Spring update:
Granblue v1 sells 25763/16111, total 41,874. 28.3%/38.4% overestimated. While this is slightly heavier overestimation than I initially expected, I’m still not really surprised, especially after realizing so much of its point estimate came from DVD (it was not going to sell 25k DVDs). The whole time it was solicited, its Amazon ranking just seemed out of whack with its ranking at other shops, which given Stalker’s estimates are only based on Amazon, is a recipe for overestimation. Nonetheless, a monster of an opening and it’ll be the best-seller of the season by a mile. Now we sit back and see how v2+ will do.

Winter update:
Youjo Senki v1 sells 5846/834, total 6,680. 21.0% under/37.1% overestimated. So here we can see the same pattern as Gabdro. High price penalty results in a decently underestimated BD but no penalty on DVD leaves it heavily overestimated. It’s not as underestimated as Gabdro was though. Early in the season this looked like a 10k competitor, but part of that is the lack of a high price penalty at first. But it started losing steam after a few episodes and performing more like what we see here. Still just about a lock for #2 of the season.

Gintama. v1 sells 2466/2459, total 4,925. 18.6%/31.5% overestimated.

Rewrite s2 v1 sells 1,284 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Konosuba s2 v2 sells 6839/784, total 7,623. Interesting, now increasing over s1, or even averaging 10k, looks far, far less likely. s1v2 started at 9.3k. I guess the improved game bonus in v1 this time around was just a bigger draw but the other volumes won’t be up to s1 levels. Unless there’s a big wk2, we’re looking at zero 10ks for Winter.

Gabdro v2 sells 2974/438, total 3,412. Very surprised this increased slightly on v1wk1. When I realized this volume had an event ticket too I thought that would temper the huge drop I expected (v1 had event ticket, artbox, and OVA) but I still thought the drop would be significant. So glad to be wrong.

Marginal#4 v2 sells 1554/903, total 2,457. Fairly hefty drop but not unexpected.

Fuuka v2 sells 1319/424, total 1,743.

Demi-chan v2 sells 1,461 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Super Lovers s2 v2 sells 640/700, total 1,340.

Masamune-kun v2 sells 879 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Urara v2 sells 798 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Schoolgirl Strikers v2 sells 617 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Kuzu no Honkai v2 sells 511 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

ACCA v1 adds 464/306, total 4,442.

Kobayashi-san v2 adds 452 BDs, total 3,992.

Past seasons:
Koro-sensei Q v1 sells 230. 60.4% overestimated. DVD-only release.

YOI v5 sells 32901/12770, total 45,671. Still excellent consistency, only about 600 units below v4wk1.
v4 adds 584/308, total 57,467.

Jojo pt4 v11 sells 5108/1179, total 6,287. Still two volumes to go, and looking like it’ll dip below 8k average.

Natsume s5 v5, final volume, sells 3063/1769, total 4,832. Series average: 5,321. This is the first large drop for the franchise: 10.9 → 10.4 → 10.5 → 9.4 → 5.3. Still, getting 5 (with a 6th running now) seasons is incredible.

Brave Witches v3 sells 4201/439, total 4,640.

Stray Dogs s2 v5 sells 1452/1434, total 2,886.

3-gatsu v2 sells 1924/605, total 2,529. Slight increase on v1wk1.

Working s4 v6 sells 1481/428, total 1,909.

Izetta v5 sells 1,891. BD-only release.

lostorage v5 sells 644/257, total 901.

Takkyuu Musume v5 sells 741 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Girlish Number v5 sells 539 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Tourabu Hanamaru v4 adds 594/600, total 13,927. Slightly over v4. If v6 does the same, it’ll end at slightly over 16k.

G Tekketsu v4 adds 717 BDs, total 5,431.
v5 adds 697 BDs, total 5,355.

OVAs, Movies, Boxsets etc:
Gun x Sword BD Box sells 4,818. Pretty darn impressive for a series that averaged 3.5k initially and is 12 years old.

Trinity Seven Movie sells 2356/515, total 2,871.

Oreimo s2 BD Box sells 1,888. Hefty drop from s1’s 5.2k BD box (6.5k total). But s2 was a hefty drop from s1 originally too.

Pani Poni BD Box sells 1,443. Modest, but it had already done 3.1k in DVD boxes in the past.

Neptune BD Box sells 1,121.

Witchblade BD Box sells 475.

Teekyuu Season 1-8 BD Box sells 445.

  1. NukaCola says:

    Granblue seems like may have some inconsistent numbers based on how people view some of the contents, still think the class one and swim outfit one will sell more than any that come with just a 10 draw ticket. I guess people really liked Dark Kat though, and perhaps AMZNs ranking issue was a bit on western folks ordering (DVDs too).

    Oh well after many seasons finally a show I love is potentially a top seller (last was utapri).

    Hopefully Re:Creators can join Granblue as a top selling, its just so good.

  2. Zhou says:

    What a nice surprise to see the GUNxSWORD BD-box sell so well. Maybe a significant amount of Code Geass fans decided to check out the first Goro Taniguchi/Takahiro Kimura collaboration.

  3. JJ says:

    Where is Love Live sunshine? I thought it got event tickets back last week?

    • something says:

      If we see another bump, it’ll be as the second deadline approaches. That period runs from 4/29 to 5/28 (so only 2 days covered here), so we have another three and a half weeks before the deadline. I wouldn’t expect a huge jump just yet. And how much it jumps will depend on how many people didn’t get in, or how many people missed the first deadline but decided to buy later. No way to guess how much it’ll affect sales.

  4. Para says:

    Nice to see Working still plodding along selling a half decent amount. I just recently imported the US versions of the first two seasons but the two-parter third season pricing is stupidly expensive, even more so since the £ took a dive last year against the $.

