Anime that flopped but deserved more sales.
Example? Pic related.
No, I'm pretty sure it got about as many sales as that piece of work deserved.
I'll say the obvious: SnW
Vividred didn't flop but it deserved more sales, when you realize it's not Strike Witches it's really good.
But no sales was well deserved, it's a piece of shit
Spice and Wolf
total eclipse because it destroyed any hope of ever getting another muv luv anime
I ended up dropping this around episode 6. Did it get any better in the second half? People seemed to be waiting for those psycho bitches.
It was my AotS
It didnt deserve shit.
>buttmad it wasn't Stalker the anime
>Did it get any better in the second half?
Did GoHands' trademark filters really doom the show? Or was it because it only aired on cable?
It sold 6k thanks to an event, OP
Be wary of all the old presales numbers floating around
They mean shit until the release actually happens
It got exactly the amount of sales it deserved; it's time to let that series die a quiet, forgotten death OP.
But what about Tokyo Ravens? I know it's still airing, but it deserves to sell more.
season 2 never ;_;
>no zombie yura
For an ecchishit show, this had surprisingly good animation.
I really started enjoying it until the ending. Though that's not why it sold badly.
It was quite bad, had a few cute girls but that's it.
I thought that sold relatively well
Shows like that don't sell in general, only otaku or narutards pandering sells.
Coppelion was fucking horrible ugly shit.
How the fuck did it even get an adaptation?
Picrelated flopped too hard and It was the last of it's kind. A golden age anime made when golden age has already ended.
If I won the lottery though, I would fund a ML anime to completion. Wouldn't even care if it bombed.

Only in our hearts
That character development was pretty fucking great.
Hooooowever, it didn't seem to know what it was doing with all it's bits and pieces, whilst individually great, together just didn't feel cohesive. I mean, you had the supernatural chuuni stuff which was cute and well done, plus eye-bleedingly beautiful, but didn't really go anywhere; then you had MC-chan great character growth that kinda got a bit truncated at the end; then you had the two club president's back stories and continued rivalry, whilst fairly well done, didn't really go anywhere.
Throw in the pretty weak but inoffensive supporting cast, that was really large, and the actual survival games, not to mention that weird kinda utena-ish vibe that cropped up here and there and you'v e just got all this material and no where to go with it in, the, what 12(?), episodes they had to work with?
The closest parallel I can draw is GuP, and C3-bu did each of it's individual elements better, but sales wise, can't even be compared.
And I liked the damn show.
Speaking of SHAFT, I think Natsu no Arashi should have done better.
>Shin Sekai Yuri/Yaoi
Aku no Rotoscope
>Coppelion was fucking horrible ugly shit.
>How the fuck did it even get an adaptation?
It got Green-Lighted, of course.
Your real question should be how the heck did it get green lighted. The producers managed to line up sponsors for the costs as well as television stations willing to provide time slots for the show. If you draw parallels from the USA, it is entirely possible to have shows running in certain time slots solely because advertisers wanted to show ads in those time slots and didn't care what kind of show it was as long as there was a minimum number of viewers in that time slot. To the advertisers, paying for the cost of producing a low-budget anime show might be less than the cost of simply buying the channel time outright on an anime show that they didn't make. Some american cartoon series were heavily underwritten by cereal and toy companies because it was cheaper to get advertising time that way than to simply just buy the channel time.
God, that whole "Bitch I need ammo" look she gave was fantastic, I loved it so hard. I just wish the last episode wouldve been put somewhere else other than the last slot, it seemed more like an OVA than an actual episode, and episode 11 seemed to do a good enough job of wrapping things up.
Samurai Flamenco. If it had money, that would have been the best thing in years imho
You sure? It didn't even rank in Oricon.
Doesn't explain why it only aired on cable though. What is ever explained why they decided not to show Coppelion on free TV?
Coppelion sucked, glad it flopped.
>tfw no decent doujins
This was too goddamn cute.
Did coppelion have any advertisment?
I only remember Steins Gate and Code Geass being really advertisment heavy.
I guess big channels consideret it too bad for their time.
>Did coppelion have any advertisment?
Animax Asia promoted it like crazy.
I meant advertisment IN coppelion, like Pizza Hut in Geass and Dr.Pepper the aimation.
I don't think so. It did have Aoi and Ibara crying all the time though.
I know this is trolling, but OP is right - after the first few episodes with too much serious drama it became clear that this show has an absurd streak that is key when approaching it. The directors can be blamed for not making that obvious earlier, but once you got into it you could access it just fine and it was a pretty entertaining ride.
Not that this matters on /a/, it was one of the IRC's fall target and too many new retards (courtesy of KlK) fell for it, and the rest were the usual impatient and unattentive teenagers that comprise most of the board.
I'll describe the anime with one word:
I feel your pain.
>Deserved more sales.
No, it got what it deserved.
I came here to post this, but you beat me to it.
Was this considered a flop? It certainly deserved higher sales though.
<2k is almost always considered a flop (KMB is a notable exception).
Sakurasou also deserved more sales.
>deserving more sales
I like the manga and all but GoHands made a monster and people could tell.
Waiting for second season since 2009
Now even manga died out
KMB was so cheap it was still profitable anyway though, they actually said a second season is possible.
Which is good, because I'm up to ep3 right now and loving it.
But it is confirmed, m8
We are speculating whether it will be Euro Front, Schwarzesmarken, or original work, but new Muv-Luv anime is as much as given.
>Using Oricon for presales
Oricon doesn't rank presales, you've failed it sir. Stalker ranks presales. Oricon ranks sales, and not a single anon has posted the actual Oricon numbers for Coppelion, which are 4,033 BDs and 2,500 DVDs sold, for a total of 6,533
I wasn't using Oricon for preorders, you said it sold 6K and I remembered reading Oricon's ranking and Coppelion wasn't even ranked, which is why I asked you.
HOW ABOUT ANIMATING EXTRA
EXTRA IS LITERALLY MOESHIT
ANIMATING EXTRA WOULD REQUIRE A BUDGET OF 1 YEN
Sasami-san was glorious.
I liked it but I like everything. It's a shame it turned into X-Men
Where did this show go wrong?
Extra is nothing without Unlimited
Unlimited is necessary for Alternative
Alternative makes you crawling in your skin when going back to Extra
>>101026486 is right, you'd have to do all three to do it justice.
