    Arpeggio, Symphogear and Free as stable and consistent as always.

  2. AnimePhoenix says:

    Free!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I really do hope that it hits 29k average in the mid year ranking.

    • layercake says:

      I just hope any male-oriented series done by KyoAni doesn’t suffer in the future. I hope they get another hit series for the guys.

      • something says:

        They’ll do well if people like them, just like any show from any other studio. Free has nothing to do with it.

      • musouka says:

        I’d be more concerned about the quality of male-oriented shows, rather than the popularity, personally.

        • something says:

          Amagi Brilliant Park is something I’d normally have low-ish expectations for, but the idea of another Takemoto/Gatou collaboration is too good to be pessimistic about. Whether it’ll sell, well, no idea. It’s not like it’s a super popular novel yet so presumably Kadokawa is looking for another Hyouka. Even a third of Hyouka’s disc sales would be fine if the Amagi novels jump even half as much as the Kotenbu series did, I’d imagine.

          • musouka says:

            I picked up the series out of curiosity when I heard KyoAni was going to animate it. (And because I love FMP) Since they were an incredibly easy read, I finished all three released volumes. Without spoilers, there are definite strengths and weaknesses to the series. The biggest problem, I think, is that its strengths aren’t necessarily KyoAni’s strengths, and its main weakness that could impact KyoAni’s adaptation is a lack a good stopping place to cap an arc.

            The book that felt most like something KyoAni would be good at adapting was book three, since there was an emphasis on school comedy and a female character of a type that KyoAni excells at. But given how much time it takes to produce a series, and the fact that book three hit last month, it’s hard for me to imagine that they had that material to work with…

            Either way, I think I’m looking forward to it because it takes KyoAni out of their comfort zone, but not in the way that people were claiming Kyoukai no Kanata would.

        • Anonymous2 says:

          It’s not like Free was a particularly good-looking show with high production values like Kyokai, so I wouldn’t worry about that.
          I would even go so far and say it’s one of KyoAni’s visually worst works, but maybe that’s just me.

          • musouka says:

            Yeah, Free! was their most uneven work by far. I would have been horribly disappointed, but then I remember what A1 did to Togainu no Chi and remind myself that even lower production KyoAni is miles and miles above what female fans normally get from other studios.

            • something says:

              Free! looked damn good when it really needed to, and was solid and consistent otherwise. I’d say production values were overall very good. Free is probably a “better” show than Chuunibyou in terms of pacing and tighter storytelling, but Chuunibyou is just that much more up my alley (Sanae ♥) so I enjoyed it slightly more, though both are fantastic.

              After a modest gap I’d place Tamako in third, which did what it wanted to do extremely well but was a little more meandering (and yes I’m forever bitter over the snubbing of Midori). After a significantly larger gap Kyoukai would take up the rear. I didn’t dislike what I saw, but it was hands down the weakest series I’ve seen of theirs and I never did get around to watching the second half. I liked quite a lot about it, but the protagonist was the first male lead in a KyoAni show that I’ve ever disliked. He was so painfully light novel. I probably would have finished the show (and liked it but not loved it) but my motivation for anime absolutely cratered in Fall 2013 and I ended up dropping everything – even Refrain after importing LitBus s1! – except for Non Non, Yozakura and Log Horizon.

              At this point it looks unlikely we’ll see a new franchise from KyoAni before Winter 2015 so it’ll be a long time before we can see how that pans out. Tamako Love Story premiers in April, Free! season 2 will presumably be summer if they can manage that, and I guess that puts Amagi (not their own IP anyway, a first since Hyouka) in Fall. I just hope it’s not that Phantom World novel they recently announced because another light novel magic/fantasy action story with a male protagonist is the absolute last thing I want from any studio right now.

              • musouka says:

                Chu2 is fine for what it is. I watched some of the first season. It wasn’t really my thing, but there wasn’t anything majorly offensively wrong with it. (I mean, I could write about how sort of uncomfortably male-centric its perspective on chuunibyou and how the girls affected by it were, but that’s something that happens in nearly all series aimed at guys with a lot of women in the cast, and Chu2 is actually less offensive than most, really.) It’s too bad it doesn’t look like the fans really wanted more of it, judging by presale numbers, but I guess we can’t judge until it actually goes on sale!

                As far as how Free looked goes, yes, it pulled out all the stops when it needed to, but I generally expect consistently high quality from KyoAni even when there are no stops to be pulled. Ironically, I think my biggest issue with Free was its storytelling–and it’s what made me glad I waited until it ended to see if I actually wanted to buy it, because by the time we reached that point, I didn’t–but that’s something that will most likely be better in the second season. And there’s always the light novel, which is getting a sequel.

                The MC of KnK was such a shame, you have no idea. I was absolutely thrilled to fine out that KENN would be doing his voice and then we were stuck with that awful hackneyed characterization and scenario. I watched half the series on the strength of that casting alone before I had to call it quits–liking a voice actor doesn’t mean anything if all that dribbles out of the characters mouth is blathering about his sexual fetishes.

