This is a very depressing looking season. Normally five new series debuting between 5.9-7.9k in the same week would be a reason to feel good about a strong middle, but this middle has no roof above it! In a healthy spring, 2-3 of these would be clearing 10k easily with Delta being a mega-hit. Instead none of these can hope to get near 10k and Delta itself is even marginal.

Spring has just used up all of its shows with any real potential except for Delta and maaaaaaaybe Joker Game. And this is what it has to show for it? By no means are 10k+ series all that matters for the industry, but big hits *do* help finance the more marginal and mid-tier titles, so seeing Spring totally bombing out on major hits is pretty depressing.


Spring update:
Jojo pt4 v1 sells 6315/1653, total 7,968. 14.1/29.1% overestimated. Event ticket. Lowest wk1 for a Jojo disc thus far despite the event ticket. 1st of Spring’s 3 remotely possible 10k hopes: not happening.

Kabaneri v1 sells 6081/799, total 6,880. 29.5/37.4% overestimated. Event ticket. It was always a strong possibility that Stalker /not/ applying any price penalty (it came in just under the threshold) was inflating its estimate, and that is what happened. 2nd of Spring’s 3 remotely possible 10k hopes: not happening either. Delta is the -only- shot the season has now.

Haifuri v1 sells 5708/964, total 6,672. 20.5/13.3% underestimated. No event ticket, from what I know! [Edit: Okay there’s a ticket for a public recording of the radio show, so maybe some effect but not a ton?] One of the shows to beat estimates this week. Could end up with a better average than Kabaneri…? Maybe not due to being 6 vols vs 3.

Re:Zero v1 sells 5577/769, total 6,346. 13.7/30.7% overestimated. Event ticket. With rising interest and a likely solid tail it may being one of the better long-tails but it’s not going to crush estimates or anything. It’ll sell roughly around the level expected from estimates.

Stray Dogs v1 sells 2603/3337, total 5,940. 91.1/28.4% underestimated. Event ticket. This was one of the shows with a stronger Animate-Amazon differential so underestimation was expected. v2 has a ticket as well I believe. Can it hold onto a 5k avg?

Bakuon!! v1 sells 2282/544, total 2,826. 36.5/39.1% overestimated. Event ticket. Yikes, I fully expected it to be a bad Amazon bias, and it was. 2.8k even with DVDs just barely making the cut. There goes one of my imports looking at maybe 2.5k avg if it’s lucky…

Flying Witch v1 sells 2,593 BDs, DVDs do not rank. 15.3% overestimated. No event ticket. DVD was #117 for the week.
This is another big disappointment for me, though one I expected based on the daily rankings. DVDs not making the cut really stings though, since it was so close. gfdi extended rankings, we need you! Maybe it’ll make the series ranking that will hit next week and we can calculate from there but that threshold could be too high.
Edit: The series rankings came out and we can calculate that DVDs were 361. So v1 sells 2593/361, total 2,954.

Netoge v1 sells 1849/436, total 2,285. 28.6/34.6% overestimated. Event ticket.

Kuma Miko v1 sells 1,809 BDs, DVDs do not rank. 10.0% overestimated. Event ticket. DVD was #108 for the week.
Unclear if the poorly-received ending affected sales, because overestimation is quite reasonable, but Bokumachi was *heavily* underestimated at the same price point and 1-cour/2-vol release model. I will note that the BD is currently outside the top 1000, which is much lower than most everything else from this release week. Possibly suffering cancellations?

Tanaka-kun v1 sells 886/748, total 1,634. 18.8/31.3% overestimated. Event ticket.

Hundred v1 sells 1104/435, total 1,539. 20.4% under/9.6% overestimated. Event ticket.

Asterisk s2 v1 sells 1,530 BDs, DVDs do not rank. 20.3% underestimated. Event ticket. DVD was #101 for the week.

Anne Happy v1 sells 1,138 BDs, DVDs do not rank. 12.7% overestimated. Event ticket. DVD was #147 for the week.

Shounen Maid v1 sells 691 BDs, DVDs do not rank. 20.3% overestimated. Event ticket. DVD was #141 for the week.

Sakamoto v1 sells 505 BDs, DVDs do not rank. 22.7% overestimated. Event ticket. DVD was #162 for the week.

