Yep. That Osomatsu-san domination.

 
Fall update:
Osomatsu-san v1 sells 35795/43313, total 79,108. 111/57% underestimated. Ahahahahahaha. Say hello to the second ever 100k TV anime volume of the millennium. Event tickets are scary. Animate is scary. Forget beating Owari for Fall, that much is guaranteed now no matter how bad the event ticket drop is. We should be talking about it beating UBW and Utapri for top seller of 2015, period. With v1 set to go over 100k, the drop for the non-ticket volumes would need to be REALLY NASTY for it to not manage an easy 40k+ average and be comfortably above those two.
v2 has an event ticket as well, and the Stalker estimate for that is also >40k so it could do nearly as well as v1. v3+ estimates are cut by half but half of 100k is… well. Yeah.

Concrete Revolutio v1 sells 888 as a BD-only release. 34% overestimated. RIP.

Comet Lucifer v1 sells 223 as a BD-only release. From extended rankings. 36% overestimated. RIP.

Owarimono v2 sells 21373/2773, total 24,146. Actually a slight improvement on v1wk1.
v1 adds 472 BDs, total 27,399.

One Punch Man v2 sells 6006/2522, total 8,528.
v1 adds 527/301, total 12,016. DVDs from extended.

Starmyu v2 sells 4191/3976, total 8,167. Event ticket. Only 40 discs below v1wk1 and that one wasn’t /that/ backloaded so v2 could hit 10k as well, maybe. At least 9k!

G Tekketsu v2 sells 6865/791, total 7,656. Down from 9.2k v1wk1 so notable but not huge.

Fafner Exodus s2 v2 sells 5200/710, total 5,910.

Shinmai Maou s2 v2 sells 2643/702, total 3,345.

Rakusai Kishi v2 sells 2296/528, total 2,824.

Valkyrie Drive v2 sells 1845/473, total 2,318.

Seraph s2 v5 sells 1337/888, total 2,225.

Asterisk v2 sells 1652/474, total 2,126.

Hacka Doll v2, final volume, sells 1,441. Series average: 1,565.

Heavy Object v2 sells 1075/233, total 1,308. DVDs

Aria AA v2 sells 1,028 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Young Black Jack v2 sells 422/432, total 854. BDs from extended.

Tai-Madou v2 sells 665/166, total 831. DVDs from extended.

Sakurako-san v2 sells 488 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

AoKikan v5 sells 368/411, total 779. BDs from extended.

Haikyuu s2 v1 adds 1251/1230, total 18,706.

v1s not yet ranked in either format:
Comet Lucifer [stalker estimate: 348]

 
Summer update:
Overlord v5 sells 8969/1341, total 10,310. Still hitting those 10k wk1s. Such a consistent performer.

Symphogear s3 v5 sells 8247/847, total 9,094.

Charlotte v5 sells 4860/855, total 5,715.

God Eater v4 sells 760 standalone BDs plus 5711 OffShot bundles, total 6,648. God Eater’s sales are so silly, and I don’t think they have anything to do with the anime at this point. The bundle portion of sales is vastly higher than Idolmaster (which was about half and half) so it definitely seems to be selling as a game first, anime very very distant second.

Gate v5 sells 4510/906, total 5,416.

TLR Darkness s2 v6 sells 4068/968, total 5,036.

Non Non s2 v5 sells 4148/401, total 4,549. DVDs from extended. Should hold a 5k average, tho it’s sad to see it drop from v1.

Prisma Illya s3 v5, final volume, sells 3244/343, total 3,587. DVDs from extended. Series average: 4,309. Down from 7,102 s1 and 5,502 s2.

Prison School v5 sells 2801/671, total 3,472. One volume left, on track for about 4.5k.

Ushio to Tora v5 sells 1775/578, total 2,353.

Gakkou Gurashi v5 sells 1889/429, total 2,318.

