Default Anime BD/DVD Sales Thread

Alright, I tried this before, but I didn't like the irregular pattern of MAL's full numbers and Philie-web not listing exact numbers, so I gave up. This time I'll be taking my numbers directly from 2ch and livedoor so I'll have the full numbers when they're out regardless of whether MAL news posts them. So, let's try this again. Here's a little write up I did to help better understand the scale of anime sales.

Quote:
-Less than 1000: Complete failure for late night anime, but is common among mainstream/daytime anime, which rely on other methods to produce revenue such as ratings and merchandising. Examples of this would be Naruto, Bleach, OP, Fairy Tale, Detective Conan, and most noitaminA slot anime.

-1000-2000: Pretty much same as above. Some examples of recent late night anime that bombed like this would be LOLH, B Gata H Kei, and Ookami-san.

-2000-3000: Still a failure, but the show has at least some fans but didn't sale well for various reasons, whether they be not enough hype, relatively boring plot, or too :deep:. Some recent examples would be Occult Gakuin, Shin Koihime Musou, and UraBoku.

-3000-4000: This is around break even point for most anime, or as 2ch calls it, the Manabi line. It's not exactly a failure, since no money was lost, but it's not successful or a hit either, since no money was made. An example of this would be Arakawa Under the Bridge and Ichiban Ushiro.

-4000-5000: This is around where you start to see profit being made. Anime that sale in this area aren't what you would call hits, but it's still a decent accomplishment for late night anime. Recent examples are Ikkitousen Xtreme Xecutor and Mayoi Neko Overrun. An older one is all seasons of Zero no Tsukaima.

-5000-6000: This is where some of the more prominent anime among the niche market sale. By that, I mean the more memorable titles of a year. They aren't exactly hits in the sense that they're known among outside of otaku circles, but within them they're common names. Recent examples are Motto To LOVE-Ru, Hyakka Ryouran Samurai Girls, Amagami SS, and Kissxsis here.

-6000-7000: Very good for late night anime. Once again, not hits, but they're doing very well and are moderately popular among the niche market of otaku. This is still within the realm of the 5000-6000 area. Here you have your Seitokai Yakuindomo, BakaTest, and Sekirei ~Pure Engagement~.

-7000-8000: This is where you start to go from being niche within a niche to being broadly popular within the otaku niche. Could be considered a hit among otaku, although this is a sort of gray area in the the sense most anime don't sale exactly in this range, they're either with the 5000-7000 range or skip into double digits. The only anime that comes to my mind immediately that sales in this range are Katanagatari and HOTD.

-8000-10000: This is where you start to see the most memorable anime over years sale, extremely good for late night anime and a mile stone. Still a bit hesitant to call series in this area hits, but their at least extremely successful. The first DARKER THAN BLACK and Sengoku BASARA seasons sold in this area.

-10000-12000: Where you start to see anime staple marks at. These are the series that even people who aren't otaku will at least have seen or heard of somewhere. This are is ambiguous in the sense that stuff that sales higher initially end up here from sales tapering off a bit. Anime in this are usually have initial sales of around 15000-16000 or higher. Stuff like Strike Witches, Durarara!!, and the first season of Toaru Majutsu no Index end up here after the first few volumes. Toradora! and both seasons of Shakugan no Shana sold around this area. DARKER THAN BLACK: Ryuusei no Gemini also sold here.

-12000-15000: Most anime that end up in the 10000-12000 range overall start out selling around here. As stated above, first season of Index and both seasons of Strike Witches started out here. First season of Hakuouki and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood also sale around this range. Sengoku BASARA Two sales in this area.

-15000-20000: Pretty much same as above.

-20000-30000: Durarara and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood started out in this area but tapered off later on. This area is ambiguous in the sense that the only anime that consistently stay in this area over every volume are heavily otaku supported. Still, some of the most popular anime sales around here. Toaru Kagaku no Railgun, Azumanga Daioh, and Fate/stay night are the only anime I can think of that consistently sold in this range.

-30000-50000: Godly and legendary. This is where the household name or super popular otaku anime sale. First Fullmetal Alchemist, Macross Frontier, Code Geass, Gundam 00, Haruhi, Angel Beats!, Lucky Star!, K-ON!, etc.