Conrevo s2 v1 sells 422 as a BD-only release. 47.1% overestimated.

Terraformars s2 v1 sells 407 as a BD-only release. 21.3% overestimated. Event ticket.

Super Lovers v1 adds 404/493, total 3,728.

Outside top 100 in both formats:
Sousei no Onmyouji v1 (BD #124, DVD #134)
Endride v1 (BD >#300, DVD >#300)

Winter update:
Konosuba v4 sells 7144/738, total 7,882. 10,164 average at the moment, one volume to go. A solid wk2 for v4 (did 1.2k last vol) should clinch it even without extendeds.

Gate s2 v4 sells 3683/758, total 4,441.

Bokumachi v2, final volume, sells 3332/711, total 4,087. Extremely good hold, only down 2% from v1’s lifetime sales. Series average: 4,087.

Drrr x2 Ketsu v5 sells 1141/651, total 1,792.

Shirayuki-hime s2 v4 sells 963/616, total 1,578.

Active Raid v3, final volume, sells 1,462 BDs, DVDs do not rank. Series average: 1,875.

Prince of Stride v4 sells 693/570, total 1,263.

Bahamut v4 sells 1,143 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Ansakyou s2 v4 sells 519/582, total 1,101.

Rakugo v5 sells 1,081 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Schwarzesmarken v4 sells 1,047 as BD-only release.

Aokana v4 sells 1,003 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Dimension W v4 sells 714 as BD-only release.

Pandora v2 sells 690 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Haruchika v4 sells 391 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Past seasons:
Osomatsu-san v6 sells 17606/19606, total 37,212. Still no bottom in sight, shedding thousands wk1 per volume and shorter tails each time. Nonetheless, that remains a hell of a lot of discs.
v5 adds 599/694, total 53,156.

G Tekektsu v7 sells 5775/734, total 6,509.

Gintama° v12 sells 2691/2675, total 5,366.

Lupin Pt 4 v7 sells 1540/558, total 2,098.

DiaLovers s2 v4, final volume, sells 1,237 as a DVD-only release. Series average: 1,984. It usually has proportionally strong wk2s so it should get to almost 2.1k.

Noragami s2 v6, final volume, sells 703/456, total 1,159. Series average: 1,821. Down by more than half from 4,380 s1.

Heavy Object v7 sells 1,060 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Haikyuu!! s2 v6 adds 1007/889, total 12,047.

OVAs, Movies, Boxsets etc:
Aria the Origination BD Box sells 12,619. I thought it might top Natural but Natural held a lot better than I expected, so this only being 500 lower wk1 is just fine.

Locodol OVA v2, final volume, sells 2,365, DVDs do not rank. So no extendeds means it loses about 250 DVDs and probably 200 or so wk2+ BDs. At least it’s up on v1 BD but still. ;_; Series average: 2,365. I guess I’m just amazed we got OVAs at all for a series that averaged 2.9k.

Tales of the Abyss BD Box sells 580.

Garupan Movie adds 2206 LE BDs, 566 DVDs, total 210,841.
Edit: The series rankings came out and we can calculate that RE BDs were 326. So 2206/326 BDs, 566 DVDs, total 211,167.
OVA adds 500 BDs, total 64,466.
v1 2015 re-release adds 368, total 12,141.
v2 2015 re-release adds 388, total 11,047.
v3 2015 re-release adds 389, total 10,572.
v4 2015 re-release adds 371, total 9,699.
v6 2015 re-release adds 362, total 9,849. v5 must have just missed the cutoff. Re-release average: 10,465. Series average with re-release: 46,751.

Kind of Prism Movie adds 1534 BDs, 761 DVDs, plus another 688 in the per-series ranking between the two REs, total 24,657.

  1. Hahalollawl says:

    I don’t want to sound like a jerk about this, but can we now say that this looks more like a downward trend for disc sales and no longer just individual one off seasons that aren’t attracting buyers? It seems like it’s been weak season after weak season lately…

    I’m not suggesting this is the end of anime, but maybe it’s a sign that the role of disc sales as a revenue stream is likely to decline, and more diverse revenue streams (or leaning more heavily on other streams) would be a good idea. Though I hope this doesn’t mean we see fewer originals. I know not everyone may agree with this but online streaming, to me, is the way to go for prod committees in the future. Also, a bit of a contraction for the overall market may be due.