                • puyopop says:

                  I think it shows Ishidate has a terrible sense of comedic timing that comes across as having unfortunate bad implications.

                  The guy, however, seems to really likes action sequences and adult females considering Kyoukai no Kanata has by far the most number of active adults females in a KyoAni title. Maybe he should consider doing a series based around those aspects. That’s a niche that has yet to be revisited, and their adult female characters tend to be well liked by the otaku.

      • AnimePhoenix says:

        I don’t believe that Free! has anything to do with it. With Chuuni, people just lost interest I presume(I think with storefront it can only reach about 8k) and Kyokai no Kanata…like musouka, when I heard KENN was voicing the MC I was ecstatic. But, that dwindled down pretty soon. I dropped the show at episode 4 or 5. KnK just wasn’t good enough.

        KyoAni have Tamako Love Story planned for Spring and I don’t think there’s a chance they’ll do a TV show AND a movie at the same time but if they do, it’ll probably be Amagi. The first chapter was just scanlated and I checked it out and it wasn’t bad but nothing really stood out from it. I’ll probably skip it.

        And I too really hope that they’re not going to animate Myriad Colors Phantom World. Naturally I haven’t seen the source material but looks so bland.

        • layercake says:

          I think the biggest fear I have is the otaku are starting to get tired of KyoAni’s cute girl schtick. Maybe they should consider what puyopop said and try new grounds that still aims at males. Or something more omnipandering again.

          • AnimePhoenix says:

            KnK to some extent was omni-pandering. I’m obviously talking about Akihito x Hiromi. And I don’t know about Akihito but Hiromi was at least somewhat of a success I think.

            But…about them getting tired of KyoAni’s cute girls….I don’t think so. I don’t much about that though.

            One thing which I’d really like KyoAni to do, which would cause a sh*tstorm again would be if KyoAni made a Male Idol anime. This occurred to me after I saw how much money KyoAni was making on Free!’s Drama CDs, radio CDs etc.

            There’s a reasonable amount of idol anime aimed at otaku right now. The only one aimed at females/fujoshi is UtaPri. And we all know what a success that one is. I feel another male idol anime, especially if it was made by KyoAni would strike a chord with fujoshi. It’s an untapped market.

            • layercake says:

              Nah, they should try for mixed-gendered dance crew and have dance offs with other various crews to really push their animation to its limits just like that snippet on the first cultural festival episode of Hyouka.

              Everybody wins on that one!

              • something says:

                Honestly I think KyoAni should just make the anime they want to make. Even the shows people call “flops” sell enough that they’re not in any danger so I say let them keep doing whatever their staff feels passionate about. If they have multiple sub-2k series in a row then maybe it’d be time to re-assess their business, but they’re not even remotely near that point. Their worst selling self-owned IP averaged 3,684 which is decidedly “average”.

                I think we all spend far too much time trying to back-seat drive KyoAni’s business strategy. I’m guilty of it too at times, and I understand it comes with the territory of them being a well-known brand name, and in a lot of cases it’s just an expression of fans’ passion for the studio. But when all is said and done they know what they want to do and they would know what’s feasible financially. KyoAni is very unlikely to ever get anywhere near where they were years ago when they churned out 20k smash hits one after the other, but that was a huge anomaly to begin with.

                I’ll just let them be what they want to be. I’m sure I’ll greatly enjoy almost everything they put out regardless.

                • puyopop says:

                  I await the day KyoAni starts using that really unique character designs that was on one of their commercials that looked like from those e-surance commercials.

                  Or take Gou’s character design and personality and build a series around that.

    Full list is out! All 5 LoveLive! volumes which had stock (except #5) ranked! New season average for LoveLive, 28962 according to a tweet, now beating Free! But still quite shy of 30K.

    • something says:

      Yes I’ll need a few hours to get the list up, should be leaving for work now and all, but all the in stock volumes did rank (meh). 36 weeks for v1 is the most times any volume has ever ranked.

      • hpulley says:

        The FirstLoveLive! concert BD also ranked, now at over 12K. We hadn’t seen it for a while since it was below 9K so it has had a steady trickle of sales as well.

        They will be having a mini-live at a gaming convention to promote their game. Tickets sold out in 2 minutes… This isn’t the prediction thread but look out spring 2014 season, LoveLive! 2 is coming!

        • hpulley says:

          Volume 5 of LoveLive! being out of stock is curious as it was the lowest seller according to what you have by 2K:

    Full rankings are now available. I’ll do the weekly ranking summary when I get a chance.

  5. NATAPORI says:

    Ah,Awesome Love Live! for long tail.Even Free! will add DVD Vol.5 can’t catch up,DVD Vol.5 add 278 copies from monthly sell make average sell is 28,887 now .I’m waiting for next week and mid year summary for last average sell.

    Evangelion 3.33 can hit 40K in the last with long tail so I’m not surprise.
