Big week for Natsume OVA, and Free finishes off very strongly. NagiAsu keeps on ranking. And that is a craaaaaaazy low DVD threshold this week.

Fall update:
Kill La Kill v2 sells 6731/1113, total 7,844, down about .9k from v1wk1.

Kyoukai v2 sells 2879/889, total 3,768. As expected, hit especially hard on the DVD front where it drops by half from ticket-only buyers leaving. After next week’s BDs, should be looking at about 35-40% event ticket drop.

Kyousougiga sells 906 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Kurobas s2 v1 adds 772/924, total 18,948. Well, that may answer that question – this is nothing like the huge wk2s from season one. And with that question answered we can almost certainly squash any expectations that it can be the one series to average 20k in Fall.

Infinite Stratos 2 v3 adds 301 DVDs, total 14,158.

Kill La Kills v1 adds 401 BDs, total 10,428 in wk5.

LitBus v1 adds 685 BDs, total 10,386. Just 1.3k below s1v1’s total, should add another 300 or so and get within about 1k.

Non Non v2 adds 545 BDs, total 8,412.

Strike the Blood v1 adds 431 BDs, total 6,014.

Machine Doll v2 adds 254 BDs, total 4,274.

Log Horizon v2 adds 277 BDs, total 3,879.

NagiAsu v1 adds 288 BDs, total 3,678 in wk8.
v2 adds 572 BDs, total 3,964 in wk2.

White Album 2 v2 adds 282 BDs, total 3,378.

Summer update:
Free! v6, final volume, sells 14477/8158, total 22,635. This is a good 1k higher than v4-5 wk1s, so even if it’s more front loaded it should easily get past 24k and be on par with them. Assuming so, the final average will end around 28.7k but so far it’s 28,381.
v5 adds 270 BDs, total 25,245 in wk5, meaning it added 214in wk4. Puts it over 25k!

Symphogear G v5 sells 6071/639, total 6,710. Such consistent wk1s after the event ticket, all between 6.6k and 6.9k.

Watamote sells 941 BDs, DVDs do not rank.

Kaminai sells 494 BDs, DVDs do not rank. Series average: 531.

Monogatari v4 adds 731 BDs, total 41,433.

HS DxD v5 adds 398 BDs, total 8,894.

Prisma Illya v5 adds 620 BDs, total 6,443. Series average: 6,779.

Kinmosa v5 adds 390 DVDs, total 5,596.

BroCon v6 adds 342 DVDs, total 4,959.

Past seasons:
Aikatsu! v9, final volume, sells 1,712. This DVD-only release, the last 2012 series to conclude, has a final average of 2,152.

Shingeki v7 adds 255 BDs, total 37,323.

Railgun S v7 adds 757 BDs, total 15,271.

OreImo. v8 adds 295 BDs, total 14,483. Series average: 15,766.

OVAs, Movies, Boxsets etc:
Natsume Yuujin-chou OVA sells 11871/8177, total 20,048. The best selling previous volume was the first volume of the first season at 13,652, so this this

Madoka Movies 1-2 add 253 LE BDs, total 107,445 in wk29.

Tiger&Bunny DVD Box adds 360, total 3,449.

    That’s some crazy stable sales for Arpeggio

    • Anonymous 2 says:

      Speaking of Arpeggio, there’s never been any comments on it in the updates section… what’s up with that?

      • something says:

        Full 3DCG is an entirely different artistic medium from anime and as such I find it strange to even include shows like it on this website to begin with, but I do so for the convenience of people who feel differently. I do not have to go out of my way to comment on it or any other full 3DCG television series however, any more than I would for live action or non-Japanese animation, and have no plans to going forward either.

        • Anonymous says:

          Well most(seems all sites?) sites do count Arpeggio as anime and treat it normal like others

          Maybe because more full 3D animation is coming,like Knights of Sidonia

          • something says:

            I know they do, that’s why I make an exception I’d otherwise not. As I already include it in every applicable ranking, someone interested it its sales can determine them every bit as well. The additional commentary below the rankings has always been selective – notice no comment even on some anime releases, like most but not all movies or long-running kids’ shows.

