    Re: Japan's Weekly Anime Blu-Ray Rankings

    All things are relative with anime sales. It may look like a series is not selling well, but it gets a second season anyway. At best sales give a rough estimate of popularity. In their quarterly financial summary, MJPR's financial backers stated that they are already considering a second season. Tamako Market has a "new project" in production despite selling about the same number of copies as MJPR. Don't rule out a second season based on seemingly low sales. Whatever logic anime studio's follow, it is not based on information accessible to fans.

    What I find interesting is that Gin no Saji 1 did not chart at all. I had liked season one, I thought it very enjoyable.

    ---------- Post added October 01, 2013 at 10:35 AM ---------- Previous post was September 24, 2013 at 12:06 PM ----------

    September 23-291. Love Live 7 (Limited First Edition) (31,470)
    2. Uta no Prince-sama - Maji Love 2000% 4 (12,789)
    3. Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S Volume 3 (Limited First Pressing) (12,769)
    4. JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Volume 9 (Limited First Pressing) (11,751)
    5. Oreimo 2 4 (Limited Complete Pressing) (11,519)
    6. Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion 5.1ch Blu-ray Box (11,256)
    7. Mobile Suit Gundam Seed Destiny HD Remaster Blu-ray Box 2 Limited First Edition (9,377)
    8. Suisei no Gargantia Blu-ray Box 2 (8,129)
    9. High School DxD New Volume 1 (Blu-ray) (7,023)
    10. Oregairu Volume 4 (Limited First Edition) (6,420)
    18. Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya Blu-ray Volume 1 (5,978)
    20. Kinmoza Volume 1 (Blu-ray) (5,645)


    We're starting to get a better idea of the bestsellers from the summer season. Free, is the temporary bestseller. That will change when the first Monogatari Second Season blu-ray comes out later this month. Highschool DxD is doing well, so are Fate/kaleid and Kinmoza. I'm curious to see how Watamote does. I believe volume one goes on sale today.

    UtaPri is still going strong.

    Am a bit surprised Gargantia is the best selling of the MJPR, Valvrave, "anime with mecha" trio of this year.

    VVV was a little... different. I loved it, but Gargantia was a higher quality anime. I have not seen MJPR, and can not comment.

    Free! is really summers best and only hit so far I think.
    Hataraku seems like one of the better performing LN adaptations I think.

    Wait Infinite Stratos is becoming the best selling fall anime or something, that seems surprising.

    Re: Japan's Weekly Anime Blu-Ray Rankings

    The first season of IS was extremely popular when it aired in 2011. BD's regularly sold over 20,000 copies each. IS2 should be comparable, one of the most popular series of the season. "Long Vacation" is actually just episode one, with some new content added. That's why it's out so early in the season. The next BD set won't be out until December.

    Nothing noteworthy. Fall anime won't start coming out for a few more weeks. not many of the summer anime have sold well, except for Kinimoza, Monogatari, and Free.

    DeSu2 and Karneval fell far. If I had known that the western release of Karneval would have been so far off, I would have worked towards trying to import it (since I think it was bd subbed ).

    UtaPri still destroying the sales charts, totally glad it got enough sales to make an S3 a reality (Though probably in part to all the merchandise and musics sells and game sales).

    UtiPri is a big franchise. Season two is even more popular than season one had been.
