Winter update:
Grimgar v1 sells 3364/871, total 4,235. 8% under/6% overestimated. Thought it might push at 5k wk1 given decent Animate placing but this could still be just about enough to lock in #3 of Winter if it pushes over 5k total and averages >4k.

PSO2 v1 sells 1510/245 BDs, 399/699 DVDs, total 2,853. RE BDs from extended. Can’t do the estimate %s because Stalker didn’t break it down RE/LE but apparently they did exist.

Dagashi Kashi v1 sells 1750/276, total 2,026. 24% under/49% overestimated.

AoKana v1 sells 1003/128, total 1,131. DVDs from extended. 10/53% overestimated.

Fall update:
Haikyuu!! s2 v3 sells 6207/5122, total 11,329.

Yuru Yuri s3 v4 sells 2834/264, total 3,098.

Shingeki Chuu v3, final volume, sells 562/443, total 1,005. Series average: 1,602.

Osomatsu-san v1 adds 740 DVDs, total 106,932.
v2 adds 961 DVDs, total 77,377.

Gochiusa s2 v3 adds 862/196, total 10,749. DVDs from extended.

K s2 v6 adds 485 BDs, total 3,860.
v7, final volume, adds 567 BDs, total 4,526. Series average: 3,909.

Past seasons:

OVAs, Movies, Boxsets etc:
Nozaki-kun BD Box sells 3,447. Low MSRP so will need to get to about 5556 to hit ¥100m which is probably unrealistic, but 3.4k is a solid enough unit number.

Monmusu OVA sells 3,247. BD-only release.

Sakura Trick BD Box sells 728. + 4 from me! Not much, but slightly higher than I expected (figured it’d be like 500). If it gets a wk2 (extendeds at best because next week is huge) it’ll be at >1/3rd the singles average, which I guess is pretty normal.

Garupan OVA adds 453 BDs, total 57,480.

Moribito BD box adds 296, total 1,099. This is a re-release, but it’s being reported as wk2 of the September 2012 release.

  1. Gatmar says:

    Looks Like Grimgar is going to be a decent Sale…not a big one but considering the average rate of winter titles sales…it is pretty good.

    I am not suprised by Ajin’s low sales..first of all the first movie sold before it and a lot of people don’t really need to buy another set as the movie and tv series pretty much cover the same thing..except the tv has just a bit more addtrional scenes..the cgi in this one however is not good even by japanese standards…compared to other CGI series such as Sidonia and Arpeggio it was worse made…the frame rate in particuler was worse in Ajin when compared to those two so im not suprised by the low sale.

    Dagashi Kashi also is not a surprised. it is a good slice and life comedy but it is mainly just product advertisement series…a lot of the Japanese goods it promotoes does not even remotely relate with western audience and in japan people are not exactly going to jump with joy every time they see one of there candies mentione in high regard so yeah those was also expected.

    So Grimgar is expected to average 4 to 5k
    Konsuba about 7k
    Ajin 1k
    Dagashi Kashi about 1.5k

    out of the winter titles i have watched that im still curious is how ERASED, GATE S2, Konosuba and Pandora what there average sales are going to be…any ideas?

    • Progeusz says:

      ERASED will sell bad, as expected of a bad mystery show. Good riddance.

      KonoSuba might be higher than 7k. The prediction of v1 is almost at 9k and it’s doing well at every store other than female-oriented Animate so it shouldn’t be highly overestimated, if at all. 8k average looks very real.

      Pandora isn’t doing well at all and it saddens me deeply. Sure, production values are low but it’s handled nicely and doesn’t detract from viewing experience, similar to KonoSuba. Last episodes weren’t as good as first one but Pandora never ranked well… maybe because they knew about manga unlike us?

      • Gatmar says:

        Out of the Series i have watched so far… Konosuba, GATE, Grimgar, Ajin, Pandora and Dagashi are the ones i finishe to the end…winter titles have always been the weakest season to see anime but this year it was above average.

        ERASED is going to end conclusive so it does not matter if it will sell or not.

        Dagashi is good but it really is just a Slice of life/Candy promotion series so im not bother by it.

        Konosuba is probably my fav of the winter and the sales and reception have been very good..so much that the producers decided to cash in and make a s2 as soon as the reception skyrocketed both in anime sales but even BIGGER LN boosts sales…u can tell it was not planned just by statements from the voice actors and author in there twitter accounts.

        Ajin, Unfortunately while i am not against CGI series..such as Sidonia and Arpeggio…this series was very poorly animated even by cgi standards so im not surprised it failed in sales. its a shame as the story is actually kind of good.

        Pandora..Yeah i expected it won’t sell much but from it is going, it looks like it will end at a good point so its good.

        GATE is the one i am still weary off…Originally i tought it will adapt up to the dragon arc..which would have been a good point to end but since they adapted the upheveal arc…it will leave some cliffhangers..so i really hope that A-1 might have already planned another cour to finish it off…as the last two arcs can easily be made into another cour and wrap everything up.

