Akagi *1,120 (2) (Madhouse)
2006/03/24 **N/A* DVD-BOX I (Thirteen episodes up to DVD-BOX II)
2006/05/24 *1,120 DVD-BOX II
Akagi failed in DVD sales.
I think everyone knew that.
stop trolling please?
It's too manly for japan animu fans.
And? Akagi and Kaiji are very popular with middle aged men and got really good TV ratings.
MOE DEFEATS GAR
Let us assume Lucky Star costs $30 USD per DVD and each volume sells 30,000 copies. There are 9 volumes.
30 x 30,000 x 9 = 8,100,000
Kyoto Animation = businessmen.
They know their target audience well.
No wonder we get lots of shit now: everyone now knows it sells.
KyoAni learnt their marketing strategies from the best marketers out there.
You mean Gainax.
>the best marketers out there.
As much as this pisses me off I must admit that its true.
Surely you meant Gainax.

It's closer to &50
Gainax's stuff, hate it or not, has at least SOME quality to it usually.
Sunrise on the other hand can feed their audience a plate of shit and they'll still eat it. See Gundam 00.
It's closer to $50.
Gainax has the best marketing device.
Sunrise are better marketers. I mean, they've pretty much ruled DVD charts for the past 4 years.
Protip: DVD cost more than that in Japan. And limited editions even more.
And Sunrise still sells more overall, unless it's named Eva.
13 volumes x $30 x 68,729 average sold = $26,804,310
And that's just the Animu TV series.
Sunrise gets their piece of the pie from Gunpla. dvd sales are just a bonus
Which goes to show their marketing prowess.
The DVD sales can flop and they will still overall profit from it.
Nobody is talking about quality there, retard. In term of milking and marketing, Sunrise and Gainax are at the top.
Or did you want a circlejerking thread against Sunrise?
How is making quality shit so you can have a higher profit margin not part of marketing? You're the retard here.
60$ x 267,439 = 16,046,340$ in DVD simple sales.
KyoAni: "IT PRINTS MONEY!"
$60 per DVD for Lucky Shit?
Jesus. Fucking. Christ.
For the lovely amount of TWO episodes per disc.
Are we not talking about the special edition here?
I wonder how does the regular edition sell.
(BTW: 2 eps per DVD. 60$. Lol.)
So the next time you cunts jump down Bandai's throat remember the elevens are getting screwed even WORSE!
I guess that'll work..
I'll jump down both of their throats...?
I think I'm interested to join you in this great effort.
I guess that's why these companies never produce anything outstandingly awesome anymore. Well I guess its not like KyoAni produced anything made of fuckwin.
who is in teh OP picture?
RE is $50, SE is $60
It's your taste that sucks, not the shows.
Have a nice day.
I DON'T LIKE IT, IT MEANS IT'S SHIT. IT'S TRUE BECAUSE I SAID IT.
It's Tyrenol in the OP pic. He's an angry lunatic.
OP's numbers are not unusual. Only otaku actually buy anime DVDs, and Akagi is not aimed at otaku. KyoAni's shows are tailor made to fit the current trends in moe and whatnot.
Gundam has always been for geeks. Sales numbers are not surprising.
Where the fuck do I buy this shit when it comes out? It better not be online I hate to wait