Drrr s3 v6, final volume, sells 1370/799, total 2,169. Series average: 2,424. So this series has gone 18,311 > 4,603 > 2,424 and still has to drag its corpse through a whole final cour. Yeesh.

Shimoneta v6, final volume, sells 1824/189, total 2,013[/x]. DVDs from extended. Series average: 2,236.

Junjou s3 v5 sells 868/1041, total 1,909.

Shirayukihime v5 sells 1065/696, total 1,761.

Joukamachi v5 sells 1126/225, total 1,351. DVDs from extended.

Ranpo Kitan v5, final volume, sells 491/330, total 821. DVDs from extended. Series average: 844.

SoreSeiyuu v5 sells 674 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Monmusu v5 adds 485/149, total 5,144. DVDs from extended.

 
Past seasons:
Deremas v8 sells 7496/659, plus 15,720 G4U, total 23,875. Likely wrapping up around 28-29k until and unless we get Media Create yearly data so we can actually get beyond one week of reporting for the G4U volumes. 30k average might be possible if so.

HS DxD s3 v6, final volume, sells 4394/1288, total 5,682. Series average: 6,243, should end around 6,350 or so. Down from 10.0k and 9.4k previous seasons, but still solid, and the volume on volume consistency this season was remarkable.

Gintama° v7 sells 2616/2619, total 5,235.

Arslan v7 sells 1737/1136, total 2,873.

Yuki-chan v8, final volume, sells 1532/260, total 1,792. DVDs from extended. Series average: 2,372.

Shokugeki no Souma v7 sells 1224/379, total 1,603. DVDs From extended.

 
OVAs, Movies, Boxsets etc:
Space Dandy BD Box sells 2,935. It’ll at least triple the TV series average, which is impressive. Though this is an incredibly cheap release at only ¥18k for a two cour show, which surely helped.

Brigadoon BD Box sellx 1,122.

WUG Movie 3 sells 1,862 as a BD-only release.

Love Live Movie adds 439/176, total 232,463.

Garupan OVA adds 494 BDs, total 53,938 in wk49.

Persona 3 Movie 3 adds 1942/514 LEs, 101 RE BDs, total 23,610.

    Well, what a way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Osomatsu TV series

  2. Avatar Hahalollawl says:

    Are there factors that you like to look at with regard to event tickets to better help predict their impact on sales, or is it just a total crapshoot as far as how much impact they have?

    Like maybe an event featuring a popular singer/seiyuu event could be more impactful?

    • Somewhat of a crapshoot, though you tend to see male seiyuu events have more of an effect than female seiyuu events, even if they’re at the same popularity level. It’s more “if this show is popular, the volumes with event applications tend to have higher estimates than shows that aren’t as popular.” Then you get into the “what makes a show popular” question and it gets into the crapshoot area.

    • Avatar hpulley says:

      All 7 of them are very popular male seiyuu. All of them on stage together is just a dream ticket. Their theme song CD has sold over 100K so this really isn’t that surprising. 50K was my expectation so it definitely did much better than that but 100K wasn’t out of the question with those CD sales.

      It’s all about the seiyuu. Popular ones, lots of them = great event ticket bump, like Mizuki Nana in Symphogear Live or idol anime like LoveLive and UtaPri. If it’s a concert live then the ticket is gold. If it is just a talk/game show then it won’t have much effect. A mini-live plus talk event will usually land in the middle of the two.

      • something something says:

        Yeah it’s a crapshoot, but your best bet is to look at how the related music CDs are selling. If those are really popular, it probably signals stronger potential for the event ticket. Once I saw Osomatsu-san’s ED topped 100k, I started thinking it could easily crush 50k wk1 (though I always try to keep estimates conservative).

        At some point, you’re basically selling a concert/event disc more than you’re selling an anime disc, and we should really be thinking of it along those lines.

