Sales War 2014

Which studio will emerge with the top selling show from this year?

Some studios that could be in the running:

Kyoani
>Chuunibyou 2
>Amagi Brilliant Park
>Free 2 (?)

SHAFT
>Mekaku City Actors
>Nisekoi

Sunrise
>Love Live 2
>Gundam Origins

Ufotable
>Fate/Stay Night
>Girls' Work

Madhouse
>Mahouka
>No Game No Life

Production IG
>Haikyuu!!
>Psycho-Pass 2

A-1
>Sword Art Online 2

Diomedia
>Kantai Collection

David
>Jojo's Stardust Crusaders
>>
Sunrise, Ufotable and Diomedia.
>>
Only Sunrise, Ufotable, Diomedia and A-1 matter.
>>
Aniplex is growing too powerful. If some miracle could allow shaft to break free from them, all would be right with the world.

I think you forgot DEEN
>>
>>100343441
Isn't this KanColle shit really popular?
>>
Stardust Crusaders is Japans bible, no way it isn't the top selling show of the year unless something comes completely out of left field
>>
>>100343489
1.5 million players popular, yes.
>>
>>100343349
Kagerou project is pretty fucking boring.
>>
Ufotable without a doubt will be at the very top. Fate/Stay Night will be the stop selling anime of 2014.

It's also pretty fucking popular, which is what we're discussing.

Depends on where you get your numbers. Touhou had more circles (includes music and games) but a lot of places say that Kancolle had more doujins.
>>
>>100343489
Because playing a shitty browser game and drawing fanart costs no money. The /a/ circlejerk thinks most of those idiots are going to flock to buy the garbage diomedea is going to churn out.
>>
>>100343564
People played it for the songs, but it was a boring as hell game.

Characters sucked major dicks too, particularly with their interactions. Why is suffering such a major theme now
>>
>>100343554
>>100343587

Touhou has a a convention dedicated completely to it, in addition to the massive numbers they have at Comiket.
>>
>>100343621
>Kagerou Project
>Game

What the fuck are you talking about
>>
Mahouka and Kancolle will sell the most.
>>
>>100343445
PP only sold like 9k, that's fucking nothing compared to the other shows.
>>
I agree with >>100343594
By that logic Touhou manga would be the top-sellers in Japan.
>>
>>100343750
I'm saying sure as in I agree, P-P is not really comparable to the rest.
>>
Fate/Stay Night will sell the most, both seasons of Zero together reached nearly 100k box sets sold, and F/SN is popular as fuck in Nippland. Only shows that can possibly counter it are Gundam Origin if it has the same success that SEED had and Mekaku City Actors which is currently the second best-selling LN on the market as of now.
>>
>>100343054
F/SN will sell well regardless of how good or bad it is. SAO 2 and Jojo should be pretty successful to.

Top Selling Light Novels of 2013

*1位 2,006,033部 Sword Art Online
*2位 1,051,305部 Kagerou Days
*3位 *,947,772部 Mahouka

With SHAFT behind something like Kagerou I can only see it selling huge amounts. They'll finally have their third big hit.
>>
>>100343798
Origin will definitely be a hit should it come out. I doubt it will be released in 2014 though.

No it's because the story is quite good. Do you just like spouting shit or what? I mean I'm used to it on /a/ but just curious if you did anything other than maybe listen to one song. Resembles vocaloids is a stupid as fuck thing to say.
>>
>>100343932
It will finally put all those "apart from Monogatari and Dokes every SHAFT show is a flop" argument. Truth be told I'm surprised that SHAFT is doing Kagerou. Gender balanced/omnipandering shows don't usually seem to be their bag.

>>100343947
Or maybe people like it for the characters. That's why I like it, at least. You're free to project however you like though.

SEED and Zero's sales were a difference of about 10k but one has to remember that it was Zero animated, Fate/Stay Night is already a gargantuan property and Origin most likely will come in 2015 at the earliest.

>>100343997
Does anyone really care about how much SHAFT shows sell? I'm glad *monogatari and Madoka sold so well because I thought they deserved the success, but usually I only care about sales if I want to see more of a show.

With SHAFT that doesn't even seem to matter because they'll make multiple seasons of shit that either does meh or completely flops. SZS continued for way longer than I thought it would have, Arakawa somehow got a second season, Maria Holic, and so on.

Have you ever seen a sales thread?

Kagerou Days a good fit for shaft for a couple reasons:
-Comedy
-Dream sequences
-Multiple perspectives, so you can show each characters view of the world with SHAFT backgrounds
-Naked sky people
-Mary's feet
>>
>>100344107
I haven't even heard of any news regarding that project since like 2012.
>>
>>100343995
Nobody would even give a shit about the series if it were not for the songs. Every single characters are one dimensional and comes with similar settings: Somebody they cared died, or they had a shitty life, now they granted powers depending on their previous circumstances but they're still living somewhat shitty lives licking each other wounds.

