Fall update:
Utapri s4 v1 sells 28394/14725, total 43,119. Event ticket. 277.1/299.6% underestimated. Definitely below the 54k and 49k of the last two seasons’ v1wk1s, but it should probably get to 50k. And in any case, definitely going to end up below YOI and be #2 of fall. But this number makes a lot more sense than what it would have to be if YOI had really sold the ~35k it was originally reported at!

Tourabu v2 sells 8608/7160, total 15,768. This has an event ticket as well. If it has a decent wk2 it should be about 20% off the v1 event ticket. Then it’s a question of how far v3 drops before we can guess how it averages.
v1 adds 221/260, total 22,484. BDs calculated from per-series ranking.

Occultic v2 sells 454 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

YOI v1 adds 2011/944, total 65,628. That’s 65k reached but with the slow-down 70k definitely seems like a maximum.

Drifters adds 249, total 11,067 as a one-shot BD-only release. Series average: 11,067.

Stray Dogs s2 v1 adds 197 DVDs, total 8,536. And with that it’s actuallt passed s1v1.

Magic-kyun v1 adds 279 BDs, total 4,231 in wk4, meaning it added 160 in wk3.

Summer update:
Nanatai Seisen v1 sells 938/1194, total 2,132. 13.0/32.8% overestimated. Event ticket.

Amaama BD box sells 395, so the v1 total if we count box + v1 single = 1,340. This one is being released in two ways, one boxset or 6 singles. I’m surprised so few people went the box route. Sure it starts later, but it finishes faster and is actually a hell of a lot cheaper… Maybe people simply didn’t know a box version was coming?
v4 single sells 483.

Mononokean v5 sells 461/586, total 1,047.

LL Sunshine v3 adds 365, total 34,007.
v4 adds 1031, total 32,059.

Boueibu s2 v4 adds 212 DVDs, total 4,913. Now up 58.1% on v3, though v3 only ranked once.

Past seasons:

OVAs, Movies, Boxsets etc:
Kizumonogatari II adds 989/105 BDs, 220 DVDs, total 42,211. RE BDs from per-series ranking.

Amagami SS Nanasaki Ai recap disc adds 258, total 1,028.

  1. Yaoi-Senpai says:

    Aww yes, YOI sold 65k copies <3 I'm so glad.
    As expected, Utapri will sell a bit lesser than YOI for its first week.
    And finally, happy to see Hanamaru in this list, 16k is not that bad, it's really good <3
    I'm so happy to see my favorite show selling high.

  2. AnimePhoenix says:

    Yuri!!! on Ice…go baby, go! <3 <3 <3 <3
    Boueibu v4 has strong legs. Hope v5 can do the same!
    Hope Tourabu doesn't drop too much. It was a cute little show.

  3. Tuna says:

    Saw so many on my jpn timeline getting utapri dvd, glad it translated to another big number. With a drop thats not tragic utapri_a remains strong I think and even better in the context of yuri on ice and toukenranbu competition.

    I think people before season overestimated toukenranbu popularity.

    • something says:

      Tourabu’s popularity probably wasn’t overestimated (like 40-50k for the stage play jfc), what was in question was their ability to translate that to disc sales. It looks like the answer is “less successful than the already kinda under-performing Kancolle” considering Tourabu should have a sharper ticket drop. I doubt airing in the same season as YOI and Utapri did it any favors either. But it’s still going to be one of the 5th best selling show of 2016, even if that’s not a particularly high bar to clear.

      I’m really questioning if splitting it into slice of life and action shows was a good move or not. I suppose as long as Hanamaru didn’t burn people out on buying discs for the show, the ufotable adaptation can still reach its full potential. I guess they can have another event lined up by then as well to get a big ticket boost.

      I think the real question is whether it gets a Fate-style one-and-done box release. If it’s a one shot box *and* has a popular event ticket, that could inflate its average pretty heavily.

      • JJ says:

        I just don’t know if Torabus audience really cares about high quality action scenes. After the complete mess Ufo made out of Zestiria to the point where Bamco was running almost a completely different ad campaign to try to get goodwill back from that audience. (They cut out almost all the Michele/Sorey scenes which made the game big with fujos in the first place to add more OC Alisha scenes

        • JJ says:

          Which wasn’t recieved very well) Its hard enough with 50 different sword husbandos to juggle everything but I just don’t think Ufos a good fit for its audience which isnt that invested in animation or fight scenes and cares a lot more about character interaction and seeing their favorite swords with each other.

          • musouka says:

            It really depends on how ufo handles it, IMO. I also wouldn’t characterize the female audience as unappreciative of good animation or fight scenes–one only needs to look at Kekkai Sensen for proof of that–just that grabbing their attention depends on factors IN ADDITION TO animation and fight scenes. (I’d categorize it as a specific sense of mood and place, myself)

            Either way, Hanamaru isn’t a failure by any stretch of the imagination, but I must confess I’m very interested to see how it will stack up to ufo’s version.

            We live in interesting times in general as far as the women’s market is concerned. This season at least shows that the market can carry several female-oriented shows at a time successfully.