            The extent to which 3DCG is gradually replacing anime isn’t really relevant to this site in the short term. It just means that over the long term, I won’t have enough anime to watch to make tracking sales or staying in the hobby worth my time, and thus this site won’t last forever. But what site does? I’m confident there will be more than enough alternative sources for people to turn to after I take up other hobbies. In any case, even under the worst scenario that’s a couple years off. Too distant to worry about right now.

  2. Progeusz says:

    Woohoo! >10k first week for Arpeggio, the 10k average should be a safe bet now.
    7,844 for Kill la Kill, 11% drop, pretty nice consistency.
    Symphogear basically the same as v4 – 6,071/639 vs 6,090/624 – only four units drop. Less than 0,1%. Now that’s some consistency. Can’t wait for S3.
    3,768 for KnK, unfortunately it looks like it will average above 4k. Tamako was much better :[
    No matter how many times I see the sales of Kyousou Giga, even considering the weak finale, they’re disheartening. Oh well, we can’t have everything going our way.

  3. AnimePhoenix says:

    Hmm, KuroBasu didn’t have the big second week I was expecting it to have. That’s a bit sad. Probably won’t add much on BD either.

    Free! Volume 6 having such a good start makes me glad.

  4. hpulley says:

    Symphogear G v5 sales make me very happy. The OVA wasn’t what I was expecting so now I wonder about the last OVA but anyways, that’s not why I buy those discs. The anime and music (OST CD5) are just amazing. Can’t wait for season 3!

  5. NATAPORI says:

    with Vol.6 Free! average sell 28,300 copy,Awesome.It rank top 5 average sell 2013 now next to Attack on Titan,Monogatari SS2,Utari2000% and above Love Live! I’m curious can beat lucky star! next week ?

    • hpulley says:

      After their Saitama Super Dome concerts last weekend, LoveLive! Is ranking in the top 100 again so its average may not be done yet LOL!

      • something says:

        It could get a boost if it ranks again again but it would need to add over 3,000 total discs to bump its average up to the 28.7k mark. That’s pretty steep even for a show (or said show’s events/concert footage at least) with its longevity.

        Although I suppose thresholds are going to be STUPIDLY low next week so it’s as perfectly timed an opportunity as a show could wish for.

        • hpulley says:

          Yeah, the LOL showed while I think we might even see them show up in such a dead week as next week, I doubt they have enough left in stock to make up that much of a difference.

          So far the concert bonus included volumes 2, 4 and 6 are hot. They also include some of the most popular new singles performed live for the first time last weekend.

          I expect the 3rd Anniversary disc will be strong again next week and wonder if we might even see a reappearance of the 2012 First LoveLive disc? Is there stock is the question.

          I’m surprised the Fandisc isn’t ranking. It is a cheap one disc digest of the first season, perfect for fans who just discovered it.

          • something says:

            Whatever Love Live may be, lacking stock does not seem to be it! It’s still incredible to think that it’s distributed by the same Bandai who so spectacularly flubbed Garupan’s and T&B’s distribution.

            • hpulley says:

              LoveLive! volume 5 w/ Nico cover and bonus single CD LE is out of print on Amazon and Neowing, didn’t check elsewhere. There is an RE available but of course it lacks the CD. Expensive used copies for ¥28000 on Amazon.

              • Nico87 says:

                Out of print over at HMV as well along with some other volumes. Need to hurry up and source vols 5-7 from somewhere asap!

                • hpulley says:

                  Probably have to go used on LoveLive! volume five LE now. 6 & 7 are still in new stock but 6 is selling well now so you might want to order it soon.

    • something says:

      Lucky Star is 29,146 which is far too much ground for Free! to make up right now. Assuming it hits 28.7k average next week, it would need to find 2,676 total discs even beyond that to reach the same average.

      I’d say the absolute most optimistic scenario, with mid-year ranking data for v5-6 (would come late June or early July), would be around a 28.9k average.

      Of course a couple hundred discs average is a negligible difference. For all intents and purposes they’re basically tied.

  6. hpulley says:

    Re: full list

    Glad Kabuki v2 is still selling.

    NagiAsu v1 and v2 in the mix! Too bad we didn’t get the DVDs for v1 or it would probably be over 4K.