    On the other hand, next season has shows that I’m quite excited about, so I hope we see an improvement in sales to some degree in the future.

    • AnimePhoenix says:

      To be honest, the only real big hit I can see next season is Love Live! Sunshine. The others? Maybe New Game…? We’ll just have to hope for a good season.

      About streaming, I don’t mind if it goes in that direction but if it changes what kind of anime is made, I don’t know. Like, if this could help more shoujo anime to be made, I’m ALL for it, but somehow I get this nagging feeling that this might really affect the kind of anime made in the long run.

      I don’t know really. It’s still early to think about these things but there has been a downward trend with disc sales now.

      • something says:

        New Game is a super long-shot, given that even Gochiusa is only an 11-12k title and it beats all post-K-ON! slice of life shows by a solid margin. I work on the “5k is amazing” rule for SOL stuff becaus that seems to be the upper limit for most.

      • Hahalollawl says:

        Not particularly a fan of the shounen/shoujo/etc. labels, but i also wouldn’t mind a bit of variety.

        Next season actually has a nice selection though imo. As a guy who isn’t opposed to shoujo, there seem to be quite a few shoujo type shows. Orange is one of the most interesting shows of the season to me. You’ve also got Hatsukoi monster, which if it’s anything like Soresekai could be interesting. Also a few others. Also an Otoge adaptation. B project looks female oriented and it’s even an original.

        Also some interesting seinen in Berserk and Alderamin.

        Would be nice to see some of those do well next season if they’re interesting.

        • AnimePhoenix says:

          Yeah, Summer has a lot of stuff I want to watch but that means so many more anime that I hope don’t fail. I hope B-Project does well.

    • something says:

      It’s difficult to decide what metric to use. Medians and averages are both misleading in their own ways, an affected by their own outlier conditions. Both are very crude ways to analyze data, but I use them because I don’t know anything advanced about statistics and thus don’t know the best ways to mess around with the data (especially how to put it in pretty line charts and such). But here’s some summary seasonal numbers again, using both measures.

      Median and Average by season, measured in percentage and absolute terms against the same season from the year prior (not the season immediately before)
      seasonal shifts, chronologically

      Same as above, but grouped by season instead of chronologically
      seasonal shifts, grouped by season

      A google doc for the raw data, though you can just pull it from the Quick View page and play with it as you want, that’s what I did: link

      The coloring is basic color gradient for deviation from the 50th percentile. Bluer = better, redder = worse. 2009 is n/a on the comparisons because it’s the starting point (mostly just included so we could see 2010’s change).

      Winter 2010 and Winter 2011 are good examples of how median and average can differ a lot. Winter 2010 is the best median of any season here, but in the bottom half by average. Meanwhile Winter 2011 is just slightly above average by median, but far and away the highest by average (Madoka + Infinite Stratos).

      Winter and Spring 2016 are included but they’re very very incomplete data. Also keep in mind we’re in a post-extended ranking world now, so medians for some Winter vols and all Spring vols onward are probably going to be a couple hundred lower than they’d otherwise be, which is a sizable amount.

      Overall, yes, there’s more red and white in the bottom half of the chart, starting from Summer 2013. At a glance, ignoring all caveats about # of shorts, # of shows overall, MSRP, importance of discs vis a vis other revenue streams and all that very important but very complicated stuff:

      2009 was bad
      2010 was very good
      2011 was middle of the road
      2012 was pretty good
      2013 was very good at first then dropped to below average
      2014 was mostly below average
      2015 was fully below average
      2016 is too early to call but if off to a very bad start

      Based mostly on median. And this of course only applies to the kinds of late night shows I track.

      • Hahalollawl says:

        Part of the problem might be when I started to pay significant attention, which was probably around 2012-2013, so it’s seemed like it’s been down, down, down. Ugh. Just sort off the top of your head, how much would the more recent numbers be impacted if long sequels were removed (monogatari).

        • something says:

          I dunno, what would even count besides Monogatari? No many shows get more than two seasons and those that do aren’t moving big enough numbers to move the averages or medians.