        • Avatar hpulley says:

          Yeah, this one was really there for us to see all along with the sales of the ED CD by those 7 seiyuu. The writing was on the wall. That level of CD sales really means the ticket should have a very high effect. Music is expensive in Japan so those buyers are already showing they’re serious about it. LoveLive was the same.

          Mizuki Nana normally sells more discs of her own single for Symphogear than her charasong single so the charasong single is a better indicator of the ticket sales than those of her own single. Her own concerts also include the Symphogear (and Dog Days et al) songs so if you are a Mizuki Nana fan first and a Symphogear fan second then you’ll tend to buy her singles anyways and will just go to her own concerts instead. But she still pulls up the event sales of Symphogear quite a bit; I don’t think the show would have been nearly as big a hit without her.

          I never checked Cross Ange to see if it had an event and if so, if she sang there.

    Heh I went to bed last night thinking of Haikyuu S1 v1 Stalker estimates and its actual wk1 sales and here we are.

    Osomatsu-san is a good show.

  5. Avatar AnimePhoenix says:

    Osomatsu domination! I never thought I’d live to see the day when a show popular with fujoshi would pull such high numbers. It was always a dream for me.

    Stamyu v2 had barely any drop, yay! <33 I'm so glad! It got sales even when such a monster like Osomatsu-san is around. We should see a drop with volume 3 but hopefully it can get ~5k for volume 3+.

  6. Avatar Mari says:

    What other old anime should they revive that male otaku would latch to. Sally the Witch?

    • something something says:

      I honestly don’t think that its success has much to do with it being a revival of an old series. Perhaps that gave it some prior name recognition, but how much of today’s BD-buying fanbase was familiar with the original Osomatsu-kun? Very few I’d think.

    • Avatar Paul von Oberstein says:

      Sennin Buraku

  7. Avatar anon2 says:

    “Event tickets are scary. Animate is scary.”

    Forget that, FUJOSHI are scary. Do they have more latent buying power than the 20-30’s male otaku demographic? Is there going to be a shift in series produced to target them more?

    • something something says:

      Fujoshi are definitely a subset of Osomatsu’s female fanbase but this level of success is being driven pretty hard by seiyuu/male idol fans too. It’s the event ticket that’s pushing this and maybe the second volume to ~100k after all. Fujoshi I’d count more as the base support that keeps all the non-event ticket volumes high. (Not that these are mutually exclusive groups of people, of course! Buying demographics aren’t something we can easily simplify with labels.)

      And Osomatsu-san is just the latest in a series of shows popular with women, fujoshi or otherwise. They’ve really come into their own as a DVD/BD buying force over the last five years or so. There will continue to be shows made with that market in mind, though probably never in quite the raw numbers we see shows made for primarily male audiences.

      It’s hard to distinguish between whether women are more likely to “clump” on a couple shows a year and drive them to huge success, or whether there’s just a higher percentage of hits there because the overall number of shows aimed at them is so much lower and they thus have less shows to spread their money around on. Chicken, egg, and all that.

      • Avatar anon2 says:

        Frankly I’m just surprised they managed to retool an old comedy/gag manga into a product that would actually appeal to that consumer base in today’s modern market anyway. That must take some crazy skill.

        So the insane sales are a combination (with overlap) of a core female fanbase, people gunning for that Sakurai/Nakamura/Fukuyama/Kamiya/Ono/Irino ticket, and some measure of nostalgia?

        At any rate, I think the first non-ticket volumes will speak to the show’s actual sales strength. Too bad we still need to wait a couple months for those…

    • Avatar fiveun says:

      Isn’t that a case of it being more concentrated due to less shows being made to mine this demographic?

      To exemplify: Youtube’s English Speaking anime community is larger than any other, but if you were to look at the most subbed anime channels you will see a large deal of Latino or Russian channel on the top 10. That happens simply because while the English watchers have a large selection of channels to watch, Spanish, Portuguese and Russian speaking people usually only have two or three.

