    Genuinely excited to see Love Live’s movie numbers next week.

    • Kalanoch says:

      Speaking of that, is there anywhere on this site where movie disc sales are tracked/consolidated? If there is, I couldn’t find it, and it looks like the only way to get numbers for comparison is to dig into the weekly posts :/

  2. Mari says:

    On another note, RWBY Vol. 1 did about 5K which definitely shows the fanbase presence.

  3. Anonymous says:

    Will these sales of to love ru be enough for its next season???

    • therealtalk says:

      I’m replying to just highlight that financial success for an anime is not just home video sales but also manga volume gains (which often skyrocket after a good anime), ratings and other lesser factors like critic reviews and more importantly, media response.

  4. Anonymous says:

    Are the sales of to love ru good enough despite the fact that only few other dvd/bds were released??What about dxd born ova??

    • something says:

      TLR Darkness dropped a fair bit from its previous seasons but it should still average 5k or so, which isn’t bad. The number of other releases released this week isn’t relevant for evaluating how it sold tho.

      Is there actually a lot more content for Darkness that isn’t animated? If not, there might not be a reason to animate more. If there is a lot more then a third season isn’t impossible, but by no means guaranteed.

      I don’t know anything about the DxD BorN OVA tho.

      • Progeusz says:

        I didn’t watch the anime so I don’t know if it included more chapters in the middle of the cour but I skimmed through ep12 just now and it covers chapter 17.
        Currently there are 62 chapters out, which should be enough material for at least two more seasons and accounting for how long it takes to make anime, Japan could pump out four more seasons at reasonable pace before finally catching up with manga. I’m afraid the sales dwindled too much for that to happen though, I’m not sure if we’ll even get one more season. It should still be profitable but sponsors might be willing to invest in something new instead.

        • Progeusz says:

          Scratch that, I googled first season, not the second one. Shows how closely I follow the adaptation lol. They picked up the pace with second season and the specials ended with chapter 46. That means there is enough material for just one more season.

  5. AholePony says:

    Is it me or are there a lot of BD boxes being released recently? Maybe trying to have them in stores for the people with New Years money to spend?

  6. 37 says:

    I hope Noragami does at least decent.

    • AnimePhoenix says:

      Volume 1 should do OK since it has an event ticket. Volume 2+ is another story. But really, I’m super grateful that a second season was even made in the first place so I’m not going to complain that much. Season 1 didn’t do spectacularly either.

      • 37 says:

        Yeah, I think it’s average was like 4k or something like that. I’m happy it got a S2 as well, it’s better than what most series get.

  7. Anonymous says:

    What is the meaning of average sale of a series?for example TLRD s2 has 6626 vol1, 5210 vol2 4547 vol 3 and 3690 vol4(1st week)(excluding dvds).Then what is avg sale and how it is calculated??

    • something says:

      Average sales of each ranked BD volume
      Average sales of each ranked DVD volume
      Average sales

      It can get a little more complicated when there’s more than two ranked editions and series mix singles and boxsets and all that, but that’s the general idea.

      To take To Love-Ru Darkness 2nd as an example:
      Vol 1 BD = 5,633
      Vol 2 BD = 5,447
      Vol 3 BD = 4,547
      Vol 4 BD = 3,690

      = 19,317 / 4 = 4,829 BD average

      Vol 1 DVD = 1,251
      Vol 2 DVD = 1,220
      Vol 3 DVD = 1,094
      Vol 4 DVD = 869

      = 4,434 / 4 = 1,109 DVD average

      4829 + 1109 = 5,938 overall average (as of right now; there are three volumes not yet released)

  8. Anonymous says:

    so the gross till now for to love ru darkness 2nd which is about 148 million yen is good in japan??Because i am not aware of japan’s living standard.

    • something says:

      Pre-tax MSRP revenue for TLR Darkness s2 is currently ¥157m.

      The production committee gets maybe 55% fo that (very loose ballpark but it’s the best we have), which is ¥86m. Keep in mind it has 3 volumes left and v4 has only had one week of ranking so far.