            • JJ says:

              Yeah I didn’t mean to say it like women can’t appreciate good fight scenes or animation, but more that it isn’t huge draw. More of a frosting on a cake. People (at least in the places I was) weren’t disappointed with Hanamaru because of a lack of fight scenes or less than amazing animation but it was more of a cohesion/pacing issue. Just when I hear people talk about how Ufo can be more successful because they’ll have better animation and put in more and flashier fight scenes, I think it’s a little missing the point. Ufo will have to do more than that to be more successful than Hanamaru in my opinion. And Ufo has really misunderstood the female audience before so I don’t have a ton of confidence they’ll get it right this time. If they focus too much on flashy fights instead of characters and characters interactions, I don’t see it being more successful than Hanamaru. Who knows though.

              • something says:

                It’s not so much the action I assume would sell UFO’s version, but it just being less slice-of-lifey and more dramatic. More hot boys being angsty and suggestively pointing swords at each other while delivering grandiose lines about the futility of life and joy of battle, that sort of thing. But I’m just blindly assuming that Tourabu is popular with something like the Shinsengumi/Reki-jo crowd. Like, my mental model for it is Hakuoki hopped up on mobage steroids and minus the otomege aspect. And that may be totally incorrect! I really know nothing about it except it’s a super popular mobage with lots boys who are also swords.

                • musouka says:

                  Yep, got it in one.

                  I have relatively little interest in anthropomorphic swords, but when I’ve dipped my toes into looking at doujinshi for my sword boyfriendo and his boyfriendo, there’s very little humor and gag stuff compared to the serious business drama stuff. (And he’s one of the goofier characters)

              • tpak24 says:

                Hmm, as a woman, I can say fight scenes are a HUGE draw for me. I frequently look up “best anime fight scenes” and have watched many shows because they have legendary fight sequences. I can’t say that’s the case for all female anime fans, and it’s probably not, but it is for some. That said, I found Zerestia boring because I couldn’t care less about any of the characters. That said, what “something” posted below about hot guys pointing swords suggestively at each other and getting angsty, as long as it’s not too angsty or too angsty for the situation, that is on point for me at least.

                • JJ says:

                  I was just commenting what I’ve noticed in the fan spaces that I stay in which aren’t neccessarily indicative of everyone obviously, but generalizing is always trouble and I’m sure there are a lot of women like you! I like action myself, but I wouldn’t watch a show just for that.

              • musouka says:

                Dryness is definitely a factor. Ufo stuff can be a little bit plodding and humorless, which could be a liability when aiming at women. On the other hand, as I said below, it seems like fans gravitate towards more serious depictions, which could be in their favor.

                • JJ says:

                  Yeah I understand the love of dramatic angst. I’m probably just overly skeptical because I was looking forward to Zestiria and am still kinda bitter about it and Ufos approach to the female fanbase in general. (Like not even mentioning there was a male side to the drama CDs for weeks until bamco/marketing went into full damage control mode and started plastering Michele/Sorey everywhere after Ufo practically cut all their game scenes in favor of waifu stuff but I don’t know how much of that is Ufo and how much is something else.)

  4. Carol B says:

    *Breaks the door*
    So, Touken Ranbu fan here!
    I will talk here about the Touken Ranbu fandom ONLY
    (So, i’m NOT talking about all the girls who like anime/games, and DEFINITELY i am NOT saying that girls don’t like fight scenes. I known hundred of them that love it, keep your steriotypes down)

    Let’s be clear:
    JJ is TOTALLY right!
    Personally, I and all Touken Ranbu fans (girls and boys) that i known didn’t care a d**n about lack of action scenes of our swords boys. We are hoping for more historical details about their former owners and interaction between the others swords. I personally wanted more of Kotetsu brothers drama just like hanamaru did with Toushirou and Samonji brothers.

    The 3 main things that people like in touranbu
    1. Collect the characters
    2. A fun way to learn Japanese History (actives curiosity to search and know about the REAL history behind the owners)
    3. The biggest one: Infinity of Shipping material. (there’s bishie, there’s bara, ahh! remember the steriotypes? My best friend is a gay fudanshi and also touranbu fan. He prefers the bishie swords, and i, a woman, prefer the bara guys. A lot different of common sense about gay and woman preferences towards anime/manga xD)

    Something (thank you for this AMAZING website!) i guess you misunderstood when you think that fight scenes are more expected by its fanbase.
    Right now i’m very concerned about what Ufo will do in its version. Is there any female-aimed show that they did in the past?

    And thank you again JJ, for explain why Zestiria is so popular among our fujoshi/fudanshi friends. I heard for years “caro, you should play Zestiria, you will fall in love with Mikleo/Sorey” and when i watched the
    ufo version i got punched in the eye: wtf all these cute girl warriors desperate for a war messiah? Where’s the pairing? Finally I understand what happened hahahah

    • something says:

      “Something (thank you for this AMAZING website!) i guess you misunderstood when you think that fight scenes are more expected by its fanbase.”
      I clarified in another answer that it’s not the action scenes per se that I assumed might help a more serious version, but rather ratcheting up some of the drama. So more Shinsengumi/reki-jo fandom than those into pure action spectacle. And yeah maybe that’s where the ufotable version might fall flat.

