    • Paul von Oberstein says:

      How often there is a season nobody breaks 10k? I don’t think too often.

      • rederoin says:

        Winter tends to be the weakest season.
        2 years ago it also looked bleak. but hoozuki had a big jump.

        • hpulley says:

          Koyomimonogatari I assume will get discs, they’re probably just waiting so they don’t confuse people while Owarimonogatari’s discs are still coming out. That should be at least 10K, hopefully over 20K.

      • something says:

        If nothing in Winter breaks 10k, it would be the first time in the entire blu-ray era.

        The last time the top average was sub-10k was Winter 2007 when Nodame Cantabile topped the list at 9,715. And that’s not a great data point to use because the producers of that show have already stated that it had an unusually long tail and a large percentage of its sales weren’t reported by Oricon. Reporting was also much less thorough in 2007.

        A better comparison would be Hachimitsu to Clover II topping Summer 2006 with only 6,740.

        Either way, we’re almost certainly looking at one of the worst performing seasons in a decade. Whether it’s /the/ worst depends on a bunch of fuzzy factors (relative reliability of Oricon data over time, total number of shows airing in the season, median sales vs top sales, etc.) but it’s definitely gonna be among the worst.

        • Anonymous says:

          Also because shows are easily available online so people stooped purchasing bd and dvd.This is the most important factor.(DXD dropping to 6k and not sure whether TLR will make 6k average).Such is today’s scenario.Or maybe monogatari series stole sales of other shows?

          • something says:

            I honestly don’t think that’s a major factor, certainly not a “cut sales of a series by 40% in less than two years”-level factor! We’ve had some really strong seasons sales-wise in the last few years, the number of anime is much higher, and to start with Japanese anime DVD/BDs aren’t aimed at casual buyers. They’re aimed at the really intense fans of a series (hence the prices), the ones who want to buy because they’ve seen the show, not in spite of it. Sometimes a title reaches a much broader audience, like Osomatsu-san or Shingeki no Kyojin, but by and large expected DVD/BD fanbases are measured in the thousands or low tens of thousands at best.

            Anime has been widely available online (both through legal and illegal channels) for far longer than the gap between the most recent TLR and DxD seasons. Not to forget television, of course! It’s entirely expected that Japanese anime fans will see shows before they buy them. The mindset that seeing a show first makes you less likely to buy it is a very pre-Crunchyroll western-market mindset. You know, back in the days when the western business model was almost entirely reliant on that awful “buy DVDs based purely on inept marketing and word of mouth!” approach. Bad bad days.

            Those days are mostly over in the west now, but more relevant to this site, such days never really existed in Japan.

            So nah, in this case, it’s just a dud season with very little that appeals to people, and those sequels are dropping because that’s what sequels often do. New stuff comes out, people move away from the old, same as it ever was. Holding consistent sales for more than two seasons is really hard for any franchise, especially one that’s successfully moved a lot of its fans onto the original manga or novels. It’s not a sudden shift away from buying physical media. That will happen eventually, but the anime market will be one of the very last to go.

            • Hahalollawl says:

              This isn’t necessarily in conflict with what you’re suggesting, but I do kind of wonder if there is potential reason for concern. I don’t want to suggest an imminent collapse of the market, so I’m being cautious here. But I do kind of wonder if the market could be facing somewhat of a decline. I mean, you could say anime has always been something of a niche market, but I wonder if that sliver of a market is shrinking.

              I get that production committees have multiple revenue streams, but I still feel like there continues to be heavy reliance on the disposable income of a very limited group of consumers, many of whom are within Japan, and the Japanese economy isn’t doing too well. I feel like anime has appeal beyond Japan, but they haven’t figured out a way to capitalize on it. Easier said than done, perhaps.

              And as for the internet, at this point I think it’s kind of like Pandora’s box at this point. Rather than worrying about closing the box, I guess I think they should be trying to find more ways to take advantage of the internet. Streaming is a good step, but I guess I wonder if they could figure out more ways to develop and benefit from the internet. For example, why can’t all of the anime producers band together and make an easy to use high quality streaming site where they put ALL of their shows? Then they could link to merchandise on their site and make it so EASY for viewers to buy stuff if they want! (I think Crunchyroll kinda does this) If they want to keep releasing shows late at night weekly like on a TV schedule then they can still do that, but do they really need to keep airing them on TV? I thought I read somewhere that not only do they not make revenue from commercials in late night shows, but they PAY the station to air their anime. How does that make financial sense?