          Medians in particular would change very little. Even Monogatari is only ~26k these days which is sizable but not enough to drastically change the numbers. Outliers like Osomatsu have a bigger effect.

          • Hahalollawl says:

            JoJo? Not sure if there’s anything else, but I guess maybe franchises that have had more than 2 seasons?”

            Yeah medians probably wouldn’t be affected too much I guess.

  2. uchiha madara says:

    is re:zero sales great?

      No it’s not great but 6k units usually means its good sales result. I wanted it to be more but this is not bad. Even if it’s an event ticket volume most of the sales are in the BDs and not in DVDs that makes me hopeful that even though it won’t get huge numbers that it will be pretty consistent.

    • Progeusz says:

      No. They’re pretty good though.

      However I’m somewhat dissatisfied, I expected a bit more (based on data) and (non-factually) hoped for much more. It hurts because awful shows like Haifuri or Kabaneri sold better.

      What pains me the most is Flying Witch though, it deserved to be top seller ;_;

      • uchiha madara says:

        i think it’s good Especially the disc released in 24th While kabaneri&haifuri released in 22th
        so they have much time to sell than re:zero
        so i think if it’s released in the same time i think re:zero will sold better
        hope we see it next week

        • Progeusz says:

          Most of anime sales happen on pre-release and first day but yes, second week could even things out. Thanks for giving me hope ;)

    • BlackPoint says:

      Its pretty good at first on amazon stalker it was aroudn 2.5k then it went up to 4k and the last i think it was around 5,5k~6,5k so selling as it did i think it did a quite good job and i believe its gonna be a steady seller and with 2cour if it keeps around 6k sales its really good then and lets not forget the big LN boost that it got.

      • solid snake says:

        give me link of what you’re talking about in amazon

      • final fantasy says:

        What will benefit the production committee from the light novel boost??
        like boku no hero Maybe the biggest reason for having a second season is because he boost the manga sales, but probably was scheduled to have been divided into two cour

        • something says:

          “What will benefit the production committee from the light novel boost??”
          The original novel publisher is usually on the production committee, often #2 behind the disc publisher. They will benefit from any novel boost. Other committee members may benefit if there’s some revenue sharing defined in the contract.

  3. kotaro_sakata says:

    i don’t know too much about sales,if series average 5k is this good? and 4k? 6k?

    • something says:

      The definition of “good” varies from show to show based on many, many factors.

      But 5k is above average. That doesn’t mean it’s always good for every show to sell 5k. If, say… the next season of Shingeki sells 5k that would be INCREDIBLY BAD. But for plenty of average profile shows, 5k would be perfectly decent, though not amazing.

      • Shazam says:

        But for ecchi harem anime these DVD BD have to be the main source.I mean 18+ will not buy action figures or those other things.So ecchi harem are in worst condition now.

        • something says:

          “I mean 18+ will not buy action figures or those other things.”

          I have some news for you about the core demographic of these things, lol…

            Please share the news.

            • AnimePhoenix says:

              Those people ARE the ones who buy the action figures, chibi figures, dakimakura, oppai and butt mouse pads and the like lol.

            • Progeusz says:

              I might not be a good example due to my limited income but I’d rather spend money on Momo, Mikan, Yami, Lala or Yui figures than a BD volume of TLR.
              I semi-regularly browse one buying community and about half of figures they buy comes from 18+ or at least ecchi source materials.

              If you meant that adults won’t be buying the figs then you’re awfully wrong. They’re targeted primarily at adults (just like BDs, perhaps even more so). Teenagers wouldn’t be able to afford them in the first place with costs starting around 3k for nendos and 9k+ yen for 1/8-1/7 scale, usually around 12k. There is stuff like this too: http://www.amiami.com/top/detail/detail?gcode=FIGURE-021254&page=top (ecchi)

    i know the big shonen didn’t sell good,but i’m see gintama has selling good,nice(:
    Kuma Miko looks sales not good /:

  5. MUGI says:

    Man, I figured there would be a drop, but I can’t say I was expecting JoJo p4 to start off *that* low. Would you say around a 6-7k average total for its run is a close guess for now?

    Also, pretty expected, but ouch for Flying Witch. Did this show at least help pull in manga sales or help *anywhere* outside of these tracked discs?