      Of course on this case there is also a case of good decision making and the fact this is a 50+ years old franchise. Still, all this “Fujo Domination”, like some way too scared people like to call it, is more of a case of a large market getting too few products, so the profit stacks on the good ones.

      • Avatar Mari says:

        “Still, all this “Fujo Domination”, like some way too scared people like to call it, is more of a case of a large market getting too few products, so the profit stacks on the good ones.”

        Is that mean the otaku stuff is going to get plateaued?

        • something something says:

          We already get a ridiculous amount of shows each season. More than is healthy for the market, if you ask me. I expect the number of shows per season to plateau, sure, and likely drop at some point, but not because women have crowded men out. It seems silly to me to worry about that. Any drop would be because there were too many shows getting animated in the first place.

        • Avatar primadog says:

          Variety is good for the market. Reliance on otaku dollars had always been one of the great failings of the late night anime market. More target demographics would just mean a bigger, healthier market.

          • Avatar AnimePhoenix says:

            Agreed! As something said, compared to five years ago, female otaku and fujoshi (yes, two separate things, people!) get more shows aimed at them now. And variety is good!

            Female otaku and fujoshi will never get the same amount of shows male otaku get per season (at least, not yet) but I’d like to see the number of shows increase some more so we have at least 4-5 more shows per season than we have now.

            Speaking of seiyuu and male idol fans, one thing to note is the rising popularity of 2D male idols. Ensemble Stars, Idolish7, B-Project, Side-M…and more. Enstars and Idolish7 (or AiNana) in particular are quite strong. Enstars is geting an anime and so is Tsukiuta, another male idol franchise.

            • Avatar Mari says:

              Here’s my main problem.

              Will certain subgenres for otaku are going to get stuck on like “slice-of-life” or “pick-your-light-novel” harem-like titles? Otaku stuff needs to expand to other avenues that even they didn’t know they ever wanted especially when were talking about MALE casts which are ubiquitous to ANY genre compared to female casts

              Titles aimed for male otakus don’t even have ones that are equivalent to Osumatsu-san or Black Blood Blockade or any sports shows sans baseball. It’s pathetic on their standpoint where they should demand equivalent girl verisons.

              • something something says:

                There’s nothing stopping guys from liking KekkaiSen or Kurobas or whatever (and many do). Hell most of the sports shows popular with women originated as shounen manga. That they are popular with women is not the same as saying they are unpopular with men, or adverse to having male fans.

                I think you have a too narrow view of “titles aimed at male otaku” but more than that, the whole focus on “otaku” is misdirected. Why does it have to be aimed at otaku, specifically?

                The successful shows of Fall 2015, to take the latest example, have been:
                Osomatsu-san
                Owarimonogatari
                Haikyuu!! Second Season

                Kidou Senshi Gundam Tekketsu no Orphens
                One Punch Man
                Starmyu
                Soukyuu no Fafner Exodus season 2

                The only show here that I could see having a minimal male fanbase is Starmyu. I’m not familiar enough with Osomatsu-san to categorize it. The rest are either popular with men, or popular with women but not inherently unappealing to men, or pretty gender neutral. I mean we’re not seeing a top series list dominated by otoge or BL adaptations.

                If your concern is that shows with majority male audiences fall into genres and styles you don’t like, that’s not women’s fault. The shows made for men are the shows men buy. Money talks. Sports for example: Why aren’t there more sports shows without large female fanbases? Because guys almost never support sports shows! The only ones that did well tended to be morning/kids’ shows. There was never a big audience for late night sports shows until women started buying them in droves.

    excuse my ignorance but is there a chance osomatsu can actually detrone bakemono?

    • Avatar Ejc says:

      Very unlikely. Vol.1 and 2 will be high (105-110K and 90-95K I’m guessing), but Vol.3 to Vol.8 will most likely be significantly lower, perhaps 50-70% lower then Vol.1 and Vol.2, if the event ticket drop is similar to UtaPri Season 3.