        Grimgar was actually a nice surprise…it is not a huge seller for sure but compared to other titles it is doing good..also from what i heard the way they animated it actually improved some of the flaws the light novel had and made the series make more sense..so there is a chance for another season for it too…but not guaranteed as usual.

        Well this winter season has been fun and all but the Spring season is shaping up to be even better i already have over 10 titles on PWL so i can’t wait XD

  2. Mami Kawada Lover says:

    So… below 1k average for AoKana confirmed?

    • Gatmar says:

      Pretty much yeah.., Apparently the anime did not live to the expectation of the fanbase so not a lot of sales

      • Jim says:

        They basically took a boilerplate eroge VN romance story and adapted it into a full-fledged sports anime instead, with two of the girls as the co-main characters of the anime instead of the player avatar. Most of the complaints I’ve seen fall into one of two categories, either, “Where’s my het romance?” or, “Why aren’t they giving the MC anything to do?” with a smaller side dish of, “I hate the animation.” Frankly I’ve really enjoyed the series and I’m HAPPY they did something different instead of just following the standard paint-by-numbers formula for VN adaptations. IMO, the less I have to put up with yet another series centered around Generic McBoring-kun, the better. Unfortunately, it seems like my opinion is the minority view.

        OTOH, Daitoshokan in 2014 was as faithful and paint-by-numbers formulaic as an eroge adaptation gets, and it sold even worse than Aokana. So who really knows what the magic secret is?

        • Mami Kawada Lover says:

          If they wanted to give more emphasis to the sports, that would have been alright, but the problem is that they reduced Masaya to a non-entity. Which was a bad decision given how the plot unfolded. People keep saying “they could have done the Koihime Musou route” but such a thing is an even bigger gamble and probably wouldn’t work out in the end.

      • Anon says:

        >adapt a moege
        >remove the male MC, fanservice and romance
        >focus on the sport but use CG to animate it

        A risky recipe that failed miserably. I read the VN like a year ago when Japan was all over it and only watched the first episode but the complaints are pretty much the same everywhere. They failed to pander the original fanbase and it wasn’t captivating enough to gain new fans.
        This isn’t the first time Sprite shits on their own fanbase/gamerbase, makes me wonder why did they allow Gonzo to take this direction for the adaptation (let’s not forget that this was a very pretentious project from Sprite’s side with the anime adaptation announced even before the game came out).

        • Mami Kawada Lover says:

          >This isn’t the first time Sprite shits on their own fanbase/gamerbase
          Could you elaborate on that?

    • Progeusz says:

      Far from confirmed. It might be very consistent in sales (predictions are actually better for other vols) and with wks2 in extended rankings it can definitely stay above 1k.
      v1 is also sold out right now.

  3. Rick Grimes says:

    ahh..better sales than I had expected. especially Grimgar.
    As for a second season..its highly likely since its A1 pictures. Anything with even a little marketing potential can make them go for it.
    And I guess Erased sales dont matter much as it is a notaminA show. I guess the volumes will we cheap as well.
    Aijin series was never meant to sell. It was made to promote the Movie series.

    • something says:

      Bokumachi (Erased) is not out yet, but it’s actually releasing in two boxsets rather than cheaper singles. Two sets, ¥18000 each on BD. Equivalent to a six volume ¥6000/disc release.

      Being noitaminA doesn’t mean video sales don’t matter, though. It depends who is on the committee. There’s a lot of heavily Aniplex-funded shows on noitaminA in recent years, and Aniplex is the video publisher. This is the case for Bokumachi too, so Aniplex at least will care about disc sales (even if it doesn’t matter to every committee member).

    • BlackPoint says:

      Could be better really at grimgar for now it seems its gonna have aroud 4k average and thats just not good most the time but grimgar as i heard they got nice suport from all the music thats its using, so yeh if they see its worth it we might get more but we will see there are animes that sold better from A-1 but didnt get a sequel so will have to wait and see.

      • Progeusz says:

        The problem is, Grimar’s music isn’t selling well at all. And the show put quite some focus on it.

  4. youlikerice says:

    If Grimgar is a locked for third, then what are the other two? I’m assuming one is KonoSuba obviously, but what is the other one?

  5. Progeusz says:

    Koyomimonogatari is definite #1 with already more than 11k points despite being released in three months.

    • something says:

      Yeah it’s looking like:

      1) Koyomimonogatari
      2) Konosuba
      3-4) Gate s2/Grimgar
      5) Prince of Stride[?]
      6) does it matter by this point? probably Durarara!! x2 Ketsu since v1 had a modest ticket boost.
      7) pso2? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ divine gate? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
      8) how can anime sales be real if anime isn’t real??
      9) [[∞★drifting★through★the★incomprehensible★vastness★of★interstellar★space∞]]
      10) entropy. heat death of the cosmos.