Origin preview for Spring and it will air for Fall, same as Age back in 2011.

everything Shaft makes goes to Aniplex so theres no point in caring about sales since Shaft is perpetually poor. Unless Shaft makes their own studio anime, then I'll care.

It has to come after the last episode of Unicorn which is in June. So probably in the summer also AGE was announced during the summer during June.

Nah, they aren't fitting for that. What I think shaft might do is make different OPs for the different perspectives. In the novels, that is Shintarou, Takane, Hibiya, and Azami.

I want a Mary themed ED that can go up in the hall of fame with Renai Circulation and Sweets Parade.
>>
>>100344435
I hate Vocaloid but Kagerou is ok. I'm not in it for the music, I'll say that much. If I want to watch the videos I'll just listen to a Nico chorus version.

It's mentioned in the link the anon above posted. Either way we'll probably find out if it's still in the running next week at Tomino's press conference.

>>100344208
I want to believe. I wonder whether G-Reko or Origin will come first, and whether G-Reko is still going to be UC or not.

G-Reko isn't even Gundam.

nope, op is children record and ed is summertime record. word of god says so.

insert song is still possible though,
>>
>>100343489
The only reason why it's big is because it's a F2P browser game and that isn't pay to win, which means casual poorfags play it, so the anime will probably sell 6K if its lucky.
>>
>>100344525
Probably G-Reko since Sunrise or rather Bandai doesn't give a shit about Tomino and the storyboards are already underway while we have no idea if they're started in Origins yet.

>>100344597
I think you're a little mixed up. Children Record is the OP, but Summertime Record is the ending song, as in final song of the series, not the ED.
>>
>>100344597
I don't think it was meant like that. Wasn't the children record single released with the first LN? And summertime record is the "ending" in the sense that it's the last song to get a video(until Jin changed his mind and gave shounen brave one).

Sunrise.

Never underestimate the gunota when OYW is involved, let alone a remake.

What if they make Outer Science the ED

What if SHAFT make Suffering: The Animated TV Series?

It's not that popular on /a/, most likely because of the lottery-based entry and the fact it's entirely in Japanese, but it's very popular in Japan.

The Kancolle generals on /a/ are fairly popular, and the /jp/ Kancolle thread is currently the fastest moving thing on that board. Pretty much every thread there reaches 1500-2000 posts before 404. But yeah, it hasn't fully breached the gaijin market and I'm not sure it ever will.
>>
Shaft will have the highest average sales thiy year (there is also Hanamonogatari).

KanColle. Mahouka or Mekaku City Actors will become the best seller this year.
>>
>>100345265
KnB sales don't even qualify it in the top 10 of all time anime sales.

What makes you think some volleyball crap which is viewed more like a feminine sport gonna sell like 50K discs?

Asians only give a shit about ping pong, soccer, baseball, and basketball.

You think your volleyball crap will be number one anime this year?

I predict A-1 will win with SAO 2, it's not good but I'm certain it'll sell like fucking no bodies business anyway.
>>
>>100350879
I doubt it. The first season already lost to Fate/Zero and Monogatari in 2012, so why would the second season do any better than either of those now?

Sure, SAO S2 will likely get around 35k sales, but it certainly won't be the top seller for the whole year. As for the other upcoming new LN adaptations, I'd be surprised if any of them exceed 25k sales.

Personally, I think the top seller of 2014 will be either Gundam Origins or F/SN.
>>
>>100351966
Eh, good point, I took another look at the figures from 2012 and you're right. Though I actually doubt that it will be F/SN since there's already been an anime of that, unless it's drastically different to the first one I don't think it will sell all that well. Gundam, on the other hand seems to consistently be a pretty good seller so you might have a point.

Gundam Unicorn will probably sell 150k+.

I can't see the Origin doing as well, unless they go for the same format as Unicorn. But then there's no point because they'll have to condense everything anyway.

Love Live S2 is a guaranteed 20k+ sales, and I guess another Studio 8 series this year (not nice coupling) will get 20k sales.

Mekaku City Actors has the potential to do really well. Hanamonogatari is another 40k sales, with two volumes.

SAO S2, I think it'll sell worse than the first season. Not by much though.

JoJo is going to get at least 20k.

I can't see anything else competing with these.

>I don't really see any major sales hit in that lineup, I mean REALLY major, apart from SAO 2.

That's because you're either new or really out of touch.

Not announced and probably won't even air in 2014 because KyoAni seems busy with Chuu2Ren, Tamako and Amagi this year.

All i know is that Jojo part 3 will sell like fucking hotcakes.

Provided they don't fuck up, of course.

And then David will get enough money to make Part 4, the best part.