      But here’s where it gets tricky. First, Oricon reports are not complete. The actual amount shipped to retailers (which is what the publisher gets paid for) is going to be higher than the Oricon sales report. Sometimes a lot higher.

      Second, it’s not a single company behind the show, it’s a whole committee of different companies investing various amounts of money into the series. Now generally speaking the video publisher (NBC Universal in this case) will get most of the video disc revenue, but different committees may split the revenue up in different ways. It’s impossible to say who gets how much.

      And there will probably be members of the committee for whom video disc sales don’t matter at all. Maybe the music publisher is only making money off of OP/ED/OST/Charasong CD sales, or the publisher is only getting money from sales of the original manga.

      So video discs are only one slice of the pie, and we can’t be entirely sure who is eating that slice. And we don’t know what percentage of the pie it is, and who is eating the rest of said pie.

      • Anonymous says:

        Can you tell or guess how much dvd or bd xebec sells to shops per volume??

        • Progeusz says:

          Xebec is anime studio, not a publisher, they don’t sell discs to shops.
          You should read https://www.someanithing.com/167 to see how much amount of sent discs can vary from data we get about sold discs from Oricon.
          Notice how little data there is and that it’s mostly restricted to bestsellers and even among them differences are huge. Numbers can vary so much there’s very little point in guessing. For example Sakura Trick which completely shocked everyone with claimed number of shipped discs.
          Check out https://www.someanithing.com/sales-faqguide for more info, section 2.

        • something says:

          NBC Universal handles publication and distribution of the DVD/BDs. No, there’s no way to know how many units they shipped to retailers unless they publicly announce it. This only happens once in a great while and generally only for hugely successful series that want to brag about that success as PR. A safe bet is that shipments are at least 15-20% higher than reported sales. But it could be 50% higher, or 100% higher, or who knows!

          Xebec is only the animation studio, they handle production of the show itself but that’s about it. They do not handle things like selling merch or publishing BDs or distributing CDs or negotiating international licenses or publishing manga/novels or arranging live events or all the many things handled by the other (higher-ranked) members of the production committee.

          • Anonymous says:

            Then what is the source of income for xebec??

            • something says:

              In most cases: A group of companies (often a video publisher, print publisher, music label, and other interested parties) get together and decide they want to fund the production of some anime, whether it’s an adaptation of an existing franchise or an original anime. They then select an animation studio to do the work. This selection is usually a mix of 1) who happens to be available and 2) personal connections between the producers and creative staff and people at the studio and 3) who will do it for an acceptable price. If the studio accepts the work, then they get down to planning and production. Xebec was an easy choice for TLR Darkness 2nd because they’d animated all the prior To Love-Ru adaptations, as well as plenty of harem manga adaptations (Love Hina, Kanokon, LadyBato).

              Xebec gets paid a flat fee by the committee for animation production. Depending on the arrangement with the committee, they may also get some cut of revenues, but we don’t know the terms of the contract. This is how the vast majority of animation studios function: they’re paid to do work, and that’s (more or less) it. It doesn’t necessarily or directly matter to the studio whether the show sells a lot of discs, or generates a big manga boost, or gets good ratings. This is how a company like Manglobe stayed in business for so long with nearly all the shows they animated being major bombs in disc sales. They went under because they were mismanaged, not because shows sold terribly, per se.

              The only major exception to this is Kyoto Animation, who have been able to transition over the last few years into a business model where they initiate their own projects, often own the IP, generally lead the committee, and even get merchandising rights and act as original novel publisher (through their KA Esuma line) in some cases. They are in essence what everyone thinks all animation studios are, but they’re actually the only studio that functions that way, and it’s a pretty recent development (started with Chuunibyou).

              The other situation worth noting is companies like Sunrise or Toei or A1 Pictures who are wholly owned subsidiaries of parent companies (Bandai, Toei, Aniplex [and thus Sony] respectively) who lead the committees. This is different from Kyoto Animation, who is not owned by any other companies and is an independent studio.

              • Anonymous says:

                we hear that companies that made anime like rosario vampire sekirei went bankrupt or earthquake stuff thats why they stopped anime.Is that true??