    • something says:

      The OP sold well but that’s small comfort. Other stuff we just don’t know about. I haven’t checked the manga rankings but I assume thresholds are way too high to have any idea how it’s increased.

      • solid snake says:

        how much cost the op ?

        • something says:

          Pretty standard. ¥1,500 for the LE, ¥1,200 for the RE. Oricon does not differentiate between LE and RE when reporting CD sales. The first week physical CD sales were 17,636.

          • solid snake says:

            what about the tax sales?
            and what the different between LE and RE?
            and the studio will Benefit from the profits of CD?

            • something says:

              Those prices are MSRP, without tax. It’s best not to add tax because it’s not like that money is going to the music publisher or artist.

              I think the LE just comes with a DVD with some music videos or whatever. That’s usually the difference between CD LEs and REs, at least for anisong or anime tie-ins.

              The music publisher gets the money from the CD. Other committee members may get some small cut of it, but that’s depends on how the contracts were written. As far as I know JC Staff was not on the production committee so they wouldn’t get any money from CD sales (or anything else sales, they just get what they were paid to animate the series).

    Remember when Macross Frontier outsold Gundam 00? (Both seasons, not overall)
    I think Macross will show Gundumb that they’re king of mecha now (Delta > Tekkeshit)

    Because Macross can live up the franchise when Gundam is still dying since they making abominations like AGE and G-Wrecko (Except Unicorn))

    • something says:

      Er, Delta might not do all that much better than G Tekketsu, at the current pace. It will need a big event ticket boost to do more than maybe 2k better.

      And if I were a businessman and had to be in charge of one of the two franchises, I’d pick Gundam in a heartbeat. There’s just so much more Gundam -stuff- and it makes way more money overall (there’s much more to a franchise than anime BDs) than Macross possibly could. Especially since there’s only been two Macross series in the last 8 years. They’re just not all that comparable as franchises, they operate on different scales. I don’t even see them as being in direct competition. They just have different goals.

      • Anonymous says:

        Well if you don’t know, Gundam sales and TV ratings are dropped since AGE.

        • ChocoBar9 says:

          And Macross hasn’t made a dent in the ratings since 7. What exactly is your point? Gundam had a growth in franchise revenue last year and despite the opposition G’Reco ranked among the best selling releases last year alongside Gundam the Origin. Don’t really thing Bandai has anything to worry especially with what they have lined up this year and the fact that they own both franchises.

    • ChocoBar9 says:

      Then Unicorn outsold virtually everything Frontier related?

      Live up to what exactly? That the franchise hasn’t done anything exciting and new in years? That Delta is looking to underperformed coming after Frontier? That’s its not getting where near the same noterity as Frontier or hell even IBO? Not really much to be gloating about really and G-Reco was much more interesting to watch than Zero, Frontier and Delta.

      • Anonymous says:

        At least Macross delta entertaining than shit like G-WRECKO which were total mess, from beginning to the end.

    flying witch :”(
    If anime failure will affect on the studio or the production committee?

    • AnimePhoenix says:

      Just putting this here, but Flying Witch is actually doing better than a whole lot of shows this season. Like, look at all those unranked series. I mean, I know it’s small comfort, but….try to look at it that way. It makes things less painful.

    • Flying Witch’s committee is as follows:

      Nippon Television (Tokyo TV station who had a producer credited for “bringing everyone together”)
      VAP (NTV’s subsidiary that produces video/music for them)
      NTV music (NTV’s other subsidiary that produces music for their shows (like the Lupin the 3rd theme))
      Kodansha (manga publisher)
      RAB Aomori broadcasting (local TV station in the NTV system of stations)

      In general, it’s something made because NTV’s producers wanted it made as a TV show. While the raw numbers look bad, it’s honestly not as bad as other NTV shows. It actually performs better than Chihayafuru (and on a better slot too), so there’s not any reason not to think it wouldn’t get a sequel if the producers at NTV wanted it to. Streaming numbers (which we don’t have) may help too.

      • hero_511 says:

        ok,i have question
        If anime failure will affect on the studio or the production committee?
        I’m talking in general

        • something says:

          If the anime fails -in every way-, then it’s bad for everyone on the committee. I’m talking low disc sales, low music sales, little to no source material boost, low TV and domestic/int’l steaming revenue, low mechandise sales, and so on.