      • Carol B says:

        Did ufotable ever made an female show? I want to stay calm and not worry too much about it. xD

        It’s still too early to say anything about it. I just wanna see:
        * The newcomer swords (released in after the announcement of anime versions)
        * An equally ratio bishounen – bara sword main characters
        * Much, and much interation between the not only ‘family’ swords but with different origin/times too.
        * Keep Japanese history hints in every episode.

        • something says:

          Uh…. Weiß Kreuz Glühen in 2002? lol Not that that really counts, it was ages ago and they may as well be a different company now.

          The director of the ufo Tourabu is a ufotable guy so he’s only worked on ufotable shows, besides doing key animation on a few other things. Tourabu seems to be his first lead director gig, whereas before he just did individual episode direction on some other ufotable shows. Doesn’t seem to have any experience in specifically women-targeted shows but since it’s his first outing in the lead spot that’s not necessarily telling.

          I don’t see who the writer is yet but I assume it’s another in-house ufotable person maybe?

          • Myka says:

            Wow, Weiß Kreuz. Haven’t heard that in a while. I remember the character design fiasco that happened back then.

  5. Mikumo says:

    Hello! Anybody here knows if there’ll be more event tickets bundled with Love Live Sunshine’s upcoming DVD/BDs?
    And on the same subject, whether there’ll also be more DVD/BD event tickets for Macross Delta and B-Project? I know Walkure will be releasing a new album next week but don’t think this one comes with a ticket.

    • something says:

      Sunshine does in vol 5, 6, and 7 (yeesh I thought it was “just” v6-7). They’re going all in on event tickets, considering only 2 of 7 volumes (v3-4) don’t have any kind of ticket. The v5-7 tickets aren’t for concerts though, as far as I know. So they won’t be as big as v1-2. But I don’t know what the boost will be. From 35k to 40k? or more like 50k? In the end, it’s just harder and harder to compare disc sales meaningfully these days. It basically boils down to being a 35-40k show that will average maybe 55k+ due to event tickets.

      Delta had tickets in 1, 3, and 4 but I don’t see anything listed for the volumes after that. v9 comes with an on-disc extra covering six songs from Walkure 1st Live but no actual tickets for anything new. Because they split the ticket boost with some of the albums, and because it’s 9 volumes total, the event ticket boost is only increasing the average for this show by, I dunno, maybe 2k above what it’d otherwise be (probably from about 8k to a bit under 10k).

      B-Project was just v1-2. I don’t see anything listed in later volumes.

      • hpulley says:

        There are still NO DETAILS about the event in LLSS v5 so it seems like it isn’t helping the sales of that one. Probably means it’s a talk/fanmeeting event rather than even a mini-live. A week to release and still no details is really odd… if they do reveal the details now then I wonder if it’ll have stock issues if it suddenly becomes popular. Without details it seems buyers are really waiting in the wings. Are they three separate events or three chances at the same event? Nobody knows. At this point I expect v5’s sales won’t be much different from v4’s sales.

        Macross Delta’s drop is disappointing. The albums sold very well but the split tickets didn’t do the Blurays much good. Walkure’s third album doesn’t have a ticket listed but they added the tickets very late last time so I’m never sure until I open my copy and see what’s inside. I hope the third album sells well at least. At this point I just hope the anime sold enough for a movie to be made; probably was enough, especially with all the anime movies coming out today, but the franchise has dropped a lot since the last installment so I’m not certain.

        • Mikumo says:

          I agree with this comment (https://www.someanithing.com/6198/comment-page-1#comment-82346) I saw a few weeks ago, and based on that there shouldn’t be any doubt that Delta’s a success. Even if you lowball that 21k estimate to say about 18k, by assuming sales of the albums that would’ve occurred even without its event ticket, we’re still looking at a very respectable number and this is for a 9-volume release.
          We’re comparing anime from different eras of course. But chances are Macross Frontier was an outlier, and Delta’s probably doing about as well as SDF Macross and certainly wayyyyyyy better than Macross 7.

          • something says:

            It’d be interesting to know how the revenue is being split. The CDs are from FlyingDog and the BDs are from Bandai Visual. I have to assume the decision to put split the event ticket across CDs and BDs, which was guaranteed to lower BD sales, had to involve some revenue sharing agreement.

      • Gintoki_KotAro says:

        Does all re:zero volumes have event tickets?

        • something says:

          v1-2 did. They had an extremely small effect on sales. It’s per-volume sales so far are:
          11,533 – ticket
          10,498 – ticket

          And honestly that’d be considered consistent performance even without event tickets. Virtually no drop, or looking at it another way, virtually no boost.

  6. Yaoi-Senpai says:

    So guys/girls what do you expect the sales of YOI vol.2?

    • ayumi says:

      My predictions for Vol.1 was not bad.

      I predicted it will sell 58k (first week). It ended up selling 51k first week.
      I predicted second week to sell 10k. It ended up selling 12k.
      I predicted third week to sell 3k. It sold 3k.

      I predict YOI vol. 2 to sell:
      FIRST WEEK: 46,000 copies