              Meh, maybe this is just my own incoherent ramblings…

              • Paul von Oberstein says:

                Well, Miyazaki knew how to make nice money out of anime to non-otaku audience so it is not that nobody knows how to do it. It is just that it requires talent.

  3. Ejc says:

    It should’ve been understandable when I specifically wrote, Vol.1 there in the comparison, and what you were linking is the Series Average… but I won’t say anymore since something already explained it.

  4. moodie48 says:

    idk but does a mega hit like osomatsu do something to the next season.

    • something says:

      In theory a huge seller could affect other shows, as there’s only a finite number of people to buy things and those people have finite money. If one show takes a really big piece of the pie, there’s less pie for everyone else!

      …Ooooor not quite. Because not everyone, even avid collectors, is going to spend all the way to their upper limit every season. Theoretical sales are a lot larger than what realistic buying behavior will actually allow. Buying habits are going to be far more heavily affected by whether there’s desirable stuff airing than how big a slice of the pie the top seller is taking. If Winter had super appealing shows, it’d be doing well regardless of Fall’s hits.

      I’d also posit that very big titles get very big by bringing in a lot of people who don’t buy anime regularly. Those people represent a net gain of anime buyers, rather than a zero-sum reshuffling of regular buyers. Most monster titles are still followed by big hits the next season. Bakemonogatari was followed by a 25k and a 13k. Shingeki was followed by a 42k and a 29k. Love Live! season 2 was followed by two 20ks and two 10ks. Madoka was followed by a 32k, 28k, and three 10-20ks.

      Any effect big shows do have should be most keenly felt by shows courting very similar demographics, not by an entire season. Few Winter shows should be hit by Osomatsu-san. You miiight be able to argue it’s siphoning sales off of, I dunno… Durarara, Rakugo, Norn9, Prince of Stride and a handful of others? Maaaybe?

      But that’s impossible to prove, and we’ve seen multiple shows with similar demographics excel in subsequent seasons or even at the same time. Even if Osomatsu-san were hitting all of those shows it still wouldn’t explain why /everything else/ is doing so poorly. Its success should be all but irrelevant to Phantom World, Dagashikashi, Komugi R, Dimension W, that new Muv Luv thing, and the countless other shows putting up a mediocre to awful showing.

      tl;dr Major hits could have a limited and narrowly directed effect on shows sharing similar demographics. But no show, no matter how big, should be able to depress a whole season’s sales anywhere near enough to explain Winter 2016. We might joke about Osomatsu-san taking all the money, but it’s not meant seriously. Winter just lacks anything that’s getting more than a small group of people excited.

      • primadog says:

        The shocking mega-success of Frozen probably depressed domestic anime sales a bit.

        • something says:

          I dunno, it only cost ¥4k and it was a one-shot release, being a movie. It would also overwhelmingly be selling to people who aren’t typically part of the of the anime market. So it should have been irrelevant for anything we track here, and maybe a small effect on mainstream family movies

          • primadog says:

            My claim is based on JVA’s report last year:

            2013 Animation – General
            74.6 billion yen Domestic
            4.4 billion yen International

            2014 Animation – General
            64.4 billion yen Domestic
            12.7 billion yen International


            I think these data points make a good case that mega-hit can swallow up consumer dollars in the Japanese home video market. To be sure, I don’t think consumers were actually making purchase decisions between Frozen and say, Fate/Kaleid liner Prisma llya 2wei! They probably share little in demographics.

            I’m just using Frozen as a clear example here. What about Madoka in 2011 Winter, or Bakemonogatari in 2009? It’s harder to say at a glance. No one has done the advanced statistics to get us a clear answer yet, but a definite negative would be premature.

            • something says:

              I don’t see the cause and effect relationship here though. You have to look at what happened in the years prior to this – 2013 was an unnaturally big year in general, best since 2007. Compare 2014 to the couple years before 2013 and we see a pretty consistent pattern of modest decline from 2010 to now: 70 > 68 > 67 [2013 ¥74bn anomaly] > 64.

              I’d read that as 2013 being the anomaly, not 2014. If 2013 had been in line with previous and more like 66-65, we wouldn’t even be thinking twice about whether Frozen had an effect.

              Hmm speaking of JVA I wonder when 2015 is out… Still only have the monthly breakdown which doesn’t provide genre sales yet. Overall, the market is down on DVD and up (but less so) on BD, as expected from physical media sales these days. At 95% of 2014 revenue, 93% of unit sales, and 95% of the number of releases. I’d like to see where anime specifically is though, it always holds better than the market at large.