    Glad that Non Non Biyori still selling.

    Strike the Blood getting 6K including DVDs.

    Happy about Machine Doll and WA2 adding some more on. Every little bit helps the slim season 2 hopes…

    • something says:

      Assuming Non Non v2 adds about 300 more, it did indeed end up following a very Kinmosa-like progression. Slightly less drop than Kinmosa tho. Now to hope v3+ are as consistent for Non Non as they were for Kinmosa.

      • hpulley says:

        NNB bonuses are pretty consistent the rest of the way, 100 Page booklets and character song CDs so I expect similar sales unless they add some special bonus to a later volume. Volume 4 has the second bonus 12 Page manga like volume 1 but I doubt that will drive many additional sales.

  7. peace☺✌ says:

    wow natsume!! can i ask you questions?
    all the Revenue of sales of any anime back to studio or what?
    not just the disc sales
    i mean all the anime revenue

    • something says:

      Most commonly an animation studio is hired by the production committee that funds the anime, and are paid a set fee for their work. They do not necessarily get any of the money the anime makes after that unless they’re part of the production committee, which they often are not (or they’re a small layer in it).

      • peace☺✌ says:

        so the studio takes a smaller percentage of revenue?

        • something says:

          Generally yes, and the percentage may be 0% in a lot of cases. The bulk of their revenue from an adaptation is the up-front fee they get paid.

          • peace☺✌ says:

            you said “in a lot of cases”
            like what?

            and natsume sales good what do you think the reason why did he get this good sales?
            i didn’t expected that!!

            • something says:

              If the studio isn’t on the production committee, it means they didn’t put funds into the show, which means it’s unlikely they’d be getting a cut of revenues. But I don’t like to speak in absolutes because we never know the precise details of each contract, so it’s always a little fuzzy.

              I don’t know why Natsume Yuujin-chou sold so well, but more impressive is how consistently it sold at about the same level. I expect season five to drop a lot because it’s been so long since the last, but nonetheless it’s a very impressive run.

              • peace☺✌ says:

                i hopefully it didn’t drob that much

                is the mangaka who select production committee?
                or it’s the magazine؟
                sorry for the questions, because i don’t know to much about things like this/:

                • Progeusz says:

                  There’s no party which “selects” production committee. It’s agreed upon by all of them. I think in case of manga adaptations it’s usually the magazine who starts the idea (but it might as well be, for example, toy seller, depending on which title we’re talking about) and then contacts sponsors willing to support the show (BD publisher, CD music company, merchandise sellers etc.). They talk with each other until they reach consensus and that’s when production committee is formed. Studio can be chosen later because often they simply get paid to do the job.
                  Keep in mind we don’t really have details about how whole process looks exactly and it can vary wildly between shows because each of them has different goals but this a general idea.

                  Mangaka don’t select the committees (they’re too busy meeting deadlines) but they indeed might have some impact on who is chosen. Most of the time however they leave things in hands of their publisher. Well, after all it’s publishers who hold the rights to those titles.

                • primadog says:

                  Production committee is formed to fund a particular anime, so there’s no “choosing” in the first place. That’s why most anime titled “x” credits “x production committee.” It literally is just a nickname for all the companies that funds for a show.

                  Usually the production committee consist of an assortment of companies, who each have their particular niche in exploiting the anime for profit – so a music company, disk company, manga company, figure company, etc. Typically, there’s a main producer who does all the legwork to rope in these companies together (usually, but not always, working for the original publisher). For example, Atsuhiro Iwakami is the producer behind Bakemonogatari, Madoka, Hidamari Sketch, etc. He doesn’t work for a magazine publisher, but as the star producer for Aniplex, he has the wherewithal to hunt down IPs that he see potential for adaption in. He also have a close working relationship with Shinbo, which is why all the aforementioned shows were animated by Studio SHAFT.

                  Now, mangaka and magazine publisher does have a say on which studio/creative heads they prefer. We saw this in the upcoming March Comes in Like a Lion anime, in which through the insistence of the mangaka Shinbo was set to actually direct a whole anime for the first time in a decade.

                  (Using SHAFT as an example because I’m most familiar with them. You can consider the above as a rough generalization.)