  5. Yaoi-Senpai says:

    I don’t what to say, just glad to see YOI at the top like always <3

    Yuri on stage is on the top in Amazon, @something will you add the sales on July?

    • Yaoi-Senpai says:

      And do anyone know what’s the avg sales of YOI?

      • something says:

        60,445 at the moment. If v6 holds steady with v5, and v2 has at least an average wk2+ for the series, the average could remain above 60k, putting it ahead of Gundam SEED and quite likely in range of Nisemonogatari (60,719) for #6 since 2000.

        The next step up from that is beyond any plausible scenario (to 66,770 for Osomatsu-san), so #6 is the current best outcome to target for YOI.

    • something says:

      Stage plays usually don’t get included in the 2ch/urisure sales charts so someone will probably have to remind me when it comes out so I can check Youtaiju, like for the Tourabu and Haikyuu plays.

      • Yaoi-Senpai says:

        I will remind you XD

      • Ryussa says:

        how much did Haikyuu stage play sold this week?

        • something says:

          Because stage plays and musicals don’t get included in the “live events” section of the Weekly Top 100 lists by the Biz leaks we get, we can only track them manually through the preliminary Youtaiju lists (which means Top 30 BDs, Top 50 DVDs). Those ranking thresholds are much higher than the Top 100 thresholds, and Haikyuu’s stage play didn’t rank in either this week.

          This did remind me to go check for other stuff though, and I’ve added wk1 numbers for the latest Tourabu (16,124) and Kuroshitsuji (8,700) musicals.

  6. Ayumi says:

    YOI outselling Granblue’s first volume. 0_0

    I totally thought Granblue was going to do 60k considering it was topping Amazon for such a long time.

    • Yaoi-Senpai says:

      Even me XD but the DVD sold more than YOI DVD.

    • something says:

      Yep, that was the problem for and unavoidable weakness in Stalker’s algorithm. It was indeed topping Amazon… but far more so there than than at other major retailers.

  7. Flushme says:

    So can we consider Youjo Senki as a successful start for studio NUT, or do we have to think in a different way, because they have a lot of former Madhouse staff?

    • something says:

      Studio Nut was on the committee, but in third place – and probably a distant third to two Kadokawa divisions: Media Factory and Enterbrain. I’m guessing disc sales aren’t really that relevant to Nut here, though certainly starting out with a success doesn’t hurt. If Kadokawa is pleased with the quality and speed of what they delivered, that’s the kind of thing that matters to Nut because it helps build relationships/connections in the industry. And that’s how most studios get more work, and more work, rather than more disc sales, means more revenue. Most studios work for hire and the way to thrive is to do as much work as possible. It’s a grueling industry like that.

      Some studios are trying to take a bit more control of their productions in recent years, but while that may mean higher reward, it also means higher risk. Most studios barely have the staff to do the whole anime production piece, and managing all the rest would take expertise and time they don’t have.

      Having ex-Madhouse staff wouldn’t affect the equation.

  8. Cyssa says:

    It’s really nice to see YOI still selling good. 60k average looks so possible to me!

  9. lucy says:

    I’m honestly surprised that Granblue outsold YoI in DVDs, and it even had a good margin. Thought it would be the opposite, Granblue > YoI in BD and YoI > Granblue in DVD.
    Hoping that Jojo average will manage to keep itself around 8k ;_;

    also rip winter season sales, here lies the hopes and dreams of at least one best seller

  10. Gatmar says:

    The Lack of 10k sellers is just further prove of how just oversaturated the anime market has become with so many new anime that are coming out and a lack of decrease in sale prices. Add to the fact that animators are on a decrease due to lack of proper payment(My god they have no shame) we are going to see an anime crash of the industry that is on par of the game crash in the 80’s

    So GunxSword finally got the blu ray treatment? maybe (that is a big maybe) funimation might release it on blu ray in thei S.A.V.E line, it is not the best mech series out their but it is a classic for me,

    • something says:

      Lack of 10k sellers is only proof of a decline in physical media and changing spending habits of fans, not necessarily decline in the overall profitability of adapting series to anime. If you make the same or more money through different means, you can still make it work. Extrapolating the overall health of the industry from disc sales is difficult or even dangerous. It is worth questioning what pressures this will put on the traditional “video publisher on top” committee make-up, as I’ve often done, but that’s not exactly the same as saying the market is unsustainable. And we’ve never seen any reason to believe lowering prices would lead to higher profits.

      Your point about stressing the human component of the industry is what I’d focus on more. Even if there’s enough fans out there to support your various mobage or live events or streams or various other revenue streams, you need to not kill the people making your ever-increasing numbers of shows.

      • Gatmar says:

        Yeah you are probably right. we have reached an age where Physical media sales no longer really determines if a series is successful or not anymore. it is mostly viewership ratings that are a real deal now. still i hope the physical media format remains at least as a nice market for us hardcore collectors.

        However i still stand by with the over-saturation of the market of to many anime being released and not enough workforce to meet the demand and the piss poor treatment of Animators and Mangaka by the industry. this will come back to bite them hard at the rate it is going and you can not say it won’t.

        • homu says:

          I hope media sales can still be used as a proxy for the relative popularity of shows within a season. Otherwise we really don’t have any trustworthy metrics to speak off, unless somebody start to track CrunchyRoll rankings and the like.

          • something says:

            CR rankings, like all rankings that don’t come with some kind of number attached to contextualize what a position in the rankings means, are unfortunately not much help in determining relative popularity. The gap between the perennial shounen hits always at the top and seasonal shows even a few spots back could be enormous.

            Disc sales can still be a proxy for relative performance, but the list of caveats will continue to grow longer each passing year.

  11. Yaoi-Senpai says:

    @something When will the full list be out?

  12. something says:

    Updated with the full list.