-50000-80000: Nearly impossible. Only TV series that have sold here are Bakemonogatari, Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica, and Gundam SEED.
List of vol 1 sales by season:
Winter '10 | Spring '10 | Summer '10 | Fall '10

*List keys take inspiration from Mania but the actual numbers and format come from 2ch. I'll be doing my own lists from here on.

It's a bit surprising how many of the DVDs didn't rank this week, I guess the barrier of entry for DVDs was just too high this week with all the series coming out and the rankings stopping at 2,218. I'm guessing that a lot of the ones that didn't rank were just below the entry level, particularly Ika Musume and YnS, which both probably had around 2,000 DVDs sold. Same with a lot of the other higher ranked BDs. Although when you get down to the BDs that sold around 2,000, the DVDs are probably only in the high hundreds, if that. I feel like PSG is over 3,000 sold with DVD numbers though.

Anyway, as expected, Oreimo dominates this season, even outpacing my expectations in both DVD and BDs, although I wasn't far off. I thought it would sale around the high 3,000s-low 4,000s, and the BDs to be in the high 16,000s-low 17,000s. And sales continue to drop off for Kuroshitsuji, although that's usual for it. The DVD will still probably cross 10,000 over the next few weeks. Same deal with DRRR!!, although it has more wiggle room. And lol SoraOto, that's a big drop off from first season sales, and the DVDs are at best only in the low 1,000s. I haven't caught up with the second season myself, but I'm guessing it must have been pretty disappointing for this to happen. Not even the announcement of a movie for it had an effect on sales. Hell, the idea for a movie adaptation of this is laughable in itself.

And finally, congratulations to both Ika-chan and YnS, two series which were both kind of black horses this season and turned it around to become probably the 4th and 5th best selling series this season, respectively. With DVDs added in both would probably be around the mid 8,000 area. And going off of pre-order data, the Sora arc of YnS will be even higher in sales than this first volume was.

Haven't seen B Gata H Kei myself, but it's the kind of series that can easily turn off the otaku market. You know, the kind with their highly unrealistic 'if she's not pure, then she's not mai waifu anymore!1111' school of thought.

I'm surprised that Yosuga no Sora even sold that much. Sales I've seen for series like that (outside of heavy hitters like the KyoAni adaptations of Key series) aren't usually that high. But like Suzuku mentioned, with the pre-orders for the Sora arc being high it's all about her. Wouldn't surprise me if we saw a noticeable drop in sales for the episodes where she doesn't appear.

Panty and Stocking serves an even bigger f u to the whole pure waifu thing, but they're lapping it up over there. i assume so anyways, judging by the fanart and high demand for the ost.

Partly because of what Retro said, partly because it wasn't really anything special. Ofc, I enjoyed the series myself, but I can understand why people weren't excited to buy it. In a way, it pissed off both halves of the "otaku" market; the creepy, hikikomori half that was mad because Yamada was a self-professed "slut", and the other half of the market that likes new, interesting shows that aren't "perverted". It was just destined to bomb.

Like the post said, the DVD numbers didn't manage to rank due to the unusually high threshold for this week, but they can't be over 2,218, as that's the threshold limit for this week. The DVD sales are probably in the low 1,000s, if that much. Sooo, lol.

Nah, each volume contains the individual arcs of the girls. This first volume was Kazuha's arc. So it's not just Sora, although her arc will sale significantly more than the others, probably around 7,000-9,000. And in case you're wondering, each volume includes episode 1, Kazuha and Akira's vols both include episode 2, and both Nao and Sora's vols include episode 7.

I just think majority of otaku just don't have good taste and need to get their dicks wet.

Oh, it turns out Kodaokawa had distribution problems and sold out of PSG. Numbers should be higher than they are.

Technically not "distribution problems". Kadokawa expected PSG to only sell about 2000 copies per volume and for the most part, it's sold out at most vendors. I assume GAINAX/Kadokawa expected to make up for the rest of the money in merchandises.

Also, the price of a PSG BD/DVD is at least 500-1500 yen higher than most other anime that aired this fall.

Thanks for this thread! It's actually quite useful!
btw how much does Bleach sell? I heard somewhere in this forum it usually outsells Naruto and One Piece (I'm talking about the DVDs of course)