                • AholePony says:

                  If you’re asking about the animation studio Sekirei was done by 7 Arcs and they are still making stuff as far as I can tell. Not sure if maybe one of the other comittee members went out of business, locking up the IP but I guess that’s possible.

                • something says:

                  Generally speaking, an animation studio going bankrupt doesn’t have to kill the chances of sequels being made. They don’t own the IP or fund the adaptation or anything that’s really critical to getting it made. They don’t even own most of the core creative staff of the anime, who tend to be freelancers anyway and can just as well work on the sequel at another studio.

                  We’ve even seen whole studios formed for the purpose of making sequels when the original studio wasn’t available. Durarara!! x2 Shou/Ten/Ketsu is produced by the new studio Shuka, rather than Brain’s Base. But the core staff (director, writer, etc.) are the same people.

                  That said, it certainly doesn’t help, and at the very least can cause delays. See the third Project Itoh film’s delays due to Manglobe’s bankruptcy for example. And Durarara!! presumably took so long to get a sequel because they couldn’t get Brain’s Base and had to set up this new studio. A studio going down could also break up the personal connections that drive so much of the back room negotiating that gets anime made, because certain individual may be out of the business.

                  It’s complicated, but a studio going down does not necessarily kill a sequel.

                  Oh and Seven Arcs is still in business! Their most recent series was Dog Days” earlier this year. They’re just not super prolific. Maybe they’ll finally release that third Nanoha movie one day?

                  • hpulley says:

                    Nanoha is an odd one overall. StrikerS was Universal/Seven arcs but Vivid was Aniplex/Starchild/A-1 pictures… and still doesn’t have any discs coming out as far as I know! The third movie is listed as being done by Seven Arcs but will it really be done by them? I guess we’ll know if/when it comes out.

                    • something says:

                      Yeah was just having a conversation on twitter about how messed up Nanoha is. The way that franchise has been handled post-Movie 2nd has been absolutely bewildering. I liked ViVid a lot but gfdi I can’t import what isn’t sold. And where is that sequel? And why is Movie 3rd totally MIA? Blaaaaaaah!

                    • hpulley says:

                      Yeah, it makes me wonder if Aniplex and Starchild had a big fight and said let’s call the whole thing off. Sounded like a match made in heaven at first but it must have been a production committee nightmare with two big music and anime production partners. It’s the only thing I can think of.

                      I bought the OP and ED discs which weren’t really even anime related, just Nana and Yukarin’s next singles.

                    • Jim says:

                      That wasn’t a brand new partnership, though. Aniplex and Starchild were both on the production committees for the two movies as well, and they’ve also been on committees together for a few other projects like Mardock Scramble and Valvrave. The biggest change was the animation studio switch from Seven Arcs to A-1, and I wonder if that could be part of the problem. Seven Arcs was on the production committees for each of the first three TV shows and both movies, not just animating them, so it’s possible they could still have some residual franchise rights that need to be sorted out somewhere. I also don’t know whether Space Project Co. (the owners of the Triangle Heart games that Nanoha was originally spun off from) still have any stake or say in the franchise at this point, but that’s another potential mouth to feed.

                    • hpulley says:

                      Interesting… I didn’t know that. Thanks.

                      So far it seems Starchild Records is the only one that’s gotten any money back from it!

  9. Minamin says:

    Where do you think the average for Deramas will end up being? Around 28k probably? Thanks.

  10. Higu001 says:

    Are Asterix and Rakudai selling low right? Just asking.

    • something says:

      Yes. The estimate for Asterisk War is 1,753. Rakudai’s is better at 3,143, but that’s with an event ticket application in vol 1 so it’ll drop later on.

      • mambo22 says:

        estimate for valkyrie drive? :)

        • something says:

          Estimate was 2,941 with an event ticket so it’s not doing much either. Looking at its daily rankings for the last week, it might sell about that much or a little less, hard to say. We’ll know on Tuesday.

      • hpulley says:

        Asterisk already has S2 coming in April… nice for me as I enjoyed it but one wonders if the production committee wishes they’d waited.

  11. something says:

    Updated for the full list. Extended ranking later.