          It’s not great for the studio if shows do poorly (hits can raise your reputation and get you more work – in theory) but unless they invested money, it might not matter directly to them. JC Staff, for example, isn’t on the Flying Witch committee.

          But like umx noted, I wouldn’t call Flying Witch a “failure”. I simply hoped it would do better than “average-ish” because I like it so much, but you can do a lot worse than this.

          • hero_511 says:

            if the studio wasn’t in the committee it’s not matter to them,But it will affect their reputation?

        • The production committee setup is designed to reduce the amount of risk as much as possible between companies. It’s really hard for a show to be a disaster for all involved due to how things are created. Generally the companies putting in the most (like video publishers) have enough shows that they’re paying for to balance out if one under-performs.

          Studios are different. It’s all about connections and what you want to create. If a producer wants to make a certain show, they’ll talk to the people they know to get it done and it’s a studio’s job to maintain those connections for work. The same is true for subcontracting studios who assist on various episodes of a show. The more you have, the more work you can possibly do, and the more money you can bring in. One show isn’t going to damage a studio as there’s many possible reasons why shows may under-perform. The level of trust needed for a producer to contact a studio to make something isn’t that flimsy.

          • Hahalollawl says:

            I’m curious as to what the incentive is for a studio to do good work. It’s kinda hard to know how much responsibility for the success or (especially) failure of a show should be placed on them. You’d think if a show a studio animated does really well, at least that would be good for them, but how much blame do they get for failure?

            Or is there some other way they are judged? Can/do production committees judge the “quality” of a studios work?

            Or as long as you have someone with connections at the studio, is the studio basically set financially? But then is there really very little incentive to do quality work? Hmmm…

            • something says:

              Quality does not matter in an “objective” sense. What matters is whether the individuals hiring you are satisfied with your contribution to the project. And even if the project is in the aggregate a failure, that doesn’t mean they’ll blame the studio unless they have a reason to (like if there are excessive delays the studio can only blame on itself and not external factors).

              It’s not just connections for connections’ sake. It’s also about trust. Connections form for a reason. It’s because the investors trust you can hold up your part of the bargain – whatever that may entail for any given project.

            • “good work” means finishing the project in a timely manner to ensure the investors get a show that can be broadcast and distributed via digital and physical media. Nothing more, nothing less. It all boils down to trust. Investors trust that a studio will give them a product that they can sell. Studios don’t want to betray that trust, so they work what they can within the time constraints (subcontracting out as much as possible to meet those restraints).

              Anime can “fail” in different ways not relating to the actual animation quality. Some may not be engaged with the story, it may be a distribution problem (on a couple of channels with little streaming access), there could be little hype coming from an unknown source material, advertising may be poor, etc. Committees know this, and that’s why you don’t see them blame a studio for something that they couldn’t control themselves. (Not to mention “failing” is a very broad term considering the many revenue sources for shows)

              As long as you have a suitable reputation for turning in things on-time with decent quality, you’ll always have work. Even subcontracting studios that you have to search in the ending credits will get work as productions need things done quickly (see WIT’s production desk as people who struggle to finish anything on time). It’s all about getting it done and that’s all that matters.

    Updated with the full ranking. Such a busy week.

    anyone know how much the Profits of re:zero vol.1?

    • something says:

      The revenue is ¥43,650,000 based on tax-excluded MSRP (5,577 BDs * ¥7,000) + (769 DVDs * ¥6,000).

      There’s no way to know what the profits are, though, because we don’t know the video publisher’s investment costs. And you wouldn’t measure that against just vol. 1 anyway, it’d be against the whole release.

      And Oricon reports are estimates, they don’t capture all sales. Actual sales are always higher than what Oricon reports, though by how much is unknown, and can vary a lot.

      • gears_of_war says:

        is ¥43,650,000 good for RE:zero?

        • something says:

          It is solidly above average for anime as a whole, and should be adequate to make the series’ investors happy given the project is also successful in other areas.

    publisher disc like”Aniplex” also published music cd?

      Video publisher and music publisher are usually different. However since Aniplex is part of Sony, I imagine they (or another Sony division) often do handle music in their series.
