It seems like significance of pre-order ranking definitely showed here. Sadly, some did not have big buying power as expected, such as Panty&Stocking. (however, it seems like PanSto focuses more on other source of income than just BD/DVD sales.) Again, Hakuoki fujoushi powah's massive.

and, fan service does sell, moral fags. Ishihara's shit bill will definitely be a huge impact.

ringOtamegane's Last Words

I will be writing failure analysis... when I actually have time... >_>


  1. OMG!
    My favorite Kami Nomi (btw i am not really kami nomi manga fag) and Soredemo is doomeedd!!! >___<

    well, i did enjoy others like Ore imo, Ika Musume, Tamayura... but aside ore imo, they werent that great anyway...

    Meanwhile for Soremachi... I knew it wouldnt get great sale but i was hoping it could reach 2000 at least

  2. Surprised PantyStocking bombed.

    More surprised that KamiNomi did so poorly, since they bothered giving it a second season. But then, wasn't that true for Arakawa as well?

  3. By the way, do you have any kind of RSS feed so I can subscribe to this blog?

  4. @myswordisunbelievablydull: RSS is on the right side of URL.

    If you want link;

  5. Well,
    Not all japanese get the parodies or jokes of Panty Stocking though...
    They're supposely no underage watching that show.

    As for Kami Nomi they might proceed to s2 by gambling on some charas including Haqua in S2...
    Otherwise there would be no s2....

  6. @same anon:

    Kami Nomi is split 2-cour project...

  7. ah, that make much more sense
    Since in those girls from s2 was also in pv

  8. But Kami Nomi is still not on sale, right? I've read from chapter 140 that it will be on sale on Jan 26. But it will still bomb anyway. <_<

    By the way, it really pisses me off that a crappy series like Yosuga no Sora has higher sale than SoreMachi. I actually don't mind fanservice. But I really hate hentai series in disguise with TV series which don't have any contents other than s*x/f**king and intend to sell uncensored version in BD/DVD. Seriously, I wouldn't have any problem with it if it is OVA like AkiSora.

  9. ^
    I misread it. It was actually chapter 126.

  10. @anon
    Well, you got the point.
    Actually i dont think Yosuga no Sora would be as success as right now if they sold it as hentai.

    Looks like selling hentai as anime is new marketing strategy which is huge success.
    Dunno why those otakus dont even realizes it.

    And looks like there would be more series like this...