    • something something says:

      With only one event ticket, not a chance even if v1 goes well over 100k. With two, we theoretically have a competition on our hands, but it requires the non-ticket volumes to be almost impossibly beastly, or the surprise introduction of a third event ticket at the end.

      If we assume…
      • v1 sells 100k. That seems like a given at this point. It only needs 20% of sales to be wk2+ to manage that, and that looks easy! wk2 numbers will make this a lot clearer though. If it adds well under 10k next week, then 100k might only barely be reached.
      • v2 sells 90k. The current Stalker estimate is the same as v1’s, it’s been ranking crazy well at Animate (the only thing selling better has been Osomatsu-san v1 sooo…) and it’s also an event ticket volume.
      • v3 sells 60k. The estimate is currently a bit over half of v1-2’s.
      • v4+ each drop 10% on the previous volume, that’d be 54k, 48k, 43k, 39k, and 35k. The drop will probably not be this steep, but let’s run the numbers like that anyway.

      That would bring us to roughly 470k discs, or a little under 60k average.

      So even with a relatively conservative approach, it’s damn high up there. No challenge to Bakemonogatari, though. Maybe I’m overestimating v2, but I’m almost certainly not overestimating v1 and I’m assuming a pretty decent degree of volume on volume drop for v3 onwards. More likely it’d bottom out by v5 or so and those last few vols would be very close.

      79k is still very far away regardless. Even if v3+ all sold 60k each with zero drop, the average would still be a under 70k. v3+ would all need to sell roughly 75k before it could get around 80k and overtake Bake’s level. That or the two event ticket volumes need to go considerably higher than 100k. If they both got to around 140k (which sounds ridiculous to me) it could top Bake with 60k for every volume from 3 onward. These are very optimistic scenarios either way.

      It should easily pass Shingeki (52k) and Fate/Zero (52k) and claim #7 at least. It’s possible that Gundam SEED (59k) and Nisemonogatari (61k) are within reach. Love Live! s2 (67k) and Gundam SEED Destiny (69k) are much (much) iffier, but I suppose not impossible if the ticket volumes exceed even our current high expectations. Madoka Magica (71k) is a huge stretch, and then there would be a yawning chasm to cross to reach Bakemonogatari (79k).

    Jesus christ, those osomatsu san sales. I thought it would sell like 40k

    not complaining though, I love the show

    expect the second volume of Osomatsu-san’s BD/DVD to outsell the first one because aside from the event tickets, the one who is in the cover for vol 2 has got to be the fandom’s favorite porn star i mean Matsu

    • something something says:

      Cover art doesn’t have that sort of effect on sales. Nice cover art is good, sure, but it won’t drive thousands of additional sales by itself. Anyone that into the show and characters is probably buying all the volumes already. Now, some physical extras bundled with a release (like a poster or character song CD or what have you) can have a significant effect if a character is /super/ popular. But not covers alone.

      • Avatar lmaollama says:

        point taken and don’t worry as my previous comment is with a snide mockery to the Karamatsu girls cult that this fandom has spawned because man those girls are just so thirsty to anything that has his face on it. but i wouldn’t be surprised if vol 2 would sell well or even outsell vol 1 especially if vol 2 includes, aside from the event tickets, that one episode which catapulted the fandom’s most popular Matsus. like this reminds me of an AKB48 senbatsu for some reason.

    Why is Gakkou Gurashi! v5 is not listed here? Based on last week’s post, I thought the volume 5 will come with this week’s ranking. Or is it that bad it didn’t make the cut?

    • something something says:

      The preliminary list threshold is too high. It’ll be in the full list that comes out at the end of the week. It’ll do like 1.4k BDs (and another ~300 DVDs in the extended rankings) based on previous volumes’ sales.

  12. something something says:

    Full list posted. Tons of stuff added, even the DVD list had some additons.

    Extended rankings some time tomorrow or Sunday.

    In your ‘Summer update’ section, “Prison School v2” should be “Prison School v5”.