      Looks about right.

  6. Anonymous says:

    Its a shame that japan has only anime like america has hollywood. But still japan does not manage to keep anime up.People do not bother to buy animes now and anime era might be coming to an end.Then japan will be left with nothing to show except mangas and light novels to be sold in japan only.Japanese animes have already faded outside japan and so no dubbed animes.

    • something says:

      This is jumping, like, all the guns in the world.

      • Jac says:

        A lot of people like to proclaim anime as ‘dying’ and ‘faded’ whenever they a hit a season where they don’t enjoy the shows.

        It’s like that guy who gets robbed once, and suddenly according to him crime rates are out of control all over the world. *rolls eyes*

        • something says:

          That happens a lot for sure, though the discussion here is driven more by sales figures. Still, I think it’s very easy to overestimate the importance of home video sales going up or down. It matters a lot to certain companies, and those companies carry a lot of the investment burden of many anime, but anime exists within a really complicated and interconnected multimedia space that’s not as simple as an Oricon report.

          So about all we can say is “home video sales were down” but that’s true everywhere, and the anime industry has ways of dealing with that.

    • BlackPoint says:

      i think its actualy getting now more popular due all the streaming on the web, befor they pretty much depended mostly only on BD-DVD sales but now they also sell the rights for streaming so they already get a piece of the money from there and the whole streaming is only getting better with more animes and more countries being able to watch it

    • Ejc says:

      Just saying, but “anime” is both singular and plural. Thus, the plural of anime is “anime”, not “animes”.

  7. moonnya says:

    Well I have tried to guess which TV show to hit 10k sales this season. The answer seems to be none.

    • Progeusz says:

      Koyomimonogatari will easily double that. KonoSuba v1 will hit 10k but other vols most likely not.

      • Paul von Oberstein says:

        Koyomi was not on TV though.

        How about spring season? Macross likely breaks 10k, but how about anybody else?

        • something says:

          Weekly ONAs are traditionally included, it doesn’t necessarily have to air on TV. Structurally they’re the same, they just broadcast online rather than over television channels.

        • something says:

          Too early to say other than Macross. Jojo miiight have a shot, but if it drops again (which would be normal), it’ll be below 10k this time. The TV edit of Gundam UC… well, the OVA sold massively, maybe so much that everyone who would theoretically be interested already bought it. Everything else is just impossible to say before stuff is solicited and starts ranking.

          • Paul von Oberstein says:

            Has 2ch given up doing their usual new season sales guess ballot?

            • something says:

              Dunno, I haven’t checked the actual sales threads in a very long time. I just check the urisure archive posts for the full weekly lists.

  8. BlackPoint says:

    Wow that upcomming list of releases gonna be really full, cant wait too see how some of the new animes gonna sell :)

  9. h5r says:

    • Mami Kawada Lover says:

      >1,131 – Ao no Kanata no Four Rhythm
      Still pretty disappointing. Hoping that this week more sales will be added, but at this rate, a sub-1k average isn’t farfetched.

      • Progeusz says:

        It is.

        • something says:

          It depends. Say at best v1 BD gets a wk2 and adds… 200?

          Then if the remaining volumes go something like 900 > 850 > 800 > 750 > 700, the average is 995.

          Basically it all comes down to what if any wk2s it gets in the extendeds and how much it drops from v2 onward. But the 128 DVDs being added to the average do greatly decrease the chance of a sub-1k average. Without them it would be significantly more likely than it is because it’s unlikely DVDs will rank for v2+.

          • Progeusz says:

            While possible, that’s a bit harsh estimate for remaining vols, I think the series will be more consistent. A lot will depend on wk2s as you said, now that we know DVD will contribute to the average. Extended rankings help so much with shows like that!

            Truth be told, I partly wanted the guy to stop drawing conclusions so hastily because I have seen him do that quite often.

  11. Chad says:

    Sore ga Seiyuu must have lost A LOT of money for its studio. All but two of the volumes sold less than 1,000 copies. Volume 4 sold a mere 654 copies TOTAL. So there’s no second season coming for this underrated show.

    • something says:

      Whether a show lost money, let alone how much, is very difficult to say. We can usually assume that shows with low disc sales probably just have smaller fanbases and thus are likely to make less money in all areas, not just video. Sure. But it’s never a sure thing. While I personally doubt Sore ga Seiyuu had big non-media revenue streams to draw on, we can’t know for sure.

      Normally I’d also say not to worry about the studio when shows fail because studios don’t pay (much, if anything) for shows to get made. They get paid for their work by a production committee, who funds the show. In this particular case however, it looks like Gonzo may have led the committee, which would mean the invested the most. So yes, they (or well the company that largely owns them) could have lost money.

      But typically it’s not the animation studio whose finances are directly at stake.
