhere near as SoreSeiyu. They are entirely different beasts.

        And as always I will never understand Japanese people and their attraction to weird as fuck shows. Thanks for the info. ^^

        • Hahalollawl says:

          Right, which is why the words “most” and “generally” are worth noting. Fate UBW is probably one of the shows that does not fall under that. But there are probably quite a few shows that do have similar costs, and since we probably don’t actually know how much exactly a show costs, it might not be a factor that should be weighed heavily in determining success or failure.

          And liking shows that people in other countries might consider “weird as fuck” is probably not exclusive to Japan. I suspect that there are a lot of things westerners do/like that Japanese people think is weird as fuck.

        • something says:

          My point isn’t that budget doesn’t vary at all, but rather that SoreSeiyuu’s budget is unlikely to be much less than an “average” show (i.e. not a big flagship title with a ton of marketing and a big multi-media push behind it). Thus it selling 2.6k means pretty much the same thing as it means for most other shows selling 2.6k.

          • I halp says:

            Ah I see my bad. Reading comprehension fail.

            That being the case Kuusen Madoushi Kouhosei no Kyoukan is an anime that clearly has low budget. The animations were done terribly the CGI is also terrible. I can see that show being on the same level as Sore ga Seiyu! but how do you think it would compare to Gakusen Toshi Asterisk (I have no idea if this show would fall under flagship category because to me it seems relatively averageish) which clearly has way better production values.

            And if their budget is difference isnt that much would do they make such wide differences in funding. Part of the reason I did not give Kuusen Madoushi Kouhosei no Kyoukan a second look is because how crappy it looked. Its a bad show but I imagine that if it would as nearly as good as Asterisk its sales would probably double (it had very poor sales iirc)

            Another example would be Absolute Duo. It clearly had higher but similar production values as Kuusen Madoushi Kouhosei no Kyoukan but it wasnt crappy quality and it sold in more units. If both of these shows looked anywhere near as good as Asterisk or Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry I am pretty convinced it would have dozens of percentage points higher sales.

            My question being if the differences in production costs are not so varied why do not all anime look as good or approach the looks of Asterisk or Rakudai?

            • something says:

              For the most part, the visual quality of a show isn’t, or at least isn’t primarily, a matter of its budget. See here for a reply on this a little ways back.

              In short, time, talent, and money are all at play, all must be present to some extent. But time and talent will produce better work more often than any other combination. If you have a lot of all three, then great! That’s always the best case. But most productions don’t have that. And in that case, it’s talented animators being given adequate time to practice their craft that’s going to give you the best results.
